It's been a while!
Well, it's been almost 2 years since I've been on Sparkpeople. I took a quick break to have a kid and breastfeed for a year, which, contrary to popular belief, does NOT make you lose weight! It just made me hungry. I actually lost 20lbs durin... Read more
Seven reasons why I'm getting rid of my scale!
Well, I've been Sparking for a couple of months now (this time around), and I have decided that the scale is more harm than help. I lost the first 13 lbs pretty quickly, but now I've been hovering around the same weight for a while, and even go... Read more
Couch to 5K and BREAD!!!
Hubbs and I started the couch to 5K program today. It went pretty well, although after the 5th running interval I just couldn't run anymore. I guess I'm going to have to work up to "Week 1 Day 1" of the program. I was proud of myself though t... Read more
To not be hungry...
Two days ago, I was, for no reason I can put my finger on, just NOT HUNGRY all day. I wasn't sick; I just wasn't hungry. I don't think I've ever in my life before that day had a day where I wasn't sick but also wasn't just hungry all day. I k... Read more
I don't hate my swimsuit body!
Revelation for today: I may not be bikini-ready, but I'm damn sure going to throw on a suit and enjoy myself. In the past, I've let my insecurities about my body stop me from doing things like going to the beach or swimming at a pool party. Th... Read more
Day Whatever...I've lost count, but I'm still here!
Well, so much for the blogging every day; I clearly don't have the follow through for that! ;) However, I am moving in the right direction. Since I've been back on SP, I've made some good progress, and I've adjusted my goals a bit to be more r... Read more
Day 31 - Success comes in many forms!
I started out on SP with a bang and was in serious danger of ending with a whimper. I started strong and lost weight at first, then over the last couple of weeks was stumbling along a bit. I wasn't tracking my food all the time (even though I'... Read more
Day 23 - Temporary Insanity?
I'm going to claim temporary insanity as the reason why I haven't been on SP at all over the last several days. I've been eating pretty well, but without tracking there's no way to know if I was really completely in my calorie range. Ah well, I... Read more
I lost another 1.8 lbs! Yay! I kept getting on the scale last week and there was NO movement. I kept telling myself to just stick with my plan, and I did. I even had a reward meal! I'm so glad to see some progress on the scale, but that's r... Read more
Well, I've been doing pretty darn well for the last 2 weeks, so I decided to give myself a reward meal. Here's the rules:
I can order whatever I want
I MUST still track it
NO feeling guilty. Just ... Read more
Well, it's been an interesting week! I've been doing very well with tracking my food and staying within my goals, but I'm definitely going to have to start adding some exercise into my plan. Right now the weight is at a standstill, but at leas... Read more
Well, today is day 7 of me following my plan, and I'm proud to say that I've lost 4 pounds! I am so happy! I'm sure that my weight loss will slow down soon, and I'm sure I'll hit a plateau or two along the way. However, I know that each day t... Read more
Yesterday was good, but I unintentionally went under my calories, fat, carbs, and protein for the day. I wasn't actively trying to eat less than the other days this week; I just ate when I was hungry. I'm going to have to make sure that I get ... Read more
Oh, Sparkpeople. I love you, but this is hilarious. I was searching for "light vegenaise," and up popped "Did you mean light vagina's?" complete with the misplaced apostrophe to top it off. No, I did not mean "light vagina's," but thanks for ... Read more
