I’m a ‘C’ - No longer a ‘D’ - Maybe I can even be a ‘B’?

Sunday, December 02, 2012

Gee, that sounds like breast reduction surgery. No, that’s not needed here. It has nothing to do with weight either. It’s my TRIVIA SCORE! 75% for November and 70% since I started. I started VERY badly.

I wrote awhile ago that although it made me aware of how much I didn’t know, I was determined to keep at it without using an “open book” or “open Google”(not that there’s anything wrong with that as Seinfeld would say).

I’m very stubborn and tenacious so I just started reading more articles and taking some quizzes. I’ve learned a lot from reading blogs too, not just the featured ones, but those written by friends and friends of friends. It is amazing how one person’s post leads to another and adds to my base of knowledge. I’ve become aware of some inspirational personal stories too. We’ve taken some different routes on the same journey. See you all at the finish line!

    You are such an information junkie. I know someone else like that.
If you don't mind, I hope it's a very long time 'til I see you at the finish line!

    I'm not so good at the trivia either, but I keep at it. I figure I learn a lot even when I'm wrong. And I too refuse to cheat :)

    The thing is, though, there isn't any finish line! (Well, other than the one all of us reach.) That has been an eye opener for me--that this is a lifelong journey.

I hear you about learning from others here, all the time! I've discovered, on our maintenance team, that I've never "really" been maintaining in the way I want to. I reach a low goal weight, over and over, then bounce up from it, over and over. The bounces aren't that big any more--no more than 7 pounds--but my new idea of maintenance is going to consist of staying right AT that goal weight. Thus the change in my tracker. I still don't know exactly how I'm gonna do it, but it should be interesting. Hmm. There might be a blog in this insight.

Thanks for making me think, even on a weekend!

    I'm doing about the same as you (72% overall). I asked one of the people who was at 100% for the month how she did it. You guessed it - Google! Google gives you the exact same question (with answer) at some of the SparkPeople message boards. I guess I could do well that way also, but I just wouldn't learn anything. I'll just have to work towards the "B" the old fashioned way!
