Several people have been asking me to update. My Spark friends are worried about me, and they should be. Here I sit, with a significant regain (67 lbs. last time I got on the scale), and struggling AGAIN! But every day there is new hope and I wi... Read more

Duane's dad, Harold, who turned 89 on Monday, is visiting us from Iowa right now. In February, he lost his second wife after a very short illness, so he is alone again (after losing Duane's mother to cancer in 1999), and I have invited him to st... Read more

So, my starting over on my own didn't work out so well. Now I'm up to 186.8. That hard work of August is out the window, I regained the 5 lbs. I lost during that month, and I've got to STOP gaining and START losing again. Yesterday WW, sen... Read more

Thursday, August 31, 2017      8 comments

Yesterday when I woke up, I walked into my bathroom and looked in the mirror. I saw an old woman. A woman, that I felt in that moment, would look old no matter what she weighed. ... Read more
Day Ten--Back on Track!!

Every day on track is a victory. I'm not perfect--far from it--but dedicated to staying as true as possible to the WW plan and cutting out most of my snacking. My snacks are healthy and limited these days, and I know it needs to stay that way ev... Read more
Day Eight and Nine--Back on Track

I guess I've fallen down on my commitment to blog daily for 30 days. The days go by so quickly and before I know it, it's bedtime and I haven't blogged. Oh well. At least I haven't fallen down on staying on track. I keep the snacking down, eat s... Read more
Day Six and Seven--Back on Track

Too lazy to write yesterday, there wasn't much to write about, other than the scale dipping down to 180.8. Made the goal of being in the 170's before the baby shower next Sat. almost realistic, but--alas--it's probably not to be. Today the scale... Read more
Day Five--Back on Track

I'm still plugging away here. Yesterday for lunch I had a cheese steak at a local Mexican restaurant, without the bread. I didn't eat any of the chips and salsa either, so I will consider that a win! I made homemade pizza for supper, we rarely g... Read more

Day Three--Back on Track

Still hanging in there. No snacking, or only one or two, and just good healthy stuff, nothing like the crackers and cookies I was sneaking. Yesterday I had a bag of Annie's organic fruit snacks (70 calories), and a banana. Lunch yesterday w... Read more
Day Two--Back on Track

Maybe if I blog every day I can stay on track. Right now, right here, I am committing to blogging daily for the next 30 days. Last summer, Barb at OneKidsMom (at
age.asp?id=ONEKIDSMOM) posted a list of blog top... Read more
One Day Back on Track!

I made it through Monday, and didn't over-eat. GO ME!! I am so proud of myself. After three months of following WW carefully, rarely going over my allotted daily points, and losing 25 pounds, last week was not good. Not good at all!! I thin... Read more

If you've read any of my blogs over the past seven plus years, you know how much I love my family. They are the most important thing in my life, even more important than losing/maintaining weight, and that's pretty important!! I'm a collec... Read more
I Slipped....But Back on Track Now

I was so proud of resisting temptation all weekend, first the wedding brunch/reception pastries, then the multitude of bowls full of chips and salsa at the Mexican restaurant while celebrating my son's birthday with the family on Sunday. But it ... Read more
Temptation Resisted
Monday, August 07, 2017      8 comments

I am proud of myself this morning. Over the weekend I was faced with some circumstances that required more than my usual restraint. We went to a friend's daughter's wedding Saturday morning, and brunch was served at the reception. When we walked... Read more
