I am committed to making changes in my life. My past experience tells me that if I implement the changes slowly then I am more likely to be successful and the changes are more likely to stick. I have always heard that it takes 30-60 days t... Read more
Oh the Places I Could Have Gone
Tuesday, June 29, 2010      2 comments

Oh the places I could have gone! I have spent a lot of time lately reading blogs and looking at SparkPages. There is so much wisdom to be gained from them. So much inspiration to be had. So many reasons for kicking myself in the rear for... Read more

So I have in my possession The Spark and it has rocked my world. I cannot pinpoint what it is about the book that has inspired me as in many ways it is a repackaging of information I have always been able to access. The Spark has completely chan... Read more

This year will be my year. In 2010 I will become thin. The obvious question is: what makes you think this year will be any different than any other year? Here's why: I have a fool proof plan. My BFF whom I have never met in rea... Read more

Was editing my page to give a bit more info about me. Saved the info and felt good about finally being honest. Am thinking taking this public might be cathartic along the lines of "My name is Diana and I am a............" I am willing to ... Read more

I always think of Charlotte's Web when I hear the word "radiant" and quickly thereafter think "some pig". This causes the compliment of "you look radiant" to fall flat. I am a whopping 3 days into my quest for health and well being. I ha... Read more
What's done is done - look to the future
Tuesday, December 01, 2009      3 comments

I need to leave my prior weight loss efforts in the past. I need to look forward to what I am going to do rather than focusing on past failures and thinking of what I coulda, shoulda, woulda done differently. Similarly I am going to leave my p... Read more
Today's Advice: (1) Ignore Booty calls, and (2) Do NOT stop at the Costco Food Court
Tuesday, October 20, 2009      6 comments

Pirate Booty that is. Any other type of booty call is a thing of the past. The stuff is wicked dangerous. Buy it at costco where you get two giant bags (and for a limited time $2.00) off and that equals danger. The only small comfort i... Read more
I can't just stick my head in the sand.
Friday, October 16, 2009      4 comments

Sigh....... I so just want to stick my head in the sand and ignore the past week. This whole getting healthy thing is such a roller coaster. I go from being determined, to being resolved, to really not caring, to being frustrated, and the... Read more
It took me 7300 days to get here - it's gonna take a while to fix things.

This topic is a spin off from a blog that one of my best girlfriends wrote. She was discussing how programmed we are to do/think certain things. It made me think about how I have been doing not the best things without even giving second though... Read more
I can't be as bad as I used to be and that is not fair.
Monday, October 12, 2009      5 comments

So I have had a fun few days which pretty much means the scale will be up on Friday. I am resigned to this so am just going to make things better from here on out and lay a good foundation for next week. The real drag is that while I have ... Read more
The week from h-e-l-l continues and providence intervenes.
Wednesday, October 07, 2009      4 comments

This week was off to a rough start and frankly has only gotten more rocky as the days have worn on. Before I go further I have to report that I am ECSTATIC that my boss relented and has decided to let me have Friday off after all. Woo hoo!... Read more
I am in a rotten mood and I can't stand Billy Ray Cyrus.

Today started out very well. Fast forward 4 hours and I am feeling pissy and rebellious. Partially I am having a pity party in that I am not going to be able to take Friday off like I had planned. Now of course if I had let my boss kn... Read more
This week was a smashing success, if I do say so myself.
Friday, October 02, 2009      2 comments

Wow! I have been flying high for over a week. I feel good, the scale is down, and I am focused and optimistic. This could get addicting! I don't want to say it out loud because I don't want to jinx anything but after 4 weeks of struggl... Read more
Confession: I do not actually know EVERYTHING about nutrition and health
Wednesday, September 30, 2009      4 comments

One would not think that I, weighing in at 214, would be an expert on nutrition and health. However, being a bit delusional, I have professed since I was about 24 that I knew everything about the subject but that I just didn't put my knowledge ... Read more
