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..

Something we were withholding made us weak, until we found it was ourselves...

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: Busy w/laundry, making masks. WE had ordered masks about 2 mths. ago and haven’t gottn any. So decided it is necessary to make some. That’s what I did. Turned out well.

    Sun for part of the day, so did get to sit outside and soak up some Vit. D. That was lovely. And of course, Miss Lilly have her very early morning walk.

    Let’s make it a thoughtful Tuesday.

    HUGS and stay well, stay safe.

    Sunday: Clara had a good rest. Went back in last night. No word on her girlfriend in MI. (She’s a nurse and is hospitalized w/the virus).

    HUGS and blessings on your Sunday.

    Saturday. Well, another at home Saturday morning date. Nice, but miss the diner!

    Clara got to go home for a few hours yesterday to pay bills. She got a text from a friend of her that is a nurse in MI (she is the daughter of neighbors we had in IL). She contracted the virus, and is hospitalized. Clara feels so bad for her. I do, too. It is just impossible to think how long it is going to take for these young people to get over this psychologically (well, us ‘olders’ too, but especially daunting for the young).

    Here’s to a peaceful Saturday that hopefully provides some sunshine!

    Blessings, stay safe, stay well

    Friday: Well, glad it’s Friday. Just continuing on the decluttering. And DH and I have played a few games of Monopoly. Kind of fun!

    Didn’t hear from Clara yesterday, but I know she’s off today. So hoping to talk to her.

    Getting an early morning in w/Miss Lilly. Nobody out, so it’s good.

    HUGS, stay well, stay safe and have a wonderful Friday!

    We actually had sun today. First time in a long time. Felt good.

    Oh good luck w/the hair dying. My hair is a mess . . . overgrown. But that’s how it has to be for now.

    Awww, Miss Lilly is plastered against me, too.

    Have a good Friday.

    HUGS and stay well, stay safe.
