BONNYSPARKGIRL's Recent Blog Entries


Monday, June 23, 2014

I recently read a Spark Article about keeping a journal while you are on your Weight Loss journey. Deep down I have always wanted to do this, but somehow things get "lost in translation" and I end up giving in. My many attempts have been notebooks, Blogspot and even here on Sparkpeople.
So, I have now decided to pick up where I left off, and continue marking milestones etc etc. However, I am choosing not to blog about it, but rather create a folder on my computer, and write daily entries there.
That way I can keep it personal, and if I feel like I would like to share, then it will be easier than if I had to retype it.

    Makes sense to me. I prefer my paper journals, because I like the feel and intimacy of handwritten journals, but I don't repost them. (Also, I neglected them badly the last couple of years because of grad school... no time and my hands hurt too much) but I hope to get back to it. I hope your strategy works out well for you!

    I'm not much of a blogger and journal writer either. I find what works for me is spreadsheets. Like everything, it's about finding what works for you. I hope the daily entries help you. emoticon

This is my High School story/My Matric Farewell
In South Africa we have a Matric Farewell. It is organized by the Grade 11's. We get a formal invitation to attend. Now I never had a boyfriend in school at all. My mom said she is not going to pay for a dress etc, unless I found a partner. Luckily my cousin, knew two guys, and they ended being our technically it was my first and only date in high school. Did we have fun, yes we did. I can still remember dancing to "They Just Can't Get Enough" without my shoes. The most awkward thing for me, was the waltz. But we got through it enough. I never saw him again after that....sad so sad.

Yip, it was the 80's. Take note of the big hair. I still remember being in tears at home, because my gloves went missing. Luckily they were found in time.

    Love seeing your picture! Big hair was the best back then. My kids love to make fun of my old pictures, but I assure them that it was in style!

    Yes it was, and ever since then I have never liked perms. But I wish I was that thin again.

    Cool photo! And cool that you went even though you didn't have a boyfriend at time and still had a lovely time. I never went to my prom because I had no date and the only friends I knew were going with serious boyfriends, so I didn't see the appeal of standing around by myself all evening. It sounds like you had fun.

    That's a cool background. And yes, accessories were and still are so important! I was pregnant at my senior prom, feeling ghastly, but still somewhat successful at hiding it.

    Here's a nice Johnny Depp story for you. I have a friend who worked for Disney and did a lot of the "advance work" for when Johnny would be coming in to film the Pirate series. His manager or advance person is his sister, and she became good friends with my friend. Well, here's the lovely thing - he is just a lovely person! He's as nice as can be and isn't in the least bit full of himself. So he can be all yours and still be a stand-up guy! Just LOVE that!!!

    There is a fork lift driver at work who looks so much like much like Johnny D that I snapped my head around to take a second look. The whiplash was well worth it.
