Day 96 -- Not feeling very hungry lately, and that's very unlike me.
Wednesday, October 07, 2009      1 comments

I know this is a good thing for me, that I'm not feeling hungry all the time. The other night I told my husband I should eat an apple to get at least 3 more grams of fiber for the day, but I just didn't feel hungry. His response? "Who are you... Read more
Day 92 -- Another 7 pounds gone!!
Saturday, October 03, 2009      4 comments

Today is/was weigh-in day and I lost another 7 pounds, for a total of 20 since joining SparkPeople. What a wonderful feeling! I really feel firmly planted on the path now. I don't feel like I could get lost at any moment, to carry on the meta... Read more
Day 90 -- Is anyone else feeling a little pressured to go vegetarian?
Thursday, October 01, 2009      4 comments

Is it just me because I'm such a carnivore that I'm being overly sensitive about this? Two out of the three Daily Spark Blogs are about going vegetarian for a day. Well, I have absolutely no interest in this, and would rather move on to other ... Read more
Day 89 -- Addendum
Wednesday, September 30, 2009      0 comments

I just learned an interesting little tidbit about SparkPeople SparkMail. It won't let you send a message with profanity in it. Now I was writing to a very old friend who knows me very well, and it was actually only one bad word (which is prett... Read more

Day 89 -- Progress???
Wednesday, September 30, 2009      3 comments

I ran to the grocery store tonight (Tuesday evening--I'm posting late) to get something for dinner. As we were walking down the frozen foods aisle I caught my reflection in the glass of the coolers...and was pleasantly surprised! Maybe my visi... Read more
Day 87 -- What will I do when all the firewood is in the basement and stacked?
Monday, September 28, 2009      3 comments

This is my physical activity right now, and I'm really enjoying it. If you don't know me, I HATE exercise for the sake of exercise. If the activity has a purpose or it is a form of play, then that is completely different. Taking care of firew... Read more
Day 86 -- A small victory
Sunday, September 27, 2009      2 comments

I was able to put my diamond back on two days ago. I haven't worn it in at least a few months because it was just too hard to get on and off over my knuckle. It will still be a while before I can wear my regular wedding band and anniversary ba... Read more
Day 83 -- A challenge to my commitment
Thursday, September 24, 2009      4 comments

I got some news tonight which upset me. It's not bad news; in fact it's good, but it reaffirms my assertion that life is just not fair. This type of event has triggered emotional eating in the past, and I felt some pull towards the soda tonigh... Read more
Day 74 -- Begin as you mean to go on
Tuesday, September 15, 2009      6 comments

Now, I THINK I am following this adage this time around, but I see a lot of people out here who do not seem to think the same way. To me, it means the difference between a diet and a lifestyle. I still meet a lot of people out here who really ... Read more
Day 66 -- A harsh reality brought me down, but I'm turning my attitude around
Monday, September 07, 2009      5 comments

Yesterday, me, my husband, and our exchange student drove down to Bangor for some shopping. We went to the mall first. While our student was shopping, I kept catching my reflection in some of the mirrors scattered around the store. What I saw... Read more
Day 62 -- Weigh In
Thursday, September 03, 2009      4 comments

What a great way to start the day! I weighed in this morning and was down 9 pounds from last month. I would have been truly happy with 5 (in fact, that's my goal each month), but this was nice reinforcement for what I've been doing. It also r... Read more
Day 55 -- A little sad about letting friends go
Thursday, August 27, 2009      5 comments

Some of my Spark Friends seem to have disappeared. They have not updated their statuses in weeks and have not responded to sparkmails or comments on their pages. I ultimately decided to remove them as friends. I still care. I still hope they... Read more
Day 48 -- Becoming a little anxious about approaching weigh-in
Thursday, August 20, 2009      3 comments

It's still several days off, but I'm beginning to worry about weighing in on September 3rd. I chose to weigh in monthly because I figured I should always show a loss that way. Weighing weekly there is a chance to gain during certain times of t... Read more
Day 47 -- My quirks
Wednesday, August 19, 2009      1 comments

One of my teammates was challenged to create a list of her quirks. I read it and found it very funny and entertaining. She challenged others to continue with the idea. So here's mine. Can't promise it will be funny or entertaining, but I won... Read more
