CONFIDO999's SparkPeople Blog CONFIDO999's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Confido--Out! Before all my sparkfriends freak out--I'm just deleting my Confido sparkpage out of caution because a webpage my husband frequents was hacked, and unfortunately he uses the same handle on that page as I do here. So, just to make sure our family is secure on line, I'm deleting my Confido profile. I'll be back with a new handle very soon, and will notify everyone when I can think up one that suits me. <BR> <BR> TTFN! Tue, 21 May 2013 12:28:02 EST Just an explanation... Hello to all my spark friends--even those I haven't met yet! First of all, I just want to say sorry for being MIA for so long--I thought it would be easier to write an apology in a blog rather than hit all my team sites and say the same thing several times over. <BR> <BR> The reason I have been gone for so long is that we just got back from a family visit. My husband's brother passed away recently from complications of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). He had been fighting this disease for the last... Fri, 28 Oct 2011 13:38:00 EST Can You Break a Dependency on a Necessity? I am at the next level in Sparkpeople that prompts another blog entry--this one is supposed to be about emotional eating. I am supposed to explore the events in my life and see if they have a connection to my eating patterns. <BR> <BR> This one is a toughie for me. I have always seen myself as strong--almost an island--above the influence of most of society and smart enough to be able to work things out on my own. Truth is, I have not been that honest with myself. I am influenced by a ... Thu, 19 May 2011 11:24:13 EST The Ruminations of a Bored Mind It is a very slow day today, and when that happens--world, watch out! <em>101</em> <BR> <BR> Only kidding! I promise I'm not plotting some super-villain sort of strategy to take over the world or anything. It's just my mind comes up with odd ideas when it's allowed to roam freely. <BR> <BR> I just logged onto Sparkpeople to track my water intake, when I took a good look at the log in page. I'm sure you have all seen it--the ticker on how many glasses of water, fitness minutes, and l... Thu, 12 May 2011 12:46:44 EST My Biggest Hurdle? Myself. I'm sure many of you are at the point of your Spark journey where you have been prompted to write about a "problem goal". I am at that point, and this is my attempt to fulfill that assignment. <BR> <BR> At first, I thought of all sorts of flippant answers to that question, but I wanted to take this assignment seriously, so I have been thinking about it for a while now. I think my biggest hurdle is fear of success. I am mature enough now in my advanced (45) years that I know I am strong e... Sun, 1 May 2011 17:33:19 EST Trying to Work My Anti-Luck Mojo Here... I was hoping my first attempt at blogging would be a little more "sparky" and positive--sorry about that. I promise to try an upbeat post next time. <BR> <BR> My main goal with this blog is entirely self-centered, which I really hate doing, but I am faced with difficult times and I feel the need to try and do everything I can to change it, even if it is an act of silly superstition. To clarify, I have this weird anti-luck mojo whenever I publicly announce something. For example, my stat... Thu, 7 Apr 2011 11:12:37 EST
