After THREE years on a plateau, I am declining!
Friday, March 12, 2021      4 comments

After spending nearly 3 years at a “plateau” (LOL), I finally figured things out, and have started to lose some weight. Today, March 12, 2021 I have a reached a new low weight since joining SP. The BIG change that I made was limiting my sugar ... Read more
Doing it the "correct" way can be so hard - mentally
Friday, January 12, 2018      7 comments

After joining SP in 5/2017, I spent the last 8 months of 2017 learning from SP and its members. Never before had I consistently stayed mindful of my health and diet for such a long period of time. I knew SP was changing me. I was so excited f... Read more

My mind has been worried about "will" it be different this time. I see so many people re-starting with the first of the year. I am in that group....... once again, and the data says something like 85% will fail by February. However; as I p... Read more

I joined Spark around June 1, 2017. At the time, I was spiraling out of control with binge eating. I had recently put on an additional 10 pounds on top of the 40 that I had been "trying" to lose for the past 12 years. With the help of SP, I w... Read more
Day 20
Sunday, September 24, 2017      6 comments

I am at a friend's for a week helping her with a move. I brought along some of my important food that keeps me balanced. I have had some "treats", but I have kept the quantity small. I am at a new low weight, and I do not want to return home ... Read more
Day 18
Friday, September 22, 2017      4 comments

I am so glad that I am doing this personal 100 day challenge as it has kept me focused. I have not had 18 perfect days as a minor injury slowed my exercise, and my food choices - although within my calorie range - could have been better. Howev... Read more

Day 11 of challenge
Friday, September 15, 2017      3 comments

I went out of town on day 9 and got back during the early evening of Day 10. My food choices were NOT good, but I did track all my food and my calorie count was fine. I also got my 30 minutes of walking in each day, and I drank my water. I ha... Read more
Day 8
Tuesday, September 12, 2017      2 comments

Wow! What a difference with a little less belly when doing physical labor or really anything. Did a variety of jobs around the house today, and was astutely aware of a much easier time doing work on the ground from a standing position. Talk a... Read more
Day 7
Monday, September 11, 2017      5 comments

Met my 4 daily goals today. In addition, I put about 2 hours of physical labor in around the house by chainsawing and hauling all the branches. I tried to take the same approach I am using with my weight progress - slow and steady - just make ... Read more
Day 6 of 100
Sunday, September 10, 2017      3 comments

How ironic! I did not feel like working out today, and it weren't for SP factors I am not sure I would have gotten in the gym. Now, my hour is done, and I feel awesome. And as it turns out, I felt the strongest that I have on the treadmill an... Read more
Day 5 of my 100 day challenge
Saturday, September 09, 2017      1 comments

I had an unexpected and unavoidable hiccup in my day, but I still believe that I can count it as a success. I live about 5 hours from my dad. I was to be in his area today, so he asked me out for lunch for my birthday. I planned my lunch and ... Read more
Day 4 of 100

Keeping it short as it is late, but Day 4 was a success. Brought my dinner on the road with me, so I had the food I needed. Stopped and got my walk in, and had LOTS of water today.... Read more
Day 3 of 100
Thursday, September 07, 2017      1 comments

Day 3 was a success. It was a hungry day, but I made it through. I was hungry shortly after eating my meals today, so I did not wait long in between meals. I also added ----- hold on--- a plum--- to help me through, and some extra water. ... Read more
Day 2 of 100
Wednesday, September 06, 2017      3 comments

As far as the hour workout, day 2 was already easier than day 1 was. Getting my 8 glasses of water in was not a problem, and I never even considered having a soda. Wow! What a change that is. It has taken time, but I rarely drink soda anymor... Read more
