A new month

Friday, August 01, 2008

Well, part of doing the MiniBlog challenge is to blog weekly so here goes.

In reading Blogs of other Goonies I am inspired, gladdened and sometimes saddened. I am so happy to read about others losing weight and gaining self-confidence. I am saddened when I read about the struggles with weight since I have struggled all my life.

I am having a good day in spite of a headache that got me out of bed after only 6 hours sleep. Darn, have to start that streak all over again. **yes, the headache is gone now**

Spark People in general and The Goonies in particular has helped me in ways I can't really explain. Since I let go and started using the SP tools my life has just gotten so much easier.

I found the Goonies when I saw a comment by Chuckster63 on another members SparkPage and checked him out. Well, I joined the Goonies immediately, and have been just so overwhelmed with joy that I thanked the other member only to learn she wasn't a member. Long story short, she is now!

My DH sees the difference in me since joining SP & the Goonies and I thank y'all for that. My chosen image is for my next goal weight of 165.

    I know what you mean, I feel the same way about the Goonies. I got an invitation from Chunk a few day after joining SP. It was a very motivating message I wanted to join straight away & I'm glad I did. Thank you for welcoming me to the team & the comment on my blog too. I'm sorry I didn't thank you earlier.

    Thank you so much for the kind message you left on my page.

    I love The Goonies, I was so touched that they sent me an invitaion to join within an hour of signing up on SP. The other teams I joined aren't even close to being as supportive! I am glad you have joined us.

    I joined the goonies after I saw Chunk was voted top leader. Good luck on meeting your goal!
