SIEGRID is a SparkPeople Motivator!
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, trying again.....I hope this time I can do it.
Plant seeds of expectation in your mind; cultivate thoughts that anticipate achievement. Believe in yourself as being capable of overcoming all obstacles and weaknesses..

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.
to become as healthy as I can be and to accept myself for who I am.
Follow the SparkPeople program and try to do as much excercise as I can without making my back worse than it is.
I live in Quebec, Canada and love it here. My family and I are bilingual, French and English, although my written French isn't too hot!!
I love Lord of the Rings, both the books and the movies. I also love Harry Potter. Love to read..Stephen King, Dean Koonz, John Saul, James Patterson, Kathy Reichs etc.....In prehistoric times (when I was young), I used to barrel race.

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.
