I would have been quite happy to have not done any exercise today, but I am in a team challenge that involves "doing" 5k. Chose a route closest to that distance where I live. Looked out the window - DARED the clouds to open up on me and set ou... Read more

In the last few weeks, I've had to start wearing a belt with a lot of my jeans. Today I tried on a smaller size that I bought a year ago and have never worn because I fell off the wagon (again) around the same time as buying them. They fit !!!... Read more

So, during July I exercised for about 2000 minutes. I counted the calories. I kept in my range. I created a 500-1000 calorie defecit most days which SHOULD have given me a healthy 1-2 pounds loss each week. Given that, it wouldn't have been ... Read more

This is my 3rd attempt to get in shape since I joined Spark in summer 2007. Lost some weight, fell off the wagon and put it back with extra. Tried again last year - lost 20 pounds, put it back on with interest. So with about 20 pound lost eac... Read more

I've been nursing a slipped disc since Monday. Haven't been able to exercise this week. Most of the time haven't been able to stand upright or bend over. It improves a little bit each day but I think it will be several more days before I'm up... Read more

It was one of my sons' birthday yesterday, and he had a massive chocolate birthday cake. 1 tiny portion contained just 250 calories. I was really good. I had just one slice of that cake, and in the evening had a pint of lager and a packet of ... Read more

Yesterday when I was drinking my breakfast coffee, I had a desire for a custard cream. I ignored it, because it was grocery day and I had an iced donut in my order and that was to be my "treat" for the day. All morning that custard cream nagge... Read more

This morning's weigh and measure-in showed 2 pounds down and 1/2 inch gone from my waist and hips. Pleased with that because I worked hard this week - at least 30 mins cardio everyday, and a couple of hikes during the week. Also managed to kee... Read more

my first spark weigh-in today. I've lost 3lbs. It's not the first week of my calorie counting, but is the first week of proper exercise, so this is amazing. Also lost 1" from my waist and 1/2" from my backside since last week. I think the ex... Read more
