Happy Birthday to me!
Today has been my 53rd birthday. It was a pretty average day. I'm still dealing with chronic pain. But I've received some help that I think will get me where I want to be, health-wise.
So I have turned back to my good friend that I haven... Read more
Let's Get Physical
Even though it's only mid-morning, today is AWESOME!:-)
Today I woke up without the medical condition affecting me - yay! I only have about 3 days per month like that, so I'll take it:-) Of course, it might hit later, but that's okay...

I realized last night that I've been depressed the past couple of days. I really, really hate to feel that way - I try very hard to be positive. So it makes it something I don't want to see in myself when I get depressed.
I know it's a co... Read more
I am writing this blog to apologize to my fellow Starfish. It has been so unusually cold here the past few weeks, and especially last week, that I hibernated. There - I said it. I am so sorry that I wasn't here to support yall last week - thi... Read more
The Lifestyle I was Born to Live - Take Two
I took some time to type in a blog about how I'm not "starting over" - again - but how I'm living the lifestyle I was born to - and it got lost! So here goes, again:-)
I don't feel like trying to re-do what I had written, so the bottom lin... Read more
WOW - how time flies!
...even when you're not having fun:)
I can't believe it's been almost 4 months since I've sparked. I'm actually on a medical leave of absence from work. I'm having migraines daily. Ugh. Today is the first day in over 2 months that I hav... Read more
I am DEFINITELY a Stress Eater!
I did so well last week - and the scale rewarded me:-) (Not that it always will, but it sure was nice:-)
Today (and some yesterday) I'm really, really craving bad stuff. Just anything.
I start a class tonight, 28 years after I comple... Read more
Desserts and Other Sweets
I weighed myself today. Not down, but at least not up:-) I was disappointed - my goal is to lose 50 pounds this year, and I am determined to do so!
I said so to my DH, and he said "well, then, you'll need to stay away from the desserts". ... Read more
I've not been doing so well the past few days - first, some migraines, then I haven't been sleeping well. Both "help" (!) me make ill-advised choices.
I have oral surgery tomorrow morning. I think I'll take advantage of that! If it's lik... Read more
make a big difference. That's what I'm trying to focus on. Each time I have a decision to make, I can choose health or not. Not that I'm going to be perfect. But I WILL choose health! I AM choosing health!
I've been reading a lot of th... Read more
I'm tired of not getting where I want to go. I want to be a SUCCESS story! I want to have the awesome before and after pictures that so many people on SP have.
I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired.
I'm over being fat.
It's... Read more
Progress in the Mind
I've been MIA lately from SparkPeople, but not from trying to figure out how to make my way along this journey to a healthier "me".
The past year has been full of sicknesses. My surgeon told my DH after my surgery last year that my defen... Read more
It's me starting .... again!
I feel like I've just been "playing" around with losing weight. I lose my focus and get distracted so easily.
A week ago, my department at work went to a local park for a picnic. Someone took pictures and copied them onto a directory we a... Read more
I've been thinking recently about the fact that we don't typically want to lose weight just for the sake of losing weight, but because losing the weight means we get to DO something.
So I've been thinking about what I want to do when I reac... Read more
I've been stressed for years because I think that I have to learn to eat a whole "new" way. Since I'm someone for whom trying new foods is almost a phobia, perhaps you can understand why.
However, eating what I do now - just less of it - i... Read more
