Cranking it up a notch for the holidays
Thursday, December 11, 2008      1 comments

Well, in addition to my usual goals, I've added a goal to log at least 35 points a day for the rest of the month. If I do the things to log that many points (and it's really not THAT many, is it?), that should keep me on track and focused as I'... Read more

I walked four miles today. Only ate half of what was set before me at lunch (with only two bites of the chocolate cheesecake... but they were the "best" two bites!) The lady sitting next to me said "This looks so good, but I don't need it." I... Read more

Sunday, November 02, 2008      6 comments

I'm going to DC for a conference. There are 3 evening functions and two luncheons that I'll be attending where they just plop food down in front of you on a plate. Food someone else has selected. Food that's usually REALLY good, too. Oh my! ... Read more

Well, I knew I had likely gained some weight, but wasn't quite sure where I was... I've regained... but I'm not going to beat myself up. I'm not going to be stressed out about it. I'm just going to get back to what I know works and do something ... Read more
I weigh less this New Year's Eve than I did last New Year's Eve!
Monday, December 31, 2007      0 comments

I haven't been able to say that in a few years... and it feels really good. I lost 20 pounds that "stayed lost" in 2007. I know I can lose 10 more in 2008 that will "stay lost." I am very happy about this and I am grateful to all of my Spark ... Read more
