Good Check Up Today
Thursday, July 29, 2010      14 comments

The SparkPeople-inspired lifestyle pays off again! Good annual check up today. Blood pressure: 112/70. The nurse said that I must have very good genes. But I don't think that's it. My mom and sister are both on meds for high blood pressure and m... Read more
SP Health News: The Longer You Sit, the Shorter Your Life Span
Sunday, July 25, 2010      15 comments

Day before yesterday I wrote about what I am doing right now, standing up to blog and otherwise participate in SparkPeople. Some SparkFriends wondered what motivated me to do that. Well, I had just read the, "The Longer You Sit, the Shorte... Read more
Personal Best - Elliptical
Saturday, July 24, 2010      9 comments

I really had a great workout today at the YMCA. I started with elliptical and I tried the interval selection for the first time. (Usually I do the manual, cardio, or weight loss program selection.) The interval program varies from resistance of ... Read more
A Different Perspective
Friday, July 23, 2010      13 comments

I doubt you can tell, but there is something different about this blog than any other I've ever written. I am putting into practice something I've read about and makes sense to me. Perhaps you have been reading, too, about desks now available th... Read more
Lunch Dilemma
Thursday, July 22, 2010      13 comments

Starting Monday August 2nd, I'll be increasing my work hours and changing officially from a consultant to an employee. The nonprofit agency I work for does a lot of good and I'm proud to be associated with it. My thought today, though, is about ... Read more
Another SparkPeople Feature I Just Found
Wednesday, July 21, 2010      11 comments

I was considering resetting the SparkPeople articles because I was having trouble finding articles I hadn't read. But, I knew I had not read them all and I wanted to find the ones I hadn't read. Today I found out how. Go to the Healthy Lif... Read more
An Older Woman's Wonders
Tuesday, July 20, 2010      8 comments

It has crossed my mind a time or two, so maybe I'll just put it out here and see what my SparkFriends have to say. It seems to me that my body is responding to my attempts to build muscle far better than at any time in the past. Do you think thi... Read more
Blowing My Own Horn
Sunday, July 18, 2010      18 comments

I just found a new award on my SparkPage. Celebrate! Celebrate! No modesty here, I'm going to blow my own horn -- just strut and crow -- border on being obnoxious. For the first time, I received a Trivia Leader award for June 2010. I just love a... Read more
"How Long Are You Going to Do This?"
Saturday, July 17, 2010      16 comments

On my recent vacation a relative with a history of yoyo dieting similar to mine (until I met SparkPeople) asked me, "How long are you going to do this?" She was talking about what she perceived as my diet. I assured her my new lifestyle is forev... Read more
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
Tuesday, June 29, 2010      11 comments

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
