Stamina, Corn Bags, and Count Down
Thursday, January 23, 2014      14 comments

Today was Senior Dance with hubby. I am so tickled that his stamina has increased. He never exercises for exercise sake, but he has been walking the dog consistently for about 2 years now. We've been dancing 1-2 times a week for about 8 months. ... Read more

Wednesday, January 22, 2014      17 comments

I just passed 100,000 fitness minutes tracked since I started SparkPeople in Sept of 2009. Thanks to all of you who gave positive strokes on my feed. That averages 1971 minutes per month for over 4 years. Thanks to SP or I wouldn't have any idea... Read more

My nephew took over another minute off his 5K PR for a 36 minute and 50-somthing (53 maybe?) finish this morning in the Komen Race for the Cure. He's come a long way from his first 5K in January of 2012 at 49 minutes. He is controlling his blood... Read more
This Is A Test
Friday, January 17, 2014      17 comments

I'm interrupting my series looking back at old blogs in order to share a current challenge that I face. I've been fighting scaly rash (I've had several diagnoses including eczema) on my hands for several years. It is much better. In Novem... Read more
Repeating A Blog Just Because
Thursday, January 16, 2014      16 comments

Indulge me. I liked this blog, so I'm going to repeat it, although there isn't much profound about it. Nonetheless, I remember the event well. From 12/19/09: "That's a beautiful blouse," I overheard an attractive woman say to a younger one ... Read more
Cookies Then and Now
Wednesday, January 15, 2014      20 comments

11/05/2009: When I looked at today's meal plan I broke out in laughter. Listed is one chocolate chip cookie at lunch time. Why would that be funny? The picture of me eating just one cookie on first thought just seemed unthinkable -- yes, downr... Read more
I BELIEVE!
Tuesday, January 14, 2014      18 comments

I'm reviewing my old blogs to see how far I've come, to look for issues still unresolved, and to see if there are some lessons I need to relearn. On November 17, 2009, I had an experience I had never had before in my entire life. The scale ... Read more
Letting Go and Living in Celebration
Monday, January 13, 2014      19 comments

I'm warming up and gathering speed as I travel down the runway to takeoff for my 5th anniversary of achieving a healthy weight after more than 5 decades of being overweight or obese. The date is still 8 weeks away. Am I overdoing this?? Yeah, ma... Read more
Clothing and Maintenance
Sunday, January 12, 2014      20 comments

I'm reviewing blogs from my first year of SparkPeople, my time of achieving a weight I didn't think was possible for me, over 80 pounds below my 1999 high. In mid-November I wrote two blogs about clothing: 1. My 2X clothes allowed me to g... Read more

I'm reviewing my blogs from 2009 to look for lessons I need to relearn and to celebrate those areas in which I've improved. I may end up identifying some ongoing issues, areas in which I still need to improve. As I approach the 5 year milestone ... Read more
Pictures as Motivators and Moderation in Tracking
Friday, January 10, 2014      11 comments

On Nov 10, 2009, my daughter took some "after" pictures of me by our bougainvilla which was in full bloom in our front yard. These were my first after pictures and I titled one, "Skinny Me," posted it to my SparkPage and changed my profile pictu... Read more
Looking Back: Weight, Exercise, Eating Out
Thursday, January 09, 2014      16 comments

My Weight Watcher card they gave me when they went on compute verifies what I remember. When I started with SparkPeople on 9/2/09 I weighed 145.4 at WW; by the end of October I was down to 137.2. Even though I came to SP for maintenance, I found... Read more
Blog About Life!
Wednesday, January 08, 2014      18 comments

I love what JOYINKY had to say in response to my query about blog relevance, those "off topic" or not specifically about eating and fitness. What I took from her comment is that everything we do to enjoy life is putting food in proper perspectiv... Read more
Thanks to Consistent Cheerleaders on my Blogs!!

My second blog was a little off topic. I mean, we are here to achieve health and fitness goals, aren't we? But then everything in our lives affect our mood and our mood affects our ability to follow our health and fitness plans, right? So maybe ... Read more
