Do I Like Myself?

Saturday, May 30, 2015      5 comments

I've been asking myself that a lot over the last couple of days. Looking back at my old blogs, I wonder why I didn't follow through with the things I said I was going to do. It wasn't because I didn't mean what I said when I said it - I think I ... Read more

For Everyone Who Responded To My Pain

Sunday, July 14, 2013      17 comments

First, I have to tell you all that I had over 200 responses to my last two blogs: "In Memory of Trixie" and "So Much More Than A Diet." Although I began trying to answer each person who commented on these blogs individually, I soon found it impo... Read more

July 8th will always be a day I remember because today I lost my Pug, Trixie - my friend, my companion and my loyal doggie of 15 years. Sadly, I had to make the decision whether to let her continue with her pain or let her go. Read more

Blessings in Disguise

Thursday, June 27, 2013      4 comments

There's an old saying, "You never miss the water 'til the well runs dry." I can attest to the truth of this because, while I did exercise, I never liked it much, or looked forward to it. Then I fell on my back and, over a period of time, I sta... Read more

It's been a while since I wrote a Blog Entry but I felt the time was right to express some thoughts about my life as a Spark People member. Over the years I've been on Spark, I have made a lot of friends. I have seen people come and go and I, m... Read more

For All My Wonderful Spark Friends!

Saturday, November 10, 2012      5 comments

Yesterday, my DH and I experienced a miracle. A nodule that was seen by Pt-scan in my hubby's left lung was to be biopsied to see if it was cancer. That is scary enough but, in this case, DH is a 5 yr. lung cancer survivor. He also had a battle... Read more

A Very Happy Birthday

In 16 days, Lord willing, I will celebrate my 64th birthday - and I am actually looking forward to it! emoticon ... Read more

Sometimes Screwing Up Ain't All Bad!

This blog title isn't exactly the Queen's English but every once in a while you have to say it in a way that just gets right to the heart of the matter emoticonRead more

I realize I may be opening a big can or worms by writing this blog but, nonetheless, this is "my" thing and it isn't going to be for everyone. Losing weight - just like many other things in life - is not a "one Size Fits All' proposition, and I'... Read more

Overcoming Fear Of Eating Outside My Home

Wednesday, September 05, 2012      1 comments

My husband hates eating out for the most part so unlike a lot of our friends, we eat almost all of our meals at home. That made it a lot easier for me when I came back to Spark People in May of this year. I've always been a slow loser but ... Read more

Time To Take On Meal Planning

Tuesday, August 21, 2012      2 comments

One thing I have never really done is to plan the week's meals in advance - and then stick to the plan! Today's video by Dietician Becky got me thinking about how much easier my life would be if I did plan my week's meals, shopped accordingly, ... Read more

The Church Ladies Strike Hard

Monday, August 13, 2012      2 comments

Sunday could have been a disaster - and it probably would have been 6 months ago, but not now. When posting with a lot of new members, I have said over and over again that Spark is about re-educating ourselves regarding food, and then forming a ... Read more

A Life Lesson Well Learned

Tuesday, July 31, 2012      2 comments

Having a life threatening illness can really change your outlook on life and teach you what is important very quickly. I know what it's like to hear a doctor say, "You have cancer." It changes everything in the blink of an eye. Read more

MaMa Mia, I Really Don't Need Them!

Friday, July 13, 2012      3 comments

Well, I don't need them at every meal that is..... What a revelation! All these years I thought you absolutely had to have a starch with every single meal. I come from an Italian-American background, and Italians love to eat, and they eat BIG... Read more

Why Do I Yo-Yo?

Sunday, July 01, 2012      3 comments

I've been doing some reflective thinking about why I have yo-yo'd all my adult life with my weight, and I think I finally found the answer to that question. I have tried most popular diets, joined WW several times and even tried Nutri Sy... Read more
