I'm at the point in my weight loss journey where the pounds aren't coming off as quickly as they did in the past and for the first time in all my years of dieting, it doesn't bother me. Maybe because this time, I'm not dieting; I'm fundamentall... Read more

I don't know if it's the warmer weather causing me to wear less clothing or things just coming together, but this past week, I've received so many positive comments about my weight loss. I have to say it feels wonderful. Of course, people ask ... Read more

Just a quick note that I FINALLY got my winter clothes packed away and my spring clothes in the closet just in time for some wonderfully warm weather. I've alluded to this a bunch of times, but I'm having so much fun trying on all my clothes th... Read more

Tuesday, April 05, 2011      2 comments

I am in shock and so excited to share that as of this morning, I am now half way to my goal of losing 50 pounds. If anyone had told me on January 17, 2011 (the day before I started SP) that less than three months later I would have lost 2... Read more

...for my favorite low calorie ice cream treat. At the grocery store yesterday, I noticed the Klondike 100 Calorie Fudge Bars were labelled "discontinued". Words cannot express the sadness I felt at the news. These creamy, delicious bars are ... Read more

Saturday, February 26, 2011      1 comments

I'm at that wonderful point in getting healthy where my fat clothes are falling off me. I have a closet full of great things that will fit in another ten pounds but thought I'd treat myself to a few new pairs of pants at Ann Taylor (they were h... Read more
Bouncing Back From the Flu
Thursday, February 17, 2011      0 comments

I'm happy to report that the flu has left the building (or at least my body) and I'm back to sparking. Other times when I was trying to eat healthier, I would use something like the flu or a break in routine to get away from doing what I knew I... Read more
It's the Flu
Tuesday, February 15, 2011      0 comments

At least now I know why I've felt so miserable for the past four days. Went to the doctor's yesterday and came home loaded with medicine. Unfortunately, the tamiflu made me so sick last night, I fell like I'm starting over again today. I've b... Read more

I wanted to post this now because I realize there will be a day in the near or distant future when things aren't going well for me in terms of diet and exercise and I wanted to remind my future self of how wonderful I feel right now. Dear F... Read more
I Love It When a (Meal) Plan Comes Together
Monday, January 31, 2011      0 comments

As I was entering my meals for today in the meal tracker, I realized how much this part of the SP plan has helped me with my eating habits. Before when I'd "diet", I rarely wrote down what I wrote or if I did it was quick notes on paper. Even ... Read more
I am a Role Model
Friday, January 28, 2011      2 comments

I'm old enough to remember the old Charles Barley commercials for Nike where he proudly asserted, "I am NOT a role model". Well, I wasn't so proud about it, but I've come to realize that for years that was what my actions (or inaction) was sayi... Read more
