Celebrate my 5 month SparkVersary!!!!! emoticon

Time flies when you are having fun and boy has this been one of the most rewarding five months of my life. I’ve honestly only had a handful of days that I was hungry physically as well as emotionally. But I knew it was going to pass so I didn’t quit and here I am today 40 pounds less with a 100 % improvement in my attitude and stamina. The results so far has kept me focused and all my SparkFriends have kept me motivated. I know you’ve heard the same story from hundreds of other SparkPeople… so what does that tell you????

SparkPeople works if YOU work IT!!!! The tools are here, the support and motivation is EVERYWHERE!!!! If I can do it…. emoticon

In the worst physical shape I’d ever been in I joined SP the day before my 63rd birthday sending the clock backwards in time to find a healthier me that was trapped inside a broken and battered body that I’d abused because I didn’t think I was worthy of being happy.

In five short months I have learned to love myself more than food and found that every day in every way I’m getting better and better. The despair is gone as I look forward to every new day ahead and I know that I will continue to be successful because I will NEVER QUIT!!!!!

emoticonSparkPeople and all my dear emoticon emoticon

The 5 D’s of Dieting....

Friday, November 12, 2010



I came across some scribbled notes I had taken back in September about tips to help stave off cravings so with the holidays just around the corner I thought I’d share them with my SparkFriends in case you may have missed these five simple techniques.



The next time you are between meals/snacks and have a craving try to…..

Delay…. be mindful, take 10-15 minutes before you give in to your craving. emoticon

Distraction…. email a friend, make a call, drink a glass of water or do a chore.



Distance…. avoid foraging and keep food out of sight so it’s out of mind as well.

Determine… why do I want to eat? Is it emotional or physical?



Decide… again being mindful of your choice, decide what it is you really want and always record it on your nutrition tracker. emoticon

I’ve slayed the Halloween Dragon!!!

Monday, November 01, 2010


I was more than just a little bit worried about Halloween this year and kept reminding myself that most things I obsess about are never as bad as I think they are going to be BUT that didn’t stop me. In a way that was OK too because it gave me plenty of time to “make a plan”, another thing I’m really good at doing along with list-making, and as a result I was prepared. Warrior Speedy



Firstly, we didn’t buy any candy this year. I learned when visited by the Halloween Past Ghost that if there’s candy in the house I will eat it even if it’s not the stuff I like. And I will eat it all before Halloween and go get more and then buy more bags after Halloween when it goes on sale and eat that ‘til it’s gone. Bad Speedy

Secondly, this year we bought prepackaged individually wrapped single serving Halloween decorated microwavable popcorn in bulk (44 bags) and left the box unopened in the garage. It stayed unopened until Halloween night at 5PM when we took half of it to our kid’s house to pass out to our family. The leftovers will remain in the garage and can be used at a later date. Good Speedy


Lastly, I woke up Halloween morning and had lost another pound so the thrill of success out weighed the excitement of actually planning on allowing my self to indulge while Trick-Or-Treating with our five grandkids later that night. Awesome Speedy


Facing the dragon…. While Trick-Or-Treating I was able to walk a good distance with the whole family, something I haven’t been able to do for a long time, and totally enjoyed several of the smallest bite size Three Musketeers I’ve ever seen. Satisfied Speedy


It was a wonderful Halloween. On the way home I got the giggles thinking about the fact that there’s no candy at our house and I now know exactly how I’m going to handle next year and the all the years after that….. I’ve finally slayed the Halloween Dragon and I’m burning all the Jack-O-Lanterns in effigy. Sparked Speedy

    i love the popcorn idea. Really great idea. Hope I remember it for next year. I bought lots of candy I don't like, so it is in a ziploc bag in my work stuff to take there. It will just sit around here, and maybe someone at work will like it.

    Awesome blog and great idea with the microwave popcorn. I didn't buy candy either. I did however make cookies and took a plate full to the few families with kids and a couple without (around my apartment complex)then took the rest over to my daughters house and she took some of the cookies & put them out for the girls in the cookie jar and the rest she put in the freezer for later on. We went over to the church across the street and her 2 girls went trunk or treat and then they did a couple houses in their complex. emoticon So happy for you that you slayed the dragon though emoticon job!

WATCH OUT… giant potholes ahead!!!

