Keep on Tracking
Wednesday, October 12, 2016      4 comments

I do Weight Watchers and track on line. I also have a small notebook and each morning track my weight and whatever i eat during the day. For a while I tracked here on Spark to compare calories to points. I found I was eating 1200 or so calori... Read more
Back on Track
Monday, October 03, 2016      4 comments

I had a mini near catastrophe a bit over a week ago. I was afraid I was losing control and would eat myself back to obesity again but I am finding some coping mechanisms to manage that. Frankly I love to cook new things and I have been finding... Read more
Tricked Myself!

I had not two, but 3 days of eating far more than I should. Today I am back on track. I sat down last night and made a brief meal plan and then, since I had also been slacking on exercise, I decided that I would not eat breakfast until I had 1... Read more
Two Days?
Friday, September 23, 2016      6 comments

Yesterday I had a binge which is something that has not happened to me for over a month. I have to be ultra careful this time of year when the days are getting shorter since that seems to trigger the need to eat and sleep. I used to call it th... Read more
I Hope I Learned Something!

It would be so easy to fall back into those old habits and regain all the weight it took me nearly a year and a half to lose. Weight loss is not nearly as easy at my age as it was when I was a young mother with small children to keep me busy. ... Read more
Cupcake Challenge

Today was my turn to provide something to go with coffee after church. My daughter and granddaughter helped by making me dozens of elaborately decorated cupcakes. Think chocolate with fudge filling topped with Cookie Monster with a real cookie... Read more
And Goal!

I reached my goal at WW today! I was extra careful this week and weighed and measured everything and it finally paid off. I will keep on sticking with my lower points until I have a safe distance to my goal so I don't go over that and have to ... Read more
Heading Down!
Tuesday, August 23, 2016      3 comments

I lost another pound at my WW weigh in yesterday. I was hoping to get to my goal by the end of this month but I suspect it will be a few more weeks to get rid of 2 pounds for me. It has taken me 3 months to get rid of just over 5 pounds. I ad... Read more
The Long Wait!

I am so close to goal that I can taste it but the scale is not cooperating! I have increased my exercise, track, weigh and measure diligently and pray for patience! I expect that I will see a nice loss at some time since I am burning more calo... Read more
Bobbing Up and Down

Those 10 pound marks are really difficult for me to get past. I am not sure if it is physiological or psychological. I am very close to my goal weight at WW and can't seem to get past that last little hurdle and be eligible for free meetings a... Read more

Tomorrow is weigh in day at WW and I am hoping to be back to my pre camping trip weight. My goal for August will be to get to my goal and back to Lifetime status again. This time I intend to meet those monthly weigh in's and to keep tracking h... Read more
Post Camping Recovery
Wednesday, July 20, 2016      2 comments

I didn't do as well as I had hoped controlling my food intake at camp. It could have been worse though and the few pounds I saw on the scale are disappearing. It will take a few more days to get back to where I was and with any luck, make some... Read more
One Last Obstacle
Monday, July 11, 2016      4 comments

I am within 4 pounds of reaching my weight goal and this week is going to be a doozy as far as staying on track. First of all, I am going camping. I will be tempted by foods I love and try to avoid every day for 4 days. Solution: I have a... Read more
Determination and Patience
Friday, July 08, 2016      2 comments

My husband and son suspect I am not a patient person at heart although I do try my best to control that. I like things done "yesterday" and on my schedule. Losing the last few pounds is a real test for me. My clothes fit again for the most pa... Read more
Kale Konundrum (I know you don't spell it that way!)
Sunday, June 26, 2016      5 comments

A 10 pack of kale was an impulse buy this spring and it looked so healthy in the store that I brought it home to plant in my garden, Never mind that my first experience with kale was to discover that it does get those little green cabbage worms... Read more
