I'm at work. There are donuts in the break room. I'm not eating them. This is big for me. Munching on the bag of raw carrots I brought for snack. I'd like to say I'm really going to do it this time, but I'm too old to be that arrogant ever agai... Read more
Day 2 (Plus 6 years or so)

It's really pretty embarrassing to me that I started on SparkPeople in 2008, and I still weigh about the same as I did back then. Well, technically not "still." It's really "again." I've lost the same 25 pounds and gained it back more times than... Read more
Back Again

I think I read somewhere that when people quit smoking, they have to try several times before they finally succeed. I think it's the same way with losing weight. Although it's a lot harder. With smoking you only have to quit one thing. To really... Read more

Today was 1/14, and so was my weight. 114. In kilograms. You do the math. Actually, that's a substantial reduction from what it was at the first of the year. I've lost over 8 pounds in 2 weeks. Not fantastic, but good enough. My husband and I st... Read more

om Haven't cheated on myself since the first of the year. Finally figured out that's what I was doing. Not cheating on a diet. Cheating on myself.... Read more

I can't believe that it's been 3 months since I last posted here. I've made some changes this week, and I want to share them with the many Sparkfriends who have supported me through all my ups and downs over the years. I've started a new blog th... Read more
Oh well. . .

I went over my calories today, but only by about 200, but at least I'm still tracking. So that's good, right? I have been trying to do a minimum of 50 crunches/ sit-ups/ crunch twists, while on my stability ball every day, and so far I've been ... Read more
Long time, no see

I can't believe I haven't posted since July! I've actually been pretty good about tracking my food. I don't have a scale anymore, so I didn't know for sure how much I lost, but I stopped in at the doctor just to check, and I was down 12 pounds. ... Read more
Maybe it's not so bad. . . .

I've been tracking more consistently than I ever have in the 4 years that I've been on and off SP. Most days I go over, but not by too much. I'm still eating much less than I would be if I weren't tracking. Today I was only about 100 calories ov... Read more
So Dang Hard
Thursday, July 19, 2012      2 comments

I'm trying to stay between 1200 and 1550. But today I was 300 calories over that. It's so dang frustrating. I am tracking everything. I don't want to plan everything I eat in advance, because that just feels too much like a diet to me, and I kno... Read more
Kinda proud, kinda bummed

I'm bummed that I haven't been blogging more consistently here. It actually hasn't been avoidance, like it usually is. Lately, I've just been forgetful. I have been tracking and staying pretty close to my numbers consistently, although one day I... Read more
Not sure how to count the days. . . .

OK, so I tracked all my food yesterday and today and still stayed within my ranges or very close. I've been sucky about blogging because I've been so busy and so tired. I have been taking care of my friend's 3 grandchildren a lot, plus my kid--... Read more
Good News/Bad News
Friday, July 06, 2012      4 comments

The good news is that I tracked all my food and stayed within all my limits again today (Thursday--I'm posting at 1AM). That's a 3-day streak. Yay! The bad news is that I just learned that it might be pointless. Read the following article, and b... Read more

I ran out of time to blog yesterday, but I tracked everything yesterday and today, and I stayed within my limits BOTH DAYS!!!!!!!!!! My parents had a 4th of July cookout today. They grilled hot dogs and turkey burgers (but we ate in the air cond... Read more
Still going over
Monday, July 02, 2012      3 comments

Well, back at home with power. No big excuses today, but I still went about 150 cals over my limit. Way over my fat and under my protein. I am so frustrated with myself. I think it may be time to start planning my meals in advance like a big gir... Read more
