Here's what happened, why I disappeared on 5/24. I want to say thank you (you know who you are) for caring about me and missing me. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to know people will miss me and do care about me. On March 24th ... Read more

I have not been online at all for a while and I haven't been tracking. I've let other projects entice my attention away from doing my tracking and participating online. That's been a mistake. However, I've been really living my life. I h... Read more

For me. What doesn't work: * First thing am doing anything other than track my food * Not preparing my tea (herbal, iced) last thing the night before * Wallowing in self-pity and self-intolerance and using excuses not to go t... Read more
Protecting What's Essential

I started writing this blog an hour ago, but it keeps getting jumbled up. The bottom line is that I hate being noticed at the gym. I hate it when I see people looking at me, and I hate it when they talk to me. Usually whatever they are sa... Read more

Saturday, May 15, 2010      14 comments

I've been touching base with Sparkers today and wishing them a fit and fabulous weekend. Then I just had a thought "should I say that, since some of us are a ways, yet, from our goal weight?" Is it a legitimate wish for someone like,... Read more

On the ride home from dropping my DS off at school I was listening to our local Public Radio station. The person interviewed had written a book about a relationship issue, and she said that she had an evil twin sister, Sheila, who whispered all... Read more

I am happy but exhausted. Today was a strength training day, which means 10 min cardio to warm up, a total body top-down strength program using gym machines, and a full-body stretch. This is my favorite fitness activity. I love how I ... Read more

Today I spent the day with my daughter at a salon having mani and pedi treatments. She also got an eyebrow wax and haircut. We strutted out of there feeling fine! This is a miracle in a lot of ways. Basically, the fact that I'm up and do... Read more

Today I did NOT want to weigh-in. I only weigh-in once a month because if I did it more frequently I would go crazy and it would be very unmotivating. You see, I am a very slow loser. Even when I have weighed and measured everything from... Read more

It's been a long weekend, due to my daughter's performance schedule. I volunteered to do 4 jobs during her week of performances. All these jobs required me to be on my feet moving around doing things. I was amazed that I had the stamina to fu... Read more
Mountain Climbing
Thursday, April 29, 2010      9 comments

When I first started SP 3 weeks ago, I was standing at the base of a Mountain Range that spanned the horizon. The mountain Range was impassable and unclimbable. I couldn't see the tops for the clouds, and I felt alone and hopeless. I had old... Read more

Today is a blah day for me. I hate blah! I'd rather be in misery. Well, maybe not. But I crave that newbie high I had when I first started this program. That "I can do it" attitude. Right now I am just Doing the Next Right Thing, and... Read more

Binging is forefront in my mind right now, and I've been working hard to counteract the binge syren. For the last 3 days the syren has been singing to me. I have been in a very stressful situation and I've wanted to eat soooo bad. I... Read more
