My LONGEST Binge-free Streak to Date! Woo hoo!
Twenty one days without a single binge. Truly a victory for me! To some, that doesn't sound like very long. According to SP, I have been binge-free 46% of the time. Again, that would discourage some people, but not me! Why? Because I have been a... Read more
Every effort is a small victory! CELEBRATE!
It is so easy to get discouraged when we falter on our pathway to fitness. But I look at it as EVERY effort is a small victory.
Perhaps I am not where I wanted to be by now in terms of what I weigh. But guess what? I have significantly imp... Read more
The Thrill of Victory Followed by the Agony of Defeat!
What a day! I was so proud of myself just an hour ago. I fancied a fastnacht on "Fat Tuesday" but alas, did not get one. So when I went to our local grocery store a bit ago and saw fastnachts being sold, I grab a package. Then I got to thinking ... Read more
So far, so good! Holiday Strategy is WORKING!
In my previous blog I wrote about how, thank to a recent SP article, I developed a strategy to deal with the holidays. I really tend to lose control during the holidays and usually gain several pounds from massive over indulgence. This year I ha... Read more
Getting through the Holiday Season WITHOUT gaining weight!
Thanks to a recent SP article, I have a strategy this year. First of all, my goal is NOT to regain the pounds I lost, NOT to lose weight! There are WAY too many holiday celebrations for me to realistically think I can lose weight this time of ye... Read more

I haven't lost much weight lately BUT
Like my blog title says, I haven't lost much weight lately. It is taking me far longer to recover from my near-fatal accident than I thought it would. Apparently middle-aged bodies take longer to heal than young ones. BUMMER!
But I am happy as... Read more
SP helped me celebrate my birthday when I was feeling forgottened!!
I was feeling a little sad because not only did I have to work on my birthday, but it seemed like a lot of the "usual" friends and family had forgotten it was my birthday this year! Usually I get at least a half-dozen cards or so and some phone ... Read more
Every small step is a victory.
Today I was a little over my calorie range, yet I saw it as a small victory. Today I did not binge - yes I overate a little, but I did it at a place where I could easy have consumed triple the calories I did for today. THAT is a small victory. E... Read more
I'm back! I am alive and it's a MIRACLE!
It's been so long since I have been here, but at least I have a good excuse! I was in a horrific accident back in early March. A teenager who had her driving license just two days rammed my car while I was on the interstate. My ... Read more
Why I chose to DELIBRATRLY regain 10 lbs.
Long time no see! I've been busy, busy, busy - with work, setting up the new house and working on insulating and paneling the "Cat House" for the cat sanctuary. Oh and regaining 10 lbs.
When I joined SP, I was 160 lbs. I se... Read more
Long time no see!
I have not been at SP in quite some time, all is well, but I have been busy busy busy! Between water-proofing the basement, unpacking, buying necessities for the house and continuing to work on the cat sanctuary - I have had very little time to ... Read more

Introducing the Miracle Kittens!
So far so good! The kittens are drinking formula and eating moistened kitten food. All have passed urine which is a good sign since they were so dehydrated. They're not out of the woods yet and they are still looking for Mama, but we are hopeful... Read more
