  • Dry rot of shoes??? Good, expensive shoes at that.

    2/7/2016 1:23:33 PM, by CTUPTON

    I never heard of this but I guess I am now old enough to have it happen! A big, heavy pair of Drew shoes are awful. The 1/2 inch thick rubber sole is cracking across the toes area. And the leather is peeling on the top of the toe area. I am retired from teaching -about 4 years. So I know ... Read more

    I bought a pair of ankle length pants back in July. They were tight, but I could squeeze into them. I had hopes of being able to wear them shortly.

  • Starting a 90 day challenge at my gym!

    2/6/2016 4:03:43 PM, by ZUMBANERD

    Today was my weigh in day for this new 90 day challenge. I've decided to go with my body composition rather than pure weight loss. I did that because for me, I can lose body fat and gain muscle mass. And I've been doing that since Dec. I was at 46% body fat originally and now I'm at 42% body fat. Th... Read more

  • A sparkfriend asked me what HALT means. I am so happy to be asked!

    1/10/2016 8:15:24 AM, by CTUPTON

    This was my answer: Oh , thanks for asking. Really, BEFORE eating something , I am supposed to ask myself why am I wanting to eat. Am I genuinely hungry? Usually I am not! There are cumber systems to ask myself just how hungry am I. I never even get to that analysis! I usually eat f... Read more

  • Must Put On My Oxygen Mask First...

    1/10/2016 12:35:59 AM, by RABBITART

    I am trying to get back on track with my eating and exercise but I want to do it slowly and no pressure on myself. It has been a very stressful 2015, I've been told numerous times I need to take of myself first. A friend once told me, if I was on a plane and the oxygen mask came down I would be so b... Read more

Well my weight hit an all time low when my daughter was one. but now she is almost four and I am 20 lbs over where I want to be. The great news is my husband is now with me on this he... Read more

  • I dislike being ill

    1/9/2016 8:47:46 PM, by NYXWOLFWALKER

    Well it's caught back up with me. Was hoping that I was dun with being ill until at least October (when I tend to get ill) but no I can't be that lucky. Only upside is that it was a productive week until today when it comes to decluttering the basement, got 25% dun during the week so a few gar... Read more

  • It is "The Evening," my witching hour.

    1/9/2016 6:28:40 PM, by CTUPTON

    Can I make it to sleepy time without over eating???? The Big Question! Maybe I should not be on SP in the morning but be here in the evenings--with my tea or water bottle by my side! chris... Read more

  • Reflect and move on.

    1/9/2016 6:24:36 PM, by MBETTIS3

    Ok, so I came back... like many others and like I have done so many times before.... In 2007 I was 207, in 2009 I was 225, in 2013 I was 250 and here I am in 2016 at 271. I'd say that is a FAIL... But I can't quit. I want to live, I speak life to this body, this vessel, these dry bones. Getting ol... Read more

  • Getting discouraged.....

    1/9/2016 9:43:10 AM, by CTUPTON

    Believe it or not, these daily behavioral goals are NOT taking! 39 I know I am not really hungry! H?A?L?T? Later in the day, tired, YES! And not exactly lonely but bored, dissatisfied, discontented...... For a few days now I have been having a good-sized bowl of blanched, cold purple c... Read more

    The Doctor is "indisposed" so to speak. Carla has to solve the world's problems for awhile. I am not sure if I like the ending . Carla was extremely proud to handle her end of it but... well you need to watch it. no spoilers. chris... Read more

  • My journey

    1/9/2016 1:22:46 AM, by TRINITYEMMALISE

    I have started out many times here on Sparks in the past but was never consistent with anything. My weight would go up and down and the more I gained the more depressed I became. I suffer from Bi-Polar 2 which means I am more depressive than manic, so anything that adds to depression does not help... Read more
