I didn't want to walk but I did. I set aside 12 noon to walk on the treadmill, but decided I'd rather read, eat lunch, and sit in front of the fire. Then about 2:30, the sun came out and I couldn't stay inside. Got in a 35 min. walk. When I ... Read more

Took the gandbabies to a different playground. There's probably hundreds around here. While they played and chased each other, I walked the perimenter. The small playground was surrounded by a 3-foot high chain link fence and since there were... Read more

Playing Along Side the Grandbabies

Wednesday, January 12, 2011      3 comments

I took the grandbabies to a local park and let them play on the playground. While they were getting their exercise--oops, I mean having fun--I walked around the play area for 30 minutes. They got their exercise in and I got mine. It was a win... Read more

Tough 4-year-old

Tuesday, January 11, 2011      2 comments

My two grandchildren and I go for daily walks when I have them. It's only 20 or 25 minutes but it can be a workout. The 4 year old rides a small bike. The 3 year old is pushed in something by me. The 4-year-old boy WANTS to lead the parade.... Read more

I finally have a loss. I haven't had a loss in over a year. It's 1 1/2 pounds! Woo hoo! I'm still 1/2 pound over what I started with but it's a start. I've been mixing things up and it seems to be working.... Read more

One-Pound Loss

Sunday, January 09, 2011      6 comments

Woo hoo! I might have a one pound loss this week. This is great news because my body has been in starvation mode and hanging onto every pound it can. I officially weigh tomorrow but I took a sneak preview this a.m. I am still up one pound f... Read more

I'm NOT starving. I'm eating three meals with snacks of fruit and veggies in between. I am full and hardly ever feel hungry. Yet, yesterday, I managed to eat 830 calories! I drink at least 8 glasses of water and have several cups of coffee. ... Read more

Since recommitting to SparkPeople, I am doing well. I'm exercising, getting my water, and eating healthily. I'm still not eating the full amount of calories recommended but I'm trying. After having gastric bypass many years ago, I just have t... Read more

Thursday, January 06, 2011      3 comments

No, I'm not making progress. But it is my hope and dream to be able to punch that button on the Huddle Walls. I try to congratulate everyone who makes progress. It will be my time soon. I haven't lost weight in 1 1/2 years, but I'm mixing th... Read more

People keep telling me that I'm an inspiration to them. But it is my words, not my deeds. I am able to help people with kind words that are meant to inspire them. But in 1 1/2 years, I have not lost any weight! I am exercising and eating hea... Read more

Not Too Good

Tuesday, January 04, 2011      5 comments

I recommitted but the last few days have not been too good. My DD, DH, and I took 5 of my grandchildren to the mountains for New Year's and a few days after. We were snowed in and had no electricity for two days. I didn't eat too bad, but it ... Read more

Start Now

Thursday, December 30, 2010      6 comments

I started my recommittment several days ago. Why? I read that you shouldn't set a specific date for getting healthy or losing weight. Don't say: AFter the New Year, after my birthday party, on Monday, two months before my cruise, etc. Just ... Read more

The 2nd day of my recommittment went well. I got everything in, plus 103 SPoints, except a walk. I DID get 1 hour of cardio but one of my quick starts is a daily walk. That means leaving the house, walking around the block or wherever, and re... Read more

Staring Over

Monday, December 27, 2010      4 comments

My intentions were not to ever have to start over. I have never quit SPeople and every day I try my best to get 100 points. However, I haven't lost any weight. In fact, I'm two pounds over my starting weight. However, this summer I did no e... Read more
