:-) I actually looked forward to today's checkup. I printed up a few of my SparkPeople trackers to share with my doctor to show her what I've been doing that accounts for the 15 lbs I've lost so far. Of course, it didn't look that way on her ... Read more

WHOOHOO! After being out of work for 18 months, I have a job, starting tomorrow! It sounds like just what I need, number of hours, similar work, etc, but I'm out of practice! This will mean a whole new routine, including packing lunches. I n... Read more

Count me in among the Exercise Resisters. I'm sure there are plenty of us out there. I'd rather read a book anytime. But...SIGH...that won't help me reach my goals, and somehow, I just don't think "3o min - read book" is going to cut it on my... Read more

Heavy yardwork is figuring large in my fitness tracking. So what's with the yardwork? My husband works long hours and simply hasn't enough time to keep up with it, even though he's a passionate gardener, and I'M NOT. The gardening genes misse... Read more

I AM HUNGRY! Since starting 55 days ago, this is the most tempted I've been to head for the pantry and eat ANYTHING. So what am I doing instead? 1. I'm noticing with surprise that I AM doing something instead. I'm not in the kitchen, ... Read more

Reading scale for fun! Wow!

Well! That's a first. I was so excited about my scale numbers that I did it again this morning just for the pleasure of seeing what it said! I have NEVER EVER viewed that thing as entertainment before. I can hardly wait for the next lb when ... Read more

Having bloodwork done today, fasting, so I know I'll be really hungry. I'm taking nuts and a banana with me so I won't be tempted to have a high cal breakfast out. Got to think around the compulsive creature within. At first I thought I'd go ... Read more

My recipe

Tuesday, October 04, 2011      1 comments

Whew! I just spent a good while figuring out how to calculate the nutrition info on my dinner and how to enter it as a recipe to save. I did it! My recipe is my own creamy leek soup without potatoes. No, I don't have an aversion to potatoes;... Read more

Yesterday, I went to two events where food was served. I made good choices, had moderate portions, substituted fruit for a dessert, chose to eat dessert at the second event, went over my calorie range. BUT - the good news is: I did not eat co... Read more

I raised my daily calorie count slightly to take my vitamins & supplements into account. I'm wondering if I'm not getting enough of something; my energy level hasn't been as good as I'd like. I'll try the few extra calories this week and see h... Read more

I just won 500 SparkPoints! And what is my reaction? "I don't deserve this." I had been out for dinner, made much better choices than I would have if I were not on SparkPeople, though my calorie count was higher than usual. I needed this per... Read more

Too much SparkPeople?

Tuesday, September 20, 2011      0 comments

One month and four days of success! Today's goal is to keep track of how much time I'm spending on SparkPeople; I don't want to swap one compulsive activity for another. I'm finding the site so interesting that I could spend hours reading arti... Read more

Keeping on keeping on!

What encourages me most about SparkPeople is all the ways to stay on track. I'm actually enjoying adding up calories and seeing what and how much I'm eating--or NOT eating! Got brave & weighed myself this morning; down several pounds. I am NO... Read more
