Tuesday, August 13, 2013      14 comments

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

Friday, August 09, 2013      10 comments

How My Streak is Going

Wednesday, August 07, 2013      9 comments

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

Tuesday, August 06, 2013      12 comments

I've had four successful days, of eating really well and getting a nice amount of exercise. I have lost 1.5 pounds over the last week, and maybe I need to give myself more credit than this, but I keep thinking it's only water weight and normal f... Read more

My Plan for Focus

Sunday, August 04, 2013      7 comments

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

Saturday, August 03, 2013      9 comments

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

Thursday, August 01, 2013      11 comments

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 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. "Mastering the Mysteries of Motivation Pt 2" by Dean Anderson, Behavioral Psyc... Read more

Renewing an Old Mindset

Thursday, July 25, 2013      10 comments

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

Monday, July 22, 2013      12 comments

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'd Call Myself Successful

Sunday, July 14, 2013      10 comments

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

Wednesday, July 10, 2013      10 comments

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
