I don't know what I can freeze successfully other than your typical meat, soups, and veggies.
Need a list of suggestions...Thanks fellow sparkies...... Read more

Woohoo for me!
Well, after a good swift kick in the hiney, I started to track my food again. Welll what a surprise (glad I was sitting down when I got the news), I was down 5 pounds. Yesterday, eventhough I was hurting in the right knee, I still walked at the ... Read more
After having a long talk with my bro (On2Victory), I stepped on the scale today and realized I was up another 5 pounds. What am I doing wrong? What was I thinking?! Between my brother's encouragement, and a conversation with my original WW leade... Read more
Oh Boy...I am ashamed...
It has been since March that I wrote my last entry...
So much has happened and none of it good. I am currently struggling with my weight, as I have found out that I haven't gained the 10 pounds I was hoping for out of this mess of a life, ... Read more
How stress can destroy you...and how one text can save you!
It's been a while since I last blogged or done much of anything. Lately I have been feeling lost and out of control with my life. One day I received a text from On2Victory, my brother, asking if everything was ok because he hadn't heard from me ... Read more
A new Milestone - Woohoo moment!
It's only a beginning baby step, but I am still very excited about this.
Today was my second attempt, but I gave it my best shot, and I did it. I went to the gym today, and went straight to the treadmill. I decided to try to "jog" on the t... Read more
Thank God for Sparkpeople!

Goal for this week...
When weight watchers rolled out there new point system this past week, I have to be the first to admit that I felt a little apprehensive. I loved the idea of more points in my daily target, and the increase in the additional weekly points. Also,... Read more
Thanks for the perspectives!
Kamaperry had a comment that I never thought of. As we women age, we have to watch out for osteoporosis after menopause. I totally forgot about strength training just to keep our bones strong. This has given me new incentive to put everything I ... Read more
Feeling the burn
Day 4 of personal torture - my trainer pushed me a little more, and I asked him if he was pushing to make me into one of those body builders, and he responded that he wasn't but he did say that you have to build muscle to tone muscle. Any Commen... Read more
Got beat up today at the gym...
Had my first real personal training session, and we worked on arms/shoulders. All I can say is I WILL feel it tomorrow, and I am preempting this onset of soreness by 1000mg tylenol every 6 hours. I found out something today...I have muscles up t... Read more
