Best Test Results in Two Years
Thursday, November 17, 2016      0 comments

At my last appointment, my doctor told me that if I lost 10%, she believes I can go off diabetes medicines. I have lost 2% and I just got the best A1C rating in 2 years. What is different? Eating less sugar. Eating more natural foods. Exer... Read more

Monday, November 14, 2016      3 comments

In a previous entry, I mentioned that I had a problem thinking of appropriate incentives. As I was simultaneously contemplating incentives and sipping my chai latte, I realized that I was using chai lattes as a reward. "Aw, poor thing. Tha... Read more
Goals and Rewards - Does anyone have this problem?

I have a problem with incentives. I'm not interested in most of the things suggested as rewards for losing a certain amount of weight. I am trying to declutter and to reduce spending, so I don't want a purchased item as a reward. If I... Read more

Monday, October 31, 2016      3 comments

This is the first year in a long time that I didn't open and eat my Halloween candy for the trick-or-treaters before Halloween. I did eat a piece this evening and wondered how I ever liked something so cloyingly sweet. Not only did I save m... Read more
Does SparkPeople Work?
Friday, October 28, 2016      6 comments

You can look at the success stories and tell that SparkPeople does indeed work. Perhaps the question should really be "Will SparkPeople work for me"? I have been a member for 10 years and am now heavier than when I started. But I still... Read more
Non-scale victory or not?
Friday, October 21, 2016      1 comments

Recently several people have asked if I have lost weight. Well, yes, but not very much. In fact, it has been several months since I have seen them and I had gained in the interim. I think I'm almost exactly where I was the last time I saw ... Read more

Tuesday I participated in Walk at Work for the first time in months. Since the weather was cooler, I really enjoyed it. I need to remember to bring a water bottle and my inhaler, but I managed by walking to the inside and drinking from the water... Read more

My husband's graduating class is gathering for their 40th reunion this weekend. I think I'll know about 6 people, but maybe I'll enjoy meeting new people even though I tend to be introverted. Tonight's activity is a dessert fellowship. Prev... Read more

Walking the dog
Wednesday, October 05, 2016      2 comments

I can't walk the dog because holding the leash aggravates my tennis elbow. However, now that the weather is a little cooler, I am accompanying my husband or daughter on the walks. I am winded long before the dog is ready to go home. I think I'm ... Read more

My sister-in-law had weight reduction surgery and has lost about 90 pounds. A friend's daughter has lost 85 pounds by replacing meals with shakes. I want similar results without surgery or shakes. I obviously need to change something, ... Read more
Breaking up is hard to do
Monday, October 03, 2016      2 comments

I've read breakup blog entries that are humorous. I wish I could be so clever. I have decided that I don't like the way I feel when I eat peanut butter M&Ms. Maybe it's the dairy. All of my children have some degree of dairy sensitivity. Ma... Read more
