I have been tracking my food, water & exercise. I just have not been blogging. I set alarms on my cell phone for...6:00, stop drinking water, 9:00, get off the laptop & take your eve. meds & 11:00, go to bed. So far I've missed two of my goals/curfews...I'm still drinking water & still on my laptop...so with that I better get the heck out of here. Take care & have a good week. <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>41</em> Sun, 31 Jul 2016 21:37:58 EST Me Again... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6207367 Just a note to say Hello & to tell you that I did not fall off the wagon...I have just not been very good at tracking or blogging. I am still very much on SP but I need to get back in my SP groove. Take care... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>41</em> Wed, 27 Jul 2016 00:53:20 EST A pretty good day of shopping... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6202249 Rode my bike 10.1 miles, tracked my food & had a successful day of shopping. I was so excited to find just the right pair of tennis shoes & four watches in 4 colors. Did not sleep well last night but am hoping for some Sweet Dreams & plenty of Beauty Sleep too. Take care... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>41</em> Sun, 17 Jul 2016 22:51:15 EST Short & Sweet... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6201728 It is past 11:00 & I should be in bed. Even though I have not blogged since the 13th, I have been tracking my food & exercise. I'm still down 29 lbs. & feeling pretty good. Hope that all of you are having a great weekend.

It's been a... "Life Gets in the Way" kind of week. I last blogged on July 8th & last rode my bike on Mon. Yesterday & today, I have been helping with a friend...took her to the hospital Tues. & spent the day there...stayed with her kids last night & will do the same tonight, as they plan to keep her one more day at the hospital. I feel like I'm off my game...my time schedule, my meals, my bike riding...everything feels like it is on hold. I'm hoping that thin... Wed, 13 Jul 2016 16:22:22 EST Whoops, I missed another day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6197207 Short & Sweet...I rode 10.3 miles, tracked my food & this is my blog. Have a good weekend... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>41</em> Fri, 8 Jul 2016 21:55:51 EST What the H is going on? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6196130 I'm going to try to be honest with myself...I have not blogged since Sun. Today is Wed. I did not ride my bike today & I have not tracked my food yesterday or today. I didn't even weigh myself today...so what is going on? Hmmmm...let's see...I went out to dinner Mon. eve. with my husband & some friends of ours. I had ridden my bike 10 miles that morning & had not eaten since an early lunch. I consciously made a decision to order spaghetti & meatballs & I also had 2 Pepsis. It had been "ages"... Wed, 6 Jul 2016 22:06:20 EST I guess that I missed yesterday... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6194266 Blogging that is...I tracked my exercise...10.3 miles on my bike (July 2)...& my food too. Today I rode my bike 10.2 miles. When I got up, it was raining slightly...actually just a sprinkle. I was determined to get my ride in, even if I got wet...I just don't do lightning & thunder. I managed to complete my ride & my clothes were just slightly damp. Hoping that the majority of you have been having a sunny 4th of July weekend. Take care... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>41</em> Sun, 3 Jul 2016 19:15:08 EST Can't believe that July has arrived... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6193241 Rode my recumbent bike 10.1 miles today. Played euchre & there were no refreshments...probably a good thing...it is usually junk food/wasted calories. Went to the Kroger & bought a ton of healthy food for the weekend. The Kroger was SO crowded...it felt like Thanksgiving. All in all, it has been a good day. Take care..Happy 4th of July weekend... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>41</em> Fri, 1 Jul 2016 20:48:59 EST Where did this week go? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6192549 I rode my bike 9.2 miles in 64 min. I can't believe that it is almost the end of the week & it is the end of the month...this week seemed to fly by. I'm glad that the weather cooled off a little, at least the humidity feels less. I've been trying to get to bed every night at 11:00, so that I can get up (without an alarm) early enough to ride while it is still cool. Had lunch with friends today & made some pretty decent food choices. Hope that everyone is having a good week. <BR> Take care... ... Thu, 30 Jun 2016 17:22:42 EST A pretty normal day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6192044 HEY EVERYONE...I didn't do much today, other than 10.3 miles on my bike. I just did "stuff" around the house, but I was very pleased to have Mr. Scale smile at me...I have lost about 28 lbs. since April 4th. One thing that I have been trying to do this week, is to increase my amt. of protein & keep my food portion sizes to a minimum. That's my latest. Take care... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>41</em> Wed, 29 Jun 2016 21:42:35 EST Not eating enough?? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6191480 Rode my bike 10.1 avg. 8 mph in 72 min. VERY seldom, in the past...was I ever guilty of NOT eating enough, but lately I have been messing with my crazy schedule & have not been eating my meals at the same time every day. It seems to disrupt my food choices, as I tell myself oh it's OK to eat that, because you skipped breakfast or lunch...ANYway, that's all for now. Take care & have a good week... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>102</em> <BR> <BR> P.S. Need to get to bed... Tue, 28 Jun 2016 23:34:41 EST Back at it on Monday... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6190733 10.4 miles in 72 minutes with average 8 mph. I have decided to add my activity for the day, because I still haven't figured out how to track my mileage & be able to go back to a previous date to see what my mileage was that day. I have been going to my fitness tracker page. I click on the mileage tab & then fill in the time spent, mileage & what type of activity, but when I for instance, check yesterday's fitness page, it only says how long I exercised & how many calories I burned. There is n...

