WE can do this!!!

Even though I'm proud of the 40+pounds that I've lost since I've been on sparkpeople, sparking has improved my life in so many other ways that the mere fact that I've lost weight doesn't seem as significant (even though it is, for health reasons!). I'm just as so happy to be part of this wonderful community of friends sharing a similar journey!
You know what made the difference for me? The 5% Challenges . . . Summer, Fall, Winter, now Spring! They are awesome!

It was so good to hear from you! How are you doing with your program? I hope you are sparking along! It has been a rough week. My father-in-law had a blood pressure of 79/52 Monday evening and was hallucinating, so we rushed him to the hospital. He was admitted and they did all kinds of tests. It turns out that he had taken too many blood pressure pills, was severely deficient in vitamin B 12, and he was dehydrated. It was pretty scary, but we think he will be ok. That and being on vacation have thrown me off my program, but I'm ready to get back to sparking! emoticon

That would be a good idea, but I don't have a play list, the only music I have is what is on the tv radio station.
