Saturday, January 20, 2018      9 comments

Well, in a few weeks it will be 2 years since I started here. Being mostly bedridden with a neuro-immune disease, it is very hard to lose weight and build any muscle. But, I lost 46lbs of the total 65 I was aiming to lose, about 30 of which was ... Read more

Well, I haven’t written very much so far this year. I was having a really hard time around the anniversary of me being on the site. I wanted a big moment, an even number to come back to so I could say I made progress. I wanted to put this being ... Read more

OK, so it has been a year since I joined. I have lost 34 lbs since my highest, which was about a year and 4 months ago, and in the past year since joining I've lost 28 lbs so far. I am halfway to where I intend to be. It's great progress, e... Read more

So, I have now lost 33lbs total, and 27lbs since being on this site (although I am rarely actually ON this site - I really just check in now to log lbs lost). It's been almost a year since I signed up. When I last looked on here, it looked... Read more

Well, it has been quite some time since I checked in to this site. Today I am at a loss of 23 lbs total, 17 since I joined the site. I don't have an exact goal, but to get back to an average of where I used to be when I was healthy and in ... Read more
FINALLY...Progress
Wednesday, July 27, 2016      3 comments

Well, at last I have something new to report. I have been on Spark since Feb. 4th, 2016 (so over 5 months), and I started losing weight in Sept 2015 from my highest, which I'd been hovering at for over a year. In the first 5 months, I lost 5lbs,... Read more
BMI Is BS - A Great Article!
Sunday, May 29, 2016      5 comments

Well, I am feeling kind of frustrated that I've been sick so much since starting the "Finding 10" Challenge this time around. I've had to stop to lay down because of fevers and other problems just as many days as I've been able to do something. ... Read more
Finally, Progress!
Friday, May 20, 2016      0 comments

Well, I averaged about a lb a week for about 15 wks, 9 of which were on this site. And then, my body said no more. It took 6.5 wks, with my weight going up and down and my life being really exhausting and out of control, before I was able to los... Read more
Starting Over, From Where I Left Off
Friday, May 13, 2016      1 comments

Well, I think it has been nearly 2 months since I was working on this. Life came in and took over. I got really sick. At the same time, I had a bunch of work commitments all come at the same time, with new deadlines every single day for huge pro... Read more
Long Term Goals
Friday, March 18, 2016      0 comments

I am still working on figuring this out. But I do know that long-term, I would like to have muscle, be active, be relaxed, and enjoy myself every day. I would like to get to a place where I am independent and self-sufficient, where I no longer l... Read more

Thursday, February 18, 2016      0 comments

I am working on trying to break through this poundage issue. I have not been under 180 in maybe a year, which really concerns me because that is way too much weight for my frame. And I am trying to remember that just improving the care I take of... Read more
Setting Goals
Monday, February 15, 2016      0 comments

I am still working on taking better care of myself, finding balance, and accepting imperfection. To be honest, I haven't been working on having fun at all, because something else came up in life that seemed to be a much bigger priority - and it ... Read more
