This morning as I was selecting something from my closet to wear to work I was thinking. There is not one thing in my closet that is too tight -- not one thing that I would be embarrassed to wear due to my size or shape. I can say that sin... Read more

I received an interesting SparkMail from a newbie asking me how I got started exercising. She asked if I truly am a "couch potato turned jock". It made me stop to think. I had many couch potato years. There were whole years I didn't even try to... 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
