Thanks for the goodie! I've actually had 2 weeks in a row with 4 lb weight loss, but I'm guessing it's gonna start getting really hard soon. I was away for 2 months, and I know the first few weeks are sometimes the easiest weeks I'll see :-) It is very motivating , though!

Hi Tonni!

I miss you!! I just had a second so I am trying to catch up with some of my spark friends. I have really not been sparking at all - haven't logged in for months. Just so stinkin' busy! I'm working about 60 hours a week now between my two jobs, plus doing some freelance work on the side, taking some online training and trying to help my husband get a real estate investing business off the ground...oh yeah, and trying to be a mom in there somewhere to my 15 and 17 year old boys too. Sadly, really not much time to take care of myself...I know, I need to make the time - it should be a priority. I think we're just kind of subsisting in crisis mode still. My husband still is unemployed, but has been very busy doing odd jobs himself here and there plus helping my dad with a huge project, so he has been on the run almost as much as I am. Again, sadly, I have gained weight. Very frustrated with myself that I'm not doing better - I seem to be stuck in a rut of eating the wrong foods, and surprisingly, too much - don't seem to get much help from the band at all these days, and I even got another fill a few months back, but only seemed to help for a few weeks. I think I mostly need to get my head screwed on straight again.

Anyway, I don't mean to go on and on. Just wanted to let you know that I'm still alive and really do plan to get back to Spark one of these days, I just don't have much leisure time. Kind of dropped off the face of the earth from facebook too. I'm really sorry...I don't mean to desert my friends. I think about you often and can't wait until I can get back on track and be here connecting with all my spark buddies. I do get email notifications when someone posts on my page, so I'll do my best to at least pop in and reply when I can.

Take care - sending you a big spark hug!!


P.S. I see by your ticker that you are doing a great with your weight loss. Keep up the good work!
