Attitude, Motivation, Momentum: Keeping My Word to Myself
Sunday, January 11, 2015      17 comments

Yesterday Siebold told me that he'd be "right beside me". And today he tells me, I've ALSO gotta keep my word to myself. Then: he explains HOW. Terrific stuff, short and rather sweet. So: here are the steps: I know (logically) why... Read more
No Excuses and Right Beside You
Saturday, January 10, 2015      28 comments

Sound familiar? NO CHOICE (Beck). Forget Moderation (Berkeley). And Siebold at Day 6 says the same thing. Excuses ("Just this once won't hurt") exhaust the mental energy required to focus on success. Excuses subject us to the torture ... Read more
Forgive Myself for Being Fat: Let It Go!
Friday, January 09, 2015      23 comments

Siebold knows that he annoyed viewers at Day Four -- and a lot of 'em quit. Today he asks me to think about why I am fat. What's the logical reason? And inevitably, he says, it's because of emotions, uncontrolled emotions that caused me... Read more
Who Am I?
Thursday, January 08, 2015      21 comments

Am I a fat person who can't control herself? Is that what my body is telling me and telling my kids and telling my friends and acquaintances and business colleagues? Steve Siebold continues to tell it like it is. At Day Four (a day ... Read more
Grow Up, Suck It Up!
Wednesday, January 07, 2015      23 comments

As ONEKIDSMOM points out in her comment to yesterday's blog, Berkeley and Beck say the say thing. Be tough. No Choice. And . . . so does Siebold. His version: that's the headline up there. A bit more "in your face"? Not so much "c... Read more
Siebold -- SO BOLD!
Tuesday, January 06, 2015      26 comments

www.fatlosers.com Just taking a refresher jaunt with another Sparkie through the free (used to be $500) 21 day video coaching offered by Steve Siebold -- multi-millionaire corporate motivational speaker. Link above -- and ... Read more
Short Order Cooks
Monday, January 05, 2015      23 comments

Interesting wrinkle on the "salt/sugar/fat" theme of manufacturers deliberately making addictive foods. One result, apparently, is that "home cooks" (especially those trying to make reasonably healthy meals) can't compete with deliciousness... Read more
Small Changes We Can Live With
Sunday, January 04, 2015      22 comments

Really loved this article from yesterday's Toronto Star. Small "liveable" changes -- tweaking nutrition sustainably. Makes sense. There are links to a couple of interesting recipes. A bread. A potato frittata nest with egg. And: a... Read more
Fit and Fat?
Saturday, January 03, 2015      15 comments

Is it possible to be fit and fat? Dunno. but if you google the phrase, you'll come up with a whole bunch of different opinions. Some based upon research, some based upon (understandable) indignation about discrimination, in the context o... Read more
Obesity In The Workplace: Toxicity Alert??
Friday, January 02, 2015      23 comments

Weight steady. I'm continuing to kick up the protein at lowest possible calorie "price" -- for example, egg white omelette with a full cup instead of half cup of egg white (plus low fat feta and lots of spinach, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms).... Read more
2015 -- Moving Forward (with Beck Green Review)
Thursday, January 01, 2015      15 comments

DD tells us (only joking a little bit) that it's her New Year's resolution to "be more like Charlie" (our beloved golden retriever). Gotta agree -- it's a noble aspiration! But given it's waaaay more than I can do to be as good a p... Read more
It's New Year's Eve!!
Wednesday, December 31, 2014      28 comments

Weight is steady -- lowest in 2014. I'm reading through "The complete Beck Diet for Life" (green book, from the library) and finding it fascinating!! Plan to read the whole book and then consider if I want to embark upon this program "form... Read more
Five Days . . .
Tuesday, December 30, 2014      21 comments

. . . . to get rid of those water-weight pounds. But they're gone: and I'm a half pound BELOW my pre-Christmas weight. Hardly dare to write it down, tempting the gods!! Salad for lunch, check. Soup for supper, check. Staying away... Read more
Stuck UP!
Monday, December 29, 2014      27 comments

Weight remains stuck at the 2.5 UP pounds (after an exemplary low salt and reasonable calorie day yesterday). OK then: a good reminder for me why even ONE day of moderate indulgence is . . . . not a good idea. (Not to mention a second m... Read more
Level 19!
Sunday, December 28, 2014      20 comments

Lots and lots of Sparkie Maintainers have been at level 20 for years. But I've been so SLOW to get to 19 -- watching the countdown on the points. And now: one more level and 20,000 points more to go!! Scales at the gym yesterd... Read more
