Full Day already, emotionally speaking, weight loss included!
It's only 10 o'clock and I feel like it's 3 in the afternoon. Ok, I guess when you wake up at 4:45 instead of 7:30 more can happen by 10. I have no idea why I was wide awake so early after only sleeping 5.5 hrs, especially when I usually require... Read more
Two of my grandkids are on their way here right now. Will be fun since the boy is 2.5 and the little girl is 13 mos. It's supposed to be 81 out today. They will play in the pea gravel we have in a fire pit area. We never bought the fire pit, bu... Read more
Turning out to be an awesome day!
Didn't end up getting out for a walk or a swim yesterday. Went to help my daughter with her kids so she could go to the dr for her bronchitis. Had to work in the evening. Wasted whatever other time I had available in the day.
So, today, bei... Read more
What do others think of my body? Who cares!
Had an appointment with my Dr today to check BP and get a lab sheet. My BP was great! 116/60. Walking and losing weight must be doing a lot of good! Tomorrow I should go to the lab to get my fasting cholesterol test done. It u... Read more
Update on Coan, fellow Sparker
Just a note to update you on Coan's progress. She had surgery Monday to get plates and screws put in her femur. The dr was pleased with how well she's healing, but after surgery she had a hard time breathing and ended up with pneumonia. I visite... Read more
Working on staying on track today.
I was off track since Saturday. Ever since I heard about my friend Coan's accident. While I was off track it felt like I was messing up for a week rather than just those two days. The days seemed endless, when my mood was "off" and my eating and... Read more
Sad News about a close friend. I need support! Help...
I got such horrifying news yesterday that I actually nearly passed out. I never react so strongly to news like this and I never had something like this happen to someone I feel so much love for.

My day, I behaved.
Used my pedometer today. Over 12,500 steps for the day. I did take an hour walk. But of course there were many other steps taken today. I'm excited that it is motivating me to walk more. I think walking is the best thing for me, good for my bone... Read more
New gadget motivated me today
I had some birthday money. I was in wally world with my hubby today and I saw the pedometers they have. I've thought about getting one, but a long time ago I had a cheap one that wasn't worth 2 cents, so I've never replaced it, not realizing the... Read more
I just saw a motivating picture of a woman who went from size 20 down to a size 0!!! How did she do it!

What the heck is going on here? i just had a salad for my afternoon snack, followed by a handful of pistachios. A salad? who me?! Where did the real Lori go? OH, maybe this new Lori will become the new real Lori.
The last 4 weeks or so I ... Read more
Extra calories today, but I'm not gonna let it get me down!
I could easily get discouraged by the fact that I went WAY over my calorie limit for the day. But I've decided to look at that good that has happened today. Even though I had a calorie laden dessert to celebrate my birthday, I chose a lean yet ... Read more

As far as I'm concerned, I've met an important goal!
Yesterday I said it had been two months since my last Body Comp. measurement was taken. But it was 3 months.
I am SO excited. Though some may say it's not a very accurate measurement to have done, I was excited with the results I got. I ha... Read more
