Never Give Up...

I have been a part of Spark since August 2008! I have reached my goal original goal of 182 lbs. I've made many positive changes in my life in the time spent here. I made many wonderful Spark Friends, some of whom I have had the pleasure to meet in person. Without them and Spark I would have thrown in the proverbial towel and just quit trying to do more to lose weight, to do more to learn about nutrition, to do more to better myself physically and mentally, to better understand the why and what ...

I made many wonderful Spark Friends, some of whom I have had the pleasure to meet in person. Without them and Spark I would have thrown in the proverbial towel and just quit trying to do more to lose weight, to do more to learn about nutrition, to do more to better myself physically and mentally, to better understand the why and what of my eating disorder (mindless) to better coup with it.
It is up to me to "Make It Happen" if I don't who will...no one! Always back to those initial small steps to make changes for the better. To battle mindless eating every single day is an ongoing challenge.

OK, I'd be happy to show you where it's done. First thing you always do your regular spin by going to your Spark Points page -- you get there by going to Trackers at the top of your page. Once your points for the day get to 25 you will be notified that you get a "bonus" spin. You click on that and get points for your bonus spin. I keep track of them by regular spin (the first one) and the bonus spin, available after you've gotten 25 or more points for the day.

Then click on START -- up by the Tracker only more to the left. On that page you can click on various things you may not have collected points on as yet. As you scroll down the page, toward the bottom you will see all the teams you belong to. I believe there is a little red flag by each one, you click on the red flag to get your "spin" number for each team.

Good luck! Now go out there and rack up those points!
Hugs, Eve

Joanne, are you sure you got a 7 on your team spin? The only numbers I have ever seen are 1, 2, or 3 and then 10, 20, or 50. It is the spin that is done from the START page, not the log-in spin or the bonus spin.

Just thought maybe you didn't know which "spin" we were referring to.
Thanks, Eve

Thanks for the tree. For the first time ever, we decided not to put up a tree. My living room is so small that I have to do some major shifting around to fit it in. And, my DS told me that I don't need to set one up for him. He knows that after he moves out we weren't planning on putting one up. We gave the kids ornaments each year (wood, from our area) and when they leave home they take their own ornaments for their own trees. So, I won't have any ornaments to speak of.
But, I'm still thankful to have one on my page. It is a German tradition to put it up on the 24th, but that seemed like such a short time, since they take it down again on the 6th of January. Too much work.
