I'm celebrating my 5 year anniversary with Spark People. I've lost 54 pounds thanks to motivating and supportive Spark friends like you! I have some more to lose but am grateful for where I am because of things you've shared during your journey! Thank you so very much for being there!
Thank you for joining me at my â€śFriday Happy Hourâ€ť blog, and I hope you'll make them a regular part of your Friday afternoon routine. I am so very happy that they bring a smile to your face, and a giggle from your belly! The Cole Slaw cartoon was my favorite of the bunch too - I saved the best for last! That is precisely the intention for which they are created, and I welcome and love reading every single one of your comments and feedback. As long as you keep coming, Iâ€™ll try my best to keep you rolling on the floor with laughter! Iâ€™ll see you next Friday!
Thank you for deciding to come and visit my page today, and to read my "The Positive Side of Discouragement" blog! I have reached a plateau on my weight loss again, and I have been trying to understand and get past it.
I sometimes have difficulty facing Monday mornings because I know it's the start of a whole week ahead, but the last few weeks have seen no perceived progress, and I was beginning to become quite discouraged. As the week wore on, I thought others might be having the same difficulty, too - and so as I mulled things over in my head this blog evolved.
I do hope that whenever you are feeling discouraged, you'll remember to stop and search for the "positive side of your discouragement".
I hope it helped to put some things into perspective for you too, and gave you a new perspective - along with a positive spin on your day to help you finish your week with renewed spirit.
We had to stay this year due to my mom falling and breaking 2 major bones. She fell on 3/15 and just the past Sat. was discharged from rehab. Will be going to outpatient rehab for 4 weeks yet. After 3 trips home in 4 months for 3 family deaths & our son developing major blood clots, it's been a tough yr. So we are "learning" how to stay cool in this heat. I cleaned part of our house today while helping mom with going up and down steps & daily cares. Would love to head out for a couple weeks camping but won't happen this summer and the future is uncertain.
