Cool quote Ola.

Blessed are those who bring out the BEAUTY in others!!

You are blessed if you understand that VERY LITTLE is needed to make life happy.

LOVE is a blessing that comes from the HEART.

ENCOURAGEMENT is a blessing of HOPE.

Being wth those you LOVE is a BLESSING!!

Blessings come from sharing HAPPINESS.

Live well, laugh often, and bless each day.

Thanks team! I am feeling better. Sometimes it gets so frustrating fighting for something i think everyone should agree on like the truth... but we must fight the GOOD fight with weapons of love. :)

Rock on everyone! I got my cousin Aja in hawaii to sign up so maybe let's head over to her page and get her SPARKED! ASIA MONIIZ is her username.

Aloha my Ohana!

Greg and Ola - I feel very moved by what you went through. It's one of those bittersweet twists in life...you take a stand for something good (and in Greg's case something life changing) but it costs something that you loved.

Sorry for the loss of those friends.

But I know that you have been and will continue to be blessed for your choices. -Deirdre

Hello Ola
Let me try to help by telling you a story. I had a friend who was more like a brother to me than my real brother. We had been through thick and thin together. I mean i almost took a bullet for this guy! That's all close we were. His mom was like my mom and when my mom died she adopted me as her son. We had been through hell and back with each other
We used to live the fast life, doing stuff we should not have been doing. But one day I turned my life around and decided I didn't want to life like that anymore, but I still was friends with my Bro. I told him I don't do these things anymore but that does not mean I am not there for you! I would still go to the mat for you! I just don't hang the way we used to hang.
Well he thought I was just going through a phase and I would go back to my old ways. But when I didn't he slowly stopped coming by to see me. he would not return my calls and even told his wife and kids to tell me he was not home! One day I really needed him to be by my side and I finally got to speak to him and he promised he would be there for me. Well when the time came, he was not there. And I had not seen him for months and when people we knew who saw him, they told me he was telling terrible lies about me! I was so hurt and I tried to reach out to him, but he would not speak to me. I have never been betrayed as I was with my best bro. But you know what? I finally got over it. well not really,because I still miss him from time to time, but you have to move on after a while, you know. We can be there for our friends but we can't make our friends be there for us. And hey, you have a team full of friends who are there for you when you need us! Just look how we have jumped right on this problem with you! I have learned that just because people are in your face does not mean they got your back! Enjoy the friends you have and the ones you are going to make!

Well I know I ranted on, but I just feel strongly about things like friendship.
Hope it helped
Your FRIEND

There is a saying that I have been taught in AA....clean your own side of the street. Ola, you did more than that, my friend.

I hope that she comes to her senses soon and realizes that she has a terrific friend in you. You did all everything in your power to remedy the situation.

Hugs, Wendy

Yes it does sound like you tried to work things through.. hopefully in time things will get better. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and hopefully your friend will realize that your friendship is worth working things through.

I truly hope it all works out Ola!!

Thanks Wendy & Chris! It's been a month since she ditched us... it was memorial day weekend. We did go for coffee and that's when we agreed to work through it... then she came over and thats when she got annoyed at my hubby... and I've called & txted her a few times about a week apart both times & I am still being ignored... at least with you saying that I have realized I've done all i can to remedy this.
Thank you!

Hey,
I would let a few days go by and then try and talk to her again. Try to call and see if she would like to go out for coffee or something. Or maybe for a walk.

Then if she dismisses you, she really is not that good a friend afterall.

Thank goodness for your hubby working out with you.

I feel for your situation.

Hugs, Wendy.

Hey guys...
I think I am the one who needs help right now... I hate to ask but I am super depressed. My friend who was supposed to be my best friend did something shady in front of me... let's just say something that a friend who is dating your brother SHOULDN'T do... in my and my hubby's presence. I was upset, but called her to talk about it and thought we were gonna move past it... but now she's ignoring me saying that my hubby makes her feel uncomfortable because he doesn't want to "hang out" with her anymore and won't talk to her when she came over once to workout with me... I feel like I have tried really hard to salvage this friendship, but she just dissed it. And to make matters worse, my brother is taking her side! I'm so hurt... I'm glad my hubby Al is still working out with me, but I'm just really sad about it... any encouraging words or advice would help... mahalo.

