Thinking of Vlogging...

Monday, September 28, 2009

So I just got a webcam and I am thinking that I might start vlogging on SP maybe even youtube...

I'd thought of it before I got the cam...just not really sure how to go about it. What name to use...Where to film...What to film...
What angle...ya know!

any ideas? suggestions? emoticon

    My daughter simply enjoys YouTube and it has truly encouraged and motivated her on her weight loss journey. So I say YouTube - visit... are you doing it as a weight loss journal? If so, visit YouTube and check out some of the other popular vlogs! Best to you on this pursuit!

    Hey, I'm looking forward to the Harvest of Good Habits challenge too. I hope we'll both see excellent results... we should do if we keep ourselves focused. I made a new shake today and LOVED it. I took 1 medium apple, 4 ice cubes, a little water, HMR 800 vanilla shake and a few shakes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and apple pie spice. I blended it together and YUM... it tasted like a creamy apple treat... almost like apple pie with real vanilla ice cream on top. I think I'll name the shake... Apple Pie A-la-mode :-) Have you tried anything new lately? I'm always looking for ways to spice up this HMR stuff

How would you Describe What High School Was Like For You?

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

In High School, I was smaller, healtier & involved in many activities!

Do you remember High School? What was it like for you? I recently entered a contest with, using my Prom Picture. They are promoting Glee a musical comedy television series that airs on Fox.

Although I'm hoping to win by having the most votes by Thursday by afternoon, this contest has given me another look at what my body looked like and the person that I was back then.

When my parents voted and left a comment he said, "You look so happy in this picture & have a nice smile in the picture".
These comments made me smile...and became a bit of motivation for me...why?
Well, I'm not always so happy now a days, I used to be involved in things at school and outside of school that reflected what I enjoyed in my heart...I don't do that so much anymore!

I've read articles on SP about stress and other factors outside of what we eat, and how they effect our weight. And yes, I need to be motivated again! I need to be happier again... And trust me everything as a teen wasn't perfect, but I sure could learn a few things from the me that was in H.S.!!!!!!

Here, look at the picture that my dad spoke of and let me I look happy?

If you matter what you looked like, post a picture of yourself from H.S. and blog it. What would the H.S. You say to the Now You?

Love you all SP !!!!!!!

That's enough of that emoticon

In high school, I was all into performing arts. I was in the choir, Madrigal Choir, and I loved-loved-loved to read. I was into acting, too

Any chance to shine, I was there!

    I enjoyed high school. I met my best friend Julie, in geometry class our sophmore year. We were both fairly new to the school. Our senior year we had every class together but orchestra.

I have gotten back to one of my favorite things from high school - playing my cello.
I am playing in a string quartet and a community orchestra and really enjoy it. The friends I have made have been supportive as I regain my health.

Have you ever watched the show Ruby? The emphasis that they place on her early years and her weight is interesting.

I don't know if I agree completely...but....

Also sorry about high school...

    I didn't really like high school. I wasn't popular, and I was kind of heavy, and back then it wasn't nearly as acceptable as it is today. In some ways I think it's terrible how the younger heavy girls dress with their fat all hanging out everywhere, but in some ways I really admire them. It makes for a healthier self-image to embrace it.

I voted for you today, and I will try to vote for you tomorrow too.

I just watched 17Again yesterday. I love movies where people go forward or backward in time knowing what they know now. Like Peggy Sue Got Married, 13 Going On 30, and Big.

I would have fun going back to high school now, knowing all that I know now.

It is a great picture! You really do look very happy.

I LOVE your user name!

Peace and Prayers,

APOLOGY: Will You Take Some Time To HELP a SP Friend, With A Vote?

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

This is me at my senior prom in 1992.

SP friends, please forgive me, I misread/misunderstund one of our SP rules.
First I want to say thanks to those who have voted for me in the MyFox11 "Spread the GLEE Contest".

But it was brought to my attention that I went against one of the rules. So I apologize for the that misunderstanding. It was recommended that I post the contest by another SP member, & I was so excited that I didn't see where I couldn't.

But it did get me to think about something that's been on my mind! What was H.S. like for you and what could we apply to ooour lives from that time!

Well, again I want to apologize for offening anyone and to SP for misunderstanding the rules, by asking for votes on a contest!
Thanks again to those who did, I appreciate it.
And please note that I have replaced the blog in question with this apology one! I have also sent this same info via email to my team and the SP member who informed me of my mistake.

with SP love,

But I'm glad it got you to pull out your yearbook! I think that's great!

Retiring my old page to revise my plan!

Wednesday, August 05, 2009

Waving bye-bye as I need to revise my whole plan. So I'm retiring my old page & putting it here so I can redo it all!

WELCOME TO MY PAGE!!! "Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. " ~3 John 1:2 (NIV)

I'm here like many, in the pursuit of loosing weight, getting healthy & staying active! I have lost and gained weight while on SP, but hands down, I'm still here because I enjoy the motivation, inspiration, support and accountability.
SUMMER 2009:
Let's see, I would like to do a detox/cleansing sometime this summer...maybe in July (my b-day month)! I take so many medications that it would be a good thing I believe, although I don't know how affective it'll be since I still have to take the meds.

The summer pretty much consists of 2 full months so as June ends I'll prepare for a sunshining healthier July and August!

If anyone has suggestions on weight loss things that work for those with Hypothyroidism, Edema, and Congestive Heart Failure to name a few...please share!

So now my goals are to try to be at my Goal Weight of 130lbs by Easter of 2011 and not 2010! That's a BIG step for me. And being on SP is a great place to continue to see where I've been, how I'm doing and where I'm going!!! Because I am going forward, in God's time and in an uplifting more confident and healthy vessel! (04/17/09)

Thanks to all of you who stop by and leave a bit of love on my page! Sometimes it takes me a lil while to get back to you, so I want to say THANKS in advance. All the best for each and everyone of you!
"I praise Him because I am Fearfully and Wonderfully Made By GOD!"

Stay Positive While Living in God's Blessings,
Favor & Will!

    Thanks so much for your words, SP friends.
I'm glad to be an inspiration for anyone, as I am often inspired on SP!

You know I weighed in at 226.2 when I wrote this blog yesterday and just a day later I'm at 220 lbs & still have visable edema in my legs & feet! The edema causes me to gain and lose large amounts within a day or two...yet always holding on to painful (like my joints actually hurt because of the rapid weight gain) pounds, making it hard to truly LOSE real weight! Things can be painfully frustrating, so I'm glad to come on here and read your comments so far...what an uplifting blessing!!!!!
