My "OMG - that's not me!" photo AND my squooshy flight. Get serious, already.

Monday, May 31, 2010      3 comments

Photos - many of us who have weight to lose don't like them. If we have a lot of weight to lose, we like them even less. I'm usually ok about getting a photo taken. I think I know how to hide behind someone, how to stand, push the tongue to t... Read more

slow start but building momentum!

Wednesday, May 19, 2010      1 comments

I've lost a few pounds, maintained, gained a few pounds, lost those few pounds. I read that people start off strong and then start to taper off or struggle. I feel like the beginning is the hardest for me. Once I start to see loss, it makes f... Read more

fairly decent choices today

Tuesday, May 18, 2010      0 comments

I went to McDonalds for lunch today - a quick lunch. Instead of ordering a burger, I had a santa fe chicken salad. For dinner, instead of having regular pizza at a birthday dinner, I opted for veggie delite. I had cheese cake, but only half a... Read more

no milkshake for me! Hooray!

Tuesday, May 18, 2010      2 comments

This evening, we stopped at a fastfood place for my bf to get a LARGE milkshake. Guess what I got? An icetea. Wow. That was a huge deal for me because sweets are my downfall - oh yeah - along with pizza and chips. No shake for me. I'm off ... Read more

weekend

Sunday, May 02, 2010      0 comments

Rainy weekend. I walked a tiny bit at the mall. I've been wearing a pedometer for part of the last week. I get about 5,000 steps. I know the goal is 10,000 but I'll work on that. No weight loss but making small changes.... Read more

clean up and replacement

Sunday, February 28, 2010      1 comments

Wow - what a mess and pain in the butt. Working with insurance adjusters, finding contractors for bids, getting estimates for carpet and flooring, getting my son to finish cleaning up the room that used to be his bedroom... And then I got sick... Read more

Sewage Overflow into the basement

Tuesday, February 16, 2010      1 comments

I am STILL staying where I was weight-wise. I promised to work on my health and make myself a priority. Well - life happens, doesn't it? And it doesn't always include me as a priority. Over the weekend while I was enjoying a nice weekend with... Read more

Holding steady and ready to continue.

Sunday, February 07, 2010      0 comments

I've mentioned that I have been having a few health problems. Nothing serious, good to know - so I continue. A trip to Vegas is in my near future so I'd like to drop 3 lbs. this week - before Valentine's Day and then another 7 lbs by March 10.... Read more

Right here. Right now.

Friday, January 22, 2010      0 comments

I learned something today. I am one of those people who get anxious and overwhelmed thinking about how difficult things COULD be in the near future. Someone gave me the advice today to take a deep breath, or a few deep breaths, take a drink of... Read more

speed bump!

Thursday, January 21, 2010      1 comments

So I've run into a little speed bump on this recent journey. The diagnosis of depression, stress, being overwhelmed and over-worked! Well - yeah - but I've always known that. LOL But I was really struggling with some things this time as well ... Read more

4 lbs - woo hoo!

Saturday, January 09, 2010      0 comments

The week wasn't too difficult. I did pretty well at work with my meal plan. It's right after work until dinner that has always been my difficult time. String cheese is a satisfying snack. It's Saturday and I'm relaxing watching a Lifetime mov... Read more

Back to work after vacation!

Monday, January 04, 2010      1 comments

Today was a great day for food choices. I exercised a bit with my dog - running, throwing the ball (ok, she runs, I throw) but I still see it as an activity. I'm bending and throwing and need to chase her sometimes - I consider it activity. I... Read more

ready, set....go!

Saturday, January 02, 2010      0 comments

And today I began making some small changes. I'm posting my reasons for weight loss around the house and in my purse. I drank more water today and didn't eat any potato chips! Over the summer I lost 20 lbs just not eating fries or potato chip... Read more

Reflecting upon but not living in the past

Friday, January 01, 2010      0 comments

Upon embarking on this familiar journey, I reflect on everything I've done in the past to lose weight: weight loss pills when I was 10 (given to me by my mother), that famous doctor's low carb diet when I was 11 (again - mother), a variety of o... Read more

Not a Resolution but a Personal Goal

Thursday, December 31, 2009      10 comments

Well I've decided to start blogging. I just read a blog entry by Dannilynn1. It was amazing. In a year, she has lost 100 lbs. My goal is to lose 50 lbs by June and then when I get there, I'll set another weight-loss goal. 100 lbs would be ... Read more
