My Daughter's Wedding
Monday, June 19, 2017      12 comments

This weekend was a very special one for me and for my family. My daughter got married and I was able to spend time with so many family members I haven't seen for a long time. The day was magical but of course food is always on my mind. I have lo... Read more

Yesterday my I went to a bbq for a young colleague of my husband's. I didn't know anyone at this party and I wore a pair of SHORTS and a tank top. I emphasized the word shorts because all I have ever worn before were skorts or capris to things l... Read more

I'm not exactly sure how to express what I'm feeling. I have maintained my goal weight (within one or two pounds) since I hit it but I know I am not doing things in the healthiest of ways. I am eating and exercising during the week--but at aroun... Read more

Ok, so this morning I hit that illusive number I was aiming for 41 pounds ago when I started losing weight. It felt pretty good, I won't lie. I went to the gym and told a few people there that I see regularly. They were happy for me but then wen... Read more

Okay....so hubby and I went to Mammoth Lakes (where it is showing) for 4 days of R and R. We were staying in a condo so we packed all kinds of healthy foods to take with us in a cooler. It's about a 5 hour drive for us to get there. I had scoped... Read more
Feeling tentatively hopeful

Today I weighed in at 126.5--1.5 pounds from my goal. Wow. 7 months ago when I was 166 pounds this weight seemed impossibly unattainable. I'm only 5 ft 1 so at 166 I was in the "obese" category (as my Dr. informed me last May). How do I feel tod... Read more
Will I ever figure this out?

I haven't blogged in over 5 years. I'm not even sure what I want to say now except that I'd like to connect with everyone because I think it helps me. Back in 2010 I lost weight and got down to my goal weight. I was uber strict, fanatical really... Read more
Just Checking In....

You know, I just realized I found SparkPeople about a year ago. I’d like to say that I’m thinner, healthier, my life is perfect etc. but that’s just not the case. I actually weight MORE now than I did when I started. HOWEVER, (and this is a b... Read more
Not starting over, just changing my game plan.....

Well I haven’t weighed myself in quite awhile.....until today. I KNEW I’d gained quite a bit of weight back but wasn’t ready to acknowledge the reality of how much until this morning. You know what? The sky didn’t fall and the world didn’t en... Read more

I haven’t blogged in quite a while. I didn’t want to repeat the same stuff over and over again. I eat well, I lose weight, I binge, I gain weight. Repeat. The pattern of my life is so BORING. REALLY. If I look back at when all my eating i... Read more
Still plugging along.......

Well I haven’t blogged in a while so I thought I’d just check in with everybody. After my LAST blog I kind of swung the other direction. What’s is with that anyway? Everything is going GREAT, I’m being positive then WHAMO--binge city. So, ye... Read more
Back on track???

I haven't posted any blogs for quite a while. My last blog mentioned how I'd gained weight and was binging again. It's scary stuff this yo-yo mentality. Like so many of you (and thank you btw for all writing so honestly in your own blogs beca... Read more
It's shocking how fast the weight can come back
Thursday, December 23, 2010      6 comments

Last Friday I was at my goal weight. Today I got on the scale and I've gained NINE POUNDS! Is that possible? Well, 6 days of bingeing and the way my clothes are fitting (or not fitting as the case may be) tell me it is possible. I really tho... Read more
It's so easy to fall back into old patterns

Today I feel tired and sad. I binged last night and the night before. By binge, I just don't mean I overate. I mean, in the cupboard, eating boxes of whatever I could (ex. an entire box of high fiber granola bars....and if you don't think TH... Read more
Tackling twisted thinking
Sunday, December 05, 2010      7 comments

So I've been thinking about why I go crazy sometimes and completely lose control....All week I've been "perfectly" tracking my food/exercise/etc. I got on the scale yesterday to see the number I wanted (still at goal weight) then went to a part... Read more
