Thursday, June 17, 2010      1 comments

Today at the gym, in between sets, I wrote down a few of my new important goals. I also got to thinking about how far I've come since joining SP. I've taken a rather lazy approach to my weight loss until the first of the year. I re-dedic... Read more
Sugar - My worst enemy
Monday, April 05, 2010      6 comments

At the beginning of this year, I decided to get serious about my weight loss and decided to give up sugar, salt and diet soda. I also started exercising again and I really started losing weight. Last month, I started allowing myself small port... Read more

A few weeks ago everything seem to be falling into place. I found a hiking group I liked, I started a clinical trial which would help me sleep and I would even get paid for it, my exercise routine was working and I had actually dropped a couple... Read more

Portion Control
Monday, June 22, 2009      7 comments

Now that I seem to have my workout routine complete, I'm going to start concentrating on my portions. Since I haven't been measuring my portions, I am sure that there have been times that I have been off in my calorie calculations. I'll enter ... Read more
My new motivational tool
Thursday, June 18, 2009      6 comments

I've decided that instead of picking a date some time in the future to buy the size jeans I want to eventually fit in, I'm going to go ahead and buy them now. I'll try them on every Saturday to measure my progress (since I hate the scale). Si... Read more
Another new cardio class
Friday, May 29, 2009      6 comments

Today I tried a kick & pump class at the gym. It was easier than yesterday's step class, which was encouraging. Next week I'm going to try a couple more cardio classes. By taking these classes, I'll really be able to judge how my fitness is i... Read more
Stepping out of the box
Thursday, May 28, 2009      1 comments

I've been questioning why I bother to work out since I haven't seen any big changes lately (although I now have a jaw line). So today I decided to take a step class. I thought I had been doing enough cardio and was in pretty good shape. Howev... Read more
No more binge Sundays.
Monday, April 20, 2009      4 comments

I woke up this morning hating myself for eating non-stop yesterday. All through the week I think about the things I will get to eat on Sunday and then I can't stop eating. I just can't do this anymore. It doesn't make sense to work so hard fo... Read more
Sunday's Binge
Monday, March 16, 2009      2 comments

I did pretty good Sunday until about 8:30 p.m. I have a rule that I don't eat after 7:30, but last night I knew that I was going to break that rule. I kept thinking about having something to eat and made a conscious decision to eat. Once I st... Read more
Pity Party

When I was walking on the treadmill today, I was thinking about how much I hated being there when I noticed that Oprah was at Walter Reed Hospital interviewing veterans who had been injured in Iraq. I couldn't help but start to cry and realize ... Read more
Keeping up with SparkPoints
Tuesday, February 24, 2009      1 comments

Since I have been doing the SparkPoints, I have found that I have less time to eat, which is very good. I read all of my mail, then go through the SparkPoints list and make sure that I do the maximum of each item. This really takes up a lot of... Read more
Calculating Calories
Monday, February 23, 2009      0 comments

Sometimes I think that I may be under reporting my calories when mom cooks dinner. Like tonight she cooked chicken marsala. I know that what she cooks is pretty low cal but I'm still afraid I may not be recording the right number of calories. ... Read more
Break from points
Sunday, February 22, 2009      1 comments

Took a break from SparkPoints today but I did keep my food log. Ate all my Sunday treats but I logged them and didn't go over my calorie limit. Also took day off from working out. Feels good to rest, but will start up again tomorrow.... Read more
Didn't go to Roberto's
Saturday, February 21, 2009      2 comments

I really wanted some rolled tacos and rice from Roberto's but decided if I ate like that today I couldn't have my doughnuts tomorrow, so I stayed on track. Really looking forward to those doughnuts!! I have really done good this week. ... Read more
