I weighed myself yesterday and was amazed by the results. I had been off program for three month and I expected to have gained a little. I lost 8.4 pounds instead! I'm stunned. I guess I did learn something when I was on program last year. ... Read more

I rejoined Spark people a year ago. I fell off program twice since then, so I was on program and off program about an equal amount. Tomorrow is weigh in day and I'm dreading it. I have to accept whatever it is. I'm just really hoping that it... Read more
walking, sinuses, small goal today

I've been walking more the last couple of weeks. Unless I go to the store, I'm doing it by walking a few minutes every hour. This keeps my knees from stiffening up too much an seems to work well for me most of the time. I was sore for days af... Read more

I have no holiday related plans for today. I was never big on greeting card holidays and only celebrated them because it was expected by people in my life. My late hubby loved Valentines Day. He liked the excuse to buy a really big box of fan... Read more

Back for 2 weeks and I've lost 15.4 pounds. I've been making myself walk more and not giving in to the back pain as soon as I feel it. I lean over and stretch out the area where the pain is and it usually lets up a bit. Getting up and down mor... Read more

I spent most of the day cleaning in the kitchen. My stove top took hours. The people who lived here before must not have ever cleaned it. I've been cleaning it and scrubbing it with sos pads for a long time and the stove looked okay, not perf... Read more

I went grocery shopping last night and got a lot of walking in. It felt good, and I only overdid it a little bit. My calves are a little tight today but stretching once in awhile helps. My lower back is fine. I leaned over and stretched it ou... Read more

In the last 2 months, I regained most of what I had lost during the four months before that when I rejoined Spark People after years away.. I wasn't able to be online every day and lost my focus. The holiday season stress got to me and I fell o... Read more

I fell off the wagon and gained a couple pounds about a month ago. I stopped tracking meals two weeks ago because I just couldn't keep track of them. Things were hectic at home, so I just did the best I could as far as eating and exercise went.... Read more

The last month has been challenging for me. I twisted my knee then when it was feeling better I woke up one day running a fever. I felt yucky and got dizzy moving too quickly for a week. I took it easy, took naps, and made sure to drink my wa... Read more

Getting my son to go grocery shopping has been hard these last two weeks because of his hand and he has been working overtime. He said we would go tonight because he looked at what we had left on the shelf. He doesn't like the idea of me havin... Read more
