SP Spyware Is Causing My Computer Sooo Many Problems
Sunday, August 16, 2009      4 comments

After one of my team leaders sent a message out today that she is leaving SP due to the same problem, I knew that I was not alone. Another former member also had the same issue and had to leave. Since joining in January 09, I have continuously... Read more
One Week After The Huge Crash
Saturday, August 15, 2009      6 comments

Last week, for the first time in 10 months, I went on a 3-day food bender. In retrospect, it was nothing like what I used to eat on a normal day. My overeating did not entail sweets, or anything similar. It was just being hungry and eating a ... Read more
Stress, Cortisol and Weight Loss
Friday, August 14, 2009      4 comments

It seems that I have heard this report several times lately and maybe the Cosmos is trying to give me a message. (smiling) That is, stress produces higher levels of cortisol which inhibits weight loss. My level has been off the charts for a lo... Read more
Not Getting My Email Notifications of Postings, Goodies, Etc.
Thursday, August 13, 2009      5 comments

Yes, I'm signed up to get them on my page, and have been getting them until yesterday. I feel disconnected and not able to respond to blogs and other things. Anyone else having this problem? Guess I'll give it another day and see what happens... Read more
Forgiving Myself
Wednesday, August 12, 2009      4 comments

I'm so kind and caring to others, but not so much to myself. Oh sure, I do nice things for myself, but when it comes to forgiveness for the 3 days of eating rebellion, I have to really work on letting it go. I'm a tough taskmaster and have to ... Read more
The Lake Walk & What I Learned from My 3 Days of Crash & Burn
Tuesday, August 11, 2009      3 comments

Okay, so I went on a 3-day eating bender last weekend after being a REAL good girl for 10 months now. It was a turning point where I just wanted to quit everything. And I blogged yesterday about what I learned from failure - including forgivin... Read more
What I Learned from the Past 3 Days of Crash and Burn
Monday, August 10, 2009      6 comments

Okay, the pity party is over and I have learned as much from these past three days of "failure" as I have from my 9 months since starting a great, healthy eating program. As many of my sparkfriends who responded to my "I'm in trouble" blog remi... Read more
Sliding Down the Slippery Slope Pretty Fast & Rebelling Against Who Knows What?
Sunday, August 09, 2009      13 comments

After 9 months of dedicated hard work, I've spent the last three days totally rebelling. I don't know exactly what my problem is, but I do know this... I may or may not make it back on-track. I've not dealt effectively with my continuous stres... Read more
I'll Blame It on the Full Moon
Saturday, August 08, 2009      4 comments

These past two days, I've fallen off the wagon and not cared. First time since I started last October. Just wild abandon. Everything just came to a head (including crime activity on my street with 4 police cars and a helicopter overhead), but... Read more
Tough Love in the Last Car of the Roller Coaster
Friday, August 07, 2009      5 comments

Okay, after non-stop bumps in the road for a longgggg time, and doing everything I can to get over it all, sometimes I just have to treat myself like a kid and use tough love. I've been in this last car (the one that is said to feel everything ... Read more
Is Food Tracking/Journaling A Forever Thing?
Thursday, August 06, 2009      8 comments

I need the advice of you advanced sparkies. After 9 months of daily food tracking, I'm wondering if it ends when you reach goal. Or do you do this for the rest of your life? Kinda tired of it, although I know that it is one of the tools that ... Read more
Giving Up Caffeine-A Never Ending Battle
Wednesday, August 05, 2009      11 comments

Even though I don't drink a lot of coffee (less than one full mug a day), it still makes me feel yucky. I've succeeded at quitting many times, only to start again with the gateway "drug" of decaf and then work my way into regular. The thing is... Read more
Thanks to All My Sparkfriends
Tuesday, August 04, 2009      2 comments

I want to give a shout-out to all of those who responded yesterday to my blog regarding scale challenges. In fact, throughout my entire 6 months on SP, the people here have been an amazing support system. I just wanted to let you know that you... Read more
Excitement Extinguished - Going to Throw This Dang Scale Away
Monday, August 03, 2009      13 comments

Honestly, I think the biggest favor I can do for myself is to get rid of this scale. I've written about this good one I got in February, but it can't seem to weigh accurately. You can step on it 8 times and get 5 different numbers. Which is w... Read more
Less Blubber to Pinch Now
Sunday, August 02, 2009      5 comments

Every so often I do the blubber pinch test on myself. Not only do I get a realistic assessment of how much is left, but I feel that doing this might make the remaining jelly-like substance get a head start in disappearing. In other words, it m... Read more
