Which Do You Want First - the Good News or the Bad?
Sunday, January 17, 2010      7 comments

The Bad News is that I'm just feeling kind of blue, blah, bleck. There's some conflict in my family that we just can't seem to get over and it is repetitively disheartening. The Good News is that for years I would have sought comfort in foo... Read more
Strong and Happy Streaking!
Saturday, January 16, 2010      3 comments

I just finished Day 14 of Spark Your Body Bootcamp. One of my good SparkFriends commented yesterday that she considered 13 days a streak! Okay. It's officially a streak now. One observation of today's workout is that SparkPeople strength tr... Read more
Am I Cheating?
Friday, January 15, 2010      6 comments

I try to get most of the SparkPoints available each day. And I want to do it the right way. I am very careful to correctly count my water and my cardio minutes. I carefully read articles I click on. If I add cardio and then delete it (say, I cl... Read more
Life at Goal Weight is Great, But it isn't Perfect
Thursday, January 14, 2010      3 comments

One reason I expect to be able to keep the weight off this time is that I am much more realistic. The first time I lost 60 pounds I was 16 years old. I was shocked to find out I'd still have to wait in lines, suffer bad hair days, and even do ho... Read more
Do These Pants Make Me Look Fat?
Wednesday, January 13, 2010      10 comments

I used to think that question was the definition of a shallow, vain person. Of course, for years it wasn't a question I could ask. No pants could make me look fat. I was fat. But now as I try to learn to dress this new body I find it can be diff... Read more
It Took Me 6 Days
Tuesday, January 12, 2010      10 comments

Well, I did it. I'm back to the bottom of my goal range (129-135). It took me 6 days after making a poor choice about the portion of chocolate candy I selected. I really do think I'm making progress. For years I would give up in despair wh... Read more
Dumped the Christmas Cookies!
Monday, January 11, 2010      6 comments

I took them out of the freezer, selected 4 of the best to keep, and then dumped the rest. Just really didn't want them hanging around. I feel very good about this choice.... Read more
Shameless Reward Junkie!
Sunday, January 10, 2010      5 comments

I am without a doubt a shameless reward junkie! I carry around my Weight Watcher awards: my 10% (of total body weight lost) award, my 16 week Stay and Succeed Award, my 25 Pounds Lost award, my Goal Weight Star, and my Key to Lifetime. My 50 pou... Read more

Saturday, January 09, 2010      5 comments

Here I am just reading along, amongst all the gems in The Spark, looking for things to apply to my life, when there it is! My SparkFriend, RAYLINSTEPHENS, quoted on page 39! And what she had to say about trusting SparkPeople and eating enough to... Read more
The Days of Punitive Dieting and Deprivation are Over!
Friday, January 08, 2010      5 comments

That phrase, "The Days of Punitive Dieting and Deprivation are Over", just keeps going through my head. I'll have to look it up in The Spark and see if I got it word for word, but I know I got the gist. It's not positive enough to be my aff... Read more
The Spark has Arrived!
Thursday, January 07, 2010      0 comments

Yesterday it finally came. I finally received The Spark by Chris Downie. I've just read over intro, chapt 1 & 2 of so far. First impressions: easy read, interesting, motivating, and it makes so much sense. I liked SparkGuy's explanation o... Read more
Skinny Person with a Fat Shadow
Wednesday, January 06, 2010      6 comments

I hit the bottom of my chosen weight range earlier this week. It should be celebration time. However, I didn't want to go any lower, so after a day of healthy eating and exercise I thought I would indulge in a little candy. The chocolate candy ... Read more
Useful Trivia
Tuesday, January 05, 2010      8 comments

I just read on SparkPeople today - actually, in the trivia quiz - that adding milk to tea destroys antioxidant properties. What a revelation! I've been drinking skim milk in my tea for years thinking I was adding good nutrition. The practical th... Read more
Even If Times Change, Men and Women are Different
Monday, January 04, 2010      3 comments

Last week my husband went to the grocery store with me. As we walked in, without hesitation, he stepped onto the big scale at the front of the store. I would never weigh myself in public, but he has no inhibitions about it. Men and women truly a... Read more
Waiting for The Spark
Sunday, January 03, 2010      6 comments

My book hasn't arrived yet. Can't wait! I'm jealous of those who are already into it. Oh, well. Patience has never been one of my better virtues. Maybe I need the practice.... Read more
