OLD PAGES -- saving for reflections

Hi there. Me and You. I've been on and off Spark for two years after a very successful SPARKtastic 2010=2012 where I lost 80lbs! Yes. I did that! With the companionship, goals and support of this community. Since then I've been waffling.

Name: Paula Jean
STARTING WT 235 then 223 (Spark Start, July 2010)
Benchmark WT 177.6 **11/1/11
GOAL #1 WT 175 11/8/11 "overweight" not "obese"
GOAL #1.5 150-160 Maintained 2012-2013 then gained +8!
slowly +15-20
RESTARTING WT 175 3/15

ONWARD & DOWNWARD

I WANT TO FEEL GOOD LIKE I DID BEFORE... When tracking and eating "clean" felt entirely second nature even the "work" of it was fun and centered and just how I did things.

So Please Join ME. Let's hang out together AND LIGHT THE FIRE!!

STARTING WT 176#
GOAL WT 135#

Track Daily. Move Daily track movement too somehow.
Write menus and shopping lists if it helps.
DRINK WATER!

You know how it works. It works when you work it.


Fully Commit
Gather stones Move stones
Seriously P. Now

TRACK, WATER, MOVE, Eat Sustainably
Fresh Vegetables & Fruits

*"The scale is a ouiji board, a dishonest fortune teller. There are no answers on the scale" Onward & Downward is all I need to know.*

Shi(F)t Happens! Daily Practice. Honesty and Loyalty to Self. Goal by Goal. Reward to reward.

Let Energy Rise. Stay with transitions pivots remember to remember. Onward and Downward. Faith


OTHER GOALS!! to set!!!

*"The scale is a ouiji board, a dishonest fortune teller. There are no answers on the scale" Onward & Downward is all I need to know.*

I am thrilled and grateful be sharing this path with so many of you remarkable friends here. Thank you!

Thanks for the goodie! I'm so far behind in Sparking right now, I just now got it from yesterday (or was it the day before). It was sweet of you to send me one and bring me back into the fold!
