    10/12/2015 4:17:11 PM, by HORRORHONEY

    Do I love myself? It's a question that plagued me for years and years. I would always find a reason to bring myself down no matter the situation. If there was an excuse to be had, I had it ready to be used. It's not that I wanted to drown in self-pity every day. Honestly, I was like most ... Read more

    I have less pain. I declared it time to put exercise back into my appointment schedule. I find I can take care of Bob and the cat. Since I go downstairs (one floor) and get a walk along hallways as as my warm up, I can get to class in under 5 minutes. I take Qi Gong and zumba on Saturday. I t... Read more

I seem to have gotten myself into a new frame of mind & it feels really good. I just went out food shopping tonight & did not get one bit of junk food. I am taking a br... Read more

  • Week 5, Day 3: Last week is the past, this week is better!

    10/7/2015 4:38:10 PM, by MARIESEIZE

    So last week ended up being horrible as far as sticking to my goals goes. The end result was that I was up 0.8. So over the last two weeks I gained 1.1 lbs. I guess that's not horrible, but still I was disappointed in myself. This week is going much better though. Today will be the third day in a s... Read more

    I made the rounds after work to Kroger for SPark batteries for DD and my trackers. Got some more freebies and then to the library to pickup a hold item for DD, then to Dad's house to mow his lawn, etc. Three hours gone for the day, so just finished paying some of mom's bills, balancing two of...

I then ran to the mirror and looked at it from several angles and laughed some more because I found more tendons AND MY COLLARBONES! Then I realized I could feel my shoulder bones and got pos...

    It has been ten days since I first logged in to Spark People. Time for a check-in. I have logged my food every day, even the day I was sunk in depression and had a hollow leg. Each day I hit one or two goals, but seem to be significantly over on some (fat, cholesterol, fiber) and under o... Read more

  • Week 1, again

    10/7/2015 10:53:05 AM, by REMRA4209

    So, my first week back is going ok. I'm down about 8 lbs. I'm learning quite a bit about my eating habits and finding new ways of incorporating more water and healthier foods. I also found out that I can clear 3,000 calories a day, no problem. Yikes. So, my goal for this next week will simply b... Read more

    When I walk in the country, one of the things I notice is drivers. Most of them slow down, even if it is just a little. Most pull over, away from me—sometimes all the way into the other lane. Drivers of big farm vehicles 343 are especially courteous (maybe they realize how much air and dust th... Read more
