Goodbye

Tuesday, January 07, 2014

As many might know, I haven't been active on Spark People for quite some time.
It isn't the same Spark--too many changes, too many "need to get points" The emphasis
is not on improving yourself or losing weight anymore. It's probably just me--I'm the one whose changed. I found a site called "Lose it" Very simple. Counts your calories down and adds your exercise in. Quite simple, no competition except myself no need to brag about about much I did today, or how many points I have.
Sorry Spark was very good for me for quite a while and then something just happened.

    I needed that break too. I needed to just focus on me for awhile. I am so sorry that I missed the chance to interact more by being gone from the site. Hugs and wishing you all the best.

    Sorry to see you leave old friend, I know your frustration, I too have quit counting calories because too hard and time consuming. My weight has creep up too. We are having quite a winter, probably same there too. Are you on F B? It takes time too but keeps me in touch with family and friends. Much good luck in 2014! Skeeter

    I'm sorry to see you go......I understand though. Sometimes, you just don't have time to do all the stuff on spark, because it takes over your free time. Good luck with the new site.

    Sorry to see you go. It's important to do what works for you, since I never saw it before, I like Spark people. I have tried others, but I enjoy playing the games and doing the points. However, it isn't for anyone. Good luck in your continuing journey.

The Way it Is

Wednesday, October 02, 2013

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference

Joke of the Day--little long, but worth the reading

Wednesday, September 18, 2013


A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended a bit more and shouted, Excuse me, can you help? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The woman below replied, "You are in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You are between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."

"You must be an engineer," said the balloonist.

"I am," replied the woman. "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of you, and the fact is I am still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help so far."

The woman below responded, "You must be in management."

"I am," replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

"Well," said the woman, "you don't know where you are or where you are going. You have risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise which you have no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it's my fault

Today's Joke

Thursday, September 05, 2013

A couple, desperate to conceive a child, asked their Minister what they should do?

The Minister said he was going to Rome," and while hes there, he would light a candle for them."

When the Minister returned three years later, he went to the couple's house and found the wife pregnant, and busily attending to two sets of twins.

Elated, the Minister asked her where her husband was so that he could congratulate him.

The wife replied: "He's gone to Rome, to blow that candle out"
