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.

    Same situation here . . . . Masks required and some are protesting that it is infringing on their rights. GAH! They should work along side 1st responders and patient fighting the virus. They might have a different perspective.

    Sorry that you had a hay shortage due to the drought. BUT that’s good the stable owner found a source of hay for the horses.

    Yes, we’ve been having unusually hot weather, but today, it cooled off. Feels so good.

    Awwww, yes, Miss Lilly was 1 yr old on 03 June and switched to ‘adult’ food. She’s doing fine w/it, fortunately.

    It takes these animals so long to get used to something like a harness, but they’ll adjust.

    I HOPE that your knee feels better. I hade had both knees replaced. I am not sorry I did it, but it takes lots of recuperation.

    Well, let’s hope that the virus simmers down . And people cooperate!

    Good to hear from you!

    All the best in August to you and your family.

    Saturday: Another take out day. That’s all right. We’re gonna zoom later.

    Looks like it’s going to be nice today, rain tomorrow. We can use a little.

    And a small victory! Got an e-mail that “due to neighborhood concerns”, the community garage sale is cancelled till 2021. Well, now, who says one person can’t make a difference! Maybe the state dept. of health intervened. Never did hear back from them. Whatever! Glad for the decision.

    HUGS and enjoy Saturday!

    Thursday: Does the fun ever end? Yesterday Clara called to let us know that her apartment had flooded. The neighbor’s plumbing was clogged and it took the management 18 hrs. to respond! GRRrrrr. In the meantime Clara called a plumber and got the water turned off. Her couch was ruined, the carpet. The floor. So she has to move into a new apartment unit. We told her to be SURE they reimburse her for damages and the plumber’s fee!!! The management company should have done that. Honestly, is there any sanity left in this world!

    HUGS and wow! Friday Jr.
