Own your feelings
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
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
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!!
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
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

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?
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...
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
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!
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
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'
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?!?!?
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....
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
Welp I knew I blew it...up 8 lbs...and on being honest
First of all, I COMPLETELY understand people who decide not to track any gains. Like, see them, appreciate them, work on stopping the slide and then beginning to track weight again when the scale continues its downward progression.
I lost ... Read more
