  • On Getting Off Track, Hopping Back On, and Confusion

    4/28/2015 8:58:32 AM, by ALTRIA_FATE

    So I had a friend visit, which took me off my exercise regime, and then I just kind of... stayed off. I feel really guilty about it, and so I've stayed away from SparkPeople. (I've also been really busy, school and work are both picking up. I have a conference this weekend that I'm not as prepared f... Read more

  • 50 Pounds Down!

    4/26/2015 12:39:40 PM, by AHEALTHYGAMER

    Hello all! I decided to make a blog post regarding my 50 pounds lost, because a lot of people have asked me to share with them what I've been doing to make it happen. Let me start by saying this is kind of hard for me. I'm about to divulge pictures, numbers, and facts about myself that I haven... Read more

  • 267 days since I last visited SP

    4/23/2015 5:51:29 AM, by MEZZED

    So little has changed & yet all my triumphs in weight loss have gone away. I suppose I could list any number of excuses here but that would just be silly at this point. At my lowest point in weight lost, I felt weak but full of energy. I felt cold yet comfortable in full tropical heat. I ... Read more

    "Tend to your vital heart, and all you worry about will be solved." by Rumi | Painting by Karol Bąk I've decided to make my weigh-in day tomorrow, Wednesday morning. Every week. Again, my goal is 1 lb each week... but if I exceed that goal, all the better ;) The past few days I've b... Read more

    Hi Spark 26 I wanted to thank everyone who commented on my last blog :) gave me some good ideas for my cooking adventures. It's definitely not bad to be cooking for one.. I guess I'm just a little bit lonely, but I'm dealing with it, ya know! It's not like I don't have any friends I could... Read more

    4/17/2015 6:01:57 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    Guys I'm doing really well!!!!!!! I went to the store and bought a bunch of healthy food, and got my kitchen all cleaned up, and am cooking :) I've resisted several not-so-good food choices over the past few days, and I've been drinking more water. My goal tonight is go be asleep by 11 pm... Read more

  • Day 2

    4/14/2015 4:23:14 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    Day off! Today I am being proactive, but realistic. Lots of scattered thoughts and emotions, but I'm not letting them distract me from the task at hand: My apartment is a MESS that I have neglected for far too long... and I am going to focus on doing partial cleaning, not worrying about getting the ...

    Admittedly, I can't count how many times I've, "started over," with numbering these blogs, but I'm never forgetting the past, it's just another new birth after a cycle of reinventing myself (it happens... phoenix spirit). Sometimes it's easier to just use numbers instead of coming up with a blog tit... Read more

    Hello lovelies! I started working a few weeks ago at executive services at Safelite. I am the person who takes all of the escalated calls about warranty and legal. Hahaha. It sounds a lot worse than it is.... it basically consists of calming people down, fixing problems, and spending... Read more

    What a beautiful Spring day! The sun is shining and it's warming up nicely!

    My daughter and I just returned from a nice afternoon walk. Beautiful day, the sun is shining and it's warm. I love it! I'm back here to really buckle down! I've been using another tracking website, but you just can't beat the support here from the community! So here I am. I'm lo... Read more

  • 15 lbs down- A major milestone

    4/8/2015 8:30:44 PM, by LUSTFULCUPCAKE

    I am overcome with emotion, I'm so happy right now. I have lost 15lbs, I got serious about my life style change in February. I started out weighing 306, I am now at 291. I have been working hard the last couple of months, I lost and maintained 10lb loss the first month. Last week I joined a gym I h... Read more

    4/7/2015 4:58:04 PM, by ALTRIA_FATE

    So, yesterday, you all know I was feeling pretty down. I gained weight after a weekend of misguided decisions and resulting illness, I missed a workout day... I just wasn't happy. My stomach still gurgled a bit this morning, but I figured, eff it, I'm gonna do my run. I am signing up for the 5k tomo... Read more

  • Branching Out

    4/1/2015 12:06:35 PM, by ALTRIA_FATE

    This is just kind of a conglomeration of thoughts: KDOO82's comment the other day that I gained muscle and that's why I gained weight this past week made me think: what if I got my body composition checked? I mean, I can't compare that to when I first started working out, but I can compare it t... Read more

    I've been off the wagon again but I haven't gained or lost any so I guess that would be good right.
