Well, I made it to 140 pounds yesterday. I tell ya, the 140s have been super stubborn. I am so ready to welcome the 130s!... Read more

Through rain, sleet or snow

Thursday, December 13, 2007      3 comments

OK, so we've been having really wacky weather lately. Yesterday it was in the high 50s, almost 60 degrees. But today we are having a bone-chilling icy drizzle. The old me would wrap herself up in a blanket, cuddle up with the cat and a huge mug ... Read more

Bad decisions

Sunday, December 09, 2007      3 comments

Why does it seem like as soon as I make a tiny bit of progress, I ruin it by making bad decisions? For some reason, instead of using my accomplishments as a validation of my healthy lifestyle and a reason to keep going, I sabotage my hard work s... Read more

I'm all different sizes

Monday, December 03, 2007      4 comments

I went shopping yesterday for a dress to wear to an upcoming holiday party. I fit into a few that were size 6! Woo hoo! One even seemed too BIG, but I think that's because of the style of the dress. (What is with those dresses that are "in" righ... Read more

plateaus, fruit and staying under 1500 calories

Wednesday, November 28, 2007      2 comments

Well, I think I am going through yet another plateau. It's been pretty much the story since September, it seems. I think I know what my problem is: I am eating at the top end of my calorie budget most days. I am just finding that it's very diffi... Read more

How can this be?

Wednesday, November 14, 2007      5 comments

I weighed in at the gym today and I've lost another pound after a long plateau! I am now 144 pounds -- woo hoo! So why the heck am I still a size 10? Actually, I just tried on some size 10 pants this morning to see if they fit and they do. But u... Read more

weighing in after travel weekend

Monday, November 05, 2007      2 comments

Well I am still hovering around 146. The scale at the gym has been a little bit unsure of my weight lately. Depending on where I stand, it moves between 145 and 147 so I just picked the middle ground. I am lucky that I didn't GAIN after this pas... Read more

Today was the day

Wednesday, October 31, 2007      1 comments

Happy Halloween!! Today was the day that I was supposed to reach my goal weight. When I first signed up with SparkPeople and set my weight-loss goals, the site said I could reach my GW by this date. So here I am, but only halfway there. ... Read more

Another pound down

Wednesday, October 17, 2007      0 comments

Finally, I am down another pound. I have been stuck in the high 140s for a while, but it's no big surprise. I have been eating ice cream as a snack every night like there's going to be a worldwide ice cream shortage tomorrow or something. It's b... Read more

Then and Now

Sunday, September 23, 2007      3 comments

Recently I started a temporary job. In my last job, I used to commute to work about two hours each way. After I quit my old job, I realized how much time I DIDN'T devote to exercise and eating well when I was working and how EASY it was to pack ... Read more

The scale is moving again!!

Tuesday, August 28, 2007      1 comments

Well, I am happy to report that after being stuck for about 3 weeks, I am down 4 pounds! YAY! Plateaus are so frustrating, but I know that won't be my last one, unfortunately. I think what gets me through this process the most is the interacti... Read more

Still standing still

Monday, August 20, 2007      2 comments

Today I'm feeling kind of "blah." Maybe it's the rainy weather -- though it is a welcome relief. The air felt so cool for my walk to the gym this a.m. Scale still hasn't budged. I know I must not be trying very hard. Lately I am finding it di... Read more

Fighting to keep my resolve

Monday, August 13, 2007      1 comments

Ok, today I am starting to feel like I am losing my resolve. I know this has to happen to everyone who ever tries to lose weight. For me, this feeling is not yet strong enough to be a problem, but it just took a little bit more self-nudging to g... Read more

Scale stubborn this week

Monday, August 06, 2007      0 comments

Well I did my weekly weigh-in today and the scale is being stubborn. Zero pounds lost but no pounds gained either, so that's good. I guess I am just becoming impatient. I want to lose weight FASTER! I have decided that this week I will kic... Read more

Adios Don Pablo's

Monday, July 30, 2007      1 comments

I finally feel like I am getting the hang of this new healthy lifestyle. I'm losing weight and it feels great!! Until I joined SP, I never gave much thought to the enormous amounts of calories I was consuming with my poor habits. Not going out t... Read more
