My BMI is 25.2
A healthy BMI is 24.9 or less....I am SO CLOSE!!! At my highest weight ever, which I think was about 183, I was only 3 pounds away from being obese. Ick, I didn't know that at the time! Right now, I am only 2 pounds away from A HEALTHY WEIGHT... Read more

How SP Helped Me Today
I am SO GRATEFUL for the nutrition tracker. I had planned a healthy vegetable soup for dinner, but before I ate it, I entered the ingredients into a new "food grouping" (LOVE that option) and looked at my daily totals. Uh oh - it put me way to... Read more
Yesterday I was at 156.2 (lowest I've been this diet) and today I was at 156.8, but I was actually glad because I thought it would go up more. In terms of logging what I eat, exercising, staying within my ranges...I'm keeping it up, no problem.... Read more
Down 3.2 lb in 1 day?!?!
Yesterday I was at 159.4. Today I was at 156.2. WOW. I am soaring. I know that it's highly likely I'll see a "gain" over the next few days, but it won't be a true gain of fat weight. I'm sure water weight and other things have a huge impact... Read more
9 minutes, 50 seconds
That's how fast I ran a mile today at the gym. Woohoo! AND, it was after 45 minutes on the gauntlet stair climber. It was hard and I was sweating and red, but I did it.
I'm really proud of myself...lately I've eaten well at restaurants, ... Read more
Back down to 159.4 today and feeling good. As much as I tell myself it's really not all about the scale, I can't help but be affected. On a day that I'm up I feel so discouraged, and on a day that I'm down I'm just so happy and want to keep it... Read more

ANOTHER Gain :( :(
Wednesday (today) 162.8
Man, this sucks! I'm staying within my points, if you allow activity & flex points anyway. I am now calculating activity points by calling my workouts "moderate" rather than "high" in... Read more
I went from 159.2 on Monday to 160.8 on Tuesday (today). It was my first gain. Yesterday I was all proud of myself for eating treats in moderation. I had a large chocolate chip cookie, a very small bite of muenster cheese, and two small tacos... Read more
Just wanted to quickly write...
Went downhill skiing yesterday, 4th time ever. 5.5 hours of skiing, quite a lot of exercise! Ate healthy all day, packed food to bring, even had a VERY healthy salad with grilled chicken and no dressing and a ... Read more
My First Week on SparkPeople: The Benefits
Okay, so this isn't really my first week on SP...but it is the first week I've actually taken advantage of all (well, lots - there's too much on here for me to say "all") it has to offer.
Here is a list of the benefits I have been able to enjo... Read more
Things I have Learned Since Starting SP - and, my First WW Meeting
First, things I have learned:
1. It's so much easier to control your calories when you are not starving yourself! It would be so easy to stay within my SP recommended range. I just hope that doesn't have to drop too much as I lose weight...... Read more
I had a workout droop today...when I'm doing cardio and gradually get to a point where I feel like I need to stop and lie down and eat. It started when I had been going about 38 minutes on the elliptical trainer and I made myself go to 45 minut... Read more
