So Impatient to Get this Yucky Stuff Off My Body
Friday, May 29, 2009      2 comments

Some days I'm patient, and some days I'm not. Now I can feel this extra weight on my bones as though it's 10 tons rather than 20 lbs. Feels so heavy and burdensome, and should motivate me to exercise more. My body is stubbornly holding onto t... Read more

Thursday, May 28, 2009      2 comments

Today's one of the day's when it dawns on me - wow, I feel so much more wonderful without these 33 lbs (fluctuates between 31-33)!!! Not that I ever take it for granted, but most of the time, I'm busy lamenting that I've been on a plateau or tha... Read more

I celebrated the holiday weekend by adding two pieces of equipment to my home gym. I have a treadmill, elliptical, exercise bike, stairmaster, etc. I added an ab cruncher and leg magic. Now, I have to get busier on all of them. (p.s. I have a... 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

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

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
