*disagrees* leopards CAN change their spots
i've just had a little trot down memory lane, reading all of my blog posts from days gone by. One thing really struck me - I was really unhappy then.
I'm really not surprised that it took some fairly major medical news to get me to lose some we... Read more
*sings* that's life, that's what all the people say
it's been lovely to pop in this evening and catch up with a few folks. i'm so proud of everyone for continuing their journeys and for being committed to getting healthy and happy.
as some of you know, i took a deliberate back step from spark a... Read more
All is going well with the weightloss! I now weigh less than i did when I got married which was the lowest I had been during my adult life. I also weigh less than my pops which was a silent goal of mine.
With the weightlo... Read more
Hello, you might remember me
I haven't posted for a while but for very good reason. I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I have an addictive personality and so in trying to motivate myself to lose weight, I swapped my constant fridge-checking for a consta... Read more
Over and over and over again
I've had a few setbacks in the last month. I'm dusting myself off and coming back.
This is me doing just that.
Ready to soar again.

Holy crap, batman
I think the universe is conspiring not against me, but towards me.
Did you ever have one of those days?
I woke up early, full of energy and ready for the day. It's the first day of the holidays, why wasn't I dragging my ass out of bed... Read more
you know what?
i'm doing ok. i'm actually fine. i have been for a few weeks.
things aren't perfect, i've still got a knee that thinks it's 100 years old but it's not the end of the world.
in the past, the only times that i've felt like things are '... Read more
do or do not, there is no try
hey peeps, would you like to know something? you would? well pull up a chair...
i'm a bit rubbish.
now, hear me out. i'm not being unnecessarily harsh for the sake of it.
i actually know how to lose weight. i do *nods*. at ... Read more
taking roads that lead me nowhere, how do I expect to get there?
i've had a turbulent week with highs, lows and even lowers but i coped. i'm still alive and i'm recouping, ready for another week.
i was so proud of myself for finding the willpower to exercise, despite my injury. i do find it challenging... Read more
*sings* one of these things is not like the others
yeah, so i've done at least 10 minutes exercise for 3 days in a row.
no big deal for you, i get that.
massive deal for me. huge. mahusive.
my spark journey has just been about the food so far. i felt too heavy to exercise. ... Read more
i've gone and done it now. uh-oh!
i always fail at resolutions. i choose massive, life changing objectives that i have no way of achieving in 365 days and so, effectively, i set myself up to fail. it doesn't feel good.
i vowed last year that i wouldn't set myself any more... Read more
Got to get up, got to keep moving
The doctor has confirmed that I am suffering from exhaustion, rather than chicken pox/shingles as predicted.
Hopefully I will be able to rest over the next few days at my parents house. They know I'm sick but they have both only been out... Read more
It's up to you, new York, new York...
It is up to me and I've been rubbish. I have fallen from the wagon in the most decadent fashion imaginable.
I have fallen into old, cobwebby and established traps; work is busy, I feel sad, my family is ill. I am disappointed with mysel... Read more
My life is like the hokey cokey...
Or at least, it certainly seems that way!
It's no secret that this is so much more than a weightloss journey for me. It's about making the me on the outside reflect the me on the inside. Sometimes that means putting it all in but other tim... Read more
who's got the love?
i'm not feeling the spark love at the moment i'm afraid, so rather than drag everyone down, i'm just getting on with getting on.
bit of a crappy time here with work and with 'stuff' and, as usual, it's rather got me down. ... Read more
