"The principle is competing against yourself. It's about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before." I am usually competing against someone else--namely, my husband's ex-girlfriend who is the mother of my precious 11... Read more
My New Role Model
Monday, September 27, 2010      1 comments

Somehow I ended up Googling Kate Winslet just now. I've no idea how it happened. I can't back track what led up to my mind going that direction. But I think she's my new role model. For one thing, she's English. I could listed to her (o... Read more
Still Not Used to Me...
Thursday, September 23, 2010      5 comments

After being an XL for soooooooo long, it's really hard for me to REALLY buy the right size. My husband always makes fun of me because I return about 80% of the clothes I buy because I don't like the way they fit when I get home and actually put... Read more
The Ol' Overeating Habit
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      0 comments

Has anyone ordered their "regular" at a restaurant because that's what you used to get--before the SP takeover on your life, that is? I've done that twice lately. And lemme tell ya, when the human body is used to eating smaller, healthy portio... Read more
Not Making the Numbers
Monday, September 20, 2010      0 comments

I've consistently had a hard time making my calories lately. Two days in a row last week I was almost 300 calories shy of my minimum 1200 calories. I don't feel that I'm starving myself--in fact, I don't notice that I'm hungry at all. I mean,... Read more
Just made up a good snack!

I grabbed 4 oz of my nonfat plain Greek yogurt on my way back to work from lunch at home today. I also had 1/2c of a blueberry-strawberry no added sugar compote (I posted it on the SparkRecipes site) I made this weekend, since I needed to use i... Read more
UGH! I hate the old days...

...meaning the old FAT days. And one of them (well, just the evening part) just came back and bit me in the ass. I was doing FANTASTICALLY today. My calories were right on track, I planned on getting on the treadmill this evening. Yeah, ... Read more
Will Power!

I LOVE a recipe that I found on SP--it's chicken and green beans (and I added broccoli and peas) with peanut butter sauce. I LOVE IT!!!!!! I served myself 2 portions for lunch today (leftovers rock) even though I felt guilty as soon as I s... Read more
Another WooHoo at Work
Sunday, September 12, 2010      1 comments

I sometimes feel like a poster child for Spark People. I tell EVERYONE at work who asks me about my weight loss. They've noticed I've lost weight and want to know how I did it, because they see me eating all the time. LOL I have a co-w... Read more
Nature is rude.

I planted 4 Sweet 100s tomato plants, a strawberry plant, and two dwarf green bean plants this spring. I don't know that it could be considered that we *ever* really had summer this summer. We had a couple of really hot days, but fall has ... Read more
Back on Track...hopefully
Tuesday, September 07, 2010      1 comments

I ate well (as well as I could at Burger King for lunch without having just a salad) today and went for an almost-3 mile walk, family and all. The last 2 or so weeks has been tough--my husband came home so I want to do nothing but sit and e... Read more
I feel ugly.
Thursday, September 02, 2010      3 comments

Ok, so I have to bitch a little. And I just get teased at work (which I can take because I love the people I work with--99% guys) so I'm venting here. I woke up this morning with the dreaded sensation that there was something in my eye. S... Read more
Damn healthy eating!
Thursday, September 02, 2010      1 comments

I've found the downside to eating healthy. It makes me have to go to the store more!! It seems like I go shopping every week for things that are either refrigerated (my new love affair with Greek yogurt) or in the produce section (why can't th... Read more
Hi, my name is Delaney and I'm a control freak.
Tuesday, August 24, 2010      1 comments

I've always wondered how someone can be anorexic (or bulimic, for that matter). I love food too much to not eat it, and I love food too much to enjoy it and then have to regurgitate it (plus I absolutely HATE vomiting, but that's probably more ... Read more
So which water is better?
Monday, August 23, 2010      2 comments

I've always heard that it's better to drink room temperature or slightly warm water than to drink cold or iced water. The experts say that your body uses the water better when it's already close to your internal temperature. If that's the ... Read more
