The Beast Woke Up

Thursday, August 19, 2010      8 comments

I blew it big time yesterday. DH has gone backpacking for a week, work is horrendous and I succumbed. I got home after work and forgot my well laid plan of going to the gym and binged instead. I haven't binged since I started Spark and I am s... Read more

After my hike at the cabin yesterday, I was really hungry and ate up a storm -- PB and banana on whole wheat and 2 Kashi bars with a baked apple. oo eee.... Not good. Well, luckily I wasn't hungry at lunch (I wonder why?....) and skipped my a... Read more

Things I am learning

Saturday, July 31, 2010      6 comments

I read a blog entry recently about things learned on the journey. So I thought of a few things I am learning. 1. I don't need to eat as much food to satisfy my hunger as I thought I did. Especially if I eat slowly and wait for 20 min bef... Read more

Settling In

Friday, July 30, 2010      6 comments

I guess I am in a plateau. My weight hasn't changed in a couple of weeks. I feel ok with that. I'd love to drop 5 more pounds, but right now I think it is important to be comfortable with where I am. I don't want to live a diet mentality. I... Read more

Today is a New Day

Boredom Trap

Wednesday, July 21, 2010      9 comments

I let it get me yesterday. Boredom, that is. I had a day at work with little to do and I wasn't very ambitious in looking for things to do, so I was bored. I came home and after dinner DH was watching a TV program about hazardous airports tha... Read more

The Old Fashioned Way

Tuesday, July 13, 2010      7 comments

I lost 2 pounds last week. I haven't lost 2 pounds in a week for a long, long time. I think the key was taking a calorie counting book to the cabin with me. One of my spark friends suggested this! What a great idea. I wrote all my food down... Read more

When I go to our mountain cabin I have no way to track my food calorie count. I write everything down and put it in the Spark tracker when I get home. I am almost always over my allotted calories when I do this. I just can't seem to judge how... Read more

Giving away clothing

Wednesday, June 30, 2010      10 comments

I have been keeping my large sizes down in the basement, not wanting to give them away, but today I did it. I gave away 2 swimsuits (size 24) and 4 sets of nursing scrubs (size xxl). The woman I gave them to has been diligently trying to lose... Read more
