ROFLMAO...... I spent at least 2 hours writing an entry and when I hit submit I got an error message and it all disappeared. I'm sure the fact that it took 2 hours has something to do with why I got an error message when trying to post but serio... Read more
Trying to Find My Way Back
Sunday, April 13, 2014      2 comments

It happened again. I lost weight last summer because I was focused and stress free and then the school year started. Over the last few months while I worked ridiculous hours during the school year I gained back everything I lost over the summer... Read more
Lost my way....
Sunday, August 25, 2013      3 comments

I've been an eating fool the last few weeks. As soon as I got back into my classroom and got busy I lost the focus on my health. It's been probably 3 weeks and I don't know how much I've gained back but I've definitely gained some back. Which ... Read more

I swore I wasn't going to go into my classroom early this year but I just couldn't stand it!! As soon as I saw other teachers from my school posting updates about their rooms on Facebook I knew I wouldn't be able to stay away. Unlike the last... Read more
Feeling Stronger Today

I made good choices today, not perfect but good. MUCH better choices than yesterday. I have to constantly remind myself that I'm not working towards perfection and I'm not going to lose this weight over night. It is only going to happen through ... Read more

Why is this such a struggle? As I do with all weight loss journeys I start off with a bang and then slowly start to fizzle until I eventually gain back all the weight I lost--- plus a few pounds more. I don't want to live my life in a vacu... Read more

Will there ever be a day when I can have a package of cookies, a bag of chips or any of the other numerous trigger foods in my house? I started this most recent journey in June and have lost 24 pounds. I know this is a fabulous accomplishment a... Read more
Fear of Failure
Friday, July 19, 2013      2 comments

I was disappointed when the scale only showed a loss of .4 this morning. I know I should be happy the scale is moving in the right direction but I want it moving that way QUICKER! I was in a funk all morning about it but I didn't stray from my... Read more
My First Diet Hiccup.....this time around.
Tuesday, July 16, 2013      3 comments

It was bound to happen. I've been sailing along, staying within my calorie range, controlling my overeating urges, even adding in some exercise and then BAM (that's me hitting the proverbial diet wall). I had a terrible time falling asleep... Read more
Losing Focus?

All the times I've lost weight in the past (and there have been many), I was gung-ho in the beginning but as soon as I lost 20 pounds and my clothes started feeling loose I'd revert back to my bad habits! Well, I've lost 19 pounds and my ... Read more
Independence Day--- Freedom
Thursday, July 04, 2013      4 comments

I remember when I quit smoking I was surprised by the freedom it brought me. Freedom from worry. Did I remember to put a pack...and a lighter in my purse? Do I have enough cigarettes? If not, do I have enough money to pick up a pack? Will I have... Read more

I was looking forward to jumping on the scale today. I felt like I lost at least 2 pounds, if not more. Imagine my surprise when the scale said I'd lost a measly half pound. A HALF POUND?! How can that be? I'll admit, I feel my past obsession... Read more
What's Different This Time?
Friday, June 28, 2013      6 comments

I woke up feeling strong today. I knew I was going to have a high calorie lunch with a friend. I had planned for it, been thinking of it and had every intention of cleaning everything off my plate (and I did). Because I had planned for it I had... Read more
Struggling but Hanging in There!
Tuesday, June 25, 2013      5 comments

It happens every time. About 3 weeks in I start struggling. Today is the first day since I started Sparking again that I am struggling not to go over my calorie limit. I'm not really hungry. It's late and I should just go to bed but here I sit p... Read more
Defining Success
Saturday, June 22, 2013      6 comments

This time around I'm learning to define my success in ways other than the amount of weight I lose every week. Believe me I'll be jumping up and down tomorrow if I have a decent weigh-in but eventually weight loss slows down and I have to rememb... Read more
