SP Premium


Another year

Thursday, September 29, 2011

Hello Spark Peeps... although I do admit to a total lack of inactivity on this site, I am lurking. My Texas Rangers are in the playoffs again. I get to go this year at my own expense, so life is looking up a bit. Husband's job is better and pays better. Mine is better mentally and a little financially, but the commute is harder, so still working through that. I'm back in school three nights a week, so life is hectic and tiring. Scale is moving down. Unfortunately it moved way up before I could get it to go down, but I'm on the downward slide. Still 30 pounds to go, but I can do it this time. Air conditioner went out ALMOST on the last 100 degree day in Dallas, but we had two more after that and this week are pushing close to 100 again, but we are surviving. We aren't getting it fixed because it's 28 years old and needs to be replaced, so we are in the process of saving for that and trying to get it in the middle of the winter when the rates are good.

I see some have stayed, some have left, weight loss and weight maintenance is hard. Life is hard sometimes, but we just have to keep at it. I can't say that I was the best when I was in my low period and I did let myself slide and I beat myself up, but you just have to pick yourself up and get back on the horse.

Keep at it my friends.

Love Sherri

    Well, you haven't given up yet, so that's a good thing. I avoided the scale today cuz I had a bad week and expected a gain.... but I'm still around too...

    I like you have not been active and just lerking as well on SP. Because of this, I've gained a good 10 lbs this summer (too many carbs and alcohol and not enough work outs). Us 47 year olds need to stay on track! So I've only had 3 glasses on wine in the last 17 days and I'll be back to the gym this weekend! Let's try to help each other out. Stay cool in Texas!
