The wall paper on this page is my weight loss statistics from the time that I set up my SparkPeople account. I'm not as big of a math geek as the wallpaper and the page title imply. They are a bit of not-so-subtle self-loathing that I've been on SP for 4 years and have done what lots of people do--lost some weight and then regained it when life got hurried or hard or when eating pizza seemed easier and more fun than making meals at home.

The time commitment to change the behaviors and take the time to track them is my downfall

March 2013--9 months and 68 pounds to go
January 2013--12 months and 75 pounds to go
September 2012--In the last two years my BP has risen, so I'm inspired to exercise and to lose weight. My 50th birthday is December 20, 2013. Fifteen months is enough time to make slow steady progress on losing 100 pounds. I just have to pay attention and keep on keepin' on.

I've really got to use my imagination
To think of good reasons to keep on keepin' on
Got to make the best of a bad situation

    2. The Umbrella Song Sara Mullett
    Down come the rain drops SPLASH, SPLASH, SPLASH! (stamp feet on the splashes)
    Let’s run for cover, DASH, DASH, DASH! (run on the spot)
    Pitter patter, pitter patter, DRIP, DRIP, DROP! (clap hands in rhythm)
    I’m under my umbrella till the raindrops STOP!


    The rain is raining all around,
    It falls on field and tree,
    It rains on the umbrellas here,
    And on the ships at sea.
    - Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1895).

    3. Rain On The Green Grass
    Rain on the green grass,
    And rain on the sea,
    Rain on the house-tops,
    But not on me!
