How Spark People is having an effect on my dreams.

Saturday, August 25, 2012

It's amazing how diet and excercise change your life, but your dreams? I woke up this morning and was reflecting on my dreams from this past night's sleep. I remember waking up and realizing that I had dreams about excercising. What a change from before. I can never remember dreaming about excercise. I guess that excercise has become a part of my life and I can't even get away from it for the night. Sweet dreams Spark People. emoticon

Why do they call it a service call?

Friday, August 24, 2012

I wonder these days why plumbers, electricians, cable providers, A/C techs, internet and phone companies call themselves service providers when they can't get to your house when scheduled, can't answer your questions on the phone or don't speak English? Then they can't understand when you are mad with their service and yell and sometimes cuss. I say if you call yourself a service provider, then provide a service. Don't get me started on long waits at the Dr and Dentist offices.

    I always took it to be referencing the naughty definition of 'servicing' - which when you think about it - it actually what they do.

emoticon Another pound lost. Don't you think SP is so amazing? I have never had an easier time losing weight and feeling in control. Tracking food and excercise makes a big difference. The feedback is great too. Great big emoticon to all my Spark Buddies who have been so supportive.

    Congratulations! I love that we all find our way to make it work... and if it's not working, we've made enough friends along the way to stick around and give it another try.

Previously, I only ever lost weight when something was wrong; at minimum I was unemployed. The weight crept back on because I hadn't really changed my habits. I lost 65 pounds in 18 months of stress a few years ago, and it came back at about 2 lbs per month. (Which was kind of a good deal, considering I ate whatever I wanted and did NO exercise!)

This way is so much better, and now I can look at ads for prescription drugs, personal mobility scooters, fad diets and "As seen on TV" exercise equipment and think "NO, never!".

    emoticon on the pound that went out the window!

Yup, I agree; the support truly is great!! And the trackers? Fantastic... especially when you really study those reports the tracking generates.

I'm not only older, I'm better.

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Yes, today is my birthday and I am not only a year older, I feel much better because of SP.
I started this journey in April and have shed 26 lbs, so I feel better this birthday than last. I was helping my daughter move yesterday and felt much stronger, not to mention younger. It's a great day to be a Spark Person.

I am so beat.......

Friday, August 17, 2012

So today my daughter is moving from a 3 floor condo to a 3 floor house. Oh the steps. My husband and I loaded boxes in our car and SUV and carried them from the third floor of the condo up the stairs to the third floor of the house. I got plenty of excercise points today because of it. Now it's tme to relax, but oh no that is not going to happen. We have a contractor that is redoing our bathroom and he left our house this morning at 1:00 am and came back at 9:20 pm. I think I will pull my hair out if he stays that late again tonight. My husband is giving me a new pedometer for my birthday and he is a stickler for not giving gifts before your special day, so I didn't have it today for the move. I will get tomorrow though.
