Another month has passed and guess what? I have a milestone to report - yesterday I saw my heaviest scale reading ever! ... Read more
Beating the winter blues!
Sunday, January 24, 2021      2 comments

Hi sparkfriends! This month is proving to be very mentally challenging as I really do not like winter, plus we would normally spend the second half of January in Spain, but this year we are stuck at home, like so many people. I got a ... Read more

I'm slightly delayed in posting this blog as I have been working on creating new habits. This week I am trying a meal plan structure of cereal, soup and a square meal, with small snacks in between. It's not going too badly so far :) I... Read more
Bit of an update

I hope everyone was able to celebrate Christmas that wanted to. I had a lovely time, just with hubby and his parents. A silver lining of this year is that it has really highlighted what is important and made me much less complacent. I most... Read more

Here we are, in the run up to Christmas! As I was just saying to my hubby, it is amazing how circumstances have put the magic back into Christmas for us. From March to September, we were only going to the in-laws' for Sunday dinner and wer... Read more
The sunset of 2020

Coming towards the end of the year, I always get a bit melancholy, especially in a year when I have not been very successful towards my goals. 2020, of course, is another level of disappointing! So right now I am fighting with my thoughts ... Read more
Review of 12th October - 1st November
Monday, November 02, 2020      1 comments

October turned out to be a very rough month. I came down with a cold with the fun side effect of dizziness, caused by congestion in my ears. I am only now starting to see past it, I guess I have become more used to it. The biggest im... Read more
A weekly review - w/c 5th October 2020
Monday, October 12, 2020      1 comments

The fact the scale went up again this morning gives a fairly good impression of how the last week went. I was still eating too much! However, I managed to create a 7 day streak (today will be day 8) of getting at least 2000 steps per day, ... Read more
A weekly review - w/c 28th September 2020
Monday, October 05, 2020      2 comments

My first week of trying to stick to my 2k steps per day has been a mixed bag. Some days I exceeded it and some days it just didn't happen. That's ok though, because no one is perfect! My weekly weigh in showed a 1.2lb gain today. No surpris... Read more

Well, my break from all things weight related lasted a week, then I saw the result on the scale the next week and thought, I can't let this go on!! So for the last week I have been quite reflective and from today I am starting a new plan. ... Read more

5 years!

Today marks 5 years since I created this account (I've had previous accounts and given up) and I am definitely not where I thought I would be by now in terms of weight loss progress, but I am very proud of myself for sticking with it, albeit to ... Read more
Ooo it's August!

Where the heck did July go?! I really don't understand how, in a time period where I am pretty much confined to the house, time is passing so quickly! But, here we are. 7 months down in this very strange year. In my case, 7 months down... Read more
Monday mind-dump
Monday, July 27, 2020      2 comments

The scale went up again this week. OK, time of the month is around, but it's still not good to see! But this is the start of a new week and a new chance to get this right, or closer to right than I have been doing! Whilst I am trying to ke... Read more
Taking a wide-angle lens to life
Friday, July 24, 2020      7 comments

When you have a lot of weight to lose, it is very easy to get obsessed with those numbers, be it step counts, numbers on the scale or tape measurements. Over the last few days, I have come to realise that I need to look at my life as a whole. I ... Read more
