Sunday, October 11, 2015      2 comments

Back in June, after well over a year of failure with weight watchers, I decided to give Medifast a try. I sined up for a 10 week weight loss and 6 week transition contract. The idea was to lose 20 lbs. My 16 weeks is up this week and I have lost... Read more

I don't know why I'm still here. Well actually I do. I am giving up my Weight Watchers membership, because I have been tracking here on Spark. I think I like it here better. Have been getting bored with the whole point counting thing. Mayb... Read more

Wednesday, November 13, 2013      5 comments

Yesterday, I went and bought the Fitbit Zip. It took a bit of time to get it all set up. I have the apps on my Iphone, Ipad, and the desktop version on my laptop. So far, I'm loving it. It is so tiny, you forget its even there. I'm quite a ... Read more

I haven't been in here much this past year or so. Am trying to get back into it. I have a slow metabolism due to thyroid issues. I am thinking about getting either the Fitbit zip or the Spark Activity Tracker. I haven't decided which one yet... Read more

Not much going on here. I'm still 20 lbs over goal, due to lack of motivation and dealing with stress. My 48 year old brother had a massive brain hemorrhage (stroke) in March and 6 plus months later is still in the hospital. Anyway, I'm t... Read more

I have been a Weight Watcher member for many years and it worked for me. That is until I had the thyroid removed. We all know thyroid helps with metabolism. So, even though I had been at goal weight for several years, I gained some of the wei... Read more

They Only Work If You Follow Directions

Sunday, November 07, 2010      3 comments

The title speaks for itself. I made a trip to Phoenix mid October, got off the diet and haven't gotten back on track yet. The problem really boils down to this: I don't want to right now. I need to though and I will. I really need to.... Read more

Progress finally! Your Inner Skinny

Thursday, October 14, 2010      7 comments

It's been a while since I posted a blog entry so thought today would be a good day to do so. I had started using a 1200 calorie diet back in August, but it really wasn't working for me. It wasn't the diet, it was me. You know how some diets f... Read more

Hubby asked me the other day what I would like for my birthday. I didn't know what to say. He came up with the idea of getting me a new bike. Now I have a bike we bought about 5 years ago, but I didn't really bond with it. It was a boy's bik... Read more
