Queen of Best Intentions

I need to lose weight for my health. My family is worried about me and so am I. I want to be alive to enjoy grandchildren someday. Spark people has given me the tools to learn to love myself. This program has also given me the support I need to change my poor eating habits and to make exercise a daily part of my routine.

Hey there!
I was thinking of you and I wanted to check in and see how things are going in your part of the world.
I am sorry it has been so long since I written to you; between work and home life I just don’t seem to have the energy it takes to write emails anymore.
Right now I am off work for a few weeks; I had a surgery in July.
I am fine; just have to wait for doctor’s clearance to go back. In the mean time I am looking for a job that is a better match for me, too much drama where I am at right now. Some folks can’t get over how important they are!
I hope things are going well for you.
Drop me a note if you have time and let me know how you are doing.
Hugs,
Belinda

Hi.

One of my teammates posted this and it is so funny I wanted to share it with some folks that may not have had a chance to read it.

Here are some weight comparisons...What equivalent have you shed and what will you be shedding?

1 pound = a Guinea Pig
1.5 pounds = a dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts
2 pounds = a rack of baby back ribs
3 pounds = an average human brain
4 pounds = an ostrich egg
5 pounds = a Chihuahua
6 pounds = a human’s skin
7.5 pounds = an average newborn
8 pounds = a human head
10 pounds= chemical additives an American consumes each year
11 pounds = an average housecat
12 pounds = a Bald Eagle
15 pounds = 10 dozen large eggs
16 pounds = a sperm whale’s brain
20 pounds = an automobile tire
23 pounds = amount of pizza an average American eats in a year
24 pounds = a 3-gallon tub of super premium ice cream
25 pounds = an average 2 year old
30 pounds = amount of cheese an average American eats in a year
33 pounds = a cinder block
36 pounds = a mid-size microwave
40 pounds = a 5-gallon bottle of water or an average human leg
44 pounds = an elephant’s heart
50 pounds = a small bale of hay
55 pounds = a 5000 BTU air conditioner
60 pounds = an elephant’s penis (yep, weights more than his heart!)
66 pounds = fats and oils an average American eats in a year
70 pounds = an Irish Setter
77 pounds = a gold brick
80 pounds = the World’s Largest Ball of Tape
90 pounds = a newborn calf
100 pounds = a 2 month old horse
111 pounds = red meat an average American eats in a year
117 pounds = an average fashion model (and she’s 5’11”)
118 pounds = the complete Encyclopedia Britannica
120 pounds = amount of trash you throw away in a month
130 pounds = a newborn giraffe
138 pounds = potatoes an average American eats in a year
140 pounds = refined sugar an average American eats in a year
144 pounds = an average adult woman (and she’s 5’4”)
150 pounds = the complete Oxford English Dictionary
187 pounds = an average adult man
200 pounds = 2 Bloodhounds
235 pounds = Arnold Schwarzenegger
300 pounds = an average football lineman
400 pounds = a Welsh pony

I personally have lost a 2 month old horse. I am hoping to get rid of 2 bloodhounds and and an average 2 year old!
Remember, we do this 1 Guinea Pig at a time. emoticon
I hope you get a kick out of this too.
Hugs,
Belinda
