Not weighing

Friday, August 01, 2014      7 comments

Some may have noticed that my weight tracker has not moved. That is on purpose. I get too obsessed with that scale, even though we know there are supposed to be ups and downs in this weight loss game. The drops on weight sure motivated, but... Read more

The problem with cereal.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014      5 comments

I cannot eat just one bowl. I talk myself into two. And it is so easy to pour and eat before rationality kicks back in. So now I just ate breakfast and lunch. Or lunch and snack. Haven't gone over my calorie count yet, but it doesn't leave... Read more

Strong Thursday.

Back in the game! Here's wishing a strong thursday to all of you, too! I know we are of many faiths and we take many paths to God, so I am grateful for your patience and honor those who take a different path than mine, but, I have to s... Read more

Intercession for hopeless causes

Wednesday, July 16, 2014      5 comments

I've slipped back into old patterns this third week back, undoing the work of the first two weeks. Then, I had the depressing thought that I've been struggling with this for 30 years, sometimes succeeding wonderously, & in the last few year... Read more

"Too skinny"

Tuesday, July 15, 2014      15 comments

That phrase, "too skinny" and the thought that other people will someday actually say that to me is my motivation for today, this week, this year, forever. Yes, motivation should come from within, and it does, but, as this entire website pr... Read more

Sodium ...

Friday, July 11, 2014      5 comments

The Spark Nutrition tracker is telling me I eat way too much salt, even when the calories are in check. I was relying too heavily on Zero Calorie Walden Farm dressings, and I figured that was where the sodium spike came from, but today I t... Read more

I'll do it.

What me? Panic over creeping calories?

Monday, July 07, 2014      7 comments

Well, well well. I had a wonderful Spark streak last week. But the the fourth of July hit. Lost a bit of control on two of the last three days. Okay so a little back tracking, and now all that hard work has been a bit undone, and I slowed ... Read more

Not letting the calories creep back up.

Sunday, June 29, 2014      7 comments

Starting today, I am going to watch those calories and really get them back in line! I have led a dangerous trend the last three days and gone over my calorie limit, at first just so slightly, then on Friday just a little bit more, then yes... Read more

Read Julia's featured blog about starting over. It is so inspiring, and so nice to see how she and all the spark people responding to her featured blog travel this same start and fail, start and fail, start again with determination road to perfe... Read more

Full steam ahead.

Day three of back-at-it skinny eating. After years of going up and down the scale, and finally learning the hard way about how to eat right, the one thing I know for sure is that I have to make that " day 3" goal. If I can get past th... Read more

Sparkpeople is not to blame.

Friday, January 11, 2013      15 comments

I love Sparkpeople, I really do. But once I sign on, I don't get anything done!!! I gotta post this, and track that, then check into some inspiring Sparkettes and Sparkmen .... BUT GUYS, my house looks like it was hit by a tornado. Okay, ... Read more

"You're getting too skinny!"

Friday, July 20, 2012      14 comments

No one has ever said that to me ... "You're getting too skinny!" Not that I can remember. The closest comment somewhat like that was, "Oh you'll never be heavy." But that was at several years ago. I knew I was puffing up, but kept pushing i... Read more

Years ago as a teen, I remember one Weight Watchers meeting in particular. This was long before points, when the tracking and goals were very much like what we do here on SparkPeople. Balance food and count calories, and (I committed to he... Read more

Dark Chocolate ...

Friday, July 13, 2012      15 comments

About a year ago I read another Sparkette's blog about dark chocolate. Hmmm... I could have dark chocolate?!!! So I've been stewing about it for a year. Yesterday I stood in the chocolate aisle for about 30 minutes reading labels and cocoa... Read more
