Birthday - easy to be bad, hard to be good

Tuesday, April 05, 2011      2 comments

My 35th birthday was last week, which is amazing to me, since I feel like I'm 22 still (and I am probably thinner now than when I actually was). I decided that I would take the day off from dieting for my birthday. Well, my fiance organized ... Read more

I hadn't looked at my sparkpage in awhile - the emails for it go to a different account than the one I really use and I've been so busy - work, wedding planning, house hunting etc. So today I did and saw that I'd been motivator of the day and h... Read more

Food, vacation, and diamonds

Thursday, January 06, 2011      11 comments

I am now back from the argentinean vacation that I was nervous about. On vacation, I was intending to be EXTREMELY active, trekking an average of 10 miles a day. For the first four days this was true, but then my boyfriend tore a muscle hiking... Read more

Dieting burnout

Thursday, December 09, 2010      4 comments

In the beginning, it is so easy to diet, at least for me. I can eat 900 calories a day and feel just fine and dandy and think it is so hard to even get to the required 1200 calories. I think, why did I ever need chocolate chips on my froze... Read more

The Plan

Monday, December 06, 2010      1 comments

Today is December 6th and I go on vacation for two weeks on December 18th. My thought was that I'd diet until vacation, then be done. I was hoping to be at 120 pounds by vacation, which is really my thinnest weight ever. Today I'm at 123 w... Read more

Making an honest woman of me

Wednesday, November 17, 2010      3 comments

Horray, today I weighed in at exacty 125, which is a milestone for a few reasons. 1. It was my originial goal when I had my big weight loss three years ago 2. It was my goal to be 125 prior to thanksgiving, so I'm a week early 3. Mos... Read more

Here is a list of things that seem to make me bloated, and make me weigh a few more pounds in the morning than usual. This list is for my own back reference so that I don't freak out when this happens... 1) Flying the day before - ... Read more

I used to be such a good sparker

Thursday, October 28, 2010      3 comments

I was such a good sparker from about June of 2007 - March of 2008. I tracked my food and fitness every day and it all worked. I went from a size 12+ to a size 2 and lost something like 60 pounds. I felt amazing about myself and said I'd never... Read more

Wow, it is really nice and motivating to get all of these nice comments today! Thanks so much. I am about two weeks into my new program and I actually am shocked by how easy it has been to stay around 1200 calories a day. I think that by the... Read more

Five Days

Saturday, December 27, 2008      0 comments

Wow! five days back at spark and I'm down three pounds and back under 130. I still want to lose at least another four pounds, and truly another ten pounds but why didn't I do this earlier? I feel great - I feel in control again. Eating well ... Read more

Back again

Monday, December 22, 2008      4 comments

I have gained a lot of weight since I stopped sparking. I felt my best around 122 pounds and now I'm about 10 pounds higher than that. I've been waking up feeling fat and ugly and it feels like the old days - it feels awful. I've yo-yo'ed he... Read more

First official day back

Tuesday, June 17, 2008      0 comments

Long day - weighed in super early at 4:30 at 130 pounds - know full well that may be a little high (drinking Saturday night, soy sauce last night, super early weigh in, long flight yesterday all usually mean I'm up a few pounds). Yikes though. ... Read more

I need to come back

Thursday, June 12, 2008      2 comments

I've gained weight since I stopped tracking. I'm travelling today so I'm not sure how much but I would say maybe 5 - 7 pounds. Why is it so hard to come back??? I think I'm going to try to though...I am in LA this weekend and then I think st... Read more

I'm done

Sunday, April 20, 2008      3 comments

I've made a decision, I'm going to stop tracking my food. I've been doing it for 10 months and lately it has just been a burden. I need to trust myself that I know how to make smart choices and not count calories anymore. It is going to be to... Read more
