My reasons for wanting to get fit.
Sunday, June 22, 2008      8 comments

I think I know why I want to be fit but I don't have the reasons in writing and I should. Naturally this will give me more focus and clarity. 1. I want to look normal. 2. When I tell people my age, I want their next word to be "Wow". 3. I... Read more

We are probably actually going to have a summer soon, so I did some closet reorganizing in preparation. ALL of my fall/winter clothes are too big - instead of moving them to the back of the closet, I either threw them away or put them in a bag f... Read more

My strength training is way too scattered. I do something different every time when I should stick with a routine for at least two weeks, if not a month. This is just an extention of my scattered, unorganized mind. Something is better than not... Read more

Yipee, yipee, yaay! I'm down to 227.5 today. Because I ignored my actual weight for many years, I don't know when or where or what I was doing from about 175 to 240. The dresses I'm able to wear this summer are about 3 years old though. And I've... Read more

Hopefully, I'm back to losing again. But it will require that I be diligent with my exercise and track my calories. A friend remarked today that he was tired of having to watch what he eats. We talked about how there's no way around it. Even... Read more

A monthly assessment to keep me on course
Monday, May 05, 2008      2 comments

I never again want to be off track and stagnant in my weight loss for so long. Plateau, schmlateau - I was just not doing what I should have been doing. And there were indicators that should have been alarms. But my delusional fat mind was doing... Read more

That's my inner brats name. (If you know Angelica from the Rugrats, you get it) And she has been in charge for the past few months. I'm putting her in timeout. I've been putting my strategies in place: reminder notes all over the place, tracki... Read more
OK, so lesson learned the hard way that I want to pass on to new Sparkers
Thursday, May 01, 2008      5 comments

The Nutrition Tracker taught me sooo very much and I had very little trouble adapting my eating. So after many months of daily tracking, and losing weight, I reached Spark Stage 4 where tracking once or twice a week is recommended and I decided ... Read more

I know I'm not perfect but, geez.

Can't I at least get more consistent? I don't want to use the word never because I was sure I'd never be able to lose weight and I'm doing that, but I can't seem to exercise as much as I should. Although I do a lot more than I ever have before,... Read more
A week in the land of decadence

Not since I started on SP have I eaten so far off plan for so many days in a row. But considering how far off I could have gone, I did pretty well while in Las Vegas. I hope I didn't do too much damage. But SP always has exactly what I need ... Read more

I'll be visiting the grands in Las Vegas for the next week. I'll also be looking for a job there so I can relocate and actually get to be a full time grandma again. Although I'm not crazy about Vegas, I think it would be great to start a new lif... Read more

One day soon, the various aspects of my life will be more balanced. It'll be easier to keep all the plates spinning when they aren't so far apart. One part of life way up on the positive, productive end and another at the exact opposite pole. I ... Read more
Depression almost got me, but...
Thursday, April 10, 2008      7 comments

I was a tad down because of "stuff". This isn't good because it's hard to motivate yourself to do what you know you need to do, yada, yada. But yesterday, every time I was about to slump a little lower into my slight depression, I'd remember tha... Read more
