Still Tracking--Starting Week #2
I'm still tracking. Hard to believe, but I made it through the week and when I weighed myself this morning I'd lost 4 pounds. Not bad for the first we... Read more
I’ve been Sparking since May 2012. In the first six months I lost 40 pounds. I’ve spent the remainder of that time gaining 32 pounds back. What happened? Among other things, I stopped tracking. I’m on Day 2 of tracking now. I’ll have to see how ... Read more
Post Valentine's Sale
Glad Valentine's Day is over?
I went to a meeting last night and ended up talking to someone in front of the desserts table. I wasn't even temp... Read more
Confession: I tracked before Christmas and did really well. I even tracked the morning of Christmas Eve. Well, there you have it. I intended to track over the Christmas weekend, but didn't. Ack! Then I got a really bad cold (still have it). Bad ... Read more
I Hate Tracking
I hate tracking what I eat! It seems to be the only way I lose weight, though. Sigh. I'm on day 6 of tracking after not tracking consistently for, oh, um, two years or is it three? I'd forgotten how much better I feel when I eat right! I know I'... Read more
2016 Still Here
I haven't blogged in over a year! It's been a difficult year for me. I haven't been Sparking much at all, but I'm still here. I've had some health problems. Still, that's just an excuse, isn't it? I've been at SparkPeople for 4 1/2 years and los... Read more
Woo Hoo--Challenge Day 8
Whew, I made it to day 8--an entire week! I got in my exercise every day. Stayed on track with my diet. Boy, did I want some bread yesterday. Or chocolate. Chocolate would be nice. I did manage to get to bed at 10:30 every night, but that's not ... Read more

I Have A List
Confession is good for the soul, but is it good for motivation? I confess I've been doing horribly. There, I said it. I’m still floating just below 200 and still off track. I know what works for me. I know what doesn't. I know what to do.
S... Read more
Whole 30, Yes I Did It!
Yes, I did Whole 30. The entire thing. It's a nutritional reset, so when the 30 days are over you're still eating whole foods, adding one new food at a time. Here's what I learned:
I lost 7 pounds. I could have lost more, but I wasn't exerc... Read more
Just sitting here and thinking about comfort food. When someone asks what you feel like eating do you think of the past and comfort food? Or is it something we only turn to for solace and warmth?
For my mother-in-law, food was love. She pou... Read more
You Can't Always Land On Your Feet!
Oh, well! I couldn't manage to continue my 14 day sleep streak, because I got sick. I did get a flu shot, but this one obviously wasn't covered! I spend my nights roaming ... Read more
