Gathering courage

My last blog referenced my fear of this whole effort and of failing yet again to either accomplish this goal or maintain if I do. I know that I CAN make it happen. I’ve done it a number of times! 😝 I just have to remain disciplined and kee... Read more

I am afraid to weigh in. I know I’m only supposed to do it once a week. That won’t be until Thursday. So I have a some time to get prepared. I just don’t want to see that I have not lost anything. I did weigh over the weekend and I’d dropped a c... Read more
First week back
Sunday, September 15, 2019      5 comments

Well, after my first (half) week back on SparkPeople since 2013, I can say I am starting out with a not-quite-bang, but not so bad either. I’ve actually lost 2.6 lbs and slept. Sleeping is a huge issue, so that’s big. I’ve done some exercise, ... Read more

I know it’s been over 2500 days. Spark tells me so. Times have been hard and I know they aren’t going to get easier, so I need to get with it. I ended up losing a total of 73 lbs during that previous stint on the site. Now I’ve regained 27 and ... Read more

I have been mostly off for a few days due to illness. Trying to keep my streak alive, so I logged in and did what I could, but it was just too hard to keep up with everything. Feeling a little better now, but let me tell you, cellulitis will ... Read more

In the wake of Sandy

My prayers are with those in the areas affected by this Superstorm and their loved ones. I live in Indiana, and even as many states and miles from the coast as we are, we've felt brutal winds for many hours. I can only imagine the devastation ... Read more

Hi! Here is an idea for a blog that I borrowed from another Sparker who borrowed it from another Spark user. These are supposed to have only one-word answers! Copy and Paste into your own blog, change the answers to suit you. Whe... Read more

What a great day God has made today! It's just Beeyootifulllll! Make sure you put a huge accent on that first syllable and a pretty good one on the second. After such a nasty one yesterday (and of course that was one of the two days a we... Read more
Measuring the race in forward movement
Thursday, October 18, 2012      7 comments

Managed to lose another......2/10th of a pound lol! It's better than the alternative, which I've done plenty of times. It's been a rough week, too, and I honestly expected to have gained, so I am satisfied with this success, albeit a tiny one.... Read more
Milestone reached!
Monday, October 15, 2012      6 comments

Although it seemed hard getting there, I have reached a milestone of 20 pounds lost and it does feel good. With my exercise limitations and dependence on mostly diet to move this journey along, it's a slow process, but (sticking thumbnail behin... Read more
Draggin' it
Friday, August 24, 2012      4 comments

Sometimes, it seems as though I have to drag my bum to drag my butt. As I sit here and prepare to log in my food, I am nodding off in my chair. Being a Friday, I worked today, putting out books at a local supercenter, which is a fair bit... Read more
Dieting Dollars
Thursday, August 09, 2012      4 comments

Dieting ain't cheap. Of course, neither is the alternative. Think in terms of the costs associated with being obese, such as medical costs and having to buy larger clothing and more expensive shoes more often. At least if we can do it r... Read more
My beef with bras
Saturday, August 04, 2012      10 comments

Ok, I may be new here, but I have to get something off my chest. Or rather, on it. Or not. Well, I'd like to get a sport bra on my chest, but it's hard to do! I have noticed the advertising for a "fitting" her on SparkPeople for sport br... Read more
