I just measured my waist this morning, for the first time in ages, and a nice surprise - it seems to have gone down a little bit!! It used to be around the 35" mark, where they start saying it's a risk for developing diabetes, which worries me..... Read more
Shrinking myself
Monday, May 02, 2011      2 comments

I'm a member of the Shrink Yourself team here on Spark, having been tipped off about the book by someone on here a couple of years ago. What Dr Gould writes about, regarding emotional eating and the triggers for this, makes a LOT of sense for me... Read more
Zumba yesterday!
Sunday, February 08, 2009      1 comments

I've been hearing about Zumba out on the blogosphere, but it's not easy to find in the UK yet. But.... a course of 5 Saturday classes started in Central London yesterday and I signed up and went along. It was cool!! As they say -- it's more like... Read more

I went running today - the first time since my knee arthroscopy at the end of january. Whooohoooo!!! It felt good, man!! It was finally time - I had bought a new pair of running shoes yesterday to use with my new insoles, so that I was gi... Read more
Investing in me
Sunday, May 04, 2008      1 comments

I haven't blogged for a while, but I posted to a couple of teams yesterday to recommend getting gait analysis and orthotics, after the great success I've had so far with mine. And I found myself writing this, which was worth "telling myself" her... Read more
Start over...
Saturday, March 15, 2008      3 comments

I just read Lita's post about starting over, in The Knees Spark Team, and it really applies. I need to get going again at being healthy and active, and stop marking time... The clocks change to summer time at the end of the month, and that's alw... Read more
New high..
Saturday, February 23, 2008      3 comments

ok, it was inevitable because of my knee operation, but it's still distressing... My weight has gone up again and I am now at my big mental barrier-that-I-must-not-cross of 180 lbs again... (Actually, I saw 180.5 on the scales when I did my wee... Read more
Telling myself this too...
Sunday, January 20, 2008      2 comments

I just posted this on one of my SparkFriend's blogs, in response to a post of hers, but once I had written it I realised I needed to record it here as well - it's quite an important thing for me to remember... ___ In the 12-18 months c... Read more
The Big 4-0
Tuesday, January 08, 2008      3 comments

Well, the Big 4-0 is here tomorrow! Today is the last day of my Thirties - what a thought... And now that it's here, it's not nearly as scary as the thought of it has been over the past year or so. I'm feeling very positive about 2008, and all ... Read more
Still here, still...
Saturday, June 16, 2007      1 comments

I'm still here.... And I'm still not losing weight, but I'm starting to get my head around why I crave sugar, and overeat in the evenings... I'm also beginning to turn the corner on getting more exercise... Grrrrrrrrrr, this is frustrating,... Read more
7 days
Friday, May 25, 2007      2 comments

OK, seven days for that streak. Not earth-shattering for some, but pretty darn encouraging for me. Today has not been good, but that's fine - I'm getting right back at it tomorrow. [Grits teeth, looks determined, and exits stage left.]... Read more
Trying a streak
Tuesday, May 22, 2007      0 comments

I've decided to try and do one of those Spark Streaks. There's one single thing that I can do that will SIGNIFICANTLY alter my success with my weight battle: to NOT overeat in the evenings. So. Let's do that. Let's see how far I get. ... Read more
Back to Stage 1
Sunday, May 20, 2007      1 comments

I've moved myself back to Stage 1. I am really going nowhere on the ticker, although I am making micro-progress in the mental battle that this weight-loss project is for me. This is not defeat, just realism, and I am still hanging in there.... Read more
Still here...
Friday, May 11, 2007      0 comments

I'm still here, still hanging in here. Not exactly succeeding from a numbers point of view, but I *am* trying to make good choices and am beginning to feel better. I've always been slooooooooow to lose weight, slow, slow, slow, so I need to reme... Read more
Heading in a better direction
Wednesday, May 02, 2007      0 comments

At last, the scales have headed slightly downwards again. This week I've been taking a more substantial snack to eat around 5pm (plus eating lunch a bit earlier, around 12:30pm) and that seems to have balanced things out a bit better for me. Th... Read more
