A weighty decision
Wednesday, April 30, 2008      5 comments

If there's one thing my dogs try to teach me, it's to stop and smell the roses. And the weeds, and the grass, and the garbage . . . well, you get the picture. In other words, don't look at the big picture! I'd like to lose, ultimately, some... Read more

Ever wonder why you might see a weight gain when you're just sure you've been good? Think about whether or not you ate out just a few days before you weighed in -- it doesn't have to be the day before, it may take a few days for your body t... Read more
To weigh or not to weigh?

For those who don't know me, I don't own a scale. I don't have access to a scale anywhere. Scales make me depressed. They rarely say what I want them to say, or what I think they ought to say. I will be visiting my mom on mother's day, as t... Read more

That statement can apply to so many things in life, but in this case, I'm talking about exercise. Let me tell you about me as a kid. I was the biggest couch potato ever. In grade school, I'd sit with a friend of mine who couldn't do gym jus... Read more
Time for you

That's the challenge on one of my sparkteams. Even though I'm not working, it's still hard to find time for me. I've got 4 animals always clamoring to be loved, to be walked, to be fed. Not quite the same as kids, but still time-consuming. ... Read more
Fitness mantra
Wednesday, April 23, 2008      5 comments

I think I read this on SP, but I'm not sure. Wherever I picked it up, it's a good idea that I'm going to try to incorporate. You need a fitness mantra. You know those times when you think you just can't take another step, do another pushup,... Read more

You are such a loser. You'll never be able to lose weight. And even if you do lose weight, you know that you'll just put it all right back on. And then some. You've never succeeded before -- what makes you think this time will be diffe... Read more
Are you lost?

It's funny how Oprah had Mariah Shriver on the other day, and she said she lost herself when she became first lady of California. When she could no longer indentify herself as a journalist, she just didn't know what she was. It's funny beca... Read more

Isn't it amazing how just a little weight loss can make you feel soooooooooo good? I've been feeling like things are fitting a bit better lately, so I was surprised that when I measured this morning, there was no change -- and I only measur... Read more

Thursday, April 17, 2008      5 comments

Diets don't work. They don't work because they're usually not something you can stick to forever. Oh sure, they might work in the short-term -- but will you be able to keep the weight off? Can you eat like you're eating for the rest of your life... Read more
