How many times do I need to "start over". Maybe it's not really starting over, but more of giving myself a good swift kick to jump start my committment. As many times as I've lost and regained some of the same pounds, I haven't gotten up to my... Read more

Back to Basics

Thursday, May 01, 2008      0 comments

I hate the "up and downs" of trying to get healthy! I just wasn't seeing any movement on the scales and I decided that I needed to start some of the steps that were in Fast Break all over. I've been weighing and measuring my food this we... Read more

The Scale Is Not the Only Measure!

Saturday, September 01, 2007      2 comments

Oh, my aching back! Somehow, I did something to cause a muscle spasm in my back and it really knocked me down. It took almost two weeks before I was able to move without discomfort or out and out pain! I'm finally feeling better, but haven't ... Read more

Getting Back on Track

Saturday, May 19, 2007      1 comments

All that stress caused me to slip. I was going back to some of my old eating habits - searching the kitchen for something to eat even though I wasn't really hungry. Good thing that my lifestyle change topic was on emotional eating. I guess st... Read more

Stressful week

Tuesday, May 15, 2007      0 comments

I've had a very stressful week and it was hard to keep my mindless eating under control! Difficult to get the exercise in with runs to the hospital to visit my uncle who is failing fast. He's in Hospice now and it won't be much longer. I've s... Read more
