Did what I could do TODAY.
First of all, my SparkPeople commenters continue to amaze me with their unwavering support and positive encouragement. I would like to personally thank each one of you who have commented over the past couple of days. You guys make me feel like I... Read more
Focus on the journey, not the destination.
This morning, I actually got up and went to the gym. I can still hardly believe it. I ate pretty well today, too -- but could've done better. (I've been feeling guilty about eating two oatmeal raisin cookies at school today). But other than that... Read more
The only one who can beat me is me.
I've started a written weight loss journal. Today is "day one." I've set a couple of short-term weight loss goals, and a couple of personal goals. I've written down all of my measurements, weight, etc. I like having papers that I can just flip t... Read more
Little changes, nice changes.
I need some place to vent, so I use my journal. In my real life, I'm a very upbeat and happy person. In order to do that, I need to have some outlet to pour my frustrations into, so I don't end up taking it out on my loved ones, so I don't have ... Read more
I feel so invisible. Husband just doesn't really notice me. I feel like we get along "fine" -- but I feel like we're more like roommates who sleep in the same bed. The past little while, I've even been feeling awkward about sleeping in the same ... Read more
I basically have a sexless marriage.
I don't remember the last time Husband and I had sex. It's been quite a few months now. I don't remember the last time, because I didn't write it down on the calendar or anything. I know it had also bee... Read more
Ladies Night Out...and I still did well!
I've recently mentioned the co-workers/new friends I've been spending time with. Well, tonight we had another Ladies Night out. We went out to dinner, where we had a lot of laughs...and a cocktail. Then we did a little shopping, and we ended the... Read more
Last night, I had a dream that I was thin again. Just like I used to be.
I was in my bathroom, looking in my mirror, and all of a sudden in dawned on me that I was thin. My double chin was gone. My fat cheeks had changed into pretty cheekb... Read more
Things are still going well :)
Day Three included more success. I ate well and maintained a positive attitude...which is fairly easy to do when your dad sends you a random text first thing in the morning: "I just wanted to send you a smile :)" It made my whole day. I'm taking... Read more
A non-scale victory on Day Two!
Tonight was Daughter's very last musical performance with her middle school. I still can't believe the next performance we attend will be at the HIGH SCHOOL. Craziness. Anyway, Husband and I went, and two of his sisters came, all their girls, Hu... Read more
New friends, new goals, a new life.
I actually had a pretty good amount of motivation today. I stayed on my diet all day and even went to the gym for a little bit. I rode the bike for 15 minutes. I was happy about that. I had been talking to a co-worker, and she suggested setting ... Read more
It's a new dawn, it's a new day...
I'm not even really sure where to start. I just know I want to try again. Tomorrow is a new month, a new week, and a new chance to make good choices. I had a[nother] big heart-to-heart with myself tonight as I was sitting in my bubble bath. I've... Read more
Life sucks...partially anyway.
My FIL passed away a little over a week ago. He was one day shy of being a full month into his diagnosis when he died. I am still in a sort of shock over it. We had four (yes...FOUR) services last week. It was just sort of a relentless sadness; ... Read more
I'm unbelievably stressed, and I don't know what to do about it. I don't even really know where to begin.
To begin with, my FIL was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer a couple of weeks ago. He's going downhill fast. I have certainly ... Read more
