4/7/2017: Sharing a Milestone in Life
Tomorrow my oldest will turn 30. I really hadn't thought about how it would affect me. I'm remembering things that I haven't thought about in years - I was already at the hospital 30 years ago and was in labor for 24+ hours. I won't go into a... Read more

Mindful Moderation, 2/25/2017
Here's my dot calendar:
I haven't lost any more weight, but I do know that sometimes I won't lose for a while and then it will be a very nice l... Read more
Mindful Moderation, Early for 2/18/2017
I have only had green dots on my dot calendar since the weekend. It feels good to make choices that help my body feel better.
It's also interesting to follow the season of seasonal freggies. I enjoyed a delicious serving of baked spa... Read more
Mindful Moderation, Late for 2/11/2017
I'm later than I intended for my blog update on my year of Mindful Moderation. I intend to do them over the weekends, but this past weekend didn't allow. Perhaps two days later is still moderation.
My last official weigh-in showed a ... Read more
Mindful Moderation, 2/4/2017
It's been five weeks and I have lost just over 6#! Success! I knew I was feeling better, and my jeans weren't quite so tight to zip and those 6# are the low-cal icing on the cake! LOL!
I wrote a blog earlier in the year explaining my ... Read more
Mindful Moderation, 1/29/2017
I am still pleased with my efforts toward being mindfully moderate.
I am still down just over 5#. My WI yesterday was up a bit, but it was back down today, and it had been even a bit lower earlier in the week. Slow progress is still ... Read more
Mindful Moderation after Week 2
This is the end of week 2 with my Mindful Moderation theme.
I am down just over 5#. I am happy with that. This is over a 3 week period, and of course, I showed a bigger loss at the beginning than yesterday, but 5# over three weeks is... Read more
Mindful Moderation after Week 1
My mindful moderation is working well for me. I have been surprised with a 10K buzz on the fitbit a couple of days this week. I am not setting the 10K as a "gotta have" goal because I cannot depend on my health concerns cooperating, but what I... Read more
As I reflect on my health journey since I found Sparkpeople, I find that that there have been times that I became what was probably too harsh in my thinking. For example, when I found I really COULD walk 10K per day, I had to do it every day. ... Read more
New Year, New Start
I would have to say that I did not finish 2016 in a good, healthy way. From midsummer on, I struggled as many small changes occurred in my life. My healthy choices did not follow along with the life changes. My clothing got tighter, my feet/l... Read more
I've been on a rollercoaster - a slow rollercoaster, but a rollercoaster, nevertheless, ever since I hit goal weight 3?4? years ago.
That slow yet steady progress back up the scale has caused a regain of 30#. I changed my sparkname a cou... Read more
Adjusting My Plan
I keep going back and forth with the same 8 - 10 pounds...lose them, sometimes as much as 3# at a time, and then relax, not walk as much, not eat as well, and they go back on. I need to lose more than that, but this is where I have been for the... Read more

2/20/16 and still no blog about yearly goals
I thought about doing my usual yearly goals blog back in late November - and then in December - and then in January - and you can see what the date is today in my title.
I'm still not really sure why I didn't, just as I'm not sure why I don... Read more
