Day 14-193

Tuesday, April 22, 2008

Well, I am on Day 14 working toward the second part of my first year as a SPARKER, so I'm happy. Signed in every single day for 193 days, but this is a new phase, like my second wind, or shifting to second gear now. I've lost 30# so far and SPONDULEX my inner brat tells me that I could have lost 60# and I haven't done nearly as good as I SHOULD have. I know not to listen to SPONDULEX and "Shoulds" don't mean anything. They just cause us to "Should all over ourselves." So, I will look toward my October 12th goal and not "Should all over myself" anymore. emoticon

    You deserve a emoticon for your 30 pound weight loss! That's a lot of weight GONE, and nothing to sneeze at. Don't let others guilt you into feeling you're not doing enough. It's your body, and you are making substantial changes that you can LIVE with! emoticon

    You tell Spondulux that Happy Bunny says "Cram it". Sparkpeople says you should lose 1-2 pounds a week. You lost 1 pound a week (like I did, more or less), which is fairly amazing considering metabolic syndrome and our age. You've logged in every day, and you always have an encouraging world. Have a WONDERFUL Mother's Day! emoticon

    I just read the comment you left on the article about Optimism and the Power of Positive Thinking, where you told your sons to visualize the men they would be at the age of 50. That is one of the most insightful and powerful things I've read in a long time, and I want to send it to my own son who is currently 28...thanks, Jibbie, for hanging in there in your battle, and for being an encouragement to the rest of us along the way. Great job!!

    Oh I just love your sense of humor! Mr. Walks...hehehe I wonder if his Samurai self could quell or conquer Lady Tigra and Sir Pouncelot...mmm, Pounce maybe, he's such a jumpy one on all levels, but I think he might meet his match with Tigra The Terrible!
    emoticon emoticon emoticon and emoticon on your weight loss! That is just SPECTACULOR! Tell bratty SPONDULEX (intriguing, wonder what the story is behind that) to eat a dirty sock and shush up! None of us should ever be caught shoulding on ourselves, not even in private! I'm scribing to your blog! You're definately someone I want to know!

    Hugsamillion, hope you have a totally awesome night! (valley girl twang)

    Congrates on the 30lbs so far thats awsome and tell "SPONDULEX" to shut it :) You could have not done anything and gained the typical 2.5 lbs the average person gains every half a year. the way I figure it you lost 30 but really your down like 33lbs so keep up the great work and thanks for visiting my blog I am Subbed to yours now for sure.
