I so appreciate my Spark family! I've been a sparker for almost 4 years and it is amazing how much a part of my life this has become! I spend little time on Facebook, but my SP
has my attention! I am committed to this site as a lifelong member, no matter where my weight is! I am always finding encouragement, good recipes and advice, and most of all, just a place to rest in the storm! Cause that's what this is, a constant battle between what I want to eat, and what is better for my body!!! Today is was a struggle between junk food and some fruit. Thanks to the challenge this week for my Daisies to eat more freggies, I chose the fruit. I needed that extra shove in the right direction and SP provided it, thank you!!! My fellow sparkers are beyond special to me, and I wish you all the very best week ever!!!!!

I guess the tests never quit!! I went on a three-day mini vacation with my hubby to a beautiful place here in the mountains-a little Bavarian town called Leavenworth this last week. We were only gone 3 days, but it was heaven on earth for those three days! First of all, it is a little Alpine town that is set up for tourists-lots of good food, shops, and polka music playing all day!! The food was mainly good comfort food, cause it is cold there! I mean they even had snow for us! (We haven't had much snow this year, and rarely like this!) We drank hot drinks, cold ones were not even available!! There was a little coffee house/bakery called "The Gingerbread Factory" complete with all the fresh cookies, scones, and sweet breads you could dream of-mine was a scone too laden with calories I won't even describe it!! Yes, they sell decorated hand-painted gingerbread houses, and the people there are rosy cheeked and friendly-just plain sweet! We walked the streets and shopped the shops, and ate the food-and I gained 5 lbs.!! So far, one of it has come off, once I got back home to my normal food. But it may take awhile for that other 4, I just have to be patient, and wait, again. But it was so worth it, the time away from normal routine was such a refreshing one ! Being with my hubby without life's hassles thrown in was lovely-I would highly recommend it for everybody!! Now it's time to get back in harness and get that 200 goal met!!!

Life is sometimes so unpredictable. After being in a plateau for over 3 yrs., my weight is finally coning down! I wish I could tell you what happened, what the magic formula was, or how much further down it will go, but alas, a fortune teller I am not!! All I can do is keep doing what I'm doing and keep up the positives!! I'm sure there are good moments and bad ahead, but for now, I am going to praise God for the moment, and cherish the feeling!!! Hope your weekend is one of good memories!!!

I've been invited to my beloved sparkteam, Determined Daisies!! I love it!! This team has been such a positive tool in my hanging on, regardless of this ugly plateau!! The sparkfriends I have made, the camaraderie between the teammates, and the mini-challenges have been so awesome!! This team always has such terrific leaders, and I really appreciate all the hard work and sacrifice they put into making it such a joy for me!! I look forward to meeting new people, being challenged in my weight loss journey, and most of all, competing against other teams and myself as well!! I pray this 8 week challenge will be lifechanging one for me, with a noticeable weight loss to boot!! I will give the team my best, already knowing it will give all its got for me!! Thanks for the invite, and rock on, Daisies!!!!!
