Hi again. It is me. I am starting over again, again. This is the mountain-climbing, stressful, life challenge for me. I need to gain control of not just my weight, but my life, my whole world. I am moving beyond obese - my health is suffering. I... Read more

So, have you seen the documentary "Forks over Knives"? Its a life-changer, as far as I am concerned. It is the best single source I have seen that truly makes the case for removing meat and dairy from our diets. I am in total agreement with the ... Read more
Why is it embarrassing?
Saturday, June 04, 2011      4 comments

Why is it that I get so embarrassed when I come back to SparkPeople? I am embarrassed because I was so positive and moving in the right direction when I last wrote in here - which was five months ago. Nearly half a year. I got derailed again. An... Read more

Sometimes I feel inclined to make great proclamations here. I so want to convince myself that everything has finally changed. It is a struggle. And I am a bit ticked at myself at how much a struggle it all is, when I need to do this for my heal... Read more

Sunday, January 09, 2011      1 comments

So, I lost 8 pounds the first week "on plan". By "on plan" I mean: the first week I ate like an average person (approx 1500 calories a day, more than that the last 2 days). I only walked one day - 30 minutes of exercise because I am having a lot... Read more

I hate being a cliche. I really do. But this one time, I have to add my name to the New Year's Resolution Set and begin anew in 2011. I had been so frustrated - why can't I do this? Why is it so hard? I know I need to stop the fast food, the jun... Read more

A new day. A quick blog note to mark my space in here. I am finally at a place where I can do and not just say. I always talked, moaned, cried, wondered -- why I couldn't get on a healthier track. Now, I have turned a corner and been revitalized... Read more

I saw a photo of myself. It is on the website of where I work. I am not tagged. It is a view of me from the back. One might not know it was me unless you knew me well. But I am big. BIG. I am talking to two women I work with and I am double them... Read more
On the mend.

So, I have been a little sick lately. A nasty bronchial thing that has been very slow to go away. Just in the last couple days have I felt like I could normally function. Haven't worked out in ages though. But I have lost weight. I know, I know,... Read more

I haven't been faithful to the boot camp I signed up for. Commence the serious guilt. I felt like I let myself down. Thing is, I have been food tracking and doing some movement everyday- to varying degrees. I have spent some time on the Wii Fit ... Read more

I have been so all over the place -trying to get my healthier-me journey started. I guess I started it 14 months ago when I quit smoking. But now, I need to conquer this weight. To do that, I need to "become an exerciser" I have this psychologic... Read more

Tomorrow -- wait, today, is Thanksgiving. It is late at night and I am losing sleep as I write this. I have been going through this website, trying to be re-sparked. I am usually so verbose. I usually want to say so much about how I want to l... Read more
I can't "try" anymore
Tuesday, July 07, 2009      2 comments

So I met with a nice lady, a wellness coordinator/trainer. She has a great deal of insight and she talked with me about my health and fitness goals. She pointedly noted that I kept talking about my exercise goals, while using the word "try". As ... Read more
Feeling different, in a good way.

Yesterday, I ate in my calorie range. I ate with intention the whole entire day and I even went to the store starving (big no no!) and came home with a healthy little meal to make for the family. I ate fruit AND vegetables yesterday! I drank alm... Read more

So it has been almost a month since I started paying attention to what I am consuming. I have been so/so about food journaling in the last couple of weeks - but I have gotten back on track today. I finally switched over to using SP to track food... Read more
