Natalie and I have played and played and played with bubbles. I thought we knew everything there is to know about bubbles. But I just find out something that makes it even more fun and active. Wet your hand and you can catch a bubble right in yo... Read more
Reason One SparkPeople Helped Me Through Strength Training
Thursday, May 17, 2012      11 comments

Today I'm a little sore from my SparkPeople Intermediate Runner's Workout I started almost two weeks ago. Guess I must have gone lower on those walking lunges or deeper on the squats. It's hard to decide if that soreness feels good or not; defin... Read more

Just when I thought everything was just about back to normal following my son-in-law's car wreck, my husband had to have an emergency appendectomy. I actually was dressed and leaving to go to the gym for my Saturday workout, which is usually my ... Read more

So glad my son-in-law will be okay. Since his car wreck on Wednesday, he can't drive and doesn't have a car to drive anyway. Now he can be alone, but yesterday and the day before he wasn't suppose to, so I got to see a lot of him. I've spent mo... Read more
Always Something to Celebrate in Spark Land!!
Wednesday, May 09, 2012      10 comments

Just earned level 19 with 80,000+ SparkPoints. At times I have even commented that the points seem kind of pointless, but it is good to have them to give goodies and just to have positive things to celebrate. Thanks, SparkPeople. Had a gre... Read more
New Percentage

Today, after I answered the 3 SP trivia questions as usual, I read something I have never read before, "you have answered 2409 of 2690 questions correctly, 90% correct". It had been at 89% for probably more than a year. Admittedly, sometim... Read more
Guilty Motivations
Monday, May 07, 2012      9 comments

I do find the positive advantages of living a healthy, fit life more motivating than avoiding the trials and tribulations of obesity. However, just over a week ago I had the chance to see and interact with many relatives I don't see on a regular... Read more
Not Too Sore
Sunday, May 06, 2012      7 comments

Glad to report I'm not too sore from the new workout I started yesterday. I really have to bend and stretch to even find any soreness. I did 7 of the 8 Intermediate Runners Workout exercises, but I swapped the Back Extension on the Ball for Back... Read more

I did it! I finally changed my ticker to no longer show weight loss but to show number of weeks of weight maintenance. That is simply a more significant accomplishment to track and celebrate now. It was hard to give up that ticker showing t... Read more
Going for the HO!!

Sometimes it just seems repetitive. Plan. Eat. Track. Eat. Track. Exercise. Track. Eat Track. Plan. Eat. Track. Eat. Track. Exercise. Track. Eat. Track. Plan -- and do it all over again. And over again. How much of this can I make habit and... Read more

Thanks, SparkFriends. I appreciate all of you who suggested a shopping trip for my fading wardrobe. I'm going to set some goals and reward myself with some clothes. That will help. I appreciated ONEKIDSMOM's observation that it takes about ... Read more
The Thrill Fading?
Saturday, April 28, 2012      14 comments

There was a time when everything in my closet was new. After all, when you lose 80+ pounds you have to buy new clothes -- from PJ's to stockings, from casual clothes to dressy, even the watch band and the socks, all the old had to go. Now ... Read more
It's Sinking In
Friday, April 27, 2012      9 comments

Losing over 80 pounds has been exciting!! I was overweight more than 50 of my 62 years. Now it's been over 3 years since I achieved a healthy BMI and two full years since I got near the weight I've wanted to be since I was a teen. For the past 3... Read more
