THIRD TIME'S A CHARM....so starting over more determined than ever. 8/13/12 " regained 36 # So it is back to what I know works....Without challenges, there would be no change".

With raising two sets of twins and living in the country there was never a dull moment in our house. You would have thought that with all the chores, errands and chasing kids that would have been enough to keep the weight off. No such luck however and each year along with age came a few more pounds. The last of our children has left home, and here I am at 52 wallowing in all this personal time that I had coveted for so long and thinking it�s not all that its cracked up to be. Finding Sparks has been my spark and I�m looking forward to making over a new me with as much energy as I did raising our family. It really is time for T! 1/18/10 Lost 44# and then faded out...
.....That was my first start last year which was going so well until I let family issues take control and gave up on myself. I'm back now, another year older, wiser and pulling myself together and putting me first again. YEAR TWO is going to be even better and I will reach my goal for nothing or nobody is going to stop me this time!!!. I Can, I Do, I Will!!!! 1/07/11 relost 15 # that I gained back and then 29 # more and then faded out again

    emoticon Tina, so glad to see you posting again, I've had a great summer too.. maybe not as exciting as yours [yours sounded REALLY good]but I've lost enough weight to leave the house now without shame and that's saying a lot for me. emoticon

    I'm up a little this past week, but I'm not throwing the towel in, that's something new I've learned this time around.. never, never give up! emoticon

    Hope to see more of you.. emoticon

    Also, glad you were able to save your pictures on your computer, that would be heart breaking to lose all your photo's.. I can relate, we had to buy an adaptor cord for our external hard-drive or we too would have lost 8 years worth of pictures. emoticon Guess that's the down side of going digital.

    Hi everyone. I finally got brave enough to take my computer in to yet another person to work on it that could actually save all my pictures for I was so afraid I was going to losing them as two other repair places said I would if they tried to fix the problem. I have about 10 years worth of them in my files Now backed up.... I should of just went out and got a new computer but hated the thought of the lost pictures and documents and I knew if changed I would never have them again. Any way I finally broke down and tried one more place and thank goodness I got someone who actually knew what they were doing and just didn’t' want to wipe out everything and have me start all over. Lesson learned if you got important things on computer you want saved back them up or make others copies because it’s not worth the loss that only a few more minutes takes to save... Any how I'm back now that I have my computer again and trying hard to get in gear. Had a great summer one of the best, very busy though. First our trip to Maui which was wonderful and then we bought a boat so we did more camping and boating than I've gotten to do in 25 years... I loved it all even when the weather wasn’t perfect. This last weekend we went and up graded to newer snowmobiles so we are ready for winter fun too. My farm boy is finally spreading his wings and we have been flying...but it is time to settle down and get back into shape again so I can continue to enjoy it all. Sorry I missed all your notes and goodies and wasn’t able to get back to you. Looks like most of you are making great progress which is going to be my incentive to kick it in.. So Keep it up ladies for I positively need the push, but I'm glad I’m back and seeing that you are all still here has made my day….. emoticon

    Tina, hope everything is alright with you and yours.. have you been enjoying this rain or does it make chores more difficult? Sure has turned everything pretty green in town, how about out in the country? I need to go for my favorite drive by Smith River, bet its beautiful out there!!!
