A New Edition to the Family...
So we just adopted a kitten. Totally unexpected. I was minding my business, working from home when a friend tells me she found a kitten on the Buckman Bridge. Anyone who knows Jacksonville knows it would have never survived if she had not tur... Read more
Hello SP World!
So I finished the 4-day "cleanse", lost 6 lbs, and then went back to a somewhat normal diet. I ate red meat, I'm back on alcohol, and yesterday's dinner, although still well under my calorie requirement, consisted only of fried foods. Hmmm...

Flat Belly Diet, Day 4
Hmmm.. I like this. I'm not hungry, and I feel really good. I am down about 6 lbs. I will weight tomorrow AM.
I don't miss the salt at all. I can taste the food better I think. It's weird. I DO miss the alcohol. I'm not even going t... Read more
Flat Belly Diet, Day 1
So breakfast was OK. I didn't feel hungry afterward. Total cereal, soy milk, raw sunflower seeds, and applesauce. The only thing I didn't care for were the raw sunflower seeds. I will roast or toast them myself with no salt. That's allowed,... Read more
OK -- So here we go again? I hope not. I am at my wits end. I HAVE to get this weight off, and I can't do the stop/start thing. I am going to try something new. I am following the Flat Belly Diet to get me jump started.

Finding my Balance
So much for the blogging. I see it's been a week. I intended to blog much more often than weekly.
Well food intake is - for the most part - under control. I had a lapse this weekend, but I sort of condoned it for the weekend, or for Sa... Read more
The Need for Blogging...
I am hanging in here - tracking my food like I know I MUST. This is what worked for me last time when I lost 47 lbs. I HAVE to stay close to SP. Track my food and exercise, blog, post, encourage others and get back to being a valuable Communi... Read more
Conquering the Owl...
Good morning Sparkfriends,
Things are going pretty well in spite of the limited exercise. My eating is officially UNDER CONTROL! I managed to NOT eat any of my favorite Wise Onion & Garlic potato chips last week, and any of you who know m... Read more
I broke my toe last week. I was just starting the C25K program (week 2), and trying to get in the groove of working out when I walked into the wall and fractured my toe. I am supposed to be on crutches, but that's a horror show in itself, and I ... Read more
Two steps forward, three steps back.
I got plans for the rest of the August weekends, and they include my hubbie's birthday 8/24 and family coming up this weekend, and the one after that and the one after that...
I have 2 cakes to make, and none of them are leaving my house (m... Read more
The Weekends... Junk and Drinks...
I guess we all go a little crazy. I have noticed that my caloric intake is over 1600 on Sat/Sun.
I think it's important to track everything I eat. Even the junk and the drinks... At least then I can look back at history and see WHY I may ... Read more
The *Almost* Irresistable Temptation of...
I'm trying to desensitize myself. I am nearly powerless if I am in the same aisle with this owl. If my eye meets the owl's eye -- it's on!
I will skip meals all day in order to devour a bag of these. I don't even want to share them. FOr... Read more
Piece of Cake!
I just want to share my latest little masterpiece created for a friend's baby shower. The top says, "Welcome Baby Sophia!"
This is my art, not food.... Read more
It's All Good!
I feel good. I feel like I am back in the swing of things. I am eating well and working out. It's not been a week yet, but I know I just have to keep things in line, one day at a time. No taking successes for granted either.
I am also t... Read more
Love the Trackers...
Honestly, I forgot how much I actually *like* using the food tracker and the recipe calculator. I love being able to plug my food in in advance and then change my mind or make adjustments if i see I need more fat or more carbs, etc. I usually ... Read more
