I accepted a challenged to eat clean for 30 days starting May 1st. I've tried to do this before. I can remember how I felt. The sugar withdrawal was awful. I had a headache for five days. I was sick to my stomach all the time until the withdraw... Read more
What Motivates Me to Keep Moving Foward
This is an email I sent to HONEYBUNCH24 who asked me how I stayed motivated

Reflections of the Baby Shower
Looking back on the events of yesterday, I'm very satisfied. I attended my niece's baby shower. There was no apprehension about attending, well, not much anyway. I'm armed with everything I've learned on SparkPeople. There are no forbidden foods... Read more
I Made Him Eat His Words!
Since my last blog, a lot has happen to me. All of which is very good. I stopped scale-watching. It's the best thing that could happen to me. Now that I no longer focus on it, I'm making wonderful progress. (In my opinion)

I've made Up My Mind-No More Scale!
My scale makes me crazy. I've said that before, but now I'm really mad. That stupid thing hasn't moved in so long, I just want to take a hammer to it. I'm not a violent person so, I haven't done that but, it's a thought.
This past week, my... Read more

I Almost Missed It!
I've been concentrating so hard on the process of loosing weight that I forgot about my first goal. Loosing 10 percent of my total weight. I've actually lost 10.5 percent of my body fat, that comes to 37 pounds of fat! Not only that, I've gained... Read more
My Scale is Broken!
Even though we are counselled by SparkPeople not to constantly check our weight on the scale everyday, I am one of those people who just can't help it. I check my weight every single morning without fail. I just have to see if I'm going in the r... Read more
A Little Negativity Creeping In
Tuesdays are a very busy day for me. From the time my foot hits the floor, it's rush, rush rush the whole day through. I had to squeeze in my exercise which is Leslie Sansone's 5 Mile Fat Burning Walk. I usually do more than 5 miles. Yesterday I... Read more
A great day!
My day was so great, I just had to put it down in writing. My exercise sessions were very exhilarating. I did a six mile walk with Leslie Sansone followed by 45 minutes of strength training. That made me feel really powerful. I'm right on schedu... Read more
I've Lost 20 pounds!
If someone had told me when I started all this that I would actually succeed at losing 10 pounds, I would have been skeptical. But 20 pounds!!! I've tried so many diets in the past and spent at least a thousand dollars trying to find something t... Read more
