Another Year, Another Chance to Break the Circle

Tuesday, January 01, 2013      1 comments

I have been a member of SparkPeople since 2007. My most productive year was 2008. Since then, I have repeated this circle. January is the time for fresh goals and fresh motivation. I have adopted some good habits but around October each year I s... Read more

Time to Try Again

Wednesday, April 27, 2011      1 comments

It is not January 1st. It is not my birthday. It is not the first day of Spring. (Or is it?) But, it is time to try again. It has been two years since my last blog entry. In that time I went through another cycle of loss in summer and regain in ... Read more

Breakthrough At Last!

Saturday, May 02, 2009      4 comments

After 10 months, I have finally broken through the 206.5 plateau! I hit 206.5 back in June 2008 and there I stayed bouncing around. Two weeks ago the scale started to budge in the downward direction. Only a little at first, but this last week it... Read more

I am so excited that I have to share! Saturday turned out to be a very nice day in North Central Kansas. It was about 67 degrees with a light breeze and NO RAIN! My husband was able to get our garden ready for planting as I cleaned all the garba... Read more

Reasons or Excuses?

There are a dozen different reasons that I havenít started an exercise routine. Reasons? Yes, some, but I will admit that others are excuses. ★ This year has been busier than most. ★ My schedule is very erratic ★ The w... Read more

"I Will Be Good Tomorrow"

Friday, April 10, 2009      2 comments

I have lost 4 lbs. since January. However, this has only brought me to the place I was before the holidays (206.5). I sat on my plateau again for a while, but now the scale goes up and down. I know the cause and have the power to stop it. I am ... Read more

January is the time for fresh goals and fresh motivation. This year is no different. After hitting a plateau, my motivation disappeared. I adopted some good habits last year and I lost 10 lbs. Now it is time to renew those habits and start some... Read more

Kick It Up a Notch

Monday, August 18, 2008      1 comments

To get past my plateau I am going to have to kick it up a notch. I am currently walking for 20 minutes during my lunch hour. Last week I attempted to start running 2-3 times a week and doing a crunch routine 3-4 times a week. Strengthening my ... Read more

New Scale

Monday, August 04, 2008      0 comments

We had a dial scale that was years old. Our scale was not always consistent. I could step on the scale twice within a 5 minute period and get two different weights. The amount would be different by 1 or 2 lbs. Our scale was not accurate... Read more

Healthy Eating II

Friday, June 13, 2008      0 comments

Meatless meals. I try to plan one evening menu a week that is meatless. Sometimes this means going meatless twice during the week as most recipes make enough for four, but there are only two of us. My husband isnít big on the idea, but he does... Read more

Healthy Eating I

Wednesday, June 04, 2008      0 comments

Included in those goals was a renewed effort for healthy living. I got off to a rather slow start. My motivation was low. Then I read an article here on sp that made a world of difference. (I can't find it now.) I wanted to eat healthy, but ... Read more

New Goals Set

Wednesday, May 21, 2008      0 comments

A lot has happened since my last entry. I went through the holidays without giving much attention to a healthy lifestyle and I gained weight. When the new year came, I did not make resolutions, I made a set of goals instead. By moving toward ... Read more

Goal Missed

Wednesday, October 10, 2007      6 comments

Well, my first goal just passed yesterday. My anniversary came and I still weigh 205 pounds. I am still trying to build healthy habits. It is harder than I expected to get the weight off. How do I feel about this? I am disappointed, but not... Read more
