The time went by way too fast. <BR> I thought the Blue Lions was a good team for me. I liked putting our trackers on line even if I didn't make the best choices it helped me to be more honest. <BR> I didn't lose any weight this round. I am a big stress eater and have been struggling with my weight for quite some time but not giving up. <BR> I know in order to lose weight you have to really want it and I do. I have a real proble... Sun, 7 Dec 2014 05:09:29 EST It's been a good weekend It was so nice having four days off to rest. I really needed it after working 12 days straight in a row. It is very hard to work that many days as you get older. Seven more months and I will retire. I can do it! <BR> I went to my WW Meeting this morning and was down .6 pounds. Thought that was pretty good considering I haven't been eating that healthy and my sleeping schedule is pretty messed up too. I am planning to go to bed early tonight. <BR> Wishing you all a wonderful week. Sun, 16 Nov 2014 22:50:26 EST Things are looking better at work A few weeks ago I wrote a couple of blogs about my boss giving us a hard time at work. One of the Union Reps told us that he was told by the plant Manager to leave us alone. He hasn't bothered us in a couple of weeks so hopefully things will remain calm. <BR> One of my coworkers is retiring and we are having a potluck tomorrow. I decided not to participate in the potluck so I am bringing myself a special lunch. I am having my homemade navy bean and ham soup with veggies along with some st... Wed, 22 Oct 2014 01:39:53 EST Its been a good weekend ; ) Had a good weekend and kept pretty busy yesterday. I went to the swimming pool yesterday and it was so nice just walking in the water and then swimming some laps. Then, of course, the jacuzzi which I absolutely love. <BR> I went to my WW Meeting this morning and was down 2.6 lbs. I have been on track for the last five days which is the best I've done in a long time. I am doing both BLC and the 5% Challenge. Love both teams that I am on and feel I am going to get somewhere this time. <... Sun, 12 Oct 2014 22:35:16 EST Dancing is Fun ; ) Had a great Saturday! However, we had to work but a little extra money is always nice. Then went to a 50th Birthday party for one of my coworkers. I am a sixty year ole woman and haven't gone dancing since I was in my 20's which explains why I am not a very good one. <BR> The main thing is I had a great time and want to take dancing lessons after I retire. I feel so stiff when I dance and I don't know if its because I am so heavy or haven't done it in so many years. <BR> Hope after I los... Sun, 28 Sep 2014 04:08:54 EST BLC Blog Expectations! I am so excited that BLC has started again. I signed up for the Blue Lions Tracker Team. I have a real problem with journaling and I think this is going to help me. My main goal is to journal every bite and hopefully I will get some feedback from my team members. <BR> I plan to be in the chat room daily even if I only have time to write one sentence I plan to check in and stay in contact with my team. I will also be supportive of my team too. <BR> I joined the 24 hour fitness center and p... Sun, 21 Sep 2014 19:40:42 EST
