Tuesday, July 13, 2010

I came upon Sparkpeople via the show, Ruby, aired on the Style Channel; I was skimming over her online site when I came across it. As I'd been trying for years to lose weight, I immediately joined.

Coming up with a Spark name was easy: my husband has nicknames for everything (and everyone) and he has called me his "bear girl" for as long as I can remember. The bear part of this nickname is due to my dislike of the cold (bears hibernate); the girl part because I'm his girl emoticon

I think the name Bear_Gurl works for me; I'm a work in progress and until I lose some of my "extra fluff", I'll still feel like a cuddly teddy Perhaps I'll eventually change my name, but I don't have a clue as to what: )

    I like the name and as long as you still love to cuddle with the hubby and be cuddled I think you should keep it! :)

The best I can remember, my name came from circumstances I was in at the time. I think I had in mind to have a name that was tied to no one but me. In April 2008 I probably was a lil crazy. LOL
