I thought I would take a bit and answer them here so as I progress I can look back at the answers. <BR> <BR> 1 - stats? - already in spark tracker <BR> 2 - How tall are you and do you like your height? 5'6" yes I like it except when I need something out of the top cupboard. <BR> 3 - A picture of thinspiration - What features do you like about this person? healthy look of the person <BR> 4 - What is your greatest fear a... Tue, 21 May 2013 12:29:56 EST 14 years is too long http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5348452 14 years ago today we lost my dad. He did at the age of 49 - leaving us - his children - fatherless at the ages of 24, 18, and 10. I always stress eat around this time of year - and last night was no exception, but at least it was only a short period of time - where before I would have drowned my sorrows with food for a week. I am sure he would prefer that next year I celebrate his life and passing with healthy food and a healthy life - LOVE YOU DADDY!!!! Tue, 7 May 2013 10:11:58 EST I have crossed that line http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5340869 I have officialy lost just over half the weight I set out to lose - It is hard to believe!!! And how did I celebrate? By deciding I could put in a large flower bed ( it is WAY more work than I thought). Tue, 30 Apr 2013 14:27:37 EST Stuck in the Middle (well near the middle anyway) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5333796 I am once again stuck - this time though it is 1 1/2 pounds away from the halfway point. I have tried eating a few more calories - a few less calories - doing less - doing more. Maybe it's my bodys way of telling me it needs a bit to adjust to the way things are now!! Wed, 24 Apr 2013 07:49:58 EST Invisible http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5316365 I have been sparking through a mobile app but not going on through the pc - I have continued to lose, but have missed the social part of the site - wish they would add that to the app - for now though I will have to log in and give some sparks to my friends! Mon, 8 Apr 2013 20:51:54 EST scales http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5225303 I am not depending on only my scale to tell if I am getting more healthy/losing weight, but it is nice to see the numbers on the scale decrease and I like doing a weekly weigh in (did I just say I like weighing myself?) With that said my scale seems so different then the other ones I have checked - My mother in laws says I am 6 pounds lighter than mine reads ( I should mention I love love love her scale LOL) and my doctors says I am 4 pounds heavier ( so I do not look when they weigh me) - m... Sun, 27 Jan 2013 08:42:56 EST Kale Chips http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5222257 I have seen them on a few cooking shows and seen a few recipes for them so I thought why not... I burnt one tray that I put some spices on...the other tray I just used salt...they were very crispy and salty..but they are very leafy tasting (of course they would be but I expected something alittle different with all the comments about how they replace potato chips). They were okay...I wouldnt make them all the time but I will prob make them again at some point. <BR> <BR> <BR> (is that really... Thu, 24 Jan 2013 21:35:06 EST I can't figure this out... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5220704 Two little girls...3 pairs of gloves each...2 freezing cold days = 0 gloves? <BR> The only thing I know is that I need to go to the store to buy gloves ... lol <BR> <BR> Anyway I finally beat that stubborn plateau - I am not sure how or what changed it but I am very happy today. I still haven't found an exercise that I want to commit to yet. I looked around today at an exercise ball, hand weights and kettle bells, but didn't purchase anything yet. Wed, 23 Jan 2013 20:41:10 EST I know why they are called monster cookies.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5212081 It's because after your car breaks down and you have to turn around with 2 screaming children in the back seat and pray the car gets you all the way home so you don't have to walk with them in the snow...those cookies seemed to come to life and call your name. I am still in my calorie range for the day but I should have had a healthier snack then I did. I am trying very hard not to stress eat this evening (was is my normal). If I can just hold off eating til morning that would be an accompli... Thu, 17 Jan 2013 20:37:57 EST slamming the door http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5209737 Wow I have lost 40 pounds - a few months ago I really didn't think that was a possibilty. So this morning I found myself thinking about how far I have to go instead of how far I have come already. So today I am making it my goal that anytime I hear that negative part of my brain telling me something is not good enough yet I am going to slam the door on that part and concentrate on how great I feel! Wed, 16 Jan 2013 09:47:25 EST ABC of me to start blogging http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5208202 I have seen a few people doing these so I thought it would be an easy no brainer first blog for me. <BR> <BR> I copied this off of a friend's blog <BR> <BR> A - Available or Married : Married <BR> <BR> B - Book: Currently reading Bloom by Kelle Hampton <BR> <BR> C - Cake or Pie?
