A year since I posted. Why did I quit using Sparkpeople? Because it took up time for a busy person? Because everyone else came first? Bad, bad reasons.
This past March I began seeing a counselor for stress due to a number of family and profes... Read more

This week I lost two pounds. How did I do it? For me jumping on the scale is misery or joy or just a great big addiction. This week I put it under the bed and I didn't get on it from Sunday to Sunday. That's right, I weighed myself once a week.

Why am I letting a nasty person control my eating?
The other day my dieting buddy said to me, "I had to swallow a comeback to that person." I said, "And we do that literally! Eating when someone upsets or stresses us."
I have a job where I have to be nice to a few people who feel it is their ... Read more
Pee when YOU want to! Sharing the miracle

One week later
I am down three pounds.
But more to the point, I stayed in my calorie range for two days AND one day I was even below my calorie range. Exercised for 45 minutes to an hour except Sunday.
Not easy but not hard either.
Goal for this week:... Read more
I have a problem with the scale. It is not helping me lose weight. I jump on it every day and then feel good or bad depending on the result.
