First, just for my own record, a bit of history....
I am not new to Spark.... I'm quite the old timer, having originally joined Spark eons ago. At least 12 years ago, possibly more, originally. Bopped in and out, even deleted my first accou... Read more
Not "polished" but very effective, for those wanting to try without buying a DVD. This is by a woman who does the videos for personal enjoyment.

First, I managed the intro and 5 minute warm up of my new Chair Boxing DVD, and I must say,
while I could only do 5 minutes, I am choosing to see it as “I have somewhere to go from here” rather than “just” 5 minutes.
Second, it is SCARY ... Read more
The funny thing is, I actually earned it at last week's weigh in, but I didn't think I had. I had my beginning TOPS weigh wrong in my memory bank. So today I was a full pound and a half loss over what I needed for the charm!! So I definitely ear... Read more
Okay, when it comes to my weight loss, I'm a bit of a geek. Or nerd, if you prefer. I love data and numbers and math. Always have. So it makes sense I would bring that love and fascination to the project of weight loss.

I've had it with this Spark Activity Tracker. Sure, it's oh so cool they way it uploads the data wirelessly in the background. But at the end of the day, if the data is 75% INACCURATE AND INCOMPLETE, what good is it?

I never thought it was possible. Not for me, anyway. I'm a turtle with weight loss. And a re-gainer. Over the long term, though, I am down 59 pounds from my highest weight of several years ago. When I've had partial regains, it's when I've gotte... Read more
Blasted that concrete wall to smitherines, and I ain't lookin' back! Sayanaro, baby!
I am waiting for tomorrow to reveal the specific numbers, but they are big and beautiful! Why tomorrow? Because tomorrow marks my one month of my new way o... Read more
My body hit a wall 2 weeks ago. It's a big wall. I've hit up against it many times in trying to get under it. So I realized that I could either stand there and try chipping away at a concrete wall with a plastic spoon, or I could back up, take a... Read more
This is REALLY working for me!!!!!
I've never had this kind of consistent success, week after week, with no big struggle or feeling of deprivation!!!!!
I'm loving it!
So not just what I eat, but when I eat and how (in)frequently I... Read more
Here’s a head’s up. In looking for a higher fiber, higher protein, lower carb option for wraps and tortillas that also do not not not not contain soy flour, I found two. One is the Flatouts brand of wraps but ONLY in their LIGHT versions. All th... Read more
Biggest Loser of the Week for my TOPS meeting today, and I will most likely be Biggest Loser of the Month with 8 pounds net loss. That will be determined next week, though.
For today, I'm thrilled! I finally got my bracelet and first charm ... Read more
Well, I haven't been blogging here on Spark, or anywhere for that matter, for months. After spiraling around in a 6 pound scale vortex for 4 months, it was clear I needed to change something! So I've done a bit of tweaking to my food plan.

The long, hard winter is stepping aside to make way for spring and a new start!
Since moving 1200 miles last fall, it's been a challenge getting my legs under me again! I was doing well until December. January and February were a real strug... Read more
