... to people who are very active on SP, logging, blogging, posting, and then one fine day they are gone? The link to their SparkPage is no longer active, and they cannot be found anywhere.
Are they still here but starting over under a new screen name to preserve anonymity or have they given up?
I makes me sad to lose SparkFriends this way. Yes, this is a cyber friendship but nevertheless, these people have shared parts of their lives with me. They have shared their wisdom, their triumphs, and their struggles.
There are plenty of people on SP with whom I have corresponded over the years, who are no longer active. But, they have not taken down their pages, so I'm thinking maybe one day they'll be back. And many of them do come back and it's always great when they do.
What could possibly happen that would prompt me to take down my entire page? I'm puzzled...

I had quite an interesting evening last night. Went to a Sunrider meeting.
During the course of the presentation they spoke about their philosophy, manufacturing methods, balancing nutrition and other interesting and informative topics.
Here is one that really made me think. When Dr. Chen was speaking about weight-loss and balancing nutrition he asked why we thought that people who go on a protein diet lose weight rather quickly. His answer was, that since they're practically overdosing on protein and not getting balanced nutrition they're actually poisoning themselves. So, it's not that they're losing the weight and get healthier, they're losing the weight because they're dying. I thought that this is a quite interesting opinion and it really drove home a point.
So here we are at SP, balancing our nutrition and doing it right. No gags, no gimmicks, no shortcuts, no regrets.
I'm very happy to be here and very happy my SparkFriends are journeying alongside me.

Spent the day at a convention today. These things are always great fun, however, you've got to go slow on water and any other kind of liquid in order to avoid the grimy bathrooms as much as possible.
Well, since I had decided that this month I would finally get back on track with my water intake, which has been lagging greatly over the past few months, this was a really tricky situation, but I'm determined not to break my streak on the third day of the month already.
When we got home around 20:30 my water total for day day was at 2 cups. Not a pretty situation. In the past two hours I've made it up to 7 cups. Leaves me with one more cup before I go to bed.
Well, I wonder how many times I'll need to get up tonight...
But, stubborn as I am, I will not break this streak this month.
So, bottoms up... here I go.

Every December Iím looking forward to January, to leaving the holiday craziness behind and of course to new beginnings.
Well, most of January saw me sick. It started with a sore throat just a couple of days after New Yearís, progressed to a full blown cold and later to a sinus infection at which point I saw no choice but to visit my doctor who put me on antibiotics. And while the antibiotics helped clear up the snot in my head they in turn gave me a yeast infection.
In addition, during my doctor visit I found out that the crick in my neck, which I had since December, is not just a crick but most likely arthritis. Made me worried that Iíll have to live with this pain for the rest of my life, which could, God willing, be another 30+ years.
Through it all I did soldier through Boot Camp. I had been really looking forward to this (my first ever challenge on SP) and I was determined to finish. I have to admit that there were days when I could not do Boot Camp but I made up every single exercise on a day when I could.
So here we are on the last day of this very trying January 2010, moving forward and looking ahead, wondering what February has in store.

Went back to my power tae class today for the first time in about 10 days, as I had to sit out due to being sick. The class went really well for me, which surprised me, 'cause usually, after having taken a break of a week or more it's really hard to get back into it and I can feel stamina lost.
Not so today and I credit it all to bootcamp. Yes, I kept up with bootcamp even while I was sick and I really think that's what saved my power tae class today.
Thanks SparkPeople! Thanks Coach Denise for putting on the challenge! Thanks Coach Nicole for the awesome exercise demonstrations!
Now can we have a February bootcamp?
