I managed to make it through "Peep Season" without succumbing to the temptation of sticky, gooey, fire roasted marshmallow peeps. This in itself is an accomplishment worthy of celebration!

Here We Go Again!
I have been struggling like crazy, trying to get with the program, failing every attempt. I just found it impossible to stay focused and on track for long enough to do anything I could call working toward my goals. I knew I needed an attitude ad... Read more

I have been trying to figure out why I'm already "slipping" so much, and/or lacking motivation. It all started with the wretched back troubles, but my back is doing much better and I am STILL not back on program! Not only that, but I'm not fee... Read more
Well, my back seems to finally be getting better, so I was able to get out for a walk today - FINALLY. I'm hoping things will continue to improve so that I can get fully on-track soon. Perhaps this little glitch was nature's way of preventing me... Read more
OWWW, My aching back!
I've been having a few bad days here (due to family troubles and self-discipline troubles) and was just getting back on track when I threw my back out. OK, didn't actually "throw it out", and I don't think it was actually my back either, lol. I ... Read more
SparkCoach Assignment: Easy Meal List
I apologize if anyone came here looking for a list of easy meals, I haven't started the list yet, am just bookmarking the page for now.... Read more
Nothing can stop me now!
OK, so I couldn't stand it and finally got back onto the scale, despite swearing I wouldn't. As (always) expected, the numbers showed a weight gain. There have been times in the past when one bad weigh-in like this would be enough to discourage ... Read more
Renewed Goals and Action Plan
1. Stop allowing the scale to dictate the way I feel and interfere with my motivation! (SCALE =
Sinister Contraption Allows Loss of Esteem)
2. Lose pounds and inches
3. Feel and BE healthier
4. Lose most of my ach... Read more
It's been a long time since I've shown my face around these parts. Oh, I've checked in from time to time, but never made my presence known. I just wasn't ready, and I knew that if I were to come back to my teams and friends, I would only end up... Read more
Slowly crawling back onto the wagon...
You may have noticed that my last blog entry was on July 4, 2009. That was a nasty decade though...glad I get a fresh start! And it's about time, now that January is nearly over with, I'm really feeling an urgency to make things HAPPEN, and th... Read more
Motivation is SO important to stay motivated! (who knew?)
Keeping this short and sweet. I have been allowed "stuff" to keep me preoccupied, and haven't been doing my usual "daily SP stuff". I'm having a flare-up of an old medical problem (digestive system), I can't hike because I broke my toe, and t... Read more
Banished SCALE: continued
By now we all know all about my obsessive personality. Not OCD, because, although I do obsess, and my thoughts may become consumed by the obsession du jeur, I am not quite obsessed enough to become compulsive about ACTING on it, I just spend WA... Read more
SparkPeople - what's right with the world today!
The outpouring of support I've gotten here is just amazing! I have a lot of people to thank, and plan to do just that, but it will probably take me awhile to get to everyone. For now, I just wanted to let everyone know I "heard" you, and appre... Read more

I'm sorry - I just can't do this any more
Maybe I haven't given up completely, but I've become obsessed with losing weight, and it just isn't happening. At ALL. This means that each and every day I feel like a failure, and I just really need to take a break from that. At this point, ... Read more
