Slow going, but still going...

My weight has not been falling off at 2 pounds a week consistently but I am hopeful that if I stay on my program, the pounds will come off. I attribute some of my slow weightloss to a woman's cycle--engorge, release. I am hoping that when I do... Read more
Still All In

Still focusing on my eating program and most days I am way below my limits in carbohydrates and calories. I feel hunger now and then and I eat something like a Diana's banana treat. It's kind of like ice cream but it's a banana! My scales is ... Read more
Staying On Track

Weighed myself and I'm staying with my goal of losing 2 pounds a week. I'm pretty proud of my ability to stay in my calorie range, but occasionally I exceed my range (bummer) today. I was happy about my weigh-in, but my mom was in the h... Read more
First week and 2 pounds down.

Last Thursday, I got real with my situation. I actually blogged that I am obese. I am not used to facing up to my weight. I am happy to report a solid week of logging my food and being low-cal. My scales report that I am down 2 solid pounds!... Read more
I am overweight and I have to do something about it.
Wednesday, July 18, 2012      5 comments

I DVRed The Weight of the Nation and finally had the courage to watch the first episode. I have to face that I am obese and killing myself with poor choices. On top of that, these choices are not making me very happy either. I do not like bei... Read more

If you are like me, you had a lot of resolve to lose weight in early January. The cold weather makes you into a hibernating bear. Winter gives you a great excuse to not get out and hike or whatever. I am usually pretty good about choosing Sou... Read more
Having a hard time staying motivated.

Lately I've really had the blues. Work is a drag, but I can't just quit. I've had trouble curbing my appetite too. Planning a vacation next month though that will include hiking and being outdoors. My mom is coming with us and that's a... Read more

It's a quiet Sunday here in S. GA. I am happy to report a weightloss of 3.5 pounds today. Yay! I'm so pleased to be below 230, and now seeing 225 on the scale is very lovely! I haven't been eating too many carbs and haven't been overeating a... Read more
Saturday in South Georgia

It's been another quiet day around the house after a tough week. My stepdad passed away last Sunday as well as a co-worker's 11-year-old son by choking on steak (apparently he aspirated the bite and had heart failure). Another friend's husband... Read more

When working, I am busy and distracted and since I bring my lunch, I eat correctly. When I am home and NOT working, it's a different story. My son is celebrating his 11th birthday and I have helped him eat his birthday cake and pizza. Ah well... Read more

I do better on my weightloss journey when I am working. When I am idle, I tend to fill the time eating. So I've been back at work for a week and I'm back down in the zone I was in before the holiday. That's great to not have lost too much gro... Read more
Here I go again!

I went off the Spark Grid for quite a while. Hopefully some of my old friends did not and will make contact. I actually gained quite a bit of weight too and hit an all-time high last summer. I had a health crisis and stepped on the doctor's s... Read more
Motivated by new ideas

I lost weight with Atkins, but just can't bring myself to do it again. I lost weight on South Beach, but just can't get fired up to eat 4.5 cups of veggies every day. I am a slave to my eating. I'm trying a new weight-loss strategy called the... Read more
Am I back in the saddle?

I do more sparking in my head than in actual fact. Today though I went to a hip-hop class and made it through 20 minutes before I just got tired of not being able to do the choreography. I spent 20 more minutes on the treadmill to compensate. ... Read more
Thoughts after watching Oprah yesterday
Saturday, May 30, 2009      2 comments

I watched an epi of Oprah that featured participants of the Biggest Loser TV show. All had lost enormous amounts of weight with the show. Some had regained though when they left the show and went back to normal life. If anyone can relate to t... Read more
