I woke up early this morning anxious to get my official starting weight for my new challenges. I'll admit, I hadn't been tacking my food as closely as I needed to the past few days, and had eaten things I normally would not if I had been tracki... Read more

Wednesday, September 08, 2010      3 comments

Just when you think you have it all figured out, something comes along to throw all your plans into a whirlwind and toss you on your butt. The thing is, you never know what can happen. Thus the need for a back up plan. I have been great a... Read more

Back on track... but not alone!

The kids went back to school last Thursday, and rather than use my time wisely and really get a lot done toward my goals, I let the couple of lost days earlier that week seep into my attitude and I just didn't do much of anything. I didn't trac... Read more

Monday....the dreaded beginning of the new week, the day when everything that can go wrong, will. Not this one! I have to admit, after a sluggish, tired weekend, I wasn't sure I even wanted to get out of bed this morning, and although my g... Read more
An interesting day
Saturday, August 14, 2010      2 comments

Well, being the weekend and having the whole family home and together makes things interesting. My family supports my goals and my weight loss efforts, but they do not necessarily take part or make any change in their unhealthy habits. So betw... Read more
Self Assessment

So..... I have been thinking a lot about my goals. Mostly I have been thinking about the goal of getting under 250, particularly because it has been so infuriatingly elusive. I come so close, and then go right back away from it again...UG... Read more

Thursday, July 29, 2010      5 comments

For this week's action step, I was supposed to think about and write a blog concerning one trouble area I can work on. Something where I have issues I need to overcome. I can think of one area that really needs work- avoiding empty evening cal... Read more
Beating boredome with a bat
Friday, July 16, 2010      2 comments

OK, so in the past, if I was bored, I usually sat down and mindlessly stuffed my mouth with handfuls of, well, junk food of course. I was really bored last night. I decided I would try out some of the games on the new Wii Sports Resort I bough... Read more
Reading the Spark

After almost three months of being on SparkPeople, I bought the kindle version of the book "The Spark" and began reading it. Though I was a chubby kid, not a scrawny one, I could totally see myself in Chris' story about himself and I feel so em... Read more
Finding my motivation
Thursday, July 01, 2010      2 comments

As I take time reading blogs, comments and other things on SparlPeople, I find in this community my motivation. I look at the tickers that show progress and how far some people have come. I look at their motivation, their programs, and what ha... Read more
Reverence as a goal....?!
Tuesday, June 29, 2010      1 comments

So at church this past Sunday, the Bishop's son, who is heading to Chile for his mission, spoke about reverence. As he was speaking, it occurred to me that one of my goals I joined as part of one of my teams was to find 10 minutes for myself ea... Read more
More work- less results!?
Monday, June 21, 2010      1 comments

Last week I worked my butt off; well not literally because it is still here- all of it. I seem to be stuck on this relentless ride of a few tenths of a pound down, then up, then down, no up again. I feel like the harder I try, the less I get b... Read more
