The "DARE" that I set out yesterday at like (Yes, I sooo like used like the word like, like okay...) noon, and still didn't upload after 'like' 7 hours was scrapped.
The 'Coles Notes' of the 'Dare Vlog',
The SP/FB drama left many feeling vulnerable, some annoyed. Even though this site is free (as is air) I expect it to be free of things that will harm me. Taking away more of my control and privacy is harmful.
So, SparkFriends...please do NOT take the liberty of spreading my Spark all over the place. I equate it to gossip which gets distorted and ugly - fast.
Thank you. To spell it out... please FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS HOLY do not link me to forums outside of Spark. I Spark at Spark.

With SparkPeople's Nutrition Tracker, and D.P.F.'s I dropped 60+lbs.
I DARE you to too.
That's it....Simple enuff, eh?
Rogue_Runner our Vlogger Leader started it...it looked like fun and most every Friday even though life sucked (sicks lots and other stuff, now that hubby is a Sparker as of yesterday, I'm not my normal "T.M.I." yet), I got up and boogied.
We pick a song (unless something special comes up...I'm thinking we need themes...), we dance, lipsync, or wiggle to tunes and vlog to share our bit o' joy with our SparkFriends. It helps to make the weekends brighter and gets ya started moving that little bit and it's fun!!!
I SOOOO DARE you to try it out. Who knows maybe you'll knock off 'like' 60+lbs in 'like' 8 months too....
Added Bonus to today's vlog a "Retro Word of the Day": Like, I bet you'll never guess it!
VLOGGER TEAM should you feel like playing with us.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A VLOGGER TEAM MEMBER TO PLAY. No, you do not.

"Itís easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission."~Rear Admiral Grace Hopper.
...Kinda like a rapist.
Day one the anonymity of Spark was the safety I needed to battle the demons that choked my confidence that stole my spirit that suffocated my voice. The voice that told me I was worth it. The voice that tells me I am worth hanging on one more day and not quitting on myself. The voice that helps me not abuse myself with food.
If youíve never been pressed in a corner and violated you canít appreciate the feeling of being absolutely powerless, fragile, obsolete, worthless, terrified, and devastated.
Yesterday, in one ambitious marketing action, my place of refuge disappeared. Marketing took precedence over me.
I have thrived, found victory and excellent friends here. I will not be able to maintain as well without. However, no one forces me in a corner and tells me to figure out the escape. Thatís what it felt like when my anonymity was compromised. It was compromised when SparkPeople took the marketing strategy of throwing Facebook links on my information. Shoving the invitation at my visitors and guests to take me over. I am NOT for Ďsaleí. My Spark is mine to spread in this Spark forum. Not Facebook and not Plenty of Fish or any other forums that someone deems marketable. I do not appreciate being treated like a cheap novelty.
I feel violated. I feel cheap. I feel used.
I feel I need to leave. Although, I have not made my decision. I have a severe flight response when I feel vulnerable.
My trust has been severely compromised. I needed the anonymity to work through serious issues and collect support from my peers without the risk of my children or relatives learning of them. Yes, I have the feature disabled. However, the principle remains the same; who does first and asks permission later? Bullies...
Do not back Baby in a corner. Know what else is free? Air. I expect it to be free of things that could interfere with me operating smoothly as well.
To Disable Facebook embedding:

Uncheck the box beside, "Show share bar on my blog posts"
and it will disable this feature.

DaNcE PaRtY FrIdAy is a dare that was set out by Vlogger Leader, ROGUE_RUNNER . We lipsync, boogy, or just chillax to kick off the weekend in a vlog and share with our SparkFriends. I enjoy having fun that is not fixated on fitness or food. It helps me keep some sparkle!
TYLIGHTWUNDER her daughter and my daughter joined us today.
My sister picked the song. She knows this one drives me nuts. Little sisters are fun...
I can't watch this video by LMFAO it makes me laugh so bad it splits my gut.
Good way to start off a weekend and send the cr@ppy pain filled week packin'. Don't ask Connie about the dye job my stylist gave her...just dwell on the hair style...then my stylist may live.

I read a blog by a fellow Sparker. A Sparker that was insanely organized. Do I remember her name? No. Did I friend her? No. I was too shy and it was at the beginning of my journey and I felt I did not have that liberty. Wow, I was SO ignorant of the Spark Community. Friend EVERYBODY already! That's what we're here for. Then when you go to share the stuff you used and loved you won't be in my shoes feeling like a moron. Just sayin'
I loved this chart link that she shared. I have yet to make my collage thingy that Chris Downie says to. I really would end up making a Sistene Chapel Mural in my Living Room so the whole process says trouble to me. I use my Spark Page to Motivate me, which is why we're losing the Christmas Bling thing, like today I think. I need my mojo back. Is mojo the right word? I dunno. My daughter's Bengal cat is trying to take me out with its 4:30 a.m. trampoline exercises on my abdomen and I'm incoherent. Java, so not over rated.
The Hotty Thermometer (as I have dubbed it) I introduced once in a vlog, is completed and then some. I started it as I was already on my journey as some incentive. I'm a visual girl. Comic Books were invented FOR ME. Video games FOR ME. Videochat FOR ME. Vlogging FOR ME. Packaging FOR ME. I was going to start listing hotty men here but, I don't think I should start my morning off distracted.....okay,
I should really think about coffee before blogging....
So, I needed to have something that wasn't going to distract me, but, keep me motivated and this little chart was THE PERFECT aide. I hung it on my fridge until I completed it. I remember thinking when I filled it all out what a pipedream I was setting myself up for. HA!! Today I stand having surpassed that initial goal to get to the tippy-top of my Healthy B.M.I. right into my Healthy B.M.I. Range.

Those goals are long since past...
Today I am 158lbs...62lbs lost with SparkPeople.
