2019 Recap and 2020 Goals
Thursday, January 02, 2020      2 comments

I remember exactly how I felt one year ago. My back hurt me terribly and I was sick and tired of feeling weighted down - literally. Fast forward to today and I am SO GLAD I made the choices I did last year! I am officially down 25 pounds in o... Read more
Dusting myself off
Thursday, June 27, 2019      5 comments

Time to get my head back into the game. Pick myself up and dust myself off, so to speak. June has been a kind of loosey-goosey train wreck. Things were hectic at the beginning of the month. Then I had some time to myself during the middle of the... Read more
Emotion and Nausea (or is that "ad nauseum" LOL)
Tuesday, June 04, 2019      3 comments

I've just had something come up and I'm trying to figure it out WHILE I type this blog... so this blog might not make a lot of sense and/or it will probably sound like I'm rambling. I'm trying to put some pieces of a puzzle together. My dau... Read more
Counting
Monday, February 25, 2019      4 comments

At what point do I "naturally" stop counting weeks? At some point I stopped counting days... but I don't remember when. I'm sure at some point I'll stop counting weeks, too. Just pondering what will trigger me to stop counting weeks and wonder... Read more
"Training" Matters!

My sister is in the process of quitting smoking as of this past Wednesday. YEAH, SISTER!!!!! She didn't tell me until I got to her house on Saturday and, as with anyone going through a major life overhaul like she is (she's been a smoker for 37 ... Read more
Went out to lunch today...
Tuesday, January 29, 2019      2 comments

I covered for a co-worker for 5 months at the end of last year and it was a LOT of extra work. Two weeks ago she asked the three of us that covered for her if she could take us to lunch this week. I don't like spitting in anyone's face and the... Read more
Blog once a week?
Tuesday, January 22, 2019      1 comments

I just read a blog by one of my new SparkFriends and she is apparently trying to blog once a week. I think that's a good idea. I need to start getting out of my head again. That was very helpful before. So I'm going to call my "weeks" Tuesda... Read more
I miss my ol' Spark buddies.... :(
Tuesday, January 15, 2019      1 comments

Logged on today and, after a bit, noticed that I'd spent a good while wandering around my friends' pages and the pages of THEIR friends.... Finally realized I was looking for a familiar face. Someone I knew from back when. Someone else that i... Read more
The things I've LEARNED here!
Monday, January 07, 2019      5 comments

I'm realizing now just how much SparkPeople did for me - wait - how much it showed me how to do for myself! - when I started this journey back in 2006. Small example: I was planning (this go-round) to weigh myself every Tuesday morning. 2... Read more
Steady Betty
Monday, May 16, 2016      5 comments

5 weeks in the books and I feel like Steady Betty today. 2 pounds per week. On the dot. At this rate I'll be at my first goal in 6-7 more weeks. I haven't looked at the calendar to see when that is. I'm sure I will soon enough. But it doesn't re... Read more
Day 3 - Quick note
Wednesday, April 13, 2016      1 comments

Taking a quick break at work while I'm waiting for the energy from my lunch to kick in so I can focus again on my work. Decided to look back.... WAYYYYYYY back.... at my trackers from 2007, when I was kicking some major butt. Very insightful! ... Read more
Set points
Thursday, April 10, 2014      4 comments

When I started the continuation of this journey this most recent time (about 5 weeks ago), I had already gotten the refined sugar beasties out of my system in preparation. I tackled that issue back in November or December of last year (not at al... Read more

3 more pounds and I'll have reached my first mini-goal.... I'll be back in ONE-DERLAND!!!!... Read more
Review of past history
Sunday, March 23, 2014      1 comments

Ah, the beauty of tracking! I was just able to go back on the weight tracker and do a rough analysis of my past history. What I learned was interesting and may help me when I get back down to my goal weight. When I first started SP back in ... Read more
Looking back
Thursday, March 20, 2014      1 comments

I'm going back to my roots, so to speak, in order to build on my momentum. I'm halfway through Week 2, down 7 lbs already, and feeling more empowered every day. This is feeling more and more like the journey I started back in late 2006 and even... Read more
