Appointment Set

Wednesday, December 15, 2010      13 comments

I've got an appointment set up for Friday afternoon this week to meet with the head of the Wellness Division of the YMCA. He is qualified to do caliper body fat percentage testing and I'll do that unless he recommends something else. He is over ... Read more

Moving On Up!

Tuesday, December 14, 2010      8 comments

Today I moved up to a new personal best on both the chest press machine and the shoulder press machine. I made 2 sets of 12 at 55 pounds on each of them. I'm definitely getting stronger!... Read more

Black Leather Coat

Monday, December 13, 2010      10 comments

My mom bought a black leather coat with a fitted waist as motivation to lose weight. She never fit into it, so she gave it to my daughter when she was in high school. Last year I was excited to fit into it, even though it was a little snug. This... Read more

The Rip Cord

Sunday, December 12, 2010      9 comments

Well, I tried my treadmill workout with the safety cord attached today and it was frustrating. Three times the cord pulled out and stopped the treadmill abruptly. That is a jolt! It also means I lose all the data on my workout. However, I was us... Read more

The Hike

Saturday, December 11, 2010      10 comments

Enjoyed the hike at Mary Holland Park in Bartow this morning. It was foggy and cool, but once we got started not too bad. I had heard of geo caching before, but today I got to see it. People with hand held GPS devices searched for coordinates. T... Read more

Free Fruit

Friday, December 10, 2010      8 comments

I really took advantage of free fruit this week in more ways than one. I went and harvested a whole bunch of grapefruits from the tree at my daughter's house. She and her family don't like them, but to me they are absolutely delicious and so muc... Read more

Hey, I Think I've Got Something Here!

Thursday, December 09, 2010      10 comments

I just tried a new hot drink, RoBarr. It is roasted barley. It looks like coffee, but is naturally caffeine free and very low acid. Has a great taste, in my opinion. I've been looking for a satisfying hot drink I can enjoy without artifical swee... Read more

Still Glad I Worked Out This Morning

Wednesday, December 08, 2010      9 comments

I'm fighting that little negative voice that says, "See there. You are a klutz. You always were. It doesn't matter if you are 212 or 128 pounds, you will always be an awkward klutz." Go away detracting voice!! I know Grace is not my middle name... Read more

And the Award Goes To........

Monday, December 06, 2010      9 comments

If someone were handing me the Academy Award for Weight Maintenance I would thank my daughter who really pushed me to take the very first steps, thank Weight Watchers for enabling me to get to a healthy BMI, thank Leslie Sansone who got me off t... Read more

My Two Programs

Sunday, December 05, 2010      9 comments

I started my most recent healthy eating/weight loss journey with Weight Watchers on December 1, 2008. When I came to SparkPeople in November of 2009, I had already lost down to a healthy BMI of 25. Mostly I came to SparkPeople because the Weight... Read more

Personal Best (Warning: More Bragging!)

Saturday, December 04, 2010      11 comments

Yesterday I managed, in good form, to complete 2 sets of 15 reps at 220 pounds on the horizontal leg squat machine. WooHoo!! I started at the Y and on this machine at the end of February 2010. It was either 77 or 88 pounds that I started with an... Read more

Cooler Weather Brings an Unexpected Challenge

Friday, December 03, 2010      11 comments

For months I have given hardly a thought to making the goal of drinking 8 glasses of water a day. When it is hot and when I am working out I just automatically drink far more water than that. But this week the temperature has plummeted. I ... Read more

I Know My Limits

Thursday, December 02, 2010      14 comments

I just read the DailySpark blog about Cherry Berry Oatmeal cookies. They look wonderful. However, I won't be making them this year. Despite the fact that I've kept off my 80 pound loss for more than a year now, I know I could not bake this ... Read more

Comfortable Acquaintances

Wednesday, December 01, 2010      8 comments

I've been thinking that I need to look for at least one good before picture. I sure enjoy reading other people's SparkPages and success stories, especially when they show dramatic before and after pictures. I have pictures of me 40 pounds overwe... Read more
