Just keep running this play until I get it right.

I am updating my page per instructions from SparkCoach. I started my latest journey with SP on February 4, 2013. Although I have been losing SLOWLY, still I have lost 13 pounds.

PREVIOUS UPDATE
It is time to update my introduction! I first joined SP in January, 2009, but did not really get into it until July of 2009. I lost 23 pounds by the end of October that year. Unfortunately, I put my back out by raking leaves without pacing myself. (I guess 2 straight days of raking for 4-5 hours is not really good for you) Since that time 3 years ago I have managed to put back on the 20 pounds. My husband and I are retired and have been on several vacations. We love it, but I have managed to lose my motivation and have been making poor nutrition choices. I decided to do the South Beach diet because I know I can lose weight on this dies, and I know that I feel better avoiding the bad carbs. Today is February 4, 2013, the beginning of a new commitment for me.

Good Morning and thank you for commenting on my blog
"Just a Swingin", I really loved swinging as a child and the young woman I have seen so many times seems so carefree and happy just swinging to her own music!

I pray you have a swinging kind of day today! emoticon

Thank you for your post about the book Say Goodnight to Insomnia by Greg Jacobs. It has made a difference for me and I am still in the early days of the Six week program.
You made a difference in my life this week! Thanks!

Thanks for the salad...that's for dinner along with some tomato and left over turkey breast from last night. Yum! Really a little hot here to think about hot foods. Have a good day :)
