I deserve a treat because I see other eat their treats and I do not want to deprive myself to the extent where I over indulge. I deserve a treat because I exercise 6 days a week to maintain my goal weight. I think I have earned one.

I deserve a treat because of the very stressful year and a half I have had. In September of 2008 my husband kicked me out and my son and I moved into an apartment that I have been taking care of myself. I pay all the bills, work full time and take care of my child. Granted I have not lost the weight that I wanted to but I have not gained a large amount either. I did gain around 5 pounds but I don't think that is too bad. I am now getting used to everything and my divorce is almost final so it is time to concentrate on my weight loss and thank goodness my son likes to do exercise so we can do it together which is a great help. He is five and has large amounts of energy.

I deserve a treat because: In 2002 the plant where my husband worked 23 years, and I had worked 18 years closed. Six months later his doctor told him to file for disability. He had a massive heart attack in 2001, (at 40 years of age) and has 5 stints. He is also Diabetic and has High Blood Pressure. It took 2 years to get disability approved. During this time I worked a full time job and went to school full time earning an Associates Degree so I could find work.

Since graduation (with Honors GPA 3.86)in 2004
(20-years after high school), I have been working full time in an office while continuing to work part time at the other job where I worked while going to school. I also work a third job in the summer helping to clean beach houses every Saturday.

I have NOT had a vacation since November 2001. I found Spark People in 2006 and have been a member ever since. I have learned so much about the importance of taking care of myself. The only time I have is first thing in the morning. I get up about 1 1/2 to 2 hours befor work so I can workout. I have numerous videos of Taebo, yoga, P90, the Firm,etc. I have lost 50 pounds and maintained the loss for over 3 years. I have not reached my goal yet, But with Spark I WILL! emoticon emoticon

1-2-2019 I am now 52 years of age and am trying once again to take better care of myself. I hope to be more active in my lifestyle and on Spark People. This is a GREAT learning and tracking site to help people live healthier lives.

I deserve a treat because I refuse to give up on myself. Despite setbacks, I am working to change my eating style. No more diets for me!

I have been with Sparkpeople since January 10, 2010 and lost 16 pounnds so far. The consistency, positive attitude, and healthier lifestyle overall have made me a more positive person.

Since I choose to EAT right and DRINK right, I suppose you could say I LIVE right!

I can relate. I deserve a treat because I worked 90 hours last week and still found time to exercise. Although it wasn't as much as I would have liked to I made as much time as possible. I managed to walk 3 days (on my lunch break) because that was the only available time I had.

I deserve a treat because I need to take the time out of my busy schedule (I work 40 hours/week at one job and am getting a business off the ground) for myself. I need to treat myself, even if it's no more than just a little quiet time to unwind, or a coffee, I deserve that little treat.

I deserve a treat because even though I'm obese, my kids aren't....
I've always showed them how important fruits and vegetables are, and they practice that...THEY have good eating habits...

B/C I have completely revamped my family's way of eating and living. We use to eat fattening foods and snacks- and rarely did ANYTHING physical. Now we all eat healthy food and walk together- My oldest son,13, is even jogging now. We have all lost weight, partly thanks to Spark people. My husband has lost around 30 lbs - I have lost around 32 lbs. I dont weigh my sons- we go by sizes and my oldest has gone down 3 sizes. I feel a Treat would be great and keep me motivated.

I want to be the kind of woman
that when my feet
hit the floor each morning
the devil says
"Oh Crud! She's up!"

I deserve a treat becuase I work very hard to provide for my family and I don't get much me time.

I work full time, I'm the only one that works, dh stays at home with the little ones. I come home, clean up, take care of the kids, cook, laundry and try to get to the gym 4x a week or so. I walk during my lunch hour, I exercise in my office, I will sacrifice what I need for the needs of my family. I put them first most of the time and feel guilty sometimes if I take something for myself.

I deserve a treat becuase I don't ever treat myself. I have decided that when I get back to prepregnancy weight that I will buy myself a massage. It would help me relax, have some me time and it would be so much fun. I have 20 lbs to get back to prepregnancy weight and then I can start towards my original goal weight.
