This has not been the best year for me in the area of weight loss. I have not only gained 15 lbs but my blood pressure has gone up again and I may need to go back on meds. But there's hope! My new job has a great fitness center and personal... Read more

I don't know what happened and I don't know how to fix it. I mean, I do actually KNOW, intellectually. If someone else had this problem I'd be able to provide a million tips, outline a strategy, offer encouragement... But I just can't get a grip... Read more

But boy do I hate it! I avoid it as much as I can in favor of outdoor walking. But I didn't get out early enough this morning and the temperature and sun are scorching, so my only alternative today was the dreaded treadmill. I varied the s... Read more

And I can stop bragging about the 60 lbs I’ve lost until I can add something to that. I appreciate how far I’ve come and I’m so grateful every day to have lost 60 lbs and for how that has changed my life. But I have to find a way to convince my ... Read more

My body is playing some kind of trick on me. Everything at once is going hay wire. My back has been hurting for a week now. No reason that I can think of, it just hurts when I sit for a while. So the doc sends me to physical therapy today.... Read more

I feel pretty crappy today. My back, stomach and head hurt. I think it's my imagination but I may be a little feverish too. I haven't exercised in 2 days and turned into some kind of eating machine, I just ate and ate and ate and gained a... Read more

And I've tried for going on 3 years, but if I don't use it, I don't lose weight. Because even people who don't have a delusional fat mind tend to under estimate what they eat and mentally fudge on some details. You don't get to pretend somethin... Read more

So the 17 year old couldn't find his wallet this morning and missed the bus. Grandma has declared that she will not be taking anyone to school if they miss the bus even if they have to walk to school. These kids know nothing about walking to sch... Read more

The transplant failed and I'll have to put my pedometer down. She's been an awesome motivator and I sure hate to lose her. I had a nice ambitious 7 mile walk all mapped out for this morning when the phone rang. "Grandma can you take us to s... Read more

I'm shocked. In this day and age I thought... Well I guess I thought advertisers and fashion mags etc had become enlightened. I don't look at fashion magazines usually. I like to look at stylish clothes but it isn't important to me and I d... Read more

1. I want to be an example. I see women my age who move as if they're "old". A coworker commented on the spring in my step the other day, she was ambling along as if her legs could hardly hold her up. One day she's going to ask me how I do it... Read more

Woo Hoo! The weekly meeting with fellow Sparkers is a huge incentive. I really like eating the same things daily. A few tweaks here and there, but mostly the same meals and snacks daily. And I'm finally able to use the scale as a guide t... Read more
