New Goal After 50 Pound Loss - Body Acceptance
Wednesday, July 24, 2019      8 comments

I've been learning so much about health and fitness lately. It's like a lightbulb went off in my head. I want to put more focus on maintaining the weight I've already lost instead of just being on the hunt to lose more. The whole weight lo... Read more

I know we shouldn't pay too much attention to numbers on a scale, but I've been waiting to get into the 170's for at least 5 weeks. I was thisclose way back in mid-December and had a goal to get there by December 31st. And then I had a few... Read more
Shopping trip - From size 20 wide to 12 regular

JC Penney's had a huge sale today so I decided to get 2 pairs of pants. My normal 20W pants are now SO baggy after losing 32 pounds, I was starting to feel embarrassed wearing them. I wasn't going to shop until I lost all the weight since I'm on... Read more

Weight and Job Search
Sunday, April 16, 2017      9 comments

I've gone on about 10 job interviews in the last month. I have yet to get one offer, even for jobs I'm overqualified for. The reason this is strange to me is because in the past, when I would get an interview, I usually end up with an offe... Read more

I have a 14 day streak going for logging in at Spark since 10/1/16. I figure if I at least track my food daily, even if I don't eat healthy, I will still be contributing to my ultimate goal. I don't understand why losing weight (and keeping... Read more
Making progress.......very slowly
Tuesday, February 11, 2014      5 comments

I'm feeling pretty good lately. I'm sticking with my plan and eating betwen 1200-1500 cals a day, usually on the lighter part of that range. The weight is coming off very slowly. In fact, I would say PAINFULLY slow. But at least it's eventually ... Read more
Old habits are hard to break!

I went home for a week to take care of some chores. I'm working in another state right now, so I return home every few months. I did "okay" on my food plan the first day....but WOW....the 2nd day I started to eat like a horse. It was almost... Read more
Putting "more of me" into this...
Thursday, February 28, 2013      7 comments

So far, being on Spark isn't really helping. I signed up 6 months ago and haven't made progress. I have met some very nice people so I would never say I regretted doing it. And I have made temporary progress here and there. But I always g... Read more
