Mission: Zip up the dress

Sunday, September 21, 2014      6 comments

In just 13 days my son will get married. (It is not an overly happy time for me...long stressful story.) I finally found a dress Friday. It has been a difficult process for me, but I am happy to check that off my list. Now I need it to zip u... Read more

Getting back on track....

Saturday, January 25, 2014      4 comments

So after a month of feeling blah and eating junky, I am back on track for healthier eating and being. I cannot say I have been 100% on, but I certainly feel better than before and for that I am happy. I even went swimming for almost an hour to... Read more

Seeking consistency...

Saturday, January 11, 2014      4 comments

Has anyone seen mine? How about my willpower? That seems to be missing too. I thought I was doing good and had them both intact, but sadly I was wrong. What is the issue with me? I can go days and be on top of my game and then on thing push... Read more

Tough week

Thursday, August 08, 2013      9 comments

I have been like a whirlwind cleaning and purging my home of stuff the last two days. The stuff that I have accumulated is overwhelming and this cleaning is long overdue. While the two rooms I have concentrated on are not finished yet, they a... Read more

On January 7th of this year I entered into the Biggest Loser competition at work. Determined to do something this time (I only lost a few pounds the last time we did it), I stuck to good eating habits and tried hard. I have a bad habit of plat... Read more

I don't know my own strength

Sunday, April 14, 2013      7 comments

So today really tried me for making good choices. I attended a fashion show for my women's club. The brunch had a good share of protein choices, which I was very thankful for. It also had the typical carb fair. The waffles with whipped cream... Read more

Emotional Eater no more!

Monday, March 04, 2013      5 comments

I think I have finally turned a corner on my emotional eating. In the past I have always reached for food to "feed" the stress in my life. It's probably what contributed to the major part of my weight gain. I think having lost the 50 lbs thi... Read more

Today is my last day of winter vacation and I was reflecting on all I did this week. WOW was I busy! Here's a rundown: trip (bought new dresses in the misses department in smaller size!!!), mall trip (bought new tv s... Read more

So close!

Saturday, October 27, 2012      6 comments

My original goal when I started at the weight loss clinic was to see under 200. This morning I weighed myself and was at 203.3! I have come so close, and then I go out and eat a damn chocolate bar and some chips. I am my own worst enemy. I h... Read more

Back in January I was at my women's club monthly meeting. The guest speaker that evening was a young woman from the American Cancer Society. She was there to discuss having the Relay For Life come to our town. I have participated in Relay For... Read more

New steps towards better health

Sunday, February 12, 2012      7 comments

This past fall my doctor recommended I see a weight management specialist. I put off calling for a while. On Tuesday, I had my consultation. I guess I was nervous because my blood pressure was out of control. I spent quite a bit of time talk... Read more

I recently was walking with friends and discussed how I have always been propelled by the naysayers and have accomplished great things in my life after someone said I couldn't. I soon will be graduating with an advanced college degree and am lo... Read more

Trying to get back on track

Monday, February 21, 2011      5 comments

After what seems like forever (but more like four weeks), I have made it back to the gym. I was so consistent for a long time, but I know that when things get hectic, I have to start letting go of things. The gym was the "thing" this past time... Read more

Seeing and feeling results

Wednesday, August 04, 2010      8 comments

The last few weeks I have seen little to no change on the scale. I know I was working hard and getting results because I could see it on my body and in my clothes. But for some reason I still need that darn number to move down. Two weeks ago ... Read more
