As our Summer term ends, these are the things I have learned about myself.

Saturday, August 24, 2013

Well it has been over a month since I last updated my page and one of the wonderful things that is happening is that my gloomy depression seems to be lifting. I am up and cleaning, spending full time on SP and enjoying my teams so much more than I did. One of the teams that has really helped me focus and determine why this depression hits me so often is The Challenge of Harry Potter team or TCoHP. In the last 3 months I have learned so much about myself due to the changes in this team, CHALKDRAWJUMPER came along and breathed new life into the team and helped us to ask and answer the hard questions about why we have a problem with our weight, not to just concentrate on trying to lose the weight we are at. I have really learned more about myself in this 3 months than I did in the past year on SP. Who would have thought such a team could help do that for a person. The team has ended for the summer but the new fall term starts in a week and I am happy to announce that I am the new HoH aka Head of House for Ravenclaw. Now not only do I have accountability to myself and my team mates I have to set a good example for them and I can't wait to do it. We still have much role play fun on this team so it is not all about hard work but remember that will get you where your going but we all need a bit of role play fun to keep us headed towards our goals, that is what TCoHP brings to the Spark table. I am so looking forward to this next term to see what adventures it leads me on towards healthier living. Maybe I will see you there, I sure hope so.

    I have to agree that this summer's "thinking" activities have been a real help to me too. I look forward to more self evaluation, as well as better habits developing, and a good dose of fun in the fall term. Congrats on you HoH status too. You will be a real asset to the team.,

    I am doing the happy feet dance, reading that you are feeling so much better! Self-knowledge is power, ain't it! I'm still thinking about joining up, but I have such a busy Fall ahead of me--last night I learned that an old friend I haven't seen since 1976 is flying out here to visit me for a week at the end of September, courtesy of her daughter as a birthday present. I'm over the moon, but emoticon I've got to spend every spare minute between now & then working on decluttering this house! And that's in addition to being on the board of the Scottish club, president of the rock art club, leading a group to Bishop to see the rock art, and having Sonja here 5 days a week (except for when her in-laws go on a cruise for 10 days, & then head to Hawaii for 3weeks.) So I'm not sure I could do it justice! But it's tempting!

    I am losing weight, partially because of the ADD meds, but also because I have cleaned up my act to get my BG under control. It's hard, but it's working!

    And I really am thrilled to read that you're doing so much better! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'm glad to see that you're doing so well thanks to TCoHP. I will get back there soon - I've been living at my cauldron since we got back from vacation.

    Lady Nims, this is such a insight into your transformation journey, and I feel *blessed* to get this opportunity to see your changes from the chrysalis, into the beautiful butterfly we already knew you are. And thank you for your lovely words of credit. I only stirred what was already there. I knew there was still love and life somewhere inside her sleepiness and sure enough, she woke up and she's ready for another term!! I am so excited you accepted House Ravenclaw HoH and, don't worry, Nim, you are a natural. And besides...

    Everything will be all right once we get to Tir Asleen. -Madmartigan (Willow) emoticon
