An evening of realization
Saturday, July 21, 2012      1 comments

So last night I was craving some frozen yogurt, and I wouldn't let myself get any, thinking "I'm fat enough...I don't need to eat that." (I know, not a very kind thought to have) But then I became so focused on wanting it, that I couldn't get it... Read more

As I put my belt on this morning, I realized I might need to get a new, smaller one since I need to go farther than the last hole will allow. When I started SP (I think it was 2, 2 1/2 years ago??), I was on the last hole of the belt-- just on t... Read more

I feel like I have been doing pretty well- maintaining a +/- 4lb weight change over most of the last year. I'm now at 163.5. This is 21 lbs less than my highest weight when I started in April 2008 ... Read more

Last Wednesday I was gung-ho to get back with the program: I wrote a couple blogs, drank my 8 glasses of water, entered all my food, stayed w/in my calorie range, got fruits and veggies in, and got myself to the gym even though it was 8pm. I h... Read more

Ok, so I started thinking it's too bad that I don't have any "before" pictures to compare with now to really show the change...but then I thought why does it matter, I probably looked pretty similar a year, 2 years, 3 years ago... Just fo... Read more

i was looking at my Sparkpage today, and i saw a comment from months ago when one of my SP buddies congratulated me for making it into the 160's-- it's full of exclamation marks and all sorts of emoticons. Wow-i guess it was a big milestone...k... Read more

I weighed in this morning and lost again (yay!). When I realized that I'd now lost 16 pounds and have just 13 more to go to reach my goal, my first thought was "WOW--how did that happen??" hahaha. As if I haven't been working hard at this for... Read more

I'm soooo excited that I'm finally in the 160's!!! It has been 2 years since I've been here. Clothes that I bought last summer are starting to be too big! I bought a shirt a few months ago that I really liked it but it was way too tig... Read more

If any team can see the humor in this, then I know my RRRGLP team will... I had to laugh at it all yesterday and it started with the" I will...and I won't...." on our team page. I'd posted that "I won't give up" b'cus I was kinda frustrate... Read more

1,184. That's how many fitness minutes I've done so far in May (and 2 days still to go!). I can't even tell you when was the last time I did that much exercise. YAY me!! ... Read more

I started SP 2 weeks ago. This week felt like a frustrating one. I'd have 2-3 "good" days staying within my ranges followed by a "bad" day where I went over. I'd feel guilty and beat myself up about it. Look at my stomach and think it just w... Read more
