January wasn't quite the month I had hoped it to be in terms of excercise, but I'm extremely proud of all the house construction that we (the hubs and I) got accomplished. Plus, even without Sparking and excercising regularly, I still managed t... Read more

I've been doing a lot of reflection to help me make 2012 the year that I get this weight journey under control. Here are a few of my realizations so that I can come back and revisit them whenever I need an extra boost. 1) Work outs always ... Read more

Over the past year I've had some pretty big changes happen in my life. Just a few: My hubby and I were blessed to be able to adopt our foster daughter who is now a beautiful toddler, we had to put our blind puppy to sleep, we sold our townhouse... Read more

SOOooo, I meant to start over back in April, but life had another change in mind for me. I became a Mommy! Just one day after I decided to get back on track, my husband and I got a call to pick up a little one that had just been born and neede... Read more

I started my journey with SP back in the end of August '09. For those first few months I relished in my progress. I went from being completely inactive, to working out twice a day on the lonely treadmill in my office, from eating whatever soun... Read more

I'm SOOoo thrilled that I can actually change my weight ticker today! It's been stuck at 174.8 for the better part of 2 months now. I couldn't bring myself to move it up to 176 during the weeks that I bounced between 176 and 174. BUT, today I ... Read more

I've been bouncing back and forth between 174-176 for about 6 weeks now and I'm REALLY ready to leave this plateau in the dust! Funny thing is, I started working out at the gym 4 weeks ago and that hasn't made the scale budge like I think it sh... Read more

.. but don't get me wrong, I'm going to keep it up! It makes me a little sad because it makes me feel fat all over again. Not hugely fat or anything, and I'm really glad that I lost 15 lbs at home before I started going, but the people tha... Read more

... being 'between sizes' is somewhat frustrating. I am truly ecstatic that my size 12's are getting baggy in the rear, but the 10's are still too tight to be acceptable, so I feel like I look a bit sloppy. Don't get me wrong, I am definitely ... Read more
It's not health related, but I need to talk...

I really need an outlet and SP seems like a good place to let it all out... this is going to be a long one... My husband and I are trying to become foster parents. It's something we've talked about doing ever since we were dating. First ... Read more

Welllll... Halloween didn't go exactly as I had planned. Before going out, I looked up a few of my favorite drinks and preplanned what and how much I was going to have. Two drinks in and I decided to nix the plan altogether. BAD IDEA! And no... Read more

I'm so excited!! For a few reasons... First, my pants are getting too loose!! When I first joined SP, I had just bought a pair of size 14 pants because my 12's were just too tight all around to work anymore. After just a few weeks here, I... Read more

I spent a week on vacation with family in Florida at a beautiful resort in West Palm Beach last week. I had a fabulous time (especially with the baby nephew that lives on the opposite coast than me), but choosing acceptable food was a bit of an... Read more
Is this normal, or just 'normal' for me? AND, suggestions please :)

For almost a month now, the scale has begrudgingly moved just a few lbs downward. Now don't get me wrong, I'm thankful for those lbs and will gladly continue losing weight at this pace if it's the way that my body does things. What I don... Read more
Why is it...?
Thursday, October 08, 2009      4 comments

Why is it that I never, in my life, feel as pudgy as I do trying clothes on in a dressing room? I get that I have to stand un-naturally close to the mirror and that the lighting is the furthest thing from flattering, but seriously, are stores T... Read more
