The leaves are falling and Christmas is just a little more than 2 months away... then we will say good-bye to 2014 and welcome the new year.

My virtual walk from Land's End, Cornwall, to John O'Groats, Scotland continues. I have now walked more than 940 miles and am approaching Loch Ness... do you suppose I'll catch a glimpse of Nessie? My goal is to finish this walk by December 31/14. However I am having cataract surgery on November 4 and 18, and the surgeon's instructions at this point say no treadmill for 2 weeks after each surgery. i am hoping that he will allow me to use it for walking (I can understand no running) sooner than that.

I re-calculated my weight loss goals the first of June, and have successfully met my new goal of losing 5 lbs. every 2 months. I am on schedule to reach my goal of 150 lbs. by the end of February, 2015. I'm wearing size 12 pants, and hope to get back into my size 10 black dress pants soon.

I am down 32 lbs. from when I started the program, and I will keep Sparking for the rest of my life, because I know that I cannot go back to the way I used to eat.

I have met some wonderful new friends on SP. We care about each other, and support each other through the ups and downs of our lives. I could never have done this without you... a very sincere thank you.

Hello Gail, Thank you for taking time to read my blog and send such thoughtful encouragement. I actually engaged in some therapy sessions while disengaging from my abusive 2nd husband and it helped a great deal. I have made a great deal of progress. Most of the time I function quite well. Right now I am transitioning into retirement plus a move of more than a thousand miles from where I spent most of my adult life. It is basically a good move but it has thrown me into a whole new way of life which has been unsettling. Just becoming more public about this issue was actually part of my effort to get it outside of my head so I could get rid of it.

By the way, I am also still getting used to this 21st century technology that let's me carry on a dialogue with people from all over the world as though they were right next door. Talk about an adjustment. And thank you ever so much.

Carol

Thanks for the comments on my BLOG. I have to say I was not wanting to go this time. We always go together so I had to go since we had all the goodies I bought the college paid for. I am happy I went. DH had a long rest. We are hoping the pain in the eye will be resolving. THANKS for your support. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon
