20 days in a row.
Sunday, June 23, 2019      5 comments

For some reason, this feels like a big win for me today. 20 days of logging on to SparkPeople. It doesn't represent a perfect check-in each day, or logging food, or exercising each day. Some days it was check and spin the wheel, but I was here a... Read more
Weekends are for (fill in the blank)
Monday, June 17, 2019      2 comments

Weekends haven't always been easy when I've done Sparkpeople in the past because there was usually one weekend that broke my streak of counting calories. It would be followed by disappointment and a sense of failure. It also seemed too much to s... Read more
Sugar, I love you
Tuesday, June 11, 2019      2 comments

When I read today's sugar cravings challenge and saw that I had to cut my sugar intake down to 1-2 servings a day I started to think of the bad romance I've had with sugar. Sugar, darling, I love you but you have to go. One year for lent I... Read more
The Journey is a Long One
Sunday, June 09, 2019      2 comments

I have been with Spark People on and of for over 10 years. I think my weight would be even greater if it wasn't for their help. When I did gain weight I knew why, because they had given good tools and information on why you gain weight. Wha... Read more

I want to be honest. I like sugar. Sometimes I like salt, but mainly sugar. I am not sure I want to end my relationship with it. Today, I again stopped at the gas station for a day old donut. I had a headache and maybe subconsciously I felt I de... Read more
Other Focused
Monday, November 05, 2018      0 comments

Are you like me and other focused? So much so that whatever someone else wants to do, their agenda, goals and motivations become yours as well. I am a pretty easygoing person, but I find it difficult to communicate the importance of my goals and... Read more
Okay, 5 glasses of water
Tuesday, October 30, 2018      5 comments

I just don't drink water, but I know I should and can tell I need to drink it but I don't. All week I've been barely drinking more than three and on the weekends I barely drink any. Today 5 glasses. I started right in the morning because it was ... Read more
Over A Year
Sunday, October 28, 2018      3 comments

I've been coming back to Spark People for over 10 years. I've gained more weight, but I think less than I would have if I didn't use the program so many years ago. It isn't easy to see that win when you feel so far behind. I'm not at my heaviest... Read more

This morning I took a personal day because I needed to think more about my work goals. Some of that was really looking at if I am still where I need to be... Read more
A Reason to Hope
Sunday, June 25, 2017      3 comments

Something keeps bringing me back to SparkPeople even though I have failed to stick with it. I actually started originally in 2005, but have gone away and come back over many times and forgotten passwords. My weight has continued to go up increme... Read more
Conquering Fear
Saturday, June 10, 2017      2 comments

Conquering fear with hope and courage. Yesterday I was able to name that fear of getting beyond help in weightloss, which I thinks stems from many starts and stops I've encountered on my journey. What I realize is that what causes my fear is bec... Read more

Because today is my goal to write a blog post. I am. That's the honest truth without fluff. Going to New York City. I'm going to walk walk walk walk walk.... Read more
