When I started SP I did everything I could find online, and one thing I did was a 'motivational' poster of reasons why I needed to do this. Now that I've passed six months I was looking at a few of them and to my surprise a few have happened alr... Read more
6 month progress photos
Friday, July 03, 2009      21 comments

I can't figure out how to make all this pretty, so what you'll see is my photo when I started on January 2 with another of me on April 2nd, followed by one of me on July 2nd (pink shirt). I wish I had, like my SP friend Kayla, thought to do... Read more
19th Nervous Breakdown
Wednesday, July 01, 2009      10 comments

I’ve been listening to old Stones music lately and this song struck me this morning. Sometimes I think this journey for me is like being in treatment – a series of ups and downs with a few nervous breakdowns thrown in for good measure. I guess u... Read more
One step up and two steps back...
Wednesday, June 24, 2009      5 comments

Sometimes trying to follow my daily progress would give a person whiplash! I'm up, I'm down, I'm excited and motivated, I'm in a funk. It's probably a good thing I don't try blogging daily! So there is some good news with all this: I am at... Read more

Okay, I'm through with this crappy what the heck is wrong with me week! I am trying to sort through what has been going on with me this week so this blog might be like a nighmarish meander through my thinking process....which could be scary... Read more
Still trudging

So I have not snapped out of my lack of motivation funk yet. I also think I am starving all the time and don't want to stop eating! I AM still tracking and staying in range, though I'm at the higher end of my range right now. And I'm still... Read more
Misplaced my motivation
Monday, June 15, 2009      4 comments

Lest anyone thing I am perpetually upbeat and hopeful, it looks as if I've misplaced my cheerful disposition and motivation. We took our boys back to college on Sunday, which is a 10 hour drive round trip after taking time for hugs and unpa... Read more

Too fat to fly?
Tuesday, June 09, 2009      4 comments

Let me start right off by saying that I do not enjoy flying in airplanes. They are not comfortable and are certainly not made for someone who is 'over sized'. Because of this paranoia, I am very careful about flying. I will not fly alone. I... Read more
Goal review and revision
Sunday, June 07, 2009      6 comments

It’s just past my 5 month Sparkanniversary and I thought I’d take a look back at some initial goals I set for myself and see where I’m at, and where I might need to revise. My initial goal for the first 3 months was to lose 40 pounds, and I... Read more
Poem: Comes the Dawn
Wednesday, June 03, 2009      4 comments

I usually would not just post something like this but I told Whoaminottobe I'd put this poem up. It was given to me years ago when I was going through a really hard time and I put it on my fridge...it was a great inspiration! I am not sure who... Read more
Looking like my picture!

Hello sparkfriends! I posted a new picture yesterday from my trip to Alaska last week. It wasn't until someone else said something (Empowered...you are truly a blessing) that I noticed that I might actually be at a place where I am starting... Read more

I think I fell off the wagon and it's gone on without me... Traveling has proven to be harder than I thought. I packed snacks....I had resolutions...I tried to tell everyone this was important to me and I would not be distracted... And... Read more
So long and thanks for all the fish!

(For those who may not know that is a book from Douglas Adams "Hitchhikers Guide" series) I wanted to have one last post before I take off on vacation and traveling. I am leaving by car to Washington state where we will visit family for sev... Read more
