Celebrating Vacation Success!

Friday, July 16, 2010      12 comments

I'm celebrating that I spent 2 weeks on vacation, did not journal, and didn't always have control over what I had to eat. (Church picnic with fatty hot dogs and family get together with greasier hamburgers, pizza, etc.) BUT I think I did pretty... Read more

Letting Go of Punitive Dieting

Wednesday, June 30, 2010      13 comments

The Days of Punitive Dieting are gone forever. Thank heavens! Starving is just not a smart strategy. Often it doesn't work at all, and when it does work, it doesn't work for the long run. I've read it and I've lived it. Today I want to think abo... Read more

Observations While Packing

Small clothes, and especially small summer clothes, take up less space in the suitcase than larger clothes. However, the athletic shoes take up a whole bunch of space. -Marsha... Read more

Planes, No Trains, and an Automobile

Monday, June 28, 2010      8 comments

As I get ready for my trip to South Dakota, Virginia, and back to Florida -- a total of 5 plane flights and 600 miles in a car -- I am really very thankful to be the size I am now. I remember back about 10 years ago I had a plane flight to... Read more

Staying My Favorite Size

Sunday, June 27, 2010      10 comments

I was asked, in response to a previous blog, if I maintained my weight loss wouldn't that mean I would stay in the same clothing size? (Hope I got that question about right, Monty.) Actually, I don't think the answer is yes. To stay the size I w... Read more

Wardrobe and Hunger

Thursday, June 24, 2010      12 comments

I bought a whole wardrobe at size 10 because I thought I was done losing. Then I bought a whole wardrobe at size 8 because I thought I was done. I didn't jump on buying 6's because I didn't think I'd stay there. But when I got down to a 4, the 8... Read more

Will Work For Stars

Wednesday, June 23, 2010      12 comments

As an admitted reward junkie, I am excited because I just found one more place where SparkPeople gives recognition. And it is extra exciting because it is for just about the most important thing that can be measured on SparkPeople. It's not a tr... Read more

Retail Therapy

Tuesday, June 22, 2010      11 comments

Today I went shopping. Instead of going to my favorite store where I frequent the 70% off and final sale rack, I went to an upscale shopping area. I thoroughly enjoyed trying on expensive things in little sizes. It really is the first time I've ... Read more

You've Got to Read this DailySpark if You are Anything Like Me!!

Monday, June 21, 2010      12 comments

I read the Daily Spark, "Conquering Eating and Other Impulses the Easy Way", a couple days ago. I read a lot of Spark articles, sometimes because I'm just racking up SparkPoints and sometimes to kill time so I'm not eating and sometimes because ... Read more

Past the Blahs

Sunday, June 20, 2010      11 comments

Yesterday I was feeling too blah to blog. But I'm back on it today. The scale is up, but only .8 pounds. I'll live. I'll even stay a healthy weight. And I'm trying to give up the "yelling" at myself when I slip. I wish I could be perfect. I... Read more

Minor Obstacle

Wednesday, June 16, 2010      10 comments

Last eve after pilates, my concern was confirmed. The callous on my left foot, running about 2.5 inches from my second toe toward my heel, produced a few drops of blood from a crack about 1/4 inch long. It had been sore for a couple days. The ca... Read more

May Be a Challenging Day

Monday, June 14, 2010      12 comments

I couldn't sleep last eve. Maybe got three hours. Gave up about 3:30am and got up. I walked for an hour, maybe 3 mph, slower than I usually walk. Thought I might as well put what energy I had to good use. Then did some laundry and house cleaning... Read more

Great Ride!

Sunday, June 13, 2010      9 comments

I rode with PINKSAINT 14.2 miles according to the SparkPeople fitness tracker mapping tool. It was definitely much more fun with a friend. The time went so fast --- almost 100 minutes gone in no time. Although the day will be hot, and this morni... Read more

Happy Trails to Me! Happy Trails to Us!

Saturday, June 12, 2010      9 comments

Tomorrow morning I have planned a long bike ride on a local trail with a SparkFriend! Should be lots of fun. I've been riding by myself and wishing for a partner, so this is just what I've wanted. She is much younger than I, so I hope, I hope, I... Read more

Wow! Today I have received 9 goodies and 58 comments on my SparkPage! I usually try to respond to each person, but don't think I'll get it done today. Hope everyone understands. It definitely has been a pick-me-up to be motivator of the day. Hon... Read more
