to get off track . I didn't track my food for two days and found myself dipping into the bag of Hershey's kisses, eating a couple of cookies, and probably gained back the little bit of weight I had lost. I'm not a person who can give myself a break, day off, whatever. I have to be on the program every minute of the day. I am so organized and self-reliant in so many ways, but not when it comes to weight loss. So today is a new day. I've already tracked my breakfast and thinking about a healthy choice for lunch. We are going to a rock n' roll show at 5:30 so will have dinner before I go and then a snack later when I get home. I can do this.

Yup...here I am, back in the saddle again. I've been on this journey for years, it seems. I fall, but keep getting back up. The spur in my behind this time was when my doctor wanted to put me on another diabetic medication along with the one I'm already on. I refused. My numbers aren't horrible, but need to come down. I know with consistent dieting they will do that, so.....
The past week and a half have been good. I've stuck to the plan, met with the diabetic nutritionist, and use Spark daily to track my food. I've joined a couple new groups who are very supportive, my age, and can relate to women in their senior years. It seems like a good fit.
My third novel has just been published so I'm very excited about that. Writing is such a wonderful hobby.
I will be back in a week and let you all know how I'm doing. Hope you all have a great week, keep tracking and moving, and I'll check in on you.

Happy Mother's Day tomorrow to all of you who are mothers, whether you've given birth, adopted, taken care of a child in need, and all who are mother's to the four-legged babies in the world. I hope each and every one of you have a beautiful day.
I did a lousy job with tracking the past couple of weeks, so need to jump back on the wagon and get my nose to the grind stone. Fortunately, I haven't gained a pound but have stayed the same for the past 3-4 weeks. I'm pretty sure if I would start tracking again, I would see a loss. Seems to work for me, so why don't I just do it.
I've been spending a lot of time writing as I hope to publish no later than early September. Only a few more chapters to go, but then the editing begins which is really the hard part.
I'll be on vacation the whole month of June traveling to Maine, down to VA, and a 2-3 day visit along the Blue Ridge Parkway before heading back to Florida. This is the first year we haven't had our dog, so we will come and go at will since we don't have to worry about him.
Hope you've all had a good week and you've seen a bit of a loss. Take care and have a happy weekend.

I seem to be at a road block with my weight. Only .6 down this week, so just about the same as the last three weeks. I've been slacking off on tracking my food and I think that plays a major part in my weight loss. So, starting today I will track again, every morsel of food that goes in my mouth.
This was a good week as far as getting in the pool. Weather was cooperative. I usually go to the pool around three in the afternoon and stay until five or five-thirty. At least one hour of the pool time I am moving constantly. My muscles feel it the next day so I know I'm doing something right.
Hope you all had a good week and that next week will be even better. Wishing you a happy weekend.
