New Computer... but at work
Today I got my old laptop at school replaced by a slightly less old huge chunky PC that takes up way more room on my desk but it's sooooo much faster! I hadn't even realized how much time I'd been wasting just waiting for my computer all the ti... Read more
Longest Spark Hiatus Ever
So apparently a six-year-old laptop is so old that it's hard to find replacement parts for it. I considered getting a new laptop, but instead I came over to my parents' house, which is where I am right now, with my day off from school due to sn... Read more
Hi everyone! My trip to the Dominican Republic was WONDERFUL! Unfortunately, as soon as I got back, my laptop charger somehow set fire to itself and a new one is being ordered online, so I haven't been able to get back on SparkPeople........we... Read more
Days 5, 4, 3, 2, 1!
Sorry I fell off the face of er...SparkPeople there for a few days! Major major busy-ness at school the past few days - I am a special education teacher and we have had SO MANY team meetings and evaluations lately!! On top of that, my school's... Read more
Six days to go.......
And I took an unplanned cheat day. I guess it was inevitable - I was dreaming about cookies, cake, and ice cream, I was watching my boyfriend eat things I desperately wanted (he gets those cute little single-serving Reeces Friendly's sundaes yo... Read more
Vacation starts one week from today!
I weighed 143 again today, so it wasn't just a fluke yesterday. Blah, but oh well.
I've been doing REALLY well with bedtime. Trying to save money, not going out at night, making my own dinner rather than going to restaurants, and sticking... Read more
So I've been bikini bootcamping now for two weeks. My first week I lost 13 pounds. My second week? I GAINED about two pounds. I weighed 143 today! I've been working so hard....I cannot fathom why I would have gained weight. :(
I actual... Read more
141.2 today. Ate 1500 calories and then had a small glass of red wine - so probably just under 1600? Day off from the gym.... Read more
All week I've been waking up before my alarm (!) but today I've felt a bit tired regardless. It's probably hunger building up. I just increased my calories from 1200 to 1500 the other day, but if I keep feeling like this (another day or so) I ... Read more
11 days until vacation
Doing well. 140.8 today. Ran 5 and 1/2 miles, nice and easy on the treadmill. Ate just under 1500 calories.... Read more
Only 12 days to go!
I felt soooo much better last night after I added the extra calories (an extra clementine, diet hot cocoa, and unsweetened soymilk). What a relief to be eating enough that I'm not constantly thinking about food!
Today I weighed 141.0. I g... Read more
13 days to go.
So hungry. Whether I'm going to be on a beach in 13 days or not, it's time to up my calories a bit. All along I'd had it in the back of my mind that I would be willing to adjust if I couldn't handle the bottom of the range (ie - 1200) anymore.... Read more
Two Weeks to Go!
Happy February everybody! I was hoping I'd wake up to the 130s today but it wasn't meant to be...140.6. It'll happen soon though. I know this because I am still pushing it like crazy.
Last night my boyfriend's parents came over to his pl... Read more
One week down, 15 days to go!

I am afraid to announce how much weight I lost this week because I have a feeling someone's gonna... Read more

16 days to go. This is hard. I'm glad it's temporary.
Of course a good healthy lifestyle/weight management plan needs to be something you can live with long term. "Never do anything to lose weight you're not willing to do for the rest of your life."
BUT, sometimes a TEMPORARY challenge is wha... Read more
