  • Looking at long term goals:

    4/20/2017 9:19:30 AM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    Yesterday I found a cute pair of shorts in the PCV lounge. They were a size 12, I went ahead and tried them on thinking that no way they would fit, they do and they look good!!!!! So even though I have come up a little in my weight my overall health and size are good. Thinking about long te... Read more

  • Don't Stop Living Because You are at Odds with How the Country is Being Run.

    4/12/2017 1:58:31 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    And neither will I. I was just thinking tonight that I pay way too much attention to what's going on in politics. It's like I put my life on hold to see what I can be amazed and shocked at each day. And there is something new each day. But I won't stop living because of the strange things done by ou...

  • It's pretty easy to add your loss to the weight loss ticker.

    4/7/2017 4:20:44 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    It's quite another thing to fill in a gain. I looked at my ticker tonight, and I was 4.2 pounds up from my last entry. So I updated it to my current 290 lbs. I now will work to lose 30 lbs, with my goal being to lose in five pound increments, as stated in an earlier blog about my weight loss plan th... Read more

  • Okay. This is it!

    4/7/2017 3:09:02 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    Tired of reading about weight loss all of the time and staying the same. Tomorrow, I will return to 8 or 9 fruits and vegetables per day with attempts made to reduce fat. (Just eating that much plant food does crowd out fats from other sources.) Also, on Saturday, I'm returning to the gym. Ha... Read more

  • Day 10!

    4/5/2017 10:30:07 AM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    I am currently on day 10 of my reset. No added sugar, no alcohol, no wheat, no dairy. I am now down 4 lbs. So I am thinking there was some residual irritation and bloating. I have not added to my typical exercise that much. I think if I get motivated to add weights in, I will likely drop at le... Read more

  • THE TWO POUND DANCE

    4/2/2017 7:57:31 AM, by 4DOGNIGHT

    I weigh everyday even though most diets tell you not to. For me, it is helpful to keep me on track and any progress is a blessing. So, during the week, I will have a day when my weight dips to a new low. I will record that weight here on Spark. Then I will experience the two pound dance where th... Read more

  • 5 days down!

    4/1/2017 12:25:15 PM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    So my alcohol ban will end a day early due to a party that I have already paid for. On the up note I did not drink the day before I started so technically it was 21 days! I am holding steady at my weight, but it has only been 5 days. Last night I went out with friends and had club soda and ... Read more

  • APRIL JOURNEY, DAY 1

    4/1/2017 8:22:35 AM, by 4DOGNIGHT

    I've decided to try to journal my progress on my recent weight loss journey. I have tried every diet in the book to no avail and I had reached a weight that just wasn't pretty! Something had to be done when I had to buy a size 16W jeans in December just to have something to wear on a trip north to... Read more

  • Only 30 lbs to go.

    3/30/2017 7:54:53 AM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    Yeah it has only been 30 lbs since November! I am hoping that cutting almost all processed foods and gluten, sugar, dairy and alcohol will kick it up a notch. I have been riding my bike instead of walking so my step counts are low. It also does not help that I have been sitting more at work. I k... Read more

  • "Still, Our Knowledge of the Planets was Meager and Where Ignorance Lurks, So Too Do the Frontiers

    3/29/2017 3:49:35 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    of Discovery and Imagination." This was an early line from Neil Degrasse Tyson's nonfiction book, Death by Black Hole. I thought it had significance way beyond space. It can apply to any endeavor. To me, it fueled an optimism. An opportunity to use a new approach to that which we don't un... Read more

  • W is for Weekend Workout

    3/26/2017 9:12:11 PM, by BANANASLOUIE7

    Saturday, my daughter and I went to the Open House at the new LA Fitness that's not too far from us. We spent about an hour or hour-and-a-half there...said no, thank you to fitness training other than the complimentary hour that comes with the membership...found out that the physical therapy agency,...
