No More Scale at the Back
Monday, August 29, 2011      5 comments

In my Doctor's office, there are two scales. The one at the front of the office goes up to 300 pounds. If you weigh over 300, you have to go to the scale at the back of the office to be weighed. In the less than one month I have been with Sparkp... Read more
Does anyone else remember Stupefyin Jones?
Sunday, August 21, 2011      4 comments

All my life I haven’t really wanted to be just thinner, I have wanted to be stupefying. Like Julie Newmar as Stupefyin Jones from Lil’ Abner, Jayne Mansfield in The Girl Can’t Help It or Jane Russell in The Outlaw. For those of you who bel... Read more

This morning my alarm was set for 5:15 so I could go with my bff to pick up fruit and vegetables from a co-op. It was a beautiful drive and we got to enjoy the wonderful smell of sweet fresh fruit in the car as we drove back home. It is st... Read more

The hardest part yesterday wasn't staying away from the empty calories at work. Dinner was easy because we planned on Panda Express Sunday night for the first day of school. After I got out of school, I picked my son up from college, picked my h... Read more

Sunday morning I knew my weight had gone down because the towel wrapped closed around my hips. Now, I do use an extra large spa towel, but 2 weeks ago it didn't. This morning's weigh in just clinched it-288. I did my disbelief thing and made my ... Read more
Getting Help Visualizing
Saturday, August 13, 2011      4 comments This website lets you create a virtual self. The only downside is that for my height the maximum weight it can visualize is 275, but it let me do my mid goal and my final goal from 275. ... Read more

Weigh in Day
Monday, August 08, 2011      3 comments

I must admit I am stunned. I weighed four times and got the same number-294. I will weigh less than 290 for my birthday. I would like to weigh 284, but that might be pushing it. I will keep planning my exercise and my meals. I will get there on... Read more

I have got to admit, I am a little nervous. I have never begun a change that wasn't really drastic and made me an irritable witch in the first week. I haven't starved or over-exercised to the point that I ache all the time. In fact, I feel good.... Read more

Today, I have had a headache most of the day. I have spent a lot of the day in bed trying to sleep it off. I get migraines at times and try to wait out regular headaches so the Excedrin will work when I really need it. On a normal day like this,... Read more

What a Wonderful Day!
Tuesday, August 02, 2011      2 comments

I have written in my journal this morning and planned out the day. Not minute by minute, but what things I want to do today. Yesterday reading through all of the Fast Sparks-I realized that each one is a choice. Our lives are made up of a serie... Read more
