Another Sparkie makes it to Onederland!

I hope you'll join me in "liking" this blog - please go show support for this fantastic lady who has lost a kid and a cat along the "weigh" and maybe you will "like" the blog too!


**On another note, I hit an all-time high today of 125 lbs! A well-meaning relative dropped off some "chocolate-chocolate fudge cake" from Walmarts/Sams Club and knowing how good it is was my undoing. Mind you, I have been struggling for weeks for some reason - the heat isn't helping.

From this day forward, no one will be dropping off goodies at my home. If I am not buying them, no one should be bringing them in either. A sliver would have been bad enough - 2 very large pieces means I cannot control this food. Add this to my little list of "NO" foods.

I think I need to make a new sign for my door. We used to have a "No Smoking" sign, now I need one for "No Chocolates Of Any Kind Allowed In This Home" to hang prominently on my doors.

I do know it is temporary weight gain, but it should have been avoidable too.

... it says, "no chocolate zone" emoticon

    Yeah, I understand that one. It always seems to happen when you are doing really well and it knocks you off track.
    Family events have me off track now trying to get through them.

    Linda . I know that weight will come off. I have no worries about your determination. Sometimes we do need to indulge just to rememeber where we have been and how far we have come. A few steps down a forbidden path doesn't have to turn into a voyage. Could you make me a NO CHocolate sign for my door and by that I mean my mouth, too. LOL See you in Spetember, thinner,

    Oh, I hear ya! There are several no-no-don't-go-there foods. I can do a little bit of very dark chocolate, though, without getting carried far away...

    You are so sweet (pun, there) for providing support for Shelby.

    Gonna check out your recommended link.

    And: my sympathies on the chocolate thingy. I managed to deeply offend a friend who wanted to drop off a homemade fig loaf; had to tell her (nicely, I thought) to please not do it. Because . . . delicious as it is . . . I'm not going to be able to not eat it. And eating it is going to trigger other food cravings. Grrrr. Which I'll be battling for weeks (like taking a bottle over to an alcoholic, basically).

    My DH would be very disappointed but I'm with you on this one! Take care-hugs!

    I think it's rude for people to do that especially if they know how hard you've worked to get where you are today. They should have brought a nice veggie or fruit tray.

    I agree with several others that you could sell those signs! I would take one for when I go back to school in a couple of weeks. I'll need all my willpower and more to deal with that.

    I also agree with everyone that you will turn that around in no time. You are definitely on of my biggest motivators and inspirations! emoticon

    I should have a No Chocolate sign too!!! The heat is getting to me too, you are not alone there. Cake is everywhere! This week I have my husband's birthday today and my son's on Friday! I wish I could just buy cakes and be done but with our food issues I have to make them. I baked a cake today and will make another one on Thursday! They are small but ugh!!!! I need all the help I can get here so please send positive thoughts and warm fuzzies!!! LOL Make that cool fuzzies!!!! Baking cakes in this July is crazy and warming up my house even more. Sigh....

    Hi Linda!
    Chocolate is Fatal for me too ..
    I don't have a sign on the door but is a great idea.
    I think and hope, I am past that now .. if I do indulge I only have a piece ..
    I can do that now ...
    Once upon a time the whole bar would go in one hit !
    To be absolutely honest .. I only like the really dark chocolate any way .
    So it is much easier to say no thank you !!
    Love and Hugs Susie

    Love the idea for a sign!

    You are so motivated, Linda, I am sure it won't take long to get back to your weight again.

    What a wonderful blog. Leslie is a wonderful motivator as you and I know. I wouldn't get worried about 125. You wil turn it around and be back to 117 before you know it. You are the most motivated person I know.

    Love you

    I would like to purchase one of those signs for work. It seems like all the yummy treats that no one wants in their house, they bring here. I don't mind it once in a while but we have a woman here who does it all the time. I am constantly refusing her offers.

    NO, I do not want a double choc chip cookie. NO, I do not want a piece of your leftover birthday cake. NO, I do not want a bear claw. I am surprised this woman sleeps with as much sugar she ingests in a day. NO joking !!

    I love that idea of a sign on the door. Perhaps that is what I need too! Love ya, Dawn emoticon emoticon

    Went to 2 cookouts yesterday and enjoyed an ear of corn, a bit of pasta, some wine and a little dessert.
    Back on track today and will avoid the scale until next Sunday.
    Please send me one of those signs, too.

    I think you could make a fortune selling those "No Chocolate" signs.
