Thursday, February 04, 2016      7 comments

I have done so well on Sparkpeople in the past. As long as I use the trackers and check in every day, I lose weight. It's when I let this go that I start to gain again. I had an injury that affected my ability to exercise, but now I am slowly bu... Read more
Still here and still working on goals
Wednesday, January 28, 2015      0 comments

With some setbacks, my weight has been up and down. I always eat fairly healthy foods, but I've had a tendency to skip meals and then just eat whatever is around so I can keep going. For some time now, I have been faithful about using the food t... Read more
Resetting goals
Sunday, December 29, 2013      2 comments

I reset my goals and the ticker tape. I lost weight last year, but hit a plateau for so long. I decided to reset everything like I'm starting over. I started the day after Christmas, like I did last year. I've come so far since one year ago, but... Read more

I lost 32 lbs and went from size ten to size 6. I need to lose another 18 lbs, but I seem to be stuck, although I've been practicing maintenance. I'm very small boned, so I don't look overweight, but I really do need to lose 18 lbs. I seem to be... Read more

I am still a work in progress. I vowed from the start that I would stay with Sparkpeople for at least two years to focus on better health. When I started, I lost weight steadily and then I hit the plateau. Even if this is all the weight I lost, ... Read more
Still on a Plateau

I've been on a plateau for weeks now. My body is stubbornly hanging on to this weight. At least I'm doing other things, like visitng my family on a farm, to work and share stories. I got some fresh produce from a farm coop, so I'm getting a vari... Read more

I'm stuck at a plateau now, so I'm going over everything I'm doing. I went over portion control, exercise, fast break goals, and my own goals. I definitely feel better, look better, and have more energy, so something is working. The scale is bo... Read more

My Love of Bicycles
Wednesday, March 27, 2013      6 comments

My first bicycle was a used yellow green heavyweight. My parents bought me a bike that I could grow into, but I couldn't sit on the seat and reach the pedals, so for years I biked standing up. When I got the bike in second grade, I didn't know h... Read more
A Valentino Evening Gown
Tuesday, March 19, 2013      1 comments

I have a silly motivator for getting into shape. Someday, I'm going to wear a Valentino evening gown. I have no idea where I would find one, but I guess I will try calling in favors when I get there. It wouldn't have to be a Valentino, but I lik... Read more

Today I got on the scale, and I'm 17 lbs less than I was when starting back on Sparkpeople on December 30, 2012. The Nutrition Tracker and I have been best friends during this time. I love the success stories and all of the tools on SP. Seeing t... Read more

I looked at the graph after weighing in today, which shows steady progress. I've lost 13 lbs since starting December 30. I love the graph, as it is such a visual motivator. My weight will stay the same for days, and then suddenly drop. The slowe... Read more
