Christmas is just around the corner - and while some of us might not celebrate Christmas as a religious holiday, it is likely that everyone joins in the thoughts of "Peace On Earth, Goodwill Toward Men (and women)". And it is also just as lik... Read more
Plan B ...

Well, friends, it is beginning to look very much like I will not reach my goal of losing 4 more pounds by Thanksgiving - my calendar says there are only 4 days left until Thanksgiving. To achieve my goal of losing 4 pounds by then, I'll have t... Read more

This is the craziest thing! When I lose, I get all excited and think it might be because of something I'm doing - yet, when I do what I think is exactly the same thing the next day, I gain, and I just can't figure out why. Does this mean I'm wil... Read more
S.O.S - 101
Monday, August 02, 2010      7 comments

I'm one of those people who couldn't decide whether to just give up totally and quit Spark or try running off to join the circus! I struck a compromise and put myself into a sort of "witness protection program" - working by myself as best as I c... Read more
Could it be TRUE?

I know that the scales DO, occasionally, lie! That is just one of the hazards of doing business with scales, which can be fickle at best, and liars at worst. But, my scales have consistently shown a weight loss - two days in a row? Could it b... Read more

When I first joined Spark People, I had great hopes that it would be sort of a "magic bullet" for me. I now believe that I didn't identify my target well enough and, if there is a magic bullet here, it has gone astray! I thought it was importa... Read more
"Grandma, did you find yourself?

So, a stray cat has recently adopted us. Then she found her way into my '73 VW Super Beetle, which has been in storage for the past 5 "winter" months, and laid a batch of 5 kittens. We discovered the momma cat and her new family when we went t... Read more
Question: "Am I the Problem?"
Wednesday, May 12, 2010      8 comments

Tonight during Mediation Training, the question was posed to mediators: "When the parties fail to reach a resolution or agreement, are you, as mediator, the problem?" Well, as we discussed the pros and cons of that issue, it occurred to me tha... Read more

So - Self and I had a sisterhood-pact: We would go to our mediation training with a firm plan. We thought it best that the plan be "firm," but not set in concrete! And off we went, into the Lions' Den of social eating. And, joy of joys, ... Read more

So, Self - You and I are going to have a problem tomorrow unless we decide right now how we are going to handle the food challenges that will surely rear their ugly heads. You'll remember that we are going to an all-day training seminar for Con... Read more
When you are in a hole, STOP digging!
Friday, May 07, 2010      12 comments

Usually we dig the holes that we find ourselves in. Not usually can we put the blame anywhere except squarely on our own shoulders! This is true whether we say things that we know we shouldn't; we fill our homes with clutter (whether there is ... Read more
Giving Up on Teams???
Tuesday, May 04, 2010      12 comments

So - today I got the "cleaning" bug and decided to declutter my Spark Page by eliminating some of the Teams I've joined. Seems like there are some that I've been unable, or unwilling, to search and keep current with, so as I've added new teams,... Read more
Endure to the end!
Friday, April 30, 2010      6 comments

Some weeks I have thought that "enduring to the end" might be to make it until Friday. But today is Friday, and rather than let it be the "end" of my vigilence in the nutrition/exercise area, I think I'll continue to endure - and plan to do it ... Read more
Time for me??
Monday, April 26, 2010      4 comments

I've just spent some time cruising through some SparkPages and am pondering a common thread that seems to run through most of our pages: "I need/want to take time for me". Why do you think it is that we feel a need to make that declaration? D... Read more
An "ah-ha" moment
Thursday, April 15, 2010      6 comments

Knowing that I have a difficult time separating myself from my "belongings" to the point that it sometimes becomes ridiculous and embarrasing - I think I've had an "ah-ha" moment today, while having lots of time to think about things during a bo... Read more
