I was away from Spark because of my trip to Calistoga, and now I find it hard to get back to it. I lost weight when I was sick for two weeks, but I see myself returning to my eating patterns. It is so simple to lose weight: eat less calories, that it!!!
So hard to do. So utterly hard. Especially when eating with other people.
I have lost my motivation. I need to keep thinking about my knees, and how happy they would be if I lost ten pounds. Somehow, it just all seems like so much damn work to do it!!!

I am becoming addicted to Spark! I think it is a healthy addiction. I just read their article on osteoarthritis. Now, "I know all that stuff", but I need continual reminders as motivation. The big three help prevent it: weight, exercise, and diet.
I already have arthritis. Getting up in the morning is hard, I know if I could lose even five pounds I would feel better. Why is it so hard to lose even one pound a week when I have been so religious about entering foods in the tracker?

Well, I see the point of the points. It is almost 8pm, I only had 19, so I thought I would post a blog. I thought I already had, wow, so easy to forget. I am getting regular with tracking my food. And then doing the end of the day analysis. If I am low on certain vitamins, then I take a vitamin. I wonder why I always am under on protein?

Well, it is the eleventh day of this virus, and I am getting pretty sick of it. Then I think of the people in Japan, and well, my little problem is so petty.
I have not been able to do all the things I normally do for my 93 year old mother. And sadly, it is such a relief!!! Being sick has been a reprieve. What does that mean? Whatever it means, it is not good.

Being sick combined with daylight savings time has upset my biological clock. I woke up at 9am this morning. Now it is 10 a.m. already, after fiddling with the computer. I hear people say,"oh I wasted so much time on the computer" I do not feel like this is a waste of time because I enjoy it so much. Whether I am surfing the internet about a topic that interests me, or playing these point games on Spark, which influence me to eat less, which is a good thing, well, why would this be a waste of time anymore than playing golf or canasta???
What is a waste of time is when you do something mindless when you have important other things to do.
I feel that I have spent most of my time my entire life in a way that was not "wasted". But then, I do not watch television!!!
