Introspective Today
Wednesday, June 30, 2010      5 comments

I've been doing more reading and less talking the past few days. I've been reading current blogs and past blogs. I've searched for blogs of people who've been extraordinarily successful on their Spark journey, and then I've gone back to read t... Read more
A new week, a new resolve
Monday, June 28, 2010      9 comments

Any difficult achievement always takes great effort; and most of the time it is not accomplished on the first attempt. The average smoker doesn't quit for good until the 7th attempt; for me it was probably like the 700th. But I did eventually ... Read more

Confusion reigns, part 2
Saturday, June 26, 2010      5 comments

I didn't sleep very well last night; TC has some sort of stomach bug so he was up-and-down until he finally left to sleep in the guest bedroom. But I couldn't go back to sleep. I was thinking about what I said yesterday about being confused, a... Read more
Confusion reigns
Friday, June 25, 2010      2 comments

I've been basically at the same weight, give or take 5 pounds, for the past year. I've really worked hard to lose weight but I've been inconsistent. I've read so much advice -- cut calories, increase calories, calorie cycle, work out mor... Read more
It's HUMP DAY!
Wednesday, June 23, 2010      7 comments

I didn't feel well over the weekend and ended up not sticking as closely to my WARRVESTS strategy as I should have. I'm the same weight, but hey, beats at least ONE of the alternatives! I loved Nancy's and BLW's take on IMPULSES, and I did... Read more
Distraction Techniques
Friday, June 18, 2010      14 comments

Beck card for the day: "When I want to eat something I shouldn't, do these things instead: (Fill in the blank)" This is what I filled in: READ, BRUSH TEETH, COMPUTER, PUT LOTION ON HANDS, DO NAILS, GO TO BED, STOP AND THINK! ... Read more
Just SAY NO!
Thursday, June 17, 2010      3 comments

Beck card for the day: say no to extra food "Get rid of extra food. It'll be wasted in the trash can or in my body. Either way, it's wasted." ** Well, I'm sure I'm not the only baby boomer who was told to clean my plate bec... Read more
Tolerate It!
Wednesday, June 16, 2010      6 comments

Beck card for the day: "Hunger and cravings aren't emergencies. I can tolerate them. They're mild compared to ________________." (I filled in CHILDBIRTH!) "I'm going to eat again in ____ hours anyway." I've consciously been trying ... Read more
Resistance Habit
Tuesday, June 15, 2010      6 comments

My Beck card for today: "EVERY TIME I eat something I'm not supposed to, I strengthen my giving-in habit. EVERY TME I don't give in, I strengthen my resistance habit." The capitals are hers, not mine. I've noticed that when I p... Read more
1.2%
Monday, June 14, 2010      9 comments

I've lost 2 pounds this week so down 1.2% ! I'm ecstatic. Can't remember the last time I had a full 7-days on my plan with no slips. Through much of April and all of May I've been whining, giving excuses, starting and stopping, ta... Read more
Tough Love
Sunday, June 13, 2010      4 comments

I am reading my Beck Advantages Response Cards, but rather than blast through all 40 cards in 3 minutes, I'm reading one per day and really spending some time with it. If the card no longer fits, I'm going to discard it. If it is still valid, ... Read more
Marching Onward
Saturday, June 12, 2010      4 comments

I got through Friday without a hitch, so here it is Saturday morning, and I've got my plan in place! I'll do the PowerPump class at the fitness center (75 minutes) AND if I can stand it I'll stay for the 30 minute core-building class afterw... Read more
Did it all today
Thursday, June 10, 2010      5 comments

I'm going back to my WARRVESTS strategy, because if I do everything I know I'm on the right track to losing weight. The challenge is to keep it from becoming a laundry list of obligations "I gotta do." I have to realize these are things I CHOO... Read more
Feeling better

Hey, I'm down a pound from yesterday so I'm happy about that! I think it was .59%. So Vandal wins the bragging rights for the week! I want to thank everyone for their blogs yesterday; it really got me out of my funk and back on track. ... Read more
