Pick yourself up and finish what you started.
I saw this phrase on a poster in the Biggest Loser gym watching the Biggest Loser. I wrote this down on a little post-it, and pasted it to my bathroom mirror. At first, having it up there made me... Read more
The Cold VS Streak : Day 13
So I caught a cold Monday night. And why not? It was just a few short weeks ago I couldnít stop vomiting for a day. I donít need a break from being sick, Iíll just make a career out of it. Sure! It sure feels that way, anyway.
The difference i... Read more
Notes to myself.
Note number one. Stop being such a critic. I know you feel bad that you didnít do a Wii workout yesterday. But itís ok, you wanted to at minimum do your PT exercises and you did them. Granted, they were scaled way back, since you donít have the ... Read more
When the thrill is gone
Iím very happy and content with where things are at the moment. Iím staying in my calorie range for the most part, and watching what I eat. Iím eating good foods, so even when I go over Iím ok with it. Iím not binging or overeating or filling u... Read more
8 Days down! (picture included!)
I am exhausted after a full day.
I woke up feeling a little sore and achy, so I've been doing some stretches throughout the day. It's a good kind of sore and achy, because I know it means I've been doing some serious work. It's just different ... Read more

Ah crap. Itís here.
Every weekend, I dread. I know whatís coming, and I have yet learned the skills to fight it off. I have all the tools to learn the skills, I guess I just need more practice to implement them.
This weekend, though, Iím full of hope and excite... Read more
Wait, is this, could this be, muscle?
I am such a weakling. Iím not proud of it, but I readily admit it. Years at a desk job and not much activity have really done me no good. I will take the blame, though, I made bad choices and ended up as a real, true weakling.
But lately, Iíve... Read more
Halfway through this week!
Physical therapy yesterday went so-so. I went, encouraged by me spark friends. (Thanks guys!) I got my own TENS unit, which does TENS for pain and the muscle stimulation Iíím currently using for my knees. Iím supposed to go again tomorrow, my la... Read more
After yesterday, Iím finally feeling like I can do this again. I think I lost sight of that somewhere. Although I put on a brave face and talked the talk, I was really just trying to convince myself that I could be successful. I often find myse... Read more
Reaching out: I need help, advice, support!!
Weekends are killer for me. Ok, thatís not exactly precise enough. Itís not just weekends, itís any time spent at home. I donít know what it is, but when Iím at home, I binge more often, I skip exercises, I feel overall icky and unhealthy, and ... Read more
Where I've been, where I'm going
Last week, I woke up in the middle of the night and started vomiting. I continued to do so for almost 12 hours. I ended up in the ER, getting fluids and antinausea medicine. Iím feeling better now, and Iím trying to slowly get back on track. M... Read more
Feeling like Iím going to bust! AKA the belly post
I feel so big right now. And I donít necessarily mean fat, although I do feel extra chunky today. I look it as well. Yes, I really do, I swear itís not me being extra judgmental; my clothes are stretched to the max. Anyway, Iím feeling extra f... Read more
Struggling, and my lack of progress
Iíve been struggling, and I found myself slacking on Spark and putting all of my energy into work, planning a Ďstaycationí, and trying to cut our grocery budget every which way. I got overwhelmed, taking on so much at once, and trying to fix ev... Read more
