It was brought to my attention that I didn't mention I'd put my new picture on my SparkPage (nor did I post it in my blog). *shifty eyes* No, I wasn't hiding anything!
So, without further ado - I did a hatchet job to put together my start... Read more
By the numbers - 7 months on the journey
My SparkPage says "Member Since: 6/2/2011", but for everything that matters, my real entry and beginning on SparkPeople was 16 September 2011. On that day I posted my first blog and made some plans. On the very next day I tracked everything I ... Read more
So, yes, as per my status I went shoe shopping. My running shoes were bought in October right after the Oktoberfest 5k I did. I've been wearing them daily since - to work and to work out. (Thankfully not an issue at work that has come up.)

A little non-scale victory
So this actually happened on Friday, but it didn't sink in what the import of it was until yesterday.
We had a meeting in the office. That meant going into our main training room and sitting in the chairs in there. They're pink (more a ho... Read more
Scattered and not sure why
First off .... *BLUSH*! It was a couple of days before I even read enough of the comments to realize I had a featured blog, and I felt so completely overwhelmed and behind just trying to catch up with my friend's feed and teams, that I'm only n... Read more
Who's in control of the steering wheel?
So, another type of ad that seems common on one of the channels played on the gym TV is investments. Gold and retirement planning are the two common ones I can think of. One of the retirement planning ones actually made me think of this whole ... Read more
Not sure how to feel about this one
So tonight I was on the bus heading home from the gym. A woman sits down next to me. I've run across her before and she appeared to recognize me. She started off with a comment about how large my phone is. I agreed - it's a smart phone and I... Read more

Sorta almost caught up, maybe, and March ends!
Whew! So having missed keeping up with friends at all on Friday, I planned to do so this morning. Then I got up and decided the gym and shower would be a better start to my day. Then decided to go to lunch and get some new pants to go with th... Read more
Short and sweet
So glad it was Friday. If this had been Monday and I had to think about work tomorrow ... blech. That's all I have to say about that.
Sweet was that today was the first day a coworker suddenly noticed I've been losing weight. We didn't r... Read more
Slogans and wow ... how come it took me this long?
For the most part I dislike TV. I'll watch some sci-fi series, but for the most part I avoid it like the plague. Commercials and ads are sometimes the worst. In the past 15 years, my TV got more use for gaming consoles than it e... Read more
Which way did it go?
I just noticed that I was missing the Spark Diet Stage 4 link on my main page. Last I knew, it would do little "how are you doing" checkups every couple weeks, but I have no idea when that was.
Which way did it go?
I've poke... Read more
Catching up, and one of my own little ... issues
Whew, I finally did it today. I got caught up on friend's statuses, blogs, team posts, blogs by teammates ... though, of course, the feeling of being caught up is as temporary as the time it takes someone to post something new.

Spring goal review and Summer goals
First, before I talk about the goals, two things about my previous blog:
1) I do want to say that my EX is not the reason I got so messed up. I left out a lot of the buildup. You could call my EX the straw that broke the camel's back, pe... Read more
Why did I deliberately gain weight? That's IRRATIONAL!
I haven't forgotten that several people asked about this in one of my earlier blogs. It's just not something I want to give a too quick pat answer to - and yet it is something that makes me keep digging further and further into the past and mem... Read more
