Thanks Spark Friends

Monday, August 16, 2010

I want all of you to know how much you mean to me. My daughter got me on SP even though I was maintaining. I thought what would I do on a weight loss group when I am maintaining . Well, let me tell you....I have met some of the nicest people here. No matter whether your problem is big or small, there is always someone to talk with and for you to let them know how you feel. I see blogs where people are so down and lost and they let Spark friends know and immediately "help" is on the way. You hear back from them how much they were helped by the messages of encouragement sent to them and that they were not alone. There is also good things written about......success stories, how well someone is doing being on Spark and doing the challenges. I am a Lifetime WW for about 9 years but decided when I got on SP that I wanted to lower my goal another 6 pounds. I did that, thanks to the motivation here. As some of you know, the scale is my motivator but I like counting SP as my motivator too. I want to do good to write about it and to let everyone know it can be done. There are some amazing stories here about the weight loss journey of so many Spark friends . emoticon Nancy

    Very nice blog! I am SOOO happy you joined when I visited at Easter (well, you joined last year because I asked you too, but actually started using the site on Easter weekend).

The people here are AMAZING! I am so happy I found it and I look forward to being here everyday.

I'm glad you are enjoying it so much!

    You got that right. Spark People Friends are the best friends in the entire world. I can't tell you how much encouragement, words of wisdom, help of any kind that I have received on this site. I am glad that it has been just as good for you. emoticon

    You hit it right spot on. The people on spark are all nice, but these Ruby teams are beyond special. And when they say they care, it is not just words, they mean it. I love it here.

    Nancy,
SP is a lot more than a weight loss site...the people are so kind, giving & encouraging. I met my goal with SP 4 months ago, but I'm still on here every day. I need the friends I have on this site; they are just wonderful! Like you, my new friend! I'm very grateful for all of the people on this site!

Hugs
Teresa

    I just love it here.. I get the support and motivation that I have never gotten before... I love all the friendships that are formed here and the teams.. I agree this is the place to be if you need friends... SP friends are going through or have gone through or will be going through the same things as us and thats a wonderful bond..

I can't Believe It

Sunday, August 15, 2010

It has been so hot and humid today. It is almost 7:00 pm and the temperature is still 92. I don't know why I can't believe it because it has been like this for weeks. I guess my disbelief is that it is still a hot streak.......Have a good evening everyone.

    We only hit m90 today so I thought about putting a jacket on. LOL I don't wear a coat until the first snow flies. But this summer has been terribly hot here too.

    We just got a break from that sort of heat after a few weeks of it. Yesterday it only got up to 92. Today was in the mid 80's. It felt wonderful!

Update on appliances

Sunday, August 15, 2010

So many of you commented on my blog yesterday regarding "oiled bronze appliances". At the present time Jennair is the only company that has that color. It came out in 2008 but didn't really catch on. Yesterday we went to an very large appliance center in Raleigh, NC. They had on display a wall oven in that color. However, Jennair is coming out with a "new" oiled bronze this year that is slightly different from the previous. It kind of looks like a wood grain bronze and is a slightly darker color. I am thinking that it might do the trick. AND, GE has a new color called Champagne that I really like. The problem with that is, it only comes in a washer/dryer. I guess they bring it out in w/d because then if people like it, they can bring the color into all of their appliances without wasting money on complete kitchens of appliances if no one likes the color. I would definitely go with the champagne if I could get it in all appliances. I have checked with centers and they say nothing coming in the next year except White, Stainless, and black. I guess I am back where I started.

    Did you like it as much after you actually saw it in person?

    At least Jennair is coming out with what you can use soon. GE seems to be more of an uncertain thing. But by the time you are ready,GE may also have what you want. Good luck! emoticon

APPLIANCES

Saturday, August 14, 2010

Has anyone seen the appliance color "oiled bronze". I know Jennair makes it, but have been having a hard time finding it. It is like the stainless steel color but not "gray", it is a bronze color kind of like copper. We will be replacing appliances in our new house when we move, and I am not that crazy about white, black, or stainless steel.

    well I would really be interested in seeing this.. I'm with you I'm not a fan of stainless steel.. how can they even call it that when its a pain to keep looking nice.. try Sears, Lowes, Homedepot. and maybe any local home improvment stores in your area.. It would really be worth finding and comparing the prices..

Back from Al's

Friday, August 13, 2010

Yesterday, I wrote that we were going to Al's. That is my brother in VA. It was a really quick trip because all we did was take a poker table to him that we aren't moving to our new home. He fixed us a delicious dinner.......seafood boil.....it had sausage, corn, baby potatoes, tiger shrimp, king crab legs, and lobster tails. It was so good. I had a little of all of it, but not too much. He is an excellent cook and loves to do it. We got up early this morning and headed home. WE are both really tires because it was a six hour drive yesterday and then again today. I love my brother, but am glad to be back home. I really like being home and prefer not to travel anywhere.
