Holiday (ish) Weight Gain

Saturday, January 02, 2016      1 comments

What is it about holiday time that lends itself to weight gain? If I'm honest, I guess I've been gaining since about October. Such a bummer since I was so good in August and September. But then come November it was like oh well may as well ju... Read more

Own your feelings

Thursday, September 10, 2015      4 comments

We own our feelings - no one can make you feel anything you don't let them. This has been a rough few weeks for me. I started a new job and unfortunately my coworker doesn't seem very happy about it. He wasn't passed over for a promotion or ... Read more

Portion size smack-down - the ugly truth

Wednesday, September 09, 2015      6 comments

We all know that portion sizes have been getting larger over the years. How were people in the 50s able to eat red meat and noodle casseroles every night and white bread / cold cut sandwiches for lunch AND breakfast....and still be on average 2 ... Read more

Embrace the Plateau

Tuesday, September 08, 2015      7 comments

Ok Ok - before everyone starts after me with pitchforks and torches, let me explain. Plateaus are annoying. They're frustrating. They're maddening. But they're also a cause for great hope and excitement. Look at it this way, a plateau is you... Read more

I hate the turtle!!

Wednesday, September 02, 2015      8 comments

or the tortoise. Whatever. I don't WANT to hear slow and steady wins the race. After all these years, and all these attempts (sometimes successful!) at weight loss, one would think I would be used to this by now. But still somehow I am wantin... Read more

Bummed 😒

Sunday, August 30, 2015      3 comments

I wish I could be more upbeat about this but I'll just apologize in advance for being a buzz kill this morning. I was doing a no scale challenge - long story short I'm doing a biggest loser weight loss challenge for 6 months with my 2 besties.... Read more

good morning and happy Friday fellow sparkers!!! I am posting this from my phone so pardon any odd formatting or capitalization issues lol. My 2 best friends and I are doing the biggest loser contest between the three of us - from August 2 thr... Read more

Not much to say….wait a sec, that doesn’t sound like me?

Thursday, August 06, 2015      3 comments

So I’m starting this blog admitting I don’t have much to say, although, since that sounds NOTHING like me (LOL) it will probably turn out to be a long one anyway. I’m down to 180.3. This is completely as a result of the soup cleanse ... Read more

iBurn Detox Soup Cleanse - sort of...

Tuesday, August 04, 2015      3 comments

I have started Day 2 of the iBurn plan from the Dr. Oz show. Actually, it’s from a guest on his show, but I got the recipe for the soup off his website. Let me start over. Yesterday I wrote a blog about how I was back in the 190s an... Read more

Back in the 190s, and the Biggest Loser redux

Monday, August 03, 2015      1 comments

Well, I’ve gotten back into the 190s. Not that I can say I am especially surprised, I’ve been eating and drinking with wild abandon for about a month now. I blamed stress; I am starting a new job in a week but for weeks I didn’t know... Read more

July Goals? Why not!

Wednesday, July 01, 2015      1 comments

So I’ve been reading the member blogs as usual this morning - it’s been motivating as usual. I see that a bunch of you have set monthly goals, or talk about doing so. I looked down and realized it’s July 1st - so hey! Why don’t I set s... Read more

Regain, summer cold, and my weight watchers scale

Monday, June 29, 2015      1 comments

So back again, too long between blogs should have known I wasn’t keeping up with my healthy lifestyle. Last time I had had a significant reduction in weight in between. That is not the case this time. I am incredibly sad to report that ... Read more

Gainin' and a-Slidin'

Thursday, June 18, 2015      4 comments

So I’m pretty sure I’m on a “gain / slide” at this point. Why am I not certain? Because I refuse to step on the scale, of course! Look people, I am an ostrich this week. Head in the sand. Not comin' out until I’m back down. Se... Read more

Day .... 3?!?!?

Thursday, June 11, 2015      0 comments

Apparently, this is my streak. 3 days. 3 freaking days?!? This is the most I can rack up lately, it seems. As I've said before, life is hectic. I spent some time on the news sites this morning, and after getting thoroughly depressed and ... Read more

30 Lb Loss! Also, I need a new angle....

Thursday, June 04, 2015      1 comments

I can't even remember the last time I blogged (it was February, but seems like a lifetime ago.) I've apparently almost lost 30 lbs since the start of my Spark journey. This may seem odd, that I wouldn't know exactly how much weight I've been l... Read more
