In a sense, this has nothing to do with weight loss, but in a roundabout way, as always, it does, so bear with me.
It will be our 25th anniversary in about 2 months -- and DH's 50th birthday in about a month -- so a big year for us.

It's what I keep working on. I don't strength t... Read more
I'll tell ya, it's a good thing I'm not working because work would just get in the way of my exercising and food prep.
Yesterday I decided that if I was in the mood I'd go for an easy run in the morning. I'm not sure I was really in the mo... Read more
The abundance of fresh, healthy foods available in summer ought to mean that it's even easier to lose weight. The longer daylight hours (altho they are getting shorter, have you noticed? Wish I'd cottoned on to the beauty of a very-early morning... Read more
It's not just eating we have to be mindful of.
How many times do you just go thru the motions? Get to the gym, and just wanna get it over with? Just want to get your 10,000 steps in any way you can?
Well, yesterday I made sure my exerc... Read more
That's what I'm looking for. One of the things I read recently, which I shared, was to seek out mentors. People who have done what you want to do. Follow them, find out their secrets.
So I'm looking for a few good mentors. People who have b... Read more
I am very, very weary of gaining & losing the same few pounds. So what do you do when you're weary & really all you want to do is throw in the towel? You try to inspire someone else, of course!
So if you're in there with me, losing & gainin... Read more
Before I get to that -- well, I'll bet you already pretty much know what I'm going to say -- just wanted to thank everyone for the comments on my photos. Always appreciated. Probably would have helped if I'd thrown on a bra (sorry if that's TMI)... Read more
No, don't worry, I'm not being literal here. But how often I wished that I could just eat whatever I wanted -- even for just one meal. Even when I tell myself that I can, I rarely actually let myself. I tell myself I won't count points for a mea... Read more
That's what's inscribed on the small silver ring I bought at Target today. They have a variety of rings (online, too, apparently) and bracelets and necklaces inscribed with different words and sayings. This one spoke to me.

As usual, I'm going to ramble a bit today.
How often have you thought "I really don't care about why I'm overweight, I just want to get it off"?

One of the nice things about DH being gone is I can be on the computer when I want & for how long I want. Except when my folks were here, of course, because then my Dad hogs it for hours at a time. And shuts down the browser even when I tell him... Read more
That's what I told a spark buddy recently. Our bad weeks don't define us; our good weeks do. There WILL be bad weeks, it's just a fact of life.
Last week was definitely not one of my best. Nothing major, but just all those little things pil... Read more
