GOAL MET! GOAL SET!
Saturday, July 18, 2009      7 comments

I was thrilled today to step on the scale and see 154.5 flash up. Tried the scale in four different spots on the floor: yes, really true, no wavering. Last weigh-in 157 and now I'm down below the 155 goal weight. So now I'm rethinking: is... Read more
Sparking for Two Months
Saturday, July 11, 2009      6 comments

Reading JOPAPGH's blog reminded me: I've also been at SparkPeople for two months as of yesterday, July 10. I've used the nutrition tracker every day for every meal and only been a little less diligent on the exercise. Meaning that although I h... Read more
Golf
Friday, July 10, 2009      1 comments

Glorious evening on the golf course -- just the right temperature, beautiful blue skies and interesting clouds, not too many bugs, wonderful golf companions, purple liatris and yellow daylilies coming into bloom in the flower beds, the second cr... Read more
A Daily Walk Around the Garden
Thursday, July 02, 2009      4 comments

It's amazing how much pleasure there is to be had in a little walk around the garden at the house where I've now lived more than 22 years. Every day there is something new in bloom: right now, I'm especially enjoying my floppy pale pink antiq... Read more
Uncharacteristic patriotism for Canada Day, eh?
Tuesday, June 30, 2009      1 comments

Tomorrow is July 1st. What we Canadians used to call Dominion Day. And now call Canada's birthday (it's our 142nd, if you're asking) or Canada Day, or whatever. The failure to be prescriptive about the name is in itself pretty typical of Ca... Read more
A Little Fatigue . . . Having Faith
Thursday, June 25, 2009      7 comments

I am sustaining my cheerful mood and feeling grateful for the excellent treatment I'm getting (reducing my statistical chance of recurrence from about 25% to maybe 2-3%) but: the cumulative effect of the series of treatments is making me somewha... Read more
Shopping in My Closet
Saturday, June 20, 2009      3 comments

OK, the scales aren't moving just now -- only tantalizing me by wavering a pound or two lower, pausing provokingly, and then settling back on the 158.5. (This is, of course, a more reassuring portent of better things to come than the reverse --... Read more
Moving on Down!
Tuesday, June 16, 2009      2 comments

It was a thrill to see a "5" as the middle number on the scales today! Just 3.5 pounds to go to goal weight, but I know it may take 3 or more weeks to get there: the weight comes off much more slowly at this point. However, wearing a size six ... Read more
Feeling good and grateful
Thursday, June 11, 2009      2 comments

This has been a red letter day! Completed month one yesterday: I'm down a further three pounds -- five to go to goal weight. It is doable and -- with a lot of support -- I seem to be doing it. Much more fun rooting in my closet with clothes... Read more
Getting close to a month
Tuesday, June 09, 2009      6 comments

I'm almost at the one month point -- and am finding this approach to tracking food and exercise very helpful. More than half way to my goal weight: it's slow but steady -- and feeling confident that I will get there.... Read more
New Profile Image and Spark Page
Sunday, June 07, 2009      4 comments

It was fun today to work on finding a juicy watermelon profile image and watermelon wallpaper for my spark page, and then adding a few pictures. Many thanks for the encouragement to do this from SP member JOPAGH. And: I finally managed (with m... Read more
General uptick in mood
Saturday, June 06, 2009      2 comments

Tracking my nutrition and exercise plus the support from other Spark people is definitely having a positive effect on my mood. I'm a cheerful type anyhow: but this is a good place. Took some measurements today -- lost inches (neck, hips, w... Read more
Pretty good day!
Thursday, June 04, 2009      0 comments

Made it to the gym this morning; ate healthily all day (apparently a little light on the fats . . . despite almonds AND cashews!) and hopeful that I'll soon see another dip on the scales. It's slow but it's steady so that's gotta be ok.... Read more
Gym AND Golf
Tuesday, June 02, 2009      2 comments

Lots of exercise today -- gym at 5:30 a.m., golf after work (nine holes), a beautiful evening and feeling good. On track wtih the eating and not too fussed about the scales. The weight will go down in its own good time: it has to!... Read more
Waiting (im)patiently!
Monday, June 01, 2009      2 comments

OK, the weight has nowhere to go BUT down so long as I am sticking with the programme: and I am. And: I was able to wear a suit today which had not been comfortable for some time, so there has to be some change occurring all right. G... Read more
