Second Gym Day with Little Sis
Monday, June 06, 2011      2 comments

I gave my sister (and myself, since I hadn't had the necessary transportation to get to the gym in so long) a few days to recover before we headed back. Today I got a lot less resistance and far fewer excuses. She says that she is actually enjoy... Read more
Sparkin' with My Sister
Saturday, June 04, 2011      3 comments

Last year I lost 30 pounds, and it seemed that all the weight I lost went straight to my sister's body. This summer, before she starts her second half of high school, I am doing a sort of boot camp with her using principles that I learned throug... Read more
From "Chunky" to "Tiny"

Last night we went to my husband's family's house. It's been chilly at night, so I took a light jacket that I haven't worn all year. I used to have a few inches on either side overlap. Now each side reaches entirely across my front! I didn't rea... Read more
Getting back on the wagon

It's amazing what one bad diet day followed by two weeks (and counting) of allergy interference can do to progress. I went to my husband's work party and I got a little bit of everything from the dessert table. BIG MISTAKE. I keep telling ... Read more
Feeling Great

I don't have a high paying job. I don't have a car to get to that job so I walk close to two miles to work. I live in a one-bedroom apartment that is older than I am. The community college I'm trying to get started at has given me enough of a ru... Read more

I know I need to get into college. I'm trying. I am really, really trying. But when I can't get the school to process my financial aid paperwork until it's too late to register for the full semester and I'm limited to just the half-semester clas... Read more
Inch by inch

My first week on SparkPeople showed a faster weight loss than I expected, but the past couple of weeks haven't shown any results on the scale. Instead, I have seen some great improvements mass-wise. Since the first time I logged my inches ... Read more
The Fat Gene
Thursday, August 19, 2010      1 comments

From the way that people go on, you'd think that if somebody's family was overweight, that person was doomed to obesity. Not so. Yes, it takes a lot to combat the "fat gene," but that is nothing different from what sparkpeople.com teaches: chang... Read more

When in Texas, get a car. Well, that's if you don't want to overheat, dehydrate, and die in the street. Yesterday, I got off of work at one, walked two miles to my apartment, walked three miles to the store, bought a pair of weights and a ... Read more

I just joined SparkPeople a couple of days ago. I'm 5'9" and 152 pounds. People have said that the "right weight" for a person is one where they feel comfortable. I don't feel comfortable. I know I'm not obese or even, according to my BMI, overw... Read more
