Hi!

I'm Kristina and am joining the team after a former team were toxic toward my crazy life. From June 1st through the end of this month have and will continue to be crazy. I've had a loss in the family and traveling across country for the funeral, lost internet for 2 months, dealing with difficult tenants, trying to sell a house, trying to get another house up to par with things that need to get done, etc etc. Yet, I was told "You don't care about your health. You don't understand our team." I was actively participating til life went upside down. I love being a part of a team but I don't want to be made to feel like Spark is more important then my every day life. Sometimes life gets in the way and I don't have time to be active.

In the last 6 weeks I've gained 11 pounds. I'm completely disgusted and upset about it. HOWEVER, I know what caused all of it and I'm holding myself responsible for it. Yeah, guess what when you eat out constantly and sit on your butt (or are completely distracted by so much going on) eating healthy & exercising go on the backburner. Well, that's been life for me the last 6 - 8 weeks.

I WILL GET BACK ON TRACK

Hello! Thank you for the welcome..
A lot of you may know me. My name is Louise. I live in Florida. I have been putting on some lbs. lately..I think due to age? It cannot be my eating of junk food..it just cannot! lol
I have started tracking what I eat ...I didn't realize how many calories I had been consuming. This is a great site for controlling the future eating habits :) I am trying hard to stick with it..I want to feel better! I wish you all much success!

Hello all! I'm so glad that I found stitching friends here! Well, I'm 19 (almost 20) and I love to stitch! But honestly, what I need here is motivation. I'm currently 86 kg and I need to reach around 60 kg to keep healthy. I hard to resist the temptation of food, whenever I get stressed, or whenever I feel there's something I need to celebrate.

My biggest problem now is that I definitely need to lose weights. I found out that this heavy body is making me slower to do tasks (home and school), hard to concentrate, and therefore I lack of time. Not only lack of time, I also lack of strength and stamina. With this condition, even when I get some spare time, I can't use it for something I like (stitching and writing) because I'm just exhausted.

I know when I exercise more, it seems that I have more energy. But the problem is what I mentioned earlier, I lack of motivation as well. I don't know how to keep consistent in doing something! In stitching, I have nearly 10 work in progresses. In weight loss journey, you know, it's like a devil circle for me. :( Do you have any suggestion?

Oh yes, Cubie, I definitely have startitis!! I am much better at starting a new project than finishing. I have 4 projects I am actively working on now, but I would be totally embarrassed to tell you how many WIPs I really have. emoticon

It's Friday! Yeah! I'm looking forward to stitching this weekend.

Hi Yall,
I am restarting SP this last month though have been on for over a year. I have a long way to go so that only means one thing, more time to stitch. Currently working on about 5 projects right now. Does anyone else have that startitis problem? I fall in love with patterns so fast then some take me forever to complete. Aw well. Have a great day and happy stitching

TODAY IS LIFE THIS IS NOT A DRESS REHEARSAL

there is no cause when there is no effect km

i can do that, but not on a tuesday
for that is my day of thrust in the opposite direction -
off the starboard bow
over the hurdles,
and down the shute.

last is just the slowest winner. c.hunter boyd

people often say that motivation doesn't last. well neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily. zig ziglar

Hi! I have been on Spark faithfully since June 1st. I joined this team last night but didn't get a chance to post my hellow.

I live in Boston and work at a public library. It seemed when I started working at the library almost 10 years ago, I started to put on the weight. I am moving around more at this job than my prior job but something hasn't settle right with me for some reason. Unfortunately with the economy the way it is, I am stuck for now.

I'm in a new decaade now so I really want to get in better shape so that the next decade will be full of good things. I want the better shape to include eating better, exercising and just feeling better about myself.

I am currently stitching a teaching piece from Susan Greening Davis at Celebration of Needlework called Shina's Tote. Other WIP's (works in progress) include Lizzie Kate's Double Flip-its and a teaching piece by Julie Norton that is a huck towel with hardanger on it. I got really going with Shina's Tote lately so I have concentrated solely on that.

I am not a fast stitcher either but I am particular about my backs and I get distracted easily at times. I have been stitching officially since 1987 but I did a little needlework with my grandmother when I was about 9 or 10.

Happy Stitching everyone!

Mary emoticon emoticon

Hello all! I just signed up with SparkPeople this week, so I'm definitely new at navigating this website. I live in middle Tennessee with my husband and our 10 year old son. I enjoy reading and cross-stitching (I wish either of those activities could count as exercise!).

Unfortunately, I don't stitch very quickly. I just finished a piece by 4myboys and am working on one by Drawn Thread. I have several other in-progress pieces stored away as well.

I have plenty of weight to lose, but I'm only interested in doing this in a reasonable and balanced way. Please remind me of that if I complain about my weight loss being too slow!

Hi,

It has been pretty quiet this week on Team Stitchaway! I'm Michele and I live in Central Fla. with my DH. I love stitching. I usually only do large projects though, so don't accomplish many during the year. I just picked up from the framer Ginger & Spice's Canadian Sampler which took me over a year to complete. I have had other things interfering though - our youngest son has testicular cancer and went through 11 months of treatments so DH and I were in CNY for 11 months and came home in April. We are going back north July 2 as DH now has prostate cancer so we're getting a 2nd opinion at Roswell Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY. We may or may not have treatment there....we'll see. It's all in God's hands.

Well, that's a quick intro on me - what about everyone else! Have a great weekend! emoticon
