Long time no see
I've been away from Spark for a while, but still continuing with my weight loss journey. I'm relaxing a bit but still eating healthy and exercising. I've lost 6kg, I feel good, my clothes are looser (I can pull off my jeans without unbuttoning t... Read more
Phew - lucky loss!
I haven't been working too hard this week and am very surprised to report a 1.2kg loss (2.6lb). I have had a bit of a health scare and have taken it easy. I had a headache for five days, and some numbness on my left side (!!!). The docs checked ... Read more
The scales! I nearly forgot!
I took them back yesterday, the first person I spoke to at the returns desk looked at the visa statement and the scales with the stickers on the box and said ‘sure thing’ and I went on my merry way to choose a r... Read more

Eight weeks to form a habit?
Someone said to me today that it takes eight weeks to make a habit. I’ve heard a few different versions of this idea before. I wonder how much truth there is to it. Right now I am feeling a little less motivated that I was in the first two weeks... Read more
Lost 1.7kg this week, which is fantastic, I'm ahead of myself on my goals now and feeling really good. My scales are still being a bit tempermental, but at least they're going down.
Yay for me!... Read more
I JUST JOGGED FOR SEVEN MINUTES!!!!
I did my interval walking podcast, 32 mins total, then thought I'd have a crack and jogging as far as I could. I jogged until it hurt, and I'm very proud of my achievement! Woo hoo!... Read more
Sticking to it
I’m still going strong, getting through each day without too much trouble. It’s TTOM though, which has been making my feel tired, nauseous and sore. I took time out yesterday afternoon and had a 2 hour nap, which helped revive me. I felt a lot b... Read more
I'm really proud of myself, I got through last nights family do without overdoing my calories. I kept the snacks to a minimum, but still allowed myself a couple of bites of treats (mmm I love cheese!). I had a small serving of the steak and sala... Read more
Feeling good now
I'm feeling good right now but yesterday was a bad day. I did good with my calories and exercise, but I was SO tired. I'm not sure why, I think maybe I've been over doing it.
I wasn't going to exercise today, to give myself a rest, but thought... Read more
Day four of the new year and I'm feeling quite positive and motivated. I think that focussing on my food and exercise is making me more aware of my current body shape, which I had been ignoring recently! But I still feel positive because I know ... Read more
Happy New Year!
I don't know how many times I 've "started" this journey, or yet another journal. Too many times to count. I could promise myself that I'll do this every day forever. But that's not achieveable. So instead, I'll promise myself to make good choic... Read more
