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.

    The fire is on the other side of the Mountain, so we are safe. Just so much smoke. This morning I heard the smoke drifted as far as Las Vegas. 4 hours East of us. Fire Fighters from other areas arrived at the site today, and they said that has helped. They are hoping more Fire Fighters can join them. Have a good week!

    Me too, I hate this weather so much and we have weeks to go yet. I didn't realize how much of a habit it had become to take walks - which is a good thing, but very frustrating right now.

    HI Gail
    lilos are plastic beds that you can lay on or take into the sea to float on and play on, almost like a waterproof inflatable bed!

    emoticon Hi Gail, yes I live on the Grand River and the Dinner Boat Cruise we're taking n two weeks is the one in Caledonia. We've taken it before and it's a lovely way to spend a few hours, good meal and entertainment on the boat also.

    Hope you're enjoying a nice Sunday!
