I Am More Than My Weight Loss

Sunday, September 02, 2012      8 comments

Last week a friend noticed my weight loss and I was happy, She was one of the first few who mentioned it. That was nice. Even nicer was all the nice things my Spark friends have written--THANKS! I saw this friend again yesterday and all she... Read more

Finally--A Scale Victory!!

Saturday, September 01, 2012      10 comments

The past 3-4 weeks have been a real trial for me. I only weigh once a week, as suggested, but it was discouraging when I knew I was following the calorie/protein/carb/fat eating plan, not cheating and still not losing weight. In fact, one week I... Read more

Laundry Day

Friday, August 31, 2012      7 comments

Got my bike ride in and went to the laundromat early, before it got too hot and crowded. It was even pleasantly cool sitting outside in the shade. Glad to have that done! Found one more pair of slacks that are too big. That's good news beca... Read more

To the Dump, to the Dump, to the Dump, Dump, Dump!

Wednesday, August 29, 2012      10 comments

The title is the answer to the old riddle: Where do the Lone Ranger and Tonto take their garbage? Well, that's were I'm sending some of my fat clothes--the ones that are really too ragged, too stretched out, too ugly even for a poor person ... Read more

I'm a Heavy Drinker

Tuesday, August 28, 2012      15 comments

But I'm losing weight! Drinking water is a major part of SP and I didn't drink enough of it before I joined. When I joined SP in June I had 3 large plastic glasses [like everyone has for picnic or just every day]. I would fill up all 3 and line ... Read more

Routine Is the Key to My Success

Monday, August 27, 2012      9 comments

After a very stressful last week, this week promises to be better. Lots of distractions, travel and other oddities made it easy to get off my journey from fatness to fitness last week. But I'm back in my little routine and this week I'll try to ... Read more

They Finally Noticed My Weight Loss!!

Sunday, August 26, 2012      27 comments

Yesterday a friend asked me if I had been losing weight. I was wearing a glittery top and a new lacy jacket with black slacks [which are too big] and I did look kind of hot. I admitted that I had lost weight. The large fellow asked how much and ... Read more

Binge Eating in a Healthy Kitchen

Saturday, August 25, 2012      14 comments

I was so exhausted yesterday after 2 nights of restless sleep before travel days and getting up at 4:00 AM to catch early flights. When I got home at 10:00 AM I put on my nighty because I planned to nap and rest all day--no energy to do anything... Read more

Wow! This is hard!!

Friday, August 24, 2012      8 comments

Travel really puts me off my routine. Guess I'm just a creature of habit. I ate over my calories yesterday even though I packed healthy snacks. I didn't leave enough room to be invited out to dinner. We ate Chinese food with lots of veggies, so ... Read more

Airport Walking

Thursday, August 23, 2012      10 comments

I'll be getting my exercise today walking in airports. That may seem like a cop-out, but the last time I had to change planes at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix I think I walked nearly a mile at a quick clip to be sure to make my connection. ... Read more

All Packed and Ready to Go

Wednesday, August 22, 2012      11 comments

Tomorrow I'm flying out at an unfriendly 6:25 AM. Trying to be at the airport an hour early will be a challenge. I've set the alarm for 4:00 AM. Fortunately the airport is only about 20 minutes from my place. But in a way it's good. This flight ... Read more

Shrinking the Wardrobe

Tuesday, August 21, 2012      11 comments

My favorite nightgown for warm weather was getting too big. Hooray! The straps kept falling off my shoulders and that really bothered me the most. I didn't mind that it was full and loose in the body--that's comfortable. So last night I bro... Read more

Dealing with Stress and Strong Emotions

Monday, August 20, 2012      17 comments

Stress and strong emotions have a peculiar effect on me: it shows up in frequent trips to the toilet. At least it does now that I don't just hit the fridge and binge eat. This is an effect I can't control [well, Pepto Bismol helps]. The rea... Read more

A New Week with Nowhere to Go But UP

Sunday, August 19, 2012      7 comments

Had a good day of rest today. Slept late. Minimal exercise--10 minutes walking at an easy pace. I love my exercise, but I love my day of rest, too! Spent some time with my cat who will not eat or drink anything now--the end is near. Vet sai... Read more

Not the Best Week of My Life

Sunday, August 19, 2012      9 comments

When it rains, it pours. This has not been the best week for me. Started last Sunday with a stupid hip injury, the second uncle died in two weeks--the last of my mom's siblings, my cat has been to the vet and run up more in one visit than I've s... Read more
