My scale ended January up 2 pounds so February I refocus ! Yesterday I went to the health food store and got a few things--one which I should not have purchased!!!!! Gluten free macaroons!!! Yes they were yummy but my head is splitting this morning!! Trust me--when you give up sugar never go back because it does hurt!!! <BR> <BR> It is warmer here in Florida today and I will be changing the hoses on my pool filter. I w... Sun, 2 Feb 2014 05:21:47 EST thank you! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5609863 I appreciate the encouragement ladies! I am wondering today if I was just testing myself last weekend??? Maybe it WAS a good thing to get my mindset back on track! <BR> <BR> I do LOVE seeing the scale go down! <BR> <BR> Hugs! Thu, 30 Jan 2014 06:24:55 EST January is almost over! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5608919 I made a mistake last weekend and made myself some tapioca pudding(with sugar) and boy did I have a headache yesterday--nothing would take it away! It was not a bad one but a constant dull ache that I am sure I could have taken away with a bit of sugar to feed the addiction! So here I am Wednesday 1/29 with another lesson learned! <BR> I seriously must stick to my plan with Paleo and organics. <BR> <BR> This is the year I will continue until I make this happen! Just because I lost 10 poun... Wed, 29 Jan 2014 07:58:08 EST End of the year blues! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5575273 I keep a journal for my daily weight loss etc.... I set it up this time last year for a whole year. I turned the page this morning only to see the 12th end of month goal and happy face! Sadly I have gone another year without achieving what i set out to do! <em>46</em> <BR> <BR> Saturday i again set up my journal for almost all of 2014! I will not be sad at the end of 2014! If I only loose 1 pound a week I can loose 52 pounds this year alone--I need to get out of this obese category!! <e... Mon, 30 Dec 2013 05:41:07 EST new puppy too! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=724365 And during all this I rescued a pug baby of 4 months old. Here is her picture her name is TAZ, she is good company for Sasha and I. So how do I get myself out of this funk and back on track--it's a puzzle to me. maybe after the funeral is done. who knows. I try to get moving with the new baby --nothing is quite working???? <BR> <BR> Here is to better months!!! <BR> <BR> Say a prayer! Thu, 30 Aug 2007 13:52:45 EST Bad month! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=723261 This is just a bad month here--I was doing fine till my father went into the hospital and he passed away a week later. I have been into ice cream and junk food to no avail!!! these are my comfort foods and it's better than smoking. The memorial is sept 1st in CAlifornia and I wont be able to travel there either. So I sent flowers and love and sympathy--all I can do! <BR> <BR> hope to get back on-board with the challenge after sept 1st! <BR> Wed, 29 Aug 2007 19:17:47 EST eye exam http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=702503 This is a picture of me and my great-grandson Ethan. <BR> <BR> I have not had to get new glasses(well I haven't gone for an eye exam) in over 5 years. OMG the lenses alone were over $250 and the frame for my new and improved sunglasses were about the same. Thank goodness I used my same frames for the regular ones--whew! And the doctor said they may take some getting used to as the prescription has changed--so I will be more dizzy than normal--lol ! I have never before been told...

Thanks Gloria! <BR> <BR> Hugs Kathleen Thu, 2 Aug 2007 14:26:23 EST frozen yogurt http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=675501 I went grocery shopping today and picked up a little more than my healthy stuff--or maybe not?? I bought some frozen yogurt and divided it into one cup containers for the freezer--they are about 100 calories each and hopefully will help with my ice cream craving. I am very proud that I did not sit and eat the whole thing today--woohoo! <BR> Kathleen Sat, 28 Jul 2007 17:54:55 EST Been good all week! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=673631 love the ounces leading to pounds--will get thru this month with maybe 5 pounds off--how sweet! <BR> <BR> Kathleen Fri, 27 Jul 2007 09:50:01 EST woohoo http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=672438 ok I'll try again--my entry got lost in space--lol I made it past my ice cream problem and stepped on the scale this morning and I am down a little bit more--I like to see even the ounces--I figure if I watch them they will add to pounds --lol I am doing good with portion control and walking every morning with Sasha(if the picture comes thru its my Pug) So missing my cravings yesterday did make a difference in the scale today! lets see that fat drop away--lol <BR> hope everyone is having... Thu, 26 Jul 2007 13:49:41 EST Where is my ice cream--lol http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=669159 Boy am I craving ice cream today--so I had a nectarine and now a big mug of decaf coffee! I hope that cures it--of course if the rain comes back I surely will not go out to the store to get any!!! <BR> Doctors appointment went very well--all the things I was worried about were nothing to worry about and my BP