Good afternoon, Team.

My name is Latisha and I decided to join this positive team. I am interested in learning new ways to feel better fast and to have more joy in my life. I've been apart of Spark People since 2015.

In addition, I am 5 % Challenge Leader for the Rowdy Rebels Team and a Co-Leader for the Biggest Loser Emerald GEMS Team. I love to encourage and inspire others to be better and to do better. I've also created my own blog called Renew Inspiration. If you love to read positive and uplifting blog posts, then follow the link below:

I did not know you were named after patti page.. that is so cool.. I always liked listening to her..did you know she got the name page because she sang in front of a truck for Page Milk in Oklahoma. I am interested in inspiring others to lead their best life ever. Whatever that means for them.. I am also passionate about seeing others keep active in the later stages of life to be able to remain active, have less pain and also be able to stay in their own homes for as long as possible...

The pain passes ~ only the beauty remains...

Hello to all of you! My name is Patti (after Patti Page, doesn't that date me). I'm 72, a retired state worker, and live in Lacey, Washington, I've never retired from sharing my passions for teaching and needle crafting. I teach knitting, crochet, tatting, spinning (yarn), weaving, and most recently Balance for Older Adults.

I joined this team a few months ago and have been "deciding" to be part of it ever since. So, now I've decided to introduce myself and join "in Spirit." Everything OlderOwl says is inspiring, and I have found these principles key to my happiness and feeling of self-worth. Also, I observe myself giving my heart to others more and more, relying on the Spirit of the Universe to give me the needed support and ideas.

Right now, I'm drawing back from my involvement with Spark and moving forward with this Team and my purposeful living of this life. My decision to introduce myself has led to much verbiage about Spark, and I'll put that in a blog any of you can read is so inclined.

For now, I just want to say I'm here and willing to learn and love life with the rest of you!

Leader "Spin Me a Yarn"

Welcome to the A Wholesome, Inspiring, Healthy and Joyous Team. Please encourage your friends in Spark such as those who commented on your blogs etc. to join us on the team. We all need the encouragement to stay on course in Spark and I think this team's focus on positive thinking is a necessary tool to avoid falling into the trap of wanting it all or nothing. Our team's focus will be on always finding new and better ways to overcome the obstacles that can cause us to stray too far from the good journey that we are embarked on. If we let ourselves to mentally give the many obstacles, that we will surely face, more power over us than our faith, then we should (1) renew our minds, (2) seek encouragement from others, (3) read motivating material, and (4) [this is important] find others in similar circumstances and join in helping them fight the same problems so together we can succeed.
Again, welcome to the team
On a personal note, learn to move more and enjoy the exercise while at it. If you must move slowly, I read that those who walked a mile at a slow consistent pace burned more calories than those who covered the same distance in a shorter time.

Hello everyone!
My name is Darla and I am 52. I have a grown daughter who has a boyfriend. My daughter has a 9 year old daughter and her boyfriend has a 7 year old daughter and a 13 year old son! I also have a grown son and daughter in law that has 2 big dogs my grandogs! I just joined this group today! I like positive groups! I read a lot of books and articles on positive things. My biggest thing right now is Minimalism which is getting rid of stuff and making your life more simple. On Feb 24th I turned off my cable and DVR and have not missed it! Now I have more time to read articles and books which I love! I do have Netflix if I want to watch a movie or the TV shows that is on it. I have also been going thru my one bedroom apt a little each day to get rid of things. Each person is different with it. I have been on Spark People for years and just wanted a new group! I have 3 college degress two in Mental Health and hope I can be of encouragement to others as a member!

Taking every day as a gift from God and being so thankful for my kids and my very funny granddaughter! Each day is a new day and I am thankful for it.

Hello all.
I responded to an email to join this group. Who doesn't need a more perfect day?
I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA where it is extremely cold during the winter months. I tend to complain a lot about the weather. I hope to create many more perfect things in my life so that focusing on the weather becomes a thing of the past.
I hope that this becomes an active group where I can learn lots and mutually support other team members. I feel as if I am in a time of transition. 24 year old daughter recently moved out on her own. I am no longer a hands on mother. Last week was my final week delivering flyers
after 20+ years. I am no longer "the flyer lady". I am re-examining the question of Who Am I?
I look forward to exploring this team further and getting to know you all better.

