Tuesday, May 04, 2010      16 comments

I started this program at 270 pounds with a shape like a barrel. In the last 10 months I have lost 68 pounds and lots of inches. I now am shaped like a woman and I like it. I have changed my lifestyle and my eating habits and feel comfortable... Read more

Without DH around, I can do whatever I want. I have been very busy and active this week so today I am going to stay home and do mundane things. I have put the laundry on and am cleaning the fridge one shelf at a time. I cleaned the utility ro... Read more

Yesterday I walked for about 4 miles up the Chataqua (sp?) Trail in Boulder with a friend. It was sunny, rainy, snowy and hailed all in the course of our 2 hour hike. We had a great time and came back bubbling. We met up with 2 other frie... Read more

I had 2 high calorie days in a row...Darn it! I was feeling a little discouraged. I haven't slipped 2 days in a row before. But I read a great article on Spark - 1 Step Back, 2 steps Forward. So I will move on today - within my calorie range.... Read more

Pedometer Thoughts
Tuesday, April 27, 2010      3 comments

I have lost my trusty pedometer. It is a great pedometer-an Omron. I looked all over to find a good pedometer for me. It is large, has a safety clip, and I can wear it at my waist or in my pocket. Since I got it I have worn it every day and f... Read more

The race was great. Weather was cold and windy -- especially since we walked all around the periphery of a lake. DH was supposed to walk with me, but he caught the competitive spirit and walked full out..I couldn't keep up with him. He said h... Read more

Tomorrow is the Mud Hen 5K. I'm excited but worried too. It is pouring, and I mean pouring. My DH and his friend went out to walk at 10 like they do every day and he came back soaked. Really soaked. Shoes, socks, raincoat, hat, and even his... Read more
This is Starting to Feel Normal!

After 9 months of increasing my physical activity and changing my eating habits, I have to say that this is beginning to feel like the norm. I don't have to think as much about my choices of food. My appetite is now directing me towards health... Read more
Keeping it Moderate!

I've backed down on my exercise and activity a little this week. First of all, the training plan I have for walking the 5k on Saturday has me only walking 30 min a day this week so I am following it. Second, the ITB Syndrome is getting a littl... Read more

Tonight DH and I went out to Applebee's for his birthday dinner. My treat! I got the WW chicken dijon with portabello mushrooms, a glass of white wine and a hot fudge shooter. I really splurged for 828 calories for dinner, but only 1648 for t... Read more
