Raspberry's Story

The raspberry is my favorite fruit, hence my username :)

This is not my first time working on bettering the ol' body, but this is the most serious.......you see, as someone looking for work, when one cannot fit well into ..... sigh ....... interview-friendly attire, well......this was my OMG moment! (Why, oh WHY are SUITS so important - gad, I HATE them!)

I have a lot on my plate right now, so I may not have a significant social presence here for now......so, I'll ...

My Goals:
A better body and overall health - and a neater appearance in suits would be a good thing, too (as much as I HATE suits) :)

My Program:
I restarted my journey using parts of Spark in conjunction with a recently completed workplace health challenge program - this seems to have done the trick so far, sooooooo - I'm crossing the ol' fingers for the future!

Other Information:
Just trying to keep in mind that old saying - "one day at a time"!

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it all back, but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! cut and paste link below

I appreciate all your comments. Even from those who have a page; but I cannot return to relay a message. I’m grateful for the response. I was blowing off steam and it feels really good to release bad emotional energy into the universe. I don’t need it. So I’ll let the universe deal with it. I’ve open the line of communication to my husband. But I will not extend it. That’s something he’s going to have to man/boy up and do. Once again –thank you all so much for your supportive and wise comments.
