Virtual Walk Around Nova Scotia - week 1
A couple of my Spark Friends have gently reminded me that I promised to start a new virtual walk. Thank you, Kate and Audra, for giving me the push I needed.
I grew up in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, a city across the harbour from Halifax, the ... Read more
What's Changed?... Me!
So what's going on? I recommitted to SP on January 4 after regaining 12 lbs last year. Since then, I've lost 4 lbs and am exercising regularly. I'm switching things around in the house, planning lots of sewing projects, sleeping better and sta... Read more
Pride goeth before a fall...
I have to admit I've been feeling really good about my "fresh start" on SP a couple of weeks ago (see previous blog). Well last night I crashed in a big way. I wrote just yesterday to a Spark Friend saying that my binges were fewer and not nea... Read more
For the first time in months, I'm really excited about SP! I feel like I did when I first started the program 5 years ago.
I got careless, exercised less and didn't track my food carefully or honestly... a few cookies can't really hurt, ... Read more
As most of you know, I've chosen to limit the number of Spark Friends I add so that I can really get to know those I correspond with.
Today I've decided to cut back on the time I spend on teams as well. Currently, each morning I spend ab... Read more
My DH goes to the Ukrainian Catholic church (he's Irish, English and German, but that's another story), so we celebrate two Christmases each year.
Today is Ukrainian Christmas Day, 12 days after December 25. Traditionally the Ukrainian Ch... Read more
Has GOT to be better, weight-wise than 2015.
My plan for 2015 went all to heck. No legitimate reasons; I simply ate too much and exercised too little, promising myself that I would "start tomorrow". The holidays were an absolute disaste... Read more
Some people have kindly asked
about our last trip. It had its good points, but was definitely not as good as the spring trip.
The good points included a stay at the Opryland Resort (ridiculously large, but worth a visit), attending a service at Emmanuel Baptist Church ... Read more
Disney World with my daughter
When our children graduated from university, I took each of them on a special trip of their choice... all except my oldest daughter, Jennifer, who was starting a job out of town the week after graduation, and who was getting married in the fall.... Read more
I've cancelled most of my team and newsletter subscriptions. What's the point of getting lots of points when the pounds aren't coming off???
I need to hunker down and WORK at this program. I know the program makes sense, but I haven't b... Read more
Do You Try New Recipes Very Often?
I must admit that I don't. I've spent hours yesterday and today going through magazines, clipping decorating ideas, recipes, knitting patterns and exercises. Then I got out my recipe files - 1 envelope each for appetizers, breakfast, beef, brea... Read more
Today I Lost a Spark Friend...
... I'm so glad I found her again! As some of you know, I limit my number of Spark Friends. Probably because I think of you as penpals, and want to keep the number low so that I can keep in touch with you regularly. I may never meet any of yo... Read more
Do you really believe...
that you can reach the goal weight you set for yourself?
That's one of the questions in an article I read yesterday on the SP site, under the heading, Weight Loss articles. The article is called, " An Obesity Expert Tells Us What Really Wo... Read more
Bit of a Wake-Up Call
As most of you know, I've been sick for over a month, with various diagnoses ranging from a virus to bronchitis. I've been on Flovent for 2 weeks and an antibiotic for one, both prescribed by a doctor at walk-in, as I couldn't ge... Read more
Taking a fresh look at my plan
My goal weight, from the time I joined SP in 2011, has been 150 lbs. Once I actually got down to 159 point something; another time to 161... then each time I scuttled back to the comfort of the 170's.
Today I decided to rethink the proce... Read more
