Friday midnight

Time to get some sleep but need to jot a couple of things down. I have felt good about myself today. I got up an hour early and went down to the pool and did an hour of water aerobics today. Rode my bike for 35 minutes, cleaned out under my kitchen sink, UCK!, hate that job, and fixed salmon for dinner. It was just a good day. What made it different. Not sure except I have been so upset because somewhere I lost my activity tracker. I called the two stores that I had been too but of course they knew nothing. I debated if I should buy another one as they are expensive and if the clip is going to break that easy I should wait and save a little and get the vivoform or the fitbit. So yesterday, I hesitated all day just thinking about it. I felt down, I felt disappointed in not having it. I felt like I was undressed and mostly I felt like I didn't want to do anything extra. When I woke up this morning, I realized how important Spark is to me and that is why the SPAT made me feel so bad. It has become a friend to me just like all my spark friends here that I talk with and think about so often during the day. Each of them are so important in a different way. I think of Pixie, Morti, diabeticbag, each of us want to be healthy and happy and thinner and I felt that part of me was missing without this piece of plastic. After I got in the pool and splashing around, I realized it wasn't the plastic but the sense of security it gave me to know I was really trying this time. So I finished in the pool and came home and went to my tracker on the start page and put in all the work I had done for the last couple of days. It isn't the same but it is still there for me, the same way all my friends are. Today I reordered the Activity Tracker and I can't wait till it gets here and I am going to tape it too a bracelet or something but until it gets here, I will track by hand and know that I am doing what I am suppose to be doing. Just as my friends are doing, one minute at a time. Thanks you guys for getting me where I want to be. Jude

    Hey Morti, you are VERY important to me also and I can't wait till spring to compare our loses and our gardens. I love veggie and flower gardens so look out cause I will have lots of questions about what you are doing to grow smaller and how to make my garden grow bigger. :) Hang in there and yes get a tracker. They really do help and mine should be here Tuesday or Wednesday. I can't wait, but I did get my 5 miles on the bike today. Yea, and
    Granny, keep up the good work. What a leader and inspiration you are. I love your enthusiasm. But one word of advice, don't think I am going to feel sorry for you and let you get ahead of me in this new challenge, cause it AIN'T gonna happen. Just because you don't have a computer, doesn't mean you have to start eating again when you were in such good control. But you just have to put on the big girl pants and tighten the belt. You should get that tracker also. It really makes those steps count. We are all going to do this and we are gonna be three hot chicks. :) Have a great Sunday. Jude

    I feel the same way about my pedometer. I feel naked without it and don't try nearly as hard. I'm glad you decided to buy another as it really important to your progress. You are important to me and I want you to have every oppotunity to succeed. I'm thinking of getting one too.

    Jude, until I get my old computer back , I can't track my activity in the tracker. Something about the browser on this old apple. I never had a fit bit or anything wearable except for my omron pedometer and it has an attachment that is like a security clip. My omron clips on too but this is an additional clip that if the other clip fails then this one will catch it.
    I know what you mean about spark. It is like my security blanket lol. I never really has a security blanket but when I was off spark because or illness a few years back and the four months this time because of computer virus, I felt like I lost a peice of myself. I have so many friends that I missed and when someone leaves spark and you didn't even suspect it, it is awful.
    I am glad that we also find new friends on here, that we never would have met otherwise.
