Confessions of a (Former) Sugar Addict
Saturday, December 26, 2009      11 comments

Dickens' A Christmas Carol
Thursday, December 24, 2009      5 comments

I tuned in to see this movie with George C. Scott and hadn't seen it in many years. What really dawned on me, when it ended, was that I'd been visited- in my own way - by each of these ghosts. The memories of Christmases past have been mak... Read more
The Up Side of Having Fallen Off the Wagon
Wednesday, December 23, 2009      10 comments

I'd slowly started eating a bit more than what is now "normal" for me. It started in October and Thanksgiving was, what I thought to be, a point of no-return. It took me a few weeks to summon the courage to get on the scale. When I did, I fou... Read more

Yesterday, I was beside myself with a major water leak, when JLITT62 wrote and provided a great website. Went there and within seconds after filling out the form, my phone rang with three very, very good contractors. It ... Read more

Not such a nice surprise awaiting me outside my door today - a water leak forming a huge puddle. Means, where do I begin finding a contractor who won't rip me off and make the mess worse? Life is a constant source of surprises. Do you think S... Read more
Sparkaversary, Giving Back, Leaderboards, and Miscellaneous Thoughts
Sunday, December 20, 2009      6 comments

It's been 11 months since finding SP, and each month I reflect upon the benefits derived from this site. Friendship, tracking, accountability, learning, fun, etc. But more than that, from my recent 3-day "break" from SP, I realized that there ... Read more
Priming the Motivation Pump
Saturday, December 19, 2009      4 comments

I read this morning's blog by Chunkster, and it reminded me that motivation is like having to fan a fire. It doesn't automatically keep going, you have to keep priming that pump to keep it going. Since around September or October, I began to s... Read more

In a few days... 11 Month Anniversary on Sparkpeople! Where did the time go?
Thursday, December 17, 2009      2 comments

In four days, it'll be 11 months since joining this great site. Can't believe how fast this year has evaporated. My progress has been in several non-weight loss ways, and as valuable as though I'd lost more weight. I've kept off the 34 I've l... Read more
It' Not Easy Being Green (Kermit the Frog)
Wednesday, December 16, 2009      4 comments

I picked up a sweet little book with quotes by Jim Henson, the creator of the muppets and the voice of Kermit until he died. It's nice to read the positive thoughts and topics about creativity. I miss him on this planet and still enjoy occasion... Read more

Tuesday, December 15, 2009      16 comments
