    10/8/2015 11:43:16 PM, by CALAMITIE

    Sleep was not my friend last night. For some reason my feet got cold and it took several different tries to get them warm enough for me to be comfortable. I finally resorted to an old rice bag heated in the microwave to get my toes warm. I've even asked the doctor why this happens and she can't f... Read more

  • Hypothyroid epiphany

    10/7/2015 9:08:13 AM, by ANWYNS

    So...I'm back again after a long hiatus. In the meantime, from 2009 and now, I found out I had hypothyroidism. Not the reason for ALL my weight issues but now it's a reason weight coming off is a significant struggle and why I gained so much from 2011-present. I lost 52lbs in early 2009 and slowly...

  • Giving a Shoutout to my 14 Year Old Self

    10/7/2015 8:58:27 AM, by SOON2BDIRTY30

    I can remember a time in my life when I did a pretty awesome job not caring about what others thought of me. I went through a kind of "rebel" faze during my 8th grade and Freshman years in school. Not that I was doing anything bad, I just wanted to dress differently than the other girls I went to sc...

  • My Exercise Routine

    10/7/2015 8:30:08 AM, by HUNGRYWOMAN2

    As part of a challenge I have been given the task of reflecting on my exercise routine. Should be pretty simple, but I find myself staring into space wondering what my routine really is. I have come to the conclusion that I don't have one. Sure, I exercise, but there is nothing I could claim as ... Read more

  • Why am I not motivated

    10/7/2015 8:25:22 AM, by NANCYJH64

    I was doing so well. Had lost more than 100 lbs and have gained back 25 of that over the last year. Spark people helped me then and I thought I could do it on my own. Time to be realistic and get back on track. I do not understand my lack of motivation though. I will have to ponder that........ Read more

    I've been trying to meet my goal of drinking 64oz of water. I finally reached that goal yesterday. I usually drink 32oz a day but yesterday I aimed to drink 32oz by noon (I'm up by 4:30am) and drink the other 32 before bed. I am proud of myself. Trying to keep the momentum going.... Read more

    10/7/2015 2:40:31 AM, by CHEESEQUAKE

    Today is day number one. So far, it is going well, yet I can admit it is quite challenging although I've done it before. Unfortunately though, having done the diet before, I'm very aware that it only gets harder after the first day for only a couple of days; mood swings, intensified cravings, the lo... Read more

    Hello Everyone, Thank you for your responses on my last blog. Lola went to her new home today. We miss her, but I think she will be happier in a home where she can get a lot of attention. She was really liking it here and beginning to feel at home, but it wouldn't be right for her to grow up se... Read more

  • Beck Chapter 3 - How Thin People Think

    10/6/2015 11:45:17 PM, by DMPRIDER

    Interesting chapter. It reminded me very much of what an old college friend used to say. That the difference between thin people and fat people - that thin people eat to live and fat people live to eat. Oh boy, it seems we were not that far off the mark. It will be good to learn tools to deal wi... Read more

    Although it was overcast, it's starting to warm up a bit. Driving with the windows open is the best! I wore my Light Up the Night 5K T-shirt to the gym this evening. It's neon yellow and very bright. It's fun to wear. I'm looking forward to taking a kickboxing/TRX class. I have no idea... Read more

    I took mom out today. She mostly sat in the car whenever we stopped. You know what I want you just pick it out. And then she hands me her wallet. So we went to her favorite bakery and she got her fresh bread and some wonderful coffee cake (my dad loves it) . I was not a very good person ... Read more

    On May 15th, 2015, I quit my job as bookkeeper for a landscape company. My knees could no longer navigate the stairs to my office in the basement of an old farm house. As bad as the stairs were, the boss was worse. I preferred the company of the resident mice over any time spent with the boss. Th... Read more

    I've been watching/tracking my nutrition carefully. today was a "cheat" day - that ended up being anticipated....we had a catered free lunch at work that I knew about (so didn't bring my usual lunch) and then I went out and got pastries for my brother's birthday. I had a really short work-out.... Read more
