Surprising weight loss, imperfection, and rewards

Thursday, August 30, 2012      5 comments

So after a not very healthy dinner last night (gouda, peppercorn salami, wheat crackers, wine, and cinnamon gummy bears) I weighed in this morning down 4 pounds from my last weigh in. So I don't know what's up, but I'll take it! I do kno... Read more

Need a little more oompf...

Over the weekend I weighed in at my first goal, 172. I had been hovering between 1.5 and 2 pounds just above this for about two weeks, so I was really excited. Then official weigh-in day comes and...174?!?!? Frustrating. I know that I have b... Read more

back in the saddle

Tuesday, August 21, 2012      2 comments

A recurring theme around these pages: dragging oneself (or for the more sprightly among us, hopping) back on the wagon. Boyfriend's birthday is over, time to get back on track. He's going back to school this week so getting back in to a routi... Read more

tired = hungry? why?

Thursday, August 09, 2012      5 comments

Why do I have the urge to eat/drink when I'm tired? Is it because the motion of chewing or sipping something keeps me awake? Does my body think the calories will give me the energy my lack of sleep has me missing? I have some neck problem... Read more

thoughts, reflections, and inspirations

Wednesday, August 08, 2012      4 comments

A couple of thoughts for this morning: I noticed myself running my hands on my waist today. It's because it feels different - less lumpy, or something. NSV? I think it might be! I was reading the blog of fellow sparker ELLISH and fo... Read more

Inappropriate comment?

Tuesday, August 07, 2012      3 comments

Isn't "I'm sorry, but..." a cop out? Does starting a sentence with this phrase (or its equivalent) excuse the judgment/rudeness/meanness that is almost assuredly to follow? I have been kind of upset today about some comments I've seen post... Read more

weekends are really hard!

Tuesday, August 07, 2012      3 comments

The weekend was really lovely, went hiking with the boyfriend and his 6 year old daughter. Sunday had brunch with a friend, so I didn't even bother tracking my food that day because I felt like it was going to be too hard to put in everything I... Read more

Love and weight loss

Friday, August 03, 2012      1 comments

My boyfriend, THEOTUS (aka Jeremy), wrote a blog post that was really sweet about how I help and motivate him. I don't think he realizes how much he does the same for me. Read more

financial squeeze but skinny jeans fit with ease

Wednesday, August 01, 2012      4 comments

Well, the scale is totally wack-a-doodle, because today it says I'm down 9 pounds, which is thrilling. Apparently me and my boyfriend's official weigh-in day is tomorrow though. If I'm down another pound I will have reached my first goal and w... Read more

One week in

Tuesday, July 31, 2012      3 comments

So I'm down 5.5 pounds this first week. That's really exciting. I'm sure I won't be able to keep up this pace but it was really encouraging. Of course my boyfriend lost 10, so I'm jealous. But he does have more weight to lose than me and is ... Read more

Well, my first weekend as a sparker definitely gave me some food for thought! Get it, food? Haha! No, but seriously, I went over my calorie allotment on both Saturday and Sunday, though I did manage to get in some decent exercise time. I als... Read more

Made it to Friday

Friday, July 27, 2012      2 comments

I have to start with the part that I'm most happy/amazed about: I've already lost 6 pounds. I'm sure it was mostly water weight but it's still really exciting and very motivating. But then, why try to negate the positive by saying "I'm sure ... Read more

Time to Start

Tuesday, July 24, 2012      3 comments

So this weekend my boyfriend and I were weighing ourselves and I was the heaviest I have ever been. This has been creeping up on me, and I've been aware of it, but for whatever reason wasn't ready to make weight loss a priority. A Tuesday may ... Read more
