  • Yes, I did it!

    11/20/2015 4:04:47 PM, by JAZZEJR

    I'm looking at 133 on the scale, no matter how many times I step off and step on. There's satisfaction in attaining my goal. But now I'm starting to worry. Next week is Thanksgiving, and nothing I'll be eating is low-cal except the green beans. I hope the struggle to get to my goal wei... Read more

  • This time, I think I'm gonna make it!

    11/16/2015 12:08:26 PM, by JAZZEJR

    This is the last week of our Fall 5% Challenge. Yesterday I weighed in at 134.4 and today at 134 (just checking to be sure that it wasn't going to be one of those "down one day and up the next" deals). My goal, not just for the challenge, but my overall goal is 133. Usually I get close but never ... Read more

  • Oh, NO! Not my pizza coupons!

    11/4/2015 8:47:27 AM, by JAZZEJR

    One of my challenges "The Fit Food Challenge" featured this article on how to make our environment more conducive to the changes we say we want to make. I was all for cleaning out and organizing the fridge and pantry, etc. Then it got serious -- "NO pizza coupons." But .... those are the only on... Read more

  • Habit time!

    11/1/2015 5:20:36 AM, by MEDDYPEDDY

    The habit of adding habits did not work ;-) Mostly because I ran out of ideas of habits that I really wanted, there were many things that I "ought to" but my heart was not in it. But now I have an idea that inspires me ... Background: I have learned that logistics is very important to me... Read more

  • Getting Back on Track!!!

    10/31/2015 8:20:32 AM, by ANNEMARGAR

    Three weeks of travel totally threw me off my game!!! Little by little I threw in the towel on things I know help me sleep, feel good, and be on top of my game. Each time I thought, "Well, just once won't hurt me" and then the next time, "Well, what's one more time", etc, etc. So, what happened??... Read more

  • My VLCD and LCD

    10/28/2015 1:33:12 AM, by MEDDYPEDDY

    First: I have my doctors permission and even encouragement to follow the 12 weeks of VLCD and LCD (500 kcal three weeks, 800 kcal nine weeks) that starts the two-year commitment I have made. My blood and other tests shows now problems and I have felt no dizziness, nausea or even lack of energy duri... Read more

  • Current situation

    10/27/2015 1:52:37 AM, by MEDDYPEDDY

    Usually, when I fall silent on Spark it is because I am having a bad streak, eating compulsively and gaining weight. This time it has been the opposite. My situation in august was desperate. I had not managed to lose any weight during vacation and started my autumn fatter than ever before, my s... Read more

  • Having Trouble with Healthy Food Choices on the Road

    10/26/2015 6:34:37 AM, by ANNEMARGAR

    I am on business travel until Wednesday evening. I usually do okay with selecting healthy food choices, but for the past two nights - what I thought would be a healthy food choice turned out to anything but healthy. What get's me is why don't I have the guts to say, "I can't eat this" and send the... Read more
