I'm starting to really have issues with "community leaders" and "experts" here on SP who respond compulsively to posts by Sparkers, without apparently reading the posts. It's almost like they have a file filled with"copy-paste" responses and eag... Read more
I'm having one of those days where progress can't come fast enough!
I want to weigh 120 right now!
Slow and steady wins the race. I know it does, but today my inner tortoise is nowhere to be found.
All day, I've had to tell myself... Read more
Today I had to work with my former best-friend-forever. He was my buddy. I have never been so close to anyone in my whole life. I trusted him completely.
Then our friendship got complicated. (I think you know what I mean.) So, we stopped be... Read more
I'm starting to suspect that my calorie range is too low. Three times this week, I have eaten above my range, and I lost a pound.
I have checked and rechecked my recommendations from SP. I have adjusted my activity. I have checked with othe... Read more
I hurt my foot. I messed it up while walking...and now I feel like an albatross. Seriously. I am not in any way graceful. With the weekend swiftly approaching, I am struggling with the urge to exercise and at the same time know I need to heal, o... Read more
I ignored my scale for two days, and when I hopped on the scale this morning, I had hit 137! I am just shy of halfway from my goal. Hooray! Two pounds in one week was an unexpected surprise. So, I was having a pretty good day.

I haven't weighed myself in two days. I've been so very busy, that I just don't have time in the morning to indulge in that ritual. I feel like I'm flying without a net.
Now, before you tell me how great that is, let me say that seeing that... Read more
I started watching Biggest Loser. I should know better. When those folks hop up on the scale and get sad about their loss of four pounds in a week...I sit here with my jaw open. If I lost four pounds in a week...
1. I would know that it was... Read more
I’m not hungry. In fact I feel kind of sick. Now, I can’t decide if I feel sick because I am sick OR I feel sick because of my day. (I’m guessing it’s the second answer.)
My day was okay for a while. When I posted my last blog, I was in fai... Read more
Well, I'm stuck at 140 again. It's been a week now. I figured I'd hop on the scale today and would be 139...but no.
HOWEVER, my pants keep falling down. I pulled them out of the dryer and put them on. I drove to work and as I was walking do... Read more
I just saw a Sparker asking for advice.
"What am I doing wrong?" the Sparker wailed.
I open up her meal tracker...and she has a coke for breakfast every morning.
Who has COKE for breakfast? It's not even a diet coke! (Not that di... Read more
Today, I hopped on my scale and it did a little dance. It was doing this dainty little darting motion between 140 and 139. Teasing, it would hover for half a second over the 139. I could hear it say, "Oh! 139! Do you want it? Huh? Do you? Ha! Yo... Read more
I see people talking on the message boards about the choices they make. They talk about how they failed to make the right choices or they beat themselves up about not being able to force themselves to eat within their range. Often I start typing... Read more
I was reading through my nutrition tracker, feeling a little sad that I went over my calories twice last week...when I noticed something strange. My tracker said that I had eaten Sour Cream & Onion potato chips. I sat there staring at it. Those ... Read more
