THREE THINGS I WANT BACK
I want my healthy, my happy, AND my SEXY back!! Not in any particular order, necessarily, but I definitely want all three returned to me. After connecting with a friend who has lost 70 pounds, and looks so happy she glows, I downloaded My Fitnes... Read more
BIGGER THAN EVER BEFORE--UGH!
I got on the scale this morning and was shocked and disgusted by what it read. I have GOT to get a handle on this thing once and for all. I hate all the hype that surrounds January 1st of each year. I don't want to be one of those who jump on th... Read more
Wow! I can't believe it's been six months since I've blogged!
Time really does fly when your life is in major flux. I moved out of state, got a new job, and gained back pretty much every pound I had lost in the last year. No use crying over spilled milk. I'm back now, and ready to do the work. I know that ... Read more
Another day. . .
I did pretty well today, eating-wise. Tomorrow I will be completely on track with both eating and exercise. I bought a new dress yesterday, and absolutely LOVE the way I look in it. Six more pounds and I will comfortably be back in my "cute clot... Read more
Feeling good, looking good!
Just 22 more days before vacation, and six more pounds to go. I'm doing really well on my water, and though I haven't been tracking my food, Ive done a great job of making healthier choices recently. Feeling the bloat of those ten re-gained poun... Read more
Ten Pounds Regained-- PLAY TIME IS OVER!!
I have now regained ten of the 30 pounds I previously lost. I'm not happy about it, but I refuse to beat myself up, after all, it could have been more. Wave bye bye to that ten pounds, though, because it's going DOWN!!... Read more
It's been a while
I know that I haven't Sparked in about a million years. Having said that, though, the past is the past. I get back on track tomorrow. Before bed tonight, I will map out my eating for tomorrow, as well as my exercise. No big lofty goals this time... Read more
Yet another fall from grace. . .
I have been on an ugly eating binge for the past five days, but it stops TODAY. I've been stressing majorly over my son, and what I am slowly coming to accept may be an ADHD diagnosis. This has been painful and frustrating for both of us, but of... Read more
1.8 Pounds to go til I'm Back on Track!!
I stepped on the scale this morning and I am down another pound. I am only 1.8 pounds from getting back to my 30 pound weight loss. THANK YOU, JESUS!!! I've gotten back to exercising and more importantly, drinking my water. I'm so happy to be o... Read more
I love reading weight loss success stories. They serve as a constant reminder to me that others have faced the fight with flab and won. If they can do it, then most certainly I can, too. Anywho, this evening I read a story about a lady who had l... Read more
Water Aerobics was phenomenal!
What a terrific way to start my day. This was by far the best water aerobics class I have ever attended. The instructor was great. She was actually in the water with us, instead of barking orders from the floor; she didn't have us doing a lot ... Read more
Water Aerobics, Anyone?
I've been sidelined from doing much in terms of exercising because of yet another flare-up of back pain, as well as chronic knee pain. Tonight I decided to make a plan B, so starting tomorrow, I'm going back to water aerobics. I've done it two o... Read more
Hopeful and Determined
While reading a post of a fellow Sparker, I stumbled across the sentence that sums up why I want to lose weight. More than looking great, feeling sexy, buying cute clothing, etc. I wish I could remember her spark name, so that I could thank her... Read more
Yaaaay!! I gained six pounds!!!
Or more specifically, I ONLY gained six pounds in the months that I have been completely off program. YES, I count that as a success. Believe me, it could have (and probably should have) been much worse, given the manner in which I ate, slept, a... Read more
FABULOUS BY 45??!!!!
I logged on and read several success stories this evening, in an attempt to motivate myself to get back on track. One that really caught my attention was titled "Fit by 40". She chronicled her journey to improve her health before her 40th birthd... Read more
