Quick and Easy Meals
Saturday, August 10, 2013      2 comments

I've been gone from SparkPeople awhile, but I started again, using SparkCoach, and am working on getting back on track and making it my life again. So, my SparkCoach "assignment" for the day is to blog a list of quick and easy meal ideas. In my ... Read more
New Year, New Resolution
Tuesday, January 22, 2013      2 comments

I lost over 30 pounds with SparkPeople and WeightWatchers, but then, a year or more ago, I stopped losing, and could only maintain my weight with the same effort that I'd been putting in to lose. I blamed it on work, blamed it on stress. I maint... Read more
Meal plan for the week
Sunday, February 20, 2011      4 comments

As part of a challenge for my Hogwarts team, I'm posting my meal plan for this week. The challenge also focuses on whole foods, so there are a lot of them in there--but I try not to eat a lot of processed food, anyway. I haven't checked points o... Read more

I just read this blog http://www.dailyspark.co
commitment_to_weight_loss and am very happy to say that this description fits where I am right now, and where I have been for most of these 2+ years ... Read more
New vision collage
Thursday, September 09, 2010      3 comments

On the recommendation of my doctor, I've joined a group for the purpose of digging into the problem of emotional eating and getting at the underlying emotions that trigger overeating. This week was the first time the group met and one of the exe... Read more

I just had my worst migraine ever in my life. My history of migraines isn't all that long, but it is relatively unusual. Most people I know who talk about having migraines have an intense headache, nausea, and generally take meds and sleep in or... Read more
Good Morning
Tuesday, May 04, 2010      2 comments

I worked out this morning. Although I've been "working it" for a couple of years now (with varying success), I have NEVER done a morning workout at home. My body wakes up slowly, a bit like the Tin Man, needing a bit of oil on every joint ... Read more
One day at a time
Saturday, April 17, 2010      6 comments

It seems like I come back here almost every month to say that I'm starting again, starting over, re-committing myself. And each time I do it halfway. A few days here, a few days there. When the days are fewer, I gain a pound or two. When the day... Read more
March goals
Sunday, March 07, 2010      3 comments

One thing I've learned in this journey is that I need to make behavioral, not scale goals. No matter what I do, I cannot always control the scale--I had a nearly year-long plateau and my focus on the scale made me give up and gain back about hal... Read more
One week on BistroMD down
Friday, February 05, 2010      4 comments

I had a great week on BistroMD. I love how the food tastes, the portion sizes, and the results I'm getting. I was down over two pounds this week, and that's weighing in a day earlier than usual. If anyone has paid any attention to my ticker, the... Read more
BistroMD: trying a new diet delivery service
Saturday, January 30, 2010      8 comments

In December, I tried eDiets and liked it (see my previous blog), but I had always planned to switch to BistroMD once I got a freezer big enough to put the meals in. Yesterday was my first delivery, and it looks really good. Unlike eDiets, with B... Read more
The "F word" collage
Friday, January 01, 2010      4 comments

When I worked my way through the beginning stuff in SparkPeople almost a year and a half ago now, I didn't really do a vision collage. I picked a few little images that I could sketch, look at, remind myself with. These images worked for me duri... Read more
Preparing for the new year
Tuesday, December 29, 2009      1 comments

I've been more than a bit lazy for a couple of months now, but the program is coming together for a new burst of energy and commitment. Here's what I have in place: 1) A brand new SparkPeople calendar, complete with stickers and four handy ... Read more
A nap a day keeps the pounds away?
Monday, December 21, 2009      3 comments

I've been blaming this whole plateau thing on metabolism, and hoping that my new osteopath would find that I was woefully low in some nutrient that would explain the lack of weight loss since February. While she did find some issues--low vitamin... Read more
End of week 1 on delivery
Friday, December 18, 2009      4 comments

Overall, I'd say this experiment with eDiets Delivery has been pretty good. I had to get used to the portion sizes, because they seem very small, even for someone who has been eating close to this calorie range. It does make me wonder if I've be... Read more
