I'm really starting to feel like I'm back in the swing of things around here. In my last blog, I said I'd check in again on June 1. So here I am! Ok, granted, I have plenty of room for growth. But I'm remembering what I like most about... Read more
Weight loss is a strange thing.
Wednesday, May 17, 2017      1 comments

Weight loss is a strange thing. It’s one of the few losses in life that is celebrated. It’s a loss that is easily regained. It can completely define my feelings of worth. When I lose, I am happy. When I gain, I am ashamed and angry. I have contr... Read more

A little over 2 years since my last blog entry. A lot sure has happened since then. I have been absent from this site but it’s never far from my mind. I grew and learned so much from the time I spent here. When I joined in 2008, I never guessed... Read more

Happy President's Day! I hope most of you are enjoying some time off work today. I have been somewhat productive--went for a 6 mile run, washed and cleaned the car, and ran an errand. Now I'm figuring out what to make for dinner, and I just enjo... Read more

I have a few minutes before I leave for spinning, so I thought I'd check in. I hope to be a bit more regular about blogging; it's such a good mental thing for me. Eating is still going well. I don't know if it's mental, but since I have bee... Read more

I finally have a minute to catch my breath, sit down, and write a blog. I’ve been writing this in my head for weeks, but I haven’t been able to find the time to put pen to paper. Or fingers to keyboard, in this case. I’ve been reflecting about a... Read more

Thank you all! I get the best support here. I really do. I appreciate all your feedback, suggestions, and encouragement. We all go through the same things; we just have to keep being honest with ourselves and each other. That's the only way to s... Read more

It’s time to write the blog I’ve been putting off writing. You know if I’m delaying a blog post it’s because it really needs to be written. Why? Because I’m probably avoiding using the greatest tool of SparkPeople. The tool of accountability. It... Read more
Gotta have MO cowbell

MO Cowbell. That was the name of the half marathon I ran this weekend. MO for Missouri, cowbell for the miniature cowbells they gave us to ring at the start line. Spectators were also ringing cowbells along the race course. But I didn't pick the... Read more

Is it really September already? I have not been on Spark much the past month and a half or so. Sorry to my spark friends who I haven't been checking in with as much as I'd like! Lots has been going on with me. At the end of July, my husband got ... Read more

Full vacation report

It’s only been a week, but already vacation is a distant memory. Boo for being back at work! Thankfully I like my job, but who really likes coming back to work after a literal mountain-top experience? Yosemite was amazing. If you’re an outd... Read more
I did that!

Not a lot of time to check in yet. I'm still catching up from vacation! I will post a longer recap later. But I had to stop by and say that I did this in Yosemite and lived to tell about it... ... Read more

As I write this, I'm recovering from oral surgery. This morning I had a minor procedure to remove this bump from the inside of my cheek. I've had it for a while, and it was a nuisance. It was right in the perfect spot for me to bite down on it w... Read more

Woo hoo! I met my March weight loss goal. (So what if it's halfway through April?) It feels so great getting these few pounds off. And people have been commenting left and right that they can tell I've lost weight. I'm liking the way my clo... Read more
