My husband went out in the morning and shovelled away the snow from our pathway and from our pavement and our neighbour's pavement. Our neighbours were delighted as their little daughter wanted to go toboganing in our local park. <BR> I don't know if it is my low thyroid but I am feeling freezing cold. I don't want to eat. Also our gas boiler that supplies our hot water for the bathroom and the kitchen finally gave up the ghost after 30 years. So we are havi...

Fri, 3 Feb 2012 06:26:39 EST Illness maybe not so bad? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4692595 Been ill all week. Sore throat making me almost speechless,, fuzzy thoat, aching limbs, <BR> insomnia, depressed and runny nose. As I have never had a cold. Maybe it is a bad cold. <BR> However, I have LOST three pounds. Yippee! Fri, 20 Jan 2012 02:42:22 EST trophies http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4653199 I feel happy because I have been awarded Consistency Dec.2011 and 500 Sparkpoints Dec. <BR> 2011, despite driving rain and gusting winds. Hope you are all feeling well and that 2012 will <BR> prove to be a great year with lots of weight loss. <BR> Hugs Sylvia and family Tue, 3 Jan 2012 05:10:49 EST 2012 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4643131 I am hoping like mad I can lose the weight faster in 2012. I am now 70. Not getting any <BR> younger. Of course, being hypothyroid doesn't make things easier. I am being so careful, even over my birthday and Christmas. I do feel fed up. I do feel the pain of my burn and my <BR> rheumatoid arthritis would lessen if I lost a lot of weight. I am sorry to moan. I am just <BR> having a bad day. Hugs from Sylvia Thu, 29 Dec 2011 11:03:56 EST Better day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4615327 My husband took me out for lunch today. Also when I weighed myself I lost another pound in weight. Hurrah. Tue, 6 Dec 2011 18:57:40 EST So slow http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4613254 The weight is going so s l o w l y! I have a low thyroid and have to take thyroxine. <BR> I don't eat sweets or chocolates, alcohol, etc. As I am disabled, I cannot do exercises <BR> to assist. HELP me please to lose faster. I feel suicidal at the moment. Mon, 5 Dec 2011 12:10:44 EST Trophy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4611775 Won 500 monthly Spark points for November. Hoorah! Sun, 4 Dec 2011 12:13:34 EST Monthly points http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4491134 How on earth does anyone get over 4,000 points in one month? Wish someone could explain it to me. I fceel quite jealous. Could it be because I am disabled <BR> and can't do the exercises? <BR> Sylvia of London Sun, 18 Sep 2011 13:59:07 EST How to award a goodie to someone http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4485876 I don't know if I am stupid or maybe it is my age, but I can't remember how to award a goodie to someone! Help! I know the points are imaginary but I just love giving things to people! <BR> Sylvia of London Thu, 15 Sep 2011 06:11:08 EST American food terms http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4470960 Much as I like Spark, half the items of food I don't understand as we have different names for the foods in England and as I never go to fast food restaurants, I sometimes have to guess at things when I fill in food quizzes. Wed, 7 Sep 2011 07:24:43 EST not depressed today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4468734 This is nothing to do with slimming but I just opened the post and I have won a <BR> competition. I do 60 a week (it is my hobby) and had not won anything for 2 years. I shall be spending a weekend with my husband in a posh hotel/spa in <BR> a suite including breakfast and Michelin type dinner, plus a pedicure and a facial! It is worth £1,000. I am so excited. How can I be depressed today. Not <BR> possible. Thought I would share this with you so that you don't think I am normally a ... Tue, 6 Sep 2011 04:30:39 EST Support http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4466806 Dear all! <BR> Thank you so much for your supportive entries which is much appreciated. <BR> What lovely people you are. <BR> Sylvia of London Mon, 5 Sep 2011 02:00:09 EST Depression http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4464508 I have been feeling down all day today. I don't know why but it has made me cry. My husband is so good to me, but he can't make the depression go away. <BR> As I am only sleeping about 3 hours a night, maybe that's the reason. Sorry to <BR> moan. Regards Sylvia Sat, 3 Sep 2011 16:33:30 EST quizzes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4461168 I am still annoyed there are no new quizzes as I have done them all and therefore can't earn any new points. Thu, 1 Sep 2011 18:04:53 EST logging in http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4461164 I am really fed up when I go to my emails and see a Spark message that gives you 1 point and when I go to the spark page I have to log in again. Today I had 5 <BR> emails from Spark and had to log in again and again. I am fed up to the teeth <BR> about this! Thu, 1 Sep 2011 18:03:47 EST Disabled people http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4443171 It is all very well having all the walking, running, squats etc. Why can't Spark <BR> cater more for people who are disabled. Who can't stand for longer than 3 minutes. Cannot bend down, etc. Otherwise Spark is great. Tue, 23 Aug 2011 03:47:46 EST Account Preferences http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4435965 To EXENEC <BR> I just don't understand computerts! I can't find "Account Preferences". Help. Fri, 19 Aug 2011 02:39:29 EST New Quizzes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4429689 I can never get any points for the quizzes now because I have done them all! <BR> Why can't we have new quizzes? It is infuriating. Tue, 16 Aug 2011 03:21:46 EST
