I've decided to post the number of calories I eat and the number I burn everyday. I think it will be a good motivator for me, knowing I'm putting it out there, hopefully, will keep me honest!... Read more
Day 3 of the New Year
On track so far. Even though it is too soon to actually SEE the difference, I can FEEL the difference. I'm finally getting over my cold and I have done some exercise and stayed under 1400 calories each day. I'm sure 2 weeks worth of rest after ... Read more
Only one resolution this year.
Get on Sparkpeople at least once everyday! I need to track my food like I did in the beginning. I don't know what I weigh, I'm afraid to get on the scales. I haven't gained back all of my lost weight, but more than I would like. My size 10 jeans... Read more
Not a happy camper...
Where do I start? Well, January 12th was my 3 year Sparkversary. I have to say I have stuck with Sparkpeople the whole time, learned many new healthy habits, lost weight and I am healthier over all. So what's the problem? I hit my low weight of ... Read more
For those who read my last blog entry, I just wanted to let you all know that I am feeling better. I have been exercising a lot and eating well.
After a lapse of several years I have been able to get back into lap swimming. ... Read more
How do you know?
I'm not happy with myself or the scales at the moment. Summer is hard on my diet, I get more exercise but it's so much easier to eat too much of the wrong things when I am at the house all day. I try to keep healthy snacks around, but too many ... Read more
Over flowing energy
Now that school is out and I have caught up on my rest and house work, I have too much energy! I have been working in the yard early in the morning when it is still cool. I go to the pool, do walking videos, read, nap, go to the library, cook a... Read more
One more plus for Kindle
I have never been able to read in the car, makes me car sick. My husband and son can both read in the car with no problems. This past weekend we took our son to UNT preview weekend which is about 4 hours from home. I normally do the driving on ... Read more

Upsides and Downsides of Kindle
Finally broke down and got a Kindle. I had been very resistant to the idea ever since I heard of them, me being such an old-fashioned, low-tech sort of chick. But I have finally seen the hand writing on the wall. This is where we are going. I wo... Read more
Starting to progress...I think.
Just wanted to let every know that I think I have made a little progress. This morning I was down to 151.0! That's the lowest in several months. Sad to say that the problem has been that I was just eating too many calories! I have been holding i... Read more
I just don't get it
I don't know what else to do. It seems my body wants to take every stray calorie, turn it into fat and store it on my belly. It maybe my imagination but it seems to swell up every single day.
I exercise, I drink water, I eat fruit, I trac... Read more
Crap! It is fat!
I put on some pants that I had not worn in a while, they are tight. I could wear them but I could definitely feel the difference, they were almost loose when I wore them a month ago. I'm exercising and drinking my water, but I think this holida... Read more
I'm tired...maintenance is hell.
I know why people fall off the maintenance wagon. After awhile you get tired of having to watch every bite you put in your mouth, and this is KEEPING IT OFF, NOT TAKING IT OFF! Losing was easy compared to this.
In the beginning there were ... Read more
the "chili" story
This is just one of those things, I thought it was good story, and so typical of men. For the past 24 years, ever since my husband and I married, he has eaten my homemade chili under protest. I love chili and I think I make darn good chili, but... Read more
