Weigh-in Friday

Friday, August 17, 2012



Good morning my lovely sparkers! I decided to go ahead and brave the scale this morning. I am down 3lbs ~woo hoo~ was hoping for 4, so I could be back to where I started before last week's fiasco, but oh well, at least 3 of the 4 lbs is gone again! :)

I want you to know that I almost backed out! Aunt Lucy decided to show up yesterday (which now explains the 4lb bloat) but i decided that if I was going to change my weigh-in day, there was no time like the present!

I have a very busy Friday at work, so I am off to get it started! Have a great Friday ya'll! :)

    Great job on the 3 pound loss. I need to work extra hard as I gained back a couple of pounds after this crazy, stressful week. Hope you had a great Friday. Enjoy your Hunter visit tomorrow. Hugs, Jackie

Happy Wednesday Sparkers! :)

Wednesday, August 15, 2012



Good morning sparkers! I hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday! Today is going to be a looooooong work day for me, but I will survive! :) Pooh and Piglet are making their own arrangements for dinner, so at least I do not have to cook tonight! And that also means that I can eat a lighter dinner myself! ;)

I am thinking about changing my weigh-in day to Friday (as I read somewhere that it helps to prevent weekend binging), but I am a little nervous about doing it this week due to my gain last week! Like that extra day is going to make a difference! :) Anyway, I still have another day to decide. I will keep you posted.

Have a super happy and healthy hump day my friends! :)

    I was weighing in on Mondays, but now I just weigh in whenever. This way I have to be good all the time emoticon

    If you're concerned about weighing yourself early this week, you could wait to weigh yourself until next Friday. Just don't weigh yourself this week. Then again, will you miss the accountability? I don't know, it seems like any day you weigh yourself has a down side. I guess it's the fact that I'm weighing myself and not what day it falls on! emoticon

    Happy Wednesday :D I weigh in on a Monday which I hope stops me going mad over the weekend but sometimes it doesn't work and I avoid the scales.

Have fun emoticon

    I really can't figure out what day is best for me to weigh in...... so I understand where you are coming from. I do step on the scale most Fridays as the lady I work for has a digital scale... my "regular" day is Tuesday because I started SP on Tuesday.. but sometimes when I have slept in I have weighed Wednesday... and some challenges have been on different days..... so just do what works.... sometimes I have weighed a few times a week... that gets frustrating so I certainly would not recommend that. *LOL* Oh well enough of my rambles..... find what works for you!

    I know Friday wouldn't work for me because I would end up overeating all weekend thinking "oh I don't weigh until Friday, I'll eat better during the week." I weigh on Sunday just because it is the start of the week and it keeps me from overindulging on Friday and Saturday. I still tend to pig out on Sunday after my weigh in though. emoticon

    I officially weigh in on Sundays. Started that day, because I participated in two local weight loss challenges that started and ended on Sundays. Knowing that I'm going to be looking at the scale on Sunday morning keeps me really on track on Saturday! Maybe Monday would be even better. :D

    I think the perfect weigh-in day for me would be Monday.I wouldn't be able to binge if I knew that the scale would make me cry about it right after the weekend is over. LOL. Let us know if Friday as a weigh-in day really keeps you from binge eating. emoticon
Have a great day at work.

    Weighing Friday probably would be a good idea. If you are UP maybe you'll be more careful over the weekend!
Hope you have a super day at work and the time will go by fast! emoticon

****** Morning my Sparklies *****

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Good Tuesday morning to all my lovely sparklies! Having ya'll around to cheer me up, egg me on and just be yourselves is a lot like standing in a field surrounded by fireflies! No matter how deep your thoughts or how gloomy the night may be, fireflies make you smile and look around in awe.



There are so many of you that I admire and yes, even some that I aspire to be like! :) This journey towards a healthier me is sometimes difficult, but my sparklies keep me going! I just want to say thank you for posting your struggles as well as your triumphs! Sometimes it is just knowing that you also struggle to lose the weight that makes it easier for me to keep going. I guess it is the knowledge that I am not the only one who slips up and that this weight loss thing is not easy for any of us! If everybody was great at it except me, I know that I would feel bad about myself and fail.

I used to think that if I were stranded on an island that I would get skinny! That most of my eating habits would be changed because there would be noone around to influence me and no junk food around to binge on! ::Eyes rolling:: Now I know that I would just miss my family, friends and my sparklies and probably eat every coconut that I could find and every fish that I could catch and still be overweight when the rescue boat arrived!

Thanks for just being there and being you! Have a great Tuesday my fireflies! :)

    Hi Jackie,
Your support means the world to me, also. Especially after taking a big fall off the wagon this week. It helps to know that we all fall down. As long as we get back up, we'll be alright. Hugs, Jackie

    Wow, what a lovely way to that that! Thanks for being there for me, too! I would love to be able to never struggle and just accept a new lifestyle in some kind of zen-like euphoria, but some days I just want to go back to bed and pull the covers over my head! Well, since we're fireflies, let's go light up the night!

    I love this.... you are so right. I don't like that other people struggle, but it is good to know that we are not alone.
I also agree about the island, or magic pill, or "fat camp" ..... the problem with it all is when we return to the real world, or quit taking the pill or whatever.... our habits would be the same and therefore we would return to our old fat self.... this is the healthy way, this is a lifestyle change and emoticon. Sparkle away my friend. You are doing emoticon

Busy, busy bee!

Sunday, August 12, 2012



Good morning my sparky friends! I hope that you are all having a great weekend and are setting good goals for the upcoming week! I am working on mine as we speak! :)

Just a little heads up to you all about the upcoming weeks . . .

School starts back for me on August 20th! That is coming up really fast! As usual, I have overloaded my schedule (with three online courses and one in-person class) and will be so busy between work and school that I will be lucky to have time for poor Pooh and Piglet! But I really want to get through the next two (or three) semesters, so I can graduate and move towards my next goal! This is one of few things that I have started and actually stuck with! I want to have my masters by the time I turn fifty! It is just a personal goal that I have set for myself. :)

I hope that you will all understand if I only have a few minutes in the mornings to say a quick hello and update my trackers! Please do not be offended if I am unable to comment on your individual pages and blogs until the weekend! I will try to read them if time allows and I will definitely be thinking about all of you and your success!



I hope that you all have had a great weekend and are looking forward to your future success! :) - HP

What is your major? (I apologize if you've said it in the past and I forgot.)

    Hi Jackie,
Wow!! That is a big courseload with working. You must have super time management skills. What masters are you working on? For my program, I start a new class every 8 weeks. I could take more than 1 at a time but choose no to.
Hugs, Jackie

    Life happens and just so happens that you are living it full and are caught in a busy mist right now. So I won't be offended cause I know how it is. Trying be all that you are and still be everywhere you want is hard so focus on self, family and time management and everything else will fall into place. Love you HoneyB! emoticon emoticon
