How Do I Know When I am Done
Monday, December 28, 2009      8 comments

When I first started Spark People, in March of 2008, I had no real goal for weight loss. I just wanted more energy, which I obtained very quickly. Then I wanted to be under 300 pounds because I hadn't been under 300 pounds in over 15 years, an... Read more
The Wii Told Me I Was Overweight Today
Thursday, December 24, 2009      11 comments

I started using my Wii Fit when I weighed 330 pounds. Its max weight is 330 pounds, so I had to lose some weight before I could even use it because I started out about 340. I was very excited the day it registered me and did not give me an err... Read more
My First Run at the Turkey Trot
Friday, November 27, 2009      12 comments

Yesterday, on Thanksgiving, I ran in the Long Beach Turkey Trot. This was my first running event ever. I decided to jump into it, and bypass the 5k, and go strait for the 10k. I have been walking about 4 miles every morning for over a year no... Read more
Dressing Up Is More Fun After Losing Some Weight
Tuesday, November 10, 2009      13 comments

The other night I went to a little shindig for my sister's 30th birthday, and I was thinking how much more fun dressing up is now that I am smaller. I have lost about 145 po... Read more
School Pictures

I work at a school, and my picture ends up on the wall by the office all stinking year long. The first year I was employed at this school, I went to work not knowing that I ... Read more
My Dog is a Terrible Running Partner
Monday, November 02, 2009      9 comments

I am planning on doing the Turkey Trot 10k on Thanksgiving, and I plan on running as much of it as I can. So, I have been running more than I have been walking in the mornings. I am having problems all the time with this. My pants keep fallin... Read more
Spreading the Spark to My Family
Monday, October 19, 2009      9 comments

When I started Sparking, one of my main goals was to be a better role model for my children. I saw some bad habits developing in my children, and I did not want to pass my unhealthy lifestyle on to the next generation. I see signs all the time... Read more

Lately I have been fighting off a cold, and I haven't been getting enough sleep. On top of that, my neighbor behind my house has decided that he wanted to replace our fence with a brick wall, so I am limited to walking my dog since she can't be... Read more
Old Clothing
Monday, October 05, 2009      7 comments

Last night while I was putting some things away in my garage, I spotted a box labeled "Jeannie's Old Clothes". I opened it because I couldn't remember what was in there. I found my prom dress, my peer counseling and art club sweatshirts, and a... Read more
Body Image Issues
Monday, September 28, 2009      14 comments

Today when I got on my Wii fit, I was 201.3 pounds. So, I am figuring, provided everything goes well this week, this will be my last week of being in the 200's. I started at a whopping 340 pounds, and I have been in the 200's pretty much all o... Read more
Untapped Potential
Monday, September 14, 2009      9 comments

The last fortune cookie I opened (didn't eat the cookie, more tasted it) said, something along the lines of "you have only reached a small fraction of your true potential". How true is that for most of us. Then the other day I was listening t... Read more
Lots and Lots of Compliments
Friday, September 11, 2009      7 comments

I lost less weight this summer, than I did last summer (which is fine because it gets a little harder the closer you get to the goal). Last year I went back to school about 30 pounds lighter, and maybe 5 to 10 people noticed that I had lost we... Read more

Next Wednesday, I go back to work and the kids go back to school. As I start a new school year, I just wanted to write down my goals for this years. I know many of my fellow sparkers have great goals for marathons and other athletic competitio... Read more
Hard Work Pays Off
Sunday, August 30, 2009      5 comments

Yesterday I experienced the benefits of my hard work this year. I went rock wall climbing with the Long Beach Sparkers in the morning. Then I went out to a formal dinner in the evening with some people that I knew in college and beyond, but ha... Read more
Good Bye Old Friends, Enjoy Your New Home
Sunday, August 23, 2009      5 comments

I just had a garage sale and got rid of all those sizes that no longer fit. What did not sell is bagged and going to Goodwill. I have to say it was hard for some irrational emotional reason. I know most people are so excited to go down a size ... Read more
