Father's Day Blow Out

Tuesday, June 23, 2015      2 comments

In my house, mother's day and father's day have become events. I have no idea why, but its a bit warming to think the kids are 100% into it - into celebrating a parent for the day.... And boy howdy - did we! Truly, we have the full we... Read more

Adding Maureen to the Mix

Thursday, June 18, 2015      2 comments

Yesterday I had my first physical therapy visit for the medically managed weight loss program. Keep in mind, this is not like a Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers - this is a program of support and guidance in a weight loss journey - they will not d... Read more

Not a Shabby Tuesday

Tuesday, June 16, 2015      1 comments

I'm only a couple days in to my return and I've done about 1 day more than my previous 3 or 4 attempts. Not too bad. It just demonstrates to me that all our journeys are really a 'one day at a time' type trip - and on some days, those that may c... Read more

Hey... again.

Monday, June 15, 2015      2 comments

I'm not going to prattle on about how I'm back and better than ever and attacking it all full force. Looking at my "recent" blog history - I did that already. I'm back because I need to be. I need the community and I need the accountability... Read more

Tail Between My Legs ... but not defeated

Friday, October 04, 2013      4 comments

I'm back. I know I've made this post a couple times before but a recent image has me returning to what I know I need to do - a picture that is definitely not very flattering. A picture that reminds me I am EXACTLY where I was when I started... Read more

What exactly constitutes crazy? It's almost midnight and I got out of bed and had to write that line down and read it for myself. What exactly constitutes crazy? I know from my educational background that normal and abnormal are r... Read more

Not derailed

Wednesday, July 11, 2012      3 comments

Hellooooooo, SparkFriends! Well - I got on the scale this morning, 1 week later than I had planned but I did deal with a bit of a challenge. I am down 6 pounds from 2 weeks ago, so I'm happy with that. The challenge is that my family c... Read more

Its good to try something new now and then...

Monday, July 02, 2012      2 comments

I have always been a person that was willing to try something new (now, read this as new - not crazy). I have also been a parent that encourages my kids to try something new. I have often been heard saying "you should try something new every day... Read more

06-29-2012 Accountability Check

Friday, June 29, 2012      2 comments

Yesterday I had 2234 of 1710 calories and 3934 of 2300 sodium. Yup, I went over in both - but I will say seeing the number is a good thing and I probably would have went over if I wasn't tracking. I guarantee that in the last year+ that I h... Read more

Back with a Bang

Thursday, June 28, 2012      4 comments

OK - simple. I have to be back. I have to use this tool to help me achieve my goals. I will be figuring out how to get this stuff onto my tablet (android) so any suggestions in that department is much appreciated. I have done the foll... Read more

What have I done...

Thursday, June 28, 2012      3 comments

I am about looking at reality. I'm analytical. I don't try to lie to myself. But recently - I have been lying to myself. "It isn't that bad" - "I can start up again if I try hard enough" - "Once I get the motivation, I'll get back on track"... Read more

OK - new blog

Saturday, March 24, 2012      1 comments

I've "restarted" a few times over... but this time I swear... I'm where I was at 2 years ago when I started on Spark. I have to get Spark back as a tool and get myself back to daily blogging. While I'll still blog here, I like the flexibility wi... Read more

Seeing Myself

Saturday, January 07, 2012      7 comments

Christmas came and went with my getting some really awesome gifts and a promise from my husband that I had another gift coming - I'd be receiving it in two weeks. No amount of prodding or nagging or whining could break him. He would not tel... Read more

tossing some of my lunch out

Tuesday, January 03, 2012      3 comments

Guess who got a little overzealous in packing her lunch this morning? *hangs head* Everything in my bag is good - it's just the sheer amount is not. Namely - my yummy meatloaf. I will be throwing 1 serving out at lunch (and will ... Read more

False Progress

Thursday, December 29, 2011      5 comments

Eh, the title may be misleading - but so is this major weight loss I've seen in the last 2 days. I looked at the scale this morning and am down 6 pounds (I believe) from my start weight TWO DAYS ago. Yea... 2 days. I know the weight is gone... Read more
