I really thought today's entry would be about moths...

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

I was even going to thank Finito and Optimum for keeping me sane in the fight against...well...Mother Nature.

But as I had just finished clearing the whole food cupboard, inspecting each and every bag, packet and tin I decided to check my email.

38 x 'new comment on your page'

.............huh ??.................

Ah, I thought, must be the slight mishap yesterday with entering some data for my start date which resulted in my ticker showing my start weight as current. When I reset it to the actual data it must have somehow generated a 'Knittingfrog lost 9 kg', or 18 lbs, or whatever that works out.

But the comments were not that, in fact, they indicated I was DONE girl for the day (ahem, GO ME ?!!). How did THAT happen? I even went to the mail to check, and sure enough, there I am...

I have to admit, seeing all that love got me tearful. In the same silly way as Wall-e did towards the end. I guess I am and always will be a sucker for happy endings!

So, with all that Spark love pushing me upwards and onwards, I think I will rewrite my intro page.

It has been a fab 2 and a half months, and I have achieved more than I thought I could all by myself, and I KNOW I would have given up were it not for the constant support and reassurance and friendship I found on Spark through its wonderful members.

There have been set-backs, and I know I will have to face some more, but now I know I can face them because I feel part of a healthy eating revolution that just will not be stopped!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a whole cupboard to re-organise, but I wanted to say THANK YOU for being there, for taking the time to write some kind words when I needed them, for sending me goodies to make me smile when I was frowning..

You girls (and guys) are truly special, and I feel very lucky to have met you...if only through a computer !!

    Okay...I'm lost. What does DONE mean?

    even sitting here 'in the dark' I can see it deserves congratulations. So...

    CONGRATULATIONS!
