The Culture of Community

Wednesday, February 23, 2011      13 comments

There’s a certain self-consciousness that goes with being overweight. We avoid mirrors like the plague. We have a tendency to keep our ideas to ourselves because after all who is really going to listen to a fat person? We sit at home a lot and w... Read more

An Ode (Sorta) To February

Tuesday, February 22, 2011      15 comments

I owe February an apology. I will admit that for the longest time I have hated and despised her. She is mostly cold, gray and uncaring. She offers little sunshine and no solace. The one day she does offer a sliver of hope is designed around bin... Read more

Moving Forward

Monday, February 21, 2011      31 comments

I have learned a lot in the past year or so and not all of it has to do with calories, exercise and weight loss. In my pre-Spark days the slightest set back would have given me justification to hole up with an array of bad foods and allow them t... Read more

An Admission

Thursday, February 17, 2011      24 comments

I have to admit something to you and I hope it doesnt change the way you feel about me, but if it does, well so be it. I cant get in to tofu. I cant. It has no taste. Please oh please do not tell me to bake, broil barbecue or stir fry it w... Read more

Holy Calories Batman, it's almost mid month and I haven't set any goals yet. Well that's not entirely true. I have set them just not published them. I finally lost some weight!!! My last loss was December 13 and I wont bore ya with the dra... Read more

A Perfect Day

Saturday, February 12, 2011      11 comments

“You have not lived a perfect day...unless you have done something for someone who will never be able to repay you.” Ruth Smeltzer Those have always been nice words to me. Maybe more, maybe a goal to shoot for, a high ideal to live by. S... Read more

Sometimes We Don't Know.....

Thursday, February 10, 2011      25 comments

I never met Amanda’s dad. If the weather breaks in the Western part of the state later today I am going to attend his funeral. I helped hire Amanda for a client of mine about five years ago and while I never knew her dad I knew he was a good man... Read more

No Matter How It's Packaged Stuffing Is Not Good For You

Wednesday, February 09, 2011      20 comments

When I joined Spark a little over a year ago I made a promise to myself that no matter how painful it was or how alone it made me feel I would never hide my feelings, my fears or my own self-doubts. If you read my blogs it’s often like riding Sp... Read more

A Walking Meditation

Tuesday, February 08, 2011      16 comments

I was looking for some meditations last night. I would like to start meditating before I excercise because I have noticed I am not as realxed as I should be prior to excercise and I end up with all sorts of little aches and pains. Anyways.... Read more

The Angels Among Us

Sunday, February 06, 2011      20 comments

We went to Louisville yesterday to do a bit of shopping and to visit the kids who lived there. It's been a tense few days, given what happened late last week and I feel physically and emotionally drained. By yesterday afternoon I was weary of di... Read more

Very Numb Right Now

Friday, February 04, 2011      45 comments

A young friend took his life very early yesterday morning. There is no doubt in my mind that in some form or fashion the story will be carried nationally because of the circumstances surrounding it. The young man left his suicide note on Faceboo... Read more

The Scale Is Not Moving But I Am

Thursday, February 03, 2011      17 comments

I celebrated my one year anniversary here at Spark by resetting my weight ticker and establishing a new goal for 2011. Since then, as of this morning, I have lost a total of one half pound. I have lost so little the Spark ticker refuses to ackno... Read more
