  • Food binge?

    6/28/2016 12:01:15 AM, by LGRASS23

    For me, on this plan, a food binge comes on when I get too hungry. Tomorrow I am going to want to binge because my calories today were just barely minimum. Tomorrow I will need to surround myself with safe foods. And...make sure I get enough from each meal to last to the next.... Read more

  • Team Motivation

    6/27/2016 5:06:56 PM, by FORMEROZ

    I've been doing okay at this whole SparkPeople thing. It's been 3 months and I'm down 22 pounds. I had hoped it would be more but I am choosing to look on the bright side and that's still 22 lbs less than what I was. The biggest challenge was going thru my first plateau which hit in May and la... Read more

  • A bump in the road

    6/27/2016 3:17:04 PM, by JUDITHROXANA

    I feel like this past week I have lost focus. We went out to eat and ice cream a couple of times. I am sure that I have gained at least a few pounds. Today I started going to the gym again. I tried a new gym and it was very nice although farther away. There is an organic health store next to i... Read more

  • Hubby's wheelchair is driving me crazy! Lots of aggravating noises, etc.

    6/24/2016 6:50:12 PM, by CTUPTON

    His only movement is riding around the house. Back and forth. Back and forth. There is not much room or variety: at the table then at his computer desk then at the TV to flip channels, then to the bedroom and back. Sometimes outside. He continually makes the chair recline and sit up straight --... Read more

I know this is key to a successful lifestyle change, but I seem to have this thing were, when exercising is going great, the... Read more

  • Challenges

    6/21/2016 10:21:17 PM, by LGRASS23

    I don't often challenge myself. Challenge creates risk of failure. 2 steps forward and 3 steps back, and my norm has been to be the failure. My setup this time is to create a box that I can easily stay inside. Isagenix didn't work for me before, too much starving. This time I pair it up with Spark ... Read more

    6/7/2016 9:20:33 AM, by JUDITHROXANA

    Before I go to the gym I decided to take a quick picture for this month. Yesterday someone that has not seen me in a while told me I have lost a lot of weight! Looks like inflammation on my leg seems to be going down a bit. Saw a new doctor who says I am looking good 6 months after surgery and g... Read more

    6/6/2016 4:05:36 PM, by PIROULINE

    Oh, the shame I feel when I see that it's been almost three years since my last blog post here. This is such a useful tool, and I've spent nearly three years not taking advantage of it. It feels like a "If you lived here, you'd be home by now." phenomenon. It really is, that way too. If I had Spark... Read more

    If this would last, I could actually keep up with most of my work. It is a huge "if" however. I am yesterday and today "digging out" from the unfinished tasks from the last 3 weeks. Each day I was doing a little, but things pile up. Like when I come home from any errands, I just don't g... Read more

I'm worried about making my goal and don't want to gain the weight back. Or just missing it all together. Many, many times I've "restarted"... Read more
