On Track

Saturday, October 03, 2015      16 comments

I've been on a good trend, losing around .5 - 1.5 pounds a week for the past couple of months. Passed a landmark with today's weigh-in - the halfway mark on my Spark Ticker. Read more

With the BLC starting up in just a few days (September 14th!) and the 5% Challenge a week or so later, I decided it was time to update my Spark page. My new profile pic is CAMO Boo (Go, CAMO!) and the background is a reminder of my word for the ... Read more

Once again I'm pushing the reset button. Last week's challenge helped me better see the changes I need to make. Sometime in the weeks ahead, I'll write about the decisions I need to make in the year ahead as I reach retirement age. I don't plan ... Read more

Back and Forth

Sunday, May 31, 2015      10 comments

My weight line on the Spark tracker keeps jiggling up and down, but still I'm showing a 7-pound loss for the 8 weeks of the 5% challenge. Back and forth is OK as long as it's mostly forth! Congrats to the other 5% losers and thanks to my fellow ... Read more

Today is a day off for me - it's Ascension Day and a bank holiday in Germany. Tomorrow is "Kalte Sophia", the day for Saint Sophie, and thus the name day for an old friend. I have to remember to call her - in Poland where she's from, name days a... Read more

In about 24 hours, I'll be getting in line at the Frankfurt airport to board a flight for Dallas/Fort Worth on my way to Florida. I'm not sure about the logic of that, but... Read more

"Doe, a Deer"

Sunday, January 18, 2015      11 comments

This blog has nothing to do with "Sound of Music", Julie Andrews or deer. It's about starting at the "very beginning." My trusty scale told me this morning that I've lost another two pounds making a total of 5 since I made me most recent restart... Read more
