The Ridiculous Loser - May 25, 2010
Tuesday, May 25, 2010      6 comments

Tonight I watched the season ending to America's addiction with "The Biggest Loser". If ever there was a show on television to set a horrible message for weight loss, this one is it. It's a guilty pleasure, though, to watch a 526 (FIVE HUNDRED... Read more
One For The Books - April 20, 2010
Tuesday, April 20, 2010      1 comments

I caught a cold Sunday night, and still feel a bit run down, but not sick enough to stay home from work. It would be too difficult with a major project ongoing now at the hospital, so the rule of thumb for me is, "No temperature, then off to wo... Read more
Post Passover Post Mortem - April 10, 2010
Saturday, April 10, 2010      1 comments

I'm sitting here this morning, reading the words of a man's "trip to half." Love the imagery of that one! Even love the choo choo on his Spark Page titled "It's a Trip To 'State of Mind'". Who says SparkPeople folks are not creative? Since b... Read more
Passover And Cholesterol - Sunday March 28, 2010
Sunday, March 28, 2010      1 comments

With so little time to pause, I'm sitting here drinking my water (good move!) and musing over the entry of a young woman who lost 65 pounds with SparkPeople. Passover is almost upon us, which is an extremely high cholesterol holiday by its very... Read more

Sometimes in the course of a day, we come across something so moving that we bookmark it to remember for later. This sent to me is one of those things: Blessings... Read more
Labor Day Affirmation - September 7, 2009
Monday, September 07, 2009      0 comments

It's been far too long since my last blog entry. I spent some time this morning reading all of Birdie's posts here on SparkPeople. She reminded me that setbacks can be turned around. One interesting point she made was if one plateaus to keep ... Read more
The Scale Is Back! - May 21, 2008
Wednesday, May 21, 2008      0 comments

What a delight to open the door today to find a big box from Missouri, knowing that my scale had ended its journey, and was back home once more. (Well, actually a brand new one, which replaced the one sent. It does make one wonder if the inces... Read more
Dreary Monday But Laden With Good News - April 28, 2008
Monday, April 28, 2008      0 comments

Last night, on a lark, I tried on my "fat" jeans. They fit! It's hard to imagine that I allowed myself to go beyond the fat jeans, but life is what it is, and when you don't pay attention, working 12 plus hours a day, it creeps up on you. Wit... Read more
Moment Of Truth - April 26, 2008
Saturday, April 26, 2008      0 comments

Since I couldn't get an accurate weight today, I'm holding on for dear life to the five pounds already noted at the four-week mark, two days ago. I sent the scale back for repairs today. It cost double what the company estimated to ship back, bu... Read more
To Weigh Or Not To Weigh, That Is The Question - April 24, 2008
Thursday, April 24, 2008      0 comments

This, for me, is an interesting question: I fear that my bathroom scale is off, and I'm not quite sure where I stand now. Since starting this quest a month ago, I have added a lot of new and good habits. I know that I am heading in the right ... Read more
My Progress Report - April 13, 2008
Sunday, April 13, 2008      0 comments

I love the accountability the website forces you to make. I can actually see where my errors have been in the food distribution department. After two and a half weeks of this I must say I am getting better at this. Water is surely one of the... Read more
Don't Plan, Do! - April 7, 2008
Monday, April 07, 2008      0 comments

"Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do." -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Addendum (April 28, 2008): When I found this quote, I was delighted, because it reflected what my mother used to say, "Don't plan.... Read more
