    NO MORE negative body thoughts.
    NO MORE "I'll do it TOMORROW".
    NO MORE sitting and wishing a thinner me.
    NO MORE eating when not hungry.
    NO MORE waiting for this to get easier.
    NO MORE "I can't".
    NO MORE "It is too hard.
    NO MORE " I am to tired.

    While I was reading Spark articles today I came across this one! It was written as a
    emoticon 4th of July blog emoticon back in 2009 by Nancy Howard. I thought is was so good I just wanted to share it with you!

    "Nancy's “Bill of Rights to Healthy SparkLiving”

    "Thou shall release thyself from thy scale. Thou cannot and should not allow a machine to measure thy self-worth and value.

    Thou shalt accept the obstacles that are inevitable on this journey we call life.

    Thou shalt accept help and guidance from others more knowledgeable and experienced than thyself.

    Thou shalt never give up learning. Education is essential in order for us to change and grow. Don’t ever stop learning and don’t acquiesce to accepting anything as fact. Learn for yourself.

    Thou shalt not allow one off-track day to undo all the positives we have made in our lives. That one extra hot dog, the All-American food, is not going to undo all your hard work to date.

    Thou shalt accept the challenges in life in order to grow.

    Thou shalt never take for granted the health one has now.

    Thou shalt never underestimate the power of small changes.

    Thou shalt appreciate the freedom to live a life of joy and happiness, not one based on the size we wear or the number on the scale.

    Thou shalt thank SparkPeople for totally transforming my life."

    A quote from the Dalai Lama
    "There are only two days in a year that nothing can be done. One is called 'yesterday' and the other is called 'tomorrow', so today is the right day to LOVE, BELIEVE, DO and mostly, LIVE."

    So all I really have to do is live for today and take each one as it comes. If I do each day well I can succeed.

    “You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.” - Jim Rohn

    You absolutely have what it takes. But you do need to take care of yourself to function at your best. You take care of yourself in many ways, including choosing who you spend time with, the books you read, music you listen to, what you eat and how much rest you get. The choices you make absolutely make all the difference – So choose wisely and have a great day.
