Thursday, June 04, 2009      5 comments

This has been my biggest hurdle - eating between dinner and bedtime. It's a lifetime habit and a hard one to break. Even though I've snacked healthy during this new time of lifestyle change in eating behaviors, I will see better results if I ... Read more

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

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
