My Daughter's Special Weekend Included Victories for Me
Ahhh, the wedding reception was perfect.
Aside from feeling a little stressed during meal time and eating two extra brownies after it was dark and I knew no one was looking, the evening was a huge success.
I have a couple of favorite... Read more
My Random Thursday Celebration
As I have mentioned, probably enough times already, but this weekend is travel weekend. Ten hours total riding in the car. Though I savor the time to read, I don't look forward to being sedentary and exposure to gas station treats. I have a weak... Read more
How My Streak is Going
Just an observation I've made from reading an article: 7 of our Spark fitness experts mentioned their frequency of using the scale, and some weigh infrequently and a few don't even weigh themselves at all! This intrigues me. None of them seem t... Read more

My Plan for Focus
I'm hoping to keep my focus once again over the next 24 hours. I'm taking it one moment at a time. My last 24 hours passed with success. I even did an intense 10 minute ST, non-stop, after neglecting ST for a few weeks. I woke up in the middle o... Read more
I Believe I've Found Focus
I am happy to say that for the past 36 hours I have found focus. I wrestled with much effort to get my mind set on renewed efforts at staying within my calorie range, and had a very successful day yesterday. My calorie count was on the low end, ... Read more
Problems With Focus
I've had a few things happen recently that have effected my focus.
Most recently, 95 year old friend passed away last Monday night. It was a relief to see him no longer in pain. He'd been quite well up to two weeks before his death. Never b... Read more
A Suggested Article I Found on Motivation
A great article to read here on SP is on motivation. I have found it to be profound and helpful. I anticipate that what I learned from it will help me immensely.

Renewing an Old Mindset
Something I read today, which was a reminder of something I learned when I first started reading articles on SP, was an article about setting goals. The point that struck me was how we often set goals that are negative, like I will stop eating s... Read more
A New Thought About My Binge Eating
A new thought hit me this morning, after yet another binge last night.
I was keeping the house free of binge foods, which means sugary foods. I realize carbs have sugar in them, but I don't keep the house free of good carbs. I'd had 200 cal... Read more

I contacted my doctor and got the go ahead to decrease my medicine by 2/3, saving quite a bit of money of the medicine. I may even be... Read more
I'd Call Myself Successful
I'm happy to say that for the first time having guests in the house, I did very little emotional eating. I can't say I didn't have any binges, but there were only two in two weeks. This is astounding news. It has boosted my self-esteem to be suc... Read more
Weight Lifting in the Water
I hadn't been in a pool for months. Today I met my son and his girlfriend, my daughter and her two preschoolers, and I had my older grandchildren with me. We swam and played in the pool for the whole 2 hours we were there!
I did some actual... Read more