Took my meds & plan to be IN bed by 11:00. Take care... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>24</em> Sat, 25 Jun 2016 21:32:16 EST I have a question... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6189115 I started back on SP on April 4th but didn't start exercising (riding my recumbent bike) on June 9th. I have been tracking the amt. of time, the number of miles & the type of activity but I can't find the figure that says how many TOTAL miles I have ridden since June 9th. Any suggestions? It is almost 11:00, so I will be off to bed soon...Take care... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>38</em> Fri, 24 Jun 2016 22:52:02 EST Oooops...missed another day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6188515 Not sure how I did it but I did not blog yesterday. The good news is I am back riding my bike as of Mon. Tues. Wed. & today. The temps have been hot, but I have been riding early in the morning. OK, it is 11:04, so I need to get off my laptop & onto my bed...Sweet Dreams... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>102</em> Thu, 23 Jun 2016 23:04:55 EST Skipped a day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6187199 Not sure why, but I missed blogging yesterday, but at least I did get in 10.2 miles on my bike. I went to bed way too late last night & woke up AFTER 1:00 P.M. pretty much lost half of my day. I have BIG plans to get to bed by 11:00 & be ON my bike by 8. That;s the plan. I need to get off this laptop. Take care. <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>24</em> Tue, 21 Jun 2016 22:02:41 EST Sun. night...losing my mind... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6185943 Short & Sweet...I've had a good day, but I am watching THE game...Go Cavs!!! <em>104</em> <BR> <BR> JANEY Sun, 19 Jun 2016 22:09:31 EST A Busy Saturday... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6185419 Did not get enough sleep last night & got up early this morning. I ate a healthy breakfast but went to a Memorial service out of town & my lunch was a bunch of stuff that was served at the reception... somewhat hard to track. I was gone almost 12 hrs. today, had a milkshake on the way home, but just had protein for dinner. Am anxious to get back in the groove & back to my bike riding. Take care,,, <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>24</em> Sat, 18 Jun 2016 22:38:11 EST Darn, Missed a Day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6184860 I missed blogging yesterday & I did not ride my bike on Thur. or today. I have decided that I need to blog EARLIER in the day...as sometimes in the eve. I forget to blog about my day...I guess that I usually like to wait until I have completed my meals for the day before checking in...Something else that I have been thinking about is...way back when...my every thought, my every plan...revolved around where & when I would have my next meal or snack...almost like a junkie...always worried about... Fri, 17 Jun 2016 20:56:56 EST A Hot Wednesday... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6183742 I was already to take my bike ride this morning, but instead the hard rain storm deterred me...but only for about 30 min. I actually considered heading for the local Sr. Ctr. to work out on the bikes there & then the rain stopped. I was glad, but OMG was it hot & humid. I had hoped that the rain had cooled things down, but it was even more muggy. I managed to get in another 10 miles in about 80 minutes. I don't try to set any records with my time...in fact I enjoy short stops to visit with my... Wed, 15 Jun 2016 23:51:14 EST It's still Monday to me... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6182450 Even though it is after midnight...I am still awake & feel like it is still Monday. The weather was gorgeous & I took off on my bike & managed to get in 10 miles before the heat hit me. I did pretty well with my food choices but maybe didn't eat enough...I am tired so I am going to head for bed & get my Beauty Sleep. BTW...Mr. Scale smiled at me today...happy to be down 24 lbs. since April 1st...Thank you to all my SP friends for their support...Take care... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>102</em> Tue, 14 Jun 2016 00:56:51 EST Another Good but Busy Day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6181739 Got up early this morning & rode my bike 8.1 miles, tacked my food & weighed in.

