I went on vacation and ended up with no computer to log in on. I lost all my streaks and lots of points. Oh well. I was mostly worried that I would not stay on track and gain a lot of my weight back. I was pretty good about what I ate and did a ... Read more

Well, the black pants have sprung back into the spotlight of my life once again. Last time I tried them on I found them to be too big. Thrilled as I was, I was in no hurry to buy new ones. I intend on losing more weight. I spend about $50 every ... Read more

I have a friend that, unbeknownst to me, decided it was time to do something about her weight. She started going to the gym and she quit drinking (as much). One day she mentioned in an email what she was doing, I praised her for doing so. I to... Read more

Soup and the lack of ice cream
Friday, July 03, 2009      1 comments

Once a week I plan a menu and then prepare a few meals so that I don't have to cook. I make sure to make enough to freeze a portion for another day. I'm not the only one who does that-I know. This makes sure we eat right, within our daily c... Read more
Re: Has anyone ever told you your goals were unrealistic?
Wednesday, July 01, 2009      2 comments

My "personal trainer" told me my goals were unrealistic. I got her "free" when I joined my gym. 5 one hour sessions "free" and $50 for each session after that. This 19 year old, size 00 California girl told me that I could not get rid of the "wi... Read more
Coffee vs. Green Tea
Sunday, June 28, 2009      1 comments

O.K. so I have been told (read, researched, lectured) that coffee works against you in losing weight. It's the caffeine they say. It makes you retain water-blah-blah-blah. I also have been told (read, researched, lectured) that drinking coffee ... Read more

When I came to the conclusion that I cannot avoid certain foods I decided to at least make them better for me. I just made an angel food cake that has less than 50 calories per slice. Add that with fresh fruit and sugar free cool whip...I don't ... Read more

These make it so much easier to spend time on a machine. If I can't make a class, this is the best way to ease the boredom of "going nowhere". Quiet time is rare in my life. This gives me relief from the constant noise of life-not to mention t... Read more

I made it out of the house today. I walked for over an hour and made it to the market for fresh fruits and veggies as well as more Omega 3-6-9 pills. I feel o.k. but I wish I could have gone to the gym. I am hoping for tomorrow. I am going to do... Read more
Starting slowly

I woke up feeling like crap and didn't do much until late in the afternoon. I walked a bit then did some stretches. I then walked a bit more. I have nothing fresh to eat in my house so I am having to rely on processed foods. I stretched a bit mo... Read more

Still in pain. Took pain pills and took long nap. Woke up starving. Ate and kept eating. So angry I just want to take another pill and go back to sleep. Can barely move so even walking is out of the question. All that work and I'm going to have ... Read more

I started by warming up for step today before class started and all was well. I picked up my mat and set aside when the teacher showed up. The music started and I got ready to warm up with the class. I lifted my left leg and tapped the bench th... Read more
