Wednesday, January 25, 2012      2 comments

I had ordered a new pair of walking shoes and when I got a notice for a missed package delivery a day before they were supposed to arrive, I was definitely surprised to have been one of the ones chosen to receive Coach Nicole's new DVD ( my shoe... Read more

Gosh, I thought it would be easy to eat a lot of food for a couple of days...I only ate 1/2 my omlet this morning and was stuffed. Even if I didn't lose weight on this program, I think my awareness of food is well worth the investment. Here's ... Read more

Each one of us has joined Spark to have support during a time of crisis. It just happens that the initial crisis is weight loss. Any other benefits/support that we derive from our association with fellow Sparkers is just bonus. We need to rem... Read more

Thank You Note

I would just like to take a moment to thank those Sparkers that have made my life better. You all know who you are, so I am not going to name names. For those who may have just joined or maybe you have been on Spark for a while, but have... Read more

Time change and dark clouds

Tuesday, November 08, 2011      2 comments

I don't know if the time change is what prompted my dark mood for the weekend, but I spent a lot of this past weekend sleeping. I thought when Monday rolled around that I had gotten it licked. The morning was bright and sunny. Then, I decided... Read more

Food is NOT a reward

Monday, October 31, 2011      3 comments

I think I am finally getting the whole picture. Good fuel (food) + good exercise +energizing friends = success at losing weight. I never took enough time for myself and when I did, it was to reward myself with food. Food is not a reward, ... Read more

Enthusiasm

Monday, August 02, 2010      4 comments

I was doing some computer "cleaning" and ran across this bit of rambling in a document. I don't remember the catalyst that prompted this, but felt a need to re-visit the feelings involved. I have recently re-connected with a person who played ... Read more

Please tell me you love me

OK, we run to Walmart to get a couple of things and decide to stop to Arby's for dinner. I order curly fries (I know, not good) and a MarketFresh sandwich. I eat all the fries (my bad) and only half my sandwich. My hubby says...wasn't it good... Read more

Goals, small and large

Friday, May 14, 2010      1 comments

Is telling myself I will only eat 1/2 cup of ice cream when I do eat ice cream a small goal or a large goal? If you know me and my history with ice cream, you would know that it is definitely a large goal. I remember my dad giving my mother mo... Read more

It's not a competition, dear.

So, have any of you had this problem with your significant other...? when I started on this latest journey with Spark on March 15th, I weighed about 20 pounds more than my hubby. Now, with a weight loss of 21-22 pounds, I am within 5 pounds o... Read more

put it in writing

Thursday, May 06, 2010      2 comments

Over the course of my life I have always been big. But never this big. I know that for a while I just haven't cared. I hid behind the "large" person I had become. I said to myself that people could just take or leave me for who I am on the... Read more

Stop and smell the roses

Losing weight is like going to school(even the school of hard knocks counts on this one)...yeah, it is. You learn something (or at least you should, if you are paying attention!) every day. There is book learning and there is socialization an... Read more

Never let the food win...

Friday, April 09, 2010      5 comments

Please forgive me if I ramble...this is a true blog of anquish and a need to put down in writing a very personal tragedy and triumph. April 8, 2010: A day like any other. Get up. Is it an Up Day or an Alternate (Down) Day. Alternate ... Read more

Eating and stress

Thursday, March 25, 2010      1 comments

I consider myself a fairly intelligent human being, but the other day with the hungry beast, I learned something. Mostly about myself. I handle stress very badly. Head right for the feed bag. I guess that on some level I knew that, but with ... Read more

The beast has been caged, for now.

Well, it is like yesterday never happened. Today I wake up without the urge to eat cardboard! Maybe my mind has been tipped upside down and my alternate days should be Up days? Who knows. I am just taking it easy today to make up for the "me... Read more
