Siegrid's place

Welcome and thank you for visiting my page. My name is Siegrid and I am a foodaholic or just plain addicted to food.
I have been with Spark People since February 2008 and had gone down from 220lbs to 132lbs which was past my original goal of 140lbs. I had reached my goal by october 2008 and managed to maintain until the middle of 2010, when my Dad died. Since then I have been going uphill.. I have tried and tried to restart here, but I have failed time and time again.
So, here I am, ...

I'm positive I can do this
I'm positive I'm making progress
I'm positive because I'm sure of myself
I'm positive because I have a goal!
I'm positive because I know where I am going
I'm positive I'll get there.

Hi Siegrid! I thought I had read Jane Austen but now that I've started, I don't think I have. Sense and Sensibility is the book of the month for another reading themed Spark team that I am a member of. I am only into the second chapter so hard to say if I'll like it. The only thing I've noticed is the sentences are very long and the language is definitely from another era!

Siegrid - It's so good to hear from you. When life becomes oppressive, I tend to cocoon to avoid communication. For me, that's the worse thing I can do. I've found the company of others to be uplifting, and I especially enjoy being around younger people. They're so vibrant, and it tends to rub off on me.

Your back is the core of your bone structure, so pain can be debilitating. Reading between the lines of your note, it appears you're having major issues that could affect your mobility. I hope I'm wrong, and that patience and time will bring healing.

As you noted, I've been taking exercise very seriously and am much stronger. When you're feeling down, please reach out and lean on me. I'm very sturdy. Although I might be faraway living in Canada's obstreperous neighboring country to the south, I can still listen and offer support.

Take care and feel better.
