I saw my MD yesterday and by her scale I have lost 25 pounds. It was 4 pounds more lost than by my scale. She and I were both very happy. I don't think my scale is as accurate because it bounces all over the place and never really settles on ... Read more

After a restful, but productive weekend, I guess I'm ready for the week to start. I am not aching any more so that's good. My daughter called and says she is loving her new job although it is exhausting. She hasn't moved yet, she has 3 months... Read more

Rough Time

Sunday, September 13, 2009      6 comments

I did it again. I don't know what it'll take to learn. I was feeling great Friday and had lots of energy and enthusiasm so I overdid the exercise. It was fun but I have paid for it yesterday and today. My back and left leg are killing me. I... Read more

Yesterday was an active, fun day. I used the machines at our rec center, swam for 30 minutes then joined in on a Lazy River water aerobices class. I had planned on riding my bike later, but I was wiped out. Sometimes I have trouble going to e... Read more

Fun with Veggies!

When I got home from work last night I spent a little time on SP. I read a Healthy Lifestyle blog about vegetables. The article was about how to make vegetables tolerable for people who don't like them. I love vegetables and don't mind eating ... Read more

Pedometer Search

Thursday, September 10, 2009      4 comments

In the 2 months I've been on Spark People I've lost 2 pedometers (cheapies) so I decided to find a better pedometer. I went to the local sports store after work and they only had 1 brand so I came home and searched the internet and Read more

The Challenge of Being Alone

My DH is leaving this am for a week hiking in Utah with his brother. They've been doing this for about 3 years now. I'm really happy that he is healthy and active enough to do this and that he has such a good relationship with his brother. My... Read more

What Size am I?

Tuesday, September 08, 2009      5 comments

Its time to start another week and continue on with my journey. I was disappointed with my picture showing my 20 lb weight loss. I truly didn't "see" my size until I looked at the picture. I guess I feel smaller than I am now that I am losing... Read more

We're back from the cabin. Had a great weekend! Only went over calories x 1 on Friday. We hiked a lot and I will be adding a couple of pictures to my gallery later. I missed my spark. Sure wish we had internet in the mountains!... Read more

I had a great day yesterday. When I went to the Rec Center to swim, I found out that it was closed for a week for annual maintenence. I stopped for a second, then remembered that the old city pool was available at the North end of town--so off... Read more

I did it! I reached my first 20 lb goal. I am happy and proud. I have learned so much along the way. As a person who has been overweight and dieted since she was a child and as an RN I thought I knew it all about losing weight. I may have k... Read more

Beautiful Weekend

Sunday, August 30, 2009      1 comments

Had a wonderful weekend. Went on 2 hikes. The 2nd had a 200 feet elevation rise - which is a lot for me and I did well. I was a little out of breath (we're at 8,000 feet and I have asthma) but my legs were strong and my nordic walking poles r... Read more
