Really, I very proud of myself for maintaining the weight I've lost for over a year. It's wonderful really! but I'm less than thrilled with my efforts to lose more. Efforts may be the wrong word, because I know I haven't been committed to ... Read more

It has been quite a while since I did a blog. My scale this morning put me at 222, which means I've maintained the weight I had lost when I first joined spark but it also shows the truth about my focus this last year. It's the same story heard a... Read more

Remember how I was going to count down the days to reach my goal to keep me focused? Yeah, me too. Guess I lost the focus and my count for a while. My mother says life is what happens when you are making other plans. I've been living true to her... Read more

Example one: Mr and I got up EARLY got ourselves out of the house and into the gym! Hooray! It felt great to make that happen. However when we first got in I didn't know what to do with myself. . . it had been so long. I walked around in a few... Read more

I'll take off I'll buckle down, find my groove, take responsibility, get past whatever mental block has been keeping me stagnant. It's odd because it seems like lately my family and co-workers have been seeing my past efforts and are asking if... Read more

Sunday, November 27, 2011      3 comments

Golly can I ever talk the talk. First of all I got my daily countdown wrong in my last blog. I think I'd added an extra month in there (wishful thinking). Anyhow I've got that sorted out, but I have yet to follow through on my more regular bl... Read more

Squarebears has been counting down the days left to reach her intended goal. It caught my attention because her new blogs are smart and funny, but also because I think one of my big problems is letting days slide away without note. Each day coun... Read more
