Now that TOM has come & gone, life is returning to normal, as is a slow & steady weight loss. I did a weigh-in today, and I realized that I'm 10 lbs away from another weight loss goal. When I was 16, I decided that I had to lose weight, an... Read more

I like the concept of SparkStreaks. I started tracking a couple here and there, and before I knew it, I was meeting all my streaks, and surpassing them. I figured since I can manage those streaks consistently, it must be time to set a new stre... Read more

Friday, November 06, 2009      1 comments

When I first started on my weight loss journey 7 years ago, I wore 48G or 48H, depending on the style of the bra. They used to be very expensive, I could only get them through the Sears catalogue, and I usually ordered anywhere from 10-30 bras ... Read more

Monday, November 02, 2009      2 comments

Another weekend gone by, and another 2 days of being above my calorie range. As is often the case with weekends, pasta was on the menu for supper on Saturday, and spaghetti was the poison of choice. I still can't get the kids to eat whole whea... Read more

It's almost November, the leaves are almost gone on the trees, the wind is blowing, but it's warm out, and I got outside today for some cardio. My Guy and I have been doing some deconstruction in the back yard since we moved into the house ... Read more

It's taken 7 years, several attempts, many recommitments, many miles walked, and a supportive side-kick, but I've finally lost 100 pounds. I'm happy with it, and with the help of Sparkpeople, I know it will stay off. When I joined SP back ... Read more

Wednesday, October 28, 2009      1 comments

I was doing so well yesterday. I had good meals, my lunch hour walk was refreshing and envigorating, and I even brought an extra piece of fruit to have for a snack at work. I don't normally eat fruit mid-afternoon, I find that the natural ... Read more

How I get a little more exercise in

Tuesday, October 27, 2009      2 comments

Quite some time ago, I realized that the only real way I would permanently lose weight is if I got off my big butt and moved it regularly. A few years ago, I finally sucked it up and started walking at lunch hour. For me, that particular exercis... Read more

I'm still struggling with food and fitness on the weekends. I don't know if that will ever change before I retire (in another 20 years or so!), but I'd sure like to try to change it. This weekend was an odd one, I don't normally go out Fri... Read more
