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.

    Thank you for your kind words on my Meltdown blog. It helps to just be able to vent sometimes. I appreciate your compassion.

    In some ways I've found a new home, but it's still missing a close friend component. Outside of my sister I don't have anyone to talk to. I haven't really clicked with any of the women my age at temple, though I do go out to dinner with a few of them sometimes on Friday nights. The guitar jamming group is mostly married men, a lot of fun to play with but I just sing and go home. I'm hoping maybe I'll hit it off with some of the other women in my art gallery. We have monthly meetings and attend monthly opening receptions, plus I have to serve on a committee. So at least I'm getting out around people, even if I haven't connected the way I'd like to.

    You probably know me better sitting there at your computer in Canada than anyone here!

    Thanks for the goodie and for all the info on UK travels. The Internet hadn't been invented the last time I planned a major trip like this - what a difference it makes! Only 30 sleeps left till departure day Sept.24. emoticon
