Yay SP Convention!

Sunday, May 03, 2009



I have to go to bed, but here are a couple of highlights from the convention:

~Met with lots of WONDERFUL SparkiFriends, new and old!!

~A handful of COOL ladies said they were going to join the Done team. ;)

~My phone call from the Unemployment office came at 10:10!! THANK GOODNESS! We didn't start the videos/presentations until 10:30. The call forwarding worked!

~The Spark Team (SparkGuy Chris, Coach Nicole, Dietician Becky, etc. were really awesome.)

~I **WON** a copy of the forthcoming Spark book!

~I picked up a Sport Tech SparkPeople shirt, they were out of XL so I got L (unisex sizing), AND GUESS WHAT?!?! It fits! It's my FIRST Large size shirt!



~The presentation and Q&A went okay! :) Everyone in the audience was really supportive, so it was fun to talk in front of them! (And LILHLFPINT took pictures of me up on stage, and I'm so EXCITED to have copies!)

..Thanks to everyone that came up and said "Hi!" to me, and for everyone that signed my autograph book! I wish I could've met even more people that were there! Plus, I'm such a dope because I didn't even give away all of my Goodie cards! EEk! (Got them out late.)

I'll post more later! :D

    Brilliant solution to the unemployment dilemma - I was worried about that and then accidentally unsubscribed from your blog like a fool (resubscribing now). The convention sounds like a blast! I'm definitely going to the one next year.

    I just wanted to tell you how inspired I was by your talk at the Convention - you are doing great and it helps so many other people to be motivated to do what you are doing!!

Also, thanks for being so vulnerable in the talk from Cheryl Richardson. It must have been tough to talk about your struggle, and I hope her advice helps you out. It helped so many of us in the audience to deal with our own issues of negative people in our lives.

You go, girl!! emoticon

    I was so thrilled to meet you at the Spark Convention! And I had no idea at the time that you were going to be a presenter! You were great!
I too, didn't hand out all my spark goodie cards and wished I could have taken time to meet many more Sparkers. All in all, I would say the 1st Sparkpeople Convention was fabulous!
P.S. if the photo you took of me spinning the spark wheel came out and you remember who I am amidst all of your new Spark friends, would you email me? msmack55@yahoo.com

Sounds like you had a blast at the convention- I so wish I could have gone and met you.

Come check out the Pics on my blog for May 2cnd it was an awesome day.
Today Not so good, My husband contracted food poisoning. I have been at the hospital since 4:00am this morning and we just got back he's resting comfortably now that the Doctor prescribed him medication and is asleep finally. But other than that I am spreading the spark handing out flyers and business cards tomorrow I am ready for this and I want to be part of the success and team. I love you guys and I thank you for your motivational speech. I know I've said it before but I am just touched by your perseverance
and above all your strength. You are a terrific lady and I am blessed to have met you and have you in my life to be able to talk to. emoticon

    Hey Girl! It was great to meet you and I just have to say that you did an awesome job on stage! You all did. It was truly inspiring.

A size L shirt!!! Totally cool.

and ps...Laura Richardson was ON TARGET. It takes time and its hard to do, but in order to stay moving in the right direction we have to stand up for ourselves. Learning to speak our truth is so important. Don't be like me and wait until you're 50 to do that. It was so liberating for me. And, guess what, people will still love you.

...Pre Convention...

Friday, May 01, 2009

I picked up Dana (ZIRCADIA) in the Gaslamp Quarter and we headed over for a quick stop at Gary's (KSIGMA1222) townhouse. It was an awesome rental, with fabulous views, but we couldn't stay long.

We headed over to the convention center and found Debbie (S318830) and Stacey (STACEY-P) and waited for Jenny to come out to lead us to the Exhibition Room. When we got there, lots of my Spark San Diego team friends & other convention volunteers were waiting, along with the fifth speaker, Leah (SPRING4FAL). We got to meet SparkGuy Chris Downie, Coach Nicole, Dietician Becky, as well as a few behind the scenes folks. They are all very sweet and genuine people!

We looked over the goodies for sale and took a PRE-spin on the REAL LIFE SparkPoints wheel (but it didn't count for anything! LOL!) All in all, it was fun, and I'm really looking forward to tomorrow. Lots of SparkPeople went back to Gary's townhouse to party on down, but I had to come home to prepare and run errands (and be with my husband-hehehee.)

Jenny is being really understanding about my Unemployment call tomorrow, and we ran through a few scenarios in case I happen to get it RIGHT WHEN I'M SUPPOSED TO BE SPEAKING. I'm still nervous about that. OH YEAH, and I need to figure out what I'm going to say after my video. :S Eek. EHheheehee.

Here are some quick pictures... I can't wait to meet you tomorrow!!!








(It had landed on 100, ALLLLLLLLLmost going over to the 25 points. When I was posing it turns out it flipped over to 25, and this picture captures where everyone is gasping and pointing that it's 25. I'm completely oblivious! LOLOLOL!!)

10 pounds one month-My goal

Monday, April 27, 2009

When I first started losing weight it seemed so easy! I was determined to change my lifestyle, and I did! I was determined to be consistent in my workouts and I was!

