I'm in the midst of a battle I thought was over. I even thought I had the patience to wait out a plateau that seemed to go on forever. I don't. I have had to come to grips with my sensitivity to sugar, once again, like I had to reckon with the ... Read more
Movin' on part 2
Saturday, August 21, 2010      4 comments

I moved and I won. The day and the mood did not get me. I overcame it and had a very productive day, and now I'm happy and content. When my last blog was finished I didn't quite know what to do next, so I just closed the computer and got out of ... Read more

I'm feeling a lot of losses right now, and one of them isn't my weight. I know things will pick up again if I just have the patience of a few minutes, hours or days to wait it out. In the meantime I need to pick myself up instead of the food, an... Read more

I thank God for spark and the wonderful things I have learned during my short sojurn along the Spark Pages. About a month ago, around the 4th of July, I started to track my sodium intake along with my meals for the day. It took me about 6 months... Read more

Yesterday I posted my daily food on the Spark Nutrition Tracker. I went back and did it again today, and I'm learning so much already. I've been so on and off these plateaus of mine, that I thought to try something I had never tried before. So n... Read more

As I was commenting on another blog I had a light bulb go on in my own head! THE LIGHT BULB JUST WENT ON was the name of the other blog ! I realized that as I pursued my healthier lifestyle, one of the personal challenges I had made for myself ... Read more
Going forward again
Thursday, June 24, 2010      4 comments

Back in March I was cheerfully passing time on my weight plateau by learning and growing along the way. I think I had a 3 month plateau going at the time. Well, the plateau lasted for another 3 months, and I believe I had a true breakthrough ye... Read more
Today I choose life

It's that time of year again: June, the month of birthdays, mine and my oldest daughter's, and her date of departure from this earth, otherwise known as the day she died, 14 years ago now. There's always the possibility of pity parties, sugar bi... Read more

I post this blog on my 47th day on a sign-in streak. When I remember to sign in each morning I remember what my day is supposed to be about, and take time to make a plan, and ask the Lord what my plan is to be. By signing in and writing, or tak... Read more
Moving Along the Weight loss Way
Saturday, May 08, 2010      2 comments

So I am hopeful that my blessed pause along the weight loss way has ended and the plateau is over. Enough already. I am tired of the scale not moving. But I am not angry or depressed or discouraged because of the delay . It took 15 weeks of si... Read more
