The Best Compliment Ever!
Monday, September 27, 2010      3 comments

Today I received the best compliment, ever! I saw someone I haven't seen in a few months. She said, "wow, you've really lost a lot of weight" (not the best compliment ever yet:-). I thanked her for noticing and told her I've lost 30 pound... Read more

Sunday, September 26, 2010      15 comments

...and I'm so excited! It seems like it's taken FOREVER for me to hit this mark:-) When I think about how far I have left to go, 30 pounds is nothing. But then I sit back and really think about it, and 30 pounds is a LOT! I've worked HAR... Read more
Notice and Celebrate the Small Things - A little TMI!:-)
Wednesday, September 22, 2010      4 comments

I've felt a little bad the past couple of weeks because of hormones (PMS:-). I get very emotional then and as I get older, PMS goes on longer sometimes. And this means that the emotions go on longer - not good for an emotional eater! But ... Read more

Success!
Wednesday, September 08, 2010      5 comments

Today was a good day - healthwise:-) I started out by being tempted, in the food and drink category. I did give in and have a not-so-healthy but not loaded with calories breakfast. I had been catching up with my sparkfriends and had read ... Read more

Calorie Tracking
Thursday, September 02, 2010      3 comments

So, I now have the longer-term, one-year plan of letting go of 100 pounds. My shorter, September plan is 10 pounds. I realized yesterday that I hadn't gone into SP to let it tell me what I needed to eat, calorie-wise, to make that goal. E... Read more

Balance - Day 2
Wednesday, August 04, 2010      2 comments

So, day two in my quest for balance wasn't quite like day one - surprise, surprise:-) On the health front, I got in my 8 glasses of water, I tracked my food, and I again stayed within my calorie range - woo hoo! But I got in no exercise. ... Read more
Balance Attempt - Day 1
Tuesday, August 03, 2010      4 comments

Okay, so I'm really trying to focus on balance right now. I tend to be an all-or-nothing person. I focus on what I focus on - I mean, if I'm focussed on weight loss, everything else goes out the window (kinda!). If I'm focussed on a project a... Read more

Battle Day 4
Friday, June 18, 2010      4 comments

Day 4 of the battle felt like it was a test of sorts. And while I can't say that I did perfectly, I'd give myself a B+ and be thrilled with it. I worked HARD for it:-) I mentioned in my blog yesterday that I peeked at my weight and had lo... Read more

The 8-week battle, that is! I've joined a new team - the 8-week battle #9! It's starts today, and I'm so excited! The timing was PERFECT! It's 8 weeks (+1 day!) to my birthday, and I want to push to lose 15 pounds before then, so this is... Read more
