Another Sunday, Another Step Backward
Sunday, May 29, 2016      3 comments

Well I did it again. At least 800 calories over my range. It is no wonder I'm having such trouble losing. I have got to figure out a plan for Sunday's and STICK WITH IT! Today was not a normal Sunday, but it did follow the normal pattern and th... Read more
FitBit and stuff
Friday, May 27, 2016      2 comments

Loaned my fit bit to DH today. He's been bugging me for about a week. Wants to know how many steps he puts in each day. At lunch he told me he has over 9000 steps in already. Wow. Then he said part of them are probably from the impact tools he u... Read more

I Learned A Valuable Lesson
Tuesday, May 10, 2016      5 comments

Went to Illinois Friday and Saturday with both girls, and I learned a valuable lesson. Don't put DDs in charge of buying the meals and expect wise choices for my diet or pocketbook. Friday night I spent over $30 on a simple fast food dinner for ... Read more
Sundays are hard
Monday, May 02, 2016      1 comments

If I were to look at the past 6 months food logs, they would show that almost every Sunday I have gone over my calorie goal by at least 100 calories almost every week. Yesterday it was closer to 4 or 500. I try, I really do. I make my breakfast... Read more
FitBit 2
Saturday, April 16, 2016      1 comments

I've had my fitbit for 2 weeks now and really like it. I do have a few issues with it but they are minor. 1. Most annoying-it doesn't want to sync about 1/3 of the time. I can live with that as long as it syncs most of the time. 2. The battery ... Read more

I ordered a fitbit from eBay last week and it came Thursday. Already my step count has been above 7000 steps per day. With my phone pedometer I ranged from about 100 to 5000. I had to charge my phone every day and twice a day if I used it heavil... Read more
Another BL challenge is over
Friday, February 19, 2016      4 comments

Well the BL Winter challenge is over all that is left is to find out who won. Not me. I did terrible this last week and barely showed a loss at all for the last 10 weeks. I knew it was coming when DH's great uncle passed away last week and DH wa... Read more
February WOW
Thursday, February 04, 2016      7 comments

The year is off to a flying start. Where did January go? The plateau I was on last year is truly busted. I am 3# lower than my lowest in November of 2014. It took a long time to get here but now to move forward. I found a new site/ap to help m... Read more
New Year New Goals
Friday, January 01, 2016      3 comments

Looking over last year's goals even though I tried to make them realistic I only really actually completed -none of them. I did lose weight - not 20%, I did read/listen to the whole Bible - only took notes about 2 months, I did pay off 1 credit ... Read more

Just got DH's truck fixed last week and mine is ready to go in the shop today. Broke down about 1.5 miles from home. After dark and DH isn't good with fixing much except brakes. Have to tow it home tomorrow.... Read more
First major party -done
Saturday, December 05, 2015      4 comments

Well tonight was the first MAJOR Christmas party of the year. DH's work party. I think I did ok. I had a few more chips than I planned- we arrived about an hour before dinner was served and the only things to snack on while waiting were tortilla... Read more
Such a week( or is it 2)
Friday, November 27, 2015      3 comments

We have had an interesting time recently. DH's truck broke down on the way to work about 10 days ago. The clutch went out on DD1's car the week before that(she doesn't have the cash to fix it on part time pay). We're all sharing my minivan. That... Read more
What am I doing different?
Saturday, November 14, 2015      2 comments

This week has seen good movement on the scale. I don't know what I'm doing differently, but whatever it is, it's working. For the first time in months I have lost more than 1 # in just one week. Maybe it's just the perseverance finally doing it'... Read more
