There is something quite theraputic about blogging. I've tried it before but found I didn't have a whole lot to say. I guess I didn't have a reason to blog.
Now, I feel more focused when I put things in writing. It pulls me back from the edge, when I may be bordering on doing something I shouldn't. It brings attention to things I'm concerned about. Then an amazing thing happens....Sparkers appear from everywhere.
There is always help right at your fingertips. So many people give of their time with advice, sympathy, and encouragement. It's so heartening! Who knew someone could have so many friends and people who are feeling just like them!
I have already traded messages with so many great people here! I feel so blessed. Some people are going through so much........I just have to count my blessings. I love sharing with you, reading your blogs, and becoming a part of your life. It truely helps.
I'm thankful to my doctor for showing me the way here. I am thankful for the Spark teams I am a part of. I am especially thankful for those of you who have stopped by to say "Hey", or to share a kind word, advice, and the encouragement I need to make progress in my task.
I'm gonna sign off or you will think I've taken too much allergy medicine! Have a great day! I wish you all weight loss!

Is anyone else having trouble with this allergy season? I spent time putting on makeup this morning and by noon, I had rubbed it all off. My eyes are driving me crazy!
I've never been hit this hard. I take Claritin D on an irregular basis(more regular at the moment), but I've never had the itchy eyes like I do now.
The dieting has been going pretty well this week. I'm not getting enough protein though. I'm not a big meat fan. I'm not a vegetarian but I'm not so crazy about meat. I do like eggs, but not every day.
My mission for the week is to investigate more protein options to round out the diet. Any suggestions?

I'm feeling a little restless this afternoon. I made the virtual model of myself, both before and after and what can I say...........I want it now! Yep! I want to be a spoiled brat who gets her way without having to do the work. Or maybe like a genie, who folds her arms and blinks to get her hearts desire.
But NOOOOOOOOO......I have to work at it. Seems so unfair. Wait!!!!!!! Don't say it.......I know you want to...........awww you did anyway! You're right! Life isn't fair, this isn't going to happen overnight, heck .....it won't even happen next week.
So I guess I'll keep plugging away and taking my small successes. (This is the part where I start kicking and screaming and holding my breath cuz I want to have my way!) Dang! That didn't work either. Well, you can't blame me for trying. Guess I'll go take a walk and burn off some of this frustration! Have a nice weekend!

I had to go out of town for work today. Which means I had to eat out. Boy were the temptations put in front of me. It wasn't a restaurant so I had to eat what was served.....a taco casserole and corn bread. I ate about a fourth of the casserole and two bites of corn bread. Then the waitress brought out "Better Than S**" Cake.
I thought, "How in the world am I going to resist this?" So I did the only thing I could do..................No, I didn't eat it.....all, anyway...........I had one small bite and pushed it aside. I tell you it was a very small thing, but I felt like a million bucks! I know two weeks ago, I would have eaten it. Yipee!
