The Numbers...

Sunday, April 06, 2014      1 comments

Weekly Summing Up II

Saturday, February 15, 2014      2 comments

WEIGHT: I DID IT!!! 5% Goal reached. I am at 157 which I am really pleased with. Ideally I wanted to lose at least 3lbs to hold any hope of reaching my birthday 145, but realistically I was never going to get that with the busy week I have had... Read more

Weekly Summing Up

Friday, February 07, 2014      3 comments

I need to take stock and since I am in something of a habit of measuring up on a Friday - and Fridays seem to be shaping up as my "me" day, giving me the time to sit and think... so it makes sense to TRY (at least) to make a weekly sum-up post o... Read more

Just flying by to let you all know I am still here. February is already panning out to be supremely busy for me... but I kind of knew it would be! Baby started Sea Cadets a few weeks ago and has been constantly bombarding me since the first... Read more

In a Nutshell...

Friday, January 31, 2014      3 comments

I have had a really busy week, yet don't actually feel I have acheived anything! I had a visit with my daughter's counsellor regarding the suggested treatment for her OCD. Strangely (or not, I guess) they are ignoring the OCD itself and wor... Read more

Plan-wise, things are going great at the moment. I am having a small issue, however. Looking back through my postings for this week I have realised I am slipping back into some bad habits. Since my initial bout of Sparking, I had a far... Read more

On My Need to See the World

Friday, January 24, 2014      6 comments

This is going to all seem irrelevant to many here, as it has nothing to do with weight loss, but my Spark journey is about so much more than that right now as I am using the tools here to improve every aspect of my life. So I apologise to those ... Read more

Absolutely I am Logging That!

Tuesday, January 21, 2014      8 comments

It is possible to get bogged down in logging every piece of activity as exercise - especially with the huge array of calorie-counters online telling us how much we burn washing dishes, hoovering a room, cleaning a toilet etc. There is an article... Read more

Ordinarily, weekends are the pits for me. It's the time I tend to feel at my loneliest as all those I chat with are busy with actual lives during the weekend and I rarely even get dressed. I seldom eat at weekends, either - those are the times I... Read more

Weigh-in/5% Challenge Setup

Friday, January 17, 2014      1 comments

So - out for drinkies with my best budling this evening! A little nervous if I'm honest - it's not a proper night out, just a chat over a couple of drinks in a nearby hotel but I haven't been out at all in so long! Anyway, she is staying ov... Read more

Five Minutes More

I don't know why I am not used to it by now; I really shouldn't be surprised when Spark throws up these huge revelations through the most seemingly meaningless things but nevertheless, here I am mulling over what a massive difference an extra 5 ... Read more

I have spent the last couple of hours trawling through the old message board archives to find my Community Journal. I had kind-of assumed I would be able to un-archive it by posting to it but it seems the lock is a one-way process. This mak... Read more

Killing the Inner Martyr

Sunday, January 12, 2014      6 comments

I had a message from my much-lovely best friend in all the world this morning telling me to make arrangements for Hub and the kids to be looked after 21-23rd March because she is 'whisking me away' for the weekend. My first thought was "the... Read more

I have been ReSparked for a little over a month now so figure it's a good time to weigh in. Today I am at 169, which although an increase of 5 pounds really doesn't matter to me. Why not? * During the time I have been away, I have... Read more