Welcome Lin1263 and Oxygen9 to Create Your Perfect Days. Each day is a chance to reflect on your progress, learn more about your strengths. You both will learn here to focus on what matters, and make small changes one day at a time. You will learn to resist the temptation for early gratification, to overcome obstacles and take the actions that are needed to get more done in less time. Post often on this team and get the needed support and accountability as a result

Hi! Thank you for inviting me to join this Team, I find it truly inspiring. Who doesn't want to crate their perfect days? I am always up for some self-improvement. I lost 35 pounds with SP, but that was a few years ago and I have regained since then. My problem is stress eating, but I am improving and trying to solve that puzzle. Also, I would like to start waking up earlier so I can really get the most of my days.
I wish everyone an amazing holiday season! emoticon

Hi, I got a email inviting me to join this team,it seems very interesting. I live in the Lower mainland of B.C. Canada and we tend to get rain and not much snow in the winter. I have lost about 45 pounds this year and want to lose 10 more pounds.

I exercise about 10 hours a week,some at a gym and some walking. My birthday is next month,so at one restaurant I get a free breakfast on my birthday, another free dinner on my birthday,clubhouse I belong to gives me free lunch on my birthday month,another hamburger restaurant gives a choice of 20 hamburgers one day in your birthday month, plus cake from various places for my birthday. This year i started losing weight in February,next year I will do the same when all holidays are over to reach my goal weight.I am 53 years old.

I have pleurisy, 2 types of anemia, macrocytic anemia, Iron deficiency anemia, from blood transfusions with wrong antibodies, causes blood to replace daily instead of 100 days, chronic pneumonia, pleurisy, chronic kidney disease, a partially collapsed lung, low blood pressure & blood clots in both lungs for 3 years. Now formed scar tissue.I am 56 years old. I had cervical cancer 6 years ago, no signs last 4 years as well. I have new blood clots now,2019.I am on P.S.T. time zone.

Hi all:
I got an email inviting me to join this Sparkpeople group and after reading about it, I'm very interested. This past Sept/Oct I completed a 6 week online University course called "A Life of Happiness and Fulfillment". It had some very good tips and research, but as I've done so often in the past, I fail to continue to carry out all the good stuff I've learned that would make my life
happier and healthier. It sounds like the focus of this group would help me to continue to focus on what I need to do. I've been a member of Sparkpeople for many years now and have managed to take off about 40+ lbs - but I've been back to indulging and yo-yo dieting again. I'm Canadian but am presently a Winter Texan (I like that term rather than "snowbird", as it makes us feel more like part of the community down here). Anyway tomorrow I had pledged to rejoin a TOPS group about 5 mins away from where I live so hopefully between that group and this one I can get back on track and stay there - I still have about 50 lbs to go to be at my optimal weight. I must go online and get a copy of the book you're using for the pillars! Anyway that's enuf chat for now. Have a great day tomorrow y'all, eh?! That's how Winter Texan Canadians sound! :)

Hi everyone... I just joined this team today.

I have been a Sparkpeople member for over a year, and during this time I've been working on overcoming learned emotional eating habits. I have learned the tools to stop and think before I eat rather than deal with the emotion or sabotaging thought.

I am at the point today where I need to be learning to build self confidence and change my self sabotaging thoughts to positive thoughts...

Wishing everyone a great day!

I am from Washington, DC, one of 9 children. Both my mom and dad worked for the Federal government, so when I started working for the US Patent and Trademark Office a year after High School, I had to move to a boarding house near Dupont Circle since only 2 members of the same household can work concurrently for the Federal Government. I study nights and took advantage of on the job training and gradually work up to the position of a GS 14 Primary Patent Examiner and retired after working for 37 years in the Patent Office. I am interested in helping others build Healthy Relationships.

Mommy_RX, You may or may not find this group to your liking, but I intended it to be of help to Spark members like you. I believe you stay where you are because you can't think of a way out that would not be adverse to your children, or because your co-dependent. This group hasn't had enough time to mature. The focus of the team will depend upon the team members.
My prayers go out for you.

Hi I prefer to go by Mommy_Rx. I have had to be strong my whole life. I am continuously faced with challenges that seem determined to break me. Yet I am still here. I get defeated, I get knocked down. But I do not give up. I must admit I am feeling pretty battered and worn these days. But still I live to fight another battle. Always putting out fires and dealing with chaos.

I dream of a day where I will have the strength to walk away from the front-line and take some time to relax, create, and who knows maybe even have a little fun. Those that love me think I am crazy to continue to sit amidst the chaos. They enjoy each other's company, go out to eat, go dancing, have parties. And I deal with Armageddon everyday. And although I agree, I don't know how to live any other way.

I must admit I don't know what this team is about. I saw the words self-esteem and self-action and thought yes that is what I need!

Anyway, I know your are struggling but you seem to have a much better outlook on life than your name implies. You might also set a positive affirmation, one that you repeat each day such as the one by ForZachAndMatt.

