Reset - Review
So now that I'm in 'reset' mode, I've also been reviewing and there are good things for me to acknowledge. Since I re-joined Spark in 2013 I've made major changes that have stayed with me.
I no longer eat through my anger with food or so... Read more
RESET! when maintaining goes awry
I've been 'maintaining' for several months. I just stopped losing about 3 pounds from my goal, but held steady, which actually seemed okay. But after my winter trip I had a gain and although I lost some of it, I did not return to my pre-trip w... Read more
Suger Free Mom
I've been meaning to share about this blog and today's the day. I found it while googling for a recipe and right away signed up for email posts. Sugar-free is not my own focus, as it's not a taste I crave and was an easy one for me to let go, ... Read more
Scale avoidance, scale fear, scale depression - oh my!
One day about 10 days ago I stepped on the scale and it showed I had gained about 5 pounds overnight! Yikes! Then it showed ups and downs and finally it showed that I weighed 14 pounds, so I knew the scale had gone kaflooey.
I bought a ... Read more
What I learned from my winter travel
As you might recall, my husband and I spent Oct to the beginning of Dec, sorting, packing, giving away - downsizing to a new apt and putting our house on the market. A lot of work, but happily done. We had planned a trip to Florida for the wi... Read more
Snack Attack! But back on track
We,re in Florida for a month and although we planned this last summer, we didn't know we would really need a true, restful vacation. But after our last 3 months of downsizing and moving, we've discovered that we both needed to just be off the g... Read more
No to Carbs. No to patterns.
Recently my husband and I had a contretemps about something, the specific of which, neither of us now remember, but we both reacted from our old patterns. And these are patterns that just arise and one finds oneself having the same reaction and... Read more
Spin the Wheel! Get points! It actually works for me.
As you might know, I have been having big changes the last two months - my husband and I decided to downsize to an apartment from our large house and it has been busy busy busy. My step-daughter wanted to come for a final visit in our old place... Read more
I'm cold! Another tale of missing the big picture
Recently it got cold here in Virginia and on that day it was also very windy. We went for our morning river walk. I wore my nice polartech coat from past years and a hat and gloves. But halfway through the walk I got thoroughly chilled. Walk... Read more
Ooops forgot - it's not just the scale
On our morning walk today I told my husband about my blog post about 'holding steady' rather than losing. I also mentioned that I was a bit surprised that so many of last winter's clothes didn't fit, since I had lost a good bit of weight by the... Read more
Plateau or Holding Steady - attitude shift!
Awhile back after a FatFast I hit my goal. I always would say 'first goal' because, of course, I liked the idea of going 10 pounds lower. I have spent a lot of my life waiting for and going for those extra '10 pounds'.
About a week afte... Read more
Moving forward and literally, moving
I shared my mixed emotions about downsizing our house and moving to an apartment in our same city. In the end, I have made a sea-change and I'm not only totally on board with it all, I'm raring to go. We returned to the new apt complex and loo... Read more
Emerging to Balance
Thanks for everyone's support. I finally got myself to a balanced place and shared with my husband all the feelings that emerged. A friend gave me a good insight when I said that I really didn't understand the pressure he felt about the mainte... Read more
