Thanks to Ldy_Ali_79 and Sparkpeople

Thursday, April 01, 2010

This is something I should have written before now, but better late then never. I am not good at this so bear with me.

Thanks to Tamika a friend and co-worker I have lost 30 pounds and counting. She was losing and looking good and always so happy. She told me about sparkpeople and said I should visit. I didn't. We talked about it several times and I finally visited. Nothing serious just tried to look around. Then I went to the doctor and he said my blood pressure was high (it had always been low), and he wanted me to go on medicine. Not good. When who should come down to my area Tamika. Long story short she helped me sign up showed me some of the features and generally encouraged me.

Any time I had any questions, problems whatever there she was, always with a smile and a good word. She gives suggestions but isn't pushy In fact just the opposite. She would say you did bad that's ok do good today. When she thought she was doing bad she would come down and tell me. I saw her when she stared and I see her now, She looks wonderful and has earned it.

I am off track here this is really to thank her because I never would have done it without her. Everyone should have a friend like her to help them reach whatever goal they are trying to obtain. She understand baby steps and never makes you feel bad. Thanks Tamika for all you encouragement and guidance. I am sure I will have many more questions glad I have you to ask Everyone who knows her already knows what I mean.

I feel like I am rambling so let me stop. Just wanted everyone to know what a great motivator she is.

Penny, on your progress! Even though you're lucky to have Tamika as your SparkPeople guide & co-worker, just remember without YOUR hardwork and dedication, your success would not be possible!

    Awh, thanks Penny! I'm late responding to this blog since I wasn't at work but out & about enjoying this nice weather.

Nevertheless, you deserve all the encouragement & respect because you've worked hard & stuck with it. Actually when I'm off, I check out your tracker & move forward.

So here's to another month, let's go out with a bang!!!!

I have no idea why but I have so much trouble doing eight glasses of water a day. I will do good for a day or two then back to the old habits of not drinking. for some reason i don't want to drink till night time. (maybe because i am a night person) it just doesn't seem like it should be all that hard to drink 8 glasses of water.

    I find using Crystal light or the WalMart brand helps me to drink all of the water. If I fill the glass with ice and then add the water, it goes down a lot easier.

  The best way for me to get in my glasses of water in is to fill up a Camelback container (which holds 3 8-oz glasses) with ice water, carry it around, and sip on it.

    Don't think about it. That's what I had to do.

Take care~

Was really getting somethings done around the house till this morning. Twisted my ankle stepping off the porch. (what a klutz) The good side it isn't broken, just hurts like the devil. Tomorrow will be better.

    Sorry to hear about your misstep off the porch!
Make sure rest that ankle so that there's not further damage.
Stay focused, determined, and positive.

    Hang in there! Oatmeal's a good choice if the stomach is upset, or something light like toast and hot tea. Hope you're feeling better! emoticon
