    CHAR - YES... I'M THAT WAY.. WHEN I WANT SOMETHING DONE I WANT IT DONE NOW NOT TOMORROW.... KEVIN LIKES TO PUT THINGS OFF BUT NOT ME. I LOVE LOOKING AT THE FINISHED RESULTS.

I'VE MADE HAM & BEANS IN THE CROCK POT BEFORE... I PUT THEM ON IN THE EVENING & LET THEM COOK OVERNIGHT... YUM YUM! THEY'LL ENJOY THEM. I DON'T EAT THEM ANYMORE... TOO MUCH CARBS & PHOSPHORUS FOR ME.

TAKE CARE.. GLAD YOU'RE RELAXING. YOU DESERVE IT MY CHAR. LOVE YOU, MARLA

FEEL LIKE WE ARE SLIPPING AWAY

Friday, July 24, 2009

YES I FEEL LIKE WE ARE SLIPPING AWAY! I JUST FEEL LIKE I HAVE TO GET THIS OFF MY CHEST!IT FEELS VERY DIFFERENT THAN WHEN I STARTED SPARK!SO MANY MORE SILENT MEMBERS!I KNOW EVERYONE HAS A LIFE OUTSIDE OF HERE BELIEVE ME I DO! I WORK TWO JOBS AND ONLY 1 WHOLE DAY OFF AND ALSO TRY AND RUN A HOUSE NOT AN EASY THING TO DO! BUT I FEEL EVERYONE SHOULD TRY AND PARTICIPATE IN ALL AREAS LIKE HUDDLE FIRST THING WHEN YOU COME ON THE TEAMS! READ BLOGS AND BLOG YOURSELF! GIVE TEAM SUPPORT. AND I JUST LOVE THE CHATS I LOVE MY TEAM TO PIECES!WHEN I FIRST STARTED I FELT WAY TO MUCH PRESSURE! THEN WAS MORE OR LEES FORCED INFORMATION AND ARTICLES THAT I ALL READY READ. EVERYONE KNOW HOW TO READ ARTICLES ALL ONE HAS TO DO IS MENTION AN ARTICLE AND WHERE TO FIND IT IF IT IS A GOOD ONE RIGHT? WELL THAT CHANGED AND FOR THE GOOD TO MUCH FIGHTING ETC. NOW WHEN I LOOK AROUND I DON'T FEEL LIKE ALOT ARE GIVING IT 100%. HOW ARE WE SUPPOSE TO MAKE IT IF WE DON'T GIVE IT ARE ALL?
SO I FEEL THINGS REALLY NEED TO CHANGE OR I FOR ONE AM NOT GOING TO MAKE IT THU THIS JOURNEY AND GET WHERE I AM SUPPOSE TO BE AT MY GOAL. IT IS FAST APPROACHING MY TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY HERE AND I LOST 30 POUND AND PUT WEIGHT BACK ON AND NOW I AM DOWN TO ONLY LOSING 17 POUNDS I THINK TWO YEARS I SHOULD BE AT MY GOAL BY NOW.AND I DON'T WANT TO MAKE IT THREE YEARS AND NOT AT MY GOAL I WANT TO GET THERE NOW. SO I HAVE BEEN SLOWLY MAKING SOME CHANGES I HAVE YET AGAIN CHANGED MY EXERCISE AND MY EATING HABIT THAT IS WHERE I AM HAVING THE VERY MOST PROBLEM! I CAN'T GIVE IN AND HAVE JUST ONE TO A CRAVING OF SUGAR CAUSE THEN I WANT IT ALL WEEK AND THAT IS WHY I AM RIGHT HERE NOW WHERE I AM AND THAT IS STUCK AT THE SAME WEIGHT FOR WAY TO LONG!SO I STILL HAVE MORE CHANGES TO MAKE AND I WILL GET TO WHERE I WANT TO GO BUT I GUESS I AM REACHING OUT! AND I KNOW THERE ARE MORE FRIENDS OUT THERE THAT NEED TO JOIN ME SO WHAT DO YOU SAY LET'S ALL BE TEAM PLAYERS AND LET THIS BE THE YEAR WE BREAK ALL THE BAD HABITS AND BE A TEAM PLAYER?
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR READING MY BLOG I REALLY DO APPRECIATE IT AND HUGS TO ALL,CHAR

