  • The Unexpected Gift

    8/26/2016 11:19:42 PM, by RILEE77

    I write regularly (or try to write regularly) on a WordPress blog that I have made into my own creative outlet over the years... Today, I feel my post there is screaming at me to share here. So, here it is.... I was given a beautiful gift today by an unknowing individual. Actually, I was given ... Read more

  • Day 23 Check In!

    8/25/2016 4:39:50 PM, by RILEE77

    So... I'm still slacking. That's a big negative for me, but I like to believe that in a way this very action is what makes me push harder. Because of not giving it the attention I feel it deserves, I am more focused on pushing for that attention. Maybe that only makes sense to me. Maybe ... Read more

  • Summer Reflections

    8/20/2016 12:52:45 PM, by IAMGLENDA2

    67 We've reached the end of the Summer 5% Challenge, and I am pretty disappointed in some ways and pleased in others. The goal was to lose 5% in 8 weeks. I lost 2.7%, or 6 pounds in 8 weeks. I'm disappointed because I have not been working out, not even taking walks, regularly. I think I averaged on... Read more

    I haven't forgotten about you! Okay, I have, just a little. I haven't forgotten about me though! I have been consistently plugging away at building a healthier me... ever so sloooowwwlllyyy. Yes, that's how slow it feels. I gained a few pounds back over the last few weeks. Likely a resul... Read more

  • Ketosis!

    8/9/2016 5:42:35 AM, by KARENLARS125

    I've been on this ketogenic diet for a few weeks now and although I'm losing weight and feeling GREAT I haven't actually tested to see if I'm in ketosis. Well, yesterday I went out and bought some Ketostix and also ordered a blood Ketone monitor and strips from Amazon. I tested using the strips, and... Read more

  • Another Week Begins

    Well here I am at 4:30 am and already feeling ready for the day! I joined a new Challenge this week and committed to increase my exercise to 10 minutes daily up from 5 and I'm actually doing 15-- just stretching, mind you, cuz if you've read my page, you know I don't like to sweat, lol! But it reall... Read more

  • Having a good Sunday!

    8/7/2016 5:17:21 AM, by KARENLARS125

    Today I am starting with a new thing-intermittent fasting. I am eating dinner then just having coffee/water until lunch. On my ketogenic LCHF diet I'm really not hungry so it shouldn't be too difficult. What IS going to be difficult is that today I am going to try to give up my addiction to Diet Pep... Read more

    8/6/2016 6:16:00 AM, by KARENLARS125

    When I woke up this morning I wasn't feeling to good, but I logged on to Spark People, read some success stories, went through Spark Coach, did some stretching exercises, drank some coffee, spun the wheel for my teams, and I have to say, I'm feeling pretty darn good! It's amazing what some positive ... Read more

  • Day 3 Check In!

    8/5/2016 12:16:03 PM, by RILEE77

    I officially need to stop for a bathroom break more frequently than our nearly five year old daughter. This is a good thing though, it means that I'm hydrated! Yesterday I had another doctors appointment. I've seen more doctors this past month than I have in years. Which means that my blood pre... Read more

  • Please read and share! My team needs help!

    8/5/2016 11:14:09 AM, by TRINITYEMMALISE

    About two weeks ago, my 12 year old daughter talked me into signing up for a world wide scavenger hunt, She was not old enough to participate but wanted to see what it was all about, so after some research, I joined. It is called G.I.S.H.W.H.E.S, which means "the Greatest International Scaveng... Read more

  • Starting Over Isn't Really Starting Over!

    8/3/2016 8:25:06 AM, by RILEE77

    I think that might just be the 1,000 time I titled a blog post 'Day 1'. That's okay though. This time I have lots of new experiences and lessons learned to guide me through a successful (and permanent) lifestyle change, including my past attempts! If you happen to be finding me through FB, I'm ... Read more
