Back from Alaska
Monday, August 26, 2019      2 comments

I didn't make my personal goal weight before the cruise to Alaska but I'm happy that I lost 1/2 lb while on the cruise. No kidding, I ate mostly what I wanted but walked A LOT. Now that I've been back for a week I'm down another lb. The one t... Read more

Well heck. I didn't great two days ago....then crapped out. I had planned on starting great today but went to McDonalds for a McMuffin. Should I really log a McMuffin on my McFoodTracker? How about the chocolate cream cheese brioche that I j... Read more
Mixed feelings - Day 1.....again

Not sure whether to be happy or sad about this. On 8/28/17 I last logged in to Spark People and was 237. Today is 7/22/19 and I'm 239. Yeah me, only 2 lbs in 2 years. But big bummer that I'm still heavy two years later. Looks like will-powe... Read more

It finally happened! I hit my first goal of 10 lbs lost. Took forever, but at least I'm moving forward. And then...I was down another 1 this morning. That's a total of 11. Holy Cow! I've added in more protein and veggies...seems to be doing... Read more

I've been at a stand still with weight loss for a while and it's frustrating. I'm logging my food and tracking my fitness but still the scale won't move. I signed up for SparkPeople Premium and emailed a Spark Coach to get a better insight to ... Read more

Elevator squats - whoa!
Wednesday, August 02, 2017      4 comments

So, I started doing squats in the elevator at work (when I'm alone). Holy cow! Without even trying I think I'm doing about 50 squats a day. Doesn't seem like much until you try to move the next day. A few more weeks (months) of this and I'm... Read more
I'm seeing some progress

Even though I feel like I've been at this for a couple of months I'm finally starting to see the scale move - downward. I'm down 8 lbs the hard way. I'm starting to realize that for my body I can't pay too much attention to the extra calories ... Read more

I started this SP journey on May 18 (other wise known at Mt. St. Helen's Day in the Pacific Northwest) and so far I'm just struggling with weight loss. I'm tracking all my food, going to the gym a couple days a week and I'm only down 5 lbs in tw... Read more
Fitbit Blaze = motivation
Tuesday, July 11, 2017      2 comments

In an earlier post I said that I was making a list of "rewards" for losing pounds. So far I haven't achieved any of those first baby step goals but I just couldn't resist a really good deal today on Amazon Prime Day. I just bought a Fitbit Bla... Read more
Here I am again...again....again
Monday, July 10, 2017      4 comments

I weighed in this morning and basically undid all the previous work I'd accomplished. But at least I didn't get back to higher than I started (if only by 1 lb). I'm recommitting myself even thought I still have 7 stitches in my hand. I ... Read more
Fell off the wagon...but not too far

I haven't tracked in several days. I feel like I"m in confession. Forgive me Father...I've not tracked.... I had trigger finger surgery on July 3rd and just haven't felt up to eating right or exercising. Just haven't felt like doing much of... Read more

When I read the main page and see the successes that people are posting I keep hearing about the Keto plan. Might have to look in to this more. Just once I'd like to lose more than 1 lb at a time. Maybe my body is weird and I need to work a mo... Read more
The weekend's are tough
Monday, June 19, 2017      0 comments

Just when I think it's safe to eat...the weekend comes along. Derailed again. Oh well. I'm getting good at starting over. During the week I can stay on a great time schedule with food but the weekends are hard. Too much free time? IDK. Ne... Read more
Stress eating - yep
Wednesday, June 14, 2017      4 comments

Yesterday was a terrible day at work. I made a mistake, owned up to it and still feel the weight of the world on me. I just knew that I didn't want to go to the gym and have a big salad for dinner. I wanted comfort food! Went to the local Tue... Read more