    CHAR - I KNOW THAT I HAVE NOT BEEN BLOGGING MUCH LATELY... I AM NOT ABLE TO BLOG LIKE BEFORE... BUT I DO CHECK IN DAILY ON THE CHAT AS MUCH AS I CAN. I HAVE THINGS GOING ON IN MY LIFE THAT I DO NOT WANT TO DISCUSS HERE OR SHARE WITH THE WORLD... BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN WE ARE NOT MOTIVATED OR DEDICATED TO THIS TEAM...
BECAUSE OF YOU I AM MOTIVATED AGAIN AND HAVE SHOWN A LOSS FOR 2 WEEKS IN A ROW. WOO HOO SO THANKS FOR THAT...
NOW NO WORRIES MY FRIEND... PEOPLE ARE GIVING WHAT THEY ARE ABLE TO GIVE... WELL I GUESS I SHOULD SAY THAT I AM AND NOT SPEAK FOR THE OTHERS... AND EVEN WITH ALL THE STRESS IN MY LIFE I STILL TRY TO CHECK IN AS MUCH AS I CAN...

KEEP SPARKING MY FRIEND... YOU EFFORTS AND DEDICATION IS A WONDERFUL MOTIVATOR...
BUT PLEASE DON'T FEEL THAT WE ARE NOT WITH YOU IF WE CAN'T BE HERE AS MUCH AS WE USED TO... IT'S NOT THAT CASE AT ALL...

LOVE YOU AND BIG HUGS...

    CHAR - I'M GUILTY OF NOT BLOGGING AS MUCH AS I USED TO DO. I DON'T SEEM TO HAVE THE ENERGY ANYMORE.... PLUS I'M TRYING NOT TO BE ON THE COMPUTER SO MUCH, LIKE DIANE SAID. BUT I DO ENJOY READING YOUR BLOGS.. YOU ARE FAITHFUL AT THAT.

I LOVE OUR TEAM ALSO. YOU ALL ARE THE BEST FRIENDS EVER!

FOR ME, LOWERING MY CARBS SEEMS TO BE HELPING.... I KEEP THEM AROUND 240 GRAMS A DAY NOW.. I FEEL BETTER TOO. NOT CRAVING THINGS SO MUCH NOW. MAYBE THAT WOULD HELP YOU TOO.

LOVE YOU.... MARLA

    Char you are screaming a great message we all should be listening to! Life is busy especially in the summer for everyone but there is no reason for not being a TEAM PLAYER if that's what you signed up for then be one as you say participate in all aspects of the TEAM. I think everyone would like to be farther down the road then they are on this journey and each one has only themselves to account to as to where they are but YOU certainly recognize your areas that still need work and that is what is most important. We are all accountable only for ourselves and it boils down to being committed to a goal and not letting anything or anyone deter you from that goal. I know we could add alot of things to this TEAM but I for one left the other one because I was truthfully way overloaded with things to do and I do not want to sit and be a slave to the computer nor do I want any of our TEAM doing that so we try to keep it simple but if adding some things would help everyone then we can certainy figure out what to add and go for it. I think the important thing is NOT to BEAT yourself up because you don't feel you are where you ought to be, YOU ARE A WONDERFUL WORK IN PROGRESS my friend as we all are and just remember one important thing no actually two important things 1) GOD ISN'T FINISHED WITH YOU YET and 2) YOU ARE NOT ALONE!! We will make it yes we will and I for one will do whatever it takes!! Love Cheryl emoticon
