I really DO NEED my Sparkfriends!
Tuesday, February 24, 2015      6 comments

Years ago I read a book entitled "We Really Do Need Each Other" and tonight this has become more meaningful for me in a new way. Thankfully this evening I had some extra time to spend on Sparkpeople. As I was looking at my friend list, I realize... Read more
How do I go from starting over and over again to moving forward towards my goal?
Sunday, February 22, 2015      7 comments

it seems like lately more and more of my Sparkfriends are struggling, just like me. I am not sure what is happening. Maybe it's this time of the year. Although since I am living in Southern California, I certainly don't have the excuse of having... Read more
I did make a U-turn, and I am moving in the right direction.

When I wrote my last blog entry almost 3 weeks ago, I painted a picture for myself heading down a one-way street and facing trucks barreling down the road towards me. At that point I said that if I didn't make a U-turn, I would die. I am ... Read more

These past two weeks I have tried very hard to get back on track, and I have made some progress in some areas. I have checked in with Sparks almost every day, I have tried to drink at least six glasses of water a day, and I have started tracking... Read more

I cannot believe I have spent more than a year on Sparks, and just now discovered that there are so many more emoticons besides the popular ones. There is food, fitness, seasonal, other, and flags. What puzzles me more than anything is how... Read more

Saturday, January 10, 2015      8 comments

I am finishing up my first week back with Sparkpeople and I am thinking about what worked and what didn't. My first week back was not exactly what I had hoped it to be, but then again it was not a total disaster. There were somethings that... Read more
Learning to make adjustments
Wednesday, January 07, 2015      6 comments

Even though I only set two goals for myself for this month, I already have to make some adjustments. But instead of getting upset which is my usual modus operandum, I am actually able to take things in stride. That for me is a huge success, sinc... Read more
Where do I begin?

I have been in and out of Sparkland for many months now, and really much more out than in. I am not sure what has made it so difficult for me to be involved with my Sparkfriends for such a long time. I have missed this supportive community and h... Read more

Time to start moving again... One. Day. At. A. Time.
Friday, May 16, 2014      6 comments

A very sad family event, temperatures in the triple digits and a miserable cold brought my healthy journey to an abrupt halt. Grappling with the idea of why bad things happen to good people and feeling helpless and confused at the situation, I s... Read more
Food IS the issue!
Sunday, April 27, 2014      15 comments

Actually it would be more accurate to say: Eating IS the issue. For months I have thought that my lack of exercise was my problem for not losing weight. Now that I have started swimming on a semi regular basis and generally log between 7,00... Read more

That is my motto for this month! Indeed I want this month to matter! Already two months have passed in 2014, and I am trying to figure out what happened. My goal for March is that I will make a difference over the next few weeks. I want to ... Read more

This sounds like a sermon topic, and actually it is. I like it when I hear a sermon and it inspires me and motivates me. This morning in church the pastor kept asking this question over and over, and at one point a light bulb went on in my head.... Read more

In some ways I wasn't surprised that the chocolate monster got a hold of me last night. It seems to happen every single time when I feel pretty good about myself. I was proud of myself yesterday, and bam, I just couldn't resist those peanut M&Ms... Read more
