Moving Forward

Thursday, May 05, 2011      5 comments

I am getting back into swimming again. It is easier on my back and very relaxing. My back is slowly improving but I always get very apprehensive when I have a bout of back pain. I don't want any more surgeries and I don't want to be disabled.... Read more

Tuesday, April 26, 2011      13 comments

After almost 2 years I finally made the decision to get rid of all my 20 to 26 size clothing. I have been hanging on to it "just in case". At size 14, I have made the decision that I won't go back to size 20 or over 200 lbs. It has been reall... Read more

I am eating compulsively at least one day a week for about 3 weeks now. Don't know why. I get right back on the healthy eating and haven't gained weight, but I see the mind set in the distance. Scary. I feel bloated and uncomfortable after I... Read more

I weighed 179 this morning. That means I am 9 pounds from the goal I set a year and a half ago. I feel truly blessed. I have worked hard and consistently to achieve this goal. I earned it and I rejoice in it. Good health and fitness are mos... Read more

It's Working!

For the last week I have been eating at the low end of my calorie range (about 1250 cal) and getting in a minimum of 10,000 steps a day by doing several "pocket walks" daily as well as continuing my walk/jog program. Sounds simple, right? Well... Read more

New Strategy - Attitude Adjustment

Wednesday, March 02, 2011      7 comments

I have been trying different things to get off my plateau and so far no breakthroughs. Although I must say I am staying between 183 and 185 instead of 188. So that's a good thing. I know I am exercising enough and with enough varied activitie... Read more

I am keeping a weight between 183 and 187 right now. I seem to bounce around those numbers with no rhyme or reason. I can eat well and exercise well all week and see 187 on the scale. On the other hand, I can eat too many calories and not bur... Read more

I went to a friend's Birthday Party yesterday, so we didn't go to the cabin for the weekend. Today was all mine. So what did I do! I got up late. Sparked. Then I made a vegetable omelet which I don't usually do. I took my dog for a 2... Read more

I've had a good January and I've learned some things about myself. Since I've been at the same weight for several months, I decided to shake things up a little so I joined 2 challenges. I joined the 5% Winter Challenge and was a proud Teddy Be... Read more
