Just figured I'd blog since I hadn't checked in recently. Buying the house is looking like a go - we signed the purchase & sale agreement earlier this week, and we're set to close on August 11! In the meantime, we are trying to save as muc... Read more

Did you know you can run a report that shows your weekly or monthly average calorie intake? Cool! Now I've always been rather proud of the fact that I can apparently eat a lot more than the average Sparker and still lose or maintain, but I've ... Read more

Before SparkPeople my normal weight range used to be the upper 160s to lower 170s. It used to be normal for me to not exercise very much and to overeat frequently. Once I found SparkPeople the roller coaster began. I tried very hard to de... Read more

We're huge Red Sox fans and had such a great time on Friday night enjoying our first Fenway luxury box! Free food and drinks and parking (meaning no long walk to get ther... Read more

When you have Monday off, like many of us did on 5/30, you reap the benefits twice: First, you get a long weekend after looking forward to it all week. Then, you only have to work four days until the NEXT weekend! YAY, it's Friday again already... Read more
I wanna blog more often.

Blogging is such a treat for me. Sometimes I feel like I shouldn't do it because it puts the burden of reading it on all those who are subscribed to my blog, and what I write might be boring! But I've proven to myself that I need to stop taking ... Read more

Just wanted to write and say I'm pretty sure today was my fastest, most hardcore elliptical workout ever. In 65 minutes (60 minutes of fastness plus 5 minutes of cooldown) I did 7.21 miles and 1,019 calories. Yay. This was the first time I've ... Read more

I guess no matter how long I am at this healthy lifestyle/weight management thing, I really can never say that I have it all figured out. Whenever I start to think I can just naturally make good choices all the time, even dabbling in snacky foo... Read more

My name is Susan and I am a binge eater. Last time I wrote I hinted that I'd had flickers of thoughts about binge eating. Well, I've since given in and binged. I guess it's just an area in which I'm vulnerable, and I'm going to always hav... Read more

The other day someone commented on a blog post I wrote three years ago. I'm an old Sparker....I joined in 2006 and have been using the site in full force for the better part of the past 4.5 years. I feel like at this point I have figured out w... Read more
Less than 5 pounds away from goal weight!
Thursday, May 12, 2011      23 comments

Back in early 2010, when I got married, my weight hovered around 145 for a little over a month, so somehow that became my goal weight. Still not sure whether that's my permanent goal weight, but I like how I feel at that weight. Last night ... Read more

Hi! It's been a long time since I've blogged, but that's because there's really nothing new. I am in a great place with both my eating and exercise, and I feel really healthy and happy. I've only lost one pound or so (there are daily fluctuati... Read more

I didn't binge. :) In fact I'm at under 1,600 calories so far today (at 8:20 P.M.) which is quite low for me. I may have a bit more to eat tonight but I'm not really that hungry today after last night's big seder. This afternoon I watched Fat H... Read more
