LOST - The End

Sunday, May 23, 2010

I'm a Lost devotee and just watched the finale. I'm sure there will be a lot of comments on whether fans liked it or didn't. I thought it was perfect! It left me uplifted and happy --- only a little sad that this show is over...

    I liked it too! Although I know I will feel a litle "Lost" when I really realize it is all over! If you want to read some interesting comments, there is a Team on here called Lost Island and Others and then go to the season finale thread. Makes for interesting reading!!

    I'm glad you enjoyed it! I was disappointed last night, and then I woke up feeling like I was coming to terms with the finale. Now that my day has progressed, I'm more confused than ever! LOL! That's LOST for you I guess.

    I was searching through sparkpeople blogs to see if anyone would say anything about it. I watched it too. It was bittersweet.

One pound never looked so good!

Saturday, May 22, 2010

The last couple of weeks have been no weight loss, as if my body were resisting my next significant goal. But, this morning I was doing the happy dance after I got off the scale. I lost just a pound, but that pound means I have left the BMI Obese category and now live in Overweight land! Sort of ironic that I should celebrate being overweight... as they say, it's all in the frame of reference.
Now, it's a long way to my next goal that I'm tracking in my get healthy plan; so I need to stay focused and keep my eye on the prize... a healthier me. In the meantime, I need to pick a reward for attaining goal number 9 in my 14 goal plan.
Thanks to everyone for their support and encouragement along the way. We can do this!

    I know exactly what you mean! 1 lb can make all the difference in the world especially when the scale doesn't seem to budge! Don't forget about inches though! Last year when I was "stuck" at a weight I took my inches and couldn't believe how much I had shrunk!! LOL! Keep up the fabulous work! You deserve whatever reward you come up with!!

Just a wonderful day

Sunday, May 16, 2010

Long walk with my friend and our dogs
Sunday paper with dark roast coffee
Cruising a garden center
Planting a bird's nest spruce in the garden
Sitting on the deck with binoculars watching Baltimore orioles, finches, swallows, robins, crows, etc., do their aerobatics and mating dances
Listening to the bullfrogs in the pond
Savoring sweet figs
Feeling the sun on my back as it starts to settle in the West.......

Something is different this time

Saturday, May 15, 2010

I seem to be able to recover more easily from incidents or days when I am not eating healthily. In the past, an incident of overeating or poor food choice would be a trip wire to a continuing downward spiral until weeks/months later I looked myself in the mirror and started "dieting" yet again.
I've had a few times since starting SP that I've not followed my food plan. The next day, I'd weigh myself, give myself a little pep talk and get back to the plan. This week, I had a couple of days in a row that I didn't follow the plan the whole day. On day 3, I was a little panicked that I was losing control. BUT, I calmed myself down ("this is your life for the rest of your life"), remembered what is past is past and am now back on plan for 3 days.
Bottom line, I seem to be learning better coping skills in dealing with food and what it has meant to me in the past. Thank you SP and all my SP contacts!

    I am SO glad you found SP! I just reread your SPage and you said that you will lose 30 lbs and then fall off the waon and then gain back and then do it all over again....well now you are at 30+ but you have learned that it is a life long journey and a few slip ups are not the end of the road but just a quick detour! You are doing fabulous and I m so proud of you! Keep up the good work! I know you can do it this time!!!!

    That's great to hear - I think it's not the falling over we need to focus on but the getting back up again.

Trip to Fenway

Thursday, May 13, 2010

I was part of the Fenway Faithful yesterday:


First time I had to wear gloves to a game. It was cold ---- brrr! But we had great seats in the Pavilion section, and I got to see Time Wakefield pitch his 2,000th career strikeout. Our boys didn't win, but they made a good run at it in the 9th inning. A fun day. Next game for me is in August. Hope I don't have to wear gloves then! Of course, they say "be careful what you wish for"....

    Even if we get skunked it is hard to have a bad day at Fenway! Glad you got a chance to go.

    Awwwwwwwwwwww-that is so cool (no pun intended!) I love Wake, saw him in spring training, he was holding someone's baby while we were taking pictures, he's just a nice guy, down to earth-so glad you went! Sox come here to Cleveland in june so have to get some tickets for my Son's Birthday. Hopefully we won't have to wear gloves but the breeze coming off the lake, you never know! I always get goosebumps when I hear The Star Spangled Banner- emoticon emoticon-Kathleen
