Real Pleasure in Food
Wednesday, February 24, 2010      0 comments

I used to think that I had a great appreciation in food because I loved (and still love) to eat. I thought that because I had such a sensitive tongue and great cooking skills, that meant I got more pleasure out of food. But since starting this... Read more
Feeling a little better today
Wednesday, February 24, 2010      2 comments

Yesterday I said I was feeling unmotivated, and although I continued to feel that way through most of the day, it was so nice to see how many people replied to my post to encourage me! That was so wonderful. I really love SP because of the peo... Read more
Rough day
Tuesday, February 23, 2010      5 comments

I'm having one of those days where I just don't want to get up and do anything. Anything at all! I'm so unmotivated, and I don't know if that's the cause or the effect of being low in energy. I wanted so badly to eat the cupcakes that are in ... Read more
Trying Xylitol and a Digital Scale
Sunday, February 21, 2010      5 comments

When I dieted in the past, I really wasn't serious about it in the least. I kind of tried cutting out calories, but it was more of an eyeballing sort of thing, rather than actually keeping track of my intake and then really cutting out calories... Read more
So sore!
Saturday, February 20, 2010      3 comments

Ok, here's a look at how much of a wimp I am. Yesterday, I did most of Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred workout video. It's a real challenge for me, and every time I do it, I end up so sore the next day. And indeed, today I am very sore. ... Read more
Buying big and repackaging
Friday, February 19, 2010      2 comments

So the problem I have with the way a lot of people diet is that their method calls for buying pricey prepackaged dinners, lunches and snacks. It drives me up a wall to see those 100 calorie packs of crackers or candies. I'm a frugal girl by na... Read more
One Crazy Day
Thursday, February 18, 2010      2 comments

DH popped his neck last night, and he must have done something to some muscles in there, because shortly after, it started to ache really badly. Then around midnight he got sick and threw up. I was worried about him, but I didn't realize at th... Read more
Weight loss and a love of beauty
Wednesday, February 17, 2010      0 comments

I'm an artist and my goal as an artist is to bring beauty to the world. I have a keen eye for the human figure. Or at least I like to think I do. So it's always so hard for me to look at myself in the mirror. I'm 210 pounds. Granted, ... Read more
Morning ramblings
Wednesday, February 17, 2010      1 comments

My husband told me that he thinks it would be best for me to eat normal for a week while food journaling so that I can see how much I eat and what I need to maintain my weight. I think he's right. I mean, I can just go by what Spark thinks I e... Read more

I'm the kind of person who likes to weigh herself daily. Even if I don't lose anything, or if I gain a little, I like to watch how I'm doing to make sure I'm on the right track. I always weigh myself in the morning, after I potty and before I... Read more
Totally getting hooked
Monday, February 15, 2010      4 comments

I spend the afternoon looking over Spark and posting on the message boards. I added a couple of buddies and I hope we'll be able to motivate each other. But I'm really liking this website. I feel comfortable opening up about my weight loss go... Read more
Need to start somewhere!
Monday, February 15, 2010      0 comments

So I want to start this blog so that I have a place to put down my thoughts on food and weight and dieting. I don't know if I'll use it much, but let's at least try, shall we?... Read more
