Effective Anti-All-or-Nothing Image

Wednesday, December 23, 2009      7 comments

My Weight Watcher leader came into the room uncharacteristically a minute or two late, wearing an apron, chef's hat, and scurrying with 3 precariously held eggs in her hands. One egg fell and splattered. She looked down and said, "I just can't d... Read more

Overcoming All-Or-Nothing Thinking

Tuesday, December 22, 2009      2 comments

Think of managing our weight like playing a football game. A fumble isn't part of the game plan, but it is part of the game. Shake it off!... Read more

What Clicked?

Monday, December 21, 2009      6 comments

Today, as I was donating clothes that are way too big for me, a woman who has known me and my weight struggles for a long time asked, "What clicked for you this time? How did you finally lose all the weight?" I told her I'd have to think ab... Read more

Cool Weather Challenges

Sunday, December 20, 2009      4 comments

Since I started SparkPeople in October ( signed up in September, but didn't start using until Oct), I've not had any trouble drinking 8 glasses of water per day. But suddenly, the weather is cool. Today I've been busy all day, working to sort C... Read more

It Really Doesn't Matter

Saturday, December 19, 2009      6 comments

"That's a beautiful blouse," I overheard an attractive woman say to a younger one who must have been her daughter. She picked the blouse up and held it in front of her. "There's no way!" she said with disgust, almost flinging the blouse b... Read more

I Want to Streak!

Friday, December 18, 2009      5 comments

No, I'm not talking about running naked across a football field, I'm talking about achieving goals I set on SparkPeople. Oh, I'm doing fine on exercise, drinking water, eating fiber, taking a daily vitamin pill, walking, drinking milk, but I'm h... Read more

Don't Panic

Thursday, December 17, 2009      7 comments

Don't panic -- track! I knew I had overeatten on Monday eve. Because I tracked I knew it was about 700 calories over and I would have about 1/4 pound to lose. But Tuesday morning I was up more than 3 pounds. I figured it was sodium. Wasn't too w... Read more

Hitting the Ole Trail

Wednesday, December 16, 2009      4 comments

Today I ventured across the highway with my new bike on my new bike rack attached to the trunk of my car. I wasn't sure I could do it, but I had to try. I had no trouble lifting and securing the bike, driving with it, parking, and getting it dow... Read more

Exercising Restraint

Tuesday, December 15, 2009      4 comments

This morning, while watching my dear granddaughter Natalie, I decided to get caught up with my SparkPeople strength training. Natalie was playing happily with PlayDough and I thought I could get in a set between checking on her. Well, my f... Read more

Gaining Confidence

Monday, December 14, 2009      6 comments

My mom just left after a 10 day trip from Tucson to our home in central Florida. I cooked a lot, ate out a lot, had less time than usual for exercise, and my food tracking was spotty -- the worst tracking I've done in over a year. Yet, this morn... Read more

Great Present!

Sunday, December 13, 2009      3 comments

Wow have I been blessed! My mom gave me a present I really like - a new bicycle. It's "flat foot" technology - I can stay on the seat at the stop signs with my feet on the ground - and its "pedal forward" design is really comfy. I did a couple m... Read more

Mom's Here

Saturday, December 05, 2009      8 comments

My mom is visiting from Tucson. That is wonderful. I don't get to see here near as often as I'd like. It's a long way from Tucson to central Florida. I know, though, that there will be challenges over the next 10 days. It may be hard to ge... Read more

Sweet Treat

Thursday, December 03, 2009      3 comments

I was just really wanting something sweet, but healthy. I took 9 oz. of a huge sweet potato and microwaved it. I cracked 3 walnuts and put the pieces on the soft, warm orange flesh. I topped it with 1/8 cup Smucker's Breakfast Syrup sugar free... Read more

Waist or Waste?

Tuesday, December 01, 2009      6 comments

When I was growing up, we'd save any leftover food. But almost every meal there was at least one thing that there was just a "dibby-dab" left. Mom would eat it or talk one of us into eating it so she didn't have to store it. Throwing it out was ... Read more

Celebrating in Threes

Monday, November 30, 2009      3 comments

1. Hurricane season is over! 2. Yesterday was cool outside so I grabbed a jacket out of the closet. A year ago I couldn't even get that jacket around me. Now it is definitely too big! 3. And best of all, after 30 days of SparkPeople strengt... Read more
