Happily making changes

Wednesday, April 27, 2016      14 comments

It is funny, just a few days ago I was complaining about my FIL and Step-dad and their HORRIBLE food choices that lead to major health complications, but my husband went over to my FIL's and spoke with him about making the changes that we know h... Read more

Getting back up

This journey, changing your life, making goals, keeping them, and everything, well, it is HARD. I have fallen and given up so many times. But I got back up. My daughter is 4. She is SUPER cute. (I'm not biased, she is freaking ... Read more

Is the scale evil?

Monday, April 25, 2016      13 comments

Oh, the scale. Some days I feel like it is my nemesis. Other days, my best friend. One thing I know, it is something I have to learn to live with, but more than that, I have to learn HOW. Here is the thing. I had a scale a... Read more

Take care of you, part 2

Friday, April 22, 2016      10 comments

Quick update on my FIL. He is still in the hospital, his infection was far worse than anything I've ever seen. It was vomit-inducing. They are actually taking him back for tests to see if he has GANGRENE. Yes, you read that correctly. ... Read more

What's in YOUR diet?

Thursday, April 21, 2016      11 comments

My diet (I use the regular term as everyone follows a diet, this is for my life, it isn't temporary) doesn't have a lot of "restrictions." My mind doesn't do well with restrictions. I do, however, have LIMITS. I'm an overeater. I have be... Read more

Take care of you.

I'm exhausted. I slept terribly, because my husband wasn't home most of the night. He was at the hospital with his dad. My father-in-law doesn't have great health. He isn't in terrible health, but he is a type 2 diabetic. His ... Read more

I can't believe myself. I'm laughing at how unbelievable I can be. This morning, even all weekend, I was feeling strong, successful with my weight loss. First, Friday, I was looking for a new pair of jeans. I needed a new pair,... Read more

Choices, life and moderation

Saturday, April 16, 2016      15 comments

Last night we went to a cookout/bonfire at a friend's home. I knew that burgers, brats or hotdogs would be the food option. So, I made healthy choices during the day in preparation. We got there and I was so hungry. I was already a little nerv... Read more

Life and annoyances

Friday, April 15, 2016      18 comments

Yesterday I typed out a huge blog and it didn't post, I couldn't get it back, and I refused to re-type it. SO that happened... ANNOYING! Honestly, I've been doing so well, that I forget some times that I've been struggling this month, it i... Read more

Moving on up... or down, actually!

Wednesday, April 13, 2016      13 comments

I admit, I SUCK at weighing in. I forget to do it first thing in the morning, I end up doing it after I eat, or drink or whatever, and because of that, it isn't really ever accurate, though I have trends. (This is better than it was before, be... Read more

Wow. What a weekend! We had a lot going on this weekend. Friday night was a pretty relaxing night at home because of all the things that we had to do the rest of the weekend. So we enjoyed each other and relaxed (after I got my workout i... Read more

New movement, interesting life

Wednesday, April 06, 2016      13 comments

Fitbit has some new features that are pretty cool. The new fitbit Alta (which I do not have) has little alerts to keep you moving every hour. I thought it was unnecessary. Now the fitbit app has a period of time during the day where ... Read more
