There are plenty of people around me who are supportive. I do think sparkers are the best support. They are here 24/7. We are all here for the same reason. We all get it. There are no nasty comments that are seen as helpful when they are actual... Read more

Stress about weight loss?

Monday, May 25, 2015      2 comments

Nah, I actually don't stress about it too much. I accepted a long time ago that this is a marathon and not a sprint. I didn't get heavy overnight, it won't come off overnight. When it does, it isn't healthy anyway. I'm a survivor of phen... Read more

Amazingly, I can say that right now I don't have one. The woman that I work with used to be, but her tune has changed. She's been trying to lose some weight and realizes how hard it is and how it doesn't help to have someone laughing at you. ... Read more

Wednesday, November 12, 2014      0 comments

So what is my true motivation behind this lifestyle change? I actually realized that about a month ago when I was at a baptism for my newest niece. I was running around out in the church yard with my 2 year old nephew and I realized I was... Read more

Temporary end?

Sunday, November 09, 2014      2 comments

The boys and I went on an overland hike this morning down by the river. I am hoping that it isn't the end of our nice weather permanently. It was beautiful and I love getting to take them outside and spring and fall weather is perfect for them... Read more

just short today!

Friday, November 07, 2014      4 comments

I had a pretty good day. Now I'm home and wiped out after a busy day plus bowling tonight. I saw a friend who I haven't seen in a month because her mother was I'll and passed away. She runs a coffeehouse and so I stopped in and had a decaf cap... Read more

I can't believe how much better I am feeling and all it took was some exercise and portion control. My anxiety is so much less. True story. I wish I would have realized how much the exercise would help a long time ago. I think my anxiety... Read more

Work and Eating

Picky Eaters

Picky eaters, oh yeah, I live with one and he's not a kid. He is 44 and a perfect example of how not to teach your kid to eat. This guy won't touch veggies for the most part. He will eat them if they are raw, certainly not cooked. Peas, ... Read more

Improvements that aren't the scale

Sunday, November 02, 2014      1 comments

Even though the scale is moving, other great things are happening to me. I am down a size in clothing. I bought a few things yesterday that are a size 22. I was wearing a size 24 pants before. Tops I can buy an 18-20, so that is SUPER ex... Read more
