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 ...

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.

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.

Thanks for the emoticon . Could come in handy.
Looked at your food log. You are inspiring me to go back to those basics. Thanks for the ideas.
