2 weeks, 6-1/2 pounds, 1 dream
I have a dream! And that dream isn't going to be realized if I keep skipping my yoga/pilates and eating Jewish Apple Cake and drinking booze everyday. No, no it is not. But in the meantime, I've lost 6.5 pounds in two weeks! Yayuh. Thass rheight... Read more
I stayed under my 1500 calories today. Excellent. I did 44 minutes of pilates. Excellent-er. I got my well-deserved back, shoulder, arms massage from my husband for being the Week 1 Winner in the Percentage of Weight Lost Challenge (between him ... Read more
Week 1: I win!
I beat my husband out in the Percentage of Weight Lost for Week 1 of our Challenge. Me: 1.44%; Him: 0% (meh). He'll do better next week though. I, on the other hand, am pre... Read more
Me v. Madge
Why do we always lapse on keeping up our fitness levels and trying to avoid horking down too much food? I am determined to have some self-discipline, by god! I am tired of living a life without it. I mean really, if Madonna can do it, SO CAN I. ... Read more
I Gave Up; I Forgot; But Now I'm Back (Also, I Overused Semicolons)
I barely remember using SparkPeople back in 2008 when I was yearning to lose weight, but upon my return to my own SparkPeople Page I realized that this never-ending battle with weight gain is, well... just that -- never-ending!
I'm back. I'... Read more
I've been reviewing my caloric intake and realized that, if I never touched alcohol, I would rarely, if ever, go over my goal of a maximum 1540 calories per day. Alcohol calories, empty, non-nutritional, belly-fat-inducing, have GOT to go. So,... Read more
I weighed myself this morning, as I have been trying to do just once a week, for the past couple weeks. First step on the scale, no pounds lost. Shock, disbelief bordering on horror. Regrouped. Second step on the scale, 1/2 pound lost. Eh? ... Read more
Dear Whomever Invented the Cranberry Vitamuffin,
Sweet lord. You are a genius. They are so delectable in their 30-second warm from the microwave, crumbling in your mouth yet so moist and chewy, succulent sweetness. Would that we were int... Read more
I worked out before work today! Twenty minutes on the treadmill! Wow. My day has a whole new glimmer to it, despite the fog and drizzle. It's going to be a good day.
(Apparently, sexy butts in tight jeans are my new motivation.)... Read more
So, I did the "Visualization Motivation" on the lower half of my Spark Points page today. You put your motivations for losing weight... grab a picture to attach to said motivation and stick it up somewhere that you can see it, like convenient... Read more
Stop looking at the long term....
I am obsessed with "What My Life Is Going To Be Like When...."
... when I lose 41 pounds ...
... when I exercise more than twice a week ...
... when my butt looks great in shorts ...
... when I consistently make healthy choices ... ... Read more
So, a week ago I weighed myself and it was 177.5 lbs. This morning I weighed myself again and got the same exact number. Not one tiny smidgeon of a budge! Augh! Of course, this weekend I wasn't conscious of my calorie intake at all and proba... Read more
Sweet Jesus, It's Time to Face the Music
My husband bought a scale today. How dare he! Now my stomach is growling just at the mere thought of hoisting my flesh up on a contraption whose sole purpose is to tell me just how much I'm weighing down this Mother Earth. Thank goodness I ha... Read more
Finally, a little help from my husband
Well, okay, I shouldn't say "finally". He has been such a great help in the past whenever I've started the whole "Making Healthy Choices" (from henceforth to be abbreviated to MHC because I use that term a lot). For example, he would eat his M... Read more
I've been in denial
I've been in total denial. Ignoring my spark page. Ignoring my eating and lack of exercise. What's the deal with that? Well, I'm back. Round two. Or maybe Round 1,904,892,456,720,981,000. Ha! I have to change my weight back to something ... Read more
