Well here's a good one....I didn't even look to see what weight loss progress this team mate has made but the success and progress is that she is now a runner and has beaten the blood pressure in the process!! I hope you'll take a moment to say YAY!

Well, you know that coming back is a success in itself! a lessor person might have thrown in the towel...you didn't, and you also gained a very valuable insight to what happens when we "take a break" better I guess to slack off a bit but not take off entirely I guess. Look, you're back at it and you will make progress now so what's done is done. Good luck or maybe I should say more power to ya!

Today I think I should give an encouraging pat on the back to DEEISINSPIRED....looking at her page, I see that she has lost weight and I also see that she has learned a lot about herself and that has come from the kind of thing we all experience at some time or other...she's had some difficult times and perhaps had some bad choice weeks. Here's the thing about this, when we have that happen, it is a success when we can evaluate the situation, learn from it and then move on and set a plan....Well, Dee (Donna), has done this...she's set a very specific goal for this month and has really noted her triggers. Dee, you have really had a big move forward with what you may have looked at as a step back....You ARE successful...and You WILL be even more successful as time goes on!

Join me in giving Dee a high five!

You're welcome but remember whatever successes you have are yours...we are proud of you but you did it so be sure to be proud of yourself...we grow up having people tell us not to toot our own horns but honestly....we need to be our own cheerleader! Anyway, I think we need to all feel good about whatever successes we make...some are not as close to their goal weight but they've had success changing some of their habits or perhaps become stronger or whatever...and really that is huge!

I missed stopping by yesterday...it's spring here in WI and I have been trying to get as much of it as I can! LOL
Today, I read a success blog from one of our members that I think shows a different side of success....that is that life can change the timeline a bit but it doesn't have to interfere with our goals. Check out this blog...........http://www.sparkpeople.com/

I hope you all will join me in sending congrats out to SETTLERON when I looked at his page today, I found that he has lost over 100lbs! I think you'll see that this success has given him the opportunity to do some things that he had hoped for and I feel confident that one day soon he'll be flying overhead (his reward for losing all his intended weight is to learn to fly)!! Congrats! and thanks for showing us it can be done!!

Today, I want to point out a different kind of success....the kind many of us have probably experienced....

MARISABELLES posted on the 6 month thread that life got in the way for a bit and her focus was lost a bit making her goal for March a miss.......the reason I am pointing this out as a success?! It's because she has noted this as happening and not letting it color the whole journey for her. She's refocused and that is a kind of success...

The journey to weight loss and self improvement is not a straight line....we will always have some life getting in the way or slowing us down....the important thing is to take the detour and then get right back on the path!!

Congrats MARISABELLES !!! Let's cheer her on and remind her that we're all i this together!

Thank you DDHeart for the pat on the back and posting my comments. I am so thrilled to be able to donate the food to the pantry in conjunction with my weight loss. I know not all people can do it, as many can't afford it. I manage by picking up whatever I lose each week. That way it doesn't seem to be so much, but stacking those boxes and cans up in the pantry is a great reminder of how I'm doing. Once again, thanks for the idea and thank you for acknowledging what I've been doing. I've also enjoyed the links and references you've made to other members.

REDREAPER has lost a size and even better than that has found a gym that she feels comfortable using! Sounds like the search for a comfortable fit gym took some trial and error but she kept it up and we know she can keep the scale and size moving down in the right direction.

Give a shout out to our successful team mate!

Yesterday I posted a link to a blog I liked since it showed the success of one of our team mates. Today, I would like to share a sparkmail I received from our team mate MUEHLBBO, I hope she doesn't mind but I am so impressed by what she has done.

Remember our pounds to pantries challenge?

"I just wanted to let you know that I dropped off another 30 lbs. of food to our local food pantry. I had dropped off 40 at Thanksgiving, and now another 30. That's 2 lbs. more than my total weight loss, but that's just the way it worked out.

I'm not telling you this as a matter of any kind of brag. I just wanted to let you know what a great idea I thought this was and how it's continued to motivate me. When I dropped the first batch off, I got into a converstation with the lady working there. I told her what I was doing and about Sparkpeople. She was interested for her mother (she, herself definitely didn't need help). When i walked in today she remembered me and knew what my donation meant. She also asked the name of SP again, as she had forgotten what it was and her mother was interested. She wrote it down and is going to give it to her.

Thanks again for the idea. I'm still working on the weight and I will continue to work on the donation. Have a great day. "

Obviously, the nearly 70 lb wt loss is a wonderful success but what I am so touched about is the dedication to make her efforts to lose translate to gain for others.

I hope you'll all stop by her page to congratulate and thank her.
