Hey Jenn... Thanks for continuing to write on this board. Makes me realize how long I've been fighting this battle. Was doing really well and heading in a straight line to my goal but fell off the healthy eating wagon for a while and am starting all over again. Feeling confident that this time I will succeed. Hope you are achieving your goals as well! Will keep watching this board now that I know I'm not alone :)

Hey team! I figured after 2 years not many of us still bother to look a this team anymore. I hope everyone has been reaching their goals and living a life of health, fitness and happiness. We started this journey together just over 2 years ago and I hope you have all come far.

Never quit, never give up, never stop progressing toward your goals. Always face forward and move in the direction you want to go. No matter how much you wander side to side from your path, always move forward and you'll get there!

Enjoy the Autumn ahead, it should be another beautiful season.

Here we are team, YEAR 2! I've been working my way through the 160's trying to get into the 150's which is a long way down from the 190's where this all started long ago.

KEEP IT UP TEAM YOU CAN DO IT!

I haven't made the progress I should have since 'rejoining' last year.

So nice to hear how you're doing Sylvia. Sorry to hear about your health issues and your hip though.

It's been a very hectic summer for us too but fun. We have our son & famly visiting us right now. We went to the Pirate Ship tour yesterday and the grandchildren really enjoyed that, especially the 7 year old.

Next Monday, we have our son from Malaysia & friend flying to Canada to visit for a month. We're so excited. And then our granddaughter is getting married on the 11th of Aug.

So as you can see, not just my Sparking took the back seat...my healthy eating, my exercises did as well but I do what I can when I can.

But I'm having fun :)

Wishing everyone a great coming weekiend!

Hugs

Hi all,

It's been an interesting summer. I am glad that there are some sparkers still posting here, although I don't get to any of my teams as often as I would like. It often turns into a push for time and it's exercise vs sparking. I think I need to exercise more than to spark, so that is where I go.

This has been a summer of more than I can remember in recent years. After a tough winter--3 surgeries in some 2 months, I pulled myself back together to take my life back. I taught in a summer park program where the staff undermined my efforts at every turn. Then we were in a life changing car accident that really has spooled me as a passenger and messed with my body. I have started SI injections to help out my back and with the help of my ortho, I now know that the joint in my right hip is a mess and a hip replacement is emminent. We just returned from an awesome mini-trip to StLouis and school starts again for us next Wednesday. It has been quite the season, but we have fit in as much playtime as we could between baseball games, days at the park and water park, bowling dates, camping (early on, before it got so hot) and the typical summer festivals and events. I love the summer and cannot get enough of the activity and fun stuff. It is great to have children around.

I hope that each of you are having some fun and that you are doing well with SP too.
Gentle hugs,
Sylvia

Hi everyone! Well, I'm still struggling maintaining. It's been very hard visiting family & friends...I'm over my goal and not eating healthy, not exercising like I should. But I'm aware of my mistakes and will get back on track.

emoticon and I CAN DO IT TOO!

Happy Healthy Weekend!

Hey everyone! I'm still here and I hope to see some changes for our 1 year anniversary. So many things fell by the way side as work took place of a personal life this year. I still have a long way to go.

Hi Sylvia and team members
I'm on the go again, will be attending our grandson's graduation tomorrow evening and a burial service in the morning. It's a 9 hour drive but worth it cause we get to spend time with our son and grandchildren.

Our summer so far has been hectic but great. I'm not doing too well in the health department meaning that I'm eating too much junk food and not exercising enough. But I'm aware of my problem and I'm working on it.

Otherwise, we are doing great, we had our physical and we both had an excelllent clean bill of health..the Dr. is very proud of us...so I need to keep it up.

How have you been Sylvia?

Hope to hear from other team members as well :)

Hugs

It seems as if I have lost tour general chatting thread or maybe, I never even made one for us. So here's the place to talk about anything that is on your mind from Sparking to family to new adventures or anything that you just want to say!! I'm looking forward to seeing our conversation get going!

Enjoy a busy summer Monday and thanks for checking in!!
