If I had a dollar for every time I've said "This is it! This is the time! I am committed to this weight loss!" over the last nine years, I would be a very wealthy woman. But saying those words doesn't put us any closer to truly living that fit i... Read more
Struggling with Temptation (and Reasoning it Away)
Tuesday, June 01, 2010      7 comments

I didn't think my lunch was bad. But when I logged it, I discovered that it had more calories than I expected, so now I am closer to my daily calories than I would like. It's not fun. Meanwhile, I have snacks on the brain. There are some lo... Read more

I was the kid who couldn't run. That meant no kickball, no tag, no gym class. After developing asthma as a very young child, and having it finally diagnosed at age 10, I resigned myself to just not being able to participate in activities that im... Read more
Turning Around

This week was a hard one. I've heard that sentiment echoed by many people who are also on this weight loss journey. I don't know why it is that we all felt that way, but we did. For me, it started with a comment from my husband about me being to... Read more
I Didn't Want To, But I Did
Tuesday, December 15, 2009      3 comments

I didn't want to work out today. No, not one bit. But I knew how I'd feel if I didn't, so I did it anyway. I didn't want to push myself when I worked out. Nope, it's later in the day and I just didn't want to. But I knew how I would feel if... Read more

I am so excited that I have lost weight during the first two weeks of the Biggest Loser challenge. And I am so excited that it's been two significant losses. I am excited that these losses haven't been by accident or coincidence. I have been wor... Read more
Half Way to a Habit
Sunday, December 06, 2009      5 comments

They say that it takes 14 days of doing something to make it a habit. If that's truly the case, then I am half way there. Actually a little more than half way. I decided recently that daily exercise is something that I absolutely have to fit int... Read more
It Doesn't Work If I Don't Work
Sunday, November 29, 2009      1 comments

I think I have been playing the stick my head in the sand game for the past month. I haven't been tracking what I eat, and haven't been regularly exercising ... though I could make the time if I wanted to. And at the same time, I have been excla... Read more
A Different Approach for a Different Loss
Wednesday, November 11, 2009      0 comments

When I lost all my baby weight after having my son, many things were the same as now: I worked from home. I took care of my child (now children). I fed our family on a budget. So, when I started working toward weightloss this time, I tried using... Read more
My Magical Week
Thursday, October 01, 2009      1 comments

This week has been magical for me. Absolutely magical. And losing 1.3 pounds is the icing on that magical cake. But what made this week really special was when I went to a work luncheon earlier this week in New York. For quite awhile, I ha... Read more
Down 0.5
Thursday, September 10, 2009      3 comments

I knew it would be a modest loss this week. And really, that was okay with me. To see the scale going in the right direction -- even when I am having difficulty balancing things -- is a motivator. But next week? Modest just won't do.... Read more
Support isn't Optional
Tuesday, September 08, 2009      5 comments

I think it's easy for people to share the things they are doing right. That leads to back pats and congrats and cheers all around. But it's much harder to admit that things aren't going perfectly. It's a challenge to really admit that maybe you ... Read more
Watching the Scale Drop
Tuesday, February 10, 2009      2 comments

After I had my son, weightloss seemed easy. The pounds melted away. I was motivated and I made the time to ensure that I was getting enough exercise. I had the time to think and calorie count and really get the most out of the program. However, ... Read more
Two Years and a Baby Later ...
Sunday, January 04, 2009      0 comments

Hard to believe I have been away from the SparkPeople program for this long. SparkPeople was so incredibly helpful when I lost all that weight before. But with a new baby (Paige, born 11/07), a change in career and more, I lost track and motivat... Read more
