Hey Spark friends! I have missed you and seeing how you are doing on this healthy living adventure! Both eye surgeries are complete now - the second one went much better than the first and THAT is a tremendous relief! I went back to the g... Read more

I HAD MY FIRST EYE SURGERY AND I AM HAVING SOME COMPLICATIONS. I AM NOT ABLE TO SEE THE FOOD TRACKER, NUTRITION TRACKER, OR FRIEND FEED WELL ENOUGH TO MAKE ENTRIES. I AM STILL WATCHING MY CALORIES AND WILL BE BACK WALKING AND IN THE POOL AS SO... Read more

I am finding the task of weighing/measuring and logging EVERY morsel quite tedious. Don't get me wrong, I think that recording every morsel (and staying between 1100 - 1200 calories 99% of the time) has been a major component to the successful ... Read more

I haven't done the resolutions thing for several years and I like it that way. I do see a lot of benefit in setting some long-term goals though. For me, it's like a compass to keep me going in the right direction...not a measure of my worth if... Read more

Like many of you, I started my healthy living journey as a result of several 'events' over a course of time that finally added up to...enough is enough! One of my 'events' was being invited to swim at a friend's house this past May. It w... Read more
First *B*I*G* goal of 10%...done!

The first BIG goal that I set for myself was to lose 10% of my weight - or 24.25 pounds. I lost 2.5 pounds this week...1/4 more than what was needed to meet this goal. My incentive/reward for this goal is a $50 shopping spree at my favorite qu... Read more
My Cholesterol level! I had no idea!

Even at my heaviest and unhealthiest, I still kept loose tabs on my blood pressure and blood sugar. They were always well within normal limits...a relatively healthy obese person, I suppose. I knew that I needed to check my cholesterol and mad... Read more

I saw these questions on another blog and thought it would be a good thing to add to mine. Some of the questions have stirred up some memories and emotions that I have spent time writing about in the Journal on the Calendar tab. I feel it's im... Read more

Until now I have remained a bit anonymous on the site. My user name doesn't really say that much about me other than I am obese. (I mean really...how tall would you have to be for your goal weight to be 242?) My message board signature doesn'... Read more

Okay, so I am on my third week of this new way of living: - I Spark through out the day. - I'm taking time to plan and track my foods. - I'm going to bed a bit earlier so that I get 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night. - I have a pla... Read more

She repeated, "You're a slacker, you could've done better on your eating, and you should've been more active than just 3 days in the pool. You'll never get that weight off!" Why did I get this chastisement? I weighed in and only lost 1.5 ... Read more
