I can't believe 2009 is almost over! Thankfully, I've had a great year with Sparks. I learned to eat in moderation and that's still my continued goal for 2010. I've learned that I don't have to "diet" and that by following a regular exercise ... Read more

I'm more in control of my eating today. I've actually made healthy choices when I was hungry or needing to feed my face! No chocolate candy for breakfast! Good grief - I can't believe I did that yesterday! New day - more control! Carrots, a... Read more

How many times do I need to "start over". Maybe it's not really starting over, but more of giving myself a good swift kick to jump start my committment. As many times as I've lost and regained some of the same pounds, I haven't gotten up to my... Read more

I hate the "up and downs" of trying to get healthy! I just wasn't seeing any movement on the scales and I decided that I needed to start some of the steps that were in Fast Break all over. I've been weighing and measuring my food this we... Read more

I've been feeling discouraged lately because the scale is not moving very fast. I know that I didn't gain this weight quickly and I shouldn't expect to lose it quickly, but I have been wishing those numbers would move! But today, I was cle... Read more

Well, I finally got back to doing my cardio every day! Even when my back was better, I had trouble getting motivated to get back on that cardio track. It took real effort to make myself get going again. I was able to maintain the strength tra... Read more

I'm finally back to normal with regards to my muscle spasm in my lower back! It feels so good to feel good again. I couldn't believe that it would take 6 weeks to recover from this! I am able to start walking and riding my bike. It actually ... Read more

Oh, my aching back! Somehow, I did something to cause a muscle spasm in my back and it really knocked me down. It took almost two weeks before I was able to move without discomfort or out and out pain! I'm finally feeling better, but haven't ... Read more

Saturday, May 19, 2007      1 comments

All that stress caused me to slip. I was going back to some of my old eating habits - searching the kitchen for something to eat even though I wasn't really hungry. Good thing that my lifestyle change topic was on emotional eating. I guess st... Read more
