38 Degrees in San Diego this Morning!!!!

Tuesday, January 15, 2013      20 comments

Yikes! It might as well be 0 degrees - I'm absolutely freezing, although it does warm up as the sun comes up. Wishing all a wonderful day.... Read more

Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide Curiosity

Monday, January 14, 2013      16 comments

I've read about this for years and wonder if anyone else has, or even tried it. There are supposedly some health benefits to using a few drops in water daily. Still considering getting a Fitbit, but not really sure I'd use it and really ... Read more

Four years ago, when I set out on this adventure and set this goal, it seemed like the impossible dream. It was the first time in my life that I had to deal with weight and I stayed at a plateau for the first three years after losing 34 lbs. T... Read more

Into the new set of next lower numbers, and the first lb of the "new" year gone, yes, I'm excited! Have a good weekend.... Read more

This is crazy, I know. I'm 5 lbs away from my goal weight and already feeling disappointed. Why? My goal weight is what I set for myself based on how I feel I look best. It is not the number on the charts of what I "should" weigh. I know, I... Read more

The ER Reminder

Thursday, January 10, 2013      19 comments

As though I need a reminder when I'm a regular member of SP, the ultimate reinforcer, my recent visit to the emergency room shook me awake further. I brought someone into the ER recently and, as a helper, was able to sit there while waiti... Read more

Banishing (almost) the Scale

Wednesday, January 09, 2013      12 comments

I never even owned a scale in my life until four years ago, when I embarked on this weight loss adventure. I'd never gained weight and never even thought about it; thus, no need for a scale. Okay, I bought a scale in October 2009. The sca... Read more

13 is My Lucky Number

Tuesday, January 08, 2013      12 comments

So I feel like this year will be a good one. Relative to the past 5, anything will be better! (smiling) Seriously, I don't have "lucky" numbers, but I DO like Friday the 13th. Feel a good vibe with that number. I believe we make our own ... Read more

I started this healthy adventure on my own four years ago in October, but found SP by accident in January a few months later. These four years have been full of major bumps in the road for me, but logging into this site has helped me reinfo... Read more

Farmaggedon - Documentary

Sunday, January 06, 2013      13 comments

Last week, a sparkfriend blogged about the documentary "Hungry for Change" which is available on Netflix. I watched that and it was another helpful film (like Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead). I noticed "Farmeggedon" while searching for the other on... Read more

Good Riddance to the Holidays

Tuesday, January 01, 2013      18 comments

Not into traditional holidays. Lots of reasons. Had a good time of it, but happy they are done. Wayyyyy too superficial for me. Best to all in 2013.... Read more

2012 Wrap-Up

Saturday, December 29, 2012      17 comments

I haven't been blogging much lately. Just nothing to say right now. Overall, 2012 was, well, 2012. More losses and challenges, but that's just the way life is sometimes. My 11 lb loss over November and December has been a major victo... Read more

December 21st - The End?

Sunday, December 16, 2012      18 comments

Just curious if there's anyone who thinks this is true. Wishing all a happy day.... Read more

Tears Over the Connecticut School Shootings

Friday, December 14, 2012      19 comments

It seems a daily horror now - mass shootings. I am so very sad over today's news and the little children who were shot and killed (as well as the adults, of course). I will refrain from expressing views on society. Words fail me.... Read more

Slept Through the 6.4 Earthquake!

Friday, December 14, 2012      14 comments

I have never gotten used to how scary earthquakes are since moving to southern California many years ago. I know that every geographic area has its own weather nightmarish potential, but earthquakes are pretty unique. There is no warning and t... Read more
