Reflecting on the journey
Sunday, May 05, 2019      8 comments

I love Sparkpeople. I really do. I've been a member for a LONG TIME albeit not as active in the past several years. But this app, this tracker, gives so much information and the graphs are the best for seeing how the day really turned out. It h... Read more
Time to embrace the mobile features.

Way back when I initially joined Sparkpeople, there was a monthly fee. Thus was back in 2004 or 2005. I was wildly successful, but maintenance has not been a thing for me. I've gained, lost, gained, lost, and gained it again in this time. In t... Read more

Well, my last blog post was called "The Big 5-0," and it was the "start" of my journey to lose 50 pounds by age 50. I wrote it about a month ago in recognition that my 49th birthday was fast approaching. Today is the day. My 49th birthday. ... Read more

As I was reading last night, with my reading glasses, I was faced with the sobering reminder of my aging and how important it is to take special care o... Read more
What a run!
Sunday, February 08, 2015      2 comments

I just got back from a 52 minute walk/run. My goal is to do a 5k in March, and I'm getting back to training. So after a 11:30 warm up walk, I did intervals of running 4 minutes and walking 1 minute. Today was my "long" run, and I'll work on sh... Read more
The last comeback
Tuesday, February 03, 2015      0 comments

I have had a long time relationship with weight loss. When we're getting along everything is great. The thing is, when it's at its best, the end result is that I've lost the weight, and that relationship is over. You know, no more need for "w... Read more
Gotta get to that 10% goal!!
Wednesday, February 01, 2012      4 comments

This week, I'm purely focused on getting to a loss of 10% of my body weight. To get there, I need to lose 2.6 pounds. I really want to lose 3.6 so that I have an overall loss of 20 pounds AND I hit my 10%. I know that it's greater than the presc... Read more
Changes for 2012

I've always been a big believer in resolutions. The last "radical" resolution that I made was in 2007 when I resolved to learn Spanish. This turned into a four-year undertaking, but it was definitely successful. While I wouldn't describe myself ... Read more
Track, don't panic!
Tuesday, February 16, 2010      2 comments

I posted this on one of my team message boards, and it felt like it was good for my blog so... Speaking of the panic, my son and I went to a local restaurant and I ordered a bbq chicken wrap. When it arrived, I noticed that the chicken was ... Read more
Not doing this myself!
Sunday, November 01, 2009      2 comments

In church this morning, part of the sermon was about how we can't change our lives ourselves, so I'm going to pray to have God's help in sustaining this lifestyle change so that I can end this up and down weight battle for once and for all. ... Read more
Wow at where I am...
Saturday, September 05, 2009      2 comments

So I was reviewing my sparkpage and I was particularly interested in the part where I used to login my weight at the end of each month. What I realized is that I've lost a LOT of the progress that I had made, and I hadn't even realized it. I got... Read more

So... I feel the most "normal" that I have felt in quite some time related to my weight. I'm not at my quote-unquote "ideal" weight, but I feel like I'm not stressing over it. I do still workout regularly, but I'm accepting the limits of my day ... Read more
What do I believe? And the foot saga only continues if I let it...
Saturday, May 09, 2009      3 comments

I experienced the rare moment of being in tears this week. I don't like to cry. And I think I did it twice. The first was related to the difficulties of parenting. The second was the never-ending foot saga. After eleven years of complainin... Read more
Time for new pics...
Tuesday, January 06, 2009      4 comments

I love my profile pic, but if I must be honest, it's got less pounds than I do. Usually it's the other way around right? So this is the new year. I think that I need to get back to taking a picture every month to see where I am. Good thing... Read more
Still here...
Sunday, November 09, 2008      2 comments

I find it hard to eat like a "normal" person (whatever that is). Instead, I'm either gaining (bingeing) or losing weight. Well... in the interim, let's switch this back to losing mode. Setting a short term goal to lose 10 pounds by Christ... Read more
