First of all, I apogize if this is TMI! And Dennis, if you're reading this, and you don't wanna know, STOP READING NOW! haha! Last summer I got a traditional IUD (the 10 year one), after having had the 5 year Mirena kind before. The Mirena ... Read more

How do you keep the momentum alive after the first month? Yes, I am seeing results and am quite happy with them, but I am longing for bad food!!! Does allowing a cheat meal or day truly get it out of your system? I survived a (teriyaki chi... Read more
Set up for success!

At the beginning of the week, I had a couple of binges that I could have done without. One night I gave in to my Quizno’s craving and got TWO sammies, when one would have sufficed and I wouldn’t have gone way over on calories; the second night ... Read more
Unexpected health benefit

I noticed something yesterday, but first a little background: almost a year ago, a bunch of us went out on a pub crawl with some of our fellow soldiers who were leaving for Iraq. I was staying the night at a friend's house (don't drink and drive... Read more

I have read some truly inspirational blogs by other women on Spark – and I thought to myself, “what excuse do I have for NOT getting healthy and, more importantly, sticking with it?” My blood pressure and cholesterol are still in healthy ranges;... Read more
3 bites of Apple Pie

I didn't think it could be done! My best friend Keri (who has lost about 80 lbs I think, using Sparkpeople) always says (regarding dessert) - "Just take 3 bites and set the fork down." Greg cooked a Marie Callendar's Apple Pie (his favorite) an... Read more
Challenging the cops!

I work as a dispatcher in a Police Department - not very conducive to losing weight! We are practically chained to the console! Over the holidays (and beyond!) some of the officers got a little "fluffy". Well, today I half-jokingly suggested a ... Read more
7 days down!

It's been one solid week of getting back in the swing of things and tracking my food. Greg thinks I'll burn myself out on that. Tracking my food wasn't the problem before and I don't mind it (the task itself) at all. I went to training and there... Read more
Side-tracked from Zumba!

I made a committment to start Zumba today, and I blew it off to start putting ideas and concepts together for our kitchen remodel. Went to Home Depot where Greg works, looked at lighting, flooring, paint, countertops and backsplash pieces and st... Read more

I have been making GREAT choices this week! I've said NO to Starbucks and Taco Bell!! I've been packing my lunch and snacks for work; eating more fruit and salad. MEASURING my portions! It's getting a little easier! And a whole lot more educatio... Read more
Whew! Day 1 complete!
Friday, January 01, 2010 3 comments
So I tracked my food the ENTIRE day and I learned right away that Ranch and Caesar dressings are O-U-T OUT! I hate "throwing away" calories I could have had as another snack! Those were quite a few calories! I could have had my tiny dish of pep... Read more

These are more or less notes to myself - and others who want to remind me! I have always HATED running! When I was thin, I smoked - and hated running (but the Army made me)! Now I've been smoke-free for almost 8 years, but I'm fat: OF COUR... Read more

It occurred to me that I am running out of places to shop for “plus size” clothing where I live. I feel/look like I am perpetually pregnant. My jeans never stay up – my ass is GONE. All the stores around here that DO have plus sizes only go to 3... Read more
New Year, New Me!

Well, guess I should give myself credit for never (completely!) giving up! Yes, it was discouraging to be 20 lbs UP from Aug 2008, and I wasn't going to start tracking again until I got back to where I left off. But if I continue to wait for th... Read more

I was down 8 lbs yesterday from my July 24th weigh in! 17 lbs total since May (but I've REALLY been trying since the beginning of August!) I was a liiiiittle out of control on Sunday (went to a birthday party with my daughter), but then a l... Read more
