If at first you don't succeed....... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5212101 Try, try again <em>381</em> <BR> <BR> My BFF from high school just started her blog on here. That has encouraged me to try, try again <em>9</em> Thu, 17 Jan 2013 20:52:53 EST Trying to figure it out again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4348067 If I can figure out this website, I'm going to try to check in on a daily basis and get motivated to loose 10 inches from my waist. I'm currently going to the chiropractor and hope to soon be able to start a routine exercise routine. I look forward to learning some delicious, new healthy recipes too. <em>250</em> Thu, 7 Jul 2011 20:50:54 EST January 24, 2010 I'm baaaack! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2790089 <em>213</em> <BR> <BR> OK...I don't give up that easy. My BFF, Linda, and I have decided to give the Beck Diet a try. There is a book and a workbook that we bought (I bought the CD and the workbook). <BR> <BR> I'm now on day 2. <BR> <BR> Here's my plan (I'll try to attach it to this post) <BR> Goals: <BR> Get Healthier <BR> Stay Healthier <BR> Look Good In Jeans <BR> <BR> The 2 Diet Plans I Have Chosen (OK...3) <BR> 1.

Sun, 24 Jan 2010 15:45:14 EST Yep...here I am again in all my glory (-: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2283482 So many temptations and so little discipline. <BR> <BR> My goal this time is to learn discipline to combat my compulsiveness. The "If I want it I get it. Don't tell me I can't" attitude is hard to break. If I try I get aggravated and irritable. Got to learn that control can be my BFF.

(ha...get the pun). Really though, I haven't given up. I've been weighing every Monday morning faithfully whether I like it or now (since October). I'm just trying to be more aware of how much and of what I'm eating and I've really cut wayyyy back on Dr. Pepper (my drug of choice). <BR> <BR> Good luck and hang in there to all my buddies that read this. Mon, 21 Apr 2008 14:07:05 EST Monday, August 27, 2007 I'm back and ready to go again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=719446 I have struggled for years now with keeping motivated. For the life of me, I don't know why this should be so dadgummed hard. I'm not getting any younger and I'm sure as heck not getting any healthier by not sticking to a healthier eating/exercising plan. <BR> <BR> I'm back in the saddle today and I'm going to do my best to focus more on keeping mentally focused and determined on my quest to get rid of this extra 50-55 lbs FOR GOOD and I'm going to focus on loving my new (current as of rig... Mon, 27 Aug 2007 12:48:57 EST "Ready, Set, NO" http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=369077 I've been posting quite a bit lately on the Sparkteam I started recently called "Ready, Set, NO". It can be found in the "challenges" section of the team section. I hope anyone that reads this will come visit the forum and join in on the challenge. Tue, 9 Jan 2007 22:27:35 EST Bad Ingredients http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=364056 January 7, 2007 <BR> <BR> This is what I wrote in my Team ("Ready,Set,NO") challenge: <BR> <BR> "OK...so today I was watching Dr. Oz on tv. To make a long story short, he said to go through your pantry. Look at the first 5 ingredients. If the words "enriched" or "partially hydogenated" or high fructose corn syrup (or other sugars) are part of the first 5 ingredient, get rid of it because of what it can do to your body. <BR> <BR> I'm still in the process of going through my pantry and am s... Sun, 7 Jan 2007 15:05:02 EST January 4, 2007 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=358904 I wonder if I'm just not a lost cause. I can't seem to stay with any plan. I feel like I'm obsessing about losing weight. My sister tells me to just not think about it. I think it's ingrained in me now. To my defense though, I wonder if I wouldn't be much worse if it weren't for my obsession. <BR> <BR> So....I have not had any Dr. Pepper today (mainly because the vending machine was out)....but to my credit, I do know where other vending machines are BUT did not attempt to go there.... Thu, 4 Jan 2007 13:35:49 EST Starting again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=205658 OK...I even laugh now when I tell someone I'm going to try to watch my calories. I wish I just wouldn't say anything to anyone but I can't keep my big mouth shut. Oh well...I'm starting again. I'd like to keep my calories around 1600 and would like to find an activity buddie. Guess I just might have to do it myself. <BR> <BR> I have 11 1/2 weeks until my birthday. If I lost approx 1.75 pounds per week I could be 20 pounds lighter by then. After that if I averaged .75 pounds per week ... Wed, 5 Jul 2006 13:36:33 EST
