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.

    Tuesday: Well, a mixed bag of results. My left ear has mild to moderate hearing loss. Most probably a hearing aide would help that a lot. The right ear . . . . sigh . . . different story. I have moderate to profound hearing loss in that ear. Most likely a hearing aide would NOT help that ear. I figured that so that didn’t come as a shock. I have to weigh medical options and will get some surgical options when I return to Mayo on 27 December. The last thing on the list for my left ear is a cochlear implant. THAT I am not going to do unless there really are no other options that are helping. So, that’s my news.

    Hope you all had a good Monday. Exhausted right now.

    I do start my Christmas shopping early. Usually in the summer. The only problem with that is you have to remember where you hid everything. emoticon I've come across little things months or a year later emoticon Doing it a bit at a time is easier on the wallet.

    Happy Tuesday. We are expecting rain starting tonight and through the next 3 days. Hope we don't wash away. emoticon

    Just got home. NOT great news about the ears. Have serious decisions to make, but going to just enjoy the holidays. Have another appointment on 27 December.

    OH NO, so sorry to hear about Serge catching a cold. It is just important to take care of ourselves!

    Wow! That oil is helping you!

    The spring rolls sound delicious! Especially since I am fasting for my blood work this morning..

    We had a cat like that. Barney decided the pass through counter between the living room and kitchen was his area. He would sit up there and if there was so much as a pen there he would knock off. I will say a prayer for you and Bella and the tree!

    Tom got out some of our Christmas decorations on Thursday and had them up by the time I got home from work. Did we forget Thanksgiving? Here in the states it's not til the 28th emoticon emoticon emoticon