Today I had crazy weird cravings out of the blue (maybe related to monthly happenings), and I indulged them. I'm not crying over the chocolate trail mix, candy, nachos, chips, and soda... (except for my tummy hurting)... I'm just reconfirming that this is not how I want to eat.

By my next birthday - June 30th - I want to lose 10 pounds. I used to lose weight at that rate when I first started. And in order to do that now, I need to be serious about tracking my foods, eating the right amounts, and getting those workouts in.

This new goal couldn't come at a better time; my Census job is done, I need to look for work, I'm scared about the future, submitting resumes; lots of stress, and a great time to refocus on changing the things I CAN change: those habits.

(My husband keeps saying how skinny I'm getting... I confess that even in the comparison picture from my last blog I BARELY SEE A DIFFERENCE. I know it's my eyes that I can't trust. But I made huge strides today by wearing my "W" skinny shirt that shows my arms at the Park. I'll upload pics later.)

    Best of Luck! You can absolutely do it.

I get the not seeing it thing. I was watching Biggest Loser last night and they were showing them before and after and it was amazing. Watching them each week I'd forgotten how much they had changed. I haven't been seeing the change in myself lately and so I decided to go to the mirror and have a closer look. And wow, I really am a different person. Sometimes it takes an extra look to see.

You are looking fantastic and even when you don't see it, the rest of us do.

Good luck on the job front to. Keep your head up and keep moving forward and things will work out.

    Hey Joce, kudos for wearing your skinny shirt to the park. You look great, but sometimes it just a while for our mind to catch up with our bodies. And your goal is awesome, hopefully it will help you kick it into gear. The weight doesn't come off as it once used to and some days we just don't feel like working any harder.

Any weight loss is a step in the right direction (I have to remind myself of that often). I bet the next 20 pounds makes even more of an impact the last 20 did. It really did for me.

Best of luck on the job search. Maybe you will end up with a better job than you had. Life works like that sometimes.

That is a great goal and I am sure you will accomplish it with no problem. Your weight loss is truely amazing. Keep up the hardwork and dedication. Totally know about making bad food choices. I do not burn 4000 calories a week. I need to type in what I really burn from my watch. I burn about 300-400 a workout.

Have a healthy day,

  You are doing great! I love seeing your photos -- there is a definite change in the before and afters!

You may have addressed this question before but is your skin shrinking with your body? Does that make sense? LOL I ask because you look..proportionate in your weight loss - as if it's coming off evenly all over and not in spots -- know what I am trying to say here? haha my belly is starting to sag (not that it didn't before but it seemed to be an overall 'roll' before haha) and so are my underarms but yours look great! emoticon

She was afraid to come out of the locker
She was as nervous as she could be
She was afraid to come out of the locker
She was afraid that somebody would see
Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore

It was an itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today
An itsy, bitsy, teentie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
So in the locker she wanted to stay
Two, three, four, stick around we'll tell you more

She was afraid to come out in the open
And so a blanket around she wore
She was afraid to come out in the open
And so she sat bundled up on the shore
Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore

It was an itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today
An itsy, bitsy, teentie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
So in the blanket she wanted to stay
Two, three, four, stick around we'll tell you more

Now she's afraid to come out of the water
And I wonder what she's gonna do
Now she's afraid to come out of the water
And the poor little girl's turning blue
Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore

It was an itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today
An itsy, bitsy, teentie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
So in the water she wanted to stay
(From the locker to the blanket)
(From the blanket to the shore)
(From the shore to the water)
Yes, there isn't any more...but look at WOLFKITTY, a hottie she will be for ever more!!! Woohoo!!!!

101 Degrees & Walking

Monday, April 20, 2009

Oh goodness!

My husband called me in a panic today. I had been working for about 6 HOURS (walking door to door for the Census) when he asked if I was okay. Apparently the high was 101 degrees today in my town. Um, yeah, maybe that explains why I went through over a gallon of water in a few hours, and why it was so hot.

Still walked 9 miles today so far. I'm going to keep the pedometer on so that I can see my total for the day. Whew!! Luckily I don't have to do any more today.

I'm torn between wanting more hours (especially in light of not being paid by UI) and being so over the assignment. Maybe the next leg of this "adventure" will be better.

Today I saw a passed out guy sleeping on the sidewalk. (I hope he wasn't dead.) Yay.. Actually, I'll have to write a whole blog about all the strange things I've seen and felt in the past 3 weeks.

    Yeah I woke up this morning, turned on my computer and saw it said 86 degrees (in North Park) and was like "uh...yeah, I'm going back to bed" I was supposed to go for a jog. Kudos for not being as lazy as I was today! :)

    What a sweetie for calling and checking on you!
I'm glad you got in all that water along with all that walking.
Will be keeping my fingers crossed that the Convention/EDD Call works itself out.

    Whew- I thought I was hot with 4 miles on 90 degrees today- you had me beat!
Make sure you're drinking plenty of water while doing all that walking- I'd hate to hear you got sick from it.

  Be careful in that kind of heat when I was in Central america I got dehydrated and that is crazy because I as drinking all day but, in the 100's your sweat evaporates so its decieving how much water you are losing! Girl you are a trooper!!!!
