Friday, September 04, 2009      2 comments

Remember me? I'm sad to say that I fell off the SparkPeople wagon. I love this site and all of you. It's because of this website and this team that I lost 45 pounds from last September through January. I tried to get back to it in March ... Read more

Hello to all of my SparkFriends! You may have noticed that I've not been around lately. Since New Year's, work has been crazy busy. I've been working anywhere from 60 - 70 hours per week. I've been way too tired to exercise. I've also l... Read more

I weighed in at 159 this morning! Woohoo! I haven't weighed under 160 since before I was pregnant with my first child back in 1995. Some days I just sit here and think, "I can't believe I'm actually doing this." Then I just have to lo... Read more

Well, I've made it through Week 1 of the New You Bootcamp. It's really helped me to get my strength training in. It's interesting using an exercise ball. I have never used one before. I really wasn't interested in using one. However, ... Read more

How many of you are participating in SparkPeople's New You BootCamp? I've decided to give it a shot. I hate watching videos on the computer, but I thought I could give it a shot for 10 minutes a day. I gained some weight back over the ... Read more

Today is my 13th wedding anniversary. The hubby and I are celebrating (as we do every year) by watching a 'marathon' of our creation on tv and going out to eat. This year we are watching the first season of Survivor. Wow! That show has chan... Read more
Went shopping today!

I received a VISA gift card for Christmas, so I decided to go shopping today. As I've said before, I'm not really much of a shopper, but I was hoping to catch some good after Christmas sales to help add some better fitting clothes into my wardr... Read more

I am officially on vacation! Woohoo!!! I'm not going anywhere. I'm just taking a week off of work. My kids are gone to the grandparents for the week. I'm going to use this week to get back on track. I haven't lost any weight in ... Read more
Where does the time go?

Wow! So, I have been MIA for the past week. Sorry about that! With getting ready for Christmas and my job (working lots of overtime!), I just can't seem to find much extra time these days. Even my exercise has suffered. I'm still gett... Read more

WOW! I weighed in this morning, and couldn't believe my eyes. I have officially lost forty pounds! That just seems so huge! Never in a million years did I think that I could do that... just another 30 to go to reach my goal. It feels... Read more
I Can Cross My Legs
Wednesday, December 10, 2008      2 comments

Doesn't that sound like a silly sentence? Well, crossing my legs while sitting in a chair was something that I could not easily do for a long time. In order to do so, I would have to either hold onto my leg with my hand, wrap my foot around th... Read more

This is a super terrific day for me! I actually cried when I stepped on the scale this morning! I weighed in at 167.5 pounds! This is a HUGE deal for two reasons. One: I have now passed the halfway mark to my final weight loss goal! ... Read more

Wow! What a couple of days. Between last night and today, I spent seven hours cooking and baking for today's big meal. We only had seven today for Thanksgiving dinner. We usually have at least twice that many, so this was a small crowd. ... Read more
The Banquet
Saturday, November 22, 2008      1 comments

In my last blog post, I talked about clothes shopping for the banquet that I had coming up. Below is a picture of me at the banquet. The lights were dim, so the picture is kind of dark. I was kind of disappointed that my hair flopped. LOL! ... Read more
