Comical Fitbit Thoughts

Wednesday, January 30, 2013      22 comments

So here I am in, like, the 4th day of using this cool new Fitbit. And I caught myself with some thoughts that, if left unattended, could be absurd and ridiculous. 1. I forgot to put my Fitbit on, so there's no sense walking since it won't... Read more

"You've gotta try Nutella," she said.

Tuesday, January 29, 2013      24 comments

I walked into my fave little grocery store (fresh and easy) to find strawberries on sale. My store friend (you know how you make friends by shopping regularly at a place) grabbed my arm and excitedly advised, "oooooh, you've just gotta try Nute... Read more

Enjoying the New Fitbit

Monday, January 28, 2013      19 comments

Lest I mislead you with my last blog about being confused about my first day of Fitbit, let me clarify. As a non-tech person, it is VERY easy to set up. However, I just had a couple more "steps" to do in the set-up phase that I had missed. No... Read more

Confused after 1st Fitbit Day

Sunday, January 27, 2013      15 comments

What was disappointing was that, upon checking the Fitbit site and having used the dongle, only calories showed up. Not number of steps or miles. Why? I don't know. I was looking forward to a grand total. It has already reset, so I can'... Read more

I received my new pink Fitbit Zip late yesterday afternoon. Easy to set up, I was surprised at how small it is, yet how much it can calculate! Even with the few hours I had it on in the house, it was amazing how many steps I took! Too bad it ... Read more

Changes During My Time w/ SP

Friday, January 25, 2013      18 comments

I tracked my package and Fitbit is due to arrive today. So, if I can set it up tonight, I'll start using it tomorrow. Usually my mail arrives late afternoon. Since this is my SP anniversary week, I've pondered what has changed over these ... Read more

Belt Caper Irony & Misc. Thoughts

Thursday, January 24, 2013      11 comments

Before 6 years ago, I had the luxury of never thinking about food and weight gain. I had years of collections of belts - all kinds, styles, etc. A belt diva. During this past 6 years, I gave them all away with other things to charity and figu... Read more

This Week Is The Official 4-Year Sparkversary

Wednesday, January 23, 2013      22 comments

Can't believe it's been 4 years since accidentally stumbling upon this site! WOW! (p.s. I just went to the page that allows you to add Spversary icons - they only go up to 3!)... Read more

Why I Caved & Ordered Fitbit

Tuesday, January 22, 2013      25 comments

I don't jump on bandwagons, so I took my time and heavily weighed whether I'd really use the hefty-priced Fitbit. Honestly, I walk a lot. And I've always wondered what it translates to in miles and calories burned. I want to "step" it up, so ... Read more

I walked into the room during the very last few sentences of a radio interview with an author who just wrote a weight loss book. He said that he'd heard many warnings not to weigh daily as it is too frustrating. But he felt the opposite to be ... Read more

Convictions of Overweight Women

Thursday, January 17, 2013      19 comments

On the radio, there were a few reports about how overweight women who are being judged by a jury in court are (oftentimes) perceived to be guilty with their excess weight seen as impulse control and, therefore, they probably did the crime. Not ... Read more

Vitamins Added to GS Cookies!

Wednesday, January 16, 2013      14 comments

After reading that girl scout cookies are now going to contain added vitamins, I smiled wryly and thought that perhaps companies will now add vitamins to cigarettes and alcohol. Crazy crazy crazy world. Wishing all a happy day.... Read more

38 Degrees in San Diego this Morning!!!!

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
