Good Food, Good Fellowship, Still Under on Food and a Day Off From Exercise

Saturday, February 27, 2010      3 comments

Feeling Dumpy Today!

Thursday, February 25, 2010      5 comments

I'm in an inbetween stage. One size is so large, slacks don't stay up, the next size down is still a smidge tight. One of these days, I'll get a full length mirror so that I will know what I look like before I leave the house! I feel chunky an... Read more

Potpourri of Thoughts

Tuesday, February 23, 2010      3 comments

Yesterday, a friend showed me her pedometer and it's the same model several SparkFriends have recommended to me. I had hoped to buy it from her, but she recently started using it again...I can't afford one in the foreseeable future so I was sel... Read more

Friday: On Track

Friday, February 19, 2010      1 comments

What a wonderful day! A good day at work, on track with food and water and exercise! I am slowly starting to see that my energy level is improving. After I walk, I have sustained energy for a longer period of time. However, I still get very sl... Read more

Today is a Victory!

Thursday, February 18, 2010      3 comments

The fact that today was a very nice day for me highlights the difference that SparkPeople (website and community) have made in my life. I was so tempted to eat everything in sight and not be accountable yesterday - take the day off as it were. ... Read more

Thank You, SparkPeople!

Wednesday, February 17, 2010      3 comments

This morning, I huddled with some teams with "I need support". I have been amazed by the responses! I have not reached out successfully before (preSP). When I posted that, I didn't know what to expect. I am humbled by the generosity of people... Read more

Stuck? I feel like a banana slug!

Sunday, February 14, 2010      2 comments

This morning was my weigh-in and measure morning. During the week, I had stepped on the scale out of curiosity and REALLY liked the number, but I didn't count it. I said at the time that I didn't put stock in the number, but, based on my disap... Read more
