Thanks for the welcome, I,m sure I,ll be calling on you for some advice and help when I get stuck, since this is my first week of losing pounds it has come off pretty good, just wait a few more weeks and I,m sure I,ll start to slow down, at that point I,ll need a BOOT emoticon to get going. Jan

emoticon Hi and emoticon Welcome

People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing -- that's why we recommend it daily.

Slow and steady wins the race.

Consistency is the key.

Isn't that interesting that you know about the Evangeline area in PEI. I use to spend a few weeks a year in Mount Carmel every summer with my Aunt and Uncle Gallant. I loved it there. Have a good week. Bye. Diane

Hi RiverRun, it's been ages since I've driven through Coles Island to get between Fredericton & Moncton... the new highway is so much easier!

I weigh in on Wednesdays, so that I have a chance to recover from weekends, since I don't usually too well during those 2 days. I'm just hoping for as little as 1/2 lb weight loss!

I've heard different things about weighing foods... some say to weigh things like meat before cooking, others say after, so I'm not sure what to think. I've been measuring meat after it's cooked, but veggies are measured raw. When I have an indulgence of sweet potato fries, I weigh them frozen. I really don't know if it makes that much of a difference, though. Does anyone know?

Have a super Spark Day, everyone!!

Hi: It,s me again, I know the area where you are now living. I have a summer home in Coles Island right on the river and I often run into Fredericton from time to time. How are you doing this week with your weight loss, do you weight your food before you make your meals? Have a good one.

Well, I'm finding this thread particularly amusing today!

So, there are a few of us from PEI, and one I saw from Cap Egmond. I have family in the Evangeline area, and my mother still has a chunk of land in Mont Carmel, not far from the church. As much as possible, I try to go at least once a year, which usually ends up being the agricultural festival. There's nothing like watching Cow Patty Bingo. :-D

I live outside Fredericton now, between the city and Stanley. Directions to our house include "turn off the paved road". :-D I'm just off Royal Road. When I moved to Fredericton in late '99, I lived in Marysville, just off Canada St, up the road past the Irving and the 2 churches. It was a great little house, but it was only a rental, so I had to bid it goodbye.

OMG, I saw the handle "GagnonBeach", and I knew you were from southeastern NB!

I grew up and lived in Dieppe (around Lakeburn) for many years, and it's only been since 2000 that I've been in Fredericton.

It's so good to find other New Brunswickers who are active on SP!

Spark on!!

Hi. I'm from Dieppe and my name is Diane. I'm 61, married 40 yrs, 2 children and have 6 grandchildren. I started SP 6 months ago and have lost 33 lbs. I'm really excited about my weight lost but it's getting harder now that we're down south in Arizona. The social life here is so good but so bad for weight lost. I do lots of exercise, we hiked twice and biked once this week. Beside we dance at least once a week. Life is good but food is everywhere. Help!!!
