2 Weeks down - happy with myself
Tuesday, September 19, 2017      1 comments

I may not have followed the Wonderslim plan perfectly, but I have tracked everything, everyday for the past two weeks. I know when I have faltered, usually because of having a husband that loves to wave temptations in my face, and my own lack o... Read more
1 Week Down
Tuesday, September 12, 2017      2 comments

I did my best to follow the Wonderslim plan all week. It is not that I failed and cheated on anything, it is that I did not eat all my required meals. I work 3 days a week and 2 swings a week. I have never been able to get myself on a regular ... Read more
Day 1
Monday, September 04, 2017      3 comments

So excited to be trying something that seems to have a proven track record. Everyone at my church is doing the Medifast/Optavia plan and losing tons of weight. But I can't afford that. Also the idea of having someone that just needs to lose 10 p... Read more
Trying something new

I try so hard with meal portion and my mornings and afternoons work great, but then I get home and I get stressed, and I end up snacking on things I shouldn't and way to much of them. I know this is mindless stress eating, but I am having no lu... Read more

New Year, New (even better) Attitude
Wednesday, January 04, 2012      0 comments

Over the past couple of years I have tried many diet and exercise plans, but I always come back to Sparkpeople. This is the one that seems to work, so I don't know why I ever leave. I guess when I hear those too good to be true lines, I still ... Read more
Here's to the new and improved me. Nothing is going to stop me on this journey now.
Wednesday, March 09, 2011      6 comments

I have spent my life since Jr High using the sandbags on my chest as an excuse not to exercise. That is not to say I never wanted to exercise and do things, because oh I so did. It is just they always got in the way, so I would make excuses. ... Read more
Happy with who I am

I am so blessed in my life. I just completed a 13 week Divorce Care class at my church to help me deal with things. The most important thing I learned about myself was that, even though the hell I have been put through over the years, God has ... Read more
I feel sorry for the other woman.

She contacted me tonight and he is pulling all the same things on her that he has pulled on me when I tried to leave him over the years. Threatening to kill or hurt himself, etc. When she told me I contacted his sister that he is staying with ... Read more

Today has been one of the longest days of my life, but I learned so much about myself. I am proud of who i am. I filed for divorce this morning. It was hard to say goodbye to 21 years, but I did it without shedding a tear and it seemed like a... Read more

Scared of judgement
Tuesday, April 06, 2010      4 comments

I have realized in the last couple of days, that I am so afraid of being judged. The more I thought about it, the more I realized there is not an area in my life that I am not afraid of someone finding fault with me. I do not write status updat... Read more

Today I did something I would never have considered doing in the past. I asked for help. I admitted that I was having issues at work and sent out a letter to the other general managers in my district asking for there advice and suggestions on ... Read more
My revelation for this week
Saturday, February 13, 2010      6 comments

I had an revelation this week. I know what I need to do to lose weight, but I can only seem to have control over one of the issues. I seem to have the diet and exercise pretty much down. I was still not losing weight and certain days I wa... Read more
Wish the stress in life didn't have such an effect on my weight
Tuesday, October 20, 2009      8 comments

I have been doing a great job of going to the gym almost daily (only missed 4 days in the last month) and eating well. I am surprised with all the stress in my work life that I haven't gone on any binges and eaten anything I could get my hands ... Read more
