This Past Week Has Been Off the Charts But Healthy Eating Has Saved Me

Saturday, August 01, 2009      4 comments

I've written previously about my cousin, who is like a sister to me, and dealing with her terminal illness. This week was hospitalization and each day brought worse news than the last. To add to my sadness, grief and stress, I am helplessly 3,... Read more

Plateau Gone, Scale Bummer, and Miscellaneous

Friday, July 31, 2009      3 comments

I am sooooooooooooooooo thrilled that that forever plateau seems to have left town. My body just didn't want to give up any more weight for the longest time. But I think that my Monday weigh-in day (I really try not to do daily, but I think I'... Read more

OMG-I've Got the Night Munchies FINALLY Under Control!!!`

Thursday, July 30, 2009      14 comments

This is nothing short of a miracle. After a lifetime of being able to eat anything, any amount, at any time without gaining a pound (until the past few years - yikes!), one of the bad habits of many I've had is night eating. That includes both... Read more

Spark Teams - How Many are Enough or Too Many?

Wednesday, July 29, 2009      11 comments

I used to belong to many teams, but then thought I should weed some out and have fewer. Did this in order to focus. But what do you think and how do you do this... lots of teams, or just a few that you work closely with to meet goals?... Read more

Anyone Else Have this Problem w/ The Message Boards?

Tuesday, July 28, 2009      5 comments

This has gone on for quite awhile, and only happens to my computer when I'm using the SP Message Board for over 10 clicks. Suddenly, it'll show about 20 blank pages/screens and lock up. It freezes my entire computer and I have to shut it down.... Read more

Reminding Myself That It's My Own Race

Monday, July 27, 2009      7 comments

This is a consistent theme with me, and one I really have to work on. I am thrilled when I read the accomplishments of others' weight loss, I truly am. But after the thrill wears off, I inevitably say (for example), "she lost 60 lbs in a year... Read more

New Exercise Equipment

Sunday, July 26, 2009      2 comments

Got myself a mini trampoline and a pedometer. Now all I have to do is take them out of the box and use them. Just read an article about why weight loss may not be working despite best efforts. One of their points is that some people need a bi... Read more

How Did this Big Piece of Chocolate Cake Get In My Fridge?

Saturday, July 25, 2009      5 comments

The other night, I opened my fridge and the sight of a luscious piece of chocolate cake hit me right between the eyes like a punch. I just stared at it in disbelief because I certainly didn't put it there. Turns out, a friend who'd come over (... Read more

Today's My 6-Month Sparkiversary-Celebrating All Week

Friday, July 24, 2009      4 comments

Today's the actual day - 6 months ago- that I found SP and logged on. However, I was so overwhelmed and confused by all of the information, that I didn't come back until a week later! (smiling) Almost didn't come back at all. That's why I smi... Read more

OMG! I Bought a Swimsuit!

Thursday, July 23, 2009      7 comments

Actually, I bought two since they were so cheap at Ross (Speedos for $11). It's the first time in the last few years since these drastic hormonal changes (and yes, overeating) brought on the weight that I've even thought of swimming. I want t... Read more

REFLECTING ON MY NEW, HEALTHIER HABITS AT ANNIVERSARY TIME

Wednesday, July 22, 2009      5 comments

Seems like these monthly sparkiversaries make my mind wander to all of the great changes this terrific website has reinforced. I came to SP six months ago, after three months of really good progress on my own. So, this new lifestyle change has... Read more

Calorie Counts Vary So Much That It's Confusing to Track

Tuesday, July 21, 2009      3 comments

Yes, I do go by the SP caloric info for food I eat, but I have to say that the product count, SP count, and other website counts are oftentimes sooooo far apart for the same item, that it's confusing. At times, I feel that I've added way to man... Read more

Putting My Fat Clothes Out Front for Today's Charity Pickup

Monday, July 20, 2009      5 comments

I've been in the process of weeding out the clothes that no longer fit. A couple of months ago, when I first started doing this, I was elated by the fact that I am now 3 sizes down from what I was last October. I'd immediately given away SOME ... Read more

Coming Up on 6-Month Sparkanniversary-Just Because I'm Discouraged Does not Mean That I'll Quit

Sunday, July 19, 2009      10 comments

I really do try to be as positive as possible on my blogs, although with the current state of dying friends and relatives, it's been difficult. In 5 days, it'll be my 6th month anniversary on SP. Okay, I'll give myself the benefit of the posit... Read more

Beating those Strong Food Associations

Saturday, July 18, 2009      4 comments

This morning, I had to get something fast, and went back to the grocery store I'd shopped at before starting my new eating lifestyle. As I entered the store, I could feel the automatic pull to all of the items I used to buy out of habit, and al... Read more
