Off The Rails
Okay guys, I"ve got some bad news. I totally went off the rails. I mean, I COMPLETELY lost my mind for a few weeks, setting myself back with every single one of my goals. I generally have been reserving this blog for telling all you guys abo... Read more
YAAAY, I'M OVERWEIGHT!!!!
This blog has been almost a year in the making. Almost a year ago, I started this newest leg of my journey. I was 'morbidly obese' at the time, weighing 211 lbs and only 5 ft tall. I celebrated going from 'morbidly obese' to 'obese' in Octobe... Read more
I'm a big girl who has been shrinking for the past 7 months or so. I FINALLY, just last week, lost my first size! In what kind of bizarro world do you have to lose 38 pounds to lose ONE SIZE? By my calculations, if that trend is true and cont... Read more
Who's With Me On This Whole Thing?
You know, the celebration? For me? (blushes) It's not actually a milestone that I set, but I figured, why NOT celebrate the fact that as of today I have lost 1/3 of my excess weight! I started tinkering several years ago with this diet and th... Read more
I'm a Quarter Low
When I started on this journey (again!) I had literally half of my body weight to lose. That's 105 pounds to lose (I'm only 5 ft tall.) That sounds really daunting, doesn't it? And trying to actually DO it... even harder. But as of this mor... Read more
Okay, in the interest of full disclosure... when I first joined Spark around the middle of 2011 I Weighed 196. My weight kept creeping up though to end up at 211 pounds, in part because of medication I had to take at the time. But this past s... Read more
I Need Some Goal Help!
3 weeks ago in my last blog, I proudly notified everyone in the Spark Kingdom that I earned my ticket to onederland and that I was no longer MORBIDLY obese, JUST obese. I therefore had met my very first goal! YAY! I had set four goals as foll... Read more
YAAAAAY, I'M OBESE!!!!
Sounds weird, huh? I know it does, but I met my first goal of 199! I just moved from MORBIDLY OBESE to just plain ole' OBESE. I've got the calculations down, what weight I'd go to just obese, just overweight, and finally in the normal weight ... Read more
I'm In Hell
Overly dramatic? I've been working out faithfully every day. Constantly sore. And not stress eating. And getting in protein in a meal or snack two or three times a day. How much have I lost? Zilch! Not a thing! And no inches down this wee... Read more
Weight has been up.
I've been working out with Tracy Anderson for about 3 months now. The first month I lost 10 pounds. Month 2 and 3 I didn't lose and thing and actually gained 3 pounds. I didn't move my ticker up, and I also wasn't very upfront with you guys a... Read more
I was a good girl today and yesterday. I got my workouts in. I use Tracy Anderson's products, and she's tough. However, it wouldn't be fair if I didn't tell you that I've been doing some of her EASIER products. I could barely carry groceries... Read more
Just Something I was noticing
I just wanted to let all of you know how much I appreciate you. I put a question or concern or something that gives me pause up on a blog and I know you kind people will do your best to help me out. So to the spark community, thanks!... Read more
Any Ideas on This One, Anyone?
So, I haven't been sleeping very well and haven't gotten my workout in. In 10 days. I know, I suck. So I tried to force myself to get my workout in today and it felt like I had lead in my limbs. I didn't make it very far. Has anyone else fe... Read more
Go Simple or Go Home
This usually doesn't explain all the intricacies that is Pam. However, I have to share the most delicious tomato soup I've ever tasted with you. Here goes.... 1 can of stewed tomatoes in your Vitamix, on high, for a minute or two. That's it. ... Read more
Hopefully I got it right this time
Last week I dumped some of my SparkTeams that I'd been with a while. Some that I dumped were fairly new. The thing that they had in common was the fact that I was going on the boards, asking questions, wanting support, and NOBODY even bothered... Read more
