Back in the saddle
Monday, January 19, 2009      1 comments

I am an outdoor exerciser; my cardio minutes come from riding my bike almost daily and paddling the dragonboat with my team twice a week. This early winter shoved a big wrench in those works. Portland had the most snow it's had in more than 50 y... Read more

Summer fruit time! yay! Today I've had a peach and an apricot, and I've got some strawberries waiting on my desk. I love summer! It's early yet but soon the berries will be out in force... and I'll be buying flats of them... eating and eating ... Read more
Set-point re-set redux
Friday, May 16, 2008      0 comments

I'm pretty sure I've blogged about this before... the set-point re-set. My "set-point" - my body's natural happy place - was 185 for years. I topped out at 195 but fortunately didn't stick there. On my way down I've plateau'd at several intermed... Read more
And now they're gone again...

The 3lbs are gone again, taking an extra 1/2lb with them. I shall remain vigilant in the face of trail mix, m&ms, and brownies. I admit I am curious. Many people have experienced gaining and losing the same 2-5lbs over and over again. ... Read more
Ahh, they're back!!!!!!!

The last 3lbs are back!!! Or else the 171 on the scale was a fluke. Either way I should have expected it. I stopped paying attention. I ate dessert every day, sometimes twice. I stopped counting the number of m&m's in my cup. I ate loa... Read more
And another thing...

I've noticed I can wear a t-shirt tucked in with a belt. I haven't been able to do that since at least college. AND most of my pants require belts again. In high school I always wore belts; after college, never. The belts are back! ... Read more

Today is my 1 year anniversary on Sparkpeople. I have lost about 25 pounds. I have done it slowly, safely, and permanently, and I have not upended my life to do it. In fact, I have enjoyed it immensely - being fit is a wonderful feeling. I have ... Read more
Woo-hoo size 10!!!!!!!
Monday, March 17, 2008      1 comments

BF made me go shopping for pants yesterday. I don't like shopping & I'm not at goal, and I've been "in between" sizes for a long time now, making it harder to find stuff that fits. But he made me go and picked stuff off the rack and brought it t... Read more
It doesn't take that much...

Hi all, I haven't been spending too much time on Spark, being back in school and up to my ears in work... but I wanted to be sure and say a few things that I've noticed, which I hope help one or two people. My goal is/was to lose 30-35 lbs and... Read more
bummed out
Wednesday, January 16, 2008      4 comments

Here I was thinking that I had this down... I can't stop eating! Even when I'm full I eat stuff I don't need just cuz it's there, or I want it, or someone offers & I don't say no. What's up with that? I can't even bring myself to track the ... Read more
Observation on calories in
Monday, January 07, 2008      1 comments

Something unexpected seems to have occurred. (Knock on wood.) Last year on Spark my challenge was to keep my calorie intake under 2k/day. I found this very difficult and I rarely acheived it. However, as I lost weight I stopped tracking regu... Read more
Journaling as motivation
Thursday, January 03, 2008      0 comments

As part of Fastbreak, I picked keeping a journal as the motivation habit to work on. So here I am. Right now I am sad. My favorite SP blogger has disappeared, sparkpage and all. Wherever you are Terrie, I hope you are doing well, unstoppabl... Read more
Starting over

New year, new you. I lost about 20lbs last year. My doc said to lose 10-15 more, and to take 6 months to do it. The new year seems like a good time to get started, so here I am. I'm starting over at Stage 1: Fastbreak, with new goals, new t... Read more
