Gratitude seems to be my theme this weekend! I am so grateful to my husband. He is so supportive about this journey I am taking, although he has loved me no matter what shape I have been. He has always been easy to cook for, or not! Not pick... Read more

Lazy - Good or Bad Idea?
Friday, May 24, 2013      7 comments

I have today off and my husband doesn't. That is generally good news (not that I don't love him dearly). The day is mine. What to do? There is tons of housework, and I mean tons, because I have let it go the last 2 weeks. With the exception... Read more
Changes - Daily vs. Longterm
Thursday, May 23, 2013      4 comments

It occurred to me today that I have been focusing way too much on the daily weigh-in on the scale. I have been facing forward, but keeping my eyes looking at the ground. Instead, think about the changes I am going to see in the future, maybe w... Read more

No one has ever described me as patient. I tend to jump in to whatever, work hard, and be rewarded immediately. Well, I jumped into SP. I am working hard, both food choice and working out. There's no immediate reward! This is odd for me to ... Read more

I Love Spring! I Hate Winter!
Monday, May 20, 2013      2 comments

I love spring, but I hate the winter. My husband suggested the other day that I wouldn't love spring so much if I didn't have to go through winter to get there. Hmmmm.... Is there a connection? Usually I can make a connection to my weight lo... Read more
Slow as Molasses!
Sunday, May 19, 2013      10 comments

I know that this is a common saying, but the only person I ever heard use it was my grandmother. It has special meaning for me since I watched her bake the best molasses cookies and noticed how much slower molasses came out of the bottle than m... Read more
2200 Calories!
Saturday, May 18, 2013      3 comments

Sorry, I am still obsessing over my pizza "moments" last night. Just for the heck of it, I added up the calories of what I would have eaten if I had gone for it. I usually eat 4 pieces of pizza, 6 wings, and 24 Oz. of Pepsi divided between 2 m... Read more

Thank heavens Spark People was back online this evening! Very rough week ending with an hour and 15 minute summative assessment with 3 administrators. Have been having a huge craving for pizza, wings, and Pepsi (they all go together for me). ... Read more
One of Those Days!

Stress is coming at me from everywhere! Wow, I forced myself to exercise and eat what I had planned, but, boy, it's hard to stay focused on this part of my life when the rest of it became crazy! After seeing this, I understand why I overeat wh... Read more
A Path, Not a Destination

I absolutely love this quote. The path is not the destination. Traveling on this path makes you a stronger person. While I have a destination in mind, I am trying to li... Read more

. You might be asking what is this picture, and why? My favorite flowers, after hydrangeas, are tulips. Apparently, they are also the favorite flowers of deer. I planted o... Read more
Happy Mother's Day!

We have season's tickets to Broadway musicals here in our city. When we get them, we don't usually check the dates more than one at a time. Two weeks ago we realized that our last show was on Mother's Day. Today we are going to see Les Misera... Read more
Warning! ;)

To all those who live in the same type of weather area as I do, I apologize in advance. I have switched from my flannel sheets to regular sheets, put the snowbrush away yesterday, bought and hung 4 hanging plants, and, worst of all, discovered ... Read more
