IMPORTANCE OF ENCOURAGEMENT
Wednesday, September 17, 2008      7 comments

There have been many times I have wanted to give up on myself... and then some SP member comes along and comments on my blog or on my page or sends me a little SparkMail. Most of the time they don't really realize how much it meant to me. Someti... Read more
.6
Saturday, September 13, 2008      6 comments

Had weigh-in this morning. It went like I thought it would. I gained. Only .6 of a pound. Not that bad. But I don't want to strive for okay or not bad or mediocre. I want to do well. Every week. Now, if I do all I can and exercise and eat well a... Read more
NEGLECTING MYSELF
Friday, September 12, 2008      6 comments

I am not the kind of person who believes in "loving myself"... at least not in the way that some people do. Some people believe that you should always put yourself before others because in the end everyone else may be gone but you are still stuc... Read more
LEARNING ABOUT MYSELF
Tuesday, September 09, 2008      7 comments

I really feel that as we grow and change and work toward bettering ourselves we learn more about who we are... or maybe who we are becoming. I used to be able to go to Denny's and just chow down on a sampler platter, a whole dessert, 2 glasses o... Read more

First of all, let me say thank you to each person who commented on my last few blogs. I am a very emotionally driven person and tend to have a lot of ups and downs. I appreciated all of your support since lately I seem to really be in a time of ... Read more
DOWNWARD SPIRAL
Monday, September 01, 2008      7 comments

It's gettin' kind of scary for me. When I went to my WW meeting on Saturday my leader told me to cut back on my points. There's a little questionnaire in the Week 1 book to help you figure out how many points you should have a day. It's bas... Read more
MY PERFECTIONISM
Saturday, August 30, 2008      6 comments

In my last blog I talked about how bad I ate yesterday. Truthfully, it was just too many carbs and I really could have done without the extra pizza. But by this morning I was mostly over it and I was excited to go weigh in. Last week I was .2 po... Read more
KINDA BAD DAY
Saturday, August 30, 2008      2 comments

Written after midnight on Friday, August 29th. Lately I feel like my eating and exercising are the least of my problems. I feel like I let myself down today. The only protein I had were a cup of cottage cheese and one piece of string cheese... Read more
LOOKING FORWARD...
Thursday, August 28, 2008      5 comments

I was just thinking about how I had always pictured that for our 10th wedding anniversary I would like to be back to what I weighed when we got married. I weighed 185. Now, considering what I weigh now, I don't think I should bank on losing over... Read more
THANKFUL
Thursday, August 28, 2008      5 comments

I am so thankful for SP. When I think of how each of us has our own trials and difficulties and yet here we sit - trying to lose weight for so many reasons, yet not being selfish with our time. It takes time, and sometimes even a sacrifice, to s... Read more
I'M NOT CRAZY AFTER ALL
Wednesday, August 27, 2008      9 comments

In my last blog I talked about how I wondered if I was just imagining the changes I've seen... but now I'm thinkin' they might be real. And it's not just my body. It's my way I see things too. So, that said, here's my list (some are already list... Read more
PLACEBO EFFECT???
Sunday, August 24, 2008      6 comments

I am sure most of you know what the placebo affect is, but for those of you who don't, here's a summary - as I understand it. As an example - in a drug trial some people are given the actual drug and others are given something like a sugar pill ... Read more
DISAPPOINTED...
Saturday, August 23, 2008      5 comments

I am really trying to stay positive, but it's hard. I had a goal to reach - not a very big goal. I just wanted to lose 1.6 pounds this week at my weigh in for Weight Watchers so I would hit the 10 pound mark. But I did not succeed. I lost 1.4 in... Read more
PRAYER
Wednesday, August 20, 2008      11 comments

Tonight we went to prayer meeting at church. We have a small church so we just pull chairs into a circle and start with a few worship songs and then start praying. It's Spirit-lead... people pray about what they feel lead to pray about and there... Read more
THE POWERFUL WORD - DOUBT
Monday, August 18, 2008      2 comments

This morning Pastor Jesse was preaching and in part of his sermon he gave the definition for the word doubt. He mentioned how, for such a small little one syllable word, it certainly packed a punch. Doubt is something I know I deal with in ... Read more
