Starting Over Again...Mean girl vs. Nice girl
Saturday, November 15, 2014      3 comments

I am good at beating up on myself...my friend calls it "mean girl." It's like there are two of me...one is being really mean to me and telling me what a failure I am. It's that perfectionist thing that says "if you can't do it perfectly, then i... Read more

Sunday, January 27, 2013      1 comments

I just re-read my Spark Page. I have the lofty goal of where I want to end up, but I also had some action goals that don't have an end....I forget so easily but I was pleased to see that I was meeting these goals more often than not these days.... Read more

Thursday, December 06, 2012      0 comments

I am pretty excited about this yogurt that I've passed by so many times in the dairy section in the past. I've been stuck on greek yogurt for quite awhile but I am unemployed at the moment and was searching for an inexpensive yogurt as I can't a... Read more
Victoria Secret Fashion Show...Be a model or just look like one
Wednesday, December 05, 2012      2 comments

Just finished watching the VS Fashion Show tonight. In the past, I would avoid such things so I wouldn't have to feel bad about letting myself go or that I don't have that 1% of the world's genes. Instead, I am at a place that I really can app... Read more

I have been in couch potato mode for awhile now and ignoring SP but I don't want to give up the chance to get healthy. My life is worth more than that to me! I have gained quite a bit more weight since my last post-about 20lbs I think. I'... Read more

Interesting pattern is emerging since I started doing Weight Watchers (unofficially-I just went online and got all of the information myself). I have struggled to stay within point range, but even worse, I went from eating a lot of protein to a... Read more

Thursday, May 05, 2011      6 comments

I finished a 40 day round of HCG. I get that it's very controversial not an approved diet on SP and generates a lot of negativity...something in my journey that I will not participate in. I joined SP for support. I don't intend to blog about ... Read more

Saturday, March 19, 2011      4 comments

Wow, it's been awhile since I've blogged. I have had some setbacks. I injured my back (again!) and I started to unravel pretty quickly when I can't do everyday things, let alone exercise. Then after a few sessions of physical therapy, I was s... Read more
Day 37 Started Reading "The Spark" and My Birthday
Sunday, February 06, 2011      2 comments

Something I read that has helped with my discouragement about not losing weight pertained to the idea that if I am doing this to lose weight... than in the long term I won't stay with it anyway. I need to see this as a lifetime change. So I do... Read more

Day 30 What I learned about Medical Weight Loss Clinics
Saturday, January 29, 2011      2 comments

I think it's kind of interesting... Mind you I didn't go to the initial consultation because it was pricey but I was able to extract a lot of information from the nurse over the phone. The difference is they can prescribe appetite suppress... Read more
