Saw some pics of a former coworker....
A former coworker of mine posted some pics of herself on a website. She was morbidly, I mean morbidly obese. I am also morbidly obese, but I looked thin compared to her. She had the most beautiful face.
She had lost about 85 pounds in... Read more
9/6/10 - Labor Day
What a labor to keep this weight off only to find that I gained 30 pounds back. I am so discouraged right now. I started again today, really keeping track. I went to the doctor for a new prescription for high blood pressure, and they weighed ... Read more
I will not get discouraged
I find that as I have been exercising everyday and watching what I eat, logging in my calories and foods, tracking exercises and other goals, I should be jumping with joy. I know I want to lose weight today, not tomorrow. I have to have patien... Read more
Getting there slowly but....

Okay, now then...

Looking in the mirror...

A Temporary Roadblock
For the past two months, I cannot get on track with keeping my food diary or exercising. It feels there is one obstacle after another. I had the food thing under control for the past year, but lately, I am feeling hungry all of the time, which... Read more
Today, I buried my mom. I know she went on her long journey. Her work here was finished and I know she is welcomed by open arms in Heaven. I am just going to celebrate her life and cherish all of her memories that she left behind. I am going... Read more
It will take a while...
to heal, when you lose someone who was a part of you, not only a mother, but a best friend. Mom passed this evening comfortably, peacefully, with no pain. God bless her. I will miss her so much. She is the one person in my life that never di... Read more
