Change of Plan

Tuesday, June 23, 2009      1 comments

Frustration

Saturday, June 20, 2009      4 comments

Here I am loggig my food faithfully and staying within my caloric range most of the time and the scale didn't move again. Even the couple of times I misbehaved, I was still under the amount that my body supposedly uses up during a 24-hour perio... Read more

Update And New Goals

Monday, May 25, 2009      1 comments

I haven't blogged in over two years, so I guess it is time to get started again. I had my first knee replaced in February 2008 and shortly after that my other knee got real bad. Not only that, but RA decided to flare up and stay with me. ... Read more

Are You Grateful For The Luxuries In Your Life?

Patience

Saturday, February 10, 2007      3 comments

Patience is so hard to muster. This year I haven't seen the results I was hoping for and it kind of kept me from keeping track on things. I have not been consistent with my exercises nor my eating habits and the scale reflects that. I have ga... Read more

January Blahs

Wednesday, January 24, 2007      0 comments

So far, this month has been too cold and snowy for my taste. I find it so hard to get motivated to do my exercises consistently. I don't have the money or the time to join a gym. At home I seem to do the same boring moves and I don't think th... Read more

Well, it took me this long, but I am finally back to my pre-Christmas weight. This week is challenging too because I have to work overnight for a few nights and this messes with my system and my routines. I don't get the sleep I need and... Read more

Learning to love healthy food at a young age

I have lost 45 lbs since May of this year. I doubt I will lose 8 lbs this months in order to reach my first goal. I realize how big of a role the hated exercises play in my weight loss program. I did not exercise for at least 3 weeks be... Read more
