One of the hardest things: Resetting Goals
I can sit and think and hope, wish on stars, eyelashes and dandelions, think of methods and do research, but if I don't plan and then follow the plan, it is all just words.
I have been on SparkPeople since 2010. I have lost and gained. I ha... Read more
I'm done with the scale
This one's hard for me. As most of us here in SparkPeople world, I have spent most of my life on the diet roller coaster.
I have found that the scale is my nemesis. I have used it in the past poorly and against my better health.
I'm ... Read more
I cleaned out my friend list today ~sigh~
80-somethin' people down to 34. It was nothing personal. Just a question of purging space. Every one of the people on that list has been inactive for over 150 days (some for over 1000!).
There were several on there who had removed, or had ... Read more

There it was, black and white. The numbers I told myself I'd never see again. EVER.
I told myself I'd never see any number over 200 again (I also said that at 180 and 190 BTW).
I should have recognized the signs and listened ... Read more

Frustration and the scale.
I am a Scottish Highland Game athlete. I am working on gaining strength right now. I am also working on losing the gut that I acquired over last season.
It is a difficult task trying to lose weight. It is even a more difficult task trying ... Read more
Eat more to lose weight??? Yep, for me it worked!!!
This last year I went a little crazy. Ate too much, drank too much, gained back almost 30 lbs. It was the Highland games and there was beer and pasties and haggis. Dinners and camping and sweets. I did get injured. Holidays happened (seriously p... Read more

Starting over... again
It was a long season. I worked out. I golfed. I threw in Highland Games. I also drank too much. Ate too much. Ate the wrong things.

I've been fairly quiet on sp lately. I'm still plugging along. I'm still here.

DietBet for Boston
