Yesterday was my one year anniversary on SparkPeople. In that year, many things have happened.
I lost 55 pounds (it was 57, but then there was Christmas). And I lost 10 inches off my hips/lower belly and almost 8 inches off my waist. I thi... Read more
Week Forty-Four Weigh-In Day
Hmmm. I seem to have missed a few weeks...
Well, things got tough. It started shortly after my last weigh-in blog at the end of September when I discovered the candy bar at the 7-Eleven around the corner. Ugh. I've never been one for gummie... Read more

Week Thirty-Seven Weigh-In Day
Another great week, filled with everyone...and I mean EVERYONE...noticing once again that I look and feel fabulous! I ran into a few people who had not seen me in several months, and they really did not recognize me. I also performed "feats of d... Read more
Week Thirty-Six Weigh-In Day
As many of you know, I've been on a real downward spiral for months. Since January, in fact. Every week, I seem to sink lower and lower.
Well, this week, I hit a new low: I am OVERWEIGHT.
I seriously never expected this.

This is just to say that I am having a really good week.
Got in the best workout of the year last night, hence the "happy sweat" above.
Made a breakthrough of so... Read more
Week Thirty-Five Weigh-In Day
Yesterday was the literacy program BBQ, and I ate a lot of salty foods. Woke up today all puffy, so I knew it was not going to be a good weigh-in.
But that's okay. In a couple of days, all the salt bloat will be gone!
See?? That's me ... Read more
Measurement Day, Eight Months In
I'll make this short since I'm supposed to be 3-Day Noveling...
I lost one inch off both my waist and hips/lower belly this month and half an inch off my thighs. Still no movement on the upper arms. But my arms look good, I think.
Inch... Read more

I could whine about it. I sort of want to, to be honest.
But then I realize wh... Read more
Shopping for Straight Sizes
After cleaning out my closet a couple of weeks ago, I needed to go shopping. And it started yesterday.
I walked to the Eaton Centre, which is 4 km away, and began with some fortifying salmon and avocado sushi in the food court. Then I hit t... Read more
Week Thirty-Two Weigh-In Day

It's been a good week, though last night I hit the cheese pretty... Read more
Another closet clean-out and a good place to donate
I went through the closet again yesterday, inspired to pack away even more old, too-big clothing.
I bought some underwear on vacation (I know...glamorous times) and finally threw out two dozen ill-fitting, sprung-out pairs. The new ones I ... Read more
