This site is truly amazing. The thing I'm noticing most at just over two months and 15 lbs down is how full and satisfied I am within my 1300-1600 calorie range. I'd never have believed that I could eat so well, so much less in some ways and m... Read more

After two days, I gave notice at my new job and feel very good about having done so. I was concerned from the first about air quality--lots of dust, probable mold. Asthma runs in my family, and I already have airborne allergies. On the ... Read more

:-) 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

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

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

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
