JULY 1st is Canada Day---coming up soon------Our celebrations are like July 4th celebrations in the U.S.!----fireworks----parades-
---We have become proud Canadians!
To-day I read a great blog from Brad who has lost over 100 pounds. He was telling us to be the best---don't accept less!---Then I read a blog by OnekidsMom's , about her own opinion on life---She has lost over 100 pounds also----Both are very successful Sparkly People.
So, I strive to be a "loser""----not just a loser either--but, a healthy loser---and it makes me wonder why I reach for something ""sparkly"" to drink when I come in from the garden, hot and sweaty--????--why not cold water with lemon???-
Trying to be successful-----
Deep thoughts---------

    Thanks for the mention! :) Happy Canada day! We should all strive to be "healthy losers"! Here is to another day, another day closer to the person we want to be!

    What a great blog! I think you're onto something that I had to figure out too. There are temptations around, but the question that begs to be asked is "Is it really worth it?" I feel soooooo much better eating healthier foods that I would not dream of turning around on that.

    HUGS and smiles. and Happy Canada Day to you on the 1st!

    I read a blog this morning here on SP about someone who lost over 100 lbs ina year. It used to be that I would get depressed reading those, because here I am 2yrs in and I've only managed 42 pounds. Not anymore! I am better than I was then, and just getting stronger!

    Happy Canada Day soon....I LOVE my Canadian friends!

    Lynda, I was ADDICTED to Diet Pepsi...you would not believe how much I drank...thinking I would lose weight. I gave it up over 4 years ago and don't drink anything but water...I am ADDICTED to that and I am so GLAD I did!

    I prefer the sparkly drinks too and preferably sugar-free - despite claims that artificial sweeteners make me eat more, that isn't the case with me.

    emoticon Happy Canada day... and btw, one of the best things I ever did was give up those bubbly drinks. Over three years now. Do they still tempt me sometimes? Yes, but... not enough to pick one up.

    Spark on!
