What I Learned from the Past 3 Days of Crash and Burn

Monday, August 10, 2009      6 comments

Okay, the pity party is over and I have learned as much from these past three days of "failure" as I have from my 9 months since starting a great, healthy eating program. As many of my sparkfriends who responded to my "I'm in trouble" blog remi... Read more

Sliding Down the Slippery Slope Pretty Fast & Rebelling Against Who Knows What?

Sunday, August 09, 2009      13 comments

After 9 months of dedicated hard work, I've spent the last three days totally rebelling. I don't know exactly what my problem is, but I do know this... I may or may not make it back on-track. I've not dealt effectively with my continuous stres... Read more

I'll Blame It on the Full Moon

Saturday, August 08, 2009      4 comments

These past two days, I've fallen off the wagon and not cared. First time since I started last October. Just wild abandon. Everything just came to a head (including crime activity on my street with 4 police cars and a helicopter overhead), but... Read more

Tough Love in the Last Car of the Roller Coaster

Friday, August 07, 2009      5 comments

Okay, after non-stop bumps in the road for a longgggg time, and doing everything I can to get over it all, sometimes I just have to treat myself like a kid and use tough love. I've been in this last car (the one that is said to feel everything ... Read more

Is Food Tracking/Journaling A Forever Thing?

Thursday, August 06, 2009      8 comments

I need the advice of you advanced sparkies. After 9 months of daily food tracking, I'm wondering if it ends when you reach goal. Or do you do this for the rest of your life? Kinda tired of it, although I know that it is one of the tools that ... Read more

Giving Up Caffeine-A Never Ending Battle

Wednesday, August 05, 2009      11 comments

Even though I don't drink a lot of coffee (less than one full mug a day), it still makes me feel yucky. I've succeeded at quitting many times, only to start again with the gateway "drug" of decaf and then work my way into regular. The thing is... Read more

Thanks to All My Sparkfriends

Tuesday, August 04, 2009      2 comments

I want to give a shout-out to all of those who responded yesterday to my blog regarding scale challenges. In fact, throughout my entire 6 months on SP, the people here have been an amazing support system. I just wanted to let you know that you... Read more

Excitement Extinguished - Going to Throw This Dang Scale Away

Monday, August 03, 2009      13 comments

Honestly, I think the biggest favor I can do for myself is to get rid of this scale. I've written about this good one I got in February, but it can't seem to weigh accurately. You can step on it 8 times and get 5 different numbers. Which is w... Read more

Less Blubber to Pinch Now

Sunday, August 02, 2009      5 comments

Every so often I do the blubber pinch test on myself. Not only do I get a realistic assessment of how much is left, but I feel that doing this might make the remaining jelly-like substance get a head start in disappearing. In other words, it m... Read more

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
