Can't Believe My Eyes - It's Actually Raining! (After 4 year drought)

Saturday, November 28, 2009      10 comments

Well, it's not pouring, but any rain is good. I looked outside and hardly recognized why it was wet on the ground. Can't even remember when it rained last. San Diego is in a very bad drought with water rationing, so I hope this is the start t... Read more

Glad It's Over

Friday, November 27, 2009      11 comments

Suffice it to say, I'll delay weigh-in day a couple of weeks. Yes, I know better. Yes, today was an eating bust. No, I'm not sorry. I guess I'd better leave it at that.... Read more

Whatever you are doing today, wherever you're at, and whomever you're with - have a wondeful, fun day full of laughter and joy. If you don't exactly meet your goals, at least just enjoy yourself with no remorse. Shouting out to all of my Spark... Read more

Wednesday, November 25, 2009      6 comments

... is that I feel as though I've already had it. Now I don't even care. Isn't life strange? (smiling) Or maybe it's just me! In any case, who cares? That's what makes this journey so much fun. Happy Thanksgiving.... Read more

Exercising More, Managing My Growing Appetite

Tuesday, November 24, 2009      7 comments

Just when I have gotten some aspects under control, here comes another challenge. (smiling) Exercising more makes me hungrier. It's that simple. And sticking to healthier foods is a smart choice, but I sometimes feel that all this hard work e... Read more

I'm Dreaming of the (Entire) Pumpkin Pie

Monday, November 23, 2009      10 comments

See, this is one of the things that separate me from "normal" (yes, what is NORMAL?) people. At some point, I'll be near a pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving. And instead of allowing myself one piece, I'm thinking that I can have the entire thing. A... Read more

Thanksgiving is A State of Mind, Not Just One Day A Year

Sunday, November 22, 2009      3 comments

I'm not a traditionalist. Sometimes I celebrate a designated holiday, and sometimes I just create my own very different day. However, I believe that every day's a holiday. No, I'm not Mary Poppins. But I learned very early in life that toda... Read more

10 Month Spark Anniversary

Saturday, November 21, 2009      10 comments

It's hard to believe that these 10 months since joining Sparkpeople have flown by so quickly. Each month, I usually lament that I have not been able to lose the weight as quickly as I thought. However, here are some of the things I have succee... Read more

Kicking Salt to the Curb - Day 1

Friday, November 20, 2009      8 comments

My Battle with Caffeine

Thursday, November 19, 2009      7 comments

This is my fourth week of no coffee, and I gave in this morning and made a very small pot. Filled my little mug to half, added a tiny bit of non-fat milk and sugar. Took a few sips and hated it. Realized that I've been jonesing for the illusi... Read more

Exercising Harder and Eating Right

Wednesday, November 18, 2009      9 comments

But still not moving downward the way most bodies would be. So I think I'm going to lighten up on the exercise. I'll keep changing it up and trying to get this loss going a bit faster. As many of you know, my engine has been stalled out for q... Read more

Just a short note to say how thrilled I am that I am FINALLY done with the forever plateau I've been on. It's so nice to see my hard work starting to pay off! Hooray, Hooray!... Read more

Marshalls. Sparkfriends. Weigh-in Day. Harry & William.

Monday, November 16, 2009      7 comments

What would I do without Marshalls or Ross stores? I've gone down three pant sizes since last October, so where else can I get a $40.00 pair of pants for $10? (one pair was $7!)(not irregulars, and name brand) And Playtex bras for $4.50 each? ... Read more

Carrots & Celery. Eggs & Cheese. Jonesing for Coffee after 3rd Week. Weighin on Monday.

Sunday, November 15, 2009      16 comments

Sometimes the tips I read are so simple, and I read them and wonder why I never did them before. For example. I totally love my organic tortilla chips with hummus (from a store called Fresh & Easy). However, these do add up even when I keep... Read more

Saturday, November 14, 2009      11 comments

I have a good friend who's watched my progress over the past year and been very supportive. He recently bought a bike and we rode together for the first time this morning on a beautiful day in San Diego. He is starting to talk about eating bet... Read more
