Cautiously Optimistic

Wednesday, May 07, 2014      3 comments

This is a follow up to my last blog post so it probably won't make any sense if you haven't read that one, LOL! My lawyer tried to call my ex only to find his phone has been disconnected. So she emailed him, and surprisingly, he answered ve... Read more

Proud of myself for not stress eating

Wednesday, April 30, 2014      5 comments

Well. The "old me" would have gone downstairs tonight and eaten a bunch of junk food. My eleven-year old son wants to change his last name to mine, and his father (who has not so much as called him in two and a half years) responded to the ... Read more


Thursday, April 10, 2014      2 comments

My daily task for SparkCoach today is to blog about time-wasters in my life and how I could put that time to better use. My culprits are usually Internet timekillers: I spend too much time online. If I set aside specific times for getting o... Read more

Gluten Free

Friday, April 04, 2014      4 comments

I've been gluten free for a little over a week now. (I didn't write down the day I started and wish I had...oops!) I lost 1.7 pounds this week, which might or might not be all about the dietary change, but I'm eager to see if the trend cont... Read more

"Second Look" Mammogram

Monday, December 02, 2013      5 comments

On November 6th, I had my routine mammogram. At the time, I had forgotten that I'd had one the year before, and had tried to have the imaging center I went to in Washington several years ago send what I thought was my most recent mammogram from ... Read more

Good-bye, 190s!

Wednesday, November 27, 2013      4 comments

This is not the first time I've left the 190s but I am determined that it will be the last. I still have a lot of other milestones to hit; many of them are in my signature on SP so that I can visibly and semi-publicly hold myself accountabl... Read more

Coming up on four years

Friday, November 22, 2013      3 comments

I joined SP in December of 2009 (very late in the month, almost New Year's). I had fairly immediate success, losing about 20 pounds in the first six months of 2010. I did it by tracking all my food and exercise, walking my son to and from school... Read more

30 Days of Thankfulness

Monday, November 04, 2013      3 comments

I usually do this on Facebook but decided this year, I want to put it all in one place where I can look at it in a list form, so I'm doing it as a blog entry I will edit throughout the month. (I'll aim to edit daily but if I don't have time to g... Read more

Rising to the Challenge

Saturday, October 05, 2013      7 comments

A couple of teammates have posted a blog answering the challenge to list 5 things they like about their bodies, and commented on how hard it was because of negative self-talk. I realized this is something I should do too, and it wasn't easy, but... Read more

Emotional Eating, But Not Anymore

Wednesday, July 24, 2013      5 comments

Well, I got some very bad news last week, and the combination of that and being on vacation put me right into nearly a week of emotional eating--not huge amounts of food, but comfort food rather than healthy food. I'm not going to focus on ... Read more


Saturday, May 04, 2013      4 comments

Clearly I fell off the wagon with weekly goal tracking, as well as with pretty much my whole plan. Again. Last night, I had a long phone conversation with a friend who is also struggling with her weight. After telling her about SP, I c... Read more

Goal Tracker for March 10-16, 2013

Wednesday, March 13, 2013      3 comments

I didn't do well with the exercise goals last week (yoga and walking Aidan to school) because I was swamped with term papers and let that sidetrack me. This is the last week of the quarter, so I expect to struggle with that again this week but w... Read more

Spring Challenge Goals

Sunday, February 24, 2013      3 comments

The spring challenge I am on hasn't technically started yet, but I am going to post my basic goals and start tracking them now. Each Sunday I will make a new blog entry with the goals, and then I will put a letter for each day I meet the goal (S... Read more

Proud of Myself Today

Tuesday, January 08, 2013      5 comments

And here is why I am proud: 1. I packed healthy snacks to take to work. 2. I did a healthy grocery shopping trip to stock up for the next two weeks, which are going to be very busy. Other an going for more fresh produce when I run out, I ... Read more
