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

I always thought it was okay to use "Lite Salt" because it contains so much less of what regular salt has. A lifelong saltaholic, I've really cut down over the past year since starting this healthy lifestyle change. But today is Day 1 of... Read more

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

When Friends Learn from My Healthier Lifestyle

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

One of the biggest challenges in this past year of healthy eating, has been breaking my night munching habit. I've tried every trick in the book, and it really doesn't matter if I include it in my calorie intake for the day. All my life, I've ... Read more

Computer Problems

Thursday, November 12, 2009      7 comments

My computer is slowly conking out. After doing everything possible to prolong it's life, it may last another day, week, or month. However, when it goes, that'll mean a temporary break with SP site. Sad, but true. Meanwhile, I'm working hard ... Read more

A Thank You to All Veterans on Veterans Day 11/11/09

Wednesday, November 11, 2009      7 comments

Just a short and sweet thank you to all of our veterans and their families' countless sacrifices. I have never forgotten and have always thanked when I met/meet up with someone who has served. Did this before it was the thing to do. You are ... Read more

A Book Worth Rereading That Will Change the Way I Eat Permanently

Tuesday, November 10, 2009      10 comments

I rarely reread a book, but will do so with Dr. Kessler's "The End to Overeating." Knowing how foods are engineered so that we actually become addicted to them and literally "can't eat just one" is eye-opening. Knowing that some of that went o... Read more

Exercising hard, eating right, and .... UP 4 LBS???? What's up with this?

Monday, November 09, 2009      13 comments

I thought I was off this forever plateau, having lost a lb last week. When I awoke this morning, I promised myself that I'd get on the scale for Monday's weigh-in and not let any number bother me. Since I've been exercising hard and eating rig... Read more
