Wednesday, June 22, 2011      9 comments

I'm so happy with myself for reaching a milestone of 100 days of exercising. I can no longer say that I'm not able to be consistent. I'm going to keep going at it. I can tell that my exercise has paid off even though the scale hasn't changed... Read more

I can hardly believe it myself but I have mananged to keep up an exercise streak of over 60 days now. My goal is just 10 minutes a day but usually I do way more, like for instance last night I went for a 75 minute walk with my neighbor. Th... Read more

I found this meaningful quote that I thought I would share. It seems apropos to my exercise streak that I am starting this week. There is no royal road to anything. One thing at a time, all things in succession. That which grows fast, with... Read more

Last week I ran into an acquaintance at a social function whom I have not seen in several months. The first time I glanced over at her I was thinking "who's that? that can't be 'Lisa'!" A little while later I saw her again and she recognized m... Read more

I'm not sure what compelled me to check in this morning on SP but as I was updating my Sparkpage after (gulp) almost a year of absence I felt more and more like I need to be here again and that I've missed SP! Weightwise, I'm almost back to... Read more

Finally after 6 weeks of being stuck at the same weight, it appears that the scale is registering a loss of 1 pound. The cool part is that I dropped out of the 130's into the 120's. 129 sounds so much better than 130! I'm sure all this ti... Read more
Oh my gosh, I can wear this pair of old jeans! They were my favs!

I'm so excited. I had kept one pair of old jeans that I used to wear about 10 years ago. As I was looking in my closet at my choices for the day, I was wondering what to wear. And then I saw them and thought "I wonder, will these fit?" I put... Read more

First let me say that I think I am basically a happy and optimistic person about life in general. However, when I first started this journey in January I had what I think are typical thoughts about how it would make me feel to finally lose the ... Read more
Math Calculations and a Graph with the best fit slope, just like in 8th grade
Tuesday, April 07, 2009      1 comments

Today I was poking around my start page and decided that maybe I should revise my original, optimistic and somewhat lofty goal of hitting my goal weight by May 8th. Afterall it is not likely that I'm going to lose 12-13 pounds in the next month... Read more
A little epiphany about eating well
Thursday, April 02, 2009      3 comments

It really does matter what foods make up our daily intake of calories. When I first started using the nutrition tracker I just put in what I ate and tried to stop eating when I reached 1500 calories. While I wouldn't exactly say that I was eat... Read more
Perfection isn't necessary!
Monday, March 30, 2009      3 comments

Having almost always struggled with being a bit of perfectionist has actually hurt me in the past accomplishing goals that I set for myself, especially in the weight loss department. I'm finally experiencing that what you do over the long haul ... Read more
