I found the part of my brain that knows the truth
I got to walk with a friend today! That hasn't happened in months, and it was just random--she saw me out walking yesterday & asked if she could join me today. And I wasn't even planning to walk two days in a row!
I am not a big plan ahead,... Read more

Adding daily reminders to my life
I just finished the latest BLC here on SparkPeople. It was my third round and the least successful if all you're measuring is pounds lost. I think it was valuable time spent learning about myself. Especially how I handle stress. But enough about... Read more
Time for Reflection--halfway through
Looking back on the last six weeks, I see a lot of ups and downs instead of steady progress on my goals. A lot of it has to do with stress at work and vacation thinking. I had family visiting for a couple weeks, and even though all of my chil... Read more

Pantry list for WC
The latest WC asked all of us to make a grocery list of staples we keep in our kitchen to be prepared to eat healthy at all times. My mom always taught me keep my kitchen stocked, so I have a running grocery list in my head all the time.

Onward to week 2!
Today starts the 2nd week of the BLC. I lost 1 pound the first week, which is good, but it will be difficult to reach my goal if I only lose 1 pound every week. So let's see how well I followed my plan:
Eat only at the table? not so good. I... Read more

Just wanted to give a brief update. I've decided to adjust my food choices, eating more protein and good fats, and much less carbs. So I have eggs, bacon, and strawberries for breakfast instead of oatmeal or Kashi cereal.
It almost scares... Read more
Re-committed to the path I already know
Well, I've decided enough of this floundering around. I know what has worked for me in order to lose almost 80 pounds, so I just need to do what I did before instead of looking for some other miracle cure.
So today I started a commitment to... Read more
have you heard of carb cycling?
Just a quick one this morning. Not so good with the choices yesterday, over my calories again. It's because I've been seriously considering changing my eating drastically by starting a carb cycling program with ultra low carbs. I read about it a... Read more
