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

WOW!

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

Shameless Reward Junkie!

Sunday, January 10, 2010      5 comments

I am without a doubt a shameless reward junkie! I carry around my Weight Watcher awards: my 10% (of total body weight lost) award, my 16 week Stay and Succeed Award, my 25 Pounds Lost award, my Goal Weight Star, and my Key to Lifetime. My 50 pou... Read more

RAYLINSTEPHENS on Page 39!

Saturday, January 09, 2010      5 comments

Here I am just reading along, amongst all the gems in The Spark, looking for things to apply to my life, when there it is! My SparkFriend, RAYLINSTEPHENS, quoted on page 39! And what she had to say about trusting SparkPeople and eating enough to... Read more

The Days of Punitive Dieting and Deprivation are Over!

Friday, January 08, 2010      5 comments

That phrase, "The Days of Punitive Dieting and Deprivation are Over", just keeps going through my head. I'll have to look it up in The Spark and see if I got it word for word, but I know I got the gist. It's not positive enough to be my aff... Read more