Aloha O'hana!

Thanks for the words of support and encouragement.

My Dr took me off medication (Wellbutrin) for depression and it SURE was NOT the right thing to do. There were days it was nearly impossible to get out of bed let alone exercise along with plenty of self-loathing and all around yuck.

Back on the meds for 11 days now and things are looking up! Wait 'till you see what a week of hard work does to my ticker...

Many, many mahalo's!

Hey Countess
Anyone who can put up such yummy and healthy recipes on the posts is entitled to have a bad day or two. You have come so far that a small setback is nothing to worry about.

Sit back, relax and do something you enjoy, Like D said. And back yourself up and start over again, Like Team Leader said. Grab one of those delish recipes and have a great weekend!

Hey Carol...

We ALL have those times when we fall short, but you know what.. U just have to step back and take a look at what you've accomplished thus far... and figure out of you want to go back there and eventually have to start ALLL over, or continue down the path to healthy living.

And remember, it's not that you CAN'T eat some goodies every now and then... just be aware of what and how much you're eating.

Last but not least, if you do make a bad food choice.. dust yourself off and move on.

WE CAN DO THIS!! Chris

O.K. Take a deep breath. Your body is telling you something. You are probably tired, anxious, or actually hungry...or all three.

Do something really nice for yourself that doesn't involve eating...like rest, take a candlelit bath, listen to music on headphones, talk to a old friend...you know what to do.

Then eat a beautiful healthy meal. Make something you love and eat it slowly...really savor each bite. That usually works for me when the bad choices start to take over.

You just need to recharge your healthy batteries.

Well, look who's been missing for the last 10 days. Even went 2 days in a row with out turning on the lap top. Bad, bad, bad...and I know the attitude and motivation has not been there.

Good thing is that I finally have a walking/hiking/snorkeling/swimming partner! We've been out 3 days in a row. I pushed her the 2nd day & she pushed me the 3rd...talk about accountability! we took today off from the hills of Kauai since we were both a little sore. Great to have someone to go do with and xtra special that it's my dear friend of 25 years who is finally walking the walk and not just talking about it.

OK, so just don't bust my chops (to much) for gaining!! I gave up for a bit and it felt horrible.

I love this team too! And like Joanna, this is the only team I check in with. It's the first thing I do every morning.

I cannot express how much the support, encouragement, and motivation means to me.

I keep saying that this team is made up of the smartest, most caring, most motivating, and funniest people ever.

Thanks to you all!

This was a great post! Thanks Greg for reading our minds (the people who have become discouraged) and coming to the rescue. I guess it's okay to have those periods where we feel down in the dumps. This team is the only team I've stuck with. Mostly because of the fun and support I find here. Checking in with Win @ Losing doesn't seem like a chore. I actually look foward to seeing how my teammates are doing, who's posting, who's been missing for a while, who's doing well, and who's needs some encouragement. I love, love, love this team!!

I agree wholeheartedly...

This team has done wonders for me. I've wanted to just give up and say the hell with this I'm tired.. may times, but you all step in with your encouraging words and enthusiasm and you pull me right back from those thoughts and lift my spirits to continue on!!

I love when I get emails in my box saying that posts have been made to the message boards!! Responding to the WIN @ LOSING boards are the very first things I do before anything else on Sparks!! ;)

Anyway.. I'd like to give a sincere "mahalo" (Thank You) to you all!! Thanks for the friendship and care that you all give me as a member of the team!!

I know I also speak for Greg, Jolie, and Leslie our Lil Mama whose been doing the prego thang, when I say thank you for all of the encouragement and support that you give us as leaders!!

