Sparkers are the best~!

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

To all fellow SparkPeople.....

Thank you for being the best community in the land! I have "met" so many wonderful, kind, thoughtful, caring, funny, warm and nurturing SparkFriends. I cannot believe how much I have changed (for the better, of course!) since joining SparkPeople.

There just isn't an adequate way to let you know how much you mean to me, so a heartfelt THANK YOU will have to do. You ROCK!!!!

    I feel the same Mary- I haven't met a Sparker I haven't gotten on with or not liked.
I've become a far more positive person emoticon

Healing thoughts needed.....

Monday, August 30, 2010

Hi SparkFriends!

One of our fellow sparkers has a need for prayers/healing thoughts. Lisa579's friend Karen is very ill (cancer). If you're so inclined, please visit Lisa579's blog from yesterday (8/29/10) and send some much needed healing and caring thoughts!

Thank you so much!!!!

Another First!

Saturday, August 28, 2010

Here's what I ate at the Minnesota State Fair this year:

Perfect Pickle (deep fried pickle slices - about 8 )
1/2 Strawberry smoothie (sweetened strawberries, protein powder, ice)
1/2 dish of vanilla Nitro Ice Cream (no toppings)

That's it! Nothing else fried, nothing on a stick, nothing with chocolate or gooey-ness, nothing laden with fat (ok...thedeep fried pickles have fat, but compared to the deep fried cheese curds, they are a health food!).

To top that off, we walked about 8 miles at the fair (over 16,000 steps!). It also the first time that my fair experience wasn't all about food and it was one of my best fair visits ever!

Gee....old dogs can learn new tricks!

    That's AMAZING! Good for you! And the walking, to boot! I'd say a great day all around. I'm from the DEEP south, but fried foods have never really been my thing. Butter/sugar/eggs - that's my weakness. Bring on the corn puddin' and pecan pie!

But I must say 'fried pickles' sounds horrible. But, they must be a real treat since so many people are salivating at the thought of them. emoticon emoticon

Slow and steady.....

Another weigh in with a 1/2 pound loss and I couldn't be happier. I've lost 10 pounds as of today!!!!!! That was my first medium sized goal and I'm so happy and so proud!!

Next in line is to hit 10% weight loss (only 6 more pounds for that)!!

Now if I can just keep this motivation going this weekend......Minnesota State Fair tomorrow. That means lots o' deep-fried things on sticks!
