What would I do without a "RESET" button?
Wednesday, July 10, 2013      8 comments

Rather than getting upset at myself for overeating or not being successful in reaching my goals, I think I'm going to flip the coin and focus on the gratitude for getting another chance to try again. Yes, my reset button is being used alot, but... Read more
Scale FOR SALE
Monday, July 08, 2013      2 comments

Actually, not really: I'll give it away instead. But in all fairness, I must first warn you that it is full of disappointments: - inconsistent feedback - random displays (not matching effort user has put in) - inaccurate readings Curr... Read more
Gotta get it together
Sunday, July 07, 2013      2 comments

I'm still inconsistent with my progress on keeping in the calorie range. It seems the most I do is 4 out of 7 days within the range. Worse yet, those days are usually the days I have the structure of my work to keep on track. Soon I will be o... Read more
The Motivation of Spark Points
Saturday, July 06, 2013      3 comments

I find myself logging in everyday, tracking all my food intake and exercise, tracking goals, etc. Now if I only got big bonus points for staying in my calorie range, maybe I'd be doing better???... Read more
Wardrobe Funk
Friday, July 05, 2013      3 comments

I'm in a "wardrobe funk" and have been for years - perhaps decades. I'm not comfortable or satisfied with my body and never was. Back when I was in my late teens/early twenties, I thought I was too heavy and now that is my goal weight. My, ho... Read more
That person is so lucky to be "naturally thin"
Thursday, July 04, 2013      4 comments

That's exactly what I've told myself for years. Anyone who was slim was a result of being built differently than me. I didn't have their genes so I didn't have much chance of being like them. In later years (many of them), I'm realizing th... Read more
Trigger Foods
Wednesday, July 03, 2013      7 comments

What's a "trigger food"? Well, the definition varies from person to person, but to borrow a catch phrase from a popular edible product, I sum it up as "Betchya can't eat just one!" I'm starting to realize that's the case with me and those pre... Read more

Gearing up to do the Spark Solution
Sunday, June 30, 2013      2 comments

The day at the cottage yesterday went well. It makes a big differnce without the underlying tension. And, that was all despite the crappy weather! On the drive there/back, I started to read the Spark Solution. I think I'll have/make some ti... Read more
Cottage Day
Saturday, June 29, 2013      3 comments

Today, I'm going up with my family (hubby and three kids) to visit my parents and brother's family (wife, two kids) for the day. The day should go okay as my sister isn't going to be there. (She's hated me for years and likes showing it. In ... Read more
Fell halfway down the stairs, got up, then threw myself down the rest
Friday, June 28, 2013      6 comments

Yesterday I read a blog post that I really liked and sticks in my mind. This whole "diet"/"lifestyle change"/"lost weight efforts" takes 24 hour vigilence, and I find the days seems to pass as weeks at times. I enjoy food and snacking immens... Read more
SNACK ATTACK!!!!
Thursday, June 27, 2013      1 comments

Yesterday I stayed later at work than usual then went to a short seminar. As a result, I stopped at Costco on my home (about 8pm) to pick up a few items. I had been fighting off the urge to eat (even after I had already eaten). I'm not sur... Read more
"You're fatter than you think"
Wednesday, June 26, 2013      7 comments

That's what the reflection in the building window told me. It caught me by surprise - I thought it was some fat middle-aged woman and looked around me. I was alone. That led me to the only conclusion I could have - and have been denying to m... Read more
Getting into the groove
Tuesday, June 25, 2013      2 comments

Finally, for the last couple of days I've been staying in my calorie range. What's making that possible is stopping the evening snacking, and staying away from after-dinner drinks (AF). Ah, I realize that 2 days of "good behaviour" will not y... Read more
