  • First day at new gym

    3/23/2017 8:52:22 AM, by VALKYRIA-

    Went well!! I took the advice of other Sparkers and I didn't push myself too hard. I did a brief warm up on the elliptical (phew that thing is hard), and then I used 3 weight machines -- leg press, chest press, and lat pull down for two sets of 10-12... and then I did the treadmill with short ...

  • Weekly Weigh-In

    3/22/2017 12:08:46 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    Omgosh! I weighed in much lower than I thought I would and well below the threshold for my scale to measure me. 390.4 I was expecting 405 or higher :) So, I'm down about 6 lb from when I was in the hospital earlier this year, and down about 15 lb from my highest weight last year.I guess t...

  • Feeling Better

    3/21/2017 5:59:10 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    Thanks for the support on my last blog. It means a lot to me that so many wonderful Sparkfriends are supporting me. I had my appointment with the sleep doc today and it went well; I'm going to have a sleep study on Apr 1st. She said I should be taking the antipsychotic med Vaylar instead of my... Read more

  • First day back

    3/20/2017 9:58:25 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    It feels really weird to be back in my apartment, but here I am! I have these memories of feeling bad in this apartment, so it's very strange to be feeling good in it right now, but I guess I will get used to it. I almost feel afraid that something bad is going to happen, but I know that's not... Read more

  • Day 1 - For real.

    3/19/2017 4:54:22 PM, by TACOMALO

    Just getting back from a 4 mile walk on a glorious unofficial Spring day in Arkansas. Really needed the sun to get me back to the right state of mind. I kicked off last week and attacked the lifestyle with gusto. My exercise program was tight...but really interesting thing happened. I almost imm... Read more

    3/19/2017 11:29:01 AM, by VALKYRIA-

    Last night we saw Beauty and the Beast. It was good! I also managed to only have a handful of my brother's popcorn, and I had a very sensible portion for dinner and didn't binge or snack afterwards. This is my last day visiting my family. Tomorrow I'll be packing up my cats and heading back to ... Read more

  • Fast Food Plan!

    3/17/2017 8:45:53 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    Thanks to the helpful suggestions on my previous blog, I've decided not to demonize fast food, but to simply make a list of *allowed* meals that I can get from fast food places near me and not have it be a cheat meal. Now obviously most of these foods are not my *First Choice*, and they have a ... Read more

    OK, I found out I have a seat reserved in the boot camp that starts May 15th (if you'll remember from my previous blogs, I had to take a leave of absence from this boot camp because of my mental health, but they are letting me complete a later one and I will not lose the money I've already invested)...

  • I worked out today

    3/16/2017 11:17:20 AM, by VALKYRIA-

    This might not seem like much of an achievement but for me, at this time in my life, it is. I went to the mall and walked for 30 minutes because it was too cold to walk outside. It feels really good. I took the time to do intentional exercise and to focus on my health, and I'm going to keep this pat... Read more

  • Joining a Gym with my friend!

    3/15/2017 12:03:10 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    It's amazing to me that this has transpired the way it has... because just yesterday I was thinking about how much I missed my (expensive) old fitness center and I was considering trying to find a cheaper place to work out... well, today my friend Katie told me that she joined Planet Fitness and was...

  • Cutting Refined Sugar

    3/13/2017 4:58:52 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    The first thing I'm going to do to try to get my numbers down is cutting refined sugar from my diet. I don't drink soda, but I have been eating sugary breakfast cereals and I have been known to snack on sugar-laden granola bars and sometimes sugary coffee drinks from Starbucks or juices. I've d...

  • Day 1 - Kick Off.

    3/12/2017 11:45:14 PM, by TACOMALO

    Kicking off again, with firmness and discipline. Just came back from Carnaval in Brazil...it's bizarre to be the fattest person on a beach of hundreds of people. Many consider the week of Carnaval to be the true beginning of the year, so resolutions start now. Weight: 277.8 Pounds W... Read more

  • Blood sugar too high

    3/12/2017 1:16:02 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    I am upset to see that my blood work came back and my blood sugar and HA1C are both way too high... in the diabetic range. I'll need to make an appointment with an endocrinologist to get onto some medication. I want to reverse this. I don't want my body to suffer and deteriorate. I ... Read more

  • Trying A New Schedule This Week

    3/12/2017 8:27:46 AM, by ANNEMARGAR

    For the next month, they are doing maintenance work on the Metro. I learned last week that this work added an additional 30 minutes to my already 2 hour commute (each way). So....I decided that I should shake it up and try something new. Instead of going to the gym in the morning, I will go straig... Read more

  • Day 2

    3/11/2017 5:48:23 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    I cooked dinner for my family today (as well as I could in my mom's crowded kitchen)! I made lemon asparagus chicken with mushrooms... we had it with baked potatoes (I ate half of it and saved the other half for tomorrow). I started my entire dose of medication today, so hopefully it continues... Read more

  • What A Day...

    3/11/2017 8:04:01 AM, by ANNEMARGAR

    Yesterday was NOT the day I had "planned". It started at 5:30am with my daughter yelling at me because I wouldn't let her go to her friends house without taking care of her responsibilities first (this has been an on going issue). Then my partner started vomiting and spent the day in bed. I went ... Read more

  • Day 1 - Measurement Time

    3/10/2017 1:39:54 PM, by VALKYRIA-

    I'm trying hard not to be ashamed of these measurements, and I'm sure they will be decreasing soon :) This is just the way it is for me right now. I need to learn to accept and love myself at this size if I want to make a lasting change for the better. I will be remeasuring on the first of every mon... Read more
