Teeter Tottering
Tuesday, May 19, 2009      1 comments

Recently I've been going from one extreme to another. One week I'm insanely focused and disciplined--I want to lose weight, to be lean and fit. The next I spin out of control, f... Read more
Looking Ahead
Thursday, May 07, 2009      1 comments

As I gain confidence that I'll reach my goal weight, I've been thinking more about maintenance and what it will take to keep the weight off. I've never consciously worked to maintain my weight before. It's pretty much been Weight Loss Mode or Ea... Read more
Random thoughts

There are so many things spinning around my head these days. I thought I'd touch on a few: I wanted to post pictures of my pre-Spark trip to Vegas and my trip last week to show my progress, but they're oriented sideways and I can't for the ... Read more
The Fat Ceiling
Wednesday, April 15, 2009      1 comments

During the last presidential campaign, there was a lot of discussion about the glass ceiling. Would Hillary Clinton be able to break it? Today I'm setting for myself another kind of ceiling, one that I don't want to break: the Fat Ceiling. ... Read more
Measuring up

Hey, if I'm going to be obsessed I may as well go all the way, eh? I didn't take any measurements at the very beginning of this journey. But if my current goal is to rid my body... Read more
Birthday Reflections
Tuesday, April 07, 2009      0 comments

My birthday was last week--42. SparkPeople sent me a pretty inspirational birthday message (before my BF wished me happy birthday BTW). I've been spending a lot of time looking back at where I was last year. And until recently I've spent a bit t... Read more
Obsessions and revelations
Wednesday, March 25, 2009      1 comments

Last week I was obsessed. I started tracking food again after a long hiatus. I weighed myself every day. I exercised. I fantasized about shedding all of my expendable fat. It was heady! Weekend arrives. My obsession becomes focused on treat... Read more
I did it again
Monday, March 16, 2009      2 comments

I might just have regained my focus. I tracked my food again today. Over the weekend I didn't manage to track, but I definitely had a pretty good grip on my eating. And I took my first bike ride of the season yesterday. It felt really good, and ... Read more
This time?
Thursday, March 12, 2009      0 comments

Well, I had intended to blog on my Sparkaversary. And I didn't. Because I had hoped to report I was back on track, and I wasn't. I've been in denial. The clothes I bought after I lost weight still fit, so I didn't figure I had a big problem... Read more
Anniversary approaching, taking stock

My one-year Sparkiversary is just around the corner, and it has me taking stock. I just returned from my annual ski vacation. I return each year to Jackson Hole where I... Read more
Focusing on Strength
Thursday, November 27, 2008      0 comments

Despite a 10 lb weight gain from my low in June, I look at myself in the mirror and note I can still see some muscles poking through. I'm not sure what those muscles are. One set is my hip flexors, I think, or maybe my groin muscles. They fascin... Read more
Weigh in--reckoning time
Friday, October 24, 2008      1 comments

What a long, strange trip it's been! I've been "off the wagon" for five months if I can be real with myself. There were times when my eating was atrociously out of control. I could tell I've put a little of the weight I lost back on, but all my ... Read more
Lesson Learned (I hope)
Thursday, July 17, 2008      1 comments

Okay, it's been a tough couple of weeks. I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I was on an emotional roller coaster. I still am (new relationship), and feel like I've been losing a bit of myself in the process. I think I'm ready to take myself ... Read more
My Body is a Temple, My Body is a Temple, My Body...
Thursday, July 10, 2008      0 comments

I've been abusing my body. It doesn't feel good and it doesn't make me feel good about myself. I think a big part is that I haven't been exercising as much as I'd like. When I exercise, it's much easier for me to keep track with my food intake, ... Read more
It must be muscle
Thursday, July 03, 2008      1 comments

I weighed myself this a.m. and the scale said I'm up one (or maybe even two) pound(s). I haven't really strayed on diet or exercise, so I've decided it's because I continue to build muscle. ... Read more
