Glad I'm Back

A Couple of Weeks

Tuesday, February 19, 2013      2 comments

My momentum wained. What first started as a miss a weigh in to catch back up ended in a miss two weigh ins because I am ashamed. Why do I never learn? I haven't been diagnosed as depressed, can't afford to go to a psychiatrist because of no in... Read more

Weigh in Day -- Tonight

Thursday, January 17, 2013      2 comments

Hope my car's ready this afternoon, because that will be the deciding factor of whether I get to my TOPS chapter weigh in. I believe it will. I have been vigilant this week about eating and logging my foods and I think I will have a loss. I... Read more

Excuses, excuses

Wednesday, January 16, 2013      1 comments

I didn't get my exercise in last night. Rather than go to the gym, I barely made it home...well not actually home...but the car shop. My car has had a loose feeling clutch for a while and it finally gave out on the way home yesterday. I could... Read more

I did well!

I'm feeling good about my decisions over the weekend. I made the decision on Sunday when I attended an event that was part of my job....not to indulge in the sweets. They looked very good too, but today I am so glad to have made the choice to no... Read more

Kept tracking

Monday, January 07, 2013      1 comments

I kept tracking this weekend although everything wasn't perfect. I had lots of opportunities to go off on an eating spree. I found out something, though, the calorie count wasn't as bad as I thought it might be and because I logged the points an... Read more

Good start

Friday, January 04, 2013      1 comments

I had my TOPS weigh in last night. It was the first weigh in of the year and the way the records are kept -- red records gains and black records staying the same or losses -- everyone starts the year off in the black with no regard to whether yo... Read more

I'm back to work today and being honest I kind of wish I had another day off. I'm determined to have a good day though and have my Heathy Choice lunch and carrot stick and apple ready to make lunch go smoothly. I'm proud of finding a 2 mile w... Read more

Hearing a negative voice

Monday, December 31, 2012      2 comments

This is a petty thing. This is not a true thing, but this is a thing that is going around in my head. I have a nice boss. She is a small, petite person and she is very concious of her appearance. She is a former cheerleader. She confided to me t... Read more

Suggest some rewards

I'm setting up a goal of losing 50 lbs this year and I want to give myself incremental rewards. I know that I had seen some of you that have done this and I would like to be pointed in the direction of your goals so that I can see if any of your... Read more

Why do numbers make so much difference?

Friday, June 08, 2012      3 comments

Last week I was highly motivated. I started vigilantly logging in and accumulating the Spark points and tracking my food. I made good choices and I said to myself "Take One Day at a Time" so I wouldn't be overwhelmed by the discipline of it all ... Read more
