An Admitted Reward Junkie

Friday, April 02, 2010      11 comments

With this blog I will reach 20,000 SparkPoints and get my next trophy. I've tracked a lot of food, completed a lot of cardio and strength training, been motivated by reading about others' successes and efforts, and learned a lot by reading Spark... Read more

This Is It!?!!

Thursday, April 01, 2010      15 comments

Weight wise I'm entering a new phase. I got on the scale yesterday and it was 126.6. For the first time, more of me thought "too low" than wanted to celebrate the loss. I had a good 1700 healthy calorie day yesterday, burning over 300 calories, ... Read more

Challenges of Using and Understanding the SP Nutrition Tracker

Wednesday, March 31, 2010      3 comments

Anyone else having difficulty getting all the nutrients without going over? I've been tracking here on SP several months now and see some real trends. For example, I'm often over on iron unless I don't take my multivitamin. If I don't take the m... Read more

Whitening

Tuesday, March 30, 2010      12 comments

In the last year I have spent beaucoup -- bowcoo -- boughkoo - however you spell it -- but you get the idea, lots of bucks on my teeth. Two fillings, my first root canal, five crowns, and something else or two I'm forgetting. Seemed like I was a... Read more

More Rewards of Healthy Living

Monday, March 29, 2010      5 comments

Yesterday while I was on the elliptical trainer I read on closed caption TV that this year is a bad one for allergies locally. After an unusually cold winter, many trees and plants are blooming late, so that there is a double dose of usual and l... Read more

No Harm Done. Lesson Learned.

Sunday, March 28, 2010      14 comments

After losing 80 pounds I look like a slender person. But reality is, I can still lose "it" really easily. Last eve I almost fell into a box of Honey Kix and I could have gotten trapped with no way but to eat myself out. Luckily, I came to my se... Read more

Go Ahead. Play with Your Food!

Saturday, March 27, 2010      10 comments

Several people liked this comment I made in response to a blog question about getting kids to eat veggies: *********************** My 3 year old granddaughter and I make eating veggies a game. With asparagus, I hand her the cooked spear. ... Read more

Tell Me About Your Best SparkStreak

Friday, March 26, 2010      7 comments

The concept of streaks makes a whole lot of sense to me. This journey is so much about behavior, and the scale -- with its perverse nature -- does not always reward behavior. You can truly struggle, give your all, and even win, yet the old scale... Read more

Shake It Off!

Thursday, March 25, 2010      16 comments

I have probably attended hundreds of Weight Watcher meetings. I have never left one without feeling that I benefitted in some way. Most of the time, though, three days later I don't remember the topic or much about the meeting. However, our Polk... Read more

Learning to Wait

Wednesday, March 24, 2010      6 comments

Some lessons it seems I have to learn more than once. This morning I woke up hungry. Very hungry. I ate a little. I had some coffee. I ate some more. I had another cup of coffee. I ate some more. Hunger, hunger. I've already eaten 485 calor... Read more

Zumba Delusions

Tuesday, March 23, 2010      9 comments

Today I went to the Basic Zumba class at the Y. I've been going to the regular Zumba class but I thought perhaps I could do better keeping up with the moves if I spent a little time at the elementary level. It was lots of fun, and like the regu... Read more

Still Celebrating!

A year ago today I made my Weight Watcher goal. A year! Wow!!! I have now been at a healthy BMI for a full year. My cholesterol and blood pressure, both of which were high, are now normal. I feel better. I have much more energy. I am happier. I ... Read more

How Did You Learn Portion Control?

Sunday, March 21, 2010      12 comments

This week's Weight Watcher meeting was all about portion control. Our leader came out in clothes, hat, and shoes way too big for her. She then took off the huge shirt and had on a too tight shirt underneath. Then she took it off and the huge pan... Read more

You Can't Do Everything

Saturday, March 20, 2010      13 comments

Sometimes you have to make decisions. You just can't be more than one place at once - at least I don't know anyone who can. Today I wanted to go to my Weight Watchers meeting and I wanted to go to the YMCA for step aerobics/pilates/zumba and I w... Read more

My Favorite Filling Foods

Friday, March 19, 2010      12 comments

Today I was asked what my favorite filling foods are. Good question. The foods I think satisfy me the most and help me stay within my calorie range include oatmeal, bananas, apples, fresh broccoli, brown rice, low sodium canned beans (blac... Read more
