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.

    Friday: 1 death in our county from the virus. **SIGH** Just sad. The gentleman was 90, though, so obviously overwhelmed by the affects of the virus.

    We are safe, however. Staying @ home. If the weather cooperates, maybe get a quick outdoor walk to get some sun, IF it comes out!

    It’s Friday. Enjoy. Take care! Stay well.

    Oh sweetie, these are trying times. EVERYONE is stressed, for sure.

    Miss Lilly is doing very well. She’s 9 mths. old. So cute! Enjoying good health.

    Yes, I heard that the border was closed. It’s a good thing to keep the spread from worsening.

    I cannot believe the level of craziness here with getting supplies, too. Just ridiculous. We have what we need, but no more, no less. *SIGH**

    Yes, schools, the libraries, parks, malls, restaurants and bars (except for pick up and delivery), churches – all closed. MANY are working from home. Good idea.

    It’s the same here. Not everyone is abiding by the rules. That is just going to prolong this virus.

    Glad that Bella is doing well!

    Awww, Montana sounds like a sweetie!

    It’s hard to have such stressors w/this virus and not overeat, but I’m right there with you. We’re trying to stretch our food, so basically having just 2 meals /day, which is working out well.

    Spring cleaning here, too. Keeps me busy!

    But so far, very healthy, thank Goodness. Did learn there’s 3 cases of the virus here in our county, and 1 death I just learned about, though that gentleman was 90. So, it probably totally overwhelmed his immune system.

    Stay well, take care and glad you wrote!

    Monday: Another day of the ‘new normal”. OY. Have to go to the audiologist this morning and that’s it.

    Take care of yourselves and stay well. DO try to get fresh air and sunshine (IF the sun is out).

    HUGS and stay well!

    Friday: Well, thank goodness it’s Friday! The market just tanked again yesterday. Lord. Time to get things back on track. **SIGH**

    Did have a quiet day yesterday. That was needed.

    John’s kittens are doing well after their little surgery the other day (neutering). NOT happy capers but they’re getting back up to speed.

    That’s about it.

    Wishing you a fabulous Friday!

    Tuesday: Well, rained all day yesterday. UGH. Looks like more on tap today, but it’s spring. It’s gonna rain.

    It is going to be an at-home day. On the go yesterday. Bot Miss Lilly groomed, got John’s cats dropped off for neutering and then back to pick them up. Meanwhile John found a new car (his car needed major repairs and just wasn’t worth putting the $$$ for repair into. The mechanic bought it from him. So all good.)

    Hugs and have a good Tuesday.
