Hi Everyone,
I just joined this team. Between chronic clinical depression and feeling discouraged about my body, having a group dedicated to thinking positively is just the ticket! Thank you for starting this team!

Hi, my name is Ciara and I have been on Spark about a month now. I enjoy blogging and think a positive bloggers group is such a fantastic idea that I had to join! I believe in keeping things upbeat and hope to meet more interesting positive people.

Hugs, Ciara

Welcome to all the new members. We are happy to have you join us for as long as you feel you need to stay. Positiveness can become your way of life just by making that choice. It's part of become a whole and healthy you. Please jump right in and join the daily posts in the Chit Chat lounge. Help us to get to know you and support you. The chit chat lounge is where we gather daily. As well, we would be happy to have to join in any of the posted daily challenges and for those that would like to join the walking challenge please feel welcome to do that too.

Everyone has bad days and difficult days, so don't be afraid to show your frustration, we only ask that if you list a negative you must also find the positive within it and post that also. Example: I am so mad at myself because I went over my calories today, the positive side to this...I am learning to recognize the triggers that cause me to be unsuccessful and I'm working on doing better tomorrow.

Every negative has a positive inside, so just keep looking.

Have fun,
Wanda

Hi! I joined this team because I need to add more positivity to my days. I am new to this team but not to Spark. I have been here for a few years but have not been very consistent so my success has not been good. I recently joined the Spark Coach Consistency and Motivation Program and find that it has really sparked me. I want that to continue.

Hello hello. New to this group. I've been Sparkin' a while. Down about 16 lbs since I started SP, this time around. It great to see a positive blogging group. I love positive attitudes, and we can all use positive words every day. Have a good night.

Color it up!

Happy Sunday!

I also found this via a sparkcoach link. So glad I did!

I live in Michigan, am 53, and have many blessings - a fabulous husband and son, a sweet, elderly guinea pig, work that I love, and great friends and family.

I started on the road to health several years ago, and while I've reached many goals, I still want to lose a lot of weight. This time around seems to be going well, and I think a lot of that is due to a more positive attitude about the journey and about life in general.

This looks like a wonderful group!

Hugs,
Jen

Hi, I'm glad I found this team through a link from SparkCoach. I just finished writing a letter of encouragement to myself and was surprised at some of the positive things I thought of to say to myself. This is a really good thing you're doing here and I look forward to giving it a try.

Hi all!

I thought this looked like an interesting team - I'm trying to use blogging as a tool for weight management and find that a positive attitude helps me so much!


This is it, my only life. A work in progress.

Hi my name is Maria. I am a member of spark coach and after watching a spark people video on positive self talk, I decided it is time to make a change. Too much of the time I have beat myself up, yet been very encouraging to others. I really want to be successful in my goals and a light bulb just came on when I realized how important this area was for my success. I think that negative self talk has been the reason I have failed reaching my goals at other times in my life. I am excited about this team!

Welcome Tava, Kathi and Carol...it's great to have new people joining us. Stay as long as you want and as long as you are receiving what you need from the team. Do drop in to the Chit Chat lounge and say hello each day as that is where we generally hang out. If you are into walking, feel free to join our walking challenge or any of the other daily challenges. If you have a suggestion please let us know what you would like to see in the way of challenges.
Everyone has negatives that happen to them in their day, we don't mind if you share them, we just ask that you also share the positive within that experience. (example...I had a flat tire on my way to work, ended up late and my boss was mad. The positive, if I had not had the flat I would not have met the kind person that helped me out, sure I was late, but it was a good lesson for me to realize that life happens and I'm not always in control. My boss was mad, but she/he was probably was just concerned about a deadline that was looming and it was a great opportunity for me to practice being positive.)

Have a great day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Generally a pretty positive person, I really need to work on my self-talk. I tend to be a perfectionist, so beat myself up when I don't meet ALL my goals, forgetting what I DID accomplish. So I thought this would be a great place to "hang out" and focus on the positive things and retrain my mind.

Beginning to understand that I really am capable of accomplishing my goals and I'm worth it, the excitement is building

Looking forward to great days ahead!

My name is Kathi and I've been with SP for almost 4 years. You know, I didn't plan on joining a new Spark Team today but so frequently I've seen the name Positive Bloggers and I think, "That's me!" So here I am acting spontaneously, something I should really do more often. My journey has been absolutely revitalized by joining some new teams recently and I'm really looking forward to joining all of you!
