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


Wednesday, September 05, 2012      1 comments

Well, I've started (again). I wasn't planning to blog this time because it doesn't seem to help but I need somewhere to whine a minute. I have three hurdles that I must overcome today: 1. getting to work. Yesterday was a terrible day... Read more

Day 18

Wednesday, July 25, 2012      1 comments

I have not been a good Sparker these last few weeks. I did track my breakfast yesterday, but nothing else. I have to actually think about what I'm doing. I need to lose the weight this time.... Read more

Day 15 (Week 2)

Sunday, July 22, 2012      0 comments

I don't get it. I didn't exercise this week, I didn't track what I was eating and I didn't drink enough water and I lose 2.5 lbs. I'm not complaining. It's just hard to justify doing all those good habits when they don't seem to get me as far... Read more

Day 13

Friday, July 20, 2012      1 comments

*sigh* I'm seriously considering just calling this week a bust and starting fresh. I won't. I will keep trying. I will put yesterday behind me and look at today with fresh eyes.... Read more

Day 12

Thursday, July 19, 2012      1 comments

Today? Is today the day that I get myself back on track? I'm trying. I really am. I don't want to exercise today, but I really, really, ought to.... Read more
