Maintaining mode?

Tuesday, April 19, 2016      0 comments

After I had my little breakdown (from losing 1 pound in 6 weeks of incredibly hard effort) and seeing my doctor, I decided I needed to tone it down a bit. I'm so close to what had previously been my maintenance range (3 pounds) that the amount o... Read more

What the doctor said

Sunday, April 10, 2016      4 comments

I went to the doctor on Friday to get a refill on some medication. First, I brought up my blood pressure, which has been getting higher and higher and she said that it's time to get put on medication for it. "It's a shame. You're so young," she ... Read more

I didn't want to write this blog because I didn't want it to be true. I hate what I'm going through right now but I need to be honest or I'm not going to get through this. I've kept weighing myself every day this week, including this morni... Read more

When I first joined Spark almost 7.5 years ago, I was losing weight quickly and tracked it with weekly weigh-ins. Suddenly, I said to myself that I didn't want to wait a week to see my progress! I wanted to weigh myself every day! It was th... Read more

760!!!! I am so freaking excited! I was terrified of what I was getting myself into when I made my newest playlist. But I did it and I am thrilled that I broke my last record! And now we'll see if I'll do it again next Saturday. :)... Read more

Disappointing weigh in, as predicted

Friday, April 01, 2016      0 comments

No gain, no loss. I've been down all day. But it did make me face a few things. First, I know I was eating more calories than I wanted to admit over this past week. I wasn't weighing and measuring everything. No spreadsheet will work if th... Read more

Part Two: Workout success! And nerdy data.

Thursday, March 31, 2016      2 comments

Welcome to Part Two! Part One was a depressing blog about my food addiction (which actually should be updated because I just ate 220 calories of Dove milk chocolate bunny from my youngest daughter so now I'll have a 5130 calorie deficit for the... Read more

I decided to make a 2 part blog entry today because I have two different ideas swirling around in my head and each is coming from a completely separate part of me. I don't have the energy to try to separate the two. First is FOOD. I don't t... Read more

Oh no, Easter Candy.

Sunday, March 20, 2016      5 comments

I have bags and bags of Easter candy on the floor of my closet. So far it hasn't made me too crazy, but I know it's coming. I know it, because I know ME. My kids are very sweet and always want to share their candy with me, so even if I manage to... Read more

60 minutes, 635 calories!

Friday, March 11, 2016      1 comments

Dang. So, yesterday I had the hardest time being motivated to do my workout and I actually quit 4.5 minutes early and burned 500 calories (according to the who-knows-how-accurate calculation of my machine). Today I decided that instead of watchi... Read more

Heck yes a new machine for me!

Things are going really well! I'm down 8 pounds in a little over a month. That's ok. I'm working out everyday and staying in my calorie range. We traveled to Delaware for Jim's aunt's memorial service and ate out for four meals straight, but I c... Read more

I've been at this for a couple weeks now and it's getting better! My workouts have been going great. Eating under my calorie range is tough but I know how to do it and I know that I need to learn that self-control all over again. That's all... Read more

So glad for a good goal!

So today is day 4 of fighting the compulsive eating beast. Day 1 was easy, the other three so far have been tough. First, it's such a habit to eat, it's soothing, it's comforting. It's what I do to feel cozy on these cold days, to celebrate with... Read more
