What is the Deal????
I can't believe how my weight fluxuates by week! I used to think it was just hormones, but I really can't figure that comparing my calander. One thing I've noticed is that when my hips & back are particularly achy, my weight seems to be higher... Read more
Hiding in my coffee cup!
Well, my eyes were just opened! YIKES!! My biggest (let's emphasize that word "BIG") allowed indulgence has been fooling me: My Starbucks NON-FAT iced caramel mocha!
When I first started keeping track of my eating, I picked up a pamphlet... Read more
New Year, New Me
Wow... 2008? Tomorrow is my birthday. FOURTY-FIVE! Sheese!!!

skipped a week?
My - I didn't realize I wasn't keeping up on my blogging. But missing a week didn't kill me (I think I was feeling guilty for not keeping track of my food that week).
I lost one pound last week. Not thrilling, but at least we're headed ... Read more
What a feeling!
Well today was the day -- a COMPLIMENT!!!
I went to a school function for my kids (in shorts and a tank top), and actually had another mom give me a wow comment telling me how great I look, and how she really noticed I'd been doing somethi... Read more
Week 3 update
Well, it was a crummy week - and unfortunately, that doesn't mean COOKIE CRUMBS! I was in a bad mood for most of the week with home, kid, finances, etc issues and just put me in a sour mood.
I didn't keep track of my food for THREE DAYS,... Read more
What a difference a day makes!
Well, I made it through week 2. This week was a bit different - I drank sugary mochas pretty much daily, kept desserts, and yesterday, totally gave myself the day off - indulging in pizza, wings, even a big frozen yogurt while out shopping.

2nd week wondering
Well, I'm a couple days into week two, and thinking I MUST be blowing it, because I'm having my daily coffee drink again, and I'm still eating dessert. BUT, on the other hand, I'm staying below on my fat, and within my calorie goals for the da... Read more
First Weigh In
YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I lost 5.5 pounds my first week! I really needed to see that scale move. That will help keep me motivated for another week. Yesterday was hard for me being a family day out. It was too easy to snitch a little here or the... Read more
Well, I'm on day 6 of really focusing on using Sparks. One more and then I can weigh in Sunday morning! I'm just hoping to find a small nudge of the scale at that point so I don't loose motivation.
I changed my page to link my food & exer... Read more
Day Four & Counting!
Ok! Day 4. I'm starting to feel a little tired today, a bit sore, and thinking my poochy belly is looking poochy today -- but, DOIN' GOOD!!
Having my daily meals printed out and POSTED to the front of my refridgerator is really helping me... Read more
Another A+ for the day!
I am working really hard and am feeling great about my start. Once again, I stuck to my plan. I even went out with a friend to Starbucks, got a small fat free drink (that I made last 2 hours!), and stayed in all my ranges.
I've been walki... Read more
