178.6 It seems I like to circle the changes to a new decade. I've been swimming around above and below that 180 mark all month! I hit 178.6 for the first time over 2.5 weeks ago. Frustrating! I'm certain that the two packs of donett... Read more
Stupid CVS coupons, and a waterfall (move in silks)

178.8 It would have been better! I have actually thought about changing pharmacies. I think it is a huge waste of trees to print out 9 million coupons that I'm never gonna use. The only ones I do use are the immediate cash ones - wh... Read more
The in-between sizes game.

178 My favorite pair of shorts still fit. They look like jeans shorts, but are a bit stretchy, so they've had some flexibility as I was 30 pounds more than I am now. They are starting to get a bit looser, though. That's nice in some ways... Read more

179.2 As spark winds down, I find myself blogging as a journal... as no one is left to read it. That's okay. It is for me, after all. But there is a twinge of sadness when I don't get the occasional words of support. As I was copying an... Read more
Weird weekend

181.8 Yes, I'm a bit frustrated at that number. I had been in the 170s for 4 days... and then I spoke too soon. So, for the past three days, I've been in the 180s. Yesterday and the day before, I had some belated bathroom results that wo... Read more
Measurements doing very little

180.2 Not worried about that little slip up into the 180s - it was resolved later, hahaha. My shorts seem to be fitting a little looser - not a lot looser, mind you. So I thought I'd take my measurements again. Last time I did (back ... Read more
Firmly in the 170s

179 Yes, that's darn close to 180. But I've been in the 170s for 4 days in a row, so I'm calling that firmly in! I had a pretty good silks class today. My usual Thursday and Sunday routine got messed up, as I was away helping with the pa... Read more
30 pounds

178.4 208 to 178. 30 pounds! Hooray! My next mini-goal is to lose 15% of my body weight, which will be 176.8. That's not far off. The goal after that is to get to the mid-170s, which will also be about halfway to my big goal. 208-65 i... Read more
A 4th of July surprise

179.6 What? 170s. Really? I hope so! After Friday's late night snacking, and Saturday's indulgences, I decided I didn't need to indulge all day Sunday as well - even though it was the holiday. We did a tiny bit of yard work. And t... Read more

181 I'm surprised that number isn't higher. After Friday night's late night snack attack, and after yesterday's holiday indulgences, I thought the scale would show a bigger setback. However, today is the real holiday, and we're having rib... Read more
Had a late night binge last night

181.2 I had leftovers last night - from three different days. So the whole thing was a bit weird. But, as I was home alone this week, and haven't figured out how to cook for one person again, I had leftovers. My sweetie got back last nig... Read more
Highs and lows over the years

I started spark back in April of 2008, weighing 212 pounds. A year and a half later, I reached 143 (11.20.09). I stayed in the 140s or 150s until mid-2011. There are little ups and downs - mostly ups - all through. It is plain to see whe... Read more

180 (This blog written on Myfittnesspal and copied to here.) I just spent a week with family. Exhausting! I am so grateful for IF. Not only did it help me deal with the food pushers (my parents), but it also prevented a virtual ton... Read more
Home scale, but need a day or two to settle in

181 I ate all day Sunday and Monday. Sunday, I took my favorite nephew to brunch. It was nice. Normally on Sundays, I go to silks at noon, and then come home and my sweetie and I have lunch around 2pm. So I have kind of planned on Sunda... Read more
Different scale on uneven ground

178.6 No idea if that's even close to accurate. It sure doesn't feel like I'm a few pounds down. We'll see Tuesday. Wish I was home already. Update... I was writing that from my phone earlier (typing it while my dad was making me... Read more
