BLC 25 SMART Goals
Sunday, May 04, 2014      7 comments

I've actually really been struggling with these. I do much better when I don't have a "have-to" in terms of weight. I put a "have-to" for myself in terms of hitting Onederland before my German daughter arrives on July 6th, and the result was..... Read more

Sisters

“I don't think it was a big deal. I always thought it was just sister stuff,” this was the summation from my brother-in-law about a rift in my relationship with my now-dead sister – a rift that had haunted me for 20 years. And yes, most o... Read more
Goals Redux

So, I tried Paul McKenna's I Can Make You Thin. I like the concept tremendously, and I can see how it would work for many people, and how it has worked for people I know ... Read more

So, the BLC is set to start again on the 15th. The doors will "open" some time around the 8th/9th and rampant enthusiasm will once more abound. I've been spending time on the "newbie threads" so I've already been soaking up that pre-round ... Read more

For all my Sparkfriends who love a challenge (and who doesn't love a challenge?), have I got a challenge for you! The bad news - this is why I've dropped off the face of the earth for some of you. ... Read more
Gratitude - the best way to turn around attitude
Thursday, December 26, 2013      14 comments

So, yesterday was not a picture perfect Christmas. There were all sorts of reasons for this - much having to do with the complexities that are family. There was some drama, some sorrow, some grieving, etc. I didn't make healthy choi... Read more
BLC 23 Goals
Thursday, September 19, 2013      14 comments

Today's challenge on Sparkcoach was to talk about how different I am now from when I started sparkpeople or sparkcoach, etc. I'm going to do that one tomorrow. The gates of the BLC opened for the first time last night. As a co-cappy for a... Read more

Not to sound like a broken record, but seriously - this is AWESOME. I lost 20 lbs. between the registration period and the actual challenge - so 16 weeks, but for me that's an INCREDIBLE loss - I gained such perseverance and developed great... Read more

Excuses!
Sunday, July 28, 2013      5 comments

Today's spark coach challenge is writing about excuses. Two excuses that have sabotaged my weight loss in the past are: 1. My rheumatological condition is making me hurt too much to do my exercise. 2. Going "off program" one day and not ... Read more
Goals, goals, goals, goals, goals, goals, goals
Friday, July 19, 2013      10 comments

So today my "challenge" from spark coach is to share my goals with "someone". Now, I've done this before. Will do this again. Will do this the rest of my life, probably. Because my goals keep changing. Goals, for me, may be the most pow... Read more
