Bootcamp Review
Wednesday, January 27, 2010      10 comments

I've just completed Day 25 Spark Your Body Bootcamp workout. I expected it would be far more intense than it is. However, now that I think about it, I'm glad it was just the intensity it is. It did get me to do several exercises at a more advan... Read more
New Name Needed?
Monday, January 25, 2010      9 comments

I love it when my 2 (almost 3 now) year old granddaughter calls me what she named me, Old Mom. However, when other people call me that it seems silly. In fact, it seems negative. Should I change my screen name on SparkPeople? Should I come ... Read more
The Water Habit
Sunday, January 24, 2010      7 comments

I used to drink a lot of water. I had kidney stones in 1972 and 1992, and was told to drink lots of water. Weight Watchers used to encourage lots of water, too. Weight Watchers has now gone to 6 glasses of liquid per day. Doesn't have to be wate... Read more
Missing from The Spark?
Saturday, January 23, 2010      10 comments

I had misplaced my copy of The Spark, but fortunately I've found it. As I picked it up and looked at it, though, something struck me. The 60s and 70s and 80s are missing. Really the 50s are almost missing, too. All the success stories with their... Read more
The Power of the Positive
Thursday, January 21, 2010      4 comments

As I shared in an earlier blog, I was really frustrated with my goal of trying to get 8 hours sleep per night. I mean, I'm just not in total control of sleep. Sometimes I just couldn't sleep no matter how much I tried. In fact it seemed the hard... Read more
Fitness Suggestions Wanted
Wednesday, January 20, 2010      6 comments

I have enjoyed the Spark Your Body Bootcamp workouts. They are short enough that I hardly feel like I'm doing anything, but then my body has a touch of soreness and I know I did. Also, the bootcamp exercises have made me realize that my gen... Read more
Big Boned!
Tuesday, January 19, 2010      11 comments

At a Weight Watchers meeting earlier this month I sat by a woman who asked me many questions about my weight loss journey. I shared with her several of my favorite recipes, products, and ways to earn activity points. At one point she commented ... Read more

My daughter let me know yesterday that she is expecting our second grandchild probably in September. WOW!... Read more
Which Do You Want First - the Good News or the Bad?
Sunday, January 17, 2010      7 comments

The Bad News is that I'm just feeling kind of blue, blah, bleck. There's some conflict in my family that we just can't seem to get over and it is repetitively disheartening. The Good News is that for years I would have sought comfort in foo... Read more
Strong and Happy Streaking!
Saturday, January 16, 2010      3 comments

I just finished Day 14 of Spark Your Body Bootcamp. One of my good SparkFriends commented yesterday that she considered 13 days a streak! Okay. It's officially a streak now. One observation of today's workout is that SparkPeople strength tr... Read more
Am I Cheating?
Friday, January 15, 2010      6 comments

I try to get most of the SparkPoints available each day. And I want to do it the right way. I am very careful to correctly count my water and my cardio minutes. I carefully read articles I click on. If I add cardio and then delete it (say, I cl... Read more
Life at Goal Weight is Great, But it isn't Perfect
Thursday, January 14, 2010      3 comments

One reason I expect to be able to keep the weight off this time is that I am much more realistic. The first time I lost 60 pounds I was 16 years old. I was shocked to find out I'd still have to wait in lines, suffer bad hair days, and even do ho... Read more
Do These Pants Make Me Look Fat?
Wednesday, January 13, 2010      10 comments

I used to think that question was the definition of a shallow, vain person. Of course, for years it wasn't a question I could ask. No pants could make me look fat. I was fat. But now as I try to learn to dress this new body I find it can be diff... Read more
It Took Me 6 Days
Tuesday, January 12, 2010      10 comments

Well, I did it. I'm back to the bottom of my goal range (129-135). It took me 6 days after making a poor choice about the portion of chocolate candy I selected. I really do think I'm making progress. For years I would give up in despair wh... Read more
Dumped the Christmas Cookies!
Monday, January 11, 2010      6 comments

I took them out of the freezer, selected 4 of the best to keep, and then dumped the rest. Just really didn't want them hanging around. I feel very good about this choice.... Read more
