This is Day 35 of my new journey with Spark. I lost 60 lbs. in 2007 Sparking daily. I spent a lot of time on Spark a couple hours a day. I found great friends and support. I've travelled to meet a few in Canada and the US.
I am on 4 teams now. 3 I have been on for years including one I am co-leader not the best over the years. Chris has kept it going with the help of a few other members that have joined in over the years. That is Evening Eating Sabotage Myself Frustration Help!
We are a small team but very supportive.
The Knees is another team I've been on for years. Great Leader L*I*T*A. She keeps the team going with daily fitness challenge.
Angels Amongst Us our leader is KRYS she is also a great inspiration and keeps the team going with various items.
I just joined Calling all Canadians so impressed to see so many Canadians on here. I've only been on this team a couple of days so I will be checking it out daily.
I have lost 13lbs. this year so far 10 since joining Spark on the 16th of January. I have tracked every meal and morsel, even the bad choices. I've been close to or within my limits every day. I have a hard time hitting the calories and carbs. everything else I am within the lower end every day. I am trying to get exercise to be a daily thing it's a lot harder for me. I got a band with handles I'm going to order an exercise ball. Just because I have them doesn't mean much. It's hard to do them if I don't do them early in the day it won't get done. My Yorkie barks every time I make a movement so that is a hindrance I am dealing with right now.
I found a 20 minute routine with the band I tried once and I really liked it so it was supposed to be my daily exercise.
I will follow through this time. I am also journalling daily and it is something like my Sparking in the past a couple days and then I forget all about it. Day 35 and counting I will update regularly now I am devoted to Sparking again. Teri

This is something worth reading over and over again. So I will put it here and I can see it whenever.

A Birth Certificate shows that we were born
A Death Certificate shows that we died
Pictures show that we lived!
Have a seat . . . Relax . . .
And read this slowly.

I Believe...
That just because two people argue,
It doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue,
It doesn't mean they do love each other..

I Believe....
That we don't have to change friends if
We understand that friends change.

I Believe...
That no matter how good a friend is,
They're going to hurt you every once in a while
And you must forgive them for that.

I Believe...
That true friendship continues to grow,
Even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love..

I Believe...
That you can do something in an instant
That will give you heartache for life.

I Believe...
That it's taking me a long time
To become the person I want to be.

I Believe...
That you should always leave loved ones with
Loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I Believe...
That you can keep going long after you think you can't.

I Believe...
That we are responsible for what
We do, no matter how we feel.

I Believe...
That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I Believe...
That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to
be done, regardless of the consequences.

I Believe...
That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I Believe...
That my best friend and I, can do anything, or nothing and have the
best time.

I Believe...
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you When you're down,
will be the ones to help you get back up.

I Believe...
That sometimes when I'm angry
I have the right to be angry,
But that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I Believe.
That maturity has more to do with
What types of experiences you've had
And what you've learned from them
And less to do with
How many birthdays you've celebrated.

I Believe....
That it isn't always enough,
To be forgiven by others.
Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I Believe...
That no matter how bad your heart is broken
The world doesn't stop for your grief.

I Believe...
That our background and circumstances
May have influenced who we are,
But, we are responsible for who we become.

I Believe......
That you shouldn't be so eager to find
Out a secret. It could change your life Forever.

I Believe...
Two people can look at the exact same
Thing and see something totally different.

I Believe...
That your life can be changed in a matter of
Hours by people who don't even know you.

I Believe....
That even when you think you have no more to give,
When a friend cries out to you - you will find the strength to help.

I Believe...
That credentials on the wall
Do not make you a decent human being.

I Believe...
That the people you care about most in life
Are taken from you too soon.

I Believe...
That you should send this to
All of the people that you believe in, I just did.

'The happiest of people don't necessarily
Have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything.