Hello, I'm broken as the name implies, I was getting fixed but then life happened and here I am with new breaks. I've always been an introvert, I've suffered from depression most my life (managed through diet and exercise) and between these two it has left me with no confidence. I have a mild social anxiety, which I'm sure is an effect of the other 2. Although I have done a lot, and accomplished a lot I still cant hold my head up look a person in the eye and talk clear and strong. Makes job interviews pretty tough I tell you. Anyway thats me in a nut shell

Teresa, I know it can be stressful to think back to that incident. You can do the "Tapping Solution" to release the hurtful feelings. See www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6nd1
vb
jqG8VYSroZMCYFTMlnwNLoSdj7
. It should help. Also, continue with the daily affirmations and you can repeat the affirmation while doing the tapping after having release the hurtful feelings in the first part of tapping.

Hi my name is Teresa. I am a 55 year old mother of three sons, and grand mother of nine.
I live in British Columbia, Canada. I work in the Senior's Mental Health outreach program. People believe I am this confident out going person, but that is just the public face I put on. I was "touched wrong" by one of my uncles at a very young age. He did not go beyond touching, but it still has had an negative impact on my life and deep down I think I am broken and have not dealt with it. I guess I need to forgive. Any how it has effected my self esteem, and what is worse is sometimes I beat myself up as my training should have helped me through this.

Hello team. I am Angela. I started with self esteem issues probably in middle school from being teased and called names and still hurts to think about. I never thought that anyone could ever love a girl/women that looked like me (the heavy girl). I am getting better with the help of a wonderful BF that loves me for me and encourages me to be me and do things for me not anyone else.

The first think I am working on is getting my mind set away from me being called the fat girl in my head. I am a grown woman and I really shouldn't care what others think of me, as long as I am happy.
Thanks for listening.
Angela

I am here because I am a victim of low self esteem - and I am guilty of having blamed my parents in the past and wanting to heal the inner child - but I have not been good about taking the reins in my hands and build my self esteem myself so I think this will be a great help in that regard. Also, I want my sons to grow up with good self esteem and sense of community and empathy - especially our younger one who has many anxiety issues and seems to have been born with low self esteem - it is very difficult to see that in your children.

Hello everyone, I just joined the team. Reading OLDEROWL'S blog got me to join without any pressure (HaHa). This team attacked me like a magnet...it just pulled me right in. My daughter has a self-esteem problem because she spent her first two years in an orphanage before we were able to get permission from China to adopt her. Now there are many problems which all are centered on self-esteem. Also, I could use some help too. So here I am.

Hi, I'm Christina, I'm 49 years old, I live in the Netherlands.
I recently read the book 'Self-compassion' by Kristin Neff and found it very inspiring. I hope this team will also be inspiring!

Welcome to the team whether your just visiting or just joined. See www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes
sa
geboard_thread.asp?board=0x64349x619R>32727x1xfirst
, for Guiding Principles to build and improve your 'perfect' day. Please make this a team that you are willing to support by giving it your perspective either by posting a new topic, reply or sending me a Spark Mail if your just a visitor. I'm only a lay man and have no professional training but feel that by expressing my viewpoint on matters of importance, I can add to your knowledge and understanding. No one is perfect but everyone has something that they can contribute if they had some experience in the subject. I welcome all viewpoints if they are made in a respectful manner and are appropriate, i.e. are on topic and meet Spark Guidelines.
In all my 70 years I have had many encounters with others, marked by a failed marriage that was mainly due to the two of us blindly becoming engaged after only knowing each other for a period of less than a month and my case of a chemical mental illness that went un-diagnosed for the first 17 years of the marriage until my wife locked me out of the home to protect her and her daughters from a man that she couldn't understand. I learned from that experience, saw a doctor who prescribed risperidone to treat the mental illness, got counseling and gained a better sense of purpose and well being
My wife and I now enjoy a happy marriage based on trust and respect for each other and our daughters are each fully grown and have happy well adjusted marriages of their own. We have 4 daughters, 9 grandchildren and one great grandson. We learned to live each day with passion for life, and happily expect our marriage to last until death parts us.
If you would like to know more about having a perfect day then you have come to the right place. We need all reasonable perspectives on living with the intent of making each of your days more perfect and meaningful so feel free to share your insights. Our team believes in living by personal guidelines, some more important than others, the violation of which is marked either by their natural (God given) consequences or by man made consequences. Our team also believes that these guidelines should be based upon three factors: 1) Scripture, e.g. the bible; 2) reason, e.g. slavery is inhumane; 3) experience, e.g. a sense of purpose gained from continually striving to do better and recognizing a need for society which you can best fulfill (see www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes
