Finally I'm not whining.

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

I seem to be in much better spirits -- I just rescued a dog and now I have company on my walks, WooHoo.
I've been sticking to the program and I'm proud of that but now that I have Bagel (the Beagle) to walk with me, I'm really encouraged. As he gets older, I'm going to have step it up and move from walking to jogging -- someday I might run.

Having Bagel will definitely keep me on the right path -- and I'd hate to let him down when he brings me his leash.

Less Flaky?

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Well, I haven't managed to check in, but after a family vacation and dreaded birthday, I'm back on track and back at the weight I started at.

I am going to keep the same goals -- no sugar, consistent workouts, water and healthy foods -- but I will not allow myself to go crazy if I go off plan -- I'll just get back on plan.

Thanks for all of the support.

This Time I'll Make It

Thursday, July 31, 2014

I've been haphazard with this site because I just didn't want to face that I flaked out on my weight loss goals after my loss (which at least I've maintained 75# lost.)

I'm going to be hitting a big age mark next week and I want to be at my goal by Thanksgiving and, hopefully, publishing this blog will keep me motivated. I know when I'm not on plan that I tend to avoid the Spark People site.

My goals are to cut out sugar, hold myself accountable for my plan and check in at least three times a week on Spark People to keep me honest.

Thanks for the encouragement from all of the wonderful people on this site.

I'm in Trouble -- with a capital "T."

Sunday, January 26, 2014

I can't believe I've let myself down again and have gained weight. I'm really going to have to restore my sense of discipline and keep tracking.
I am going to commit to this today -- not starting on Monday. I will make it back down and continue on to my goal weight and I will succeed.
I know I can do it. emoticon

    No worries!! Try looking at this temporary weight gain ( I say temporary cuz you obviously care and that alone will drive you to succeed) as not just a numbers thing...I know whenever I have gained weight back it's almost 90% stress related.

You are in charge of you and sometimes when it comes to our bodies it's almost like saying no to a child....repeat, repeat, repeat and eventually no means no! lol

Best wishes to you on your journey! You got this! =D emoticon

    We all faulter at times, the trick is to do what you are doing, just GET BACK on track. Be determined to stick to it. And most of all BELIEVE in yourself and your goal.
You are so right YOU CAN AND WILL DO IT!!!!!

Smiles and Hugs

Six Weeks Later -- OH, NO!!

Friday, October 11, 2013



emoticon emoticon I came back with good intentions and everything in my world has conspired against me making myself a priority and getting back on the program.
Today, October 11, is my turnaround day and I will make every attempt to check in and work the program.

Thanks for all the support I got for my failed comeback -- I will show you that I deserved it by sticking with it -- no matter what.
