Dressing Up Is More Fun After Losing Some Weight

Tuesday, November 10, 2009      13 comments

The other night I went to a little shindig for my sister's 30th birthday, and I was thinking how much more fun dressing up is now that I am smaller. I have lost about 145 pou... Read more

School Pictures

Tuesday, November 03, 2009      11 comments

I work at a school, and my picture ends up on the wall by the office all stinking year long. The first year I was employed at this school, I went to work not knowing that I w... Read more

My Dog is a Terrible Running Partner

Monday, November 02, 2009      9 comments

I am planning on doing the Turkey Trot 10k on Thanksgiving, and I plan on running as much of it as I can. So, I have been running more than I have been walking in the mornings. I am having problems all the time with this. My pants keep fallin... Read more

Spreading the Spark to My Family

Monday, October 19, 2009      9 comments

When I started Sparking, one of my main goals was to be a better role model for my children. I saw some bad habits developing in my children, and I did not want to pass my unhealthy lifestyle on to the next generation. I see signs all the time... Read more

Setbacks

Tuesday, October 13, 2009      10 comments

Lately I have been fighting off a cold, and I haven't been getting enough sleep. On top of that, my neighbor behind my house has decided that he wanted to replace our fence with a brick wall, so I am limited to walking my dog since she can't be... Read more

Old Clothing

Monday, October 05, 2009      7 comments

Last night while I was putting some things away in my garage, I spotted a box labeled "Jeannie's Old Clothes". I opened it because I couldn't remember what was in there. I found my prom dress, my peer counseling and art club sweatshirts, and a... Read more

Body Image Issues

Monday, September 28, 2009      14 comments

Today when I got on my Wii fit, I was 201.3 pounds. So, I am figuring, provided everything goes well this week, this will be my last week of being in the 200's. I started at a whopping 340 pounds, and I have been in the 200's pretty much all o... Read more

Untapped Potential

Monday, September 14, 2009      9 comments

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

Friday, September 11, 2009      7 comments

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

Friday, September 04, 2009      10 comments

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

Sunday, August 30, 2009      5 comments

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

Sunday, August 23, 2009      5 comments

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

Tuesday, August 18, 2009      3 comments

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?

Saturday, August 15, 2009      2 comments

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

Monday, August 10, 2009      5 comments

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
