I accept that. We spent our vacation time last week with my family and our extended family camping. We went boating, played games, and toured the Amish countryside, basically having a lot of fun. But along with all that fun came tons of food. Most of which was not of the healthy kind. First of all the highlight of the ca...

I did eat a few more calories then what I would like to have done today…the higher side of my limit. But I know I will work it off. I am seeing that this has become a journey that I can handle. At least for now. I am going to plan my eating a bit more carefully tomorrow and try to watch how much I consume of any one thing, even if it is a healthy item. I went to the grocery store and tried to stock up on some healthy items. I walked today and w... Wed, 24 Jul 2013 19:50:44 EST Day 2 of Staying on Track... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5431024 Hey hey, 2 days down and still on track. Might not sound like a lot to you all, but to me it's maintaining that one day at a time plan of mine and that is awesome! I am sitting here watching Extreme Weight loss Edition on ABC and wondering why am I sitting? So after this blog post I am up and at 'em. Get that walk in and maybe some strength exercises too. You know there is no excuse for laziness, even if you can't walk far or fast just walk! Or whatever, just move. That is my goal for ...

I was faltering and not putting in the work I knew I should for about the last moth of being there and felt like I needed to find my inner strength before I continued with the site. Well as it usually goes, when I stop doing a program I end up stopping completely. I use it as an excuse to eat. That I did, EAT! So I have pu... Mon, 22 Jul 2013 20:56:21 EST Trying Again... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5426560 I have been fighting this battle of weight loss for many years. I have lost and gained and lost and gained again and again. I need to get to a point where I am healthy and where I can maintain a weight that makes me feel good. I will get there. I am sure of that. I take one day at a time. I also have osteoarthritis and it makes exercise painful sometimes. So slow and steady is what I need. Walking is a safe method of exercise for me. I also need to watch my eating and snacking especi... Fri, 19 Jul 2013 14:32:08 EST
