Today is a cardio day. I like to do cardio at the gym since they have exercise bikes and treadmills with handles I can hold on to. BUT, my local YMCA is being renovated and the glue smells have burnt my throat! So, how am I going to get in my... Read more

I went to a music venue and stood all night! I even moved around a little in slight dancing! I moved about within the crowd and did not feel completely conspicuous and ashamed due to my size! Yes, my body hurt with all the standing, ... Read more

The power of the mind is phenomenal! I have been envisioning myself as a slim, strong, healthy woman. I can see what I am wearing and how I feel emotionally. These are powerful exercises and helped me double my time on the stationary bike tod... Read more

I met with my trainer today who asked me about my food over the weekend. I was dishonest through omission. I got home and decided I had to tell him right away. Just admitting that I was dishonest and ashamed about what I ate induced a lot of ... Read more

I have been pretty hungry the last week as I have worked out quite a bit and also eaten differently, cutting down on dairy and grains. I intended to cut them out completely, but found myself tired, sore and lethargic. I learned long ago to not... Read more

Feeling frustrated and this blog is my attempt to change how harshly I can judge myself, which simply leads to a set up to eat more food than I need and reinforcing the idea that I can't succeed at my goals. I CAN SUCCEED with my goals. I want... Read more

Well, I am amazed one more time. I have been working slowly with the trainer, who has resisted all my attempts to move along more quickly. That means that I am developing patience and a lifestyle! Each week I set goals for behavioral changes ... Read more

Sometimes I am scared when I get a glimpse of how entrenched my old beliefs are regarding food, body, weight, and what my chances are. I would guess that I tell myself on some level many times each day that I CANNOT do it! And I am not even aw... Read more

One thing I can say is that I am a persistent cuss. My trainer told me today that I am human, which means I can do anything any other human being can do and so I get to remove "I can't" from my vocabulary when it comes to managing my health and... Read more

Wow, I have done a 180. I hope I never weigh myself again. I am eating only when hungry and eating food for emotional reasons is NOT an option. I am making tremendous headway toward my goals in all areas of my life. I am really rather surpri... Read more

I remembered my dreams...sort of... What struck me is that the first thought I had was that I will be 61 in five years and I better hurry up. I dreamt that I was trying to get somewhere and there were very serious obstacles and dangers along t... Read more

Wow, it has been two months since I have been on here! It is warm and wet here in Minnesota today and I am working on a project to be completed in a few moments. And then I read a post where someone reached out to me, which was moments after I... Read more
