Not tracking - how it's going
Wednesday, May 09, 2018      0 comments

Almost a month ago, I wrote that I was going to Not Track Anymore, at least for a while. At the very least, I can confidently say that I've not been overeating, and have felt better than I did earlier this year when I wasn't paying any att... Read more
Why I'm giving up on tracking (at least for now)
Thursday, April 12, 2018      4 comments

Oh, tracking. Like many Sparkers, I've always had a love-hate relationship with it. Okay, maybe just hate. But, I felt like it worked, right? I mean, I lost 20 pounds by tracking a couple years ago. I gained it back when I stopped tracking. ... Read more
Lax on tracking (but that's okay)
Monday, July 18, 2016      2 comments

On super busy days, especially weekends, when I'm out and about, I sometimes get a little lax with food tracking. In the past, I've sometimes waited until the end of the day to look back at photos (or go by memory) to track all my food on these ... Read more

Warning: This post is about my poop and farts and other gross stuff, that you may find ultra gross, so stop reading now if you don't want to hear about it! :) A couple weeks ago, I started a new medication that sometimes has a side effe... Read more
Finally - spring!
Monday, April 18, 2016      3 comments

Trying not to get too excited yet, but I finally feel like things are turning around for me. I mentioned in my last blog post that I set up a new therapist -- I've seen her twice so far, and she seems like a pretty good match from those tw... Read more
MOTIVATION!!!
Thursday, March 31, 2016      1 comments

Sooooo I've kind of stalled on the weight loss front.. I read my last post and was kind of bummed to see that I'd fallen even farther; since that post, I've gained 3 or 4 pounds. Blech! Motivation is a slippery little fish, because I can u... Read more
Cold days + Little Sunlight = Maintanence
Friday, February 05, 2016      1 comments

In the last visit with my personal trainer, at the very beginning of December, she suggested I just stick to maintenance through the holidays. Well, the holidays came and went, but I've still been only maintaining and not losing the remaining 15... Read more
Trying to get some momentum back
Wednesday, December 02, 2015      0 comments

Once I realize it's been anywhere near a month since I last measured myself, I take measurements again. But this past time, barely anything had changed. My waist was the same, my belly (I take the measurement at my belly button) was the same, hi... Read more
STILL making some progress
Tuesday, September 01, 2015      0 comments

In the 3.5 weeks since my last post, I'm happy to say that nothing has changed. I'm still making progress. I had lost five pounds then; I'm now up to 9. The last time I lost a little bit of weight, I couldn't seem to get past 183, and slowly wen... Read more
Making some progress
Friday, August 07, 2015      1 comments

For quite a while, I felt like what was best for me was sticking to just maintaining/not gaining. And that WAS what was best for me. But now, I finally feel motivated to make some changes to get back in shape. A little over a month ago, I ... Read more

I was talking to a friend last night on the phone, and she mentioned how she felt hurt that her mom hadn’t commented on her recent weight loss. I guess she’d offered a pair of pants that were too big for her to her mom, and her mom acted a littl... Read more
FitBit tracking woes – Or, why it was “so darn easy!!” to eat in my calorie range
Friday, October 17, 2014      2 comments

I hadn’t put much thought into how my FitBit synced with SparkPeople. The only thing I really actively noticed was how sometimes, if I added something to “My Nutrition” in Spark but then deleted it, it often still showed up in FitBit! But ... Read more
My own kinda DietBet
Tuesday, October 14, 2014      0 comments

I was recently asked to join in on a DietBet. The original requestor asked me and one other woman: Should we do the 10% in 6 months, or the 4% in 4 weeks? I did the math, and that would mean 7.6 pounds for me. No thanks. I said I’d be up for the... Read more

Something happened to me recently that I don't recall ever happening before, and even though I know it happens to OTHER people all the time, I never thought it would happen to ME! Okay, okay, I'm being a little bit overdramatic. But basica... Read more
Even if you slip..
Friday, August 29, 2014      0 comments

I think my grumpy mood finally started to lose its hold on me after .. well.. forever, earlier this week. Just a little bit, but sometimes, just a little bit makes a big difference. It started when Monday, the internet led me to some jealo... Read more
