Recouping . . .

. . . . thanks to you wonderful Sparkers. Several kind and bracing comments on my self-pitying blog made me re-think my day and get on with it. SO - Yesterday: stopped moaning about my bad weekend - did extra exercise - took care o... Read more

Very disappointed in myself . . .

A very bad weekend. No point in going into details - a weekend away with a friend and more food than I have had for many weeks sums it up. I thought I was prepared and I don't how I let it happen. All I can do is put it behind me and get back... Read more

Plodding on thanks to SparkPeople

I donít blog enough Ė principally because I only really want to grizzle about slow progress and how boring is that for everyone? I really hoped to be 14lb down today Ė yeah Ė I know Ė strange number but Iím in the UK and am accustomed to si... Read more

Iíve been away for a few days in great countryside Ė we donít have nearly as much of that here in the UK as you all have there Ė so itís a real joy. Iíve done my garden there Ė Ďput it to bed for the winterí and walked in both rain and sun roun... Read more

First of all Ė as we donít have Thanksgiving in the UK I have not been obliged to struggle with all those food temptations. Christmas will be another thing but we havenít got there yet. I thought I would dance down this road I started on wit... Read more

Struggling but trying to stay focused

I thought I was doing quite well at one point and I have been trying . . . . in fact Iíve upped my exercise (yes really!!) contained my alcohol consumption thanks to a very handy hint from another Spark person and kept a close eye (pretty succes... Read more

Who am I?

Friday, November 13, 2009      4 comments

I don't recognize myself right now. I am more and more suprised that I am still sparked and have had quite a run of days where I am just not struggling with food and exercise as I would have expected. The nutrition tracker keeps me on the ... Read more

The light has come on . . .

I can hardly believe it but after a really rocky start here back in August it all seems to be coming good. Certainly no fireworks but very gentle weight loss through reasonable eating and just about enough exercise - cardio and strength. I am a... Read more

Sticking with it

Wednesday, November 04, 2009      3 comments

When I signed up for Spark People at the beginning of August this year I was determined to lose weight and I did, indeed, lose 6lbs in the first few weeks. Subsequently for no reason that I could really see I put back 5 of them. I had not... Read more

I talk about determination . . .

. . . but there are many days when I wonder how determined I really am. I lost a few pounds and have let them return and have not really done anything about that. I have just returned from a birthday party in London - an 80th birthday. She... Read more

Today I am kind of starting over - and with attitude! I have done all the exercise I planned, had a careful breakfast and am about to leave the house with my pedometer. All of this makes me feel more positive and so much better in myself... Read more

I started off 2 months ago with SP and felt such determination but somehow I haven't done particularly well - not really with the weight and certainly not the exercise because I can't shed my idleness. I love this website - it has made me think... Read more
