I have absolutely nothing to say - life is going on as usual - same old, same old !! My weight is - oh so slowly - dropping off! The dogs hate the cold weather, as always and really - that's it!!

Instant messaging

Sunday, June 28, 2009

Ever since the instant messaging system came in I have had lots of different logging in problems and very slow loading..
Recently I discovered how to turn it off (I haven't used it anyway) and my problems disappeared.
I have a feeling that it might be that its great for people with high speed internet connection but if - like me - you have a slower rate - not of my choice -then it can cause problems!! emoticon


Spread the Spark Weekend -

Friday, June 26, 2009

Its all about effort - right?
Well I went shopping in my Sparkpeople T shirt, then we had a Rally!! The turn up consisted of - Me - hubbie (behind the camera), our 2 dogs (watching fascinated from the window). lots of wild birds, and Herbie 2 (my scooter) but then what do you expect in the bush!! At least the sun came out!!
Anyway - SP asked for photos and here is mine!!

I hope the US rallies were better attended!!

‘Spread the Spark’ weekend: Now, I dare to dream!!

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

This is my contribution to the ‘ Spread the Spark’ weekend since a rally of 1 doesn’t really have the same impact!! However I shall wear my ‘Sparkpeople’ T shirt with pride and think of the fun you are having in the US, because:
Now, I dare to dream!!
I have been with SP for 17wks now and during that time have lost 10kg. My attitude to weight loss has completely changed. My focus has done an about turn from looking back, giving up on weight loss, to looking forward in a very positive way. This change is entirely due to Sparkpeople, so I decided it was time to rewrite my introduction on my Spark Page
I am, for the first time in my life, proud of what I have lost already and looking forward to being a ‘normal’ weight, looking forward to the journey, the fun, the adventure of the weight loss, and then to the maintenance of that weight and, hopefully a lifelong association with SP and also with the many friends I have made, and hope to continue to make, along the way.
If you are interested in how Sparkpeople has changed my life, please visit my Sparkpage.

Here, we are in the middle of Winter - our dry season - but since the start of Winter we have had showers on and off. Today there was heavy rain just south of us - enough to cause flash flooding and now we are being told there could be more heavy rain and thunderstorms!! '
And this is our dry season!!
Still it has compensations - the temperatures are milder than they might have been had we had a normal dry Winter!!
Agggh!! WHAT is happening to the weather????

Sorry if anyone reading this is bored by it - but I had nothing to blog on and don't we all revert to the weather when there is nothing else!!

    It seems that world weather patterns are changing. Is it just part of a natural cycle of change ( historically this is factual) or have we really brought about this 'global warming'?
