Fast Food

Tuesday, October 20, 2009      6 comments

I've pretty much given up on fast food. I made a pact that if I wanted fast food, I would have to walk to get it. I have Rally's, McDs, Burger King, Taco Bell, and Wendy's about a mile walk. I haven't walked to any of them yet so I haven't ha... Read more

Turbo Atkins update

Monday, October 19, 2009      2 comments

I've done the Turbo Atkins for 2 days and have lost 5 pounds. Of course, I had gained those 5 pounds during 5 days of naughtiness. I'm now where I started from. I'm doing great and except for the first day of the "runs," I'm feeling energetic... Read more

Group Walking

Saturday, October 17, 2009      7 comments

I did a first today. I met other people in my area and we walked for 45 minutes. That's a first for me. I have never gone into a new environment by myself and I've never walked with anyone else. I'm not social and this was very hard for me. ... Read more

Turbo Atkins

Friday, October 16, 2009      8 comments

Before you yell "NO!" I want you to know that I'm very aware of the Atkins Diet. That's the only way my DH will eat. He's been on it forever and my father was on it 40 years ago before it was a fad. My DH is overweight but likes the Atkins di... Read more

Tongue in cheek

Thursday, October 15, 2009      2 comments

My blog yesterday was written sort of tongue in cheek. But, people took me seriously and wrote back worried and with lots of info. And you know, I guess I needed it. All the info I got was useful. At first, I was upset that people took it se... Read more

Relevance of Spark People

Wednesday, October 14, 2009      7 comments

My computer crashed about 5 days ago and I have been bereft. I just got a new one today. However, the previous 5 days without SP has been horrid. I have no cotrol. Since I couldn't (well, I guess I could have) track points, it meant I didn't... Read more

Got fat eating crap

Thursday, October 08, 2009      4 comments

I use to work for my father. The business was way out in the country and I was usually the only one in the office. All my work was done by 11:00 and the rest of the day was for answering telephones. I was all alone and lonely. My father used... Read more

Evening out

Wednesday, October 07, 2009      2 comments

I asked my grandson this a.m. to give me something to blog about and he said "pie." I said great! but started thinking. And I came up with the idea of evening out food. I will explain, but I did this all my life. As an adult, I found out my ... Read more

Phat is out, sick is in!

Tuesday, October 06, 2009      2 comments

While riding with my grandson he said, "Look at that sick car!" I quickly glanced, expecting to see a wreck. I told him I didn't see a clunker or wrecked car. He said (patiently) that sick meant cool or good or groovy or whatever. I asked h... Read more

Weather and exercise

Monday, October 05, 2009      4 comments

Isn't it amazing what a change in weather can do to make you feel more (or less) like exercising? We've had high 90s and 100s all summer and I did NOT feel like exercising. However, I got up at 5:30 a.m. every day and went for a walk. It was ... Read more

Because is not an answer

Friday, October 02, 2009      3 comments

I asked my preteen grandson a question and he answered "because." How many times has a child, spouse, or friend answered because or just because. I told him that because wasn't a complete answer. It gave me no idea of what the answer was. He... Read more

If you don't post every day

Thursday, October 01, 2009      1 comments

I have read so many entries about people who get too busy to post--either food or exercise. And you know what happens? They don't eat right or exercise. Duh! You have to keep up the posting to keep yourself honest. I found this out. When w... Read more


Wednesday, September 30, 2009      4 comments

When I can't think of anything appropriate or clever, I talk about the weather. It was darn right cold this early, early a.m. I'm going to have to start wearing longer pants since I'm used to pedal pushers (or whatever they're called now). I ... Read more

No brain storm

Monday, September 28, 2009      1 comments

I have no big brain storm idea for today's blog so I'll write about the weather. It's craaaaazy! My DH was in Lake Tahoe this weekend and he said the weather was gorgeous. However, forecasters said it would snow on Wed. Fall? Our weather in... Read more


Sunday, September 27, 2009      7 comments

Am I cheating? I haven't said anything but I've had a gastric bypass. It was quite a long time ago. But I've seen people on SP using Weight Watchers, Pritikin, South Beach, so I guess we all can have our own things. The doctor told me the by... Read more
