I started Spark People on 6/1/2006, which happened to be a Thursday. Because of that, I have weighed and measured myself everything Thursday since that date. However, at the beginning of August, I happened to join two challenges which requ... Read more
Wacky Scale
Friday, August 18, 2006      0 comments

This morning when I did my usual weigh in, my usually trusty scale kind of wigged out. I usually weigh myself twice to make sure the number is accurate. The first time I got 237.8, same as yesterday. Next I got 236.0, quite a bit ... Read more
The First Quarter....

Last week I reached a milestone. I have officially lost 1/4th of the weight that I need to lose. I can't decide if the ease of which it was done is exciting or scary. I know that it will most likely be the easiest portion of the race... Read more

I wrote this to my buddies and decided I should post it in my journal (I am sure I will need to reread it myself many times!) My perfectionist tendencies are the way that I cope with my huge inadequacy complex! Like if I do things absolutel... Read more

This morning was weigh in day. It turned into a good week. I was down 4 pounds, and several inches. I know that I should try to slow down the weightloss, but I can't imagine trying to fit anymore food into my day. As it is with a 1400 mi... Read more

I had a really good exercise day today. It sure didn't start out that way. I woke up late this morning, and I only had time for a quick 15 minute walk. Knowing my time was limited I really pushed myself. Tonight, I was ready to dedicate ... Read more

Well....here I am, starting over again. What a familiar place this is! What are my current motivations? I am worried about certain health issues. My occasional gallbladder pains, chest pains, and numbness on the right side of my body. ... Read more
