I fought with myself to get out the door to swim today. It's not that i wasn't going to do any exercise, it's just that I didn't know WHICH aerobic exercise I wanted to do. I love my new DVD, it's a great workout. I feel it does the most for me.... Read more

I can get discouraged when the scale doesn't budge. But something I am excited about right now is that my pants are literally falling off! Granted they were my fat pants, and they have a ribbed band instead of a firm waist band, not elastic eith... Read more

Of the many times I've dieted, I've had two times that I didn't have a real "diet" mentality. Instead I've had the attitude that this is a lifestyle change. The first time was in 2000 when i got utterly disgusted with myself and weighted 210 pou... Read more

I find myself getting all caught up in recording everything. I have an iPhone and the App for SP, so I am constantly pulling out my phone and logging my water, food and exercise. But sometimes I wonder if anyone else feels so busy recordin... Read more

Well, last entry I talked about my temptation to eat out of stress. I was successful in beating it, with suggestions by fellow Sparkers. Thanks. What helped the most was talking about it with my husband and then going for a swim. That really cle... Read more

I have a real hard time taking a rest day from exercise. I'm not sure if it's because I'm afraid if I stop for one day it will lead to two, then three, etc. I guess i'm afraid I'll lose my momentum. But I have pushed for 10 weeks and haven't tak... Read more
