I think that my rear end has permanently attached itself to the couch. I watched the Bengals-Colts game & some of the Steeler-Miami game & then caught the end of the Browns-Patriots game...I have been ignoring my closet...everything has now relocated to the dining room table, so I must get busy & FINISH my project. I made a decision to have my Hospice gang here on the 18th for a Christmas gathering, so I at least have additional motivation to get my act together. I am on course with my tracking & water & my scale smiled at me this morning...We have some freezing rain predicted for the Dayton, Ohio area, but I hope that many of you have had a sunny, happy, healthy Sunday...Take care...

Slept better, up early...attacked a closet & found all kinds of treasures...haha...I did track my food & my back teeth are floating from all the water I've had, did not get my exercise in...can't really blame it on the weather. My daughter, JM gave me a good CD for walking & of course there's always the great SP videos.. so no excuses. I have been a real couch potato today, watching football games... love it...I should have been a boy. My Dad had three daughters & no sons, but I was his "jock." I will talktoyoulater...Take care...

Today was one of those days when I "gave myself" to a piece of pumpkin pie...it wasn't that I had ten pieces, but it was just that general "oh whatever" one little piece won't hurt...it could have & it was foolish to make such a poor decision. I did not get any exercise in today, but for the most part, I did pretty well with the rest of my food decisions. I did not sleep well last night & had a difficult time getting to sleep, but I am hoping for a better night. we got about 5 in. of snow today so we are all hunkered down, waiting for the sun to shine. I really need to take some time tomorrow & reconnect w/so many of my SP friends. I certainly hope that all of you have a great & safe weekend. Take care...

Tracking food? Ck, drinking water? Ck. exercising? Ck. & of course blogging? Ck. I went to bed last night about 11:00 but woke up feeling a little "sloshy." I know that that is not a word, but that is the best way to describe it...I "sloshed" my way through today, but so far, so good. When I went to Al-Anon a zillion years ago, we were always told & I told many that...You can do just about ANYthing for 24 hrs. & that is how I have decided to win this battle...one step at a time & one day at a time...I feel like I took about ten steps forward when I joined SP, but I took about 9 steps backward in the last year...but hey...the point is, I'm still taking steps FORWARD...I rode my bike 6 miles today & yes, it was COLD...Going out to dinner at Brio's with my Bunco club for a Christmas party this eve. I need to ck. out their menu & I plan to avoid the rolls, drink lots of water & pass on dessert. I know that SP allows me to eat anything that I want (as long as I track it), but for me...during this shaky time of rebooting my focus, I am going to avoid a lot of the "trigger foods." I need to hang in there & breathe deep...Take care, everyone & have a good 24 hrs...one day at a time...

It makes starting over so much harder...Today is MY 2 yr. Anniversary & I am NOT proud to announce that I am only down THREE lousy lbs. I lost 35 lbs. between Dec. 4, 2011 & August 5, 2012 & was SO proud of myself & I felt so much better. I'm not even going to mention the stuff that I will say "interfered" with my focus, but it was not worth it. Quitting is easy, but starting all over again is down right painful. I fell OFF the wagon, yes...but I never Let Go...I am still here...& today, on my anniversary, I am happy to announce that I have tracked my food, rode my bike 4.5 miles, had lots of water & here I am blogging. I was talking to a neighbor today while out on my bike & she asked about my daughter, Jan-Marie. I told her the usual stuff plus the fact that she had lost 100 lbs. in the last two years...& I thought...wow, here I am selling SP, but not working the program...time to stop talking the talk & start walking the walk. Well, y'all know that I could go on & on & on, but I think that I will stop here & get to bed... along with the many valuable tools that SP offers, I also need to take advantage of the fact that I AM retired & I CAN get a decent amt. of sleep every night, so no more of this staying up till 1-2:00 A.M. & sleeping till 10-11:00. Thank you again, & again & again for all the love & support that you, my dear SP friends continue to give to me. Take care, have a good week & God Bless...
