8 Months on SP-Thank you, SparkGuy!
I celebrated today by sending Chris, the Sparkguy, a thank you goodie. And I try to give back by buying SP items when I can, and spreading the SP when I go out by wearing my SP shirt. I really appreciate all that this site has done for me in h... Read more
Trampoline Jumping -Then and Now
A few months ago, I got a mini-trampoline. I'd had one in the past that I enjoyed so much, that I thought I'd reproduce the experience. Had to smile yesterday as I finally got on it. As I jumped, parts of my body bounced to a different rhythm... Read more
Coming Up on My 1-Year Anniversary (almost) of Healthy Eating/Lifestyle Change-Reflection #1
Okay, so it's not October 13 yet. But the way this year is evaporating, it'll be here in no time. I used Columbus Day '08 to embark on my new adventure as Columbus did - what has been a year of good (great) eating, more exercise, and learning... Read more
Anyone Else Having Trouble Getting SP points?
This is frustrating. Some categories require 2-4 clicks before the points register. Others do not give me points at all. This has gone on for a few weeks now. Anyone else having trouble with this?... Read more
Done Whining. Back on the Horse for the Victory Ride.
I'm not normally a whiner, but wow, that's all I've done lately. Yesterday, after asking for support, I received so many great reminders, good advice, and kind support. Something snapped (in a good way) inside my head and I just got sick of my... Read more
Bad Attitude Leads to Terrible Talk Leads to Falling Off for Good?
I haven't fallen off the wagon. Still eating healthy despite this current bad attitude. But I have to admit that I am right on the edge. It's like I'm some sort of big immature child who is rebelling against all of the people I'm losing in my... Read more
Commitment at an All-time Low
Have to admit that I'm in the slump area again. Got on the scale yesterday, after a terrible August, and am pretty disgusted. I had a perfect record for 10 months and blew it in the 11th month. Will have to get back on the proverbial horse an... Read more
Life's Trivialities Compared to Life & Death Issues
I was so absorbed with having my weigh-in after a really bad month in August. I'm ready to throw that darn scale away as it's really ridiculous to put so much importance on numbers. Especially when more bad news came in today that another aunt... Read more
"Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" (from Spamalot)
Never a Monty Python fan, but the show came to town and one of my Spfriends let me know it's a terrific show. I got a great deal on the ticket. Well, honestly, I'm still smiling. Great music, great sets and costumes. Wonderful energy. Absur... Read more
Day of Wreckening (sic) - Tomorrow's Weigh-In
I may even delay it until Tuesday, that's how much I'm dreading facing reality. To make a long story short, I've not weighed for a few weeks due to a very bad month of August. After 11 months eating healthier, I backslid more than I'd thought ... Read more
A Lifestyle Change, But Also a Diet for Me
I've never had to worry about weight until about four years ago. I was the person who could eat any quantity of food at any time of the day and not gain a pound. Then, tons of things happened... hormonal changes, mega-stress, less activity as I... Read more
Eat Right, Exercise Regularly, Die Anyway
The other day, I read this quote and it reminded me of my favorite uncle who smoked all of his life. He said that we're going to die of something, so why not pick your poison - his rationalization for continuing to smoke.
I smiled to read ... Read more
Look 16 years Older? Yet feel 13 years younger?
A recent article on SP talked about how extra weight ages us by about 16 years. Wow! Then I read in the latest issues of Women's World, that most people feel 13 years younger than their actual age. Whew, that's quite a fractured self-image to... Read more
RENEWING MY VOWS ON 9/9/09 AT 9:09 AM & PM (WEIGHT LOSS VOWS, THAT IS!)
It's time to renew my weight loss vows and recommit to my health and progress. What better time to do so than on a day that is a unique blend of "9's?" (smiling) I've slid pretty far down this past month, in many ways, but I am ready to kick m... Read more
Yikes! Sometimes This Blog Candor Can Hurt! Another Start of a Bad Habit?
Whew, two in a row with the same theme...slipsliding away? Or just giving myself a little break from all this constant thinking about food and what to do and what not to do. I mean, it gets old. (smiling) Okay, I started this oh-so-much-fun ... Read more
