Hi! My name is Lynn. I live with my spouse and three Chihuahuas in Phoenix AZ.

Like many here, I joined SparkPeople.com to lose weight/diet (yuch - I hate that four letter word!). Now I use "manage my health".

After listening and reading a lot on this website, I decided I didn't need a diet. I learned I needed to develop a healthy lifestyle. I just didn't know what I was getting myself out of and into :-)

I just rewrote my goals, modifying my program to be reasonable and achievable. The hardest part is realizing I am talking changing daily, little by little so that at some point, the changes aren't changes anymore - it is simply the way I live.

In the process, I get to meet a lot of fantastic people (yes, I am talking about you!), get healthy, and have fun.

Who knew I would be so blessed?!

    We've all had those days or weeks (or sometimes longer) when we fall off the wagon and lose sight of our healthy goals. The good news is that today is a new day, and there's always an opportunity to start fresh. If you've been struggling to find the motivation you need, look no further. What is one thing you can do today to get things moving in the right direction again? Don't give up on the goals you've worked so hard to achieve. Success is possible!

    2 points for Saturday. Weird 'spins' this morning? Got a 1, then a 2, then a 3...reminded me of Lawrence Welk!! Guess that shows how old I am?

    Enjoy the weekend. Hope you had a great 4th? I spent the day napping and reading and cuddling with the pups so it doesn't get much better than that!

    Celebrate ALL you are! emoticon
    It's easy to dwell on what we're not enough of, or too much of, and to focus on what we haven't got or what we're just plain not. But so what if you're not perfect? No one is. Really!! And you are something that is so much better: YOU! There is no one more special. Hope you are planning a wonderful week?!!!
