Day 9 of Challenge
Today my challenge was to drink nothing but water, which I have. Tomorrow is to exercise first thing in the morning. That may be more of a challenge but I will give it a shot. Feeling good about my accomplishments! Yay! ... Read more

Day Two of the Small Changes Challenge
Day 1 was easy; tell someone about your goals. Of course, I chose to tell Rhonda; she already knew some of it but shared with her my excitement about being back on SP, participating in a couple of SparkTeams, and the challenges available.

A new year, a new me!
So it's the 12th day of the year. I am down 7 pounds; while that's great, it's a challenge to keep it up day after day. So here's my plan...
I have a very wonderful, loving and supportive partner, and that's at least half the battle.

Tomorrow is my 52nd birthday, and I must admit I'm sorry I wasted another year not being diligent enough on my food plan and exercise. Had I followed it, I would have been at least 75 pounds lighter. However, I am not going to dwell on the neg... Read more
Hi Friends, I missed adding my food into my tracker for a couple of days but stayed on my program. I have lost a total of 2.5 inches in the last couple of weeks even though the scale doesn't show a loss. It's very frustrating to not see that s... Read more

Everything I see I want to eat! Every commercial, every food in the fridge, everything in the pantry! I must have swallowed a tapeworm!
But I'm on track, maybe a tad over in the carbs. Need a protein snack tonight. I'm terrible about ... Read more
Here I go AGAIN
Starting to sound like a broken record. Sometimes I feel like such a failure. But I have to keep trying - FOREVER. If I give up, I will be a failure!
Back on my program again. I managed to stay within 20 pounds or so of my lowest weig... Read more

Another failure but TRYING to be more positive
I'm probably not in the right frame of mind to be writing, but here goes anyway. Maybe, if nothing else, it will serve as an outlet for my frustration.
I have been up and down for the last several months, both my weight and my depression... Read more
One week on metformin
Hi fellow Sparkers. Well I've been on metformin for a week. Started the second pill per day yesterday. My doc told me to work up to 4 a day. The first few days were rough, felt kind of nauseated and had tummy ache and felt bloated. Seem to ... Read more
Started diabetes med this morning
I started metformin this morning. As my doc explained it, it doesn't lower my sugar, it just helps the insulin my body makes work better. I am sticking to my plan quite well. I rarely go over 1600 cals a day and watch the ... Read more
I've been away...
I'm back after a nearly 4-month absence. Reasons are many but here is the low-down.
I had a family crisis and went into a deep depression. I went off my plan and ate for comfort. Bad, Bad, Bad! I was diagnosed wi... Read more
2/18/08 - Week Two - Two days late in posting
Well, I didn't do so well this week. It was my birthday on Valentine's Day and I went back to my old excuse of "Hey, I'm going to celebrate to I have to eat!" I didn't do as badly as I have other years, though. I had some re... Read more
