What would you do?

Thursday, December 30, 2010

This is the biggest decision that I have to make today. Who should I lunch with? Should I lunch with teacher friends from my school district whom I have known for years or friends I have known for about a year who I walk/hike/ride with occasionally and are from a different district?

    Lunch with your old friends, hike with your new. How wonderful to have so many friends!

    Who asked you first? That way you can say, "I'd love to go but ____ asked me first. How about next week?" Nothing like putting words in your mouth!! LOL!! Enjoy!!

Back to the drawing board............

Wednesday, December 29, 2010

I will be making some changes. I have lost my weight and have done fine with maintaining (not without bumps in the road) but I have also gone astray. I'm staying within my calorie range but I'm not eating as healthy. I need to remember what got me here and remember to drink my water and eat more veggies and fruits. Wish me luck!

    You're not alone. I've done ok too. But I'm not taking the time to log my foods so I'm probably over on fats, or carbs. I need to get with the program as well.

    Good luck! I'm still up two pounds from where I was Sunday morning. I think I'm going to have to learn to "settle" for what is.

    You should be SO PROUD of what you've accomplished, and I know you are. But that doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement....that's what being human is all about -- not perfection, because that isn't possible, but CONTINUAL IMPROVEMENT.

You are my inspiration and I hope to be repeating this exact blog on December 28, 2011!!!

I would say "good luck" but I know you CAN and WILL do it!

Lunch with old friends

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

Today I'm lunching with old friends (they are not old but our friendships are). The last time I lunched with somel of them (there will be some out-of-towners) I weighed 34 pounds more. I'm anxious to see if anyone comments on my weight. We are eating at a 'brewery' and there are many rich items on the menu. No, problem, I can watch what I eat and still have fun. I have not seen one of the gals for over 27 years (before my first son was born) so I'll have to bore her with family photos. I plan on having a great time!

    It will be a wonderful time. At this age we really just want to catch up and be with them instead of one up them like our 5 year high school. Enjoy your reunion and I'll bet they will notice how young and thin you look!!

Shame on me...........

It's 3am and I'm reading The Spark. What's wrong (or right for that matter) with that picture!

emoticon This should be me!

I think I'll go weigh myself. That's another thing I shouldn't be doing at 3am!

The Spark Pt 2....

Sunday, December 26, 2010

A sparkfriend gave me The Spark for Christmas and I started reading it today. I didn't get very far but I'll have more time since we are done with our celebrations. We celebrated our last day of Christmas with my cousin and her kids and grandkids and had a great time but now it's time to get back to sparking. I think that a have a few pounds to shed but, thanks to SP, I think I should be able to do it within a week.

I hope that you had a great holiday. We can do this together!
