I didn't meet my weight loss goal for August. Missed it by a couple of pounds. I'm not discourage by that, because the pounds continue to come off. I just had a bit of a hiccup during Stephanie's birthday week.
My Spark Streaks seem to have all come to a screeching halt. I'm not worrying over that, either. Between starting a new job, my wife having knee surgery, and Stephanie starting her Junior year in High School, my life has changed in probably the most drastic way since the day I got married 25 years ago. I'm hanging in there, though. I've not allowed the eating to get out of control. Still controlling that. I've faltered in my exercise, but am confident that I will get back into that groove soon. I've only been at my new job for 2 and a half weeks, so I'm still getting used to working 9-6 during the day, rather than a graveyard shift, which I worked for close to 15 years straight.
But staying in my daily regimen is my communication with SparkPeople. I continue to read the emails, visit the forums, and try to post something in the forums at least once a day. These people have become my friends and I find that I miss them if I don't visit the forums daily. SparkPeople has become very important to me, more so than I ever expected it would. And I continue to to tell people about it, as well. During my unemployed period, I had a weekly workshop/support group at the Texas Workforce Solutions office, which was led by a counselor. When I brought up SparkPeople in one of her workshops, she thought it was an awesome idea!
Gotta close this now and get on to my devotional blog. I hope everyone has a great day today!
