I really thought this crisis with a family member would be over by now. Today I got my first break, as they were readmitted to the hospital. So much as been happening. On my own front, had written on my calendar to turn the focus back... Read more

Sunday, July 12, 2015      3 comments

Fully expected the great progress of the last few weigh in days to correct a bit today. I was 205.5 yesterday and 206 today, so basically all is well. Still can't believe I have 7 off for the week. That is rather like the first week starting ... Read more

Hooked on sit ups - Day 26 of gratitude

Saturday, July 11, 2015      1 comments

This is how myths begin. I have eaten over 1000 calories the last two days. Yet, yesterday the scale showed 5 lbs down and today I 2 more down. The only really health thing I have done is some sit ups. But let's be real, there is no way... Read more

Friday, July 10, 2015      3 comments

Ok, I'm realistic and know that at least three pounds of this is dehydration, yet even two pounds off since yesterday is a yaw haw moment. Yesterday, first thing in the morning I weighed 212.5 and today 207.5 I was a busy girl yesterda... Read more

I left feeling tired and unsure how I would do with my goals while on the road. It was a hesitant moment when I stepped back on the scales this morning. I was 212.5 - when I left my lowest weight in this current journey was 212. So I feel... Read more

Many things happened today, but this one I wasn't expecting. I need a new sleeping bag. I happened to run into a store for a very different purpose and found a VERY high end hot weather/cold weather sleeping bag for 1/2 off. I'm grate... Read more

Cantaloupe - Day 23 of gratitude

Thursday, June 04, 2015      3 comments

You may have noticed my attendence and logging have gotten blotchy. It was hard seeing the scales go up even if I knew it was mainly inflammation. But I also babied myself with a little extra food. I don't think this is necessarily bad, as wh... Read more

Ok, as if I don't know this. Doing a lot for other people isn't a good formula for my body. My weigh bumped up three pounds. This isn't due to eating, this is pure inflammation. The fingers on my left hand look like little sausages, and my w... Read more

Progress - Day 20 of gratitude

Friday, May 29, 2015      4 comments

I know when I wrote about taking out the trash, it was tempting to wallow in what is was and all the emotions that come from a world that is out of sync with goals. I'm very proud of myself. I've really turned a corner to just walk away fr... Read more

Sunday, May 24, 2015      6 comments

Taking out the trash? Ok this one is going to take a bit of explanations. If your goal in life is to have a clean kitchen; you mop and scrub, you do the dishes, you put away the clutter and then you maintain it. But there comes a point w... Read more

Family - Day 18 of graditude

Saturday, May 23, 2015      3 comments

Well I didn't have caffeine today, so my good mood can't be blamed on that. I slowed down a bit today and now that the CPR is behind me, I worked to updating my resume and writing up my skill set for this job. Interview is Sunday. First t... Read more
