Day 341

Friday, November 30, 2012

Just gotta throw out a huge word of gratitude I have for all of my SP friends. You all are the BEST!!! YOU inspire me every day. None of this would be happening in my life had I not been led to SP. Yes, I DO believe this was Divine intervention!! When I lost 55# 10 years ago it wasn't like this - really it wasn't! It was hit & miss, doing the best I could to get it off....but with no support network I became a statistic and joined the 95% of those who lose it and regain it. Being part of SP feels so different - this is the missing part of the puzzle I didn't have the first time around. This time when I see so many people who are in the 5% Club I know I can make it too. Now I'll get to enjoy this state of mind & body for the duration - not for just a couple of years. Here on SP you never have to look far for inspiration from countless people who 'get it', met their goals and then maintained their healthy new lifestyle. It's there for all of us - that's the great news. Thanks to all of you for being a friend. Really.

It was a much better day. Had more time, got more accomplished early on. Jetta & I did the big hill, then went on into the woods for more cardio hiking. Did 9.25 miles on the day. Jetta had a ball. Went swimming in the creek at the bottom of the hill and loved the water. She's so much fun and is quite a gal!!! Love her to bits!!

Did a strength training session tonight - core; lower body.

DH cooked dinner on the grill tonight - boneless pork loin chops, sliced sweet potatoes and green beans. Tasted so good.

There's a challenge for tomorrow - the Army National Guard Christmas party at the armory with our son & his family & his Army unit. Food. Lots of food. Lots of high fat, high sugar food. I'll just look it over and if I don't see anything healthy I'll just pass. I can always eat later. I'm not going to do that to myself. It wouldn't feel good after the fact. Surely they'll have a vege tray???? I'll let you know what kind of food was up for grabs tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by today if you had time. Hope your Friday was wonderful and that you were able to get out to enjoy this wonderful very late fall weather. emoticon

    Agree! Go for the socialization if nothing else. How wonderful that your son's unit does this!

I will sorely miss my son this year, but know we'll skype and phone calls, so that's good!

HUGS and here's to a fantastic, sparking December. I couldn't agree w/you more. In my lifetime I've probably lost the weight equivalent of a herd of elephants. The difference in KEEPING the weight off has definitely been Spark People and all the wonderful peeps!

    Eat a healthy snack before the party. At the party you will be busy having fun and visiting. Try to find some water to drink.
