I've never been one to feel any effects other than hunger when skipping a meal. Since I've been on Sparkpeople I've had a lot more structure to my meals, and i've been working really hard to get a healthy breakfast in every morning. Today I ha... Read more

Wednesday, May 20, 2009      0 comments

So our bootcamp challenge for today is to create a blog to reflect on anything about bootcamp. I joined this so that I would increase my exercise. I have an office job where I am forced, yes forced, to sit for 7.5 hours every day. For bre... Read more

So again, not much to report. I guess it is a win to lose 2 pounds since last week. But the measurements haven't budged. How can you lose 12 pounds and not at least 1 pant size? None of my cloths fit better, I don't feel any better either. ... Read more

travel and diet, where do you find a balance?
Thursday, April 30, 2009      0 comments

Over the last two weeks I've been on the go. I left on Thursday for St. Louis, by car. I tried to stay on track, I ate a good breakfast and tried to eat a good lunch. I expected things to be very active once we got there. It rained off and o... Read more

So, Sunday's are my weigh in and measure days...I lost 1.5 pounds for a total of 9.5 since I restarted Spark at the end of January. I didn't take any measurements until toward the end of Feb, and to be honest that first month I wasn't very dedi... Read more

So, I'm still plugging along at this. I've been successful at weight loss in the past, but initially it takes my body a good amount of time to understand what's going on. Since I 'forced' myself onto a scale to see how bad it was 4 months ago,... Read more

So the weather is finally warmer! But it's supposed to get cold by next weekend. Now if we can just get rid of the pollen being outside will be perfect! I'm not allergic but I think the dog has a sensitivity to it, and you know dogs, they sni... Read more

It has rained all day since Friday! It makes things very depressing and of course it has to be cold too. I did my weigh in and measurements, I am slowly losing pounds, but no inches? I'm sure a little more regular exercise would help. ... Read more
