Back in the Saddle, again...
Shalom! Just kidding, Hello there.
Excited to be back. I took a month long hiatus from Spark People due to the Jewish Holidays. I made the personal call that tracking daily would only add, not subtract, from the already stressful and he... Read more
Absolutely Horrible Eating Week
When I blog, albeit rarely, I try to impart some message that not only reflects my honest thoughts, but will hopefully reach others as well. This is not one of those blogs. This is a purely selfish ranting blog. Sigh.
This week has be... Read more
Losing Weight for Weddings; I'm Not into It
I write this blog because, and I don't want to jinx this, my sister is in a relationship that is getting fairly serious. So serious, in fact, that it's likely it will culminate with an engagement and marriage. Yeah, I'm psyched.

Maintaining: A Mental and Physical Change
I always assumed that when I reached my maintenance weight , I would jump for joy. It took me a while to get here, and now I've done it! Woo hoo!
Alas. I've spent so much time trying to lose weight, it's hard to get used to the fact that... Read more
Let's Get Real
In my opinion, getting real is the secret to success. When I say "get real," I mean get real about who you are, what you're about, you're setting, and in general where you are holding in your life. For me, that means I'm a married working mom ... Read more
First Blog and Confession and Revelation
I have not written a blog in two years, so in my book that counts as a first blog. Reading other blogs frequently helps me. Some blogs inspire, some make me laugh, some give me good tips, and others give me the opportunity to give. I am alwa... Read more

Well, I have had a pretty interesting week. Well, I should qualify that statement by saying that this week was emotionally interesting, rather than eventfully interesting.
Last weekend the eating was pretty, pretty, pretty bad. I ate ab... Read more
Managing the Holidays
Yesterday, I stayed within my calorie range. You might ask, pray tell, why is this such a big deal? Yesterday was a major Jewish holiday called Purim. Without getting into too many details, Purim is a holiday where we celebrate the fact that ... Read more
Guess what? It's Normal to Kvetch
To begin: A rant.
One of the things I HATE being told is, "Lose weight until you think you look good." That is probably the absolute DUMBEST thing to tell a woman in her mid-twenties. Does anyone here really, truly love everything about t... Read more
I Did It!
Probably a lot of you are clicking on this blog because of its alluring subject. "What did she do?" you're thinking. Was it lose 100 lbs? Reach her goal? Hike Mt. Vesuvius (sp?)?
No! It was going to my in laws for the weekend and endin... Read more
