Monday, January 14, 2013      10 comments

I’m finding it hard to get going here again and I had promised myself January would be the month when I started to re-group and lose some of my regained pounds. I know I’m too easily diverted and de-focused and the work involved in having fun ov... Read more

There was quite a lot on Spark yesterday about the support, encouragement and understanding that all of us give each other. Where – as someone asked – would we all be without each other? Indeed! I - for one - would be long gone. As it is, I... Read more

My younger grandson has just reached three years old almost without my noticing - time flies when you're having fun! He went to his Pre-school for the first time this week having been prepared by his parents plus a home visit from his teacher ... Read more
An unexpectedly bad day - WHY?
Tuesday, September 04, 2012      8 comments

I’m having a bad day today - foodwise - which I can’t really understand. I’ve been doing OK with food and exercise and was thinking yesterday that it’s getting easier to be judicious about what I put in my mouth. (See my last blog about having w... Read more

Had intended to be blogging every day for a while to keep myself from the slippage I could feel coming on after a pretty good couple of months – but things go awry don’t they? My partner wanted to take some friends (whom I don’t even get on with... Read more

. . . the friends that are staying with me in my little holiday cottage said - the minute they arrived - 'Good Heavens (well more or less that!)- 'you've lost a lot of weight' YAY! That's what we all want to hear ... Read more
Motivation and planning - and ditching excuses
Tuesday, August 28, 2012      5 comments

I’m hoping to blog most days this month – I need to renew my motivation and accountability and I guess this is the way. Coincidentally a good friend of mine here is resolved to blog and post motivational pictures all this month – so I’ll be... Read more

Four pounds gone this month. I’d have liked it to be more but my monthly weigh-ins are bearing fruit with less scale obsession and no getting discouraged when loss in one week is not much and I don’t bother to try. I’ve been trying the advice of... Read more

Happy – and fairly surprised to have a weight loss to show for my labours this month. emoticon I haven’t focused... Read more
How can 10 minutes of exercise be a problem?
Tuesday, July 17, 2012      8 comments

Having re-ignited my membership of the 10 Minute Exercise Team this week on the advice of a friend here, I had a real fight with myself yesterday about my 10 minutes. Only 10 minutes!! Why so hard to start? I'm concentrating on strength exercis... Read more
Others can do it and finally I realise that I can too :-)

I've been doing quite well lately - with food and even with exercise - to some extent at least. I’ve read various blogs lately about not giving up – about starting over –about really going for success. What an inspiring lot Sparkers are! Yes w... Read more

So – 4 days in Barcelona working in 30 degrees C and over on occasions. I know some may envy me but I really hate being too hot and I felt bad all the time I was there – yeah – weedy I know but we Brits are not used to high temperatures and they... Read more
Some pounds lost - HOORAH!

Well I’m surprised – amazed in fact – to find that I’ve lost 7 pounds since May 25th. I resolved on a new attempt to stop messing about here and take off the weight I’ve recently regained and then to plod on until I get to where I need to be. ... Read more
Change of attitude needed

I’ve been spending a lot of time doing various things in my flat recently – steam cleaning the oak floors and re-varnishing and also quite a bit of painting. Playing catch up, in fact, because I’ve neglected the flat of late due to renovating m... Read more

I’m terribly short of time today but just have to post something to say how amazed I am at my current efforts. For some time I’ve been processing all the changes I’ve been through and taking inspiration from other Sparkers principally to set up ... Read more
