I really am amazed at the support I get when I see people answer my blog. I see that they all write to each other and support each other. I'm still feeling overwhelmed by the thoughts of change. I'm not ready to pay it forward, but just seein... Read more

no results--and very proud

Friday, February 06, 2015      5 comments

That's right. I have seen no changes in my body at all...and I am still very proud! It's way to early for anything to happen physically. But I am laying down the framework and doing great!! I am back on Spark regularly. I regained my fo... Read more

Finding focus

Thursday, February 05, 2015      2 comments

Getting or keeping my goal weight takes tremendous focus. I remember that I was aware of what I ate and how much movement I got since I was a teenager. In my twenties, it was a bit of an obsession. Regardless, I could show amazing results. ... Read more

I was all excited to write about my challenges with breakfast. Then I lost my car keys (probably fell out of my coat at Wendy's because dh drove). So now I'm defeated. But, then again, there's always time to complain about something. :) ... Read more

Setting goals

Tuesday, February 03, 2015      0 comments

Good morning. Yesterday, I did throw out the cookies and eat the salad. I had several other incidents I'm not too proud of, but I did what I said. ;) Today I am thinking about my goals. I did set several goals that I never really met;... Read more

Hi again

Monday, February 02, 2015      4 comments

Hello Spark friends. Iím happy to be back with you again. A year and a half ago I wrote a blog almost every day and believe it or not, it was the only thing that worked for me. I wrote every day, Talking about my eating and exercising every d... Read more

Made a juice! Carrot & celery with some of Ashley's pineapple cup. I did it...assembly, breakdown, and washing the juicer. Work but worth it. Even did some housework: took out some garbage, recycling and items to donate because the house is ... Read more

back to blogging

Monday, October 28, 2013      0 comments

Oh blog, I missed you! You kept me on track. You helped me focus my thoughts. You helped curb my crazy. I tried writing privately, then I didn't bother writing at all. Time is so much tighter now that I work. But I need to write. Even if ... Read more

last blog

Tuesday, August 20, 2013      1 comments

I wanted to say goodbye to the blog. I just discovered how to make private journal entries so I'll enter my thoughts there. I'll still visit the Spark site. Who knows, maybe I'll even play around with some of the motivational games and activi... Read more

I never wrote about my user name. I think it will show some of the internal conflict I'm having about weight loss. This past year, when the news broke about the hospital in Texas banning workers with a high BMI, I was completely angry. I ... Read more

more about tennis elbow

Sunday, August 18, 2013      0 comments

After the cortisone shot to my arm I didn't slow down my pace. I figured I could do everything one-handed. I didn't use a splint or brace since it wasn't that bad. I didn't even tell many people. Basically, I ignored my doctor's advice to kee... Read more

keeping with the program

Friday, August 16, 2013      1 comments

I may not have lost much weight. The 140 appearing on the scale magically turned into 148 in a day: salt, bloat, lunch, whatever. I also still feel kind of lousy 100% of the time. That could possibly be because I decided to have a child at 38... Read more

diet soda

Thursday, August 15, 2013      4 comments

With slow and steady progress, I have targeted foods that have a bad reputation. I have been trying to eliminate them one by one. Diet soda is the next in line. I was never a big soda drinker, I only started drinking it regularly within t... Read more

tennis elbow

Wednesday, August 14, 2013      0 comments

About 20 years ago I developed Piriformis Syndrome from running. Basically it's just a chronically tight tush muscle. It's something I have managed over the years by consciously stretching and strengthening the various muscles it hinders (when... Read more

groceries again

Tuesday, August 13, 2013      1 comments

It is the third week in a row of wheat-conscious grocery shopping. I ventured out in the middle of a terrible thunderstorm---cursing and vowing not to buy as much as usual. I stuck to my promise and didn't buy much. Thunderstorm or not, buyin... Read more
