I have no problem losing weight. What I am more interested in is living a healthy "sustainable" life style.

To that end, I have found this Spark article that will help me in these efforts.

Mind Over Body
10 Steps to Achieve a Healthy Lifestyle

1. Put the “I” in Your Weight Loss Plan. Learn how knowing the answer to one simple question can improve your chances for success by up to 100%.

2. Take the stress out of weighing in. Is your scale making you crazy? Read about three things you can do to take the stress out of your weigh-ins.

3. Tame your " toxic guilt" before it wipes out your will power . Learn how to exercise your healthy lifestyle conscience and avoid those bad feelings that send you running to the refrigerator every time you slip up.

4. Tame your Emotional Eating Beast . Find out how to inoculate yourself against emotional distress before it leads to mindless eating.

5. Take the mystery out of staying motivated. Take steps to become your own best motivator, and put the problem of disappearing motivation behind you for good.

6. Write your vision statement. Learn why a good vision statement is crucial to success, and what you’ll want to include in yours.

7. Plot your strategy. Read about setting effective lifestyle goals and finding strategies that work.

8. Give yourself a reality check-up. Make sure your own beliefs aren’t getting in your way.

9. Pave the way for persistence. Organize your personal world so that it keeps you going when the going gets tough.

10. Learn from yourself. These important tips explain how you can let your own experience help you create the plan that will work best for you.

    Glad the first day went well...I think it's even harder on the teachers after all the prep work to get ready. Just think, today's Friday..happy weekend.

    Was missing you too - left a reply in your 'denial' post earlier.

    There's always hugs here, if you need them.
    *I still cannot get over how you can be 'relaxed' about riding in Boston.*
    Hope you had a good day.

    I saw your status and copied it to my status for today. It is a long weekend, and I am going out of town, so I will probably leave it up for a couple of days! I am with you in supporting affordable healthcare for all Americans.

    Glad you had fun in the City. Will try to sneak in some fun--but is mostly a work trip.
    Still, NYC is my "red earth of Tara!" and where I get my strength. Can you relate?
