The Saga Continues
Sunday, January 25, 2015      4 comments

Five months ago I saw my highest recorded weight again since 2011. It was no bueno. Since that time I have managed to lose 30 lbs and keep off 20 of those 30. I keep gaining and losing the same 10 pounds. It's driving me nuts, but I know why I a... Read more
Food Planning Rambling
Thursday, May 23, 2013      2 comments

I love food. There is definitely enough love to go around to all my food. There are certain times of the month I love food more than usual no matter how much I try to take a time out. So I have to plan my meals in advance, track in advance and... Read more
On the Fence About Blogging and My Sparkpage
Wednesday, May 15, 2013      6 comments

You may or may not have noticed I deleted a bunch of blogs and all pictures except one...and my old goals. My new goals are similar, but I thought I would wipe the slate clean and start fresh with a new page. Then I started reading some old bl... Read more
The Nutritionist
Saturday, September 10, 2011      5 comments

I had my follow up appointment with my nutritionist. It's the session where she tells you what your body comp is and how much you should be eating, etc.... There have been some adjustments to our sessions because most people who go see her hav... Read more
Goal Met = New Challenge
Tuesday, August 23, 2011      6 comments

This is going to involve talk about my fertility so if it’s TMI one should back up ASAP. Yesterday I hit a HUGE goal. I had a positive OPK. Only the second one in two years, the first one being in December of 2009…the OPK that eventually led... Read more

My first day back at spark coincided with the start of the BLC#18 Challenge. For the past 10 weeks I've been motivated and inspired by the weekly challenges and camaraderie of my team (go BLUE). I have been reading The Spark and trying to make... Read more
OMG I met my first goal!
Thursday, August 11, 2011      13 comments

Well, I've had lots of goals along the way. Keeping weekly goals like I mentioned in my last blog help me stay focused, but this one was a weight loss goal and a big one (for me). When I started this journey my first major milestone was to be ... Read more
Month 2 in Review
Sunday, August 07, 2011      7 comments

I'm a few days early, but sometimes you just need to see it. The first month I lost 13 lbs, but my inches lost were not that impressive. I think I lost a lot of water weight and other things, ahem. In month two I have only lost 7.8 lbs, but I... Read more
Sometimes We're Just Not Ready To Learn
Wednesday, August 03, 2011      3 comments

...and then we hear, read or experience it later and it clicks. It's not a new concept for me...I was on the 13 year plan for getting my bachelor's. When I joined SP for the first time I read the story of Sparkpeople. It's a great story, but ... Read more
Adjusting My Focus
Tuesday, August 02, 2011      5 comments

Last week was a kind of wash. I obsessed about the number on the scale while at the same time ignoring the number on the scale when I made food choices. I felt really bad last week mentally, physically and emotionally and I let it take over th... Read more
Break Down, Shake Down
Friday, July 22, 2011      7 comments

It's been a rough week. As the title of my blog implies there was a break down...okay maybe a couple. Tired of feeling tired and struggling to find out what is wrong with my body. The shake down...that was me shakin' it down and then building... Read more

This month I went from averaging 3000 calories a day to averaging 1650 calories a day. I went from walking the dogs 3 times a week (on a good week) to strength training 3 days a week, cardio 4 days a week and often times squeezing in extr... Read more
Low Point/High Point
Wednesday, July 06, 2011      1 comments

Last night I was tired and worn out. I had been feeling drained before I started my hormone supplements and then I felt better. Ten days later the supplements made me tired. LOL. Just can't get it right can I? I suspect I'm a little anemic ... Read more
"Progress Not Perfection"
Sunday, July 03, 2011      1 comments

Tonight made me think back to the motivational email from a fellow sparker with the reminder that we are not trying to achieve perfection. Progress, baby steps, any improvement at all is better than nothing. You can't fail if you don't try, bu... Read more
Eat to Lose
Monday, June 27, 2011      2 comments

Sounds backwards, right...but it's not. I found it ironic that this topic was the reflection for today seeing as how last night I hit bottom over this very thing. I thought I had my trackers adjusted appropriately, but apparently not. After s... Read more
