I am a person who has a lifelong appreciation for those who are serving and have served our country. My respect and admiration of the sacrifices that have been made run very deep. To all who have served and those who are now gone - you are che... Read more

Okay, I'm Over the Scale Scare

Saturday, May 23, 2009      2 comments

I freaked out a few days ago when, for the first time in 7 months, the scale went up instead of down. I was discouraged and disheartened. As always, my good sparkfriends delivered encouraging advice as we all have been there a time or two. We... Read more

Discouragement & A Turning Point - If I Allow it to Take Control

Friday, May 22, 2009      3 comments

Okay, I tried to let go of my freak-out over my first gain in 7 months - 1.5 lbs. I know rationally that I just need to let it go and not let the discouragement take over. I doubt I will allow it, but I have to admit that a step backward like ... Read more

Uh, Oh! I'm Headed in the Wrong Direction

Thursday, May 21, 2009      1 comments

How can it be that just a week ago, I was on Cloud 9 about being 3 sizes down, and today - for the first time in the 7 months I started this healthier lifestyle - I am UP 1.5 lbs? I understand one reason. My calorie count has crept up A BIT (o... Read more

4-Month Sparkpeople Anniversary

Wednesday, May 20, 2009      2 comments

In 5 days, it'll be four months since I found this great website. I catch myself before I go too far in chastising myself that I should be so much further along than I am now. Instead, I redirect my thoughts to all of the good that has come fr... Read more

Enjoying the Journey

Tuesday, May 19, 2009      0 comments

Well, I've always been a person who enjoyed the "getting there" process almost as much as the destination (sometimes more). And on this website, I get a lot of advice to enjoy the road to the goal. It's a little difficult to truly enjoy it in ... Read more

Getting A Little Cocky and Complacent

Sunday, May 17, 2009      4 comments

Yesterday was a rare day of rebellion. I was hungry. I didn't want to deal with calories, weight issues, or whatever. Didn't eat junky stuff, but did ingest more than usual. It was like I needed a vacation day from just thinking about all th... Read more

How People Treated Me When I was Chubby vs. Thin

Saturday, May 16, 2009      4 comments

I'd been thin and active all my life - up until a few years ago when a combination of things tidal-waved me and packed on the pounds. These included hormonal changes, lots of stress, less activity due to more time spent working, etc. You get t... Read more

The Power of Sparkfriends (And a Special Thank you)

Friday, May 15, 2009      5 comments

There have been so many days when I've hit a bump. Not the kind of "I give up" bump, but still dangerous because giving into bad attitude can be a slippery slope for me. The sparkfriends who've taken the time to visit my blogs/page and comment... Read more

Yikes! I Visited My Alma Mater Website & Shouldn't Compare My Progress!

Thursday, May 14, 2009      4 comments

For the first three months of this seven month lifestyle change, I was on Nutrisystem. It was beneficial in getting me started in the right way of eating - portion size, combinations of food, etc. Having started that program in October 08, I w... Read more

Wednesday, May 13, 2009      6 comments

Okay, I was on Cloud 9 for a few days due to being 3 sizes down since October 08. But now the reality has resumed in knowing that I have 20 more pounds to shed and, wow, do they feel heavy. I mean, I feel as heavy as when I first started. I t... Read more

I Still Couldn't Believe it, So I Went Back to the Store & Tried Again

Tuesday, May 12, 2009      6 comments

This is the last blog about my three dress sizes lower; I've just been in shock and have written three blogs about it. On Saturday, I bought dress pants and could not believe that I was down a total of 3 sizes since October 08. So, I went back... Read more

I've Been Talking to Myself All Day, Like a Raving Lunatic - 3 dress sizes down!

Sunday, May 10, 2009      4 comments

Honestly? I've been a bit discouraged lately due to a plateau I've been on for awhile. But I got a reminder today that the scale is not the only measure of success. I went to get new pants and thought I was one size down. But I wasn't. Went... Read more
