Not This Time, Wormwood!
Oh, no! Not again! That old
is getting into my head again and I'm starting to find excuses for not trac... Read more
Feeling Good - Feeling Thankful!
Today was one of those "Ah Ha" days when I actually could feel and see the progress I've made over the last month. I am down 6 lbs. and, while that may not seem like much, on my 5'0" frame, it means a whole size smaller. It also means not feeli... Read more
How many of us log in on Spark People every day and read an article, or several, expounding the virtues of staying active and fit? I know I read at least 2 to 3 but the question is how seriously do I take them. I saw a real-life example of how s... Read more
WANT DESSERT! WANT CHOCOLATE! GOTTA HAVE IT!
Today I'm blogging a little bit off the beaten path for me. I'm usually about emotions, Ah Ha Moments, and faith. Today, I'm about dessert and how to have your cake and eat it too - without guilt. What I want to share with you is a little desser... Read more
Why I Made It Through My BFF's Birthday Party
Last night was the first real "event" I've been to since I got serious and adopted my new "Sparkatude." For those of you who don't know what a Sparkatude is, it's a type of attitude that will enable you to be a winner in the area of weight loss ... Read more
I Wasn't Planning on Blogging Today......
I was looking at some comments on my Spark Page photos of my two little dogs and it hit me - my dogs are wiser than I am.
Sometimes I fall into "pity party" mode and think about how hard the journey is and how long it takes. Looking at thes... Read more
It's About Finding Your Personal Best Path
We know that this isn't about dieting - it's about changing our lifestyle and understanding that weight loss is a journey. The journey is truly an adventure and as we go along, we learn many things, including what works and doesn't work for ours... Read more
Do I Like Myself?
I've been asking myself that a lot over the last couple of days. Looking back at my old blogs, I wonder why I didn't follow through with the things I said I was going to do. It wasn't because I didn't mean what I said when I said it - I think I ... Read more
For Everyone Who Responded To My Pain
First, I have to tell you all that I had over 200 responses to my last two blogs: "In Memory of Trixie" and "So Much More Than A Diet." Although I began trying to answer each person who commented on these blogs individually, I soon found it impo... Read more
IN MEMORY OF TRIXIE
July 8th will always be a day I remember because today I lost my Pug, Trixie - my friend, my companion and my loyal doggie of 15 years. Sadly, I had to make the decision whether to let her continue with her pain or let her go. ... Read more
Blessings in Disguise
There's an old saying, "You never miss the water 'til the well runs dry." I can attest to the truth of this because, while I did exercise, I never liked it much, or looked forward to it. Then I fell on my back and, over a period of time, I sta... Read more
So Much More Then A Diet
It's been a while since I wrote a Blog Entry but I felt the time was right to express some thoughts about my life as a Spark People member. Over the years I've been on Spark, I have made a lot of friends. I have seen people come and go and I, m... Read more
For All My Wonderful Spark Friends!
Yesterday, my DH and I experienced a miracle. A nodule that was seen by Pt-scan in my hubby's left lung was to be biopsied to see if it was cancer. That is scary enough but, in this case, DH is a 5 yr. lung cancer survivor. He also had a battle... Read more
A Very Happy Birthday
In 16 days, Lord willing, I will celebrate my 64th birthday - and I am actually looking forward to it! ... Read more