Sunday, October 24, 2010



October is truly the month that gets the "FOOD" ball rolling at our house and Halloween is the gateway to what seems like an endless buffet through the holidays that won’t end until February 14th when Valentines Day arrives with 5 pound boxes of See’s Candy for the mother of all dessert parties. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM See’s Candy *drool*

There’s actually three birthdays in September but October just escalates with an additional five. Essentially I’ve done very well and as long as I can stay away from the stores that offer Halloween candy on every aisle, even weeks after the fact, I think I may make it through October. At least that’s what I thought I was going to be able to do *sigh*


It all started last week when my weight loss came to a screeching halt. I was still staying within my calorie range of 1200-1500 and had even upped my exercise while participating in a SparkPeople Fall Challenge… shout out to the “Shooting Stars” hey-hey!!! No biggie I thought plateaus happen I usually loose inches so it didn’t faze me. Marching on the scale finally responded… well it didn’t respond the way I wanted it to. Up a pound one day. Up another a few days later. WTF!!! The child in me crossed her arms and stomped her feet and claimed “I’m not going to change my ticker, so there!!!” Then another pound up *weep*

By now I was discouraged and that ‘ole voice began to whisper that four letter word in BOTH my ears… “QUIT” You are lying about what you weigh… just look at your ticker you big fat liar!!!! *grrrrr*


But I didn’t quit… and as I struggled with that demon to eat every thing in sight I learned more about that damaged little girl inside… I listened to her cries to be fed and comforted. She wailed so loud one night I thought the neighbors were going to complain. She acted out a couple times and got ugly with her DH but I didn’t let the pothole derail my journey *WooHoo*


Today I got on the scale again and I was up almost three more pounds… O-M-G, I am a loser, I can’t do any thing right, I’m a waste of skin, how could I possibly have thought I had any control of my life, I don’t deserve to be successful, happy, loved, healthy……. *crash*

My poor husband was sitting right there when I got on the scale and started hurling the insults at myself. The look on his face broke my heart. He was devastated and I was crushed to think that how I felt about myself affected him so much. I just couldn’t believe I’d gained six pounds in a week so I stepped back on the scale and it was up another 52 pounds… got on again down more than 100 pounds!!!! *blink-blink*

Obliviously, my scale needs an exorcism!!! I was so happy I hadn’t picked it up and threw it through a window. It never crossed my mind that there was something wrong with my scale… I blamed myself instead, as usual, and had tittered on the brink of undoing all the progress I’d made so far by giving in and feeding that hungry soul who thinks food is the answer to EVERYTHING.


My DH has been researching the purchase of a new scale as I write this blog and I’m sure we will be off to buy a new one today. In the mean time I’m prepared for whatever it says I weigh and even more resolved to stay the course no matter how many potholes lie ahead because I learned another life lesson that I can jot down in the margin of my roadmap to a healthier life style.

WATCH OUT…. Giant potholes ahead!!!

    To often I get caught up in what the scale has to tell me as well. When it is happy... and feeling positive... I lose a pound here and there. But being the bi-polar scale that it is... there are days when it is vengeful... mean... and being just plain bullish... and I find it will add on multiple pounds... or read 'E'

I can't tell you how many scales have gotten chucked... always in search of a non-judgmental one... hasn't happened yet.

    As I read the blog I thought OH NO, you can't have gained. Was so happy when i got to the part about the scale being on the blink. Yes you do need a new scale.
i have a digital one that I just love. It even stores in memory what the last weight was so you know right away what you have lost.
I would say don't weigh every day . Once a week the same time in the same undress(naked) is the best.
If you have to weigh more often, in the middle of the week is a good time. I have to confess I do that sometimes just to see what i have to do to get the weight loss for the week .
this time of year is especially hard on us foodies. With the cooler weather, wanting to eat more hardy foods. With all the holidays coming up. Now is the time to be careful of what and how much we eat. And how much we exercise.
Don't ever think QUIT again. That is a a word that should be banded from your vocabulary.
good luck on buying a good dependable scale.
Have a nice day.
Your friend, Tisha

    I bitterly hate the scale. Mine is a spring variety and is a little tempermental also. I try not to get on it very often-once a week is too much for me really but I am in the challenge so we weight weekly. I do better to weigh in once a month especially when I am staying true to my program- less head games for me. I understand where you are coming from, completely. Maybe we both need to invest in a new scale??

I can just imagine how frustrated you were! It speaks to your inner strength and desire to improve your life that you didn't give up but continued to push forward.

    Haha I want that scale, down 100 lbs! Woohoo!

I know the feeling though, this past week or so has been bad for me too, I've been fighting temptations the last couple weeks, I dunno if it's the weather change or the holidays coming (what is up with Christmas stuff in stores at the beginning of October?) or what. And I finally gave in and bought some Halloween candy. But not a whole bag. Just "enough." And now a new week is starting and I'm gonna just start over ... again. I've done it before. We all have.

You'll do it too, just the fact you're writing about your struggles is half the battle (and it helps you be accountable too.) And who knows, maybe when you get that new scale you'll find you didn't actually gain as much (or any) weight after all.

BTW I really like your blog, and I love your use of visual images, it really makes my day.

    I'm so happy for you! I only weigh once a week, first thing in the morning, almost naked with the scale in the same place each time.

Daily says SP...can't be counted on to be true weight. There's too much variation...is it that time of the month? Have you been using the bathroom regularly? Have you had more sodium than usual?...etc., etc., etc.

We gave a digital 'weight watcher's' scale. We really like it!

Have a better week, honey...and don't forget: NO MATTER WHAT there is no reason to be down on yourself!!!! Ever! "Every day in every way I'm getting better and better."
