What is it that just about every weekend we, no I get 2s and 3s on the Sparkpoints wheel? I look at it go around and around, the big numbers getting closer as the wheel slows down, then just as I think I got the big one, the wheel got a little bit more 'gas' and in a last ditch effort, almost as a last thought, finally stops on the next point value, usually a 2 or a 3. Seems to me that weekends are when most sparkers need a little incentive to curve indulgence or slack off! Anyway, I had to get that off my chest! Have a great Sunday.

Take a couple of minutes today to remember those who fought to make the world a better place to live. Thank those who sacrificed so much, those who came back and those who died.
LEST WE FORGET!

I just got back on SP after getting fed up last March about my lack of progress since Xmas and feeling more or less like a fraud for giving 'pep talks' to others while I was doing so poorly myself. I just felt I needed a break from it all; SP can be very time-consuming, if you let it... and I did. I believed I could 'fly' on my own for a while. After all, I had read just about everything I could on SP, so how could I fail!
First, my back started to give me grief, so the daily exercises gradually went by the wayside. Then, the bbq season/outdoors parties started... To make a long story short, I gained back half of the weight I lost and I really felt lousy, both physically and mentally. I very much regret not to have kept up with the basic program, keeping my food diary and my fitness diary, even if I only did half I used to do. BEWARE! If you are at the point I found myself late last winter, hang in there. Don't ever quit!
So here I am, trying very hard to get back on track. BOY! Is it ever difficult. I lost that sense of urgency I had when I first started last year. On a positive note, I'm still 20 lbs ahead of where I was a year ago. I want to get back into shape and start losing weight again and I'm going to take it and make it one day at a time.

I've been in a funky mood for a few days now, no desire to exercise, no desire to get strict with the food but still logging it in, eating a piece of chocolate here and there, not thirsty AT ALL, no real enthusiasm for anything. Of course, those are the reasons I have been hovering around the 240 lbs mark.
The grandkids are coming over for the weekend and so is my eldest son who wants to spend some time with them (he's away in the military.) They will be a welcome change. I know I'll be tired at the end of the day but I think they will do me a lot of good. It's also my youngest son's 25th birthday this weekend but I don't think he has any plans to come and visit. I can imagine he has some partying to do in town. Ah! To be young again... but then again, they have their own set of difficulties. See what I mean? What kind of funky mood is that.
Anyways, I think I will take a break from SP just for the rest of the week but I will still be watching what I eat, I promise. I still intend to reach my goal weight by the end of the year and, as the saying goes, " if it's meant to be, it's up to me. " I am hoping that by Monday, I'll have shaken off this gloom that has come over me and I'll be all set to restart my 'strategy for healthy living' (I still hate the word DIET).
Today, it is sunny and crisp outside and I think that a little walk with my little pooch is just what the doctor has prescribed.
See ya Monday!
