I had my TOPS weigh in last night. It was the first weigh in of the year and the way the records are kept -- red records gains and black records staying the same or losses -- everyone starts the year off in the black with no regard to whether yo... Read more

I'm back to work today and being honest I kind of wish I had another day off. I'm determined to have a good day though and have my Heathy Choice lunch and carrot stick and apple ready to make lunch go smoothly. I'm proud of finding a 2 mile w... Read more

Hearing a negative voice

This is a petty thing. This is not a true thing, but this is a thing that is going around in my head. I have a nice boss. She is a small, petite person and she is very concious of her appearance. She is a former cheerleader. She confided to me t... Read more

Why do numbers make so much difference?
Friday, June 08, 2012      3 comments

Last week I was highly motivated. I started vigilantly logging in and accumulating the Spark points and tracking my food. I made good choices and I said to myself "Take One Day at a Time" so I wouldn't be overwhelmed by the discipline of it all ... Read more

I feel like I need to say that to the people that had been supporting me when I was doing well at staying on track of my weight loss in the fall. The truth is I need to say it to myself. I am probably my worst critic. I never during the time th... Read more
I got lost
Tuesday, May 29, 2012      0 comments

Somehow between September and May, I got lost. I didn't post anything. I didn't track anything. I did do some stabs at exercise but nothing consistent and I had more binging than I have probably had in the last ten years. I have gone about as... Read more
Feeling Up

Today is the day after my weigh in and I feel very uplifted that I lost again this week. I have spent a lot of energy cleaning my oven (an antique that I bought when my house was being renovated). I am so proud. It came out very nicely. The enam... Read more

Making myself do it!
Saturday, September 03, 2011      1 comments

Both making myself read my chapter in "100 Days of Weight Loss" and posting in my blog were tough today. I found myself busy having fun (the company of my oldest son) and getting some work done around the house. Matthew has a habit of putting ... Read more
