I am pleased to report that I met my goal of not gaining any weight during the holiday season. In fact, I ended up losing two pounds. Around Christmas I wasn't sure that I would make it, but somehow managed to renew my resolve and make it throug... Read more

I was on the verge of a mini-meltdown yesterday. I'm not really sure why. Today is a much better day. I know I shouldn't weigh in more than once a week, but I weighed again today just to see if the one pound that I thought I had lost was r... Read more

Here it is another Monday. I've lost another pound, so why do I feel so down? I'm making progress--that's a good thing, right? Why am I so hard on myself? Simply "good" is never "good enough." STOP IT BETH!!!!!!! I am determined to be ... Read more

Today brought the first signs of winter with snow flurries falling briefly this afternoon. The seasons are so clearly defined--falling leaves signal the arrival of fall, blooming flowers bring the promise of spring, chirping crickets sound the a... Read more
Developing Consistency

Well, I somehow skipped logging in to Spark yesterday. It COMPLETELY slipped my mind. It is yet another example of my need to develop more consistency in my life. To be honest--it really reflects a need for discipline! I need to be more self-dis... Read more

God is so good. I had a much better day today. (No memory lapses--not even the tiniest of words.) I had a lot of work projects that had stacked up on my desk. I got in a little early and dove right in. I came up for air about 3 pm wondering if t... Read more
Memory Lapse
Monday, June 04, 2007      3 comments

Before I write about my memory lapse I have a praise report. Today I went for my six-month check-up with my Endocrinologist. She was very complimentary over my weight loss and the fact that my Diabetes is under control. PRAISE GOD! She said that... Read more
