Rainy Lazy Weekend
Friday, August 28, 2009      7 comments

Latish on Friday night after a great theatre production -- it's raining on the skylight over my head and I can hear the wind howling gently. And the forecast calls for rain all weekend. Not such a bad thing, actually -- an excellent reaso... Read more
MAINtenance: After Three Months SP, It's My Main Thing
Tuesday, August 11, 2009      6 comments

Yesterday was three months for me at SparkPeople: and I continue to be amazed at and grateful for this remarkable site and all the people who participate in it! I'm continuing to track my nutrition faithfully. Most of the time I am hittin... Read more
Muchos Nachos Not-so Great!
Monday, August 03, 2009      6 comments

I was thrilled to be able to play golf yesterday -- it was nine holes only, and with a power cart: but still! Beautiful evening, best company (my husband); and we stopped for a glass of wine on the patio of the club house afterwards. "Let's ge... Read more
Persistence
Wednesday, July 29, 2009      3 comments

I'm enjoying the thoughtful comments on blogs from SparkFriends and in particular the message boards in my new At Goal and Maintaining team. It's very helpful to be part of a community of people who are trying to be healthy, know it's not... Read more
Beginning the Work of Maintaining
Thursday, July 23, 2009      4 comments

So far, I'm not getting much of a sense of how many calories I need to eat to maintain weight loss . . . so I'm just sticking with the programme for now. I don't want to be gaining weight, that's for sure, particularly since I'm still not able... Read more
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
