Yesterday goes down in the history books, a red letter day in history....
This will definitely shock my momma, and this may come as quite a shock to my fellow sparkers I actually ate canned green peas - REALLY.
I have detested canned peas all my life, I love frozen peas, but ICKnay on the Easpay, I'm also quite fluent in pig latin
Last night hubby made dinner (thanks honey). We had boneless porkchops, twiced baked potatos, fresh italian bread and then he put a bowl of yucky green peas right next to me. I normally turn my nose up at peas, but last night I decided to try just a spoonful, and to my surprise, a spoonful turned into a 1/4 cup.
I can't believe it - I ATE CANNED PEAS, that's one for the record books, my momma will be so proud when I tell her.

Sheesh, where do I begin. I feel like so much is piled on to do and just not enough hours in the day. It's way too early in the month to be stressin. I just have to make a list and put things in priority order. Do what I can today, then just keep checking things off the list. The list is long. I just keep telling myself, one thing at a time, slow down, breathe, all things will fall into place.
It's all about priorities, hoping I can take my own advice and just do a little at the time.
How do my fellow SP buddies handle stress? I need a magic formula QUICK.

Just wanted to share some super news with all my buds. I have been selected to be in FIRST women's magazine, hitting the newstands on January 28, 2011. I will not be the feature story, just a small sidebar featuring a before and after pic and a few brief words about weight loss. I am so honored to have been selected for this opportunity, I am hoping they will give a shout out to SPARKPEOPLE, since that is how I have managed to accomplish my goals. I certainly mentioned SPARK, almost every other word during my interview - Yeah for SPARK !!!!!
They are providing a hair stylist, makeup artist and a personal stylist who will be bringing me clothes to wear during my 3 hour photo shoot. That's next sunday. I can't explain how excited I am.
I truly believe this opportunity is the "icing on the cake" for me. I've been working so hard and it finally seems like there is light at the end of the tunnel. This is just what I need to push me over the top to finally reach the 100-pound loss mark, only 4 to go.
When I read magazines and see someone's weight loss story, I am truly inspired that they can accomplish such great things. I am hoping someone sees my picture, and it offers them HOPE, that weight loss is achieveable and that it will inspire them. It's all about helping others and I truly believe that we all need to be in the mindset.... "If she can do it, so can I". It is possible guys... hard work, patience and perserverance. So happy that I've made it this far.
Keep on SPARKING yall, we can do this !!!!!!

I'm checking out of 150-ville, stepped on the scale yesterday and WOO HOO. So happy to be on the way out of the 150's, just a smigeon more to go. Look out 140's here I come. I was so happy to see 1 - 5 - 0 - you would have thought I won the lottery all that yelling and jumping up and down. Yes I know it says 150.8 but all I care about is the first three numbers - the BIG ONE FIVE OHHHHHH. Only 4 to go for the "GOLD". What a great way to start Thanksgiving week, I will definitely be sure not to tip the scale past 150 this week, wanna see 1 - 4 - 9 when I return home.
Happy Thanksgiving to my SP buddies, heading to the hills of WV. Couldn't have made it this far without you all, and for that, I AM THANKFUL.
