Dr. Amen and motivation
Wednesday, March 09, 2011      6 comments

Watched his lecture yesterday. He made a Lot of sense. He suggests we talk to our undisciplined inner child the way we would if we were a stern but kind parent. That child just wants what it wants, Now. Of course, the part of the brain that r... Read more
I didn't realize
Thursday, February 10, 2011      1 comments

Here's something that really shocked me, and not in a good way. Have you ever heard that, one of the main causes of frequent urination problems in older women (besides diabetes) is...belly fat. Yes, just like pregnancy. The belly weight is ... Read more
Half pounds on digital scale
Saturday, January 22, 2011      3 comments

I am still tracking my food, although I guestimate the calories for many things. The important thing is that I write down what I eat, and that helps me stay on track. Night time snacking is still my problem. I know that if I cut out sugar ... Read more
Some hopeful news
Friday, December 10, 2010      4 comments

Well, the Fibro. and Arthritis pain had gotten so bad in past few months, (and Energy problems) that I'd been skipping classes at the YMCA. Missing my Tai Qi/Qi Gong classes, and worrying that I'd never be able to do these movements again like... Read more
My Addiction
Monday, November 01, 2010      2 comments

Do I have to go back to not keeping ANY goodies in the house at ALL? Yeah, I think it's gotten to that point. I am so disgusted with myself. I didn't blow it altogether...but I sure didn't do what I intended to. Twice this past week,... Read more
Haircut is too short and I look terrible
Tuesday, October 19, 2010      4 comments

Yes, I'm vain. Too short means my body looks bigger, and it looks like I'm 10 lbs heavier. It's embarrassing. I feel like hiding out for the next couple weeks. My hair grows fast, so by then, it should be a little better. Otherwise, I'... Read more
Fall Seven Times....
Thursday, October 14, 2010      2 comments

I have the quote written on my page. It's "Fall Seven Times, Stand up Eight". Well, for me - it's probably closer to - "fall a hundred times...." and let me tell you, this time - it's very difficult to have the Faith that I can Do this. I... Read more
When I'm Vulnerable to Self sabotage
Monday, October 11, 2010      3 comments

When I'm vulnerable to slip-ups: I'm at an event with FREE FOOD! I'm sad or overly emotional about something and want to self-medicate with food. I'm not giving myself enough Love or Respect. I'm lying to myself, saying "I do... Read more
It's been months

Yeah, I've been AWOL from Spark, though haven't gained anything back. My good friend - i told her about Spark many months ago....just joined this week, and I am so hoping she perseveres. I told her I am proud of her. I am. I did a singin... Read more

On track again
Friday, May 21, 2010      5 comments

Just wanted to share, that I've been very discouraged and upset at my recent failures, and gaining back 5 of the 15 lbs I lost. I had at least been maintaining that loss for over a year....probably longer. This week I found my Hope again. ... Read more
Start by forgiving myself
Sunday, April 25, 2010      7 comments

It does not help to be so disgusted with myself. I got lost, I made mistakes, and I paid for it by gaining weight, instead of losing. Many people lost track of their food intake, when they're in a new relationship. I am also not used to ea... Read more
I'm going to make today Day One again!
Saturday, April 24, 2010      6 comments

I've not been doing well at all. And the big "start over" was a big flop. I did gain a few lbs, and my face looks fat, and I feel heavy and gross. And back in February, I was on my way, doing great. Then, came all the birthday celebrations ... Read more
Why do I keep losing my way?
Friday, April 23, 2010      8 comments

Damn. I was doing so well. Then, there were restaurant meals. And an evening class with BF to rush to, and no time to eat dinner. Later (after hours of doing interactive exercises together plus tantric breathing, and dancing, and contact impr... Read more
Grrr - weigh in at drs office today
Tuesday, April 13, 2010      5 comments

Really depressing to see that I'm up to 187.8 and was down to 181 last June, when I last saw the doctor. I knew I'd regained some weight, but seeing it like that, really bummed me out. Really, I look just the same...so maybe some of it is ... Read more
