Hey! I'm Amy and been sparking since 2007. I love SparkPeople and I met some really great inspiring friends here.

How that saying goes....same ole story different day?

Well, I've lost thousands of pounds. It is just a shame its the same damn 10 to 20 pounds over and over again. Oh well here goes again.......

Favorite quotes:

If I quit now, I will soon be back to where I started
and when I started, I was desperately wishing to be where I am now.
Therefore I will never give up. It is not an option.

The hardest thing is to start, but once you start, you won't want to stop.

You must tell yourself, "No matter how hard it is, or how hard it gets, I'm going to make it."
~ Les Brown

The body achieves what the mind BELIEVES.

The best 6 doctors anywhere and no one can deny it are:
Sunshine, Water, Rest, Air, Exercise and Diet.
~ Wayne Fields

Progress is progress, whether it's 1 pound or 100 pounds, it's something to be proud of.

A healthy attitude is contagious but don't wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier.
~ Tom Stoppard

    I'd like to share some words of wisdom about persistence from Napoleon Hill.

    4 Steps that lead to habit of persistence:

    A definite purpose backed by a burning desire for its fulfillment.
    A definite plan, expressed in continuous action.
    A mind closed tightly against all negative and discouraging influences, including negative suggestions of relatives, friends and acquaintances.
    A friendly alliance with one or more person who will encourage you to follow through with both plan and purpose.

    Whatever your goals are: don't give up on them! Persistence leads to success!

    The search for happiness is not about looking at life through rose-colored glasses... it is the purging of mental toxins, such as hatred and obsession, that literally poison the mind.
