This year started on a low note. We all got the flu! And that is a terrible virus---I realized at one point that even my teeth hurt! And the effects lasted for, well, forever! I was too sick to exercise for three weeks. That's the longest I've g... Read more
It sneaked up on me!

Holiday eating, that is! Thanksgiving brought some unwanted pounds and now Christmas candy and cookies are trying to do the same! So, this has to ... Read more

I have been a terrible slacker for the last 10 days or so. I found out that I have bursitis in my left elbow, and I've had to take it easy. I tried going to aerobics a couple of times, but not being able to move my left arm much threw off my ent... Read more
You got...bursitis?

It was a complete surprise to me to get a diagnosis of bursitis in my elbow last week. I thought I'd gotten some strange bug bite because my elbow suddenly got all swollen and black and blue. I did not remember banging it or hurting it in any wa... Read more

Three years with Spark! emoticon And that is just about how long it has taken me to get where I want to be. In Ja... Read more
I guess I can say it.

I'm proud of myself! I've finally---after two years of trying---gotten it all put together, and I'm eating right, getting enough exercise and starting to see my progress. I've lost a couple pounds and I can SEE it, which makes a huge difference.... Read more
And this is what was needed...

I'm writing this down so I'll have a record of what it took me to start making progress...finally. 1. To read on Spark People and finally understand that "you can't exercise your way out of a bad diet." 2. To track my food faithfully a... Read more
This is how long it takes!

I've been a Spark member for almost 3 years now. I've joined challenges (I did 365 days of consecutive exercise, for example) and been religious. The farther I go, the better I get at tracking, exercising, and sparking. And now I am so happy ... Read more
A month of progress, although the scale doesn't show it.

That's right: I can not get that needle to move! But I know I am making progress because I can feel it and, if I squint, I think I can see a little improvement in the muffin top. ... Read more
It's working!

This should be filed under: We told you so! I've been tracking my food religiously for the last few weeks, trying hard to stay within the limits and eat right. The results? I've lost weight! Hard to believe, isn't it? Well, I've shed a poun... Read more
Still no weight loss, but progress.

I've been tracking every day and now I can see how many extra calories I'd been sneaking in around the edges. When I actually track everything, I can see that I was eating a minimum of 200-300 extra calories every day. Well, I've stopped. Not th... Read more
I'm making progress, no matter what it looks like!

I'm pretty sure I haven't lost any weight yet on my quest to lose 10 pounds by May 1, but, you know what? I don't care. I am making progress anyway! Why? Because I have my snacking under control. The biggest test was when I made those favorites-... Read more
Okay, Day 6

Seems like I've been on my quest to lose ten pounds way longer than just 6 days. I have, of course, since I've been exercising as much as I could since the summer in the hope that it would "just happen" for me. But now I've gotten serious aga... Read more

Two years ago today I was diagnosed with Bell's palsy. That's a nasty little virus. I had no idea at the time just how nasty! It took me months to recover and I still have some residual effects. Getting used to being "sick" was so hard for... Read more
Day 2

Day 2 of my quest to lose 10 pounds and I'm winning! I filled up with acorn squash, oranges, and grapes yesterday so I did not "need" dessert. Hurray for me! I also went to evening Zumba and worked as hard as I could. I have to miss morning aero... Read more
