6/5/2020 Oops! Just a FEW years since I last updated this badboy! I'm popping in... have pretty much shifted to using my fitbit to track movement, and MFP to track intake... and syncing them between each other... but we never forget our 'first'! This place is just special, as are the many friends that may or may not still be around.

Fair warning - if you are away too long, you lose your sparkpoints! They're all gone! I was way up there, too... *sniffle* Since I'm not using this site to really track anything (other than what fitbit syncs), I don't guess I'll ever get back up there to the top again. Oh well! Let's just work on getting me healthy! That was and shall always be the goal!

Winnie... if you see this. I miss ya!

4/26/13 Update - Back in the saddle!

You may have noticed me lurking about, or not... but here I am... still kickin', just not quite as high again yet! Workin' on that.

Time flies... instead of dredging on about the last *cringe* 1.5yrs, or how much was gained or how much ground was lost... just hoppin' back on the wagon, full steam ahead!

So glad to see so many familiar SparkedFriends either still here, or returning as I am! You all make my day!

Without further ado, let's get cracking! I have a hungry belly and calories left to go enjoy some dinner with friends! Let's make the most of this weekend!

the old stuff / I'm a packrat, can't delete just yet!:

6/17/11 Update

OK, Dr visit came & went, but the focus was more on the Mastoiditis than the 'general health'... but at least none of the scrips written were for blood pressure or cholesterol! My HDL is still pretty low, but apparently the ratio is what more concerns him, and it was fine!

Ear/head still aching, but hopefully the Amoxicillin is working its magic. Lord knows the Lortabs do (if their magic is to cause slumber).

Key thing is - no ongoing meds! Wahoo! Get the rest of this weight off, and I'll be even better off!

6/5/11 Update

This week, I'll be having the bloodwork that will determine whether or not I get to stay off the meds I had been on! Say some prayers! I can't say whether I'll take 'em either way ;) but, we'll see!


Let's get off those meds!

(PS - changed "Starting Weight" to my actual "lifetime high" back in January - 2+ months before I discovered SP) - yeah, got boring seeing the same 5-6# loss on my ticker over the past week LOL)

My Program:
Orig info from initial Spark joining:

Although just getting started in SP, I've been at this seriously since a Dr's appt in January.

Joined the local Y late January then spent about 1.5wks on sick leave from life. When I finally got set up @ the Y with an ID, I signed up on, and a few weeks later, saw someone post about SP - and here I am!

Personal Information:
One Day at a Time...
One addiction at a time ;o)

Ooh, and I've switched one addiction for another... well, the means to nicotine anyway... I no longer smoke! I vape! It's been 2.5 years since I'd had a real cigarette! I'm amazed and in awe of myself!

New: I've drastically reduced my dietCoke intake to less than 20oz/day on average. I've actually had a few days of NO carbonated beverages! I miss carbonation more than dietCoke - but one doc pretty much demanded I cut out the bubbles :(

    The only way to fail is to give up. Whatever comes, whatever happens, keep going.

    Fix your eyes on the goal, and persist. Your vision, your commitment, and your actions will take you there.

    When you can make great big strides, make them. When you can take only small steps, take them.

    See every moment as the opportunity that it is. When the wind is at your back, keep going, and when the wind is blowing against you, keep going.

    Make good and effective use of whatever you encounter. Tap into the positive value that is always there.

    Know precisely where you wish to go and why. Keep going, and you are there.

    "How would your life be different if . . . You were conscious about the food you ate, the people you surround yourself with, and the media you watch, listen to, or read? Let today be the day . . . You pay attention to what you feed your mind your body, and your life. Create a nourishing environment conducive to your growth and well-being today."

    Crowd out poor health habits. Choose activity before TV. Eat 3 veggies first for each meal. You will crowd out the less healthy choices.

    You have to keep moving forward."
