Sunday, February 19, 2012      9 comments

I just decided this morning that my new plan will stay in effect until March 31, 2012. That is my hubby's 30th birthday party (yes, he is four years younger than I am!) and we're having a party that day at our house, when the house will be in an... Read more

Second Blog Post of the Day

Saturday, February 18, 2012      2 comments

Today, for the first time in a long time, I tracked all my calories. And as of right now I'm well within my range. Of course it's not even 5:30 P.M. yet and we're going to the gym tonight. However, if I'm hungry later tonight I'll have somethi... Read more

SparkPeople is the best. You guys on this site are so sweet and supportive, and it shocks me how many of you guys actually "get" me. :) Thank you so much for the comments on my downer of a post. I've been thinking about it, though, and I r... Read more

Confused & Conflicted

Saturday, February 04, 2012      12 comments

I want to be able to eat what I want and not have to constantly say no to food. I want to weigh less than 170 pounds. I read that it's basically impossible to maintain weight loss and figure I might as well stop trying. I read that it IS possibl... Read more

It's not just calories in vs. calories out...

Friday, January 20, 2012      8 comments

I apologize for stealing the blog title. I've seen the exact same title on others' blogs recently, and I agree! What I really want to write about is something more like, "My calorie intake seems to have differing impacts on my weight gain/loss... Read more

Saturday, January 14, 2012      5 comments

Hi Susan, Our entire show is based around a philosophy of gradual and permanent lifestyle change rather than going on or off a diet plan, and as in our name "fat2fit" we are not just about weight loss, but also becoming a fit and strong ... Read more

Saturday, January 07, 2012      16 comments

A warning - what I'm saying here is probably controversial and I'd be surprised if everyone who reads it agrees with me, but this is what I believe and hey, it's MY blog. :) I found these links on another Sparker's page last night (EWESTCOT... Read more

Just Doing It

Tuesday, January 03, 2012      8 comments

Nike has a great slogan, doesn't it? I mentioned the other day that I'd been doing a lot of private writing about my weight loss, hoping to come up with a grand plan that was going to get me back to a good weight, whatever the heck that mig... Read more

One week without treadmill - completed

Saturday, December 24, 2011      9 comments

Last I wrote, I'd been using the treadmill almost exclusively for my cardio, jogging for up to an hour at a time on it almost every day, and my knees and hips were in pain! I decided last Friday to take a week off, and I'm so glad I did. The hi... Read more

I'm in a much better mood than I was when I last wrote. I watched a YouTube video that was linked to someone's blog (wish I still had the link to share) that suggested that, for health, we all commit to limiting our sitting/lying down time ... Read more
