Thank you for visiting my Sparkpage. I'm Vicki and I'm back after quite a few years of not really paying any attention to my physical health. Took a break to look after some other health issues. It became quite a struggle to just get through my days and paying attention to my nutrition and physical activity became too much for me for quite a few years. I'm starting over and hope that I can find the same amazing support from this community as I learned to count on then. I promise I will provide it to anyone who needs anything that I have to give as well.

Motivational Quotes:

"Talk is cheap. It’s what you do that determines the script of your life. Translate your insights, understandings and awareness into purposeful, meaningful, constructive actions. They are of no value until then. Measure yourself and others based on results — not intentions or words."
-Dr. Phil McGraw

"The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don't define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them."
-Denis Watley

Success is falling down nine times and getting up ten.
-Jon Bon Jovi

    Hi Hawtlikeme welcome to SP.

    I noticed your comment on the Ottawa Team's Where do you live in Ottawa.
    First and foremost I'm glad you were able to join us - Great emoticon

    I've not met anyone yet from my home area. I was raised and lived in Cornwall and although I've been living in Ottawa for many years, I'm a Cornwall girl at heart.

    I still visit family/friends on a regular basis.

    This is a great team with tons of support and lots of friends to be made.

    emoticon I hope we get to meet sometime

    I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)
    Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
