I can see the light!

Wednesday, April 23, 2008

It has been a month since I last created a BLOG entry so I figure now is a good time to get one posted. I'm sitting in Panera Bread using their free WiFi to logon to the Internet. I love Panera Bread. They are great. I had their Fandango salad for dinner and I am contemplating whether or not to get their fruit salad for my evening snack. I need to get some more fruit in so I just might indulge.

My daughter is 15 and she is playing for a club Volleyball team. Her practices run from 7:00 to 10:00 at night. It is too far for me to drive home and then drive back to get her so I use the time to shop, run errands or relax at Starbucks or Panera Bread. I like Panera better than Starbucks because their WiFi is free and Starbucks charges to use theirs. You'd think that after paying the enormous amount of money that they charge for a cup of coffee would buy you a few minutes of WiFi time but nooooo they are too greedy for that. All I can say is you go Panera!

I thank GOD that my daughter is active in sports. I don't want her to go through having a weight problem for most of her life. Life is too short to worry about being fat. I regret it and wish I could turn back the clock but that is impossible as we all know. I am proud of her and I hope she maintains her healthy lifestyle.

Any way I seem to have gotten off track from my BLOG intentions. I wanted to post how I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have lost 21.6 pounds since January. When I first started I wasn't sure I was going to be able to make much of a dent in my weight loss since I have tried so many times before and failed. Now that I have lost over 20 pounds I know that I can do this and that I will do this. I still have a lot to go but I know it is not an easy fix and that I need to be in it for the long haul. I don't feel like I am lost in the dark any more. I am so motivated by reading other SPARKERS SparkPages, Blogs and posts. When I see how successful and dedicated everyone is it makes me want to do the same. I have met a lot of fun, caring and dedicated friends since January and I hope to meet many more as time goes on.

I want to end by saying thank you to everyone that sends me Goodies, posts on my SparkPage and replies to my posts in various topic threads. Your support is appreciated and needed. Keep the Spark!

    Your kids learn from example. So, your new healthy lifestyle will help your daughter to learn how to eat healthy. After her first resistance to leaving the candy land...she will know how to do it right and feel better for it. You have a great goal. Keep up the good work.
