Help me, I think I'm falling...
A tribute to Joni Mitchell, who I just read about in Girls Like Us. But I mean it literally. Yesterday I fell on my icy driveway after coming home from the health club. Fortunately, it wasn't too bad. Last year I fell and hurt my back pretty... Read more
Maybe it is coming together
I think my biggest goal for the moment is not to eat processed sugars. That mainly means ice cream, candy, cookies and other baked goods (cakes and pies). It goes without saying that it also includes soda, but that is almost a non-issue for me... Read more
This Weight Loss Thing is a Pip!
To those who read the Stephanie Plum books, the above comment is my tribute to Grandma Mazur LOL. It seems like I have had a huge weight swing in the last few days. Right now it is downward. This is where I am not sure that a daily weigh in i... Read more
Day could have been a little better
I finally went to the health club, and my head was so not on straight that I had a very short work out. Part of the problem is that my husband is an extremely difficult person, and he was in a mood today. I am still not quite sure why. Howeve... Read more
First day of New Year
Could have eaten better. Had impromptu after dinner get together, and I had gelato and some cookies. However, the good news is that we went to the movies in the afternoon, and all I had was water! No soda, popcorn or candy. We saw Benjamin B... Read more
Time to start anew
I weighed in at 194 this morning. This will be my starting weight for 2009. Still aspire to lose 40 pounds. Believe me, I would be thrilled.
I ran into a problem during the second half of the year. I stopped logging my weight. Grante... Read more
Thanks to my team leaders
Today I received a Spark Mail from the leader of the Goonies team, Chunkster63 (John). He wanted the team to know how much he appreciates the leaders.
In this post, I would like to thank the leaders of my teams. I especially love the lead... Read more

So how did I do?
Not so well.
I definitely have the walking under control. I have even added a new goal, which is to average 15,000 steps a day, and I am achieving that. Actually, I think I need to shake up my exercise a little. ... Read more
New Month, (Hopefully) New Me
Ok, I am going to try some new approaches.
If you look at my Spark Page or any messages I post, you will see that I have lost 40 lbs. with SparkPeople. This is true, and I am very proud of it.
However, if you peel back the onion a lit... Read more
Doing a Little Better

After splurging a little with a couple of birthday celebrations, ... Read more
Happy Birthday to Me
Today is my birthday, and along with the birthday comes a great deal of introspection. My weight loss has stalled, and I really can't call it a "plateau" because I know perfectly well that I have not been as good as I should be. I don't even t... Read more
After creating an entry on 5/15 about how I've lost 40 lbs. and how happy I am with the way things are going, I am suddenly struggling. Emotional eating has gotten the best of me. I got back on track on Thursday (two days ago), but then yester... Read more
I am amazed
I have lost 40 lbs. since starting Spark at the beginning of December, 5 1/2 months ago. My original goal (as suggested by Spark) was to lose 50 lbs. by November 18. I think that was 50 weeks. At the time, I felt that this really was not enou... Read more
Welcoming Myself to the 21st Century
This is my first blog entry ever!!! Considering that I am a writer by profession (a technical writer, not a novelist), I probably should have done this years ago.
I have been tracking my thoughts and progress in my Spark Journal, but I have... Read more
