Not much, but sets a good tone for the week
Just said no to banana bread in the teachers room.... Read more
Just wanted to write and say I'm pretty sure today was my fastest, most hardcore elliptical workout ever. In 65 minutes (60 minutes of fastness plus 5 minutes of cooldown) I did 7.21 miles and 1,019 calories. Yay. This was the first time I've ... Read more
I guess no matter how long I am at this healthy lifestyle/weight management thing, I really can never say that I have it all figured out. Whenever I start to think I can just naturally make good choices all the time, even dabbling in snacky foo... Read more
My name is Susan and I am a binge eater.
Last time I wrote I hinted that I'd had flickers of thoughts about binge eating. Well, I've since given in and binged. I guess it's just an area in which I'm vulnerable, and I'm going to always hav... Read more
The other day someone commented on a blog post I wrote three years ago. I'm an old Sparker....I joined in 2006 and have been using the site in full force for the better part of the past 4.5 years. I feel like at this point I have figured out w... Read more
Less than 5 pounds away from goal weight!
Back in early 2010, when I got married, my weight hovered around 145 for a little over a month, so somehow that became my goal weight. Still not sure whether that's my permanent goal weight, but I like how I feel at that weight.
Last night ... Read more
Hi! It's been a long time since I've blogged, but that's because there's really nothing new. I am in a great place with both my eating and exercise, and I feel really healthy and happy. I've only lost one pound or so (there are daily fluctuati... Read more
Cheerier outlook a few hours later...
I didn't binge. :) In fact I'm at under 1,600 calories so far today (at 8:20 P.M.) which is quite low for me. I may have a bit more to eat tonight but I'm not really that hungry today after last night's big seder. This afternoon I watched Fat H... Read more
Why the heck am I feeling like THIS again?!
Ughhh...every few months it happens, no matter what I do to prevent it, it seems: The binge monster reappears. Now get me straight - I am NOT saying I binged. I'm saying that the URGE to binge has reappeared. Before this, I hadn't wanted to bi... Read more
Weight Not Changing, and Intolerance to Food I Didn't Make
I just checked my SP weight report: on March 18 I weighed 155, and today on April 18 I weigh 154.6 which rounds to 155. It's been as low as 152 but keeps bouncing around. I guess I'm OK with this though. I think I am at a weight where I look k... Read more
Who would have guessed I'd LOVE my new home?!?
As some of you know, it took me a LONG time to sell my condo out in the 'burbs...over 17 months. When I was being honest with myself I really didn't mind that much that it wasn't selling though, because I liked living there. I've always been a... Read more
What do people really mean when they say "it's not a diet, it's a lifestyle"?
It's become a cliche: "Diets don't work. I'm not on a diet - I'm living a healthy lifestyle."
My (overly literal) reaction has always been, "But everyone has a diet - a diet is what you eat. Of course you can lose weight and get healthier ... Read more
I'm Officially a Bostonian!
Wow, what a busy few days it's been. We spent the entire weekend packing and moving, and then the closing on my condo happened on Monday. FINALLY! I'd been trying to sell since October 2009. I now live at the condo my husband has owned since ... Read more
Weight Dropping Rapidly!!
Last time I posted a blog was Monday, four days ago, and I was 159.8. Today I was 154.8! I'm eating 1,700-2,200 calories a day and not doing anything different this week exercise- or nutrition-wise. I'm not going to complain about unexpected w... Read more
