My Lucky Day

Friday, August 13, 2010      6 comments

Friday the 13th is usually my lucky day. I think we make our own luck, to a certain extent. Guess I should go buy a lottery ticket and go to a casino. Nope, my idea of good luck is the good health I enjoy and the love of family and friends... Read more

The Journey Stopped Being Fun about A Year Ago

Thursday, August 12, 2010      8 comments

Yes, SP site is fun. Nice people, reinforcement of good habits, etc. However, this dratted plateau has gone on forever, and I've gotten advice out of the kazoo (ouch!), which I've tried and tried. My body does not want to part with any mo... Read more

Last Saturday, I started an extreme one-week experiment that I'll be writing about soon. Part of this one-week has entailed upping my water intake to 16 glasses (8 oz) per day. Yikes! The point of this is to feel fuller and, thus, less ... Read more

The Scale Game I Play (without intending to)

Tuesday, August 10, 2010      9 comments

For someone who never weighed herself until two years ago (I didn't need to most of my life), I now own two "good" scales. Neither agrees with the other, so I've stored the one that scores my weight higher. It must be way off. (smiling) A... Read more

Me? A SP Motivator? Thanks To All Who Voted!

Wednesday, August 04, 2010      13 comments

When the email came in announcing I'd been voted as a motivator, I honestly had to read it a few times before I could figure out that they'd not sent it to the wrong person by mistake! (smiling) Thanks to all who voted for me. During ve... Read more

Okay, sure, I know better. Ignorance of the law is no excuse for breaking it, so they say. Same with labels and educating myself on contents of things I imbibe. Specifically, I had 95 days of no caffeine under my belt when I suddenly reali... Read more

Indulge My Taste Buds?

Sunday, August 01, 2010      7 comments

I logged onto the SP site early this morning and the first banner ad that greeted me was for one of San Diego County's casino's award-winning buffets. Now, that is just what I need - to feast on the buffet that I visited frequently before start... Read more

Saturday, July 24, 2010      11 comments

First of all, I can see the value of blogging since I used to do it daily but haven't been regular for awhile (blogging. otherwise, very regular, thank you!) It really provides a focus as to what the issues are and anchors me to reality. Real... Read more

HCG? Anyone Have Any Personal Experience with It?

Thursday, July 22, 2010      6 comments

I've been researching HCG, and wonder if any sparkers have had personal experience they can provide. I haven't been blogging lately. Been tidal waved by sadness with the loss of my cousin who was like a sister to me. After a two-year ba... Read more

Shutting out Sugar from My Life - Begone Satan! (smiling)

Monday, July 05, 2010      11 comments

Sick and tired of dealing with sugar. It's been my nemesis. I've dealt with caffeine, and now I am determined to rid myself of the evil beast, sugar, once and for all. I won't eliminate it from foods that already contain a small amount, b... Read more

Monday, June 28, 2010      8 comments

Honestly, I never dreamt that my trips to the SD Fair and non-participation in junk food would culminate in a blog that received oodles of responses. (smiling) Thank you to all who responded. It gave me the opportunity to read about your o... Read more

"You Ain't No Fun Since I Quit Drinking"

Tuesday, June 22, 2010      11 comments

Not sure who sings that line in the country and western song, but it sure applied to me today. I heard that song in my head all day as I battled a HUGE jones to drink coffee after 56 days of none. With my good angel on one shoulder, and my... Read more
