I rarely have the luxury of reading a lot of the great articles on SparkPeople and discover areas of the site I've never explored before. Today I realized that there were sections for Seniors. Not sure I wanted to admit I could fit into that g... Read more
I want to skip the Level 8 Trophy
Saturday, September 24, 2011      2 comments

I just noticed today that I'm shortly going to leave Level 7 Trophy for Level 8. I liked the Olympic style of Levels 1-7; I like Level 9's loving cup design. I don't like Level 8's circle. Too blah, not cute. I think the only thing it wi... Read more

This counts as beating 150, doesn't it?
Friday, September 16, 2011      1 comments

I've been at a bit of a plateau trying to move below 150. Today I got on the scale and when I moved the weight to the 150 point, it just completely clunked. So I set the weight on 100 and moved the slider weight a teensy bit beyond 1... Read more

Why I won't use Quibids (or any penny auction)
Sunday, September 04, 2011      3 comments

If I believed I could win an iPad for $22 on Quibids, then I'd have to believe in a weight loss fairy that involved no reduction in calories or tedious workouts. I was taught to pinch pennies -- we didn't have them. Each time you bid on Qu... Read more
