wake up call

Monday, April 25, 2011

Hi sparkers. Hope you're all well. I haven't blogged in a month. Been kind of down in the dumps about my weight loss. Since I reached the 40 pound down mark at the end of March, I've gained back about 10 pounds. I was invited out a lot, and didn't make the best food choices. Also have to get more exercise. I don't know why, but I just kind of let myself go. Today the scale was a wake-up call, and I need to change my ways. I know I can do it, and can get the weight off, but I just have to do what I know I need and want to do.

    Hi, I've been away fro SP for a while so just stopped by to say hello and how are things. Sorry to hear about your slip up, but that's all it is, a slip up. It's all too easy to beat yourself up over these things, but EVERYBODY slips up sometimes. You'll get back on track (know it can be hard, but you can do it!) and don't let that downward spiral suck you under anymore. :)

    Spark er up! Sparkity-spark, spark, spark, spark!!!! Getting derailed is part of the process.

Aim for progress and not perfection. After all it even took god six days to create the earth and on the seventh day he chilled out because he belonged to a really good union that Scott Walker hadn't yet disbanded.

So you had your Sunday, gal. Now put away the Easter hat and your white gloves get your sneakers on. Spring is here, get on your Sparkley Davidson and rev 'er up!

    Glad to see you back, I know how you feel it has become a struggle it seems that there is always something going on, and it always involves food and alcohol , fortunately I've been able to maintain, but I need to get rid of those 35 lbs, so I've decided that I will reach my goal but it will take a little longer. Good you re joined us because at least you know that you are not alone! emoticon emoticon

    It's a good thing you got your wake up call at 10lbs. I got mine at 40! Keep Sparking and you'll be back down in no time! Good luck! emoticon

    Good to see you back...sometimes those setbacks happen after you reach a landmark like 40 pounds lost. I don't know if it's true in your case, but it's like one says, "OK, now what?" and momentum gets lost.

New week, new opportunities!
Blessings

41 down

Saturday, March 26, 2011

Hi sparkers. Well, I'm on the move again, down 1.7 from yesterday, for 41 down. I'm so excited I can't tell you. I ate just 1230 calories yesterday, and wasn't hungry, plus got good exercise. I know this momentum won't last forever, but I'm trying to capitalize on it while I have it now. My nutritionist told me to keep it "new"--follow a plan while it works for you, and when it stops working, try something new.

My new goal is to reach 255, hopefully by the end of April, if not before. I'm at 268.1 right now. I'm just so happy to be out of the eternal 270s, for good.

    What a great accomplishment! 40+ pounds! And it must be encouraging to have maintained during your trip - that means you're making long-term changes!

WTG!

39 down

Friday, March 25, 2011

Hi sparkers, hope you're having a good morning. I'm happy because I lost another 1.1 pounds, which brings me to 39 down, just one more pound for 40. Then onwards towards 50! I want so badly to be out of the 270s for good. I've been here since July, up and down, up and down. Now with my new plan from my nutritionist, the weight is finally starting to go down for good.

maintained

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Hi sparkers. Today I went to my nutritionist's, the third and last visit that I will have with her. I was the same weight as I was two weeks ago, before I went on vacation. So though I didn't track and didn't eat according to my diet, still all the walking helped keep the weight off. So I'm glad about that. But I'm back to the plan that she outlined for me, and excited about it. Just three more pounds to 40 pounds down. It's gotta happen!

    Good for you. Vacations are hard, hard, hard on weight loss, but great for stress-reduction.

San Francisco with Cityzozo!

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Hello peeps,

Here we are in San Francisco on our first spark vacation... Why SF you ask? The hills silly! Cityzozo and I are traveling together and having fun. We have breakfast every morning at a french bistro that is lovely. We walk and ride the bus and see the sights and take pictures, drink wine and flop in the jacuzzi. Tonight's plan is a play by Pinter called Homecoming. Can't wait, then a nightcap at Blur.. funny name for a bar but you can figure it out. There is a beautiful Westin hotel bar waiting for us with plenty of action. Tomorrow's plan is the to take a cable car up to the hills in sparkpeople fashion..
Those suckers are steep.. We are walking walking walking... Over and out sparkies!
