Saturday, February 08, 2014      5 comments

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... ... Read more

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

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

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

Monday, January 14, 2013      6 comments

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

Taking Advantage

Wednesday, January 09, 2013      3 comments

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

Little Decisions...

Wednesday, January 02, 2013      3 comments

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

Tuesday, December 04, 2012      1 comments

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

Life Goals

Monday, September 24, 2012      1 comments

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

Eating Changes

Monday, September 03, 2012      4 comments

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

Second Prong

Saturday, September 01, 2012      3 comments

When I went to the doctor on Monday, we had 3 things that we looked at. The first is to fix my headaches and I'm pretty sure I already blogged about that. The second is a pain I've been having in my abdomen, apparently where the gallbladde... Read more
