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
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
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
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
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?
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
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
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.

Another pound down
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
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!!
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
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
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
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
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
