  • Falling Forwards

    8/28/2016 1:23:13 PM, by RAWCOOKIE

    Well, seems like Fall is on the way, despite my efforts to convince myself otherwise! I've joined the 5% Fall Challenge, as more of a 'maintainer' than a loser, but I have a few pounds to lose and I fancied being part of the gang this Autumn/Fall. I love to update my Spark Page each mont... Read more

  • Blessing in Disguise

    8/28/2016 11:48:54 AM, by BMCC488

    First of all, I wanted to say that I think our delay in leaving due to the lost titles may actually be a blessing in disguise... I think we all need some time to catch our breath. Also, we are spending extra days in the hotel here INSTEAD of out there, because we will make it out there before our u-... Read more

    8/27/2016 10:29:02 PM, by ANEWME42012

    Coke and chocolate make me feel keyed up and edgy; I crave sweet food when I am thirsty; Binging gives only temporary relief from bad feelings.

    8/27/2016 11:51:52 AM, by GET2BEFIT

    I always get asked -- and I ask too -- "I eat right, exercise and maintain/gain weight. Why?

  • Still in the Same Hotel, Hitting a few Hiccups

    8/26/2016 8:14:23 PM, by BMCC488

    Well, Tuesday and Wednesday we spent about 12 hours at the house each day. Tuesday wasn't as strenuous physically and we ate out twice. However, Wednesday I ended up at the house on my own most of the day while my parents went to get a trailer. They had complications because apparently most of the u... Read more

This prompted me 223 to go into the dark, ... Read more

    On Tuesday a friend and I went hiking. We drove through the mountains and hiked up a mountain on the east side of the mountain crest. It's dryer over there and the forests are very different. I lived here in the 1980s and know the area. From the top, I could name the mountains I climbed when I wa... Read more

    8/23/2016 2:48:41 PM, by OASIS1223

    So far the scale is inching lower. It says I'm down 5.2 lbs from when I started tracking this time around. I've got 5 more Lbs to go before I'm out of the range of 'scale flux'.

    Pick Two Reasonable Diets This day is the one that I think has been my downfall because lately, I just cannot seem to get with a plan, any plan. I really want to focus on eating a whole food plant based diet and eliminate a lot of the junk food that I have been eating. Plan A ~ whol... Read more

    In Sunday school this morning the lesson was on Daniel 7. In church this morning the deaf minister preached about restoration of Christians: restore the faith, restore fellowship to unchurched, reaching out to lost souls who have never heard of the Gospel before.

    8/14/2016 10:28:32 AM, by WINACHST

    Adding a new advantage for getting a grip on what I put in my mouth I want to give healthy eating a higher priority than satisfying a momentary desire because of the addictive (and destructive) attributes of eating junk food. I totally binged on chips last night and woke up in the middle ... Read more

    I was out shopping with my mom for an outfit to wear to my brother's wedding. It was depressing because I felt gigantic. And, let's face it. I weigh more now than I ever have. And have been in this spot for a few years now. What is a positive is I have no pounds to lose from this pregnancy -... Read more

    Today I was out and about with a young lad I support, and we went along a footpath that had an old lamp-post. He said 'Narnia'. And I saw exactly what he meant. It also made me remember that I have The Chronicles of Narnia in my DVD collection. So this evening, after a long day at work, I am goi... Read more

    This morning I identified the most intimate moment of my week. The moment when while I am actually naked, I FEEL the most naked. And I don't just make sure I have no clothes - dry hair, no fit bit, alone. I breathe in and hold my breath in. I think happy thoughts. I remind myself - naked and afraid ... Read more

    I have been on this journey for at least five years, and for five years I have fallen off the wagon and sat in the middle of the road. My heart wasn't 100% in it. Will this time be different? I really hope so. This time, I want to do it this for me. Not for my boyfriend, not for my kids, not for... Read more

    I am trying to figure out why I keep giving in to eating junk food. I think that somewhere deep inside my brain is the thought that if I do not eat it then someone else might. Heaven forbid if I should share! This realization came to me when my hubby pulled out a chocolate covered coconut bite ... Read more
