Week 16 - Onderland!

Sunday, August 23, 2015      3 comments

I did it! 199.2lbs. So happy to be out of the 200s. That's the point where I always feel terrible about my weight and my body. I still need to work at it though. I didn't meet all of my goals this week and I still have over 80lbs ... Read more

Week 15 - Need to Maker Better Choices

Sunday, August 16, 2015      0 comments

So last week I was frustrated because I've been in a plateau. That led me to make some poor food choices and didn't motivate myself to exercise as much as I should have. The result is exactly what I expected. I need to make better choices thi... Read more

Week 14 - Stuck

Sunday, August 09, 2015      6 comments

I'm stuck. I know plateaus happen. I'm looking for non-scale victories. I feel fitter. I'm walking better. I don't hurt as much at the end of the day but my goal line is rapidly disappearing. If I were meeting my goals I would be 190lb... Read more

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
