Week 13 - Disappointing Shopping Trip

Sunday, August 02, 2015      0 comments

Why do sports bras have under wire? It seems like it would be incredibly uncomfortable. I don't need my bosom shaped while I exercise I want it contained so it doesn't hurt. I went to the plus size active store yesterday because I needed ... Read more

Week 12 - Getting Back to Routine

Sunday, July 26, 2015      1 comments

Getting back from vacation is almost as hard as being on vacation. I didn't meet my exercise goals this week. Just couldn't get back in the habit. I use the excuse that my work schedule was different (I lost a half hour in the morning where I... Read more

Week 11 - Best Laid Plans...

Sunday, July 19, 2015      1 comments

Back from vacation. I had planned to exercise in the gym at the hotel. I even brought some workout clothes. Even brought my swim suit to use the pool. Did not do either. I thought that I'd get enough steps just being a tourist. That worked... Read more

Week 10 - On Vacation

Sunday, July 12, 2015      1 comments

I don't have a weigh in this week because I'm no where near my scale. That's a little hard. I've been tracking but I'd like to have confirmation that I'm doing OK. I had planned to walk the treadmill in the hotel gym but that's not happening.... Read more

Week 9 - Going on Vacation!

Sunday, July 05, 2015      0 comments

I'm so excited! I get to spend 10 days with my brother in Toronto. I haven't seen him in 2 years. Our last family vacation was in March but was half vacation and half hockey tournament so it's just nice to be able to get away with no real pla... Read more

Week 8 - Not Where I Hoped I'd Be

Sunday, June 28, 2015      3 comments

So I'm at the 2 month mark and I've lost 11 pounds. That's about a pound a week. I've set up the program to lose two pounds a week. This month was super slow and I'm not sure why. I'm beginning to fear that I'm not eating enough. I thin... Read more

Week 7 - Getting a New Scale

Sunday, June 21, 2015      2 comments

Getting a new scale is tough. I know every scale is expected to have a certain accuracy but a scale I've had for 10 years and never changed the batteries always makes me wonder how accurate it was. This new one reads to the 0.1 (not the 0.5) a... Read more

Week 6 - Weight Loss is Hard

Sunday, June 14, 2015      0 comments

I know I've stayed in my calorie range this week (near the top but the exercise calories say I'm fine) but I didn't lose. There's no reason I can think that I didn't lose. I exercised. I didn't overindulge. I was "good". I did add another w... Read more

Week 5 - Time for Some New Goals

Sunday, June 07, 2015      0 comments

As of today I finished my 2 week goal: walking the dog twice a day, every day except Tuesday, and strength training 3 times a week. It took 3 weeks to get two full weeks because of an illness set back but I did it. Now I want to add something.... Read more

Week 4 - Ignoring the Scale

Sunday, May 31, 2015      1 comments

I didn't lose anything this week. I didn't change anything that I was doing but I didn't lose. I know there's going to be weeks where that happens - for whatever reason. It's hard not to be disappointed. It's hard not to be discouraged. But... Read more

Week 3 - A Loss is a Loss

Sunday, May 24, 2015      1 comments

Sheesh... try to lose one pound a week and lose three; try to lose two and lose one. Intellectually I know there are going to be weeks where I don't meet weight loss goals. There's plenty of reasons why the scale doesn't always match perce... Read more

Week 2 - Moving the Goal Posts

Sunday, May 17, 2015      2 comments

So, I'm two weeks into my newest Spark and I'm pretty pleased with how things are going. It's not the weight I've lost (though 6lbs in 2 weeks is awesome), it's that I'm setting goals and meeting them. I've always low-balled my goals on Sp... Read more

Week 1 - Again

Sunday, May 10, 2015      0 comments

I've done this Spark thing for a while. Not well, but I've been here. This week was different. I tracked like I did the first time. This week I made the choice to eat healthy. This week I made the choice to go out and walk the dog. There w... Read more

Why Wait?

Sunday, December 21, 2014      1 comments

I was going to start trying to lose weight again in the new year. Why wait? I've been doing that to myself a lot lately. I'll start tomorrow. I'll wait until after I go away. Next week would be better. Why wait? I'm not waiting an... Read more

Why Can't I Do This

Sunday, October 20, 2013      1 comments

I'm tired of constant failure. I've gained so much weight lately after having been stalled for so long. I need to make changes. I just turned 40. That\ll make everything harder. It's time to get hard on myself. I can't keep going the way I... Read more
