Liking what I see in the Mirror

Saturday, March 28, 2015      2 comments

Having lost a good 10 lbs from my 132 lb frame, I am in an in-between stage--not too thin but thinner. My face reflects it in droves. There's a structure to my face that wasn't ... Read more

Triumphing After a Year

Thursday, March 26, 2015      5 comments

What does it mean to triumph? It means that you've made enough changes to see a difference over a period of time. It can also mean little successes every single day that you can lean on to help you to see that you're going to be successful in ev... Read more

Back to Basics

Sunday, March 22, 2015      4 comments

This is my second year in SP and I am in a weight loss phase after having a year of learned maintenance. I learned about the differences in an article I read on SP about two study groups in a weight loss study. The first learned weight maintenan... Read more

No Streaks But Down Anyway

Sunday, May 25, 2014      4 comments

I have taken a break from tracking my exercise and nutrients on SparkPeople but I haven't stopped tracking them internally. For that reason, I have lost weight--not a lot, but down is down! When you're using a digital scale, a few ounces makes a... Read more

I will: Eat clementines at night. I will: Not talk myself into eating at night When hungry, I will eat something that I KNOW I'm okay with, so I don't have to live a lie, which is EATING ANYTHING IS OKAY AND IT WON'T M... Read more

Big Eater, Big Talker

Wednesday, May 07, 2014      2 comments

I think I eat and talk a lot and like to use my mouth for a whole lot of other reasons. This being said, eating is a wonderful diversion. Yesterday I had fun in my house, where I pretended my house was the grocery store and I was the custom... Read more

BMR, BMI and A, B, C, D, E, F, G

Wednesday, April 30, 2014      8 comments

So after spending about 30 minutes calculating and recalculating my BMR (relatively easy) and my BMI (much, much harder for me to get), I came away with much confusion over my base and my high caloric allotment given to me by SP. Which lea... Read more

Becoming True to Myself

After six weeks on the program and enough weight, but not more than 10 combined lbs and inches, lost to make a visible overall difference in my appearance, I am back down to what I my common "normal", although, like obese people who after a cert... Read more

It is enough

Friday, April 25, 2014      4 comments

To get this far and to not congratulate myself would be to lose the lesson, so I've decided in this journey to say "dayenu"--it would have been enough--and to stop here. I've not given up the fight or changed my goals at all. I've decided that I... Read more

I wanted to be a race car driver

Thursday, April 17, 2014      2 comments

At age 52 3/4, I am finally stepping into adulthood. This means that I leave behind childish behavior and embrace courageous, uncomfortable behavior. What is uncomfortable is being the person I was meant to be, instead of the person I thin... Read more

Getting the hang of it

Tuesday, April 15, 2014      4 comments

I think I'm getting it, after almost six weeks on the program. I understand what we all learn after a while: that it's a numbers game. Very simply, what you take in must be less than what you burn off. If we search it out on the SP site, ... Read more

Looked in the Mirror

Thursday, April 10, 2014      2 comments

Uh OH--I looked in the horror mirror. And what did I see? The EXTERNAL me looking back. And did I like her? No, I did not like her. I picked her apart. Now, granted, before I began this program I had not really scrutinized myself without my clot... Read more
