I see this so often. Don't be afraid of REAL food! ... Read more

Playing Hooky

Thursday, August 07, 2014      1 comments

Today I will be playing hooky from work. I'm not going to get in trouble or anything. I just can't handle people today. I've told you in previous posts about my coworkers, my "friends." They are difficult to handle when I'm in a ... Read more

A Butcher, A Baker, A Candlestick Maker...

Wednesday, August 06, 2014      2 comments

Today is the day when complete strangers give me the "what do you want to be when you grow up" speech. Never mind that I'm a grown adult, with a union job, who has to wear nice shoes to work, has to sit through meetings, or that I'm in a field t... Read more

The Case Of The Missing Data

Monday, July 14, 2014      5 comments

I'm starting to think it's strange that I can't find long-term success rate data regarding Spark People. I can find it for Weight Watchers. I can find it for AA. Heck, I can find it for Biggest Loser. Surely there's been a study done on th... Read more

More Fun With Mommy Dearest

Sunday, July 13, 2014      3 comments

Today will not be a good day. You know how you wake up some mornings and you just KNOW it will be a bad day? That's today. I didn't lose any weight this week. I have to spend the day with my mother, for her birthday. If you ... Read more

Lucky Level 13

Monday, July 07, 2014      2 comments

Today, I hit Level 13 here on Spark People. I'm writing this blog to remind myself that in order to see progress, to "level up," all I have to do is show up, drin... Read more

Food For Thought

Monday, June 30, 2014      3 comments

I don't eat McDonalds fries. I don't eat McDonalds anything. However, this picture makes me wonder just how many strawberries I could eat before feeling sick and never wanting to eat another strawberry again. I'm fairly sure I wouldn't make it t... Read more

Water Balloon

Sunday, May 25, 2014      3 comments

Water weight is so weird. Losing three pounds in three days is deceiving. I usually carry about five pounds of water weight when I'm stressed. I understand biology and metabolisms...but that water weight thing is always baffling to me. Read more

Pity Party

Thursday, April 24, 2014      12 comments

Today's my birthday. It's been terrible. For months now, I've been pushed and prodded into doing more work, into promoting myself, into doing things that make me uncomfortable. I thought that maybe the people who have been demanding would ... Read more

Reality Check

Sunday, March 30, 2014      6 comments

Twelve pounds. Thatís it. Just twelve. Thatís all I need to lose to reach my goal. Iíve been staring at that goal for years. When I log into Sparkpeople, I see articles about people who lost 50, 100, 250 pounds. I read about their horrifyi... Read more

The Sparker Without Spark

Saturday, January 25, 2014      12 comments

YesÖI've been gone a while. Sorry. I promise not to wander away again! But that's not what this blog is about. Every once in a while, I run into a Sparker who seems to be filled with nothing but vitriol. They are angry. They know ever... Read more

Straying From The Path

Friday, October 04, 2013      3 comments

I wandered away. I haven't recorded my food for days. I haven't officially exercised in I don't know how long...and I've paid the price for it. My jeans are a little more snug. My head's a little cloudy. My skin isn't glowing. I'm a mess really.... Read more

Arguments and the Uncomfortable Couch

Sunday, September 22, 2013      2 comments

So, last night, my husband and I had an argument. We don't often have arguments. I am always amazed at how often I see other couples arguing. I figure their lives must be pretty miserable, with all that conflict and yelling and crap. At any... Read more

The Tide Turns

Friday, August 23, 2013      7 comments

Well, yesterday went well. It went better than expected, in fact. I wore my outfit, with my size 4 Banana Republic denim skirt, and my horizontally striped, brightly colored shirt. Nobody ran away, shrieking in terror. In fact, I recei... Read more
