Welcome to the gang, we are a very friendly & supportive group of Sparkers so come on in and feel at home here. Drop in for ‘A Natter’ anytime or join in our Challenges. We often get together for the odd Sunday lunch, the first of which was in 2009 in Telford, one was in Feb 10, in Birmingham, Nottingham in May, Telford in September. Our last was in Nuneaton in November 2010, which was really great. Take a look at the ‘Sunday Tucker’ topic & also my blog for 22/11/10 to see what we get up to. ( Due for the next one 27th Feb in Nuneaton again) Each July for the past 3 years, Pete (DH & also CATMAN124) & I have organised the UK Main Team Party in the Park at Coombe Abbey and although the gatherings have only been small so far, we are hoping that as an annual event, it will grow & grow. Much love Jude x UK Midlands Team Leader
Hang in there chicka we all have our off days that seem to just tear us down. I know I face obstacles and challenges every day. Sometimes it is the kids or the house. Others it is not reaching for that bag of Doritos or not having a second can of pop. It gets hard but just keep with your goals. Remember you are in control of what you can and can not do. One of my fave quotes from a college basketball coach is " Do not let the things that you can not do stand in the way of the things that you can" Keep your chin up. From your info you seem like a strong gal and can do anything you put your mind to. Good luck and have a great day!
Dress shopping was fun and was even better when I had dropped some weight. There were many more dresses that seemed to be a possibility and that looked really good. I had a very tough time picking just one. 2800 days ago
