Weekly Weight Countdown (for reference)
Since January 5, 2013, I've been updating my weekly weigh-ins on my Sparkpage "Goals" sidebar. The list got too long to really fit there properly, but I don't want to lose the information. Also, I'm going to switch to a monthly weigh-in for 2014... Read more
No, I didn't have any pizza - and that's ok!
I work in an office where there's a lot of food. Candy in the work area, donuts in the lunch room, and occasionally pizza-wherever-you-look, on "pizza day." For one entire year now, I have been declining pizza. That's about a dozen pizza-eating ... Read more

This is NOT going to get me down! (Body image adjustment, with pics)
Ok. So. Down 50#. In one-derland. Feeling good, confident... walking tall, smiling often. Can this be undone with one click of a digital camera?

Rolling back the years, 91 steps at a time
This past weekend I had the opportunity to do something I haven't done in many years - go hiking in the sub-alpine meadows of Manning Park in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
I used to go there often. Initially into the front-country ca... Read more
That Numbers Game...
WELL it was bound to happen eventually! 26th weigh-in, and for the first time since the beginning of January, I have recorded a "gain" on the scale.
I guess I am human after all! I have to say, I was really starting to wonder when the Scale... Read more

I've lost a kayak!! Ha ha ha ha ha!!
Soooooo today I was roaming around an outdoors/camping store. One entire floor of this shop is devoted to boating/fishing. They have a dozen or so assorted kayaks laying around all over the place.

I've... LEFT THE PLUS SIZE SECTION BEHIND.
Went to the mall today to do some shopping and while I was there, got it in my head that I could maybe use a new outfit, and al... Read more
Eating on the run - no fun!
I've been very conscientious about preparing and enjoying my meals since embarking on this "better way of relating to food" project. This has meant some big changes to my daily routine, to incorporate cooking/meal-prep time. It's been time well ... Read more
Enjoying a vacation without losing ground
So! I spent 7 days in Maui, and upon returning home, weighed EXACTLY what I'd weighed when I left. And in fact, as it turns out, I must have actually LOST weight (the loss having been hidden by water retention or whatever other factor), as my we... Read more
