I had a doctor visit this past week, and I was all ready for "you need to get this weight back off" and INSTEAD, they were happy that I was down 13# from July when I visited another of my doctors. Put in those terms, I was pretty happy as well!... Read more
How's My Challenge Going & What I Have Been Up To Recently
My challenge with the RV Enthusiasts team is done tomorrow - wow! 6 weeks went quickly. I didn't weigh in last week - I forgot my scales at home when we were out of town - and got a "vacation" week. If I am less than I was two weeks ago, I wi... Read more
8/27/17 How's My Challenge Going? #2
I began a challenge with one of my first two Spark teams - RV Enthusiasts - six weeks ago. As of yesterday, I have lost just under 6#. An average of 1# per week seems to be a good fit for me. I'm not starving, I'm not exercising for hours on ... Read more
How's My Challenge Going?
Back in July, I wrote about the new challenge I was on with members of the RV Enthusiasts and 50+ Females teams. I wrote about how I had been "off track" for WAYYYYYYY too long.
I am keeping a note to myself with my smartphone so that... Read more
What Happened? What's Going to Happen?
I was very successful a few years ago when I began checking in with SP. I found some teams that "fit" me then [and "fit" me now] and over the course of two years I lost 90+ pounds. I made goal. I made a lower goal as set by my PCP.

20# by midSeptember???
Some years ago I was very successful with Sparkpeople. I lost approximately 90 pounds in about 18 months, but once there, I began to slowly put some of that back on. In fact, on a high weight day [salt is NOT my friend], I have put all but 30 ... Read more
4/7/2017: Sharing a Milestone in Life
Tomorrow my oldest will turn 30. I really hadn't thought about how it would affect me. I'm remembering things that I haven't thought about in years - I was already at the hospital 30 years ago and was in labor for 24+ hours. I won't go into a... Read more

Mindful Moderation, Early for 2/18/2017
I have only had green dots on my dot calendar since the weekend. It feels good to make choices that help my body feel better.
It's also interesting to follow the season of seasonal freggies. I enjoyed a delicious serving of baked spa... Read more
Mindful Moderation, Late for 2/11/2017
I'm later than I intended for my blog update on my year of Mindful Moderation. I intend to do them over the weekends, but this past weekend didn't allow. Perhaps two days later is still moderation.
My last official weigh-in showed a ... Read more