was excellent! I have to make an appointment for a full physical but had to ask how it works with medicare. Now I understand a little better. <BR> I hope everyone is doing well! <BR> ... Tue, 24 Jul 2007 16:50:53 EST Tuesday July 24th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=668197 Well today no walk--I didn't want to get all sweaty before my doctors appointment. Gonna check my pressure and a strange mole and all the bruises my Sasha helps me get by swinging her stuffed toys! Not sure what anything means but will run them by the doc--oh yes--and I have a red circle spot on my tummy--not sure if it was a pimple or a bite of some kind but will have him check it out anyway. better safe than sorry! I hope he notices I have lost some weight--that would be nice! Just a l... Tue, 24 Jul 2007 07:51:29 EST friday 7/20 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=662965 Still doing good--out for my morning walks with Sasha and watching what I eat. I have my brain into this now! trying to get here everyday! I have not played with the menu thing etc...only because Its hard to buy alot of food for just one--so I do the best with things I like and portion them better. I bought frozen yogurt yesterday and put it into 1/2 cup containers in the freezer--so when I crave it--I will get 100 calories and not eat the whole container! <BR> hugs kathleen Fri, 20 Jul 2007 13:21:27 EST question http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=659926 I wonder ----if I am at least 60 pounds overweight and hit 58 this july--do you thing the extra fatty skin will shrink or will I just have saggy skin???? How terrible to think of this and actually ask it--but I just wondered. <BR> <BR> And another question--I have not found a way to add friends--is it a magical thing --lol <BR> <BR> thanks Kathleen in Florida Wed, 18 Jul 2007 18:16:25 EST Still doing good! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=657499 I hope this is not twice posted for today and I think the other note was lost in space--lol I am doing good and eating less and moving a bit more--I see some movement on the scale which is very pleasing and I will keep coming here to get encouragement or just to write how my day has been going. All junk and ice cream is out of the house and I am surviving-lol! If I can keep this up for a year till my next birthday I will be doing good and much thinner! But I will take one day at a time! S... Tue, 17 Jul 2007 11:35:10 EST saturday 7/14 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=652968 well I am keeping to the plan--walking my dog every morning and trying to eat real food --lol! It is a thundery day here today and if it cools I will take Sasha out for a walk later and see if the legs hold up for me. Well the thunder is getting loud--I had better shut this down--oh, by the way, with all that stress I did loose 1 pound this week--so thats a plus for me. Thanks to all of you!! Sat, 14 Jul 2007 13:05:34 EST friday the 13th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=651803 Thank you for giving me a push in the right direction!! I am trying to get here everyday as it does have many things to keep my fingers busy--lol <BR> <BR> I think i figured out how to get a picture up--I guess I will see after I send it--its me and my pug Sasha almost 2 years ago. Funny how I do not have any recent pictures of me huh???? Fri, 13 Jul 2007 15:30:11 EST Ok--I hit bottom! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=650392 The bottom of 1/2 gallon of ice cream---what a rush and let down altogether! I seem to have no will power for my food intake and crave chocolate and ice cream--and with no one to see me do it--how bad is that??? SO I decided it is really time to get my stuff together and get some of this weight off --I am trying to take the same approach as I did for smoking. My problem now is trying not to pick up a bit of yummies when I go to the store. I actually got out of my jammies and dressed to go... Thu, 12 Jul 2007 19:17:09 EST hard to do! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=577223 I do envy all of you who have taken off so much weight--I had a goal of 1-2 pounds a week and it seems like its more like 1-2 pounds a month--very discouraging! I have to get on a better track--this is not working--but my waist is smaller--go figure--lol Sat, 26 May 2007 16:48:43 EST it's moving! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=555212 Well my mind and body are focused into this thing--lol I have been very good and moving as much as possible--still have to nap for my PPS wonder! but i am loosing and that feels real good--I have picked saturday as a cheat day and so far have not sabotaged myself--so I think I am doing something right! Fri, 11 May 2007 08:45:50 EST Getting ready http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=520738 Got to get a schedule ready for May 1st--my total start day! I have frozen Healthy choice dinners and entrees, yogurt and fruit. No junk in the house except for popcorn--if that's junk. I am hoping to loose 2 pounds a week but will weight in again on 5/1 for start weight hoping it wiill be lower by then. I have a great fear of overdoing and having to put myself in the rest mode--so I will try to get here everyday to remind me of whats important here! Thank you for your support!
