I Prefer to Eat More
Thursday, May 20, 2010      9 comments

I had a minor injury and had to cut back my exercise to allow my hip to heal. So I had to cut back my calorie range target in order to maintain my weight. My hip is now healed and I have added the calories back in. I know without I doubt t... Read more
Buffet Success
Wednesday, May 19, 2010      13 comments

I attended a buffet today. Several people commented that it was a difficult place to eat wisely. Not for me. I passed up the plain white dinner rolls. As far as I'm concerned they are nothing special. And then I didn't need the butter. So t... Read more
Learning from Our SparkFriends
Tuesday, May 18, 2010      10 comments

The new Secrets to Success section of SparkPeople has become a real favorite of mine. I love reading what other people have found helpful. One thing I didn't figure out until today, though, is how to find the Secrets to Success that a specific S... Read more
Community Team
Monday, May 17, 2010      9 comments

This week I joined the SparkPeople Community Team, which I think is a sign that I am entering a new phase. (I'm convinced there are phases of maintenance, but I've yet to identify them in predictable order. See previous blogs if curious.) I am f... Read more
Phases of Maintenance
Sunday, May 16, 2010      9 comments

A couple days ago WalkingAnnie postulated that perhaps maintenance has predictable phases kind of like group development (forming-storming-norming-perf
orming). I've been thinking about that statement quite a bit. I think she's probably corre... Read more
Measuring Goal Achievement
Saturday, May 15, 2010      9 comments

I do better when I have a goal to work toward. My most recent goal has been to lower my body fat percentage from 29%, the "acceptable" range, to 24%, the "fit" range. I wasn't sure that was achievable for me at age 60 after a lifetime of obesity... Read more
Declaration of Health
Wednesday, May 12, 2010      12 comments

I declare my hip officially healed! It did great for a whole hour of Zumba this eve. I planned to take it slow, but it was too motivating. I couldn't help it. I just got into it!! -Marsha... Read more
Teeth Whitening Update
Tuesday, May 11, 2010      4 comments

I've used the bleach and trays four nights and I can see that my teeth are slightly whiter. I greatly reduced my coffee and tea use for two weeks, but then went back to it. My teeth are still whiter than they were before I bleached. I have ... Read more
Glimmer of Sanity, Perhaps
Monday, May 10, 2010      10 comments

Sometimes I worry that I may be obsessed - with food, with the scale, with exercise, with smaller clothes, with my waist line, with SparkPeople, etc. But I had an experience this week that made me think perhaps a glimmer of sanity on this issue ... Read more
New and Improved Streaking!
Sunday, May 09, 2010      9 comments

I looked at each of my streaks, eliminated several and added a couple. Overall, I've gone from 14 streaks to 9. I now track the whole FEWSS (food/fuel, exercise, water, sleep & SparkPeople) program, and focus on one of my weaknesses. Here... Read more
Review of Last 2 Streaks
Saturday, May 08, 2010      2 comments

I added 2 streaks myself, streak numbers 13 and 14. Thirteen tracked that I burned 307 calories per day, a number SparkPeople had calculated that I was suppose to burn with the exercise program I had chosen. After injury, I reduced that to 120 c... Read more
Spark Review - Streaks Nine, Ten, Eleven, and Twelve
Friday, May 07, 2010      5 comments

My streak nine is to get 8 hours of sleep per night. My performance on this streak is the least impressive. My longest streak is 5 nights. However, overall I have gotten 8 or more hours of sleep 55% of the time since I started tracking this stre... Read more
Spark Review - Streak Eight
Thursday, May 06, 2010      5 comments

Well, even the title of this blog suggests the issue I want to address. I simply have too many streaks. I think 5 or 6 is probably enough. I want the streaks I end up with to capture the heart of my program. So that if my streaks are in good sha... Read more
Spark Review - Streak Seven
Wednesday, May 05, 2010      5 comments

My seventh streak is currently only at 11 days, although I achieved 141 days before forgetting one day. As part of the 50+ Maintainers Team I signed on to take a multi-vitamin pill daily. I honestly would like to meet with a RD at some poi... Read more
Spark Review - Streak Six
Tuesday, May 04, 2010      4 comments

My sixth streak I set up when I joined the W8Watcher Friends Team. I certainly do consider myself a Weight Watcher friend. I have benefited from Weight Watcher meetings and Weight Watcher materials. I lost down to BMI 25 on Weight Watchers and i... Read more
