  • Perfectionism...my arch-nemesis!

    12/19/2014 1:24:40 PM, by PIGLETIA

    I've always liked that I set high standards for myself & work hard to achieve them. Many have said I'm a perfectionist. I've always seen it as a good thing except when it comes to my overall health. I can rewrite a paper 12x yet I can't stick w/a day or plan to get healthier. Then when I do start, s... Read more

  • Celebrating One Month of Transition to Maintenance

    12/13/2014 8:56:48 AM, by RONNIMICHELLE

It's to be my leeway weight, if you know what I mean. So the final goal is to get below that weight by about 5 pounds so that when Chri... Read more

  • Reappraisal: Transitioning to Maintenance

    12/10/2014 3:36:53 AM, by RONNIMICHELLE

    This coming Saturday marks one month since I hit my goal weight, and I'm hoping to have a good number on the scale that day. It's symbolically very important, as I don't think I've ever sustained my goal weight for an entire month. To see a good number would be empowering, to say the least. Today I ... Read more

  • Oh Humbug it's Christmas

    12/6/2014 8:20:39 PM, by HYATTI1

    Oh my gosh, I am worn out from the Thanksgiving Holiday now I am facing Christmas and all that brings. I so enjoy getting together the few times a year, but as the years go by it seems like it tires me more and more. Our Thanksgiving was filled with a ton of food, ( I did not over eat th... Read more

  • I must have lied

    11/28/2014 11:35:41 AM, by NUTSNUTSGETEM

    I did another half yesterday, and it was really a let down for me. A few year back, when I posted my original Sparkpeople profile, I said that I was 1722 out of 1791 and I wouldn't have cared if I was last. Between then and now, I had fallen way off the wagon, had gotten much more out of shape... Read more
