Thank you FitBit for keeping me on track! Yeah, honest calorie counts and exercise goals and every day thorough check-ins are working. I need to wear a constant reminder on my wrist and an every morning log in to keep me motivated. That is ok ... Read more

I am ashamed that I am back for the 8th consecutive year in a row with no progress. What does that say about me. That I haven't taken myself seriously or given myself the respect I deserve. I have let complacency and apathy take over my healt... Read more

I have been so hungry a couple of times in the last week that it was actually painful. I know 1200 calories should be enough and this isn't a painless process but I have tried to incorporate more protein (within my daily calories) to see if tha... Read more

Is it possible to fall off the wagon for years at a time? Yes definitely possible. I’m at the same weight I started at two years ago and I am ready to start over from scratch again. 1200 calories and keeping it real.... Read more

My personal goal is losing as close to 10 pounds a month as I can. So far so good for June, I have been being moderate in all things. My boss submitted paperwork to increase my pay within my band. Her evaluation was so glowing that I couldn’t... Read more
Sticking with it

So 6 pounds in two weeks was pretty good. I expected to make more progress this week but I know that isn’t realistic for my body. Two pounds a week is really what I’m capable of, so a week of plateau is ok. I was super hungry all week but sta... Read more

This was a pretty decent week for weight loss. I always expect to have a good loss when I come back from ground 0 though. I am trying to focus on feeling happier and more secure right now. I think that working with all PhDs makes me harder o... Read more

I have found that I am not too hungry lately. I am doing well taking the same breakfast, and lunch to work. I bought three boxes of 100 calorie stuff today to help, a bunch of lean cuisines to switch things up. Whenever I talk about the diet,... Read more

I was a little unsettled today because of yesterday’s news of my grandmother. My boss came in to my office to check on how things are going. She praised my performance, and told me she is still trying to push through a raise for me. She told ... Read more

I went to our local greasy spoon with Allen today. He was starving because he worked through his lunch and just wanted to get a hamburger. We have a twenty minute commute from the “city” to our small town, and there is only one restaurant here... Read more

Coming back to spark and being able to check in with friends has really been important to me. One of my spark friends passed away while I was gone, from cancer. This was so sad to see, and reminded me of my mother who also passed away from can... Read more

This ongoing process is a lesson in discipline. Seeing my tracker go from a 14 pound loss achieved 2 months ago, to being set back to a 0 loss is hard, but very real. I am happy to see my fellow Sparkers continue to move forward. You are a gr... Read more

It is May and my last post was shortly before the giant event that I direct every year. Over 1000 people attended, and I did all the supervising, A/R, A/P, coordinating, etc. and so on,(and all on top of my normal duties). After that was my 7 ... Read more
