Cool cool. I like the name. :) I used to watch this show called barter kings. It's no wonder that show only lasted one season. It was kind of like Storage Wars without the storage lockers.

Hot weather is not something I like either. I think the weather is nice when it has been snowing, it is evening, and the snow outside the windows is lit up with snow flakes. I've used the barter system, too, like you did when you got your new well. I am thinking up a new user name so when you see it you'll know it is still me.

You are so thoughtful. Such a helpfulspirit. I, indeed live up north. Northern Minnesota. Four hour north of the Twin Cities. Minneapolis and St. Paul. We have plenty of water. Our water is actually really good. I had to put in a new well in 2012. In order to pay that, we actually traded a uniloader for a new well. A Uniloader is like a bobcat. It's farming equipment actually. .I wish this heat would go. It's been in the 80's and 90's here. I know, some people may think that is nice, but no, I am used to the cold. I'll complain about the heat before I'll ever complain about the cold. How has your week been?

HelpfulSpirit had MarysLastChance on her mind all day. She logged into SP to find out how Mary's week went and to wish her well and give her a virtual emoticon .

HelpfulSpirit lives in the midline of America where it has been pretty hot lately. She thinks MarysLastChance lives in a northern state and wonders if it is cooler there. Does Mary have a good water supply, from a well that is deep and cold? Is Mary in a town or city where she has city water? Helpful has well water but even though it is a deep well the water is warmer than usual because the ground has gotten warm deep down.

WonderWoman was toward the back of a crowed elevator and when more peoplejammed in she got pushed into the feller behind her. He said "Get off you tub of lard" really loud. WonderWoman was accutely embarrassed and tried not to cry but a tear did leak out onto her cheek. She wished she had a come-back but she never did have one when she needed one. She didn't have the nerve to say a come-back either. She always thought of a good one later and this one whould have been "Keep it to yerself BigNose." She hated to hurt anyones' feelings but maybe she shouldn't be so polite as to let herself be insulted ?

Many years ago, 6 years in fact, Petunia's darling husband took her to the jewelry store so she could pick out a bracelet, necklace, and earring set for her birthday. Another female customer said to Petunia, "When is your baby due?" This flustered Petunia because she wasn't pregnant. Thank the dear Lord her husband didn't hear it. Petunia started working on core exercises that very day. She vowed that if someone asked her again she would say "1 more month"... haha, not funny...soon an old man in the grocery aisle asked her the same question! Petunia answered, " Two days before yours is due." because his stomach was bigger than hers. As she lost inches and pounds she cared less and less about other people's judgments of her figure and her clothes. She dressed for her own comfort in airy, breezy, full dresses and blouses. She discovered clothing catalogs for plus sized women so she didn't have to drudge through stores and get depressed in dressing rooms. Petunia is more cheerful these days and because of that she has hopes of losing the rest of her excess pounds. By the way, a young man flirted with Petunia in the grocery store lately. Amazing!

Susan had everything. She was the life of the party. She had friends and loved ones that adored her. She has a loving husband that would give her the moon if she wanted. Yet, with having everything at her finger tips, she yearned for something else. She yearned for a healthy life.

She started the day going through her closet looking for a shirt to wear. She found an over sized blouse to wear. She was always afraid to show off her stomach. To her, it looked like cottage cheese and so unappealing. Nobody should show of their tummy. Where bigger things to hide that ugly fat. She would always say.

She found the right shirt and shorts to wear to work for the day. She looked at herself in the mirror and just shook her head asking to herself, "why and how did I let myself get like this." No easy answer, but stored up emotions that she is afraid to let go of.

Tomorrow is another day. That's when Susan will start anew and perhaps quit judging and start seeing things that other people see.

Mrs. Murphy's calendar challenges were a big focus for her. She kept repeating them because they gave her positive and motivational things to read. They showed her workout routines and how to do them correctly. As Mrs. Murphy repeated the calendar challenges day by day, month after month, and DID what they were teaching her to do, she became healthier. Positive thinking became a habit; encouraging others became a habit, too. Looking on the bright side didn't make her problems disappear instantly; she had to work at it every day. It gave her a better outlook when she started looking on the bright side. The calendar challenges made a big difference in how Mrs. Murphy felt about herself and others. emoticon

Mary Muffintop longed for a new look that she had seen in a fashion magazine for plus-sized women. Her neighbor was talking about Spark People at the PTA meeting. Mary looked at the website and joined it. She spent an hour every day almost reading the articles. The success stories inspired her to try hard to be able to fit the new look she wanted. As she did the diet and workouts she lost 1 pound a week.

Ouch emoticon thought Julie as she bent to pick up Alphonse the kittie cat emoticon . It was almost dawn. She woke up each morning when she heard the birds outside her window singing their first songs of the day emoticon emoticon emoticon . "This cat needs to lose weight and so do I.", said Julie to herself. The rest of the family still slept so she had a few minutes to herself. Pouring coffee into her favorite mug she tiptoed into the computer room and found the website SparkPeople that her doctor's nurse had gloried about. She set up her account and began her journey toward her slimmer, pain-free future.

In the early mornings May is falling asleep at her usual time because she, and the rest of her family, are natural Night Owls. May worked at night and went to night school. But now she wants to wake up in the morning. Looking in the mirror she sees her body has become apple shaped. She knows this is why her back hurts if she stands too long. Thinking sunshine will activate her she vows to herself to workout during the day more, stop caffeine and sugar, stick to her DASH Diet faithfully.

In the early mornings you can find Terra in her room getting ready for work. Today, is a difficult day for Terra, not only because the pains in her 47 year old life is coming up to say hi. Also, because of the boudoir photo shoot she just experienced. She felt pretty. Until she looked in the mirror and found that she looks frumpy and old and looking like a sack of potatoes.

Do you all like challenges?
You need all the support you can get, right, well this is something I just thought of.

I am going to challenge all of you to write a story. Hmm...right you say. This story is about you and your journey. The reason I put this challenge in the support area because it's not a challenge but more of a support.

There are going to be some rules:
You can write as much or as little as you wish.
You can only write about the day you are having. Rather it's a good day or a bad day.
The story has to follow along with what other write.
In other words, this story is about you, but with others writing as well.
