I am trying to lose 70 pounds and I just ticked over the 35 pounds mark! From 195 to 159.4! I feel so much better and so much fitter. I am prepping for the Terry Fox Run that happens next week and ran a practice 5k yesterday. I wish I would... Read more

Day 275 - Alcohol was a big calorie problem for me

Wednesday, July 22, 2015      1 comments

Each time I had regained a lot of weight alcohol was one of my "food" problems. I am a bit of a rebel and alcohol allowed me to feel like I was doing a fun thing at the end of a boring week. So, I always need to find other fun, social and ... Read more

Period cycle returning to normal

Tuesday, July 21, 2015      0 comments

I am currently 166 down from a high of 195. When I was hanging around 190-195 my period started coming more frequently. I swear once it came only 15 days apart. I hear this does happen with a higher body fat percentage. Well, this last cycl... Read more

Thyroid function back to normal

Thursday, June 04, 2015      1 comments

Six months ago I had borderline low thyroid. I am super happy to say it is now back within normal range. Also, my occasional bouts with edema in the calves have become even less frequent and almost imperceptible - down to just a slight puf... Read more

Being healthy outside Spark but still looking here for inspiration

Sunday, May 31, 2015      0 comments

Last year I had gained all my weight back again and more. In May 2014 I was 195 pounds. I had to speak at a convention and at a formal function so you can imagine I was not happy with all the photos taken. Since last October I have been working ... Read more

Rewarded for losing another pound! Through the Desert

Thursday, September 26, 2013      0 comments

Yay, it feels like it has been a long time since I earned a board game reward. I was starting to lose hope in the reward process. I * just squeaked * in one more pound down this morning. I suspect it is partially due to dehydration from a ... Read more

Interesting talk about body image issues stemming from child beauty pageants

Friday, September 20, 2013      0 comments

I listened to this talk in the car last night and found it fascinating. I have no experience of child beauty pageants at all so it was a foreign world to me. I don't even have cable so I have never seen the "toddlers and tiaras" show. Read more

Too many exceptions

Thursday, September 19, 2013      0 comments

Lately I have been making too many exceptions. It is true those of us trying to lose weight need to live realistically and allow for things like weekends away and parties but we need to keep an eye on how often these happen. I want to pick ... Read more

Next three game rewards planned

Saturday, August 31, 2013      1 comments

Well after dropping three pounds, 1 per day I knew I was in for some fluctuations and I had quite a few. I also had a trip to a cottage where too much beer was consumed and one side trip to a Chinese buffet. So almost two weeks later have I... Read more

Friday, August 16, 2013      2 comments

Yay, another pound down the very next day. Love those sudden drops. The only thing is I know this means for sure up tomorrow and a long slow slog back down...but that's how it goes. The other thing I love is that I notice that my legs and f... Read more

Thursday, August 15, 2013      2 comments

Awarded for losing 5 pounds: Biblios! I can't believe it took that long to lose 5 pounds. I thought it would be way easier than it was since I have a lot to lose. I thin... Read more

A little depressed for no reason - oh well exercise will probably shake that

Tuesday, July 30, 2013      2 comments

I'm all set to go swimming. It's a cold evening and I couldn't shake a kind of icky feeling that has me tired and kind of sighing. I had a cup of tea, glass of water - that helped a bit - probably hydrated my brain - and a Fudge popsicle. Ok so... Read more

My body doesn't want me to have board games :(

Sunday, July 21, 2013      1 comments

I was within tasting distance of my next reward - so close I could taste it.. Unfortunately it tasted like cardboard ... and I can't have board game rewards anyway for a while since I shot right back up three pounds. I will have to slog back do... Read more
