Welcome and thank you for visiting my page. My name is Siegrid and I am a foodaholic or just plain addicted to food.
I have been with Spark People since February 2008 and had gone down from 220lbs to 132lbs which was past my original goal of 140lbs. I had reached my goal by october 2008 and managed to maintain until the middle of 2010, when my Dad died. Since then I have been going uphill.. I have tried and tried to restart here, but I have failed time and time again.
So, here I am, trying again.....I hope this time I can do it.

Plant seeds of expectation in your mind; cultivate thoughts that anticipate achievement. Believe in yourself as being capable of overcoming all obstacles and weaknesses..

I'm positive I can do this
I'm positive I'm making progress
I'm positive because I'm sure of myself
I'm positive because I have a goal!
I'm positive because I know where I am going
I'm positive I'll get there.

    Hope you are having a great Saturday with your horse. I am going into the office to catchup on some of the work I missed being sick.

    The news of the day yesterday was that Jas was offered and accepted a consulting position as consulting counsel for the IL Association of Insurance Commissioners. He’s very happy w/that as he knows the staff and the CEO and gets on well w/them.

    Had a rude awakening. The fire detector was screeching and yelling “fire, fire, fire”. LORD have mercy! It stopped after what seemed an eternity, and all the detectors went back to green, except the bedroom. It’s not screeching anymore, but not green. @ breakfast we asked a firefighter friend about it (thankfully he was there!) and he said not an emergency – probably either a spider web or a loose connection in that detector. So, we have to wait til Monday to call the electrician who installed the detectors. But the house is fine. Jeez!

    Breakfast date this morning. Nice way to celebrate!!!

    Hugs and enjoy Saturday.

    Nothing cool here but the air conditioning!

    Our town is 12,000. OH tell me about it! Spring when the fertilizing begins there are no open windows! UGH Yes, our corn has been really poor to nonexistent until lately, and it’s starting to grow a little, but don’t know if much corn will be harvested. That was the problem . . . the fields were flooded and couldn’t be planted.

    I could never do farming. I love gardens, etc., but to depend on it for my livelihood, couldn’t do it.

    Have a fantastic weekend.

    I do agree with the Zen lifestyle, and wish I could do hot yoga but can’t handle the heat. My complaint is that the two styles do not meld. Ie Zumba Zen. There is another format based on free form dance that flopped where I taught.
