RESET TWO - Starting Over Again

Monday, August 31, 2015      2 comments

I was inspired to blog today by a comment I saw on another Spark blog reminding me to be my own priority. And I can see, I forgot to do that and here I am now with a 10 lb gain. This has been a year of living stressfully and I see how old... Read more

Reset - Review

Wednesday, May 06, 2015      3 comments

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

Suger Free Mom

Saturday, April 18, 2015      3 comments

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!

Tuesday, March 17, 2015      3 comments

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

Wednesday, February 04, 2015      3 comments

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

No to Carbs. No to patterns.

Sunday, December 21, 2014      4 comments

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

I'm cold! Another tale of missing the big picture

Tuesday, November 11, 2014      2 comments

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

Friday, October 31, 2014      5 comments

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!

Tuesday, October 28, 2014      4 comments

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

Wednesday, October 08, 2014      3 comments

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
