Test done, waiting on results
Thursday, January 26, 2012      6 comments

I had my stress test this afternoon. I haven't worked out consistently in a long while (up until 3 weeks ago) so I figured it would be tough. I had to get my heart rate to 150 which wasn't a big deal at all. They like you to go above that number... Read more
Stress Test Tomorrow
Wednesday, January 25, 2012      5 comments

I think I was so stressed out from Monday's appt. that I misspoke here. I'm not in the 90th percentile to have a heart attack, but I'm that likely to have plaque. It still holds that there could be blockages up to 90%. The stress test tomorrow w... Read more

I was teary eyed this morning as I checked Spark and saw all the well wishes from my Spark friends. It reminds me how difficult it is to explain what this site is all about when people ask about it. Yes, it's a supportive community to help us lo... Read more
I feel like a ticking time bomb

The Dr. said I've gone from a 10th percentile to the 90th percentile as far as the chance of having a heart attack. Not good. I'm already on a lot of medications so that's not really an option. He said to lose the weight again, exercise consiste... Read more
Appointment tomorrow

It's been a good week nutrition wise and a pretty good week exercise wise. Once I got my calcium scoring test back, eating junk lost it's appeal. I'm building up the exercise because I've let myself get so out of shape. It will take some time, b... Read more

Some of you may know that my family has a history of heart disease. I've known for many years that I have high cholesterol and have been on many medications for it. I had it down to 180 a couple years ago when I was exercising regularly and drop... Read more
Repeat of long term goals
Sunday, January 01, 2012      9 comments

I wrote this list in August and did very little to achieve the things on the list. I've tweaked it a little, but most of it still holds true. Long Term Goals I am happy and grateful that I am 135 pounds I am happy and grateful that I... Read more

I've been listening to a podcast called "Inside Out Weight Loss". It talks a lot about how to change from the inside so you can keep the weight off for good. She suggest making New Year's Evolutions. Not a bad idea. I don't have them all ready t... Read more

Unfortunately it includes getting the flu 36 hrs. before the big day. I was feeling well enough Thurs. to try and eat a little which wasn't a great choice. We were at the in laws yesterday so it was another 1 small meal day. I'm slowly gaining b... Read more

I've been meaning to write this blog all week and am just getting around to it. I bought coupons to an indoor rock climbing place several months ago. We had to use them last weekend because they were going to expire. Rock climbing is something I... Read more

Here I am, 4 days into my latest "do over'. I've done pretty well. I was tired last night and it was getting kind of late, but I drug myself onto the treadmill. It's a lot harder than it used to be since I've been working out less than sporadica... Read more

The weekend went pretty well. I didn't get as much exercise in as I'd like, but I did keep my eating under control. Not bad considering there are chips and other goodies in the house plus brownies and cheesecake from 2 of my kid's birthdays. I'm... Read more

How many times have I started over? Too many to count. Most of my do overs lately have lasted less than a week. I spent the day shopping and prepping my food for the week. I've already got it in my tracker for tomorrow. If I can stick to it for ... Read more

I have to say I'm feeling a little guilty today. I had an email this morning that said I've earned enough votes to have the spark motivator icon added to my page. I guess when you've been around for 4 years it's bound to happen! I've been feelin... Read more
My reasons why
Sunday, August 07, 2011      8 comments

I've been on Spark for 4 years today. I'd love to say I'm a success story. I was for the first 2 years I was here. I was within 4 lbs. of goal and now I'm nearly back to my highest weight. Although I don't consider myself a success (yet) in the ... Read more
