Enormous thanks to my team and Cornpicker for the challenge to get more healthy by 11/11/11. All the days, through thick and thicker, SP emails have been there to remind me about healthy choices, exercise, eating less, eating well. Sometimes I w... Read more
The Maine Idea

Back from another sailing adventure in Maine. Hard to be back at work. Sailing beats reality every time. The part I like the best is WORKING instead of just EXERCISING. I loved heaving the ropes and pumping the water and climbing up and down to ... Read more
Great Scale!

Since we have wanted to drop kick our scales most of the time, I am happy to say that I gave mine a pat today! I have wanted to drop into this new decade and out of the one I was in for a while, and I DID! It feels great! I was surprised, becau... Read more

I have a new wonderful reason to get stronger and smaller -- I had a great adventure as guest-crew on the original Maine Windjammer Mercantile!! A gorgeous 80' schooner with really heavy sails that we learned to furl and unfurl and we blasted ar... Read more

I had coffee on a river bank with a friend and we said what a great and beautiful end of summer day it was with blue bright sky and sun and breeze and interesting birds and flowers and we said -- let's go canoeing! She had already worked out in... Read more
It's complicated

Since I have been back onto SP, I have been very thoughtful and careful about my calories in, and about moving more without getting hurt. I go up a little, down a little, but mostly in a down direction, which is great. I feel healthier by far an... Read more

I saw a great black dress on the SP Zappos.com ad and now I'm able to wear it! It is a comfortable wrap in a stretchy soft knit with cool short sleeves for this heat and I feel great in it. Thank you, again, SP! even your ads are great! ... Read more

It matters only where you need to go, not where you used to be. My red SP goal line would have had me at my goal weight this month, if I hadn't taken a 90 degree detour in the winter and spring. Frustrating to imagine being healthy, instead ... Read more

I am NOT looking forward to going back to work. I am working too hard and I know it. I have a bag of healthy cereals there and will walk as fast as I can to and from the parking lot, but basically work means sitting and thinking. Both are HARD! ... Read more
Loving SP on V-Day!
Sunday, February 14, 2010      3 comments

Long long time since I wrote here. Lots of stories and excuses. Anxious not to bring other people down when I was force-feeding, and anxious to be back to my weight so I can deserve the icons I had earned before. I looked at the red line today o... Read more
The ever-present Slippery Slope!

I had done really well, getting to where I wanted to be for Turkey Day, and the kids came home and were really happy and praising to see the changes and to be able to enjoy power-walks together. And I kept doing well til the holiday parties bega... Read more

A lady who works near me came up outside and said, "I just have to tell you, You look awesome" !! Of course she meant relative to how I used to look and, unfortunately, she was young but looked pretty round and I couldn't really say, "You, too... Read more

Today I am wearing a gorgeous rich blue velvet straight skirt and stretchy white top with a soft angora-blend sweater and I feel like 4 million bucks!! The sun is shining and people are really noticing the difference in my appearance. The skirt ... Read more
Stunning Day!!

Today I am at the half mark toward my goal and ALSO wore pants to work for the first time EVER, because they fit well and comfortably, one of my initial goals in joining SP, along with decreasing my knee pain which is GONE. Onward and Downward!!... Read more
