Had a massive wake up call this week when I tried on my costume for a performance I've been working towards for a couple of months and COULDN'T GET THE ZIPPER DONE UP! In the end I managed, but it was a struggle. I realised I can't keep say... Read more
New goals

I'm back again after a long absence. Trying to figure out a new way to make this work for me. I've got a fitbit and that's getting me moving more and I have synced up that with this so I can track how I'm doing more easily. I'm gradually getting... Read more

I've been off the radar for a bit, but I'm back. I've been busy meeting someone amazing and this rather knocked everything else out of my thoughts. We've been going out for 2 weeks but both agree it feels like so much longer. He's told his Mum a... Read more

I'm sure many of you have had a 'light-bulb' moment during your Spark-People journey. Well I just had one, right here sat at my kitchen table drinking my morning cup of tea: Having broken up with my husband earlier this year has dented my c... Read more

Not blogged in a while and so not sure where to start. This means the following will probably be a stream of consciousness, but that's ok. Had a run of 10 days on SP, but this got broken by a trip to London for my cousin's 40th. Now I'm bac... Read more

I'm back here, which is a positive step. I have re-gained weight, however, I plan to start tracking and exercising again so I will not dwell on the negative. I stalled my 'danger snack' avoidance at 41 days - just shy of 42, which would have bee... Read more

In my life I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment - there are just so many things to sort out! I'm in the process of re-mortgaging my flat so I can buy out my ex-husband. This also involves solicitor letters and legal documents - bleugh! At... Read more

Made it to 35 days without eating my danger snacks. So far there have been the odd day I can't count as part of this but not many - about 5 or 6. I have turned down several cakes and biscuits at work and not had any chocolate or cheese as snacks... Read more

I haven't blogged for a while but then I have been pretty busy and also away from home. I was asked to do marking of senior art work this year and so spent 3 days in a B&B in Dalkeith. The marking was fun and I learned loads from doing it that w... Read more
Accountability Day 9
Thursday, May 14, 2015      7 comments

Thought a more thorough check-in was due. After 9 days I have managed a total of 8 avoiding the snacks I have identified as my weaknesses. I decided not to count the day where I had a bit of cake at my friend's because although it was out of pol... Read more
Accountability - Day 2 (and a request for opinion)
Thursday, May 07, 2015      8 comments

So today I have a wee conundrum for anyone who would like to help. I'd arranged to visit a colleague with some of my other ones as she's recently had a new baby and we needed a good catch up. I knew she would probably offer us cake or biscuits s... Read more

I did it! No snacks today apart from some healthy almonds. No chocolate, no cake, no cheese, no biscuits! Ok, let's see if I can do it tomorrow too. Thanks for all the helpful advice I got on my last blog. The only difficulty in not having ... Read more

Tuesday, May 05, 2015      7 comments

Ok, I've got myself into a self-destructive cycle and I need to break out of it. I have put weight on again, which makes me feel bad about myself and so I comfort eat and put more weight on, etc... I need to take control of my eating. I nee... Read more
