A resounding THANK YOU
I have been using Sparkpeople off and on since high school when I was a spark teen and I have never noticed that there are messages attached to spark goodies. I've had this account since 2010 and just went through and read all the kind words of ... Read more
Ramblings and Positivity
I just had a fun thought. So like many of us, I don't generally have very high self-esteem. I am self conscious and not happy with my appearance. I can look at a photo of myself and point out every little flaw while others tell me I look beautif... Read more
My September exercise challenge!
I made up a little challenge for this month to get some exercise everyday and it
has really motivated me, so I thought I would share it!
Have you ever seen those Advent calendars that come with little prizes everyday? When I was little I rem... Read more
Treating myself like a child!
Lately I've been feeling like this is NEVER GOING TO END.
I feel like I have been on a diet for a thousand years, and this weekend I realized something needed to change.
I've had more cheat days in the past two months then I did from January... Read more
The scale almost learned to fly this morning. Out the window, that is.
After two weeks of eating in my range every single day, and working out 6 days a week, I have lost a grand total of:
This morning I weighed in giddy ... Read more
Please don't call yourself fat.
Spark people can be a great motivator. One of my favorite things to do on here is look at the motivational spark pages and admire the amazing weight loss that I hope someday to achieve. Before and after pictures are always fun to marvel at, unti... Read more
Starting to live again.
I haven't been on Spark in a longggg time. I remember when I was so devoted to using it everyday, I used to feel sad for the people who suddenly disappeared. Then I became one of them. Although I stopped strictly counting my calories around the ... Read more
Losing the spark
Today is my last day of finals, and then I'll have my associates degree and be done with junior college. I've lost 33 lbs, which is 3 away from my half-way goal. And despite my extreme lack of exercise and terrible eating habits, I've still mana... Read more
Trip and fall.
I'm so sick of counting calories. Honestly, it is a pain in the butt to come home from working and being in class for 12 hours and have to figure out every ingredient in my soup and then break down how much of each thing I used, and how many cal... Read more
My hips don't lie.
And neither does the tape measure. Although I continue to steadily drop pounds, my hips remain at a tight 45 inches. Actually, after my initial drop of almost 3 inches in my first couple of months, I've hardly lost inches anywhere in the past tw... Read more
P.S. Universe, I'm down 20 pounds.
This blog is completely pointless, other than to celebrate hitting the 20 pound loss mark! Yayyy! I went into this mornings weigh in knowing that I only worked out twice last week (not even Jillian Michaels can hold my attention for a full month... Read more
So I eat mostly vegetarian anyways, but after watching about an hour of the documentary "Food Inc.," I'm getting rid of it entirely. I still plan to eat eggs and possibly fish, but right now I can't even look at beef, pork, or chicken without fe... Read more
Who made me fat?
I decided to take some before pictures yesterday, even though I'm about 15 lbs lighter than my "real" before. I'm smiling in all of them though, so once I lose the weight I'm either going to have to smile even bigger, or edit them to make myself... Read more
My birthday was on Monday, and while I didn't plan to eat terribly, by dinner time I was ready for some cake.
Unfortunately I apparently think my birthday lasts for a week.
Wednesday I got on the scale and saw I'd gained two pounds. Unaccept... Read more
I feel like I could lift a car right now.
I got a little pumped up about the exercise today and put in 80 minutes which equals 600 calories burned! Woohooooo! I think I have to say thanks to Jillian Michaels and "The 30 Day Shred" for kicking ... Read more
