vacation looming

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

we are leaving for florida this friday and i'm nervous as a long tail cat in a room of rocking chairs. i worry will i be able to watch what i eat? will i exercise? and snacking is a must on the drive, will i make the right choices? but i do believe i will. i have all the tools thanks to sp and i have shopped with all this in mind. i have apples, grapes, and quakes(my altime fav), i also plan on packing pb and j. just in case. we always stop in this one town and get breakfast on the way. i'm thinking already what i can order. as for exercise i plan on walking on the beach and down the street. it is a closed community so that is not a problem. i think i have this planned. but we all know what that can be like...plans change. oh well. i will survive this little trip and it will work out. i may not have a loss next week but i will not gain. i just won't have that as of yet. i will be weighing in on thursday this week, so till then keep sparking.

  


GOOD MORNING

Saturday, February 14, 2009

AS I SIT HERE CHECKING EMAILS, BANKING, AND SPARKING, I MUST SAY SPARK PEOPLE IS WHERE I HEAD FIRST. I HAVE MADE THIS MY HOME PAGE AND LOOK FORWARD TO EACH ARTICLE AND MESSAGE. I USE THE NUTRITION, FITNESS, AND SPARK POINTS PAGES DAILY AND NEVER MISS A DAY. MY WEIGHT IS DOWN NOW 8LBS AND I FEEL WONDERFUL. I'M WEARING MY JEANS AGAIN AND SHORTS I HAD PACKED AWAY FIT. THAT MEANS NEW/OLD CLOTHES THIS SPRING AND NO NEED TO PURCHASE MORE. THINGS ARE GOING WONDERFUL. OF COURSE THIS IS A NEW DAY WHICH MEANS NEW CHALLENGES BUT I FEEL CONFIDENT I CAN DO THIS. THE TOOLS HERE ARE WONDERFUL AND EASY TO USE AND I HAVE LEARNED TO NAVIGATE MY WAY AROUND WONDERFULLY. SO UNTIL NEXT TIME KEEP SPARKING PEOPLE AND TAKE EACH DAY AS IT COMES AND DON'T RUSH AHEAD.

weigh in day

Friday, February 13, 2009

yes, i must say this is going to be a great day. i'm down another 1.8lbs this week. can we say woohoo??? that makes me at 8lb loss since starting spark people on dec. 31. i'm so proud of the steps and accomplishments i have made to date. i must say i'm never hungry and i love the exercise. i don't think i would of been ready for this in my younger years, which is when i should of taken on this change, but i do so enjoy the walks, and strength training. i must say thankyou to cat once again for getting me to this site and all the great people i have encountered along the way. the message boards a wonderful and they let me know i'm not alone. till next time keep sparking.

last chance before weigh in

Thursday, February 12, 2009

here it is again the last day before a weigh in. sometimes it seems the week just flys by and sometimes it seems to drag. i guess it matters how my weeks are going. if i'm on schedule and doing what i'm suppose to it seems to take a long time for friday to arrive, but let me be not do so great and wow it is here before i can even blink. lol. i guess that is why we should treat this as a lifestyle and not a d i e t. that way we are always on the right path. whether we eat cake or carrots we are aware of what we are doing and meant for that to happen. with me it seems evenings are the worse. i have curbed the urge the last couple of nights but i have to tell you it is a work in progress and i have to actually talk myself out of heading to the fridge or cupboard. i seem to have control all day long but let the sun go down and i turn from jekle into hyde. i guess that is why this is a work in progress and will be for sometime to come. i;m happy with the results i've seen so far, i'm down about six pounds, four inches, and my clothes and such feel loose and comfortable. i wore a belt to work yesterday and that is a first. next i might even tuck in my shirt, oh the glory in that. lol. oh well till tomorrow guys keep sparking.

    You are so right. It is about changing our relationship with food forever. That is why I am not dieting. lol See my page for more about that.
I also have the same problem at night. It is when I am settling down to wind my day down to get ready to head for bed. If I am watching TV when a commercial comes on I head to the fridge. Not cause I am hungry but because it is a habit. I am starting to notice my food triggers and I am beating them more and more.
You well too. Just stay away from the guilt cause it can ruin all your hard work.
Keep on keeping on.

last point to next reward

Sunday, February 08, 2009

i don't usually blog daily but needed this one point for my next level on spark points. i know that sounds horrible to only blog for this, i do blog regurally i just try not to blog about nothing of importance if i can help it. this to me was very important. seeing my points move to the next levels means i'm doing all i can to help myself. if i don't do anything the sparkpoints don't move. if i do all i can they soar. i love this site and i feel i have to use all that is available to me and more. thanks guys for all this info and help. and till next time keep sparking.
