I wrote a new blog today, "I am so grateful for my amazing life!" check it out if you want! Here's some of it:

emoticon 6-27-19 Today is '1 of those days". emoticon A day I am SO grateful for my amazing life! emoticon I woke up when I wanted, hugged my DH emoticon the man of my dreams even after 50 years; walked our darling doggie emoticon , Lucy in the just cleaned park, with sprinklers on for us to play in; emoticon sat on our paradise deck, by the pool emoticon & had coffee & raspberry yogurt with walnuts; emoticon swam about 30 minutes; emoticon . emoticon I call this success. Success is when you get to do what you want to do, when you want to do it, with the finances to back you up. My goodness, I am happy to be alive, right now. Who wouldn't be? emoticon (Yes! I DO have bad times, but 75% of my life is just to my choosing! I am SO happy I thought LONG & HARD before I shared this SP blog, I know so many of you are having a hard time. BUT we can help each other, either way, right?) emoticon It has changed my life, forever! (On this my 2659 day of sparking + I received 100 bonus points for spinning the wheel today! emoticon How about you? emoticon

use the trackers everyday..........

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Breathe in love & compassion.. Breathe out peace & forgiveness.

I look at my son and husband. They are my motivation as my parents BOTH died before I graduated college. My father did not get to see me graduate in high school . {My page has my family's history}.To lose one's parents so early in life due to obesity makes one rethink her lifestyle~ although I constantly fight the sweet tooth, I AM going to win ! I have done it BEFORE on SP in 2010 and I WILL do it again !
EVERY day I say ~~ emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I CAN DO THIS !

In God my heart trusts. ----Proverbs 28:7

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

KNOW that the LORD is GOD.It is HE who made us,And we are HIS;
We are HIS people,
The sheep of HIS pasture.

My Personal Training sessions are motivating (like today). I go only once every two weeks now and do my own strength training sessions at home otherwise. When I go, though, we always have new exercises and lots of variety and my muscles get well fatigued. The Personal Trainer is very positive and free with his praise.

Working out on the elliptical and losing inches is inspiring me right now. I'm down 10 documented pounds and am losing inches because my clothes are beginning to bag. This is the first downward movement for the past three months, so I am happy.
