Ugh
Tuesday, May 22, 2012      5 comments

OK. So this week I gained .8 pounds. I know that's not a huge amount and that there are all kinds of reasons for fluctuations like this, but still... ugh. I'm down 9.8 overall so I'm OK with that -- not ecstatically happy, but OK. My Med... Read more

My friend and I both lost weight this week. She lost 4.4 pounds and I lost 4.6. I also hung out with my friend for dinner on Friday and she made salmon and fresh asparagus. She used no salt or pepper or butter on anything. I have only h... Read more
Medifast buddy update

My friend is doing Medifast and I'm following my own plan, which involves real food and tracking everything. I did WW many years ago and reached goal weight, so I'm also incorporating some of the stuff I learned there. I do some walking too, b... Read more
Medifast -- no not me, a friend of mine
Friday, April 27, 2012      6 comments

I work closely with someone (we're not in the same building but we have the same job title). I have been hanging out with her quite a bit. She's about 15 years younger than I am, so she's almost like the daughter I never had too. We're b... Read more
A Little Good News

I have been taking blood pressure medicine for years. My doctor put me on it because I had "borderline" HBP. Well, I started to have some problems with the medication (chronic cough), so he told me to stop taking it and come back in six weeks.... Read more
Why I Don't Lose Weight
Wednesday, March 07, 2012      4 comments

I read an interesting book called "Why I Don't Lose Weight" by Dr. Wilfred Aguila. It talks about conquering the cycle of obesity. He talks about how we become trapped in it and provides some insight into how to break out of it. One of th... Read more
Vacation's Over

The cruise last week was a total blast. My husband and I had a wonderful time on the Beatles Tribute Cruise. We met so many wonderful people! I wore my pedometer every day and got in over 12,000 steps a day! One day I even got over 14,00... Read more
Cruising!
Saturday, February 04, 2012      6 comments

We're off today for a 7-day Caribbean Cruise. It's a Beatles Tribute Cruise, so there are lots of activities planned. I hope to have a lot of down time as well. I had to work so much overtime to be able to take some time off. I work at a uni... Read more

My local grocery store had a promotion going on where you accumulate points for your purchases and we earned enough points to get an immersion blender. This is the greatest small kitchen appliance ever! My husband is a professional cook so I p... Read more
Rock Bottom... I hope so!

I am ashamed to write this, but I really must make myself accountable, and a new year seems like a good time to clean the slate and start over. So here goes... I was so busted this morning by my husband. I often buy candy and keep it in... Read more
So sad for my son...
Sunday, September 25, 2011      6 comments

My 27 year old son came home to visit today and told me that he and his wife of 3 years were taking a "break". He is heartbroken, but it's been coming for a while. It's been very apparent for a long time that neither one of them was very happy... Read more
Do-Over? No, but I appreciate the offer.
Tuesday, July 26, 2011      5 comments

OK, I've been AWOL for a while, at least from posting. I have been basically tanking for the last two months. I lost 26 pounds pretty quickly and then have slowly been putting it back on. I've been "Sparking" daily, but I have felt like I've ... Read more
Know Thyself

I had a conversation with a dietitian a few years ago. She gave a talk at my workplace for people who were interested in losing weight. Anyway, she said something that has really stuck with me. She said, you have to be very honest with yourse... Read more
Procrastination?... I'll think about that later
Friday, May 20, 2011      10 comments

I read an article about procrastination yesterday that I was supposed to reflect on. It made a whole lot of sense. I am definitely one of those people who gets stressed out because I put off tasks, especially filing and organizing things so th... Read more
