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

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

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
