I weighed out today for a competition I've been in at work. I was a little worried because I didn't diet or do anything special; I stayed in my sustain... Read more
Starting Fresh
Tuesday, January 05, 2016      9 comments

Well, I'm back. In 2013 I lost 30 lbs to get to an all-time low of 153! I felt stronger and more energetic than ever, because at the same time I reduced my body fat percentage from the 30% range to the 24% range, bringing me into "healthy" for ... Read more
BMI Sucks

I just took the American Heart Association 7 step assessment tool survey thingy (

I figured it out! :)
Wednesday, March 20, 2013      3 comments

I've been trying to figure out how much of my weight loss was fat. I've been thinking about it all wrong, and way underestimating. I was trying to times the difference in percentages by the amount I lost; that's dumb. Of course the simples... Read more
A New Target, and Finally Some Progress!
Thursday, February 28, 2013      3 comments

I have been struggling with my food for a while. It's so discouraging to track and see that no matter how hard I try my calories are too high and my vitamins are too low and my fiber is never high enough and blah blah blah. I know that the inter... Read more
Really?!? Enough may just be enough.

We signed up for a gym on Friday. Good timing, right? Right after Thanksgiving, I'll try to get back on track. One of the "Black Friday" benefits of the deal was a free once-a-month meeting with a personal trainer. Last night we had our first me... Read more
I'm worried about the family dog
Monday, August 06, 2012      2 comments

So, DH and I have been living with my in-laws all summer, waiting to hear back from the bank on the short-sale we've had an offer on since May. When we first moved in, I tried running with the dog. She loved it! And I did too, but then my ... Read more
I miss Sparking!
Monday, July 30, 2012      4 comments

I Miss Sparking! I got a friend request the other day (well, more accurately a notification that someone had added me as a SparkFriend) and it reminded me of how much I enjoyed being a daily Sparker. I had a streak of almost a full year of ... Read more

I was brave this morning and weighed in. I've been avoiding it for months, because I knew that it would say "that's overweight" and until this morning I didn't think I could handle that. I had made so much progress! Back in September I was down ... Read more
I'm Back!
Saturday, January 07, 2012      3 comments

OK, so October, November, and December were not so great with regard to staying "on track." In retrospect, choosing the three most calorie-laden months of the year to stop tracking was not a good idea. :) I think I gained about 10 pounds, but I'... Read more
SparkAmerica: I can track fitness minutes w/o calories! :D
Thursday, September 01, 2011      0 comments

I just discovered that I can track my fitness minutes without tracking calories through! That's perfect! I don't really want to track my calories burned because I'm worried about getting caught up in the numbers. But I still kin... Read more
I buttoned size 6 pants! (pics)
Tuesday, August 30, 2011      4 comments

My goal has always been a size 8. Starting at size 14 this time last year (highest was 18, but that was in high school), I never thought single-digit pants size was even a possibility. I haven't had one since I was about, oh, 11 years old. But l... Read more
The Spark book: I'm Not Leaving the Program, I'm Leaving the Diet
Friday, August 26, 2011      1 comments

I've been reading "The Spark," and I realized that the whole time I've been on a diet. Which is not a bad thing, because on this diet I have lost approximately 25 lbs and I feel much healthier and better. I am definitely not the same person I wa... Read more
So much has happened!
Monday, August 22, 2011      2 comments

It's been so long since I had time to blog that I don't even know where to begin! I guess I'll start with some of the follow-up stuff from July's blogs then move on to what's going on now. First off, I went and got some new bras. :) Definit... Read more
July Goals--A little late is better than never
Friday, July 08, 2011      1 comments

I'm going to join my "Gonna Make It Happen" team-mates and set these goals for July, but I'll modify a little, because most of them aren't really stretch goals for me right now. 1. Drink [80 oz] of water a day. They are going for 6 glasses,... Read more
