The last fortune cookie I opened (didn't eat the cookie, more tasted it) said, something along the lines of "you have only reached a small fraction of your true potential". How true is that for most of us. Then the other day I was listening t... Read more
Lots and Lots of Compliments
I lost less weight this summer, than I did last summer (which is fine because it gets a little harder the closer you get to the goal). Last year I went back to school about 30 pounds lighter, and maybe 5 to 10 people noticed that I had lost we... Read more
My Goals For This Year
Next Wednesday, I go back to work and the kids go back to school. As I start a new school year, I just wanted to write down my goals for this years. I know many of my fellow sparkers have great goals for marathons and other athletic competitio... Read more
Hard Work Pays Off
Yesterday I experienced the benefits of my hard work this year. I went rock wall climbing with the Long Beach Sparkers in the morning. Then I went out to a formal dinner in the evening with some people that I knew in college and beyond, but ha... Read more
Good Bye Old Friends, Enjoy Your New Home
I just had a garage sale and got rid of all those sizes that no longer fit. What did not sell is bagged and going to Goodwill. I have to say it was hard for some irrational emotional reason. I know most people are so excited to go down a size ... Read more
Having My Garage Sale This Weekend
I am feeling a bit overwhelmed this morning. I finally got my permit for a garage sale, which I am having this Friday through Sunday (Aug.21-23). My plan is to sell all t... Read more
No More Protein in the Morning, How Will I Ever Live?
It's 2:30 in the morning and I cannot sleep. The reason is so lame that I am kind of mad at myself for losing sleep over this. I work at an elementary school and I am on summer vacation right now. Since I am not working, it gives me time for ... Read more
Weight Loss and Body Mass
Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting my sparkfriend, the very nice and cute Jocelyn (aka WOLFKITTY), and we have both lost around 120 pounds. We talked a little about how good we feel, and I know we're both glad we chose the route we did. I... Read more
No My Husband Is Not With Someone New, I Just Lost Weight-the following night
Okay, so I spent sometime by the campfire, but I did go to bed earlier than my husband. I did not want to drink because I am conserving those calories for something that is more worth it. We had to be up early this morning.
So last nights to... Read more
No My Husband Is Not With Someone New, I Just Lost Weight.
Okay..., I am currently camping with a camping group, and I have gone camping with this group for several years now. I don't really know these people really well, but I wouldn't call them strangers either. It's some on-line group that my husba... Read more
Seeing the Big Picture
I weigh myself everyday on my Wii Fit. I like looking at the chart and seeing where I started and where I am now. I like knowing that, even if I go up every now and then, there is still a decline on that scatter chart. I love seeing that ther... Read more
Wearing My Hubby's Jeans
This morning I told my husband that I might weigh less then him now. I have been wearing his jeans lately, and they aren't tight. He said, "check it". I guess he had taken a body test on the Wii last night, and he was down from 225 to 211(my ... Read more
Weight Loss Sale
I wish Long Beach didn't require a permit to have a garage sale, because I really need to have one. I just haven't been to the police station to turn in my $7 and application. I have piles of clothes that no longer fit, and I know that I would ... Read more
It just occurred to me this morning that I am only 22 pounds away from crossing into the 100's. I am only about 30 pounds from hitting my high school weight range (I fluctuated in high school from 190 to 160..., I hit 200 pounds in fifth grade,... Read more
The Difference a Year Can Make
