Final Forty and Lost Ground
Sunday, July 17, 2016      2 comments

I'm proud of myself for losing 40 lbs and keeping it off for several years. Now, with a push from my doctor, I'm tackling the final forty (or maybe 50?). I want off all this medicine! My doctor says I should be off everything, except the glaucom... Read more
I keep coming back - not starting over - just back.
Saturday, September 13, 2014      0 comments

I felt so overwhelmed learning to eat lower carb to work with Type 2 diabetes that I simply quit worrying about the calories. I tracked my blood sugar to figure out what made it spike (or not). Now I'm ready to start back on the weight loss/exer... Read more
Confused, Angry, Frustrated
Sunday, July 20, 2014      4 comments

About 6 weeks ago I was diagnosed with both Type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol. Frankly, I have never been so obsessed with what goes in my body as I have been these last few weeks. I'm now on pills for both things, which I hate! hate! h... Read more
Bye to quick food

I'm coming to the end of week two back at SP. I'm feeling so much better from the change in my eating habits. We ate out a lot from mid-February to the end of April while we got ready, moved, learned new jobs, and got settled in. It wasn't all j... Read more
Back again - again!
Saturday, May 17, 2014      2 comments

Life has been crazy for a couple of months. Moving, new jobs, other life drama. What I said in February still applies, but it's May instead. That's OK. The scale broke during the move and I haven't bought another one. Going from the fit of my j... Read more
Back Again
Tuesday, February 11, 2014      2 comments

Well, I got so discouraged last fall that I gave up. At least, for awhile. I knew then that I would be back. I've gained 6 pounds, so that is my first short-term goal - lose the 6 pounds in 30 days. I know I can do it. I did it before. I am givi... Read more
Five Things I've Learned in Two Months
Monday, July 15, 2013      1 comments

1) I can do this. It is going to take me longer than I thought. I had set my goal at 2 lbs a week. I've lost 7 and kept off 5 in 2 months. 2) Inches have come off even if the pounds haven't. 3) I feel great when I follow my healthy e... Read more

I overdid on Sunday and am still sore in unexected places. I took Monday off from the videos to recoup. Certainly better today - did the video and morning walk. I think I'll do another challenge of some sort after this. I've not lost muc... Read more

Changes in Perception
Tuesday, June 18, 2013      1 comments

I always thought I was fat. Even as a 120 lb teenager who swam, sang, and biked at lot. My Mom hada poor body image and tried to pass that on to me. She almost succeeded. I realized when I was in college that the problem was mostly in her head... Read more

All is going well, sort of. I had a really hard time with today's video. It was legs and mine are not strong. I was surprised how difficult it was. By the end of the challenge, I will be much stronger. I know I'll be able to do it!... Read more

We are trying to eat down our freezer, so we can defrost it before all the great summer produce comes in. I have long planned meals each week. Using what's in the pantry and freezer is a bit of a challenge. I can do it and stay in my SP guidel... Read more
