Returning again... with purpose!


I thought I had it ALL under control and could lose (and maintain) without support of fellow bloggers.


So... as you can see, I'm back up past 250. 274 as a matter of fact.

It's not the 298 I started at in 2009 -- but certainly NOT the 233 I ended off at in December 2009.

But... no despair. I've been back at Spark People since May 27th and today, at weigh-in, I had dropped 10 POUNDS!.

GO ME! :)

I'm NOT going to yo-yo again. I'm 50 years old -- I can't do that anymore. I've also set my goal at 150 -- a bit more realistic than 130, doncha think? LOL!

So... let's keep this ball rollin'!

I'm back...

And way off-track! I've gained some weight back, too, but have no idea just how much until I do a weigh-in.

I'm disappointed and angry with myself but it's my own damn fault. I lost sight of my goals and let my desire to "enjoy" and "splurge" get the best of me.

OOPS. Bad idea. Yes, I'm paying for it.

So, now's the time to kick it back into gear and get moving.

The worst part? Knowing I have to come back here and to Spark People and re-set my current weight and my goals. Embarassing, no?

Anyone -- I have to do it. I can't lie to you and I can't lie to myself.

Do or do not. There is no 'try'.

SPARK PEOPLE -- Download the First Chapter FREE!

As you may know, I am an active member of the popular healthy-living website, SparkPeople.
In an effort to help SparkPeople live out their mission of helping millions of people reach their goals and live healthier lives,
I have joined a contest they're holding called "The Spark Free Chapter Challenge."

If you have one minute to spare, I could use your help, because I REALLY want to win!

So here's the deal with the challenge…

Chris Downie, SparkPeople's CEO and founder, recently published a book called "The Spark" that offers a proven new approach to improving your health, transforming your life and reaching your goals
(for example, real people have lost over 10 million pounds using their free online program)!

People like me who are helping them "Spread The Spark" through The Spark Free Chapter Challenge are encouraging our friends and family to download a FREE chapter of "The Spark" book.
And for every person I can encourage to download the chapter, I will get an additional chance to win a $500 weekend getaway and other prizes, as well as something they offer called "SparkPoints," which also help motivate me to reach my goals.

All you have to do to help is download a free chapter from The Spark book. Nothing else.

To do so, simply go to http://book.sparkpeople.com/book.asp?u=georgiamist and click the button to download your free chapter.

If you would be willing to help me with this, I would truly appreciate it, and I also think you will enjoy reading this free chapter from "The Spark". I know I did!

Thank you for your time. I really appreciate it.
