Celebration Day! - June 12,2010

Saturday, June 12, 2010      4 comments

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

Monday, June 07, 2010      4 comments

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

=Gasp!= - June 3, 2010

Thursday, June 03, 2010      4 comments

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

One For The Books - April 20, 2010

Tuesday, April 20, 2010      1 comments

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

Post Passover Post Mortem - April 10, 2010

Saturday, April 10, 2010      1 comments

I'm sitting here this morning, reading the words of a man's "trip to half." Love the imagery of that one! Even love the choo choo on his Spark Page titled "It's a Trip To 'State of Mind'". Who says SparkPeople folks are not creative? Since b... Read more

Passover And Cholesterol - Sunday March 28, 2010

Sunday, March 28, 2010      1 comments

With so little time to pause, I'm sitting here drinking my water (good move!) and musing over the entry of a young woman who lost 65 pounds with SparkPeople. Passover is almost upon us, which is an extremely high cholesterol holiday by its very... Read more

Sometimes in the course of a day, we come across something so moving that we bookmark it to remember for later. This sent to me is one of those things: Blessings... Read more

Labor Day Affirmation - September 7, 2009

Monday, September 07, 2009      0 comments

It's been far too long since my last blog entry. I spent some time this morning reading all of Birdie's posts here on SparkPeople. She reminded me that setbacks can be turned around. One interesting point she made was if one plateaus to keep ... Read more

The Scale Is Back! - May 21, 2008

Wednesday, May 21, 2008      0 comments

What a delight to open the door today to find a big box from Missouri, knowing that my scale had ended its journey, and was back home once more. (Well, actually a brand new one, which replaced the one sent. It does make one wonder if the inces... Read more

Dreary Monday But Laden With Good News - April 28, 2008

Monday, April 28, 2008      0 comments

Last night, on a lark, I tried on my "fat" jeans. They fit! It's hard to imagine that I allowed myself to go beyond the fat jeans, but life is what it is, and when you don't pay attention, working 12 plus hours a day, it creeps up on you. Wit... Read more

Moment Of Truth - April 26, 2008

Saturday, April 26, 2008      0 comments

Since I couldn't get an accurate weight today, I'm holding on for dear life to the five pounds already noted at the four-week mark, two days ago. I sent the scale back for repairs today. It cost double what the company estimated to ship back, bu... Read more

To Weigh Or Not To Weigh, That Is The Question - April 24, 2008

Thursday, April 24, 2008      0 comments

This, for me, is an interesting question: I fear that my bathroom scale is off, and I'm not quite sure where I stand now. Since starting this quest a month ago, I have added a lot of new and good habits. I know that I am heading in the right ... Read more

My Progress Report - April 13, 2008

Sunday, April 13, 2008      0 comments

I love the accountability the website forces you to make. I can actually see where my errors have been in the food distribution department. After two and a half weeks of this I must say I am getting better at this. Water is surely one of the... Read more
