Back on Track

Friday, January 04, 2008      2 comments

Who would've thought it would take this long to get back on track. The passing of my stepfather in August set many changes in motion. I had to get all of my mother's affairs in line to make sure she was taken care of. Who knew how much of an o... Read more

All I can say is 'Wow' to all the supportive messages and emails I've received. Thank you to everyone. I feel like I've found a second family with the people here at SparkPeople. Who would have thought that from the first time I signed on and ... Read more

passing of loved one

Sunday, August 26, 2007      7 comments

It is hard to lose a loved one. What is harder though is to watch a loved one weaken into someone you don't recognize. I have watched this transition with my stepfather for almost a month now. He finally left us and went to a place of peacefulne... Read more

Finally, I weighed yesterday and I am down 1 lb. I am hoping that I am finally over my plateau hump and will have some consistent losses on the scale now. I'm trying some new strategies thanks to Camp Gonna Be Fit and feel like I am developi... Read more

Alone time

Tuesday, July 10, 2007      0 comments

My family is away for 3 days so I have time to devote to just me. I can eat what I want and not worry about whether everyone else likes it. I'm free to exercise whenever. I know I miss my family, but it is nice to have this time to myself for ... Read more

Emotional Eating

Sunday, July 08, 2007      0 comments

Let me just preface this by saying that I am not looking for sympathy from everyone who happens to read this blog. I am simply exploring and putting into writing why I think I may be a mindless, emotional eater right now to see if I can come u... Read more

Camp Gonna Be Fit

Monday, June 25, 2007      1 comments

Well, I arrived at Camp on Friday, June 22nd. So far, so good. I think it's going to be a blast. I'm looking forward to getting 'Sparked' up again. This blasted plateau is making me crazy. I know part of it is all of the stress I'm under right n... Read more

'Streak' success

Saturday, June 09, 2007      3 comments

I started my 'Streak' last Sunday to eat 4 servings of vegetables a day. I was successful this entire week and even had more than 4 on some days. I cut back a little on fruit servings but not totally because fruits are important also. I feel m... Read more

Mixed emotions

Wednesday, June 06, 2007      2 comments

I saw a coworker at a meeting today. She has lost 17 pounds in just one month. I asked her how she is doing it and she told me that she is doing a diet called 'The Fat Flush'. She said it's a detox diet. Part of me is happy for her and part of... Read more

Back on 5/16 I was able to say that I lost 1 pound in May. And where am I today... still at 184. I'm frustrated and part of me is angry. I've changed my eating habits and have worked hard at staying focused. I just don't know why the weigh... Read more

Too confident?

Sunday, May 27, 2007      2 comments

I've started making good choices as far as nutrition, but I think I've become too confident in my 'eyeballing' of portion sizes. I think I need to go back to basic strategy and weigh/measure all portions. I do it with easy items (liquids, nuts... Read more


Sunday, May 20, 2007      2 comments

I opened up on a Message Board today about some very personal challenges I've had in my life. I'm not sure why I did it. I wrote about things that I typically don't talk about to others, things that I know have shaped my life to be what it is t... Read more

A moment

Monday, May 14, 2007      0 comments

Yesterday was Mother's Day. The day started out wonderful with healthy blueberry scones, coffee press coffee and a homemade gift (the best kind) from my daughter. As the time grew closer for my mother to arrive, I could feel the anxiety bui... Read more

One pound down!

Thursday, May 10, 2007      2 comments

I weighed myself this morning and I'm down 1 lb. I am so excited about that. It makes me realize that what I'm doing is the right thing. Sometimes we get frustrated and feel like we can't wait for our results. I've been there before, many times,... Read more

My goal for this week is to look for pictures to use in my Motivation Worksheet. I think it will really help me with knowing where I want to be and how I want to get there. This time is not just a 'diet' to lose weight. I really feel like I h... Read more
