Tuesday, August 26, 2014      1 comments

I am on the second day of a 21 day sugar fast. I really need to revamp after a summer that ended up being crazy busy, which led to lazy eating habits. Anyone need some accountability, as well? I would love a partner in this endeavor...someone to... Read more

The Bathroom Scales is Finally My Friend!

Thursday, April 24, 2014      2 comments

So many times, when I am waffling or not giving this new lifestyle change 100% of my efforts, any thoughts I have about the scale are downright unpleasant. I dread getting on it, I dread looking at that number that will probably not have moved, ... Read more

Aaaahhhh! It's not working!

Wednesday, January 15, 2014      3 comments

So I have spent the last couple of weeks curbing my sugar intake, exercising faithfully, and cutting my calories. I have tracked carefully every day but a couple. I got on the scales this morning excited about seeing some good progress. And what... Read more

An extra incentive for winning the weight battle!

Friday, December 27, 2013      2 comments

I lost 7 pounds between Sept 1 and Oct 31. I was on a roll. The last couple of months, however, have been extremely difficult--two international trips and the holidays. But my daughter also got engaged last month! I am so excited for her a... Read more

Resisting the Chocolate Cake

Thursday, October 10, 2013      8 comments

5 pounds!

Thursday, September 26, 2013      2 comments

Since I blogged here five weeks ago I have lost 5 pounds. That is about one pound per week. This time around I am taking it slowly and trying to make a complete lifestyle change rather than to lose a bunch of weight in a short amount of time. Pa... Read more

Now it's a health issue

Thursday, August 22, 2013      9 comments

I think I joined Sparkpeople in 2008. Since that time I have lost 20 pounds but regained 25. Some of that time I have worked hard and given every effort, other times I have done alright but not great and then there are the times--the weeks--I ju... Read more

A small victory today

Monday, February 11, 2013      4 comments

So, I haven't blogged in here since July 9, 2012. Here I am seven months later and at a much worse place. I am SO disappointed in myself. And what is the most scary by far is that I can't seem to find the motivation inside to even try for ... Read more

Okay...I am going to just bite the bullet

Monday, July 09, 2012      1 comments

I have been waiting to enter my measurements for 2 months, thinking that I will wait until I am at a better place. But I decided it is just time to bite the bullet and be honest with myself. I am where I am. Until I accept it, I won't be able... Read more

Has anyone tried Kale Chips yet? I received kale from my CSA and didn't have any idea what to do with it. So I found a recipe for kale chips. I wasn't anticipating likin... Read more

After Several Years...

Sunday, April 01, 2012      1 comments

I finally have realized that I have to learn how to persevere through the rough times-- the "not normal" times -- the frustrating weeks--because they happen more often than the routine days. I will do great for a week or two and then some... Read more
