I've spent the last five days in bed. I've got pnemonia, an infection of the lungs, throat/tonsils, "sinus", and right ear. Anyway, April 1st was my 1 year anniversary with Spark... and I'm reinvigorated to continue losing weight. I'm going for ... Read more
The word change is interesting. I remember going on a trip with my mom during the pre-Edmonton days, and hearing the song "Change - will do you good". I sang along with it. Near the end, my mom was being jokingly upset, and said something like "... Read more
I have specificially not told people about the meds before because Iíve been worried about a reaction. But this site is quite different. And really, if Iím going to progress, I need to be honest with myself.
Iíve been extremely consistent ... Read more
Well, I figured that since Iíve been neglecting the other couple of sites I go to, I might as well have some form of journal over here. Let me start by saying that friends often call me ďMerĒ (pronounced Mare)Ö Mer in French is a pretty common w... Read more
I'm not sure how I feel about rest days. Let me tell you all what I've been doing in general. Unless I know I'm going to be particularly lazy (and not go to the gym, or do any major sort of exercise) I work with weights either legs... Read more
Today was a gym day. I did 20 minutes on the elliptical, did my weight training (twice) and then another 20 on the elliptical.
After all that, I missed my bus, and walked all the way home again. Twice in one week! Look at me go... Read more

I didn't realize it had been so long since I updated this journal.
The Christmas party went really well. I looked great, and I felt relatively great. I felt like I fit in, which was a nice change. And there were people that were heavier tha... Read more
Don't give up - Give MORE!
After thinking about "don't give up" I think that probably IS my secret. I've been through the weeks (months!) where there has been no weight loss... But now I don't get down hearted about it. The weight WILL come off, but only if I stick with i... Read more
Today is the worst day in a long time. I'm sure there are causes and reasons... but it doesn't change the fact that today is really really horrible. I'm very depressed.... Read more

I'm pretty sad at the moment, and it's one of those "I don't know why" times. I DO know what irritants I have that I'm currently stressing out about, but as Niilo says, they really aren't as bad as I think they are.
I'll write more about m... Read more

Well... I've been contemplating leaving my job for some time now... and tomorrow, I will likely have a meeting with my boss. She was on holidays last week, and so when more issues came up, I couldn't go to her. With the promotion I got, I was gi... Read more
November 7, 2006
Well, for almost a week I've been sad. I've had happy moments, granted, but overall the feeling has been pretty low. No, there's nothing *wrong* but things just don't feel right.
Today I weighed-in at 165.6. I do realize that number still m... Read more
(three things... from a group I'm in)
Since joining SparkPeople in April of this year, there are about three HUNDRED things I've noticed about myself. Here's the top three:
1. I *can* lose weight without pills, surgery, etc.
2. I have muscles under all that fat. Who knew!??... Read more

Tomorrow we are having some big news at work. It's SO big, that my non-caring company is taking us all out to a super fancy restaurant for dinner. (Dinner, drinks, dessert - all paid for.) This is unheard of. I've been with the company for a re... Read more
