SLACKING OFF YES I FEEL WE ARE SLACKING OFF NOW WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT? let's see how many great ideas we can come up with on this slacking off so we can get back on this healthy life style change so we can get to where we want to be!HEY WHAT HAPPENED THERE?SEE THAT MEANS I WASN'T PAYING ATTENTION!ONE THING I HAVE TO DO MORE IS PAY ATTENTION AND NOT JUST HOW I AM TYPING HOW AND WHAT I AM EATING!I FEEL WE NEED MORE TEAM PARTICIPATION IN ALL AREAS READING AND WRITING BLOGS WITH HELPFUL INFORMATION TO MAKE IT TO WHERE WE WANT TO BE IN THIS LIFESTYLE CHANGE. I FEEL I FOR ONE HAVE GOTTEN TO RELAXED IN A BAD WAY MY MIND ISN'T SET THE WAY IT WAS WHEN I STARTED SPARK AND I NEED THAT SPARK BACK IF I AM GOING TO MAKE IT. I AM SO THANKFUL FOR FINDING THIS FREE SITE AND GREAT PEOPLE.AND FOR KEEPING UP WITH SOME THINGS I HAVE LEARNED LIKE DRINKING AT LEAST 8-8OZ GLASSES OF WATER A DAY,EATING 5 FRUITS AND VEGGIES A DAY AND EXERCISING I HAVE NEVER MISSED A DAY AT ALL OF ANY OF THESE ONLY FRUIT AND VEGGIES ONE DAY WHEN I HAD TO FAST FOR A TEST THAT IS IT MY MIND THAN GOODNESS HAS KEPT UP WITH ALL OF THAT AND ALSO NEVER HAVE MISSED A DAY OF TRACKING ALL MY FOOD! BUT I HAVE LOST 30 POUNDS AND GAINED BACK SOME SO NOW I REALLY HAVE ONLY LOST 12 POUNDS AND IS SLOWLY COMING BACK AND I KNOW I HAVE WORKED TO HAD TO START ALL OVER FROM THE BEGINNING AND WANT TO DO THIS AND I WANT IT NOW! SO WITH ALL OF YOUR HELP WE CAN AND WILL DO THIS TOGETHER. WE HAVE MADE SOME GREAT FRIENDSHIPS ALONG THE WAY! BUT WE NEED TO SUPPORT EACH OTHER BY READING AND WRITING BLOGS AND FINDING OUT WHERE WE ARE GOING WRONG AND HELP EACH OTHER!SO COME ON PEOPLE LET'S GO DOWN WITH THE POUNDS AND GET TO OUR GOALS! HOW HAVE YOU BEEN DOING WITH YOUR JOURNEY AND IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY WITH WHERE E YOU ARE LOOK AT WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND CHANGE ONE THING AT A TIME TILL YOU CAN GET TO WHERE YOU WANT TO BE AND BY BLOGING AND TELLING EVERYONE WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND HOW WILL HELP EACH OF US LOOK AT WHAT WE ARE DOING AND MAYBE WE CAN TRY WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND YOU CAN TRY WHAT WE ARE DOING AND BY TWEAKING A LITTLE HERE AND THERE WE WILL GET THIS WEIGHT OFF AND FOR GOOD AND WE WILL FEEL SO MUCH BETTER AND LOOK SO MUCH BETTER AND HAVE SO MUCH MORE ENERGY!

    Char, you are so right. There seems to be so many of us in the same boat. I want my Spark back too! I'm exercising and drinking my water, but it's the eating that's getting to me, and it's all about stress. I want to find other ways to deal with the stress, because I know it's not going away!! Thanks for the pep talk!

    CHAR, GOOD FOR YOU FOR BRINGING THIS TO ALL OF OUR ATTENTIONS! I THINK ONE OF THE BIGGEST SET BACKS WE FACE ON SPARK IS THAT WE ALL GET ON TEAMS AND THEN THEY TURN TO CHAT ROOMS AND WE ALL LOSE SIGHT OF WHY WE CAME HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE! EVEN WITH ALL THAT, I HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT I THINK YOU ARE ONE OF THE MOST FOCUSED PEOPLE AND THIS KICK IN THE BUTT, COMING FROM YOU, IS SUCH A GREAT MOTIVATION! THANKS FOR GETTING IT OUT THERE. I AM SURE MANY OF US WILL BE FOLLOWING YOUR LEAD AND "GETTING IT DONE!"

    Char Kathy and I had this conversation not long ago as well. My problems started with the mess on the other team. I was doing so darn well and right after that things just fell apart not just the team but in my life as well with Uncle BJ, Laurie, Dragon Lady well you understand and I let OTHER things take control from me and I too want more then anything to take it back and get back to where I was heading so well. I have pushed other things that were important aside to wallow in feeling sorry for all the bad things going on when I need to remember that's just LIFE 101. I hear you, I need you and I will make that new start with you!! Love Cheryl

    Nice to have you back Char sounds like it was alot of fun and you can make getting lost sound so much fun hehehehe. Glad you found some things you wanted and heh your a working girl so you deserve to splurge on yourself when you get the chance. Isn't it wonderful when you come home and the pets have missed you? Too bad husbands don't do it as well as they do huh? Love you Cheryl
