Let the sun shine in
Face it with a grin
Smilers never lose
And frowners never win
Open up your heart and let the sun shine in

Hey everyone! I am so thrilled to have found this site. I've lost around 40 pounds since joining, but still have about 25 more to go. I look forward being a support for others as people have been for me.

After my first week on SP I discovered how supportive the teams are, especially those "Done" girls! Can it get any better than this, weight loss, meeting new people, support?

Speaking of support we must be surrounded by people who want to help us meet our goals. I really like this quote by Descartes "An optimist may see a light where there is none, but why must the pessimist always run to blow it out?" Let's keep the pessimists out of our circle!!! For myself I am an optimist - it does not seem to be much use being anything else.”

Newbies - get vested in this site ASAP. Find some supportive teams, reach out, make friends, and by all means SET A GOAL! There's not telling what you can do when you get inspired by them. There's no telling what you can do when you believe in them. There's no telling what will happen when you act upon them.

I've seen many people start with great energy and after a few days they never come back... Don't let that be you. This site can be an amazing component in your weight loss journey IF you use it. Don't give up until you get what you came for!

*** Current Challenge - 50 pounds in 5 months, start date 8-1-08
*** Weekly team leader September 1st-7th

Things I'm DONE with -
* Being concerned about how I look in clothes
* Having to deal with health issues due to my weight
* Not being able to shop till I drop because I'm out of breath
* Feeling ashamed to see family and old friends

Great Quotes:

I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me!
Philippians 4:13

"I get by with a little help from my friends."
John Lennon

You have to stay in shape. My grandmother, she started walking five miles a day when she was 60. She's 97 today and we don't know where the hell she is.
Ellen Degeneres

You must begin to think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be.
David Viscott

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't, I give myself reasons why I can.

Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, 'Where have I gone wrong?' Then a voice says to me, 'This is going to take more than one night.'
Charles Schulz

The best way to cheer yourself is to cheer somebody else up.
Mark Twain

If you don't like who you are and where you are, don't worry about it because you're not stuck either with who you are or where you are. You can grow. You can change. You can be more than you are. Zig Ziglar

Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.
Dr. Seuss

When you have a sense of your own identity and a vision of where you want to go in your life, you then have the basis for reaching out to the world and going after your dreams for a better life.
Stedman Graham

First we form habits, then they form us. Conquer your bad habits or they will conquer you. Rob Gilbert

Those are my principals, if you don't like them… I have others.

    As an Aquarian, you are Fixed Air, like a tornado you have GREAT power, but you need to keep direction and not jump from one thing to another. You look to the future and want to have freedom and independence. You get upset with someone and say "so long" and go down the street and make a new best friend. This comes from when you were a child, you were isolated from other children in some way, and spent most of your time with adults. You had a fast mind and high intelligence and they helped you to mature quickly, but you still long to "act" and be a child. Drama, theatre, dance, yoga, Pilates, and even team sports like Volleyball can all give you lots of enjoyment.
    Aquarius can be a Fat sign, IF you don't make a plan, and keep a record of what you are doing. You can go from change to change and not be aware of what you really want. You don't plan and then you eat Junk food, since you are in a rush, etc. BUT, you really DO want to be in control and you DO care about your body and your health. In fact, like DENISE AUSTIN and OPRAH, you want to TEACH others about health and how they should live life. Denise is 53 next month, and the mother of 2 girls, 5'4" and 112# but her real love was gymnastics. She was too tall to be the best, but used her love of exercise to get a college degree and then teach others. Her love of CHANGE, allowed her to make dozens of videos and have her own TV shows.
    The Sun resides in this eleventh sign of the zodiac from 21 January until 19 February every year. The symbol of Aquarius is the Water Bearer.

    In Aquarius the Sun is eccentric and original. You're apt to be a superb thinker, and your ideas are frequently advanced, no matter what field of profession you select. Often, your unique approaches to problem solving are viewed as too radical and unworkable, but you prefer to think of them as advanced and progressive instead. Unconventional and outspoken, you see your role as the rebel and the person who rejects worn out traditions and old ways of operating. You like to be with those ushering in the new order and fostering advanced thinking.

    Paradoxically, you're a good team player, but one who must have personal freedom. You don't like to feel fenced in. While you're headstrong and inflexible in your ways, you can work very effectively within a large group. You have complete respect for the sound ideas put forward by others. You are aloof and detached, and your concerns are directed toward society rather than to the problems of any one person. You are somewhat impersonal most of the time. You're more emotionally involved with your work than you are with people. You can be highly critical and demanding in a position of authority. Nonetheless, you are a strong leader and organizer. You have a deep understanding of human nature, but often you lack sensitivity to the emotional content of many situations.

    You thrive on change and managing the unexpected. Always ahead of your time, you are viewed by everyone as being different and unusual, labels you don't mind accepting. You pride yourself on your ability to find a better way of doing the job. Sometimes you lack follow through, and you always dislike routine. You like to take chances and keep everything stirred up. Occasionally, you enjoy antagonizing people in positions of authority, and stimulating a good argument now and then. You don't mind that you are seen as a bit unusual, in fact, you may encourage this image.

    Equality, freedom and fairness are all important issues for you. You strongly subscribe to the doctrine that all people are created equal and should have the same rights and opportunities. In this regard, you are likely to be classified as a progressive and often associated with humanitarian issues and causes. Though you are very involved with such matters, your approach is always somewhat in the abstract, with ideological concepts, the sort that don't usually stem from true emotions. Your approach is often very impersonal and detached.

    Friendly and sociable, you may have a wide circle of acquaintances. Friends are very important to you. Intellectually oriented, you are happiest with friends that share common ideas and interests. Strangely, you find it more difficult to cultivate a truly satisfying intimate relationship. This aloofness exists because feelings are rarely expressed outwardly, and you usually seem distant. You resist anything or anyone threatening your independence.
