Hi all! I hope this finds you all well. Life has just been running me ragged lately but I got a spark message from a old team I was on and it made me all at once miss SparkPeople and the support I found here.

I've been doing WW since the end of Jan. and had lost 20 lbs. I gained 4 lbs back at this last weigh in but my average before that was about a lb a week. With all I have going on, I was quite happy.

I've been working 40+ hrs a week and taking college classes. Dustin (my hubby) still has a ton of health needs but those aren't going anywhere so I'm back and using sparkpeople for support and encouragement.

I want to thank everyone for these messages and little comments on my sparkpage. Even though I wasn't active, I still read every one. Now I'm ready to get my butt in gear!!

Spark Break

Sunday, August 10, 2008

Hi to all,

I'm sending this messge with a heavy heart. I have decided to take a spark break. I have just too much on my plate right now. I recently started a new job and am taking a couple of college classes next month. I'm trying to get things in order and with my husband's health needs, it's just too much all at once.

I promise I will be back as soon as I am able.

emoticon for all your support along the way. You guys are the best!!!

emoticon emoticon for now!

Good luck with the spark break. I hope every thing slows down for you soon. Take care and good luck with the classes and the new job. We will miss you but will see you when you return.

Life seems to keep on happening around me whether I'm ready or not. I'm stepping out of my comfort zones and doing things I never thought I would. I'm excited yet I'm SCARED. Scared to step out onto the cliff and see what happens. Scared to do something new. I've been doing the same things for many years now. And now I have the opportunity to do something I thought was far out of my reach. Instead I find it right in front of me and I can grasp it or let the fears override and hold me back.

I'm going to GRASP it. I'm going to step out on the ledge on faith. It's not easy. It's not easy to let go of those things that have made me and molded me and step into the world unknown.

I've got to do what is best for me and my hubby. No one can stop me but myself. I'm not going to let that happen. I'm going to do what I need to do and stop worrying what others are going to think about my decisions. They are MINE to make.

I am a strong woman.

    Well now I'm totally curious. What decisions have you made. It sounds exciting.

    I'm with you there on the fear. I always remember a book I read where the author commented about how any time she had to let go of something from her safety zone, there were claw marks left where she'd done so :-) I think it's natural to try to hang on, to be afraid.

Someone Noticed!!

Monday, May 19, 2008

I went to our mother/daughter banquet Saturday night at my church.

One of the ladies who attends our church but had been away for the winter was there and she said "You're looking slim." I told her I was trying and she asked how much I had lost.

I was SOOOOOO excited that someone noticed my measley 13.6 lbs loss!

    Congratulations on 13.6 pounds gone. Every ounce I lose I jump up and down about. The noticing is a great motivator too. Even if people don't notice it on me I can FEEL the difference and that keeps me going as well. Keep up the great work Sasha.
