After getting so much positive feedback on yesterday's blog entry about running (thanks guys!) I decided to sign up for the race I'd been hemming and hawing about - the New Charles River Run. I registered this morning - I'm doing it! There is a... Read more

I love to run. I really must be a different person now than I was pre-Spark. When I was a kid, I didn't know how to run properly. We had those mile runs once a year in middle school gym class; I'd sprint out ahead of everyone and get a st... Read more
Maintanence Plan!

Now that I have defined my goal weight as 140, I have a whole new perspective. This is the first time I have had a goal weight that I absolutely knew I would achieve. On all my pre-Spark diets I had no idea what I was capable of, and on both o... Read more

I finally decided to commit to a goal weight of 140 pounds. To make it official, I changed my Spark Page goals and weight loss ticker to reflect this. I intentionally picked a goal weight that is NOT the lowest weight I can achieve. It is... Read more

Boy am I in a good mood. I had a wonderfully long sleep last night, had my morning green tea out on my patio while reading Health magazine, and oh yeah, I finally had a great weigh-in!!! After about two weeks of my weight barely changing, I fi... Read more
A Tale of Two Pants
Tuesday, May 05, 2009      15 comments

I have two pairs of pants that are exactly the same - same brand, same style, same color - there are only two differences: 1) one is capri-length, one is full-length, and 2) one is size 10 and the other is size 4. This morning I was getting... Read more

More Ruminations about Goal Weight
Thursday, April 23, 2009      3 comments

The more I think about it, the more important I think it is to have a goal weight and stick to it. Unfortunately, I'm no more decisive about it now than I have been! On the one hand, I know I am capable of getting my weight down to the mid... Read more

Just got home from blowing big bucks at Stop & Shop. I know Market Basket is cheaper, but S&S was on my way home and I figured they'd have a bigger selection (that ended up being only partly true though..) So now I'm sitting here eating organi... Read more
