Joined a Team...

Wednesday, September 25, 2013      3 comments

The fat person in me freaked when I started to get "too small" for its comfort, so I put pounds back on and started the dreaded gainback of all I lost. I am focusing on new habits I am acquiring, and one of them is not totally giving up. I have... Read more

Manatee Me

Sunday, April 07, 2013      2 comments

Haven't blogged in a while, but have to vent my frustration over the Target dress ad flap. The store insists it was an innocent thing, but in my opinion it only shows how insensitive people are to the plight of people struggling with being over... Read more

Tuesday, December 11, 2012      9 comments

I remember wonderful road trips I used to go on to visit Amish territory in PA, IN, and OH. My favorite foods when visiting included fried chicken and shoo-fly pie. I recently came upon a book of Amish recipes, and that got me to thinking abou... Read more

I have been noticing a flood of emails from stores about fall fashions. I usually open them because I am curious as to what color trends are coming. But now i am thinking I should just start deleting the emails without opening them because the... Read more

The coeds are streaming into town for the start of school; today I went shopping for groceries and the store was full of them. Seems like the current fad is to wear very tight leggings. They all looked like Barbie dolls to me. Just thinking o... Read more

lots of challenges

I haven't blogged in a while, but hope to start up again. I have recently been faced with personal challenges (a good friend left me, plus other stuff I do not have much control over). Through it all I have been able to continue my exercise ro... Read more

basking in the glory of virtual 5k

Tuesday, July 03, 2012      3 comments

I am so proud of myself for completing the virtual 5k yesterday; was not sure I could do this distance after going so long without distance training. I guess there was some transfer from my usual spinning and elliptical work. I do treadmill wor... Read more

Friday, June 29, 2012      1 comments

I read the featured blog entry from the member who strayed from her eating goals, and it made me reflect on some positive changes I have noticed in my eating habits. These are huge changes for an almost lifetime binge eater like me. In the past... Read more

back home yet again

Monday, June 25, 2012      0 comments

Back from nine days of stressful travel- everything was high stress from the fully packed planes to the sad family events. I don't go home to where my family is very often, so I loaded up when there on nostalgic favorites- cream pies, donuts, c... Read more

feel so humiliated

Monday, June 11, 2012      12 comments

Yesterday I fainted at the gym after I felt extremely dizzy, nauseated, and had the worst headache in my life. It was a 90 degree day outside but I was clammy and in a cold sweat all the time. (The gym was nicely air conditioned.) My husband kne... Read more

A doctor noticed!

Friday, June 08, 2012      4 comments

I had an annual visit to one of my many doctors, and he did a quick calculation when he saw my chart. He praised me for my weight loss from a year ago to the day. Sure made my day! There is a different doctor I need to go to in a few months; ... Read more
