Almost six years on SP!

Thursday, March 27, 2014      4 comments

I was just thinking how fast time passes. Since I joined SparkPeople I've lost over 35 pounds, and maintained it for over five years. The most helpful aspect of this website was and is the food tracker, which I have used almost every day. The ti... Read more

February Resolutions

Friday, February 03, 2012      1 comments

I make general resolutions in January, but I like waiting until February to define & refine my goals for the year. In 2012, I want to reduce the amount of "stuff" in my home and increase the amount of exercise I do weekly. I will continue to t... Read more

Fall Housecleaning

Thursday, September 22, 2011      4 comments

Every year about this time, when the weather becomes cooler, I vow to make this the season I get rid of the clutter in my house. This clutter includes clothes, books, mementos, and household appliances. However, I never fully realize the accom... Read more

Memorial Day is almost here!

Wednesday, May 25, 2011      1 comments

If I plan to go to a barbeque or other "food-based" event, I want to be sure I eat something first so that I don't go overboard on high calorie food. Since the beginning of this year I've been eating on the high side of my maintenance calories,... Read more

Thoughts on the Holidays

Tuesday, December 21, 2010      1 comments

I love Christmas! Also New Year's Day, Easter, just about any chance to celebrate and get together with family and friends. There are so many people that come to dread holidays, especially Christmas, because of the stress of cooking, gift-buyi... Read more

Hard to throw away "memories"

Tuesday, September 14, 2010      5 comments

When I'm house-cleaning, it's so difficult to toss out those school projects, the "I love you Mom" hand print drawings...you know...the memories of life. I have tried taking pictures but why do I feel the need to hold on to those mementos? The... Read more

I'm a Procrastinator

Monday, September 13, 2010      7 comments

Case in point: sitting at my computer, albeit getting support and tracking with SP...but I need to do some major "fall-cleaning" and I can always find something "better" to do. I will use my computer time as a reward for doing the hard things ... Read more

Heat, heat--go away!

Thursday, July 08, 2010      6 comments

I know it's summer & supposed to be hot, but several days of over 100 degrees and high humidity is a bit too much. I'm so glad I have a recumbent bike, weights, and bands for indoor use!... Read more

Happy Holidays

Thursday, December 10, 2009      1 comments

Can the New Year be far behind? If I stick to my plan and track food during the holiday season, I'm much farther ahead for the beginning of 2010. In past years, I'd be quite ready to make a diet resolution after the dissolution of the many Chr... Read more

Fear of Maintenance

Wednesday, October 21, 2009      3 comments

It's over! The long quest to lose those last few pounds has been conquered. All is now well...or is it? I know many of you have been there before. Losing lots of weight, or just a few pounds, and then thinking: Now what? Obviously, it is N... Read more

Is it "the" flu?

Tuesday, September 22, 2009      3 comments

I think I'm just getting a cold. Every year I get a regular flu shot; I plan to do the same this year. Right now, I'm not too fearful of the H1N1 flu, but would not mind being vaccinated. Soon... Read more

Give thanks every day.

Monday, August 10, 2009      6 comments

I just read a blog of a Spark People member who had a sudden death in the family--a very young person with all of life ahead of her. Then I read the obituary of a former teacher of my children. She was in her fifties. Every day we hear about ... Read more

Glad it's the weekend!

Saturday, July 18, 2009      1 comments

I used to dread weekends when I "dieted" because I knew I would surely "cheat" and feel sad and guilty on Monday. Since I've been tracking my food on Sparkpeople, I realized that I can stay within the bounds of my calorie intake and still enjoy... Read more
