I have 11 days to lose 2 more lbs in order to have 30 lbs lost by the end of the year. This is what's on top of the microwave at work. There will probably be something there every day for the rest of the year. But I'm going to lose 2 more lbs wh... Read more
A paradox

Healthy eating nowadays means giving up some of the convenience foods of our modern times. Because there’s hydrogenated this and saturated that and loads of sodium, all of which helps to make us fat, clog our arteries and generally disrupt the n... Read more

I've been wanting a quote or something to post in my signature line that expresses my general philosophy and that quote was sent to me today. Thank you UrbanMommy. I don't like to do anything just because that's the way it's always been don... Read more

I’m so excited about the new year. The success I’ve had so far is 900% more than I thought I could have before I joined SP. If it weren’t for my insurance company, I would have had Lap Band early this year – I was convinced that there was no way... Read more

I learned and tried Calorie Cycling this week. I knew there had to be a nutritional equivalent to the idea of changing your exercises in order to keep the body from getting used to what you're doing and creating plateaus, and this is it. I lost ... Read more

I made it through Thanksgiving and Las Vegas with a half pound weight loss. I'm grateful for that because I over ate a few days in Vegas, which I don't think I've done since I joined SP. But all the walking paid off, I guess. Being away f... Read more

It's going to be very easy to get my exercise, I've already put over 4k on my pedometer this morning before anyone else is up. After I hit the strip I know I'll get over 10k today. But it will be much harder than I thought to stay within my c... Read more

I was inspired to write my Thanksgiving blog today at work but I had to wait until I got home to start because I know I'm going to cry all the way through it. I've previously thanked Ben Franklin, Thomas Edison, Bill Gates and Spark Guy for... Read more

So the very act of moving, even a little, will bring about rewards. I started at Spark by walking 10 minutes a day and coming to the site and blogging every day. I'm currently rewarded with not only the 20 lbs lost but SO much motivation and enc... Read more

I bought a sandwich today that came with a bag of chips. My favorite brand of chips. I opened the bag, ate 3 small chips and emptied the rest into the trash. Someday I plan to have that kind of discipline with regard to exercise. Someday.... Read more

I love my jump rope
Monday, October 29, 2007      8 comments

My grand sons think it's the funniest thing they've ever heard. Grandma, jumping rope. It's very difficult to be coordinated at my current size (not to mention, age) and I can't do it for very long (yet)- but I love it and I'm going to do it e... Read more
Living in Candy Central
Sunday, October 28, 2007      6 comments

This is a marketing company, so imaginative, right brainers all over the place. The Halloween decorations are fabulous and we had a trick or treat day for kids; so there is candy EVERYWHERE. I have not had one piece - if I come across something ... Read more
