If I Ever Go Back On Sugar & Caffeine Again
Sunday, April 29, 2012      7 comments

My biggest erroneous thought that sabotages my success with staying away from things like sugar and caffeine is this... For example, I've got a long streak going on both of them. No cravings lately,so it's not about that. But I get in... Read more
Readjusting May Goal
Saturday, April 28, 2012      5 comments

I had an early start on my May goal, and was into day 8 of no cheese. But I realized yesterday that I am tired of eliminating things I enjoy from my life. Even though I'll cut way down on it, I'm not going to make that my May goal. There is v... Read more
"Woman On Sunlight Diet Dies"
Friday, April 27, 2012      11 comments

I shook my head to read this headline on the internet this morning about a woman who practiced "breatharianism" (or something like that). Nothing to eat but sunlight. She even spit out her own saliva. To what lengths do we go to lose weig... Read more
Learning from the Gorillas
Thursday, April 26, 2012      6 comments

In about an hour, I'm heading out to get groceries. As I continue to eliminate bad eating habits from my diet, I wonder what's left to eat. Raw only? The other day, I was watching a gorilla videocam and noticed how they eat the same thi... Read more
Big Discovery for Myself
Wednesday, April 25, 2012      4 comments

I have been on a super-stellar eating regimen for the past month and, although this weekly weigh-in gives me nothing at all but the same number as last week, I'm not going to let that get to me. What I've discovered is that the more I eat f... Read more

Recently, a sparker apologetically explained to me that she is afraid of clowns, thus not interacting with me here on SP. Apparently, fear of clowns is quite common. A list was recently read on the radio of the top 10 fears of most people ... Read more
The Lightness of Being
Saturday, April 21, 2012      6 comments

I feel lighter today. Despite whatever number comes up on the scale next week for my weigh-in, my body is showing signs of change and responding well to my healthier regimen. Feeling very optimistic that things are starting to head in the righ... Read more
Sunflower Beverage
Friday, April 20, 2012      6 comments

I found this unusual drink at my health-oriented grocery store and it was marked down enough to give it a try. It's not every day that one runs into a drink like this. It's 70 calories a cup,and tastes kinda like non-fat milk with a slightly n... Read more
Assessing April Goals & Setting One for May
Thursday, April 19, 2012      8 comments

My April goal has been a total success and a lot easier than I imagined it would be. After a lifelong habit of eating at night (any time of night and sometimes another meal), I've managed this 26 day streak of absolutely nothing at night. Thou... Read more

Wednesday, April 18, 2012      11 comments

WOOOOOOOHOOOOOO! 4 LBS DOWN! Must be a miracle! Got a new scale and I joked with the cashier yesterday that if it didn't give me the numbers I wanted, I'd bring it back for a refund. (smiling) After whining yesterday, guess what? 4 lbs d... Read more

Sunshine Makes Me Happy
Monday, April 16, 2012      6 comments

That's why I moved to a sunny city decades ago. I knew, even as a child, that sunshine had a direct effect on my well being. Cost of living is high, but the sun is shining brightly so who's complaining? Wishing all a good day.... Read more
Hula Hoop Update
Saturday, April 14, 2012      4 comments

Since my hoop arrived a couple of weeks ago, I've only had a few chances to use it as I've been preoccupied with this dang water main leak that they can't locate. (smiling) Now that it's rained, it's going to be awhile for the ground to dry and... Read more
2 Major Thought Breakthroughs - #2
Friday, April 13, 2012      4 comments

The other day I semi-whined in a blog about the scale indicating no loss after a week of amazing exercise and eating. During my daily walk that day, I realized that I had written in that blog "why bother?" when I know very well the many reasons... Read more
2 Major Thought Breakthroughs - #1
Thursday, April 12, 2012      6 comments

It's one thing to read a platitude or cliche and shake my head with that "so true" agreement, and quite another when it clicks and becomes reality for you. Having read that "the past doesn't equal the future" time and again, it rang true but ne... Read more
