Today I came back
Today I came back after a long time away
To return to the place that started my way,
To a new life, a new bod, a new start
In a new place, a new lease, a new heart.
I bought new pants, I saw myself shrink
But then I got scared--froz... Read more
No Streaks But Down Anyway
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

What I WILL
Eat clementines at night.
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
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
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.

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
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
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
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
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
Obsession about my Body
Now that I have lost enough weight to look significantly different, I look less in the mirror than I did before. Albeit, I am still in the middle of my journey and not at my final destination. This may be why I don't want to obsess about myself.... Read more
