Parallel Events - July 31, 2010
Saturday, July 31, 2010      4 comments

In the past several months, I have been on a quest looking for a new job. It is interesting to me to see how that event so closely mimicked my battle to lose weight. Both are a struggle. Both bring into question "worthiness." And both requir... Read more

Sunday, July 11, 2010      7 comments

I have been giving quite a bit of thought to this lately, as I lose more and more weight than ever before. I know this has been discussed elsewhere, but I was hoping to put together a more extensive search of my own. I remember years ago, at a... Read more

A friend asked tonight if I were going to the Y in the morning. (She had finally seen the light, and decided to join with her boys.) The response was, "Yes, it's Sunday and that's swimming day." As if, "you didn't know?" It's interesting... Read more

Today is the inauguration of my monthly weight goals. I'm aiming for a one pound a week, approximately four pounds a month, benchmark. I'm glad to report that I'm back on track. And oh, baby, it feels so good! With my landmarks set, and ... Read more
People Who Believe In Us - June 24, 2010
Thursday, June 24, 2010      1 comments

This morning I had an important interview which kept me up late last night worrying. We are our own worst enemies on so many fronts, sad to say. I woke up early, and decided to go back to bed for another 45 minutes or so, in order to be at my ... Read more
The Spillover Effect - June 21, 2010
Monday, June 21, 2010      2 comments

Coming off my recent "high" of hitting a new weight loss milestone (an all time record loss), it got me to pondering how what I am learning about weight loss can be applied to other endeavors. So much of why we became morbidly obese has little ... Read more

I've reached fifteen pounds down on SparkPeople, which added to the fifteen pounds BSP (Before Spark People), I'm now down 30 pounds total. Whoa! As I get deeper into this journey, and the pounds slip and slide off, I've discovered a few thing... Read more

Today I officially cracked that nasty plateau that has been haunting me since forever. Now, I am officially (there's that validation word again) on a roll. Between the gold stars that I have been getting regularly (not perfect, mind you, but r... Read more
Fat Jeans - June 10, 2010
Thursday, June 10, 2010      7 comments

These days, I've noticed, that quite a few have remarked how they are once again back into their skinny jeans. Today, I was able to get into my fat jeans completely, including the infamous "zip up". Why is this a celebration? Because, s... Read more

As I read someone's blog this morning of her one year anniversary, it got me to thinking what on Spark People has reignited my weight loss journey. I took a very serious look at the My Spark Summary Calendar on the Start page about a week and a... Read more

Well this is a nice, fine how do you do. I got behind on my exercising, so without overdoing it (and I DO feel comfortable), I've been going swimming in the morning, then treadmilling around midday, and finally capping the day with about five m... Read more
The Ridiculous Loser - May 25, 2010
Tuesday, May 25, 2010      6 comments

Tonight I watched the season ending to America's addiction with "The Biggest Loser". If ever there was a show on television to set a horrible message for weight loss, this one is it. It's a guilty pleasure, though, to watch a 526 (FIVE HUNDRED... Read more

I caught a cold Sunday night, and still feel a bit run down, but not sick enough to stay home from work. It would be too difficult with a major project ongoing now at the hospital, so the rule of thumb for me is, "No temperature, then off to wo... Read more
