Motivation behind 60 lbs lost
Thursday, January 24, 2019      4 comments

I have been up and down for 11 years. Finally I’m sticking with it with really success - how is that? 1) LEARNING - I had years to try and fail so that I learned the food myths I had learned growing up. Without that failure I wouldn’t have le... Read more

Baffle my expectations. After hovering around 190, step on scale today to 188. 2 lbs. suddenly down - bam 💥 and right back on target for the old slope of weight loss. A gift I take with gratitude. Tried on those jeans again. Thighs aren... Read more

I thought I was an original creator of this, but afterwards I looked it up on the web and nope, it’s been done before. Mine was super simple. It also lacks the sour cream of other recipes that would zoom up calories. Chop up a head of cabbage ... Read more
Gain more than food weighs?
Sunday, January 20, 2019      0 comments

It is such a basic question, yet I wonder how many Sparkers really get this question and what it means for your weight loss journey. Can you gain more weight that a food weighs? So if you eat a pound of chocolate do you gain 1 pound? Or less ... Read more
19 days late made the goal
Saturday, January 19, 2019      6 comments

So what. It took me 19 more days, yet I still made it to 190. Only 22 pounds to go to no longer be obese. Just staying under 200 feels very good. Very close to being 4 pants sizes down. The new pants fit easily over my thighs but the belly s... Read more
Pride of a pound

Down 1 more. Still one away from my 190 Jan 1 goal. But I reviewed the last 30 days and I have lost 4 pounds in that time - exactly how it is suppose to happen a pound a week. I think I need to adjust my thinking that the slope of losing may n... Read more
Sticking to it

I only had 3 more pounds to make it to my 190 goal by Jan 1. So close. Now we are into January and I sit at 192. Only 1 pound off. So easy to get discouraged, disappointed, doubtful about getting there. Positive statements: I didn’t gain I ... Read more

Today dropped down to 194. (54 lbs bye bye) I usually wait three day to mark progress as bodies tend to bump up and down. Yet, this time I’m rushing forward as I had it in my mind to get to 190 by January 1. Today’s scale gives hope to that g... Read more
Managing the winter
Saturday, December 08, 2018      4 comments

Every year I make progress until the end of October - then it gets cold, dark and there are the winter holidays of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I planned this year and got myself a seasonal job that keeps me on my feet and moving. I ... Read more

A few days ago I blogged that I was slipping of goals. Today I am 2 pounds down (2 more to get back to where I was) and have made progress getting back on track. Just being aware to get more sleep and to make cognitive choices on food. Surpris... Read more
Messing up confessions
Wednesday, October 17, 2018      3 comments

So right now on the edge of missing goals. Not one thing rather drifting on many points. Sitting around more, staying up later, not staying hydrated, more on the go fast food meals and some out and out bad choices. But biggest problem is not b... Read more

Most days I have adapted to my lower calorie range and do fine. But there are crazy driven days where my brain gets locked on a food that it wants. Yesterday it was pizza 🍕. I had been on track all day, but by afternoon I was going online an... Read more
