I've settled on a new goal weight range. I had been maintaining around 152-153. My new range is 157 give or take a pound or two. For months people have been telling me that I am too thin. I even had a guy walk up to me in a bar & tell m... Read more

So, I've been voted a "Sparkpeople Motivator" - that totally rocks!! I do enjoy Sparks and get so much from it. I'm glad people think I give something back, too. I don't know how many votes it takes to get the official deal on your page, but I... Read more

Went to a party for Halloween. I wore a fun costume as a police woman. I had a blast... the party was so fun. I did good on food, bad, really bad on booze... at least I was smart enough to mix all my own drinks and not let the pirate behind t... Read more

Wow!! Apparently this is a real ad. It's amazing what people will do; and, what they did in the past. And to think, us Sparkers rely on exercise and good food choices!! Just think, when people ask, "how did you do it?" you can respond ... Read more

White Knuckeling "The Range"
Tuesday, July 31, 2007      2 comments

I am at maintenance, and I use a "maintenance range" rather than a single weight to maintain. The Range is 150-154. If I get to 154 or (gasp) over that weight, I know it is time to get serious before I have a lot of real work to do. I weigh m... Read more