Hey Greg~~Come KICK ME IN THE REAR!!!!! I moved the futon 4 times today. But that is not why I need YOU to kick me. SIS will do that one. YOURS is below.

You know with the situation with Joey and THEM, I almost gave up. But then I went out of town and got away from everything and thought for a night (even though I was supposed to be with a friend too--GOD working).

I thought about this team and all of the support here and how far I have come. Then words cmae into my head, "YOUR A QUITTER, A LOSER THAT IS ALL YOU WILL EVER BE YOUR WORTHLESS!!!!" Well, that got KICKED immediately. I got my butt refocused on Saturday night and I am going to do this. I need to. NOT only for me BUT for a certain LIL MAN in my life.

To the new people on the team in MY most honest opinion this is the BEST team on SP to belong to we are like a family and we do support each other. I know that the team has been behind me a lot lately and I thank EVERYONE from the bottom of my heart too.

Thank you for this post too Greg.

Blessed are those who bring out the BEAUTY in others!!

You are blessed if you understand that VERY LITTLE is needed to make life happy.

LOVE is a blessing that comes from the HEART.

ENCOURAGEMENT is a blessing of HOPE.

Being wth those you LOVE is a BLESSING!!

Blessings come from sharing HAPPINESS.

Live well, laugh often, and bless each day.

Just the kick in the keester that I needed. Funny how God answers my prayers. I was hoping that I would wake up a little lighter and a new joy. Just a simple snap of the Lord's finger and everything would be fixed and great. But God gave me a different provision...he gave me you and this team. A tool to help me take what He has given me and put it into motion and make it work. Thank you everyone for all the faith and love.

Thank you Greg!!

Thanks to me joining SP and meeting all of my new friends here with Win@Losing I have had the confidence and courage to openly talk to my friends and family about my weight loss goals... That is something I have never done before. The funny thing is, I never felt embarrassed talking about my goals for my weight loss. So not only do I have you all watching & supporting my progress... I also have the eyes of my peers & family watching me as well.

There have been many times I have given up and just accepted my weight. I can't anymore because I have hurt my health. I want to be healthy before I start trying to have a baby... I want to enjoy life with my family... I want to be a hot Grandma one day! LOL

Each day is a fresh start and I'm taking full advantage of each one! I have a long road ahead of me and yes, it's going to be hard and there will be times were I'm discouraged... but all I'll have to do is look to all of you who have already traveled down this road and see your progress and know that I too can do this!! For that I can't thank you all enough! You give me the strength to do what I have been ignoring for years!

Here is to a fresh start, a new day, a new life style!

Your SP buddy!! emoticon

Hello Win@Losing Family! I hope everyone is doing well today and focusing on their goals.

Just a short note to everyone. June is upon us and the Summer is here. While most of us are happy with where we are so far in our lifestyle/weight loss journey, there maybe some folks who are not. You may not have reached your goal weight or maybe you think you have not done as well as you would have liked. And now you are thinking that maybe this whole thing is worthless and that you should just give up. Well, for anyone who feels that way, I said to you "FORGET ABOUT IT!" Just kick that thought right out of your head!!! No one and I mean no one should even be entertaining those thoughts when you have such a supportive team as we have here at Win@Losing! You have the support of every member here, members who have been on the same road as you are on now. I myself have thought about giving up and letting go, but because of friends here on SP and on the W@L team, I am still here and I am reaching towards by goals. And the reason they were able to help me is because I reached out before I gave up! We are here to help any and every one who needs help, but you got to let us know that you need it! PLEASE NEVER THINK THAT YOU ARE ALONE!! We are a team, no, a family here at SP and Win@Losing and we are here to help. So anyone who is feeling lost, discouraged or who feels like giving up, Please contact someone, anyone on the team or on SP who you trust or like or think might be able to help you and let them know how you feel. We can't help if we don't know. And you have my personal promise that I will do everything in my power to try and help you get back on track!

The only thing we give up on here is our bad habits. We never give up on ourselves or our friends!
Thanks and keep on Sparking People!

May God richly bless you!
