Well, I only just saw this thread, and so it looks like we're not looking for more spark page comments. I would like to say, though, that I really appreciate that you started this group and that it's been very helpful to me.
I'm very familiar with eating during high stress times, and how hard it is to make it all work. I hope you get your situation sorted out soon, and I'm certain that if you do decide to open your own business (either of them), you're going to do great at it.
Thanks, everybody! Sometimes it doesn't matter if you are a dork, as long as you get the end result you wanted! Remember the first time you went to an aerobics class after years or a yoga class for the first time?!? 'Nough said.
I don't want another leader for this group!-- though maybe we need to step up in the creation of challenges, etc, to support Bev.
And, Bev, if you WANT one of us to be a co-leader, just ask...but I think that there is empowerment in keeping your commitment. Heck, it got a bunch of us to come looking for you! tee hee!
If you want it to be a party, call on Bev! And doing the SparkDiet without you, just ain't no party!
Bev, kisses to Lilly!
Thanks again, teammates!

Thanks Sooz! BTW: You're a dork...lol! Just kidding- your intervention strategy obviously worked!
Okay everyone, I know I have dropped off the face of the Earth and yeah, things kind of suck around here right now. I am back home again, my new job did NOT work out and so I am on the hunt again. I do apologise for my abscence, but I'm sure you all can understand. I will try to make more of an effort to visit SP but I am still trying to either decide whether to work full time outside the home, open up an in home daycare, work on a business plan for an idea I've been tossing around, or become an independant sales person for Mabel's Labels- which if any moms on the team use them or know about them, I would LOVE some feedback on their products. My "job" right now has been looking in the paper for jobs! Needles to say, yes I am fairly depressed and eating every kind of junk food available. I have that whole self sabotage thing happening but I know I'll come out of it. Usually when fall rolls around I get the urge to move again so it may take me awhile to really feel like pushing myself again. Thanks to all of you who wrote to me- I appreciate your support. I am glad to see you all have stuck around, I'm sorry I have been such a cruddy leader! Hey, if you want to vote in an additional leader I'm game. Just let me know and I'll make it happen. You gals are the best! Bev
For those of you who don't know, Omahamama is my cousin. She introduced me to this website, and it has made such a difference in my life!
Here's my request...she is really not motivated right now. Could you guys go on her SparkPage and send her a shout out? I think it would make a huge difference to her. Let her know what a difference it makes when she is around. Remind her why she is doing this.
If it's not her time, that's cool-- but I think she might be a little isolated right now and need our support.
