I don't have Instagram, but I wanted to take part in the Photo A Day Challenge.....so here goes!!
DAY 1 - LIGHTS
I have had so much on my mind lately, that I haven't gotten around to putting up any Christmas Decorations. This was always something me and my mom did every year, at her house. This year, with her in hospital, it just hasn't felt right doing it without here. However, I though I had better check that the Christmas Tree Lights work......and they do.
I guess, in the same way, if what you are doing to loose weight, is not working, then I guess it is time to do something new or different.

You wake up in the morning, and wondering what the day will bring.....and things start going in the wrong direction, the minute you open your eyes.
Yes, you set your alarm, with the good intentions of waking up early and going for a walk.......and, you oversleep because you didn't charge your phone, the weather is not playing ball ....excuses, excuses, excuses.
You have such good intentions, but you let others dictate to you. Remember, you live in your body, not others.
Don't let your past failures bring you down. Remember they are in the past, and shouldn't deter you from you future goals.
I know there are times that you want to give up.....just keep you eye on the prize....and that is a healthy new you.

Three sisters, upto no good. Look out on Halloween night, they might be after you.
Betrayal is her middle name. She will tempt you with Turkish Delight and Hot Chocolate, but nothing she offers is for free.
1 Pretty girl and 7 dwarfs were her undoing.....no amount of poison apples could stop True Love.
Her two evil sisters made her out to be the bad one, but in the end, and with the help of a Wizard, The land of OZ was safe once again.
Her undoing was a Country girl from Kansas and her 3 unusual friends. Lets not forget the water. However, her and her flying monkeys did try to rule the day.
And lets not forget the youngest of them all. Totally loyal to her friends, Harry and Ron. A talented which, with brains.
These are just a few of the movies I have seen that involve witches. My favourites of course are the good witches, especially Hermionne. Enjoy your trip through my Halloween Page.

My journey so far has been sort of like a rollercoaster.
I have joined Weighless, so many time......and yes I did loose weight......but as usual, life gets in the way.
This is the third time I have joined Sparkpeople, and I must admit it is the best thing that I have done in a long time.
I was active until Grade10, and that's when I started picking up weight. I remember weighing over 75kg in Matric.....and now I wish that is what I weighted.....but for a them 17 year old, that was A LOT.
My weight slowly picked up through the years, and then I met, who I though was the man of my dreams. He accepted me for who I was, but I refused to see all the tell tale signs. We got engaged, and I then joined the gym, wanting to loose my excess weight and look good for my wedding.
That never happened, and even though I continued to go to gym, food and drink was my source of comfort.
Forward to 2012. I now put myself fully in Sparkpeople.....and even though I haven't lost what I want to loose, I know I am with a group of people, who know exactly what it feels like to be overweight.
What an amazing support group. This is now my forth round of BLC, and I am learning news thing everyday.
Thank you Spark, for putting the Spark back into me wanting to loose weight.

Day 2 of 100 Days To Weightloss Challenge, we had to make a declaration on how committed we are. Here is my declaration:
"I hereby declare that from this day, I will make positive choices towards my lifestyle. I am not going to let others deter me fropm achieving my goals."
Part Two was to do at least one thing that demonstates I am trury committed, and then write it down.
I have always had a problem with drinking my water, opting to drink a cup of coffee instead. So, how I got around this, was, fill up my water bottle when I got to work....this wasn't hard....as I walk to work, and it is now summer.
So my water intake has got up to my 8 glasses per day, and my coffee intake has decreased from over 6 to under 4.
I will admit that my journey this round hasnt been easy. More and more of my joints are becoming painful, and this is only because I am overweight. I think, where I am needing help, is what exercise do you suggest, except for walking (which I already do), that doesn't put pressure on my knees, and arms.
