I'm having a tough day today. I woke up in really bad pain, which delayed my getting out of bed for an extra two hours...and made my planned AM walk impossible. After my shower, I did manage to do my strength training that was scheduled, altho... Read more
A Cherry of a Cheat

Well, it's been almost a week of being faithful to Spark. I've met or come close to meeting my calorie goals (which I've lowered a bit to make up for a more limited activity level) each day...except probably for yesterday... Specifically; last... Read more

This morning I followed the advice given by one of the commenters on my last blog and googled "chair yoga." Not only did I find a VHS (so I settled!) video on Chair Yoga (on sale for $5.00) which I ordered, but I also found many YouTube videos ... Read more

While my weight has not gone up in the past week...it hasn't gone down either....In fact, maybe in the past TWO weeks. I've been very casual about the way I've been eating and tracking has been non-existent. Frankly, all I've been concerned a... Read more

After weeks of nausea from my IV antibiotic, I am finally starting to be able to eat again...and am frightened by that fact...that I will suddenly have the urge to eat "the house"...and will regain all the weight that I've lost. I know that my ... Read more

I don't know where to start, or where to end...having made the declaration on my Spark Page that "I am more than a body...more than an illness"... Seems like this body just travels from one illness to another. I had my first hip replacemen... Read more

hi, I am missing all of my friends here a lot...and although I don't really feel much at home on this site due to the fact that my weight loss is happening due to health and not due to effort (and that's really how I gained it in the first pla... Read more

Last week was a hard week. And this coming week promises to be even harder. Tough things to face are impending, heavy emotional hitters about which I've already spent three sleepless nights and invested many tears into. I noticed that, as... Read more

Last week my doctor took me off of one of my medicines and replaced it with another--something I had begged them to do many times because that medicine is well known to cause people to gain large amounts of weight...and I'd put on about fifty po... Read more

Okay. So I exerted my independance from Spark People. I did my own thing for a week or two....and yesterday I had a doctor's appointment. They weighed me and the scale came up at 205...almost back where I'd started when I began Spark. Grante... Read more

I confess for the past two or three days, I've sort of lost my enthusiasm for SP...Tracking seems like a real pain in the rear...etc etc. Maybe we've all been there; thought that. I would be curious to know how people have dealt with that issu... Read more

After my time of wandering from SP, I have returned and for the past three or four days have met my calorie guidelines (yesterday, I even came UNDER!). I need to try to stick on the low end of the calorie range because I don't get very much car... Read more
