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..

Something we were withholding made us weak, until we found it was ourselves...

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.

    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.

    Wednesday: Well, John said he was fine yesterday. Didn’t get checked out. Upset about that but can’t force him.

    Got the lawn mowed yesterday. Pleasant weather. We got rain last night – which we needed. North of us got bad storms. We fortunately didn’t.

    Hope it’s a good Wednesday.

    Tuesday: Waiting to hear back from John to see how he’s feeling. I know he felt all right yesterday, but I explained that he needs to get checked out as the adrenaline and the shock will prevent him from feeling the discomfort for awhile. So, I hope he did get checked out. **SIGH**

    Have to get the lawn mowed this morning. Cooler than it’s been, so that’s a help.

    That’s about all the news that’s fit to print from here.

    Hugs and have a terrific Tuesday.

    Monday: Well, had storms blow through here last night. Lots of rain, but we were all right.

    Thermostat is supposed to be replaced today, and hope it’s on schedule.

    Jas has PT this morning, too.

    Motivated Monday! Last on in July! Lordy!!

    Blessings and hugs
