I need a new scale, do you like yours?
Wednesday, August 29, 2012      1 comments

My scale is broken (and no I don't mean I think it's lying and I'm really only 150). Today I got on and it said 229. I started at 250 so I was elated! But I wanted to double check since I didn't really believe it. The next time it said 230, ... Read more
I'm sleeping the weight off
Monday, August 20, 2012      3 comments

Yes, that's right, I'm losing weight in my sleep. Or rather, I'm finally sleeping so I'm finally losing weight. It turns out that inadequate sleep will completely stall weight loss and sometimes make you GAIN weight even if you are doing every... Read more
My experience with Sensa
Thursday, August 16, 2012      5 comments

I keep seeing the adds for Sensa on here, and I just can't keep this to myself any more. I tried Sensa, and this is my experience. I can't say what Sensa will do to you or anyone else. This is only a recount of my experience. I'm not looking... Read more
Six years of SP and I finally hit 10k points!
Sunday, August 05, 2012      2 comments

That was cool. I've been on SP for years but only just started really using it this year, and hitting 10k points made me excited to keep going. I want to get my next trophy! Getting all those points wasn't just to get the points, though. ... Read more
Revelations and Tool Time with Kati
Thursday, August 02, 2012      2 comments

This morning while I was getting the dog his breakfast I had a revelation about my own eating. I realized that one of my dreams has finally come true: I now think of food as a tool more than as a goal. This was so exciting for me! Most an... Read more
FattyBrain, Macaroni, and Baggy Pants
Tuesday, July 31, 2012      3 comments

For those of you following along, I did go to the doctor a couple of weeks ago and had some tests done. Much to my amazement, I am not even close to pre-diabetic. My A1c was totally normal, and my fasting glucose was the envy of my family. My... Read more
8th time going, 1st time in control
Monday, July 23, 2012      3 comments

Every year I go camping in July with a bunch of people for 4 days. Every year it has been a food-fest with more than any one person should have access to, plus we tend to drink the whole time, too. I have always felt gross when I get home - ov... Read more
The Adventures of Fatty-Brain
Wednesday, July 11, 2012      2 comments

While it may sound a bit schizophrenic, I’ve decided that compartmentalizing and personifying my highly ingrained unhealthy habits makes it much easier to say no. So, I now have a fatty-brain and a healthy-brain. Fatty-brain is impulsive, shor... Read more
Not all rock bottoms look the same
Tuesday, June 19, 2012      7 comments

Before you get all excited and look for pictures, by rock bottoms I don't mean buns of steel. I mean that place in your life that feels like the ultimate low and you have to change to survive... or else (dun dun dun duuuuuun). I realized today... Read more
Exercise Confession: I'm a kitchen dancer
Sunday, June 10, 2012      2 comments

This really is a confession because no one gets to see this happen, which is probably a very good thing because they may hurt something from laughing so hard. I even hide it from my husband by strategically doing it only when he is elsewhere in... Read more
Idiot's Guide to Using SparkRecipes
Sunday, January 29, 2012      3 comments

I have to rant for a moment because this irritates me more than people who don't understand that on-ramps are for accelerating to freeway speeds. There appear to be some "Sparkers" (trust me I wanted to throw out my entire arsenal of insults in... Read more
Being primal seems to really suit me
Thursday, January 26, 2012      1 comments

I've been following The Primal Blueprint from MarksDailyApple.com for a little while now, albeit somewhat loosely, and recently I tightened it down to under 85g of carbs a day. I try for 110g of NATURAL fats and 125g of protein to round it out.... Read more
I've gone quasi-paleo and it didn't hurt at all
Thursday, September 29, 2011      2 comments

My brand-spanking-new husband and I began transitioning to a paleo diet this week. In case this is a foreign concept, it means we are trying to expunge processed and manufactured foods from our lives and stick to what humans ate for 100,000+ ye... Read more
This just in: I deserve to be loved, and by me of all people
Tuesday, August 23, 2011      3 comments

So here it is, 8/24/2011, and I'm writing the introduction section on my SparkPage AGAIN. I went away for many months and didn't want to admit to myself or my tracker, not what I eat or how I am slothful, but rather exactly how little I have be... Read more
