Breaking through roadblocks

Friday, April 17, 2015      1 comments

I woke up today feeling somewhat discouraged; this past week has not been one of my best. Although I haven't had any days I've gone wildly overboard, I have consumed more than I'm aiming for and I didn't exercise two days. What's interesting i... Read more

Dressing for success

Saturday, April 04, 2015      2 comments

Last fall I discovered a brand of jeans that fit me extremely well, and I was thrilled that I was able to buy them in a size 8. Then I fell off the wagon and gained 30 pounds. The jeans I loved no longer fit, and I hated the ones that did. The... Read more

Hitting the reset button

Thursday, April 02, 2015      3 comments

It's ironic to read my last blog post, as I see that Thanksgiving trip as the beginning of a downward spiral that I am just now recovering from. I'm not going to dwell on all that happened, and why I gave up on all the healthy habits I had been... Read more

Taking my low-carb show on the road

Thursday, November 20, 2014      3 comments

Next week my family and I will be joining the 46.3 million Americans who will be traveling this Thanksgiving. Traveling poses many challenges for those of us attempting to stay on a healthy eating regime. I'll be taking a few low-carb items wi... Read more

Today I get to enjoy one of my favorite meals of the week, Sunday Brunch: Pictured are low-carb, protein-powder based pancakes, topped with extra virgin coconut oil a... Read more

Motivation for Maintenance Needed

Saturday, October 25, 2014      4 comments

I've been back Sparking for about 6 weeks and I've been doing great, sticking to my eating and exercise goals and surviving a wedding weekend. In fact I am doing so well I'm not even worried about Halloween this week and having a boatload of ca... Read more

Out of sight, out of mind

Friday, October 17, 2014      6 comments

I love my partner Ken; he's funny, kind and loving, and we have gone through a lot together in our 10 years together. He's supportive of my weight maintenance activities and strongly supportive of regular exercise, which is not surprising given... Read more

Breaking the link: stress & overeating

Friday, October 10, 2014      4 comments

Like many Sparkpeople members, I struggle with emotional eating. My issues started when I was 10 years old, when I discovered that just 1 or two fun-sized candy bars were not enough. Soon food became my comfort, during the tough grade school y... Read more

Where would I be without Sparkpeople?

Tuesday, September 23, 2014      5 comments

Recently I put myself back into reducing mode as I had regained a chunk of the weight I lost last year. It's definitely frustrating to be working on re-losing weight and seeing numbers on the scale I had hoped were behind me "forever". But the... Read more

Back on the wagon... again. :-(

Saturday, September 20, 2014      3 comments

This summer was basically a disaster for me, weight and health-wise. I was traveling a lot due to numerous family commitments, so not only was I eating out a lot but also sitting next to my fiance who snacks on trail mix while driving. It's al... Read more

Year In Review - With pictures!

Thursday, April 03, 2014      5 comments

May 2013: I have been trying in vain to lose twenty pounds to reach 160 pounds. I'm feeling "obligated" to work out and wondering if I'm stuck for good at my current weight: ... Read more

No more weight-ing

Tuesday, April 01, 2014      1 comments

So last week the hard plaster cast came off and I was able to "officially" weigh myself. Much to my surprise I have definitely lost more weight - yes, even with a hard plaster cast and not being able to exercise. I'm now within 2 pounds of my ... Read more

Weight-ing

Tuesday, March 18, 2014      3 comments

A little over one month ago, I broke my foot and ankle. At the time this happened, I was started to feel restless with the eating plan I had been following for 4.5 months. It was working very well and I had lost 43 pounds, but was pretty low-ca... Read more

Fighting the boredom dragon

Thursday, February 27, 2014      1 comments

I am now on week 2 of working from home and pretty much not going anywhere except for doctor's appointments. This lack of mobility, combined the extended winter of snow and frigid temperatures in addition to missing a few days vacation that I h... Read more

Proof that the scale is stupid

Wednesday, February 26, 2014      2 comments

This morning I decided to try and get a reading on where my weight is these days. This is tricky given that I can't stand on it with weight on both legs, but figured I could stand on one foot and balance myself with my walker. Given my new mor... Read more