I played euchre at the local Sr. Ctr. & ate way too much junk food. My girlfriend & I went out to dinner & to the early show & again, I made some pretty poor food choices...all in all, it was NOT the day that I had intended. So I plan to be "back at it" tomorrow. Take care... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>39</em> Fri, 10 Jun 2016 23:27:25 EST FINALLY...Exercise... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6179878 Not sure WHY, but this morning I decided that I would get my recumbent bike out & take a ride. The weather was beautiful & I really enjoyed getting out. I have to admit...the first time I pressed down on the pedal, I thought that my right knee would pop, but by the end of my 5.5 mile ride, my knees weren't bothering me at all. I took my time (52 min.) & spoke with many of my neighbors. My plan is to ride every day & try to increase my mileage each day. As the weather gets warmer, I will need ... Thu, 9 Jun 2016 21:02:46 EST Wed. a Weird Day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6179323 Got up early...took my husband for his colonoscopy...all good news. The weird/funny part of my day...I cut my finger opening a bottle of Benadryl...then I cut my elbow on the toilet roll dispenser at the doctor's office & then as I "strolled" through the lobby of the office, I noticed a tag on my new capris... showing the size & price...made me LOL. I have made some pretty good food choices today & was excited to talk to the doctor today & brag. I have lost a total of 23 lbs. (15 lbs. since I...

My husband is having a colonoscopy tomorrow & I found myself not eating too much either...I might grab something quick before I go to bed so that I will be able to sleep without getting up because I'm hungry...I'll probably still have to pee a zillion times...haha...Take care... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>4</em> Tue, 7 Jun 2016 21:27:15 EST Monday, Monday...a good day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6177942 I did not sleep well last night, as I was up 3X a night to the bathroom to pee. Because I was meeting some friends for an early lunch, I did not eat breakfast. Had a good solid meal & enjoyed my girlfriends. The scale smiled at me this morning which was good news too. I started out at 260 lbs. on April 1st & today, I weighed in at 237.4...Yes, I am pleased. Well, here it is...well after 9:00 P.M. & am still on my laptop. So with that, I will sign off.

Mon, 6 Jun 2016 22:35:55 EST Back up & Running... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6177176 I like that comment...one of my dear SP friends said that to me, to encourage me to get back in the groove. I feel good this evening...haven't probably had enough calories today. That's OK...I had plenty yesterday. Had lots of water today & stayed busy. It wasn't until about 5:00, I could hear/feel my stomach rumbling...I had not had lunch...not a good habit. ANYway, I seem to be sleeping better, so that always helps.

I hit the ground running...skipped past breakfast & ended up eating my first meal of the day, closer to noon. Showered, went to the Kroger & finally ate my dinner meal at about 5:00 but I barely have had 600 calories. Hope that hunger does not keep me awake tonight. My son is here visiting me, from W.Va. & I am trying to continue staying ON the wagon...

I am typing as fast as I can, but it is already past midnight, but I still think of it as Wed. I went to a BFD retirement ceremony/reception this afternoon & ate way too much food, some junk food. This eve. I went to a friend's house & continued to eat more junk food. I will probably pay for it tomorrow. It was like my daughter, Jan-Marie once said to me...something to the effect..."If you get a flat tire, t... Thu, 2 Jun 2016 00:10:39 EST A Pretty Good Day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6174054 I went to bed last night at 11:30 & slept till almost 10:00...howEVER...I was up 4-5X to pee. It seems like it was almost every hour, so needless to say...I was tired all day. As a favor, I went to an elementary school to do a reading to a Kindergarten class...my friend's son was in the class, but she was unable to be there. Her son was Student of the Week, so it was important that I filled in for his Mom. It was a fun experience & I enjoyed my time with the kids. Somehow, once again, I misse... Tue, 31 May 2016 22:16:52 EST Memorial Day Monday 2016 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6173290 I have had a pretty quiet weekend...no cookouts...which right now, has been a big help. No need to try & figure out the calories, because someone else prepared it. I ran around today doing errands & stayed busy...didn't mean to, but missed lunch. I basically stripped the shelves & coolers at the Kroger this afternoon of all good & healthy food, so I am looking forward to some good meals this week. Take care & have a good week... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>30</em> Mon, 30 May 2016 20:14:16 EST Close Call with a Jar of Peanut Butter... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6172711 Last night I fell into several bad habits...I stayed up way too late & I decided that I was going to just sit down with a jar of PB with a tablespoon & also have some pretzels. What was I thinking...guess that I wasn't. I was tired, bored & just felt like a "closet eater" Went to bed, after 2 A.M. & then slept in till 11:00...felt hungover this morning. Half my day was over, so I tried really hard to get back in the groove & did pretty well. My dear husband is pretty agreeable about the "love...

