much, much too long

Sunday, October 18, 2009

Well here I am again, many milestones have passed in the past year. Numero uno, I turned 70. Enough said on that. But, along with the age growth, has been the waist growth. I've put on almost all that I lost. Even my husband remarked on that this morning. Gotta luv that!! I've had a cough for almost a month that is driving me insane. Work has been crazy, and I can number several excuses, but none are as good as I just love to eat. I need to get going once again, and hope that this time, I'll do it and stick to it. No one but me can make the changes that I need to make. So here we go, let's do it this time.
Thanks for listening.

Yes, I've been missing in action for too long. Had a Drs. appt last week and found that I had gained 6 lbs since March. At that rate, I'll be up to my previous high weight. So here I am, more determined than ever. I need to lose these extra pounds, before I become so heavy that the chairs won't hold me anymore.
I've had a good day so far today, I've walked, tracked and drunk. Now I 'm writing all this down, so that it's on paper for all who care about me to see. I'll do my best to suceed this time. I plan on using my treadmill every day for 1/2 hour. I don't care if I put on miles or not, just the fact that I'm using it, and working up a sweat is enough for me. Ohh, how I hate to sweat, but if it works and I know that it does, I'll do it for me and for Jo.
Thanks for listening.

    Edie -
Good attitude about staying accountable. I don't log my foods on here too much - I am always crunched for time - but I keep a small notebook in my purse and log it in there.
Blessings and smiles!

Third attempt at posting new blog

Sunday, May 25, 2008

I'm trying this again for the 4th time. I'm back. Please don't kick me out. I've been tracking food and water for two days now. This is a record for me lately. I plan on staying with the program until I have settled into my healthy eating role. For some reason I have reverted back to my bad habits. Thankfully no damage to my weight, just to my head. Hopefully I've got it on straight once again. I feel so much better when I'm on a regimen of healthy eating and exercise. I need this in order to function normally.
I found this saying on one of the teams that I was part of for a short time.
"Do not let other people or distractions steal your joy." That is what has been happening to me. I need to keep this wonderful and meaningful statement in mind at all times.
Thank you Sparkpeople for being here for me.

Gone for a month, but I'm back

Sunday, April 27, 2008

Took a month off, unintentionally of course! Something set me off, and for the life of me, can't figure out what it was. Perhaps it was Hubby installing a new sink, (maybe I should join emotional eaters group)don't know what it was, but what a binge I was on. One thing I have learned from it was..I feel mentally low, unhappy, and troubled. While on program, I'm up, feeling great, and happy with myself. When I'm off my self esteen is in the pitts. Last week was the crowning blow. Had a problem with two "good friends" at work. One creating a problem and the other angry with me for listening to it. I do know that the best thing for me right now is to get right back to sparks and start doing my program for me. Not only to get body healthy, but to get mind healthy as well. I hope that all my Spark friends will forgive me for falling so far away from them, but I'm going to give my all to get right back on track.
Thanks for being here Sparkpeople.

relost 3 plus 1

Sunday, March 30, 2008

I'm feeling FINE!!Thanks to a wonderful challenge I geared up and followed through. I upped my water, and my exercise and I relost that 3 pounds I gained back last week, plus lost 1 extra. This week has been wonderful, we celebrated a birthday at work, and I even had a sliver of cake, it was terrific, and would have loved more, but didn't do it!! I've been busy with my cross stitching, brushing the dogs, and working out. Being back to work this week, was a big help to me as I didn't have time to nibble. I'm safe in my routine at work, don't do so well when I don't have a routine to follow. That will come with practice, and I plan to practice constantly next week when I have 4 days off.
Thank you Cheryl wherever you are.
