Tue, 18 Apr 2017 18:19:04 EST Same as Before http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6349674 So has anyone experienced weight loss stopping when you began with eliminating all sugars and carbs (other than veggie carbs) and then added some (and I mean some) of those things back in from natural sources - while keeping within the prescribed calorie range? <BR> <BR> This makes no sense to me. I know people on this program are losing weight without taking out what I did - just by staying within calorie range. Can anyone think why the scale would not have moved from last week to this whil... Mon, 17 Apr 2017 11:00:54 EST The endless journey into the navel... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6346500 So as I am learning more and more about internal things being connected to eternal things, I have marked my weight today. Twenty-two pounds down. I decided I'd like to see 190 before July 1st. The last time I saw that number was 1994.... <BR> <BR> And then I looked at my ticker. One of the markers is 181 pounds. <BR> <BR> 181. That was where I was when I dated a guy I just could not get over. <BR> <BR> Could it be that I bailed out because of this? Like in life, on me? Because every time... Mon, 10 Apr 2017 11:38:57 EST Buried Treasure??? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6316727 What-is-my-DEAL??? <BR> <BR> I have asked this of myself many many many times. Today, I got an answer I was NOT looking for. <BR> <BR> So I started a new jo...I mean, "position". The short version? I began volunteering somewhere I thought I wanted to work, and in this little package of experience is everything I ever hated about me and life and other people in general. All are represented there in one place, EVERY-DAY-I-GO. <BR> <BR> Needless to say this brings up a lot of drama internal... Wed, 15 Feb 2017 22:25:27 EST And we're back in three...two...one... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6238802 Seven and a half, really. Seven and a half months. <BR> <BR> I have been feeling that pull again, that nagging, "you need to get this right" from the peanut gallery that waves my life's to do list like a cue card in front of my face. It's okay, really. I mean, somebody has to do it. And I need to see it. And I need to get it done. So... <BR> <BR> So tomorrow I will remeasure, review, and revisit this goal which got put on the back burner again by "hi my name is ______ and I am overwhelmed ... Mon, 19 Sep 2016 23:25:32 EST Personal Revie of the Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5856583 I had a personal revie. Something I needed, and something I don't plan on going back on. <BR> <BR> I will NOT be a slave to make-up, hair care, or any other "thing" that is the "thing" of the day. <BR> <BR> I dress, or not dress, for me. Oprah, Wendy, and whoever the *bleep* else can kiss my butt. Believe me, there's more than enough room. <BR> <BR> Pucker up. <BR> <BR> ;P Sat, 17 Jan 2015 17:23:45 EST Go you. Go me. Go We. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5856015 So I'm kinda bummed that I didn't get into my calorie range today, but not so bummed because I still have the desire to keep going. In all this time I really haven't had that, and I hope it sticks around. <BR> <BR> However, since I was here a while back I have achieved one of my goals consistently, and that is I rarely get fast food anymore. I eat out at times, but Wendy's McD's, BK, all that - almost never. And that's a good thing, cause it used to be a good chunk of my diet. <BR> <BR>... Fri, 16 Jan 2015 20:05:59 EST Woooow... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5851722 ...I actually fell within my program calorie range for a day. <BR> <BR> WOAAAH. <BR> <BR> Watch your heads. I think the sky is falling. Sun, 11 Jan 2015 11:16:03 EST Gifts for EVERY Mom? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5681480 Today Amazon made me laugh. Well, I made me laugh, but it started with Amazon's advertising which reads: <BR> <BR> Gifts for Every Mom! <BR> <BR> -Fun-loving Mom <BR> -On-the-Go Mom <BR> -Crafty Mom <BR> -Home Entertainer Mom <BR> -High-Tech Homemaker <BR> <BR> And I thought, that's not every mom! They forgot the "Angry b*t@$ on wheels" Mom! <BR> <BR> ----------------------------------------<BR>----------------------------------- <BR> <BR> (The cats, however, entertained themselves with ... Sun, 27 Apr 2014 09:51:45 EST Shock and Awe (Lessons from the King) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5677941 Being someone coming from a seriously high calorie diet (mostly fast food and take-out, re- inspired by 1. my unwillingness to spend hours cooking every few hours and 2. being totally sick of sharing a kitchen with five other people) I was amazed to see just how many calories fast food (in this instance, Burger King) brings me over the 1500 Spark recommends daily. Yesterday, one BK meal hijacked my ENTIRE DAY of calories and I thought, "you must be joking!" <BR> <BR> It explained a lot, but... Tue, 22 Apr 2014 13:28:25 EST Such a BUM! ( A majorly rambling catch-up) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5676310 Man, what a bum. Looked at my goal and it was from LAST YEAR??? <BR> <BR> So, good morning from the least consistent person on the planet. (Or, at least a very competitive second. ) <BR> <BR> A goal I remembered did bring me back here, even though this has been a very slow getting-with-it morning. Cats are running around and I think, "do we have to keep going with this day?" <BR> <BR> It's not a bad day at all. Grateful, really - but noticing internal weights, (never mind external) that a... Sun, 20 Apr 2014 11:20:34 EST Sidenote: Fireflies http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4928385 While on our treck today I saw those little jars with the "fireflies" that respond to your touch on the jar and flutter around for your entertainment. I don't see much these days that really inspires me (as in, spontaneous wow thoughts) but today this little toy meant something to me. I told my husband I wanted one, because fireflies are light (and comfort) in the night, and they always seem to just float free yet say "I'm here. I'm here". Like...hope, somehow, too. Not exactly profound, but ... Fri, 15 Jun 2012 22:49:41 EST Things to Remember: CDS http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4923481 I just remembered something I noticed while working the circus. There were several much older men participating in many of the acts. So...when my brain starts the "you're too old" thing, I need to remember that, because it's not a theory, I witnessed it, for real. <BR> <BR> Good to know. Great to remember. Good inspiration of the day, and better sword against non-reality (i.e. "you can't".) <BR> <BR> So much for retirement. :) Tue, 12 Jun 2012 14:54:22 EST