It was hot out & I felt like I was exercising. <BR> <BR> JANEY Sat, 28 May 2016 23:59:29 EST Missed a Day but here I am... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6171598 I am feeling pretty good today...had a long good night's sleep. Tracked my food, weighed in & lost a lb. Just in case you are wondering...it wasn't the scale that put a smile on my face. I'm just happy that I made healthy food choices & I kept food portion size in mind. I decided not to play euchre today (not an easy decision). Instead I helped my husband with getting out the rest of the deck furniture...he scrubbed part of the deck. We are both sore...hope that I can move tomorrow. I have be...

I didn't go crazy, I just need to get back in my groove & structure my schedule better. I am too tired to continue blogging. At this point I just need to go to bed & start anew tomorrow.

Anything that I'd say would be just excuses. I hit the Kroger hard today & am back on the scene. The best Sparkpeople tools that work for me are...weighing in daily...tracking my food...blogging...drinking a minimum of 8 glasses of water... getting 7-8 hrs. of sleep...food portion & eventually...soon...exercise will be added...That is all for now. I need to head for bed & get my beauty sleep... <BR> <BR> JANEY <em>24</em> ...

I feel lousy but I am not jumping off the wagon...just tired & disgusted. Plan to go to bed early. I have another long 12 hour + day tomorrow, so my plan is to absolutely eat healthy food, watch portion control & to take three breaks tomorrow & WALK around the perimeter of the property which is about a mile. It is supposed to be nice weather, so I have no excuses. I have not tracked my food yet tod...

My husband & I went to the Waffle House this morning. For me, that will be a ONCE a YEAR activity...the food all tasted heavy & greasy...I only had 2 scrambled eggs, 2 sausage patties, 2 slices of raisin bran & a small glass of OJ. I did not have any lunch & had a late dinner...I fixed some Tilapia fish (yuck...I think that I will stick to flounder) & some veggies. I am tired & plan to get to bed earlier this eve.

Unfortunately my bladder was up 3X, so I was very tired when I crawled out of bed at almost 11:00 (almost 9 hrs. but interrupted sleep). My day got better when I got on the scale...I remember when I was a lot younger & when I turned 31, I said...OMG, I am IN my thirties...when the scale read 239.6, I said OMG, I'm IN my thirties. Back on April 4th, I weighed 260 lbs....

I so appreciate all the wonderful supportive comments & suggestions that I received after my Not-So-Good day on Sunday. I had a much better day today...ate healthy & a lot less. I was floored to find 1 less lb. on the scale this morning..I think my body must have worked overtime to get rid of all that fat..haha. ANYway, it is almost 1:30 so I better head for bed & get my Beauty Sleep, Take care. <BR> <BR> JANEY...

Went to church with a friend & ended up having lunch much earlier in the day than I usually do. We went to O'Charley's & I let TWO rolls WITH butter suck me in...I wasn't all that hungry & I still had the Ultimate Omelet (which is 4 eggs +). I should have quit RIGHT there...but I didn't. Later in the day, with the same friend...went to her daughter's piano recital. There were some delicious cookies &...

It wasn't a real busy day & as a result, I found myself eating when I wasn't even hungry. I had a total of 1,213 calories, but 730 of them were snacks.

I find myself dreading the day (probably soon) that I get on the scale & it just sort of stays there & there's no more losing that day. I know that it is not that big of a deal...it's not about the numbers. I have heard that it is not good to weigh yourself every day, but it seems to help me stay on course.
