I'm not exactly sure how it happened. When I was losing weight two years ago I was very precise about everything I did. Everything was planned out, every day. From food/calorie intake to how much I was planning on working out that day to knowing... Read more
Two years ago I went on a mission, a mission to lose weight. I was 252 lbs when I started then, imagine that. I lost 60 lbs and felt great! I walked 2 or 3 miles a day, I did exercise dvd's, I walked home from the store one day and then still wa... Read more
Well, it has happened. The switch has been switched. I'm back on the wagon, but driving this time! Something clicked and this week I've been back to the way I want to be.
I've passed on the chocolate in the house. I've turned down treats. I ev... Read more
I'm tellin' ya. I fell off the wagon during the holidays and am having a heck of a time staying on it.
When I started this in April I lost 60 lbs in 6 months, now it's been 5 months and I'm staying the same.
The only one I can blame is mysel... Read more
You know, I keep giving myself pep talks but they don't seem to go anywhere.
When I first started on SP I was so 'good'. I could keep snacks in the house and every day I would have a 100 calorie snack in the afternoon and an apple in the mo... Read more
Every day I have to begin again. I can't count on yesterday to take me where I need to go, I need to go there today...and tomorrow...and the day after that.
The holidays funked me up pretty up and here it is over a month later and I'm still... Read more
Ok, I'm not giving up. I'm not giving up. I'm not giving up. My new mantra. The weight will fall off...won't it?
I have been fluctuating in the 190's since Oct 27th, when I reached my lowest weight of 191 lbs. It doesn't want to seem to go ... Read more
Ok, so it's been a bad (to say the least) 4 days. After the weigh in on Tuesday I said to myself and my family, "I'm taking the next 4 days off". And boy-howdy did I!!
I woke up 2 mornings in a row with I describe as a food hangover. I swe... Read more

Here we are, only a little more than a couple of weeks before Christmas and all I can think about is how I'm NOT going to gain any weight over the season. I actually lost a pound over Thanksgiving week (must have been that run my son made me go ... Read more

I got to 197 lbs a couple of weeks ago...yay for me, right? That's what you would think.
My parents came for a visit so I couldn't exercise. Then when they left I got sick so I didn't exercise.
Two weeks and up and down on the scale a... Read more
What a crazy week!!
My computer died last Friday so I couldn't tell anyone what was going on.
I couldn't even weigh in on Tuesday, which was a shame because I finally made it into the 100's...so I'll just wait and post this upcoming Tuesda... Read more
Well, last week (ending yesterday) was, without a doubt, my worst week since joining SP in April. I ate and did not exercise...horribly!!
Yes, I could beat myself up, and did quite a bit, but today I've decided to begin again, right from s... Read more
