Thursday, September 10, 2009      4 comments

In the 2 months I've been on Spark People I've lost 2 pedometers (cheapies) so I decided to find a better pedometer. I went to the local sports store after work and they only had 1 brand so I came home and searched the internet and Walking.com.... Read more

My DH is leaving this am for a week hiking in Utah with his brother. They've been doing this for about 3 years now. I'm really happy that he is healthy and active enough to do this and that he has such a good relationship with his brother. My... Read more
What Size am I?

Its time to start another week and continue on with my journey. I was disappointed with my picture showing my 20 lb weight loss. I truly didn't "see" my size until I looked at the picture. I guess I feel smaller than I am now that I am losing... Read more

We're back from the cabin. Had a great weekend! Only went over calories x 1 on Friday. We hiked a lot and I will be adding a couple of pictures to my gallery later. I missed my spark. Sure wish we had internet in the mountains!... Read more

I did it! I reached my first 20 lb goal. I am happy and proud. I have learned so much along the way. As a person who has been overweight and dieted since she was a child and as an RN I thought I knew it all about losing weight. I may have k... Read more
Beautiful Weekend

Had a wonderful weekend. Went on 2 hikes. The 2nd had a 200 feet elevation rise - which is a lot for me and I did well. I was a little out of breath (we're at 8,000 feet and I have asthma) but my legs were strong and my nordic walking poles r... Read more

I had what I call a Hungry Day yesterday. I ate more than I should knowingly. The one difference I noted from before Spark People was that I ate extra yogurt, extra fruit, larger portions of good food, and one bowl (rather than 2 !) of ice cre... Read more

Didn't feel great yesterday, so I went to bed without doing my 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercises. I feel kind of funny. Something' s missing. Its really funny how much an attitude can change in 2 months. By the scale I lost a pound toda... Read more
