I had decided to write a blog called Motivation over the weekend. I was planning to explain why I am not needing motivational support from Spark Members. Both my parents have/had heart conditions and we are talking a lot of medicines that I am... Read more

Saturday, August 30, 2008      4 comments

August has been totally awesome for me. I owe this to Huggers1 for recommending the Walk Away The Pounds videos and to Kalh7338 for teaching me about "banking calories" aka calorie deficit. Also to my sister who gave me a used pedometer which ... Read more

Thursday I donated blood and of course lost the pound from the giving. I took my own orange as my after donation snack! But I was off my veggies a few days, don't know why unless the body called for carbs to make the new blood? But, I never w... Read more

I am supposed to blog! I had blogged but deleted the wrong one and lost my blog, A Matter of Perspective! I had to change my profile because it was looking so pretty and slim - from the front! So, now I have one from the side. Eew! Real... Read more

Nowhere To Go But Down

Monday, August 04, 2008      7 comments

I weigh every day at home, I have a Weight Watchers scale that is totally awesome. This time for me is different - my moods are no longer decided by the scale. I have nowhere to go but down. But every time I get to 178.+ I wind up back at... Read more

Never be afraid of your scale. It is a tool, nothing more. It cannot humiliate you unless you allow it to. A scale is a lifeless inaccurate measurement of your worth. We are all priceless if we only believe in ourselves. No matter how ... Read more
