I passed the test of my life (and found the old Spark)

Saturday, August 25, 2012      4 comments

It started innocently. A morning scare. A feeling of pressure like an encyclopedia resting heavily on my chest. Radiating tingling all the way down my left arm. Sweaty. Clammy. Threw up a little. I wasn't really doing anything strenuous. What t... Read more

I'm Wide, But Not Fat!

Thursday, February 03, 2011      2 comments

Today was official weigh in day. Not much of a budge on the scale since last month only minor reduced inches, but some progress has been made! I decided a few days ago to drop my weekly calorie goal some more to shake up my body a bit along... Read more

Pause to Exhale

Saturday, January 22, 2011      4 comments

This is a blog entry to remind myself that I can "feel good" -- which I do right now. I just finished a Powerstrikes workout (love Ilaria!). Fought through this semi-chest cold thingy and PMS and just got it done. She makes it fun. My DH... Read more

Pushing Through the Muck

Friday, January 07, 2011      2 comments

I'm slowly returning to my old "get with it" mindset. Thank goodness I seem to have a stored memory about how to live healthier by making good choices. I feel I simply strayed for a while in my struggle to battle too many external forces that s... Read more

Facing Facts

I am both a "maintainer" AND a person who needs to lose weight. You didn't read that incorrectly. Here's the evidence... #1 - Honor the accomplishment: As of this morning, I've successfully kept 67 unwanted lbs off my body for abou... Read more

Hmm. Looks like I AM maintaining...

I've been beating myself up a bit over the past few months for slacking off. My skinny jeans fit, but don't look as good as they did in January when I was at 130. Some of my smaller sized pants are currently too tight for public viewing. Depre... Read more

A pause in the action for problem-solving reflection. WHAT I'M DOING WELL: ********************** *Drinking the water *Not totally freaking out about the 9 lb gain *Fitting in Strength Training *Eating fruits and veggies *Still ... Read more

Keeping it Real - Reeling it in

Thursday, June 03, 2010      2 comments

In the world of maintaining weight loss there is very little sense of urgency. I've kept off most of the 90 lbs I lost for 10 months now. For this I am very proud. I still fit into my "new" clothes (except some of those form-fitting size 4 p... Read more

Buckle Down Time

Sunday, April 25, 2010      3 comments

As I work my way through maintenance month #9, I find myself 1.5 lbs over my boundary limits. This is the first time I've crossed that line in the sand. It is a little scary. Over the past two weeks I started to hear my inner voice whispe... Read more

Bring it on, Pollen

Friday, April 16, 2010      2 comments

Long time no blog. Life is pretty good. Some positive changes going on around me. Some movement afoot. In a rather quirky development, I am experiencing my very first spring without the onslaught of rapid fire sneezes and watery, itchy e... Read more

Rabbit Food (or how maintaining isn't only about lettuce and carrots)

I've got the skinny jeans on today. They are feeling somewhat second-skin, slim - but still fit just fine. Very cool that my body is entering month # 8 in this wonderful healthy state rocking size 4 denim. My outfit of choice is to remin... Read more

Spring into Action

Saturday, March 20, 2010      5 comments

I've been feeling a bit blah the last few days for a variety of reasons. I guess it is mostly about the unsettled things in life. Come to think of it, is anything ever really "settled" in life? I'd like to get to a place where I accept tha... Read more

The 5 minute pledge

Monday, March 08, 2010      3 comments

I've been overeating the past two days. Too much anticipation. Too much unattended to stress. I guess it hasn't been soooo bad in terms of my food choices, just too much quantity. I don't want to get sucked into out of control comfort ea... Read more

Mi Stress es Su Stress

Monday, March 01, 2010      4 comments

I remember the "for better or worse" part. However, I don't recall the "my life is perpetually miserable and therefore yours shall be, too." My husband is tormenting himself (and me) over lots of old, unresolved baggage, some more recent/... Read more
