First let me say that it is hard for me to trust people with the title of Registered Dietician. When my type 2 onset diabetes was first diagnosed I got two different opinions on how to eat from two different RD in the same Hospital. Since then... Read more

A rather direct question from a new friend here focused me on something I've been thinking about for a long time. Now it is time to put those thoughts into writing. For me the only way that I'll be healthy when it comes to food is to keep a fo... Read more
Does the stomach change?

Yesterday I took a planned pig out day, as Dr. Oz calls them, but today I may be paying too high a price. Not a price of guilt, as I had planned on and enjoyed some Chicago Style pizza and a milkshake as part of a ball game trip. The price see... Read more

At my last weigh in I was down 40 pounds on my journey to health with Spark. I have now lost over 10% of my starting weight. In my work place the teachers are back, and many have made nice comments on my weight loss. So why must I now be care... Read more

While visiting with a mental health professional a couple of years ago I was given a diamond and I need to remind myself of those words. What I think controls what I feel which controls what I do.... Read more
Serving Size
Monday, August 06, 2012      7 comments

Mom always said for me to finish my plate. No matter the serving size, I had to finish my plate. So then when I started to get two plates of food of course I had to finish them. Oh yes, and if I added a salad plate filled with cheese, crouton... Read more
Can money make it harder to say no?
Monday, July 23, 2012      4 comments

It is still early on in my journey here on Spark, so I'm learning many things about myself. For example I get paid once a month, so sometimes there isn't much money toward the last two weeks of the month that I could spend on junk foods. No mo... Read more
Weight Did Not Move...

Well I knew this time would come. Not everyone's journey to health has a weight loss everyweek. At today's weigh in I stayed the same as last week. No I do not blame the milk shake that attacked me from out of nowhere in an earlier blog. I a... Read more
I got attacked by a milk shake......
Tuesday, July 17, 2012      3 comments

It just came at me from out of nowhere, tackled me, and forced me to drink it. Ok, time to be honest, I wanted a shake, and truth be told I enjoyed drinking the frozen concoction. It was hot and I had not eaten lunch, and was driving past an o... Read more

Watching Extreme Make Over Weight Loss Edition and I find the show motivating, but something the host said resonated with me. When talking about their exercise routine he points out that they do 2 hours or more of cardio per day. This statemen... Read more
Attitude about serving size
Saturday, July 14, 2012      3 comments

As I am enjoying a bowl of Raisin Bran cereal with skim milk in a measured serving size my mind drifts to the importance of serving size on my journey. Just to illustrate how poor my relationship has been with food, in the past I would have had... Read more

Yes, that is what the advertisement said as I tracked my SparkPoints. For my most recent spin of the points of the wheel I earned a free week at Curves. Ok, so I wish, but alas I understand us guy types are not allowed at Curves. Is curves di... Read more
Smaller Clothing
Thursday, July 12, 2012      5 comments

For some reason clothing is on my mind today. Actually there is a reason, my jeans or my shorts no longer fit. Yes, they are too big and my belt is on it's last notch. I own a pair of jeans that are two sizes smaller but they are a tad too ti... Read more
Break from Gym
Wednesday, July 11, 2012      5 comments

My body is telling me it needs rest from the gym. I've gone 5 days in a row, as my first week back in months to the gym. I had a goal of going two weeks straight to set up a habbit, but now i'm starting to think that was optimistic even to the... Read more
Back from the Gym
Monday, July 09, 2012      3 comments

Day four in a row at the gym and it is about this point where I get sore. No I'm not hitting a work out like Biggest Loser or any other crash weight loss TV shows. Still, I'm getting an effective workout program doing both cardio and strength ... Read more
