My Goals:
I've been the Queen of all the yo-yo diets. Tried every diet, scam, program on the block. If it's out there, I've tried it. Even went as far as GBS. Lost about 80 lbs, but never reached Goal Weight. Now I'm back in the saddle for the LAST time. Now I'm doing it for me! I WILL succeed!

My Program:
I am NOT dieting!!!
I am having a lifestyle change. I am on my page multiple times each day. I enter EVERY thing that goes into my mouth -- even the bad stuff. I only have ME to be accountable to and I CAN do this!

Personal Information:
I'm 50 years old, married with 2 grown sons. Both are married each have 2 children. My husband is the greatest husband in the world. He has loved me through all of my battles and at any size.

So glad to see you back sparking. It's hard to believe it was a little bit over a year ago we met. Great memories! Be blessed today.

Hi Karine,
Thank you for the wonderful compliment on my photo! I like~ I like! emoticon Seriously, I do appreciate it!

About the "Smiley" faces, I am so glad you have brought it to my attention. I wrote the blog on the Wednesday the 19th and I also started that day as well. It can be confusing when others are giving "Smiley" faces as goodies too. So we are only counting the goodies we are sending ourselves., one per day. I wait until the evening to do this.

A person should have 4 "Smiley" faces by this evening the 22nd.

The weirdest thing, I looked at my goodies and their dates. I'm confused because I am missing the 21st?

These are dates and the notes I gave myself.....
Oct 19 ~Congratulations on your 1st "Smiley" face! Keep on Tracking!

Oct 20~ Way to go Rachel! day 2 done!!!!

Oct 22 Oh yeah...... your 3rd smiley face ! Way to go!

emoticon emoticon emoticon What happened to day 21??? I know I've been tracking 4 consecutive days, including this evening so I'm not sure what happened. I will give myself a smiley for today my day four.

I better let others know.....just in case you are given a "Smiley face from other sparkers.
I hope I cleared your emoticon I'm still puzzled with day 21 Oh well.....I know that I did and will give myself credit for it!
