I did gain over the holidays. Today's weight was back to my pre-Thanksgiving weight. I have posted this inspiration on my frig: "It's not what you eat between Christmas and New Years that matters, it's what you eat between New Years and ... Read more

I am challenging myself to lose weight by New Year's day. Why not lose weight? Even if I only lose a half a pound, at least I will not have gained. I did well with the Thanksgiving food and want to continue. Who's with me on this? S... Read more

Return from Traveling

Friday, October 24, 2014      1 comments

A quick 9 day trip from home in Florida to Illinois and back left me 2.4 lbs heavier. Some of it of course is from not tracking and poor choices, but also some is water weight from driving/sitting for hours. So today I am wearing my pedometer ... Read more

Wednesday, September 24, 2014      1 comments

It may be official fall, but it's hot here in south central Florida. Today so far I have finished an aerobic DVD, planted, transplanted and pruned landscaping. I think I've sweat enough for one day. Well maybe more this evening. Read more

Hungry Day

Saturday, September 20, 2014      1 comments

I have been hungry since waking today. It's not emotional or boredom. I did not eat all the food in my tracker yesterday as I was not hungry and it seemed silly to eat it. Now I am paying the price. I shall exercise this afternoon, that usua... Read more

No Snacks!

Tuesday, September 09, 2014      3 comments

Today I will begin a period of no snacks, only 3 squares a day. I used to subscribe to the idea that 5 or 6 small meals was best but for me it led to grazing all day. This new plan may last a week or two until I feel in better control. I hope... Read more

What a struggle

Friday, August 15, 2014      1 comments

I am struggling to lose the 9 lb I gained over the last several months. I know, I know that's not a lot but I lose very slowly. For several weeks now I have stayed within my calorie allowance and exercised regularly with walking, aerobic walki... Read more

Today's a blessing

Sunday, September 29, 2013      1 comments

Yesterday I was in a funk; most likely because I'd eaten a lot of sugar the evening before. My body was not happy with me. Today is a blessing. The air is fairly cool; at least not hot yet. Sunny with a soft breeze and quiet except for the... Read more

We did some heavy cleaning today in the kitchen, living room and dining room. The worst was pulling out the kitchen appliances; what a mess. I am a messy cook! Baseboards washed, tile floors cleaned, etc etc. I got some good exercise!... Read more

Doctor Interest

Sunday, April 28, 2013      1 comments

I mentioned SP to my new doctor last week and he was unaware of it. When I explained all the articles on health, nutrition and well being and that I can track my food, exercise and weight and even optional nutrient tracking, he was very interes... Read more
