That word...One.... To see the number on the scale start with a "1" instead of the dreaded "2." I've seen the "2" for so long now. More than a decade has passed since I have seen the number begin with a "1." To be honest, I didn't believe the ... Read more

Just a quick entry for those of you looking to buy clothes that fit you better but don't break the bank while you are losing weight. I found this great website called Threadup.com. You can buy quality items (barely used) at a great price. You... Read more

Wednesday, April 09, 2014      5 comments

I started my Optifast program January 31st this year. Luckily, I didn't have to do much travelling for work (or pleasure for that matter), but this week I had to take a trip to Tulsa with a group of 20+ co-workers. I am so amazed at how much f... Read more
Strength Training does the Trick
Thursday, March 20, 2014      1 comments

On advise from from Tanya (in charge of our OPTIFAST program), she instructed me to do less cardio. For years I really thought that I needed to do more cardio to really burn those calories. Tanya told me to stop. She limited me to just 20-30 ... Read more
Too much exercise?
Friday, March 07, 2014      7 comments

Not my best week. I had a 1.2 lb weight loss on Optifast this week. While I know that "any" weight loss is good weight loss, it leaves me a bit defeated (and I know that the scale is not my only measurement for success...it still sucks). Turns... Read more
Personal Responsibility and Portion Control
Sunday, February 23, 2014      1 comments

At my last Optifast meeting, the subject of personal responsibility came up. This really got me thinking about portion control for some reason. Actually, being on this Optifast plan and eating such small measured meals, it's hard not to think ab... Read more

I've been faithfully sticking to the Optifast program and exercising almost every day for an hour at a time. Low and behold - it works! I'm down 10 lbs in 2 weeks. I'm down inches too. While I'm so happy to see results, I have a tendency to ... Read more

I'm down 4.4 lbs since I started Optifast last Friday. All I can say about it is.... WHOOOOOOOO YEAHHHHHHHHH! I'm not having any hunger pains. I actually have more time to exercise because I'm not cooking (thanks to my hubby who is not letti... Read more
Day 3 Optifast
Sunday, February 02, 2014      3 comments

I'm on day 3 of the Optifast 300 plan. I also attended my first meeting this week. I feel pretty good for someone who is only consuming about 830 calories a day. I've also lost 3 lbs in 3 days. Pretty amazing! My guess is that much of it is wate... Read more

Again and Again

As much as I love what SparkPeople has to offer, I feel like when I "come back" to it, I'm a little sad. I failed. I put the weight back on. Why can't I do this? Again and again. So frustrating. I look back at my previous blogs, I look back... Read more

I haven't been on Spark for a couple of weeks now. I had been doing Spark and low carb since early January. In the beginning, I dropped weight quickly, then it stalled. Then I seemed to lose a pound here and a pound there, but painfully slow.... Read more

Just a quick pat on the back for me today. I deal with a lot of sales people on a daily basis.... and they always try to feed me. So a really tall, skinny, pretty sales rep brought in two boxes of Dunkin Donuts today. As I'm talking with her ... Read more
Water Water Everywhere
Saturday, February 23, 2013      2 comments

So I was reading another person's blog and I was amazed at how much water she drinks on a daily basis (100 oz). I thought I was doing well with 64 oz. a day. So yesterday I drank up (Didn't hit 100, but I got to 90 oz). I stepped on the scale... Read more
