I Got an Award!
Well, I'll be.....I checked my email today and found out I got a Consistency Award from Sparkpeople! This is big for me because consistency is something I struggle with. If I can't do something perfectly 100% of the time, I'm likely to stop tryi... Read more
My neighbor brought over a loaf of banana bread she had baked last night. I ate SEVERAL pieces over the course of the day. Apparently, no one else in my house likes banana bread (who ARE these people??!!!?!?) so I threw it in the trash!! Yes, I ... Read more
2010.....When Did THAT Happen?!?!
Wow, so it's 2010. I remember figuring out how old I'd be in the year 2000 and thinking how freakishly old 38 sounded. I'll be 48 this year. I FEEL about 28 still, so it's all just odd!
So, I want to get myself back. Somewhere inside me the... Read more
For the past couple of days I have not been listening to my body. I have been eating too many calories, and they are empty calories, from wine, pretzels, etc. I have not excerised once this spring break. Not once. I need to learn from this and h... Read more
Well, I'll Be!
I'm stunned! I did Weight Watchers for years and stayed roughly the same weight. I think I'm the type of person who wants to "cheat" or try to "get away with something" when I follow someone else's program. So, I've been following my own progra... Read more
Long Time No Post..........
You know, the more things change, the more they stay the same.
I know I will always be interested in living a healthy lifestyle. I know I will always enjoy good food and wine. I know I will always feel better after I exercise. I've been in... Read more
"Mommy's belly is SOOOOO big!"
That's what my 5 year old daughter said earlier today. Wow. I was stung, of course. I told her that my feelings were hurt and that it's not polite to comment on how others look. Then I went into the bathroom and cried.
I cried because she'... Read more
Interested or Committed?
This was on a Weight Watchers message board. I've seen it other places, too, likely here on Spaerkpeople! I like it so I'm posting it!
"If you're "interested" in losing weight...
--You stick with it only until something better comes along... Read more
I Think I'm ADD.................
Okay, so I've decided to follow the Weight Watchers Core plan now. I seriously am having committment issues here! I really did well on phase 1 of South Beach, but then when I added 1 grain and 1 fruit all heck broke loose! I know any program wor... Read more
You Can't Always Get What You Want
I am so tired of feeling like I *can't* have something. Makes me want it more. I know that the food plan that allows me to eat and drink whatever I want in whatever amounts I want is NOT a weight LOSS plan, though! That's the plan that had me at... Read more
I wonder why sometimes a person can be so into the positive changes they're making in their health and other times it can seem too daunting, too hard. The shift can come so quickly, too. Maybe it's hormones, maybe the weather, maybe it's planet... Read more
Dinner Last Night
One of the families I've taught has a tradition that after the youngest of their 3 daughters has had a teacher they take that teacher to dinner at a fancy Italian restaurant here in town. Their youngest finished 2nd grade this past year so it wa... Read more
What Have I Become?!
So I ate my dinner tonight and was still hungry. I waited 10 minutes or so to see if it would pass. I drank a big glass of water. I was still hungry. So for dessert I decided to have........................a salad. Yes, a big ol' bowl of chopped... Read more
I am having a hard time committing to one eating program. I know Weight Watchers works, but I'm intrigued by the South Beach Diet. It seems easier to follow and I like the focus on healthy, whole foods. I cannot stand the thought of counting poi... Read more

I did not meet my goal of staying w/in my c... Read more
