Scale is Not Moving- And I know why
Last week I gained 0.5 and this week I lost it. But my decisions have crept into more bad than good. I am not aiming for a high number every week, but I do want to keep on around a 1lb loss weekly.
There has been less thought behind my mea... Read more
Rough Couple of Days
I haven't ate the best the last 2 days. Still it was better than I would have been doing a year ago, and still averaging 1 Sprite a week and NO COCA COLA since beginning of year. Sprite doesn't hook me like coca cola does, and sometimes I want... Read more
Better version of Me
I always struggle losing weight. So many reasons. I used to compare myself to others, and since my hair will always be thin and my nose imperfect losing weight won't change that. I used to struggle every time with becoming obsessed about food... Read more
I have eaten mostly poorly the last two days, but yesterday was a planned birthday celebration for the family at Maggiano's. Italian! They did post their calories, which was nice (and scary). Long story short, I got exactly what I wanted (fet... Read more
Hello Thursday :)
So far down 5 lbs in 3 weeks and 7 lbs from this time last year. I had a couple of days of slippage the past two. Oddly enough, it was my days off. Ok, not so odd, it happens every time. The best part was I was in a bad mood Wednesday. No r... Read more
Small Steps and Attainable Goals
I have lost 3.4 lbs in about three weeks since I rejoined Spark People. Really, my first goals were to get back on board, eat smaller portions, eat at home more often, and get soda out of my diet. My main goal is to lose 1 lb a week, since I h... Read more
Back for More
I have NOT been attending to my well being at all in the last 10 months since I have been on here. I am pleased to see I really haven't gained any since then. I feel like I have. I just don't feel that good overall, and this is a driving forc... Read more
Well, I only lost 0.6 lbs this week. I could have tried a lot harder, for sure. In fact, I mostly sat in front of the computer or in the chair reading. The first day last week I hurt myself doing some spring cleaning after that gall bladder s... Read more
One week after gall bladder surgery
When I weighed in last Monday, I was at 215 lbs- my highest ever! I have lost 4 lbs this week, BUT I had gall bladder surgery and did not feel like eating for half the week. I can not say I have made the best choices the second half of the wee... Read more
I'm here :)
I think I restarted Spark last Sunday and I must admit I have made little real progress. But I have made a bit of mental progress. My mood is better, in part to better weather I'm sure. I haven't felt bad either. I have not made great choice... Read more
It's been a year
I haven't used Spark People in a year....and gained 13 lbs. I noticed my clothing getting tighter even befor the holidays.
So why am I back now? I have had a rough month and turns out I have gallstones and am getting the gallbladder out ne... Read more
Not doing so well eating. Haven't felt the best on and off for a month now. I am having some sort of outer ear infection for the past week. Haven't made it to the doctor yet.
My willpower always slips when I don't feel well. But, I can't... Read more
I made bad eating choices with very little exercise last week. I also gained 1.5 lbs back. And two sodas! One was planned with my son's birthday party.....the other was not. But, I have done well besides in talking myself out of soda.

6 weeks until Vacation/6 more pounds to lose
Only 6 weeks until Vegas and I REALLY want to lose another 6 lbs to make it 1 lb every week.
The last few days I haven't done as well. Not particularly bad, just not as good as I have been. Interestingly enough, I have added some walking in ... Read more
Figuring things out and it's going good!
First, I lost another 1.6 lbs from Monday. Because of my work schedule I won't be able to weigh again until a week from Saturday, if I want to weigh in at the same time every day. And I do want to keep it consistent. So that's 3.2 lbs in 3 we... Read more
