Fitness Workshop

Saturday, November 13, 2010      7 comments

I signed up for a workshop on Tuesday eve about getting the most out of your workout. It is a free event, or I should say, included in YMCA membership. I don't know for sure that it will apply to a 61 year old woman, but I plan to go and find ou... Read more

I joined a challenge on another web site. I'm keeping track of the days that I eat all my food "with dignity". If I eat standing up or mindlessly, I start over. If I lose control or overeat to the point I don't feel good about it, I start over. ... Read more

She Called Me Her Inspiration!

Today I went to a training for my agency. The head presenter looked great; she had obviously lost a lot of weight. Afterwards, I told her how good she looks. She said she's lost 40 pounds and achieved a healthy BMI. Then she warmed my heart. She... Read more

We Made It!!

Thanks for the support, SparkFriends. Yesterday went pretty well. The baby ate for me and burped for me and didn't slosh all of it back up. I almost lost my patience one time with the older one when she closed the bedroom door and would not reop... Read more

The Key to It All

Monday, November 08, 2010      12 comments

Some days I find it really difficult to stay within my calorie range. Other days it is not so hard. Yesterday was an easier day and today was not too bad, either. I've said it before, but mean it more than ever. If I do the best I can each... Read more

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within. - Elizabeth Kubler-Ross... Read more

Joyful Experience

I really enjoyed a shopping trip today. I had not been shopping for a couple months. Today I bought a great new outfit, after trying on lots of clothes. I've missed regular shopping. I used to shop weekly after my Weight Watcher Saturday weigh i... Read more

Path May Become Apparent

Friday, November 05, 2010      10 comments

Last Friday I was celebrating that I still feel thrilled about my weight loss. Yesterday I reported I wasn't feeling it so much. Maybe now I know why. This morning I woke up with a cold. I'm trying to fight it off and maybe it won't settle ... Read more

The Thrill is Not Gone

Thursday, November 04, 2010      12 comments

Perhaps I'm feeling a little down right now because I've been so in a state of being thrilled with my weight loss that I can't stay that excited about it forever. The thrill is not gone, but it is a bit diminished. I've got to think about ... Read more

My own program is my first priority. I love it when I can give good advice to a fellow Sparker. I like sharing Secrets to Success. Welcoming new members is fun and feels good. Reading blogs and giving supportive comments to other members is oft... Read more

No Excuse

Even though I really enjoyed my visit with my mom two weeks ago, I had a realization. When I saw how much butter she used to cook chopped broccoli, I was shocked. Honestly it might have been equal amounts. She also was very heavy on the salt sh... Read more

I sewed up a hole where the seam had split and spot cleaned the icee out of it. Although the Fall Festival this afternoon took a toll on Natalie's Alice in Wonderland costume, when I was done, it was good as new. Such an honor to be the trusted ... Read more

Is That Me in the Mirror?

Friday, October 29, 2010      13 comments

Every morning I wake up and look in the mirror. There is still, even after about a year at BMI 20.2-21, a certain amount of surprise. It's not really that I expect to see me fat again, it is more like I don't have an image of myself right now t... Read more

Bragging Again

Thursday, October 28, 2010      11 comments

I just answered trivia questions 67, 68, and 69 for the month. I don't show up on the leaderboards because I was gone for a week and many, many people have answered more questions than I. However, this is the first month that on day 28 I am stil... Read more
