I've been chugging right along, losing a bit each week, pretty happy with my success. The next week has me nervous, though.
There was a death in the family last night, so the next few days we'll be spending with family- a change in my routi... Read more
I've never been big on sushi. The thought of eating raw fish didn't sound appealing to me, and the first sushi I tried was mall sushi- not very good. I like seafood, but dislike a particularly fishy taste, and was under the impression sushi woul... Read more
My little black dress has been hanging in my closet for years now. I bought it for my high school reunion, at a time when I was pretty satisfied with my figure. I needed the perfect dress to accentuate it, something a little formal.
I have... Read more
I've still got a couple days vacation left, but I'm back in town- at home. The past 5 days have been spent in Georgia, for wedding festivities. This included a buffet dinner to meet the groom's family, a couple pizza dinners, several fast food m... Read more
Water's not my favorite thing to drink. I've been managing to drink all I'm supposed to though, every day since I started Sparks. Cold Aquafina is the best water, I've found. Still- I need to make it better.
My grandmother was showing me he... Read more
The weekend was a blast, as LARPs usually are, despite the fact that we all began the weekend dead. I don't think everyone is taking that as the wake-up call that it is. I suppose we'll see come next event.
I had planned on wearing my newl... Read more
A friend gave me a corset a while back. It's purple leather, zips in front and laces in back, and it has a strip attached to one side of the back on the inside that's 2 inches wide. If that flap is folded inward, you see the clothing under the c... Read more
1.4 more gone this week which means I FINALLY get to quit drinking this foul office coffee! And, on weekends, I'll easily be able to make just enough for a cup instead of wasting some on days I can only drink one! I have the Chambord 4-cup frenc... Read more
I have SUCH a hard time with moderation. Years ago, I had to lose 50 pounds. I did it with Weight Watchers and working out 3-5 times a week. I maintained for over 3 years. I knew HOW to lose weight, but I stopped tracking. Eventually I got to wh... Read more
I made it through Easter! I ate a healthy breakfast, and made sure to get in half my water before heading out for the day’s festivities. I didn’t know what to expect- I knew I wouldn’t be able to accurately track everything. I wasn’t sure I’d ev... Read more
Last week I got to try out my brand new, Polar F6 heart rate monitor for the first time. Weather hadn’t cooperated before then. I told everyone I was going to lunch & strapped the thing on in the restroom before heading out, & hit the start butt... Read more
I’ve officially lost half the weight I started out intending to lose. I know the first half is the easier of the two. I know the second half will require me to step up the exercise efforts. That’s ok though- I’ve been taking this at my own pace,... Read more
About 8 months ago, I had to buy a new pair of jeans. It was jeans day at work, and I didn't have a single pair I could fit in any longer. I remember swinging by WalMart on the way to work to grab some. They have since been the only jeans I had,... Read more
FINALLY- I am officially in a healthy BMI range- I no longer have to say I’m “overweight”, just, over what I feel comfortable with. And, it’s 3 weeks ahead of what I had expected! I’m not set on a date to be at goal weight, but I did calculate r... Read more
Last night I decided was my "treat night"- I hadn't eaten out in a bit, my sister came over & we were hungry, so BD's Mongolian Grill www.gomongo.com/experien ce/create-a-bowl.php was suggested. I checked nutrition online & p... Read more
