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