Feeling groovy

Friday, September 04, 2015      3 comments

I can't believe how great I feel tonight. This exercise thing is just awesome. I'm going to keep it up. How great it would be to see exercise as a gift and not an obligation. ... Read more

I am really struggling with anxiety. I cannot stand this feeling. Why can't I feel good about myself? I cannot stand being afraid every single day. Ugh. I've had therapy, meds, etc. When will I lean to accept myself. When will I learn... Read more

Commit to Myself and My Friends

Tuesday, September 01, 2015      4 comments

I keep quitting SparkPeople. I get too busy or maybe it's really too lazy. I need to see SparkPeople as a gift to myself instead of an obligation. There are so many great people on here who are so encouraging, why do I keep leaving? I need to st... Read more

What will it take...

Monday, December 22, 2014      1 comments

What will it take for me to commit to being healthy? How much weight do I need to gain before I commit to checking in to SparkPeople daily? How much pain do I need to be in before I pull some weight off this very tired body? Being this heavy, fe... Read more

Three Compliments

Thursday, October 09, 2014      4 comments

SparkCoach has instructed me to blog three compliments of myself. Sigh. This shouldn't be so difficult. 1. I'm a good mom. 2. I have a good sense of humor. 3. I'm smart. I could probably easily think of 30 things I don't lik... Read more

Down, but not out

Friday, February 28, 2014      4 comments

I started working downtown. It's a consulting job that may turn into a permanent job. I absolutely love the work. However, the commute is rough. I get up between 4:30 and 5:00 in the morning. I get home around 6:30pm. I started eating a to... Read more

Struggling with healthy eating

Friday, November 15, 2013      7 comments

I'm struggling lately with making good food choices. I haven't been writing down my challenges in my journal. I have hated food shopping lately. I don't feel like cooking. The good news in all of this is that even though I'm not doing as well as... Read more

My Adventure

Tuesday, October 29, 2013      6 comments

Today, I'm wearing my new pink SparkPeople t-shirt and drinking from my new SparkPeople glass water bottle. They are gifts from my husband and my son. They both are very supportive of my weight-loss journey. My son even got me a birthday card th... Read more

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today, I am 47 years old. My goal was to lose 15 lbs by my birthday, and I did. Awesome. I've had lots of non-scale victories along the way too. I'm so happy to be back on SparkPeople. I have a new login streak! I'm exercising more, eating more ... Read more

I have a sore arm. I pulled a muscle or tendons or something yesterday. I haven't gone to the doctor, but I may have someone look at it tomorrow if I'm not feeling better. I couldn't sleep last night, because it just hurt too much. I finally end... Read more

My weight loss journey is not a punishment!

Wednesday, October 09, 2013      4 comments

I had an a-ha moment today. Sometimes I consider eating healthy and exercising a punishment because I'm morbidly obese. Too many times, I have eaten healthy foods grudgingly. Too many times I've rolled my eyes at exercise as if it's something te... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts My NSV made me just as happy as my SV.

Monday, October 07, 2013      42 comments

I lost three pounds this past week. I'm ecstatic. However, I had a non-scale victory (NSV) that was just as important to me, if not more so. I felt crummy this weekend. I just felt achy and icky. All I wanted to do was sleep and eat. (I almost a... Read more

Allergies, flu, or am I just weird?

Sunday, October 06, 2013      3 comments

Every once in a while, I feel as if I have the flu. It's usually when my allergies are bothering me. I ache all over and have a slight fever. That happened this weekend. I felt really crummy on Friday and Saturday, and I got very little done. I'... Read more
