New Year's Resolutions
Sunday, January 01, 2012      3 comments

1. Lose weight. I want to reach 175 by year end. This is doable. Even without paying attention the last month or so, I'm still under 200 (198.8 this morning, despite constipation) so I think I can easily do 2 pounds a month. 2. Log into sparkp... Read more
Ask and ye shall receive

5 days ago, when my scale picked up my highest weight in recent (last three months) history, I set a goal for myself of being at 202 (again) before the end of the month. I will tell you that it seemed impossible. Well, if all my impossible goals... Read more
Immediate Success!

So, focusing in on my weight loss goals yesterday, I got on my scale today and it said 203.4, more than 2 pounds less than yesterday. Now, I knew yesterday was a fluke that it was so high, but I am taking this to mean that going back to stage 1 ... Read more
Motivation, here motivation
Tuesday, October 11, 2011      1 comments

I guess it's no secret (since I keep telling everyone) that my motivation has been seriously lacking since basically August, which is why I'm on a plateau. I haven't been tracking my food. I've barely been tracking my steps. Needless to sa... Read more
199 in September
Thursday, September 01, 2011      2 comments

Monday morning, I got on my scale and there, for my personal happiness, was my goal number, 202. Of course, I've fluctuated back away from that number now, but I did make it. As such, I'm thinking 199 won't be too much of a stretch this month, b... Read more
Goal setting
Wednesday, August 31, 2011      0 comments

So, thanks to my new friend Emilyjen, I remembered that I was going to do the chapter 2 goal setting from the Spark. But a quick refresher this morning indicates that the chapter 2 goal setting is not about actual goal setting, but about finding... Read more
Falling off the wagon
Tuesday, August 23, 2011      4 comments

I haven't fallen off the wagon. Actually, right now, it feels more like I'm in the process of falling off the wagon, and hanging on for dear life. I'm really trying to do the right thing, but my heart doesn't seem to be in the game. So I thought... Read more

Today is my 5 year sparkversary. Yep, 5 years. Now, I haven't been active for that entire time. I don't even know what my starting weight was when I first joined (today, I kinda wish I did) but I know that I was at my highest weight l... Read more
206 in July
Friday, July 01, 2011      2 comments

I met my June goal, with flying colors. My nutrition hasn't been too good the last few days, and the scale this morning said I was back up over 210, but I'm pretending I didn't see that, and going with the weight from Monday or Tuesday, which wa... Read more
Am I ready for backpacking?
Monday, June 20, 2011      0 comments

After last weekend, I believe the answer may be no. Because I'm in a lot of pain today. Of course, it might be that the route I took was too hilly. But, according to my fitness tracker, 3 hours of hiking in hilly country carrying 10-20... Read more
213 in June
Tuesday, May 31, 2011      0 comments

My May goal was 217, and after the first amazing week of May, I almost didn't make it. Travel does that to me. However, my last May weigh in left me under 217, so I'm very happy about that. But now June is around the corner, and I'm here t... Read more

Today, I am happy that it didn't start pouring down rain so I could walk (dryly) to and from work.... Read more
Calorie Adjustments
Monday, May 16, 2011      0 comments

On Saturday, I woke up feeling shaky. I generally blame "shaky" on low blood sugar, and this is no exception (I was feeling fine after breakfast) so I'm thinking that I've been restricting my calories a little too much. As such, I've decided to ... Read more
Lots of stuff -- no desire to talk
Wednesday, May 11, 2011      2 comments

So, last week, I set myself a goal of getting to 217 in May. So much for that goal. Sunday morning: 215.8. Yep, I met my May goal in the first week. My goal for the rest of May is to keep losing and follow through with the S... Read more
217 in May
Wednesday, May 04, 2011      0 comments

So on May 1, I weighed in at 219.6. Under 220! Which means that I've now lost over 20 pounds (I wait until the weight is a pound over the mark, so 21 pounds, to really feel like I've lost it. Because otherwise the fluctuations that put me back u... Read more
