April 16/16

I joined Spark People in January, 2011, to lose weight before my son's April wedding.

Since that time, I've lost weight, regained it, lost again... you get the picture. Spark People doesn't offer any magical solutions. It offers good advice on nutrition and exercising. It offers a network of teams, challenges and wonderful friends.

Even though I haven't reached my goal, I believe that Spark People has helped me break the pattern of gaining weight each year. I plan to follow this program for the rest of my life, and to gradually reduce my weight.

    That's nice your Hubby and Daughter still get together. The few times my Dad and I did something, just the two of us, I remember!

    Forgive me, but I burst out laughing when I got to the part where the woman wouldn't stand next to you in choir! Thanks for weighing in on the job-hunting, it really helps me to keep some perspective. The music jam was really fun, by the way. They do it twice a month and I'm already looking forward to the next one.

    Our students return the first week day after Labor Day. Our vacations during the year have been shortened. We have 2 days off for Thanksgiving, usually about 5 for Christmas, and a week for Spring Break. They are usually done at the end of the first week in June.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. Walking is my go to fitness. I love I can do it anywhere and don't have to get dressed up to do it.
