Day 57: Ooops

Monday, October 12, 2015      4 comments

I've been terrible about the blogging! The cats' weight loss has stalled though they are both playing more and they *have* lost weight. Personally, I'm at a three month low - weee! I'm done with all of my board exams and now I'm just w... Read more

Day 21: Happy Labor Day!

Monday, September 07, 2015      1 comments

Normally I have a pretty hard and fast rule about weighing in during that time of the month but when I'm only weighing in once a week it kind of changes things. Me: 143 - 145.2 - a 2.2 pound overall gain (2.9 pounds from last week) I'm so b... Read more

Day 14: Nose to the Grindstone

Monday, August 31, 2015      1 comments

Weight in time! Me: 143 - 142.3 - .7 pounds over all (0.1 gain from last week) Ginger: 14.3 - 13.9 - .4 pounds over all ( 0.8 gain from last week) Renni: 17.2 - 16.6 - .6 pounds over all (0.2 loss from last week) I'm actually reall... Read more

Day 7: Time Flies

Monday, August 24, 2015      2 comments

Weigh in time! Me: 143 to 142.2 - that's -.8 pounds! Ginger: 14.3 to 13.1 - that's 1.2 pounds (which is a little much but I'm wondering how much of that is the change to the new food) Renni: 17.2 to 16.8 - that's .4 pounds (or maybe Ren... Read more

Day 1: It Begins Again

Monday, August 17, 2015      4 comments

It always begins again. I think people forget that lifestyle change is a cycle. Maybe on your first go around you stop drinking pop. Then a couple years later you get the itch to "get healthy again" and you start to up you water. Maybe two years... Read more

Day -2: Graduation

Saturday, August 15, 2015      3 comments

One year ago today was my last post. I think it's a little funny; I always said that it would be school ending that allowed me to get back into the lifestyle that I deserve. Here I am: graduation day. I'm alternating between manically breaking i... Read more

Day 41: Justificiation

Tuesday, July 15, 2014      3 comments

I would have to say that one of the most important lessons that I have learned since starting on SP is listening to myself. I do need to go into work today because I have a request, but I'm not going to go to school. I can feel the hairline crac... Read more

Day 40

Monday, July 14, 2014      3 comments

The water weight is coming off in earnest now and I'm much less bloated. Last week was a bit of a one-two punch, but I managed to weather it just fine. I'm still here! Read more

Day 39

Sunday, July 13, 2014      1 comments

Overall last week was disappointing. In the past I would have stopped logging on to SP and then, three months later, thought to myself, "Oh hey, I should get back on that." But this week I still logged on every day. I have maintained my 39 day s... Read more

Day 36

Thursday, July 10, 2014      2 comments

I'm trying not to feel discouraged because I know that TOM is coming, but I've been hovering at the top of my weight range for the maintenance challenge for almost 5 days now. I know it's not real weight gain because I also have all the other s... Read more

Day 35

Wednesday, July 09, 2014      1 comments

So I've noticed a problem that's contributing to me eating poorly: I'm so focused on making my minimum calorie goal I'm making bad nutrition decisions. Then I retain water. Then I get mad at myself. Then I start to make more bad decisions. ... Read more

Day 34: Yesterday was just a lot of little things

Tuesday, July 08, 2014      2 comments

A lot of little things that pile into a big pile of blah. It was not a good day. As positive as I tried to stay all of the little frustrations just kept coming. As soon as I got over one, another one would start. And this morning didn't start me... Read more

Day 33: Starting step 2 a little differently

Monday, July 07, 2014      2 comments

We're supposed to start step 2 of the PPC with gradually adding foods back in to see what you can tolerate and then start incorporating other lifestyle changes. Given how my body reacted to this weekend, I'm putting off adding anything back with... Read more

Happy Belated 4th of July!

Sunday, July 06, 2014      1 comments

I think this is the first weekend out of town in my spark history of going out of town that I maintained my log in streak! Wee! We left Thursday even, spent Friday at the in-law's and came back for work yesterday. Given my history with perf... Read more

Week 4

Wednesday, July 02, 2014      1 comments

Missed updating yesterday because I prioritized studying for my quiz that morning. I hadn't realized how motivating posting in the morning was because I did horribly yesterday. I think the only goal I met was my water goal. :( But Wednesday is a... Read more
