    It looks like we started Sparkpeople about the same time; both on and off! Both teach and oh yea that other group we have in common! HAHA. Good Luck-JUST REMEMBER TO BE HEALTHY! The best thing I did was work with a nutritionist. If they haven't suggested it, just ask. I was also about 25 miles or more from support groups and doctors. Good luck and remember to laugh your way through this.

    Doing well thank you. How about you? It was good to see you back on SP. I have started over with trying to lose. Have also picked up hooping. I bought a weighted hoop online and that gives a workout. Can't do the 45 min. that you went with yesterday, but I'll work up to it. I haven't done it daily like I should. emoticon My daughter likes to compete with me using her regular hoops.

    Nice to have you back. emoticon

    Happy New Year Wish

    My Happy New Year wish for you
    Is for your best year yet,
    A year where life is peaceful,
    And what you want, you get.

    A year in which you cherish
    The past year’s memories,
    And live your life each new day,
    Full of bright expectancies.

    I wish for you a holiday
    With happiness galore;
    And when it’s done, I wish you
    Happy New Year, and many more.

    When we feel the satisfaction of accomplishment we are motivated to take on new challenges. Knowing that the attention and resources we’ve channeled into a certain goal have brought us success gives us the confidence we need to take on more responsibilities. We also have a greater understanding of our own personal strengths, and that knowledge enables us to make good choices about the plans we make, the tasks we take on, and the new goals we wish to set for ourselves. We are ushered along by the momentum of our own success, and greater success naturally manifests as a result. Use today’s accomplishments to fuel you into action by taking on more endeavors, and you will enjoy still greater achievements.
