On top of some work stress, I found something odd and kind of worrying earlier. Note that I'm an anxious, squeamish person.
I've had this mole on my upper left thigh for forever. It's always been round, raised, firm and brown. Over the year... Read more
...apparently it must have been water weight - when I finally decided that yeah, I'll re-weigh myself on Thursday...I was at 172 lbs. :-)
There is no dance class today (Saturday) - I hope I can manage!!!!... Read more
Well, it's nearly 1:30 AM. I managed to pack a healthy lunch and snack for Thursday so I don't die when Zumba rolls around. The only problem is, I haven't done my 30 (10 stretching, 20 dancing) yet tonight. And quite honestly, I don't know that ... Read more
Yes, the scale read 175.
Yes, it was hard to really push the last few weeks because of weak jelly-legs.
Yes, you still tried.
And yes, that may be water weight, you did feel bloaty.
Keep doing tea and oatmeal.
Keep walking...walk Le... Read more
Slightly flustered with myself.
Ate breakfast after I woke up, had my lunch pre-packed, took it to work with me, did not take it on our field trip. Had snack when said trip was over (while still on premises) because I was close to flatlinin... Read more
Went over my calories by roughly 420-ish today? Oopsies. Had breakfast/tea, but did not pack a good work lunch (cold Spaghetti-o's, an apple, and some almonds) - was most definitely dragging energy-wise this afternoon. Pre-packed my lunch for to... Read more
So when I got my sandwich at Subway today, I decided to get egg whites instead of my normal turkey. The egg white patties have no cholesterol in them, because, well...they're egg whites.
I chose the 9-grain whole wheat bread.
I chose a... Read more
At weigh-in, I discovered I am now at 174.4 - I lost a pound, even with being really edgy about gaining weight over my period. Instead of feeling terrible that it was one pound, I was very, very happy - hooray for not gaining!
I'm really ho... Read more
I usually have oatmeal with either honey or brwn sugar, with strawberries and peaches (sometimes with yogurt)...or pumpkin with spices.
Today, I decided to do something different...I added a sliced banana, some brown sugar, cinnamon, a spl... Read more
...wow. Just saw an ad for Carl's Jr. Jalepeno Patty Melt...which apparently comes with a free Oreo ice cream sandwich. Now, I've wanted ice cream for a good two weeks, but...seeing that much not-so-good-for-you food in one place made my tummy d... Read more
Ugh, today was gross, wasn't it? I'm so sorry. You already know that Matt stayed up for 29 hours, which made it a big shame that you didn't want to go for a walk by yourself. You barely cleared a half-mile on foot today. Your per... Read more
I found this via another SparkMember, and thought it was really, really cool! Could this be my 170 lb. reward?

HOLY CRAP I DIDN'T EXPECT THAT OMGOMGOMG~
Sorry, just excited!
I weighed in at work today, and I am at 175.6. That is amazing to me. Since I've started Spark in 2010, my lowest all-time weight has been 175 - I've mostly hov... Read more
It's the week before a familiar (and usually unwelcome) visitor shows up, and of course, I'm feeling it. Crampy, emotionaly, tired blah-ness. I hate it. But, who doesn't.
It's been a weird, lazy-ish past few days, and my weekly routine is a... Read more
