A Great Lunch Idea on a Not so Great Day
Friday, October 22, 2010      4 comments

It's a low energy day after a night of almost no sleep. I wanted a quick and easy lunch, otherwise, I knew I'd end up skipping it altogether as I have several days this week. It's been a low appetite week. Yesterday was a little better...came... Read more
Myself; ad nauseum
Wednesday, October 20, 2010      3 comments

I began an online journal today. I read about the possibility in one of a Sparker's blogs and also recalled my daughter saying that she had one....I'm tired of computers breaking or crashing and losing bits of my life as my journals get lost on... Read more
What Could be Better?

...A chilly autumn day with bright sunshine and big puffy clouds. A Dunkin Donuts iced pumpkin coffee, bought by a friend. Shopping with said friend and spending way too much money because you have way too many needs. Spending the whole da... Read more

Monday, October 11, 2010      5 comments

Although I joined Spark People this past January, which was 10 months ago, and although, so far, I've lost fifty pounds, (although I'd gained a few back which I'm now re-losing)...I decided that I needed a fresh start and to take the program a ... Read more
Autumn in Milford
Sunday, October 10, 2010      9 comments

Actually Milford is a charming town...full of picture-worthy scenery...however, because I no longer drive, and don't really want to ask someone to drive me around and let me take pictures (!), I have to show you MY corner of Milford. This is my... Read more

Things were going great, I was exercising a lot, enjoying it (most importantly) and not really losing weight, but not gaining either. Then I started to cough. Just a little... Read more
Determination and a Brand New Start.
Tuesday, October 05, 2010      2 comments

Now that I've gotten my new copy of The Spark, having lost the first one, I've decided to re-do my 28 day program. I have to confess that the first time I did it, I was MOSTLY interested in weight loss. And that bit of interest helped me to lo... Read more
Something Better than Motivation
Saturday, October 02, 2010      8 comments

We hear a lot of talk about motivation...and I was fooled by that scoundrel just like everyone else...thinking that it was the key to losing weight, but finding myself continually frustrated as it slipped through my fingers and vanished. At tho... Read more

When it rains; it pours. (an appropriate adage for a day when the heavens are floodiing the earth here, after a summer of drought!) I know this is my second blog entry in one day, but hey, I got stuff to say! I was just doing some self a... Read more

Spreading the Spark Inadvertently
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      3 comments

The last time I went to my hip surgeon's office, I brought my copy of "The Spark" with me, to continue reading it while I waited. I carried it into the examining room, because I often have to wait in there too... When I got home, I realize... Read more
Fear, Uncertainty and Excuses
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      0 comments

Well, after all my talk of losing this last ten pounds to reach my initial goal weight in three weeks, I have to confess that I've been struggling. Some days, I didn't even bother to track because I'm sure I must've eaten 5,000 calories and I co... Read more
More than Half Way...50 Pounds later and lighter in pics
Saturday, September 18, 2010      9 comments

well. I've lost 50 pounds thus far...and can't really celebrate it in pictures. Why? Because when I was at my heaviest, I avoided the camera. I don't have a single picture of what 210+ looked like on me. I don't even have tape measurements t... Read more
