Monday, June 10, 2013      3 comments

I have been a member of SparkPeople since 2007. (This is my second account, which I created in an attempt to have a "clean slate.") Since that time, I have "started over" with SparkPeople more times than I can count. (Literally. I've lost cou... Read more

I subscribe to a healthy number of blogs that I read on a regular basis, and one of them led me to this post, titled "Real Beauty vs. the World's Beauty":

Weekends are going to be a big hurdle for me to overcome. It feels like everything is harder - eating right, working out - on the weekend, when I lack the structure of my work day, around which I plan my meals. It's also harder because I don't... Read more

... but in a good way. (I'll get to that in a minute.) After my post on 07/31/12, @Karen42Boys asked me what small changes I was starting with, and I thought that might be a good topic for a blog post. My starting-out small changes i... Read more

So, I think I had my "Come to Jesus" moment today. To be more specific, I think I had it this morning. I came across the mention of the "global fat scale" (

So, I did really good. For a week.

After my last blog post, I did really good. For a WHOLE WEEK. I lost 3#, which was awesome. But then I realized that I had two weeks to finish my thesis, and work was spinning wildly out of control ... so after that one glorious week, I didn'... Read more

So, I've spent the last 9? months, since my last blog entry in July 2011, not doing any of the stuff that I said that I was going to do in that last blog entry. (Or what I implied that I would do, since I didn't explicitly spell it out.) I... Read more

My last blog post here was three months ago. And in that time span, I have done absolutely nothing good for me like I said I was going to. I didn't keep up with working out, and I stopped paying attention to what I was eating. I went to Italy... Read more

I AM DONE: - Procrastinating! - Denying myself the health and happiness that I deserve! - Listening to my mother's negative voice inside my head! - Repeating the same mistakes of the past! - Living in the past! - Saying that I'll ... Read more

So, I'm starting over ... again. I don't really know what else to say. I've "started over" more times than I care to count, when it comes to weight loss. I created a whole new Spark account, because I was tired of all the Spark Points on my o... Read more
