Come Too Far
Saturday, October 05, 2013      19 comments

Yesterday I was at 127.0 on the scale and had to talk to myself about not being disappointed. I'm hoping to go more than 6 days this time of weighing less than 127, but I accept that what I have direct control over is my eating. Weight fluctuate... Read more

Background: I've lost about 86 pounds and kept it off a little over 4.5 years after more than 5 decades of being overweight or obese. Thanks to Weight Watchers, SparkPeople, Curves, the YMCA, Galloway Run-Walk-Run that showed me what to do, and ... Read more

A Flylady SparkTeam?!! WOW! Two of my favorite things rolled into one! I'm just loving the Flylady routines and attitudes. It has improved my life almost as much as losing the weight and getting fit has. If you have yet to check it out, I ... Read more
Trying Not To Be Too Psyched
Sunday, September 29, 2013      20 comments

This morning, there it was on the scale: 125.8. I'm below what I used to call "my happy weight" of 126. That's the lowest weight I've been since April of this year. It is lower than I weighed all of 2012, 51.2 pounds below my weight on the day ... Read more
Breaking Up Can Be Hard to Do
Saturday, September 28, 2013      19 comments

When I first started trying to eat healthy I found that some "food partners" have been around together so long, it is almost like they are married. I couldn't imagine a peanut butter sandwich without jelly. Or canned tuna without mayo. Or a toss... Read more
The More You Burn, the More You Can Eat!
Friday, September 27, 2013      20 comments

Yesterday I reset my nutrition tracker to be responsive on a daily basis, rather than weekly, to my exercise. This morning, after a 35 minute elliptical workout at the Y, it says "You have burned 251 calories today. The more you burn, the more y... Read more

Angela Tortorice was certified yesterday by the Guinness Book of World Records. She ran 129 full marathons in a year, the most for any woman in that time period. Although running 2 half marathons is my goal for the year, and an appropriate one f... Read more

Tuesday, September 24, 2013      24 comments

Very interesting article in the Lakeland Ledger today. (Could not find a link, but it was a paragraph on the front page.) Recent research in Sweden showed that grocery shoppers who had not had a good night's sleep bought more caloric foods than ... Read more
Don't Have to Be Perfect
Monday, September 23, 2013      21 comments

You don't have to be perfect to succeed!! That's a lesson that's been very hard for me to learn, especially in regards to eating. But I'm learning. I used to just give up because I couldn't be perfect. Now I do the best I can, stop the unp... Read more
Take Care
Saturday, September 21, 2013      24 comments

On a good eating roll, but fell today during my group training run. Busted up my face, knees, and hands. Great people bandaged me and drove me home. I think all the injuries are pretty superficial. Perhaps my lip would stop bleeding if I'd quit ... Read more
And A Second Thing....
Friday, September 20, 2013      14 comments

I appreciate each SparkFriend who responded to my blog two days ago asking what one thing you could do to improve your program. I recognized myself in several of the answers: 1. Strength Training was mentioned at least twice. I have no reas... Read more
Something I've Wanted All My Life

What One Thing Could You Do To Improve Your Program?
Wednesday, September 18, 2013      18 comments

I read a blog a week or so ago, and I'd give the author credit but unfortunately I don't remember her name, and it just kind of sat on my mind, challenging me. She asked what one thing could you do to improve your program? What would really make... Read more
