Liberating Discovery

Monday, August 30, 2010      14 comments

I discovered, quite by accident, that I need not worry so much with my hair. This weekend I went swimming. I didn't have the time to wash and style my hair the way I usually do. I didn't even have a hair dryer with me, nor my round brushes, nor ... Read more

Took Another Risk Today

Sunday, August 29, 2010      10 comments

I played trivia again today and I only got 3 out of 4. I did not know that 2/3 of people with arthritis exercise; I guessed it was only 1/4. BUT I still have 90%, 87 out of 97. Will I be brave enough to play tomorrow? I'll lose my monthly trophy... Read more

Risky Behavior

Saturday, August 28, 2010      15 comments

I enjoy playing the Spark Trivia game. I guess I started playing just to earn those 3 SparkPoints a day, but I'd play now even if there was no pay off. And now they've even upped the reward. I got a Trivia trophy in June and I liked that. In Jul... Read more

The One in the Shirt

Friday, August 27, 2010      14 comments

When I blogged about my shirt, several readers asked for a picture. A group of local team members met for a yummy potluck not too long ago at TBRANCH2's lovely home. I wore... Read more

Being My Own Best Friend

Thursday, August 26, 2010      13 comments

Next Wednesday or Thursday I'll blog about my weight. This week I'm not going to stress about the scale, but just focus on eating healthy and achieving at least a small calorie deficit. If it were my best friend in my situation, that is what I w... Read more

Fun Morning

Wednesday, August 25, 2010      7 comments

I had a fun morning. I went to speaker's training and the trainer had a video of two people giving presentations. One of the people was me from about 3 years ago. The trainers and class went on and on about how much weight I've lost! If I ... Read more

Okay, I Did It Again!

Tuesday, August 24, 2010      13 comments

This morning I weighed 125.8, a full .2 below my selected "happy weight" of 126. At 5'6", that is a BMI of 20 and it just feels like the right weight for me. The lowest weight I have been in the last 35 years is 125.6, about 6 weeks ago. The las... Read more

I changed my screen name yesterday, you know. If you ever want attention from your SparkFriends, change your name and send out a SparkMail. What a wonderful group of friends! I've had 100% positive response. Thank you, thank you. I am begi... Read more

Warning: Some Frustration Expressed Here

Saturday, August 21, 2010      20 comments

Thanks for all your support regarding my frazzled day. I think I proved to myself once more that letting it (stress) get to me just makes me less efficient and productive, as well as less likely to achieve my eating and activity goals. I'm... Read more

Too Focused and Frazzled

Friday, August 20, 2010      10 comments

Yesterday I had a 7:30am professional breakfast. A protégé of mine won a big award, Workforce Champion of the Year. She really deserves it. I am very proud of her. BUT I burned fewer calories than in any day since I seriously started SparkPeople... Read more

Changing It Up

Tuesday, August 17, 2010      14 comments

I told my hubby I was on the way to the gym, envisioning my usual elliptical or stationery bike workout and then hitting the weight machines. On the way there, I was just not excited about it. The day was so beautiful. The sky so blue. I decided... Read more

My Daughter Said This Would Make A Good Blog

Sunday, August 15, 2010      18 comments

Last weekend I weighed 6 pounds more than my happy weight, did not fit into all my clothes, and felt fat, bloated, and a little bit scared. I cut my calories back, lost water weight, feel good that now I'm less than a pound over, and determine... Read more

Team Walk and Progress

Saturday, August 14, 2010      9 comments

I really enjoyed our Polk County SparkTeam walk this morning at the old Lakeland mall. It was wonderfully air conditioned and very comfortable. I had Natalie in the stroller and out of the stroller. Cyndi, our leader, set a comfortable pac... Read more

Advice for New Members and for Myself, Too

Friday, August 13, 2010      23 comments

I was contacted by a new member (ARIANABLUE) and asked how I lost weight. She liked my response, so I thought I'd share it as part of a blog: ************************ You asked how I lost my weight. I lost 50 with Weight Watchers, eating ... Read more

Thank You, SparkFriends!

Thursday, August 12, 2010      13 comments

Yesterday 22 SparkFriends stopped by with kind words and support. Thank you, thank you. It means so much to me. There is so much wisdom and understanding here! In my real life there are many wonderful people, but not one who understands as well ... Read more
