Spark Vloggers Team Challenge

Monday, March 28, 2011

Since I don't know how to Vlogg yet, here are my blog answers for this week's challenge.

1. I was introduced to SP by searching for weight loss programs. Found spark! It look overwhelming to me at first but I stuck with it to learn how to use Spark. Glad I did.
2. The final straw was when I took a picture of me to try to put on my facebook profile. I know I've aged, I'm 62 but didn't realize I had a double chin, too.
3. My psychological battle probably is accepted aging. I began seeing myself as old and and whatever shape I was in was due to aging. After meeting some spark women my age I realized I can get in shape and feel good about myself.
4. Vlogging appeals to me because I love watching live people's weight loss journey. It is so personal and since I live in a rural area, this is my socialization.
5. I think I left a couple of comments but need to do more.
6. I will try and learn how to link.

    I am a bit older then you, but I know how you feel. I always looked young for my age.
    They asked for my ID into my early 30's..Now I look in the mirror, and say "where did the time go?" But then on the other hand, I am a lot more contented with my life. We can't turn back time, but we can make ourselves better. emoticon

    We are the same age. I look ahead Lord will I will get to a older age and I see two groups of Seniors . Group one has positive attitudes,eat healthy and exercise . They focus on what they can do and not what they can't do. Group two has negative attitudes, don't pay attention to health reports and never exercise. They focus on what they can't do and talk about their ailments none stop. I want to be in group one when I reach 80 and still be going dancing and enjoying life.
    We can do it!

    Hi! It would be fun to see a VLOG...I like to put faces with what I read from them. A VLOG is perfect. I can't seem to get one that isn't blurry. I think I'm at the wrong distance from the webcam or something. I just stick to words. But good luck with the VLOG effort.
