I joined Spark People in January, 2011, to lose weight before my son's April wedding.

Since that time, I've lost weight, regained it, lost again... you get the picture. Spark People doesn't offer any magical solutions. It offers good advice on nutrition and exercising. It offers a network of teams, challenges and wonderful friends.

I joined Spark People in January, 2011, to lose weight before my son's April wedding.

Since that time, I've lost weight, regained it, lost again... you get the picture. Spark People doesn't offer any magical solutions. It offers good advice on nutrition and exercising. It offers a network of teams, challenges and wonderful friends.

Even though I haven't reached my goal, I believe that Spark People has helped me break the pattern of gaining weight each year. I plan to follow this program for the rest of my life, and to gradually reduce my weight.

No, got that from Google Images but my lettuce is about that size. Today I'm going to get a cherry tomato plant and a big container. I don't like the varieties they sell as 'patio tomatoes', but I've been reading up and people say you can grow any variety in pots, you just have to be creative about staking them if they're 'indeterminate' in other words not size-limited. But I think I can drape the plant over the porch railing when it gets too big for the cage. Might look kind of cool, a cherry-tomato-draped porch.

OMG I just read the latest blog by the 174-pound loser, about what she eats. Her main food groups are Banquet frozen dinners, white-bread hot dog buns, canned vegetables and lunch meats. She works at home as a writer and only has one kid, but apparently has no time to cook or has convinced herself that it would be more expensive. And proudly doesn't exercise. SparkPeople is getting weird.

I know you volunteer a lot. Have you ever had it happen that someone says they urgently need volunteers, and then when you show up they have more people than they need and you're just left awkwardly standing around? This has happened twice to me at the temple and it's making me feel really bad. I think it just intensifies my feeling of being a disconnected outsider.
