Introduction to the Beck Diet Solution

Tuesday, November 25, 2014      21 comments

I find it interesting that this program is called a "Solution". The book that helped me MOST in earlier years (pre-Spark) was one called "The Solution: 6 Winning Ways to Permanent Weight Loss" by Laurel Mellin, M.A., R.D. That book was develo... Read more

When preparation meets opportunity

Monday, November 24, 2014      27 comments

When preparation meets opportunity, what happens? Success! This is true in every area of life. Diet and exercise, weight maintenance, job searches, career changes, or... retirement (which is just another form of job change, no?) For ... Read more

Doing the homework

Sunday, November 23, 2014      17 comments

I don't know about you, but I find that once I actually start doing the whatever I have been avoiding, I feel better. This weekend I started doing the retirement planning homework in earnest. Of course the seminar I had attended gave me some v... Read more

Different FORMS of tracking

Saturday, November 22, 2014      66 comments

As I said in yesterday's blog, there's not tracking, and then there is not tracking. Several of those who commented picked up on the fact that sometimes "not tracking", one is still tracking. Mentally tracking. Obviously the ultimate tr... Read more

Day five of a no-track week

Friday, November 21, 2014      26 comments

There is not tracking, and there is not tracking! Seriously, I think more than a few of you know what I mean. Bottom line, whether you write it down, enter it in a computer, or check boxes or slide windows... tracking our food intake doesn't m... Read more

Day four of the edge walk... adaptations for the seminar

Thursday, November 20, 2014      26 comments

Accepting that despite my panic over the 24 hour slip (Sunday after supper to Monday supper), I was already in a good place, and deconstructing some of the emotional components that set up some of Sunday evening and Monday's choices... I went in... Read more

Day three of the edge walk... backing away...

Wednesday, November 19, 2014      21 comments

Still not tracking the food, but yesterday I ate what was in the bag, and what I planned... in short a normal day. Break walks only for exercise (losing my "work week hustle" fitbit challenge, but there are some serious contenders in that group... Read more

Continuing the walk on the edge...

Tuesday, November 18, 2014      23 comments

I said the tale would be continued, and it is. Yesterday I ventured into the realm of foods I don't normally eat any more. Sunday's excess was all on things I had in the house, which as my sister can tell you, doesn't include a lot of so-calle... Read more

Always on the edge of the cliff

Monday, November 17, 2014      25 comments

Hi, my name is Barb, and I am a compulsive overeater. Or you might say an emotional overeater. But what emotion WAS that, anyway? This is one of those post-binge "what was I thinking/feeling" blogs! OK, the facts... I did a few rash thin... Read more

A week of remembered birthdays

Sunday, November 16, 2014      19 comments

Today was my great-great-grandmother's birthday. I hold fond memories of my one any only visit to see her, because she lived several states away. At the time I was ten years old, and she was 101. She had been four years old when Abraham Linco... Read more

Ariel and the snow and the TV motivation

Saturday, November 15, 2014      18 comments

For anyone who is new to my blogs, I'm a huge fan-girl of the IronMan world Championships (triathlon - swim, bike, run). At 12:30 my time today, NBC aired their version of this year's event. Of course, I'd already followed it on live internet ... Read more

Roll your own rules, write your own program

Friday, November 14, 2014      26 comments

Once upon a time... on January 18, 1997, I wrote in my personal journal: "frankly, I'm tired of reading other people's success stories. I want to write my own, complete with my inner fears & doubts, the things that inspire me, the things that ... Read more

Last rule of the twelve, we're almost done with the review of this little book by Barbara Berkeley, M.D. "Refuse to Regain! 12 Tough Rules to Maintain the Body You've Earned". Fellow Sparklers, you are going to LOVE rule 12, as I do. Remi... Read more

Refuse to Regain: 12 tough rules - rule 11

Tuesday, November 11, 2014      21 comments

Still working my way through the review of this little book by Barbara Berkeley, M.D. "Refuse to Regain! 12 Tough Rules to Maintain the Body You've Earned". We're almost done... I've been looking forward to rule 11 the whole time. Reminde... Read more

Refuse to Regain: 12 tough rules - rule 10

Monday, November 10, 2014      22 comments

Back to the rules! Constance (my competitor persona) and Rocky (my scrambling to organize and clean persona) have had their turns in the blog foreground, but I haven't finished my review of the thin little book by Barbara Berkeley, M.D. "Refuse... Read more
