Well, I've hurt my knee somehow. I was walking yesterday to town for an appointment and it just started hurting so much that I slowly walked back home. I have a bad knee but it has been good for quite awhile. Now I'm on the sofa with my leg prop... Read more

Well, my better half left this morning for a two day business trip. And I have to be honest, the 'old me' would have used that as an excuse to have a 'party for one' in his absence. (Think calorie ridden junk food surrounding me as I lay on the ... Read more

I just finished reading a spark article on the the Biggest Losers program and was shocked to read that the best losers typically lose more than 100 pounds by the end of a 12 week period! 100 pounds!!!! I will be so pleased if I can accomplish th... Read more

Ah, the day after Valentine's Day... In my pre-spark days, a 'day after' would have been one filled with guilt, regret and a new resolution to "really start now, and this time I mean it!" Those chocolate candies, calorie laden dinner and wine... Read more

I was in a bit of a funk a few days ago and blogged about it. The responses from everyone were so warm and encouraging, I just knew I couldn't give up! And now I feel much better and got through the funk without isolating and binging. So than... Read more

Ok, Ok I admit it. I'm having a few down days. Don't really know why. I'm sticking to my food plan, am exercising, sparking and getting out in the fresh air when it's sunny. I have been losing weight and have even added some extra exercises that... Read more

Today I went back to the gym after being away for over a month due to hand surgery. It felt so good to be back and jump on my oh so familiar treadmill. I think back to the end of December, I was so afraid I would gain weight and lose momentum si... Read more

Well It's the 31st of January. I remember waking up the morning of January 1st, proud that I had not used the excuse of New Years Eve to 'party till I drop' and consume tons of unneeded calories. What a difference to go into this year already on... Read more

I decided to change my goal weight date to a later date, thereby giving me more time to lose, which means I need to lose a bit less each week. On the one hand it makes me feel relieved and on the other, it makes me feel somewhat defeated, as if ... Read more
