31 Left
Jan 10th, 2007 by Anna

I’m not sure why the site is called 31 Left, and if I weren’t swamped right now I’d research. But I’m going to post about it anyway. This is a great site to make those New Year’s resolutions and to help you keep them. Go to the site, create an account (free) and post your resolution. The catch is, you also post how much and to what charity you will donate money if you don’t reach your goal or keep your resolution this year. Ouch. Of course it’s on the honor system, but something about putting things in writing and then making a promise. Wow. I absolutely LOATHE one of the “charities” but you can add in whatever charity you want. So I’ve pledged to lose 25 pounds this year, or I will donate $50 to Catholic Charities. It’s kinda funny though because it’s all to a good cause so you if you make your goal, your charity loses out. Of course you can give anyway, but then what was the point of making the pledge. Okay, I’m going in circles.

I have more than 25 pounds to lose, but I figure 25 pounds will feel REALLY good. And I can do 25 pounds. And I’ll be in at LEAST one smaller size and that will open up a HUGE portion of my wardrobe. So 25 pounds. Or $50. But probably both. Definitely both.

I feel the Spark!

Okay, I’ve been registered for about a week now… maybe a little longer, and I finally decided it’s time to say I like this site! And it’s worth posting about! I’ll post a link on the “Tools I’ve Found” page, but I didn’t find this tool. My Rosary-praying, weight-losing, podcast listenin’, family lovin’ friend, Karen, told me about it! Awesome site! Click here to go to SparkPeople.com. This is a free diet plan creater, calorie tracker, fitness program, digital social network, meal planner, advice giver, all rolled up into one. I was apprehensive at first because there is just SO much information here and you can track SO much I was more than a little overwhelmed. But I kept going back and looking at a little here, a little there, tracking a bit of this and a bit of that, and now, frankly, I might just drop counting points and go to using this site. Their planner counts calories, but also carbs, fat and protein to help you get a good balance. You can add other goals to track if you need more fiber or calcium. Whatever. It works how you want it. For every little thing you do, you get SparkPoints. You can’t do anything with them except brag about them. But it does get fun to try to build up your points! I’m really enjoying it! So thank you, Karen! If you decide to check it out, I’m AhnMyWeigh there (OnMyWeigh was taken! Phooey!). “Ahn” is a nickname of mine so it was a fun play on the name. Anyway, I don’t post to the community boards much at ALL, but say hi if you see me!

Oh, and I get 10 points for each referral, but you don’t do anything with the points, like I said. So please don’t think I’ve gone commercial on you!
