Same here! Am looking forward to the eclipse on the 21st and hoping for clear skies that day. In upstate N.Y. we will not get the full eclipse, but still a truly neat view. I read that animals get confused amd people need to be mindful of pets, livestock during and after the eclipse. Probably could confuse anyone not expecting it. History is full of strange reactions and beliefs..

Especially from the days when the earth "was" flat. Lol.

I'm one of my teams, we are dedicating this month to being "Awesome in August" as a reminder to celebrate all that is good in us. Sometimes we need to focus on what is absolutely fine right now.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Breathe in love & compassion.. Breathe out peace & forgiveness.

emoticon Thank You for adding me!! I know what you mean about wondering how many are still out there.
It can be hard to find them or keep them motivated, but I'm glad you've kept the lights on here for us.

Welcome, Jeannie, as co-leader!
Lita and I joined a few years before you and were the ones welcoming folks into SP during the week for this class team and we've kept the team open despite the passing of years because you just never know when a member who left might return and wander into the 'room'!
You've been the most active here of all those who joined between May 31 and June 6 of 2009 so I'm delighted to stepped up to the plate. How many others are still active elsewhere on the site? I have no idea! And often do wonder, hoping that many ARE still here.

Ever wonder "How many members of this start-up team are active on the site?" I do!

Some people who joined SP during the week of May 31 - June 5, '09 may have quit the team but are still on the site. I hope that if anyone is struggling, he/she will know I'm still 'here' and would be glad to help if I can!

Lorraine An attitude of gratitude makes all the difference. According to aerodynamic laws, the bumblebee cannot fly. Its body weight is not the right proportion to its wingspan. Ignoring these laws, the bee flies anyway.

here are some words to ponder on......
hope this helps....


Try.

Try again.
Try harder.
Try tomorrow.
Try thinking about what has worked in the past.
Try and ask someone who has done it.
Try and figure out what is not working.
Try it a different way.
Try it once more.
Don't stop trying!

I used to think that people always left when they 'disappeared'. Some people register and never really get going. Some give up. Some... create altogether new names and pages instead of just changing their names when they re-start after a slip, too. But the idea I like most is that folks meet their goals and move onward!

As for me, so far I keep finding new goals. Nope, haven't reached a Great Weight Goal, but have met so many more goals that were even more important.

Ahhh how silent the threads are now, as team members go about their journeys elsewhere. Yes, the team is in many ways 'defunct' since members are no longer new or a 'class', but reunions of members who start together can be great, so I keep posting from time to time to be sure folks know I'm here if needed.

Aloha!

I'm now in HI and enjoying the weather, the quiet of my son and d-in-l's home...and RELAXING! It's a joy. I'm walking more, stretching more, and enjoying being in charge of the meals! I'd never have suspected that Kitchen Detail would be a joy, but it is; my son and d-in-l had asked that I take over meal planning and preparation to help them have healthier meals! Yup, they don't know it but ...they are Sparking too!

My absence leaves me in the dark and I have a question to ask everyone: How is everyone doing?

Happy New Year
- Author Unknown

If it didn't bring you joy
just leave it behind
Let's ring in the New Year
with good things in mind
Let every bad memory
that brought heartache and pain
And let's turn a new leaf
with the smell of new rain
Let's forget past mistakes
making amends for this year
Sending you these greetings
to bring you hope and cheer
Happy New Year!


wishing you all the blessings of 2010
may all that you wish for be yours

blessings and hugs.............lita
