Protein and Fiber
Thursday, September 14, 2017      0 comments

We've been incredibly busy this week. I've stayed within my calorie range, but the nutrients have been all over the place. Primarily, not enough protein (although I've gotten close) and way too little fiber. I've noticed a difference in how I fe... Read more
Day 12
Saturday, September 02, 2017      1 comments

Day 12 - I am so grateful for SP! I maintained a still too heavy but acceptable weight loss for a couple of years. Then this year I gained almost 20 lbs between March and August. I had cataract surgery in February - the plan had been that lef... Read more

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
Friday, May 23, 2014      3 comments

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
Day 2, Week 4 - Bootcamp Challenge
Tuesday, July 02, 2013      0 comments

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

I'm enjoying this challenge. I feel stronger and more healthy. I can't do all of the exercises in the videos, but I can do most of them. I've lost a couple of pounds and know I will lose more soon.... 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
Day 5 of 28 Day Bootcamp Challenge
Friday, June 14, 2013      0 comments

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

I know I did the 12 minute cardio video. It was low impact and fun, but it was a workout. Feeling good!... Read more
