My Browser Stopped Eternity Loading and November Recap
Friday, December 03, 2010      17 comments

I am not delusional about my great importance (most of the time) but I wanted to address why I have been unable to Spark much these past two weeks. My computer was taking forever to load or not load Spark pages at all. Yesterday I was able to en... Read more
I'm A Mexican't
Friday, November 12, 2010      22 comments

I have eaten so much Mexican food this week that it is no wonder I have turned into a pinata. My low point was eating nachos alone in my car while I waited for an oil change. That's just sad. I didn't work out at all until yesterday but tha... Read more
Time Warp, Non Scale Defeat, and November Goals
Monday, November 01, 2010      25 comments

I ended the month of October at the same exact weight I started on October 1st. I am still at 237.4 pounds. That means the month of October may as well never have happened for all the difference it made on the scale. I lost and regained the same... Read more
Wobble Week and Some Math (Long and Boring)
Friday, October 22, 2010      12 comments

I haven't been Sparking much this week so I have a lot of member blogs to catch up on. I have been tracking, though, and it's been strange food behavior and little exercise for the week. I was dealing with a family emergency that necessitated sp... Read more
The Echo Effect
Friday, October 15, 2010      13 comments

I am starting to think that losing weight is like direct deposit. You don't get paid for the last week you worked. It's the week before that OR if you work for the federal government then the week before that one. Thus it was that I worked very ... Read more
Tahoe Queen or Gang Aft Agley
Tuesday, October 12, 2010      9 comments

I failed spectacularly on all facets of my plan for Tahoe. On Saturday I ate more calories than I usually eat in a day before I even got to the all-you-can-eat buffet on the boat. This included a pumpkin spice latte in the morning and pumpk... Read more
Last Week Was Pride This Week's The Fall
Friday, October 08, 2010      10 comments

I was down 4.3 pounds last week and this week I am up 1.8 pounds. This means that I still have a net loss of 2.5 pounds for two weeks which is great but I am counting the last week for September and this uptick for October. I am further away fro... Read more
Friday Weigh-In and October Goals
Friday, October 01, 2010      19 comments

I just wanted to title this blog HE*& YEAH! but I decided that might offend some people besides coming off as just a tad cocky. Pride cometh before a fall and all that. However, I did lose 4.3 pounds this week. That is my biggest weight loss in ... Read more
I Bit the Bullet and Weighed Myself After More Than Six Weeks
Friday, September 24, 2010      12 comments

The last time I posted a weight was on July 30, 2010. I had just lost two pounds a week for two weeks in a row and then one pound the next week. And then it started to go up again and due to a character flaw I didn't post and as it went up and u... Read more
Threw Out My Shoulder While Using the Computer
Monday, September 20, 2010      6 comments

SO, I was very excited about my trip up to Tahoe this weekend. We love it and this is the third time we've gone. We first went more than a year ago. That time we went parasailing, jet skiing, Heavenly Gondolaing, and swimming and hot tubbing. Th... Read more
The Long, Painful Plantar Fasciits of the Sole
Saturday, September 04, 2010      8 comments

I think I am so funny! I am referring, of course, to the long dark night of the soul. This blog title came to me in the middle of the night when turning over in my stupid little night splints woke me up. I can only wear those things for a few ho... Read more
Acceptable Waist to Hip Ratio
Monday, August 02, 2010      17 comments

My waist is now at 40". That is two inches down from when I first started measuring it on the first of the month. My hips are at 51" giving me a ratio of .78 which is in the good range for cardiovascular health. Also, I was walking up and down h... Read more
I Love the Feel of the Cold Scale in the Morning It Feels Like...
Friday, July 16, 2010      8 comments

VICTORY! I am down two pounds this morning for the first time loss in over a month. I think it is no coincidence that I stopped one of my meds last Friday after posting yet another gain of three pounds.... Read more
Crying & Trying in June and I Gained 1.8 Pounds
Thursday, July 01, 2010      11 comments

I consider this a victory, actually. I plan to keep on eating as close to my range as possible and exercising as much or more than I have been. I plan to keep up on the C25K. I will run W3D2 this morning. My statistics are discouraging exce... Read more
Fishing, Floating, & Freebasing Fat
Monday, June 28, 2010      5 comments

I had lots of fun yesterday and my calories reflect that. I had a total of 149 fat grams for the day. That is more than twice my maximum. We went fishing in an inflatable raft from Walmart in the middle of White Pines Lake off of Highway 4 here ... Read more
