It's been a year

It's been a year since I've been on Spark. I am back now to kick start the old work. Yee haw!... Read more

Been gone for over 2 months - it ain't all or nothin'

Tuesday, November 06, 2007     

And now I'm back. Ok. Here I am. And here is what I've learned: I have been struck by how false an all or nothing attitude is. If I fall off the wagon for a few days, I figure I can't get back on until I'm fully committed. The lie is ... Read more

Portion size, Waist size

Tuesday, August 21, 2007     

I'm learning it's very hard to control the number of calories I am eating even when I'm trying to eat healthfully. I think the key I will start working on this week is portion control. If I could just cut my portions by a third, I'd stay withi... Read more

The mind games that come with success

Monday, August 20, 2007     

Ok, so throwing a big lunch for my friends proved to be an ambush of fatty temptation. I caved. I came in 1,000 calories over for the last three days. I should have done better, not letting the bit of success (11 pounds so far) take me off th... Read more

Preparing for the weekend

Friday, August 17, 2007     

This weekend I will spend all day cooking on Saturday. I don't mean cooking steamed veggies, either. I'll be making chicken salad and spinach dip. I'll be making peach sweet tea. All of it is for a lunch party I'm throwing on Sunday. I am b... Read more

The tortilla chips didn't defeat me

Wednesday, August 15, 2007     

If you're following my blog, you probably saw that I last wrote right after I blew my Tuesday breakfast and right before I was going out to lunch. I am sorry to report that at lunch I induldged. I induldged on the greatest food creation in exi... Read more

I've ruined breakfast and I am going out for lunch. Now what?

Tuesday, August 14, 2007     

So this morning, instead of eating my usual, I ate leftover orzo. I didn't think much about it except that I would likely not eat carbs for the rest of the day because I assumed my carb quota had been completed. What a rude awakening it was to... Read more

The first four pounds are not a fluke

Monday, August 13, 2007     

On any other day I might think that 4lbs down are a total fluke. But this Saturday I held my head high and thanked God for the encouragement. Indeed, 4lbs are off. When I hit 10 it will be time for truly big celebration because that is not a ... Read more

Dude, housework is a workout

Friday, August 10, 2007     

I'm not sure if it's that I'm getting older, but doing housework is a workout for me... Bend, push, kneel, scrub, lift... It's like a strength training class really. You can even set it to music. Now, if only there was a way to get a good wo... Read more

Weight loss is a sliding scale, not pass/fail.

Thursday, August 09, 2007     

Just one day. That's all I wanted. One day of staying within my calorie limit, excercizing, and going to bed knowing I accomplished my mission. Praise Jesus, who provides strength, I got it! Now I admit that this is a dangerous thi... Read more

There sure are a lot of skinny girls at the gym

Wednesday, August 08, 2007     

So this morning I went to the gym. Not just any gym where normal people go, but Gold's Gym in Arlington, VA, just a stone's throw from the Pentagon. It's filled with young, female intern types whose metabolisms haven't slowed down yet, and it... Read more

No more hiding

Tuesday, August 07, 2007     

Well, this is my fifth supposed day on spark people. I get pumped up about the possibility of losing weight and then, sadly, forget all about the hope set before me the very second I see a taco or chocolate chip cookie. The only success I can ... Read more
