I found the part of my brain that knows the truth

Friday, December 20, 2013      2 comments

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

There is a plan inside my head somewhere

Sunday, December 15, 2013      3 comments

Today is a good day to record some thoughts. I've been struggling with my eating choices for several months. There are several reasons all having to do with life. And its pointless to list them all, because even though they are different issues ... Read more

Adding daily reminders to my life

Sunday, September 01, 2013      4 comments

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

Sunday, July 21, 2013      6 comments

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

Monday, June 17, 2013      1 comments

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. He... Read more

Onward to week 2!

Wednesday, June 12, 2013      4 comments

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

I have to write about my goals and plans for BLC 22, which started today. My main goal is to replace my emotional eating habits with better choices. I will eat only at mealtimes while sitting at the table. I will use distraction, meditation... Read more

A visit, a NSV, and determination to suceed

Sunday, June 02, 2013      3 comments

I have the habit of writing my blog, and then going back and choosing the title. I don't always know what I'm going to write until after its done. I know this time I want to share some recent insights. I continue to struggle with emotional ... Read more

Happy with progress this week, even without feedback from the scale

Wednesday, May 08, 2013      4 comments

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

Sunday, May 05, 2013      7 comments

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?

Saturday, May 04, 2013      4 comments

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

the one that got away.

Thursday, May 02, 2013      8 comments

Well, I just wrote a beautiful blog entry about acknowledging my emotions and learning to deal with them without food. I somehow erased it, and don't have time to write it again.. But it is in my head, so I'll think about it and make an eff... Read more

But I like cake!

Tuesday, April 30, 2013      3 comments

As I reflect on the day, there is lots to be happy about. Work went well. I drove home with less traffic than what I drove to work in and snacked on celery I had packed. Dinner was a potluck a little later than we usually eat. I made a pan of en... Read more
