Life has many twists and turns. I am starting to learn that all experiences are beneficial, though not all are pleasant or happy. Is there something after all, to the Chinese philosophy of everything in balance? I am not convinced yet.
Perhaps rather, that God makes all things work for the good, for those in Christ Jesus. Perhaps the Chinese are not quite with the God-theory yet...
I have started my second run of SparkPeople on the 7th of May, 2009. The first run ran into the ground in 2007. End of 2007. This time I am in it for the long haul.
I very strongly dislike failing, especially at something as easy as making SP work. But I know that bumps and wobbles will be part of it. So I have to calm my mind, re-group my thinking all the time, and get back on track when I get off...because I AM IN THIS FOR THE LONG HAUL.
This is probably one of the most important projects I have ever tackled. In 51 years (ok, make that 51 minus 15) I have not yet succeeded to keep any amount of weight off for longer than 5 years!
I know that if I can beat myself at this, I would have grown in leaps and bounds, I would be a better, stronger and happier me!!
I have to learn much, so this project will consume quite a bit of energy...

    No problem. I saw you blog and just thought I would give some advice. Your weight can fluctuate 1-5 pound per day so the people who weigh in on a daily basis get frustrated because they thing they did not lose anything. I know because I was one of those people! LOL! So now only once maybe twice a month. I measure myself on the opposite weeks I weigh myself. Talk to you soon!

    OK friend - don't keep us in'd the weigh-in go?

    I've been so bad lately. I didn't get weighed this month because I know I gained. Will wait for September, which is right around the corner. AND hope for the best. I sure don't want to see over 150 ever again!!!

    Are you aware that you are always "on line". No matter when I log on, my friend online icon shows that you are "available" - now below your name it has a whole list of Offline friends. Of course it tells me I am "available" even though I haven't logged on to the Meebo thingie. Do I show as "available" - I really don't understand the system. I have used it a few times to chat in real time with some Spark Friends.

    Hope you got good news with the weigh-in. BUT!!! Do not despair. Your last few pounds will come off. And I'm sure you've dropped a dress size or two....

    Enjoy the rest of the Summer. Are all your of your visitors gone?

    Take care.
