Hi, gang. Let's see, where to start... while still keeping this fairly short... lol Back in early April (maybe late March) I messed up my lower back and had to stop working out for about 6 weeks. I dragged that out to 8 out of lazin... Read more

06/01/2009 After 5-6 months away and 25 pounds regained, I am back. I finally gave in and re-set all of my Spark stuff today. It was hard to see my old numbers go "bye bye" especially since sometimes it seems like it must have all just been... Read more

It seems several people I know on SP are struggling right now. I was having problems this past month or so, but I seem to be starting to come back out of it this past week. I ran across this quote tonight - it reminds me of how I felt when I r... Read more

Rambling thoughts on motivation
Thursday, September 18, 2008      2 comments

A Sparkbuddy emailed today and asked what keeps me motivated. The question stumped me at first, as I haven't felt all that motivated lately. But then I started trying to respond and had some thoughts that I need to reflect upon further, so I d... Read more
Curse you, candy corn... curse you!

Okay, so in reality, I am cursing my own moment of weakness in putting the blasted bag in my cart... and then opening them in the car. On the plus side, I did throw the remainder in the outside trash can once I finally arrived home... but I'd a... Read more

Let's see how the pic comes out before I add more than that. - OK, small, but still somewhat readable. The items in green are ones that have improved since last time. The ones in red are those that are worse. Now, they're still not bad... Read more
Return on investment

I saw this on SIRENALATINA's post and loved it - " Interval training is like putting your savings into a high return investment account. Low intensity aerobics is like hiding it under your mattress. Both will work, but the return you get is r... Read more

It's time to recommit. My one year anniversary with SP is this week, and I haven't really given it my full effort or energy in the past 6 months. It makes me nuts when I consider how well I did the first 6 months and how relatively effortless i... Read more

I'm on the FlyLady's email list, and her email today (while inspiring enough on its own) got me to thinking about Independence Day in terms of our weight. I'm going to copy parts of her email and then add my thoughts. ------------------------... Read more
Early memory of weight issues
Tuesday, June 10, 2008      5 comments

I'm not sure why it popped into my head today, but suddenly I found myself remembering something from when I was about 7-8 years old. I was with a group of girls from school (my Brownie troop), and we were riding in the back of someone's van on... Read more

I renewed my driver's license today and asked if I could have the picture from the old one, since I'd lost weight in the past year. Take a look... The one on the left is from my old license, issued May 2004. The one on the right is from toda... Read more
