Get to know your Sparkfriends (borrowed from another Sparker)

I am "stealing" this from Claire in Paris. She added some of her lovely, lovely photos, but I am camera-impaired, so I'm just posting text. I think I'll look back this time next year, after I've been retired for 14 months instead of 2, and see... Read more

Two little NSVs that are big to me

Saturday, May 31, 2014      7 comments

Today is officially the last day of my working career, but I've been living as if I were already retired almost every minute of the past four weeks and it is GLORIOUS! I've been walking 3 miles in an hour, most mornings; this is revolutionary f... Read more

An anniversary is an opportunity!

Monday, December 30, 2013      6 comments

Today marks 3 years since I first signed up for Sparkpeople. I had NEVER thought I would benefit from any sort of online community. And although there have been peaks and valleys along the way, I know that whatever success I've had in getting ... Read more

Progress pays off!

Sunday, July 21, 2013      5 comments

Although I've been diligent about tracking food and have increased my exercise, my weight has stayed level since mid-March. Of course, that isn't great news. But today I am happy to observe how different things are than they used to be and to ... Read more

A sort of "anniversary"

Friday, June 21, 2013      6 comments

Today isn't a Spark-versary, but it is a sort of an anniversary for me. One year ago today (the longest day of the year!), I went back to tracking nutrition on Sparkpeople and I've lost almost 35 pounds since then. I knew from my previous e... Read more

Loving, not hating, my body

Tuesday, May 21, 2013      6 comments

Keeping my weight under control has been a struggle all my life. BUT I KNOW that many of my friends would exchange their personal health struggles for "only" having to monitor their intake and exercise; their struggles make me embarrassed to ev... Read more

Stepping away (but for a good reason)

Sunday, May 05, 2013      7 comments

I have been trying to be more consistent in following Sparkfriends' blogs and progress lately. Not only does this help me keep my own eye on the prize, but I really enjoy the adventures of people all over the place who are on this same journey,... Read more

May Day...a good day to revitalize

Wednesday, May 01, 2013      1 comments

Just a quick memory from long-ago, but one that will sustain me today as I try to get my Serenity and Perspective back in balance: At least one May when I was yet too young to be in elementary school, my mother and I made construction paper... Read more

Looking at the big picture and reflecting...

Sunday, April 21, 2013      7 comments

One of the things I am grateful for about my current life is that there is a bit of time, now and then, to let my mind sort back through and try to make sense of recent events. When I don't have time for that, I start to label life as "stressfu... Read more

Sunday, March 31: Positive Blog #12

Sunday, March 31, 2013      3 comments

The first Sparkteam that comes up when I start to check in each day has a post " Today I am grateful for ________". Just thinking up a word to type to fill in the blank each morning is a powerful reminder that I have so much to be grateful for.... Read more

Sunday, 2/3/12: Positive Blog #11

Sunday, February 03, 2013      6 comments

This is a significantly victorious day for me: I wouldn't change my Profile Image to "Lost 30 Pounds" until the weight loss ticker would support the claim. I made a rule that the ticker had to register 30 or more pounds for three consecutive da... Read more

Sunday, 1/20/13: Positive Blog #10

Sunday, January 20, 2013      3 comments

A Mini-Goal seems to have been achieved! Two of the past three days, my early morning weight has registered on my electronic scale as being just below 160#. For my height, that means I AM NO LONGER OBESE! The third morning (yesterday), it... Read more

Thursday, 1/10/12: Positive Blog #9

Thursday, January 10, 2013      3 comments

I have to jump in the shower VERY soon or I won't get to work at the time I need to, but I simply must (modestly) shout that I am SO proud of myself for earning six consecutive Consistency Trophies from Sparkpeople! This is a real achievement f... Read more

New Years Morning: More Positivity!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013      2 comments

It is not yet quite 9:00 a.m. on January 1, 2013. So far, I've eaten my steel cut oat breakfast, done 30 minutes of step aerobics, made my bed, and caught up on emails and Facebook. I don't really remember New Years Day of 2012. I know I d... Read more

Today is my 2nd anniversary of finding Sparkpeople.com and I am happy to celebrate it! Sparkpeople has been there for me (and waited for me, when other things drew my attention away) every step of the way with all the motivation and support I c... Read more
