Restart, and moving ahead
Again I restart my journey. I am so hopeful, that I can get closer to my goal, or at least a major portion of it, before the Holidays set in. I am going to be quite frank, I don't feel that I do well, at those times, because of all the celebra... Read more
Coming home to Sparkpeople!
I have had a rough couple of months. I am hoping with the passing of my beloved animal, and the grueling pain of the knee will be behind me, and I can move on (although, I will always have my Grizzabella, in my heart). But the knee now, is keepi... Read more

THANK YOU LESLIE SANSONE!!!!
What is it with me, that I have to be right on, or I fail? I always begin with anything with the mind set of a perfectionist. This isn't always good. Because then I start getting crazed with it. But the good thing is, is that I stick with it. La... Read more
As most of my SP friends know, I have been battling a long battle I have had for years and years, starting with my sugar bowl treks to the top of the cabinets (that's where my Mother hid it) I was 3.
I have fought the sugar bug for a very lon... Read more
Why do we do that?
Isn't it something, to still eat that last one, when you really don't want to, your full, your satisfied...I do the same thing, and I am sure many of our Spark friends have "been... Read more
If Chocolate screamed!
I decided, even though it's been almost two weeks out, that I would even out the weigh in (once a month) to the first of the month. So my next weigh in will be May 1st. It works for me to weigh in once a month, because I see too many people ob... Read more

Will fix that. I am throwing it out, and getting a chart on herb ... Read more

Ok got through my first week, of my new lifestyle changes. (now if I could only get up off my dead butt)
It's pretty hard to do. Trying to find protein, sucks. Especially being on a 1200 cal guideline. I am seeing the sodium, and the chole... Read more
This is not easy...
I tell ya, it's a hard trip, trying to take this journey, with not only eating clean but giving up meat too.
My biggest problem "still" is the sodium. I have to find products that use little or no sodium, or meat or by products of meat.

Vege-atari-anism or in my case......
Ok I am taking on the way of non meat eater person. There are so many forms of atarianism and I gathered I was considered a pescatarian. Because I still choose to eat fish. But will opt for legumes, and tofu, and other forms of protein.

Grandma lived a long good life
I was just watching the rerun of Oprah's favorites, and this one of course, was the episode with "food Inc" I based my last blog on it.
It just hit me. Our Grandparents, and relatives, that lived into their 70's, 80's and 90's didn't eat... Read more

Eyes wide open
Today was a turning point for me. I watched the Oprah show. I was blown away, by the way they raise the animals to provide the food for our tables, and fast food, and restaurants.
Well guess what! I am going Vegan. I will not touch an... Read more
