Hello! I've "said" I've decided to finally get healthy many times over the years. This time the decision has stuck. Since March I've lost 28 lbs. Yes, it took superficial motivation to get started. My favorite band announced an August tour, in... Read more

Hope you are all well. The time change is kicking my butt. I awoke to find that my IT band overuse injury has apparently spread to the other leg. :-( It doesn't have the same excruciating pain, but it's very sore to touch. I'm now trying t... Read more

Hi! Sorry, I don't seem to answer people often. I'm extremely forgetful and distracted. I saw a dietician today. In addition to the normal spiel about the Healthy Plate method, she said I am doing 2 main things wrong that prevent me losing ... Read more

So. I have decided. I will lose 100 pounds. Period. However long it takes me. Slow is good. I will do weights. I will do cardio. I will work on my mental roadblocks. I've already started. Suppose I should take my "before" picture. I'm reluctant ... Read more
Thank you all!

I can't be the only one struggling to do all this. It's been years and I still can't get it all to click. I log on and browse my groups and there's so much pep. "What did you do today?" "Cleaned my whole house in prep for the fitness cha... Read more

Hello. I hope you're all doing well. Wishing all of you peace. This has to have been the fastest summer I ever had. Okay, I didn't really have one. I literally had less than a handful of days with no commitments. I also turned 50. A... Read more

I started reading the book "The War of Art" by Steven Pressfield. It's about writing, but also life. One of the main points is that nearly every thing you know you should do but aren't doing is probably caused by resistance. Perfectionism, procr... Read more

Hello, It's one of those mornings that started off well and tanked at breakfast. I forgot ds's homework assignment. Our idea was simple, quick and seemed like it would work. Except it didn't. So he went with something that looked half-@ssed... Read more

Hello! Lots happening here. Lots of stress, lots of moving, lots of enlightenment. I got that part time job back in December and it's a LOT more physical than I expected. Some days I go home and am so sore and exhausted I can barely stand ... Read more

Hope anyone reading this is doing well. I've been trying, doing my challenges, and yet, have gained weight. Don't know why. Biggest news this week is that I lost half of my sparktracker yesterday. It apparently fell apart as I was w... Read more

Hello, I'm doing well on my challenges so far. That makes me happy. I haven't lost anything yet though. This week I'm eating lots of extra vegetables too. My work this week had lots of physical activity. Combined with the challenge vi... Read more

I found an answer to the whole pre-diabetes yes or no debate. The doctors who say 5.7 is the new borderline are right. The nurse and my current doc are, okay, not wrong per se but giving a bit of extra leeway. According to the charts... Read more

Hope everyone is well. I am getting over 3 weeks of bronchitis/bad asthma/laryngitis. So I've been gaining a little. My walking partner was also sick so there's been no walking. I got a part time day job that's about 80% sweat-inducing phy... Read more

You know, that one that was making me lose weight. I got all worried that it was diabetes. Yep, so I stopped losing and am yo-yo-ing. 5 lbs. I am guilty of weighing two or three times a week instead of my usual Monday morning. I'm going to ... Read more
