In the park

It's a rainy day. The leaves hang heavy on the branches. It's a good day to curl up with a book or read old journal entries. I came across this entry written pre-Spark People days (edited, of course). Being on the road everyday for work, I kne... Read more
Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Haircut appointment. Big decisions: let it grow out to one length or layer cut? Change from golden blonde to chesnut? Living dangerously. Icky moment: Seeing my reflection in the big mirror at the shop, long silky straight wet hair making fa... Read more
Breaking the pattern
Tuesday, July 15, 2008      6 comments

From yesterday's blog: "My pattern is 4-6 days bouncing around at nearly the same weight, then experiencing a nice little drop. The next day the scale will be back up half way to the old weight. I'll sit there for 4-6 more days, then have anoth... Read more
Our amazing bodies

Ah, the lovely Katharine Hepburn. Isn't this picture inspiring? I have no idea what the end will be as I pursue this journey. My imagination doesn't stretch that far, even as I look at pictures of tall, slender women. Visualization isn't w... Read more
Are we there yet? Celebrating 2 months

I saw this darling little black cover up today in a flyer from Bath and Body. One more reason to get small enough to wear darling little anythings. I like clothes and shoes. When I started working it was gorgeous underthings and beautiful s... Read more

Looking for a challenge without a killer exercise component that I am unable to do. Any recommendations? I haven't had time to sift through the 1001 challenges here. Blog it and they will come. I hope.... Read more
Happy Summer to me

Summertime and cool refreshing salads, yummm. For lunch, we had a large salad of lettuce and spinach, tomatoes, onions, sprinkled with cheese. Delicious. Robust blend of flavors. I don't think this will help increase my calories to my SP goal... Read more

Write down your goals, make plans to achieve them, and work on your plans every single day. – Brian Tracy This is my assessment of where I am after nearly 2 months. I am down 20 pounds as of today’s weigh-in. With perseverance, that ... Read more

Sunday was a good day. We had a wonderful service at church. The teens are back from a mission trip to the Bronx, lots of high energy and excitement. We are finding creative ways to prepare meals without the stove. Tonight I mixed fresh b... Read more
A chipmunk, an oven fire, and other things
Saturday, June 28, 2008      4 comments

So many blogs in my head this week that never made it into the computer. How can one be away from work and still be this busy? The week started with a chipmunk in the garage. They are such fast, shy creatures that I wondered if I really saw... Read more
A liberated Yo-Yo
Saturday, June 21, 2008      4 comments

I used to be a yo-yo. I can lose weight. I couldn't stick with it and keep it off. Someone posted a thread on 100 Pounds in One Year group asking how many pounds we have lost. I thought about that quite a while. I have lost hundreds and h... Read more
Really getting into this
Wednesday, June 18, 2008      1 comments

I am really getting into this. The "No Second Helpings" goal works...and no cheating by taking bigger first helpings. It's a satisfying feeling to put the silverware on the plate, signaling that I am done. It's ok if others are still eatin... Read more
The dynamics of momentum
Friday, June 13, 2008      3 comments

Motivation ebbs and flows. Some days living healthy is a walk in the park. Some days we battle the mindless munchies. While this is not an "all or nothing" journey, it can be difficult to get re-motivated after we detour. It is demoralizing t... Read more
Moving down the scale *happy dance*
Tuesday, June 10, 2008      3 comments

Woohoo, I am making progress! I think work made me fat, haha. It has been a traumatic week. Not once have I indulged in emotional eating or bingeing (not that it hasn't crossed my mind). I've been all over the boards emotionally but sticking to ... Read more
Another chapter of doneness
Monday, June 09, 2008      1 comments

It is ironic that I had changed my screen saver at work to "Done. Done. DONE! I am so done!" on the day my position was eliminated. I can see them scratching their heads when they read it. It was a reminder to me that I was done being the fat ... Read more
