I found my *spark* - it was hiding under the bed of all places!!

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Sheesh! My *spark* was hiding under the bed - and here I kept looking for it in the fridge!

Ok, I did pray for help to get back on track - I really cannot afford to go back to where I started. We all know that if we go back to the old ways we also go back to the old weighs.

I believe my prayer was heard and answered and yesterday I had to eat due to the *weak wobblies* when my sugar dropped. Today my focus will be on smarter choices if the *weak wobblies* hits me again.

Diane - I am down .8 from yesterday! WooHoo!!

To the rest of SparkLand - I am still up @123.2 - but I am hopefully back in the saddle and will keep praying and asking for help.

Love y'all!

I know many don't believe or have faith in a higher power - but I do and I prayed for help. To me, asking for help is NOT weakness - it is strength - and I got help yesterday as I really didn't have the hungries, finally!

I did get *the weak wobblies* and had to eat but could have made smarter choices. I fear I went into a panic but that is understandable - my hands started shaking and my knees went all weak on me. Afterwards I realized it was a blood-sugar drop. So I got my trusty mints out! Better 20 calories than 200, lol.

    You have to listen to your body BUT sometimes stuff happens (the wobblies - in your case...:-)) I always admire the way you seem to handle things.

Choices, choices, choices.... sometimes we don't make the best ones... but you are mindful and have already made up your mind to do better next time.

I too have back slid a bit - about 10 lbs... but now that my biking buddy is back in commission - well I am highly optimistic that I will be leaving those lbs trailside over the next couple of months.

Thanks for being you!

    I guess you better look under your bed and see how many sparks are under there! I am still looking for mine too. I most definetly believe in prayers and that our prayers are answered. Have seen it work too many times not to believe. Praying does not make you weak, it does make you stronger. Glad you got your spark back! Hopefully mine will return soon too.

    Dearest Linda. I hope all the wobblies are gone and you are your sound and sane self again. Whew, you had me scared yesterday! I did my share of praying too and asked for you to find your way. I know that many were thinking of you in their own ways and Yes I believe ina higher power as well.
Just when you think you have it all under control, life slips you a curve ball, every time. It's learning to duck and weave that sorts this all out but I guess we never can know what the next pitch is going to be. Welcome to the rest of your life, which will be longer know that you work on being fit and healthy.
Remember 80/20 and put your loss of faith behind you. Look ahead and maybe you'll see me running( ha ha that won't be too soon) ahead of you chasing my dreams too.

    That is scarey. It has happened to me only once and it terrified me. I'm so glad you found your spark. I'll look for mine under the bed later. LOL!

Love you,

    ** if we go back to the old ways we also go back to the old weighs.

This is so true! I have a couple of friends that must have done the same thing (with another program) because they were complaing of returning to the old "weighs"


So glad you found that your spark was not lost but merely hiding close by!

    So very glad you got your Spark back! Let me be your cautionary tale...I found the 18 pounds I lost last year, till I came back & am refocusing. Actually, I was never gone, but under a ton of stress and if it weren't for my higher power, I wouldn't have made it through. So yes, prayer does work and I thank God for Spark friends like you! emoticon Renee

    Aw, yes, how often we need to pray for help/strength. And, the strength comes if we "listen" to His guidance.
Glad you found that pesky spark - it can sometimes get away and hide in the most obscure places!
