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

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

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
