One of my Spark friends had this on his status (4/28/2016) -- THENEWMICHAEL "When it comes to measuring progress, the mirror is a better instrument than the scale."
WOW!!! That is something we all need to take to heart!

JOHAL52 is still in a holding pattern over life. But that's okay--sometimes holding patterns can lead to growth--it's up to me :) -- Her status for 2Aug11 -- A small comment that speaks volumes.
CATINCJ Never set your goals at some else's pace or evaluate your performance by someone else's standards. Added 2May13 from her feed that day.
To exercise more, get more toned, and get to a healthier weight. I would like to stave off any joint problems in legs and hips.
Another goal which I have is to get rid of a lot of the "stuff" I possess, way more than I need to have.
Portion Control - although I haven't been real successful in doing this, I am more aware of what portions are and try to stick with them most of the time.
I use the nutrition tracker and follow no particular weight loss diet, just try to get more freggies, less carbs and fat. I have been customizing the "my favorites" list to include the foods I use the most. I have been also making use of the exercise tracker, getting at least 10 minutes of cardio every day. I try to do some strength trainig 3 days a week.
I live in Northeastern Montana. I work more than full time at a desk job. I spend way too much time on the computer...
Jan, 2016 -- All of this still holds true.
Am a cat person. Like to knit, sew, quilt, garden -- but don't seem to get much of them done.
2/24/2013 -- Several fiber craft people have been meeting during lunch hour once a week to work on projects, visit, and show off our latest projects. We also share techniques when someone has a problem with their project. Some are also starting into spinning using drop spindles.

Haven't looked at my page in a long time, so I had no clue that I had a new comment on it so you'll probably not remember even commenting on my page more than a month ago but I thought I should write back anyway. :) I have no intention on leaving the site, or giving up on it exactly, I just know I'm not one that will ever have tons of comments on my blogs, and thats cool. I don't come to SP to get comments on my page. I come here because I need to loose weight and being around other people trying to loose weight helps. :)
Besides, I have facebook groups that I use for the bulk of my commenting/social stuff. ;)
Maybe someday I'll be a featured blog, and then I'll have more people paying attention than I'd probably like. lol

"Three of the most powerful words in the English language are 'I AM RESPONSIBLE.' It's tough to do, but when the day comes that you can say those words, believe them, and mean them, it will be the most liberating moment of your life. Taking responsibility for all of your results, for better or for worse, is taking back your power to create results in your life."
Its up to you to make your goals and dreams a reality! Take responsibility, and do your best each day to make progress. You are totally worth the effort, you know!
I hope your week has been great so far.
