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

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

I'm feeling a little blah today. I'm not sure why. Things are going well with my nutrition and fitness. I'm kind of sore, but it's nothing serious. I'm not sure why I've got the blues today. Well, it will pass. Read more

Spark Activity Tracker

Wednesday, October 02, 2013      5 comments

I recently bought the Spark Activity Tracker. I had been thinking about getting a Fitbit or something like that, so I was really excited when SP came up with their own tracker. I really like the tracker. So far, I've only used it for walkin... Read more

Dear Lori, I know you've had some major stress over the last few years. You think you should have handled things better, but be happy and even proud of yourself for coming through these obstacles a stronger woman. I know you are embarr... Read more
