TIME TO STOP WATCHING
I think I've finally hit the point where I'm going to stop watching all of you actively work on your healthy lifestyles. I read your blogs, almost daily, and I think - heck yeah! I'm gonna start doing that - and then I don't. Baby steps for m... Read more
DAY THREE OF MY FITNESS STREAK
I've done my 'walk away the pounds' video three days in a row. My (only) vow to myself this time around was to do 10 minutes of continuous fitness every day. So far, so good...... Read more
BIG OLE BLOG
Okay. I meant to do this yesterday, mainly because Mondays are my day of 'start again'. I went to my niece's wedding this past weekend and had a major wake-up call. My 3 sisters and I were all there, and we had a lot of pictures taken. Anoth... Read more
SCUB, NOT HALT
I've seen, various times throughout the Sparkpeople blogs the term 'halt'. And you're to ask yourself before you dive into the food, am I Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired? Maybe that's why your nose is in the fridge. I've tried this theory, an... Read more
MAKING IT FUN...
I just read the '7 habits of highly effective dieters', and one thing really struck me. They make it fun. Right now, I'm not really having fun - because I'm not making it fun. When I lost all my weight before (6 years ago, then gained back al... Read more
GET UNDER 200
I've been up to 210, down to 187, now back up to 204 (at start). I'm down to 201.4 since my last weigh in, so my next goal is to get under 200. The goal after that will be to stay under 200 until I get close to 195. Then my goal will be to ge... Read more
Why do we call it comfort food when we overeat? I'm so guilty of that. Fast food on the way home. Frozen pizza with extra cheese. Comfort food for me, for the most part. I wonder why I consider it comfort food. I'm uncomfortable with mysel... Read more
I have got to get back to my inspired healthy eating. For a while, I was doing great. Consciously choosing my foods, stopped eating when I was full. I know what the problem is. I've let my finances get out of hand (again), and it's stressing... Read more
DAY ONE OF ME...
Enough, already. I've had quite a few one day streaks - and a lot of those weren't complete days. I have it in me to lose this weight and exercise my way to a more attractive body, but I haven't been doing it. This past weekend, I ate wrong, ... Read more
WHAT'S THE WORSE THING THAT COULD HAPPEN?
I've not been 'working' my sparkpeople diet. Although I've been a member for a few months now, I'm still not doing what I know I need to be doing. I'll track, weigh, walk, drink water, etc., for a week (maybe), then slack off for a couple week... Read more
I BROKE DOWN AND WEIGHED
I DID IT! I wish I would have read your comments sooner. I've been away from my computer, or I would have weighed sooner. You're right GAIIAGIIRL, it's just a number. I need to work on loving myself no matter what. The big news is, though, ... Read more
AFRAID TO WEIGH
I've been sick for the last two weeks, and haven't been eating much. My brain tells me I have to have lost weight, but I'm afraid to weigh and find out I'm wrong. I know that's crazy, but I'm not always rational about weighing in. I never wei... Read more
