Glad SparkPeople is here
I am now way over a year down the road since I last wrote. Weight is up. Today is a new day. I did measurements (alarming) and while I was taken aback at what I have put on, it is a wake up call. Waist and hip measurements were 8 inches each,... Read more
Never too late to start again...
Last week I started again, in earnest to get the 25 + pounds off I have let slip on. It is helpful to log the food in Sparkpeople and use the tools that are provided on this great site. A friend and I are doing it together which is nice. I am... Read more
I just changed my weight chart - up 7 pounds since last March. I have slowly crept up over the last year or so. I am not going to beat myself up though. Considering that when I look back and my original start weight was 218, I have done pretty... Read more
May 18, 2015 not happy with myself
Oh, My. Today is May 18, 2015. I am inching back up and am unhappy with myself. Due to knee issues I have stopped exercising which I am certain is part of my problem. I am at an all time high since I lost 70 pounds two years ago. I am now 1... Read more
Moving at a snail's pace.
O.K. a Sparkpeople friend, Carol, and I are starting today in earnest to get off these last ten pounds our bodies are holding. I am back to recording every morsel of food I put in my mouth and will keep my calorie intake at 1200 - 1300 calorie... Read more
June 2014 New Challenge
I am in week two of a Couples Weight Loss Challenge (six couples). We all lost the first week. I am down two pounds from the weigh in on Sunday so am holding today at 146.6. Everyone is supportive of one another and it is fun. My goal is to ... Read more
Minimal Progress - Turning Over a New Leaf
O.K. It is now Feb. 12 and I have made little progress toward losing the 14 pounds. I have maintained an average of 10,000 daily steps but the food consumption is another issue. I am going to renew my program starting with the Nuviva info I g... Read more
Happy New Year 2014
New Year, new chance. I will do a minimum of 10,000 steps daily. I will also lose two pounds per month which should be VERY doable, until I get back to about 135. I have crept up to 149 and am disappointed in myself. ... Read more
Last day of R3 P2 of hCG
O.K. today was my last injection of a 40-day protocol w/hCG. Total loss was 8 pounds, not a lot in the world of hCG possibilities, but more than what I have been able to do on my own. Now, onto stabilization for three week, then maintenance. ... Read more
April 30, 2013 Check In and Reflections
I have about another two weeks of hCG. Today, down to 136.6 - still hoping to see 130 or below, but it has been very difficult to stay POP (Perfectly on Protocol). Been at 136, then bounced up a bit. Have lots of company, socializing, etc and... Read more
Update on 04-13-13
Haven't posted a blog in a while. I am doing a third round of hCG and doing marginally O.K. Loss is not what I had hoped but scales are moving down which is in the right direction. I am hoping to get out of the 130's and my goal weight is 125... Read more
Still at it.
Since the last blog on Oct 25th, I've been up and down the four pound scale several times. I am back to the 138.8 today. I know the last 10 pounds or so is difficult but geez.... I'm ready to move forward. It seems my body likes this set poi... Read more
Move scales, darn it!!!
Oh, woe is me...
Here I am at 138.8 still/again. Went up 4 pounds when I fell off the eating cliff while away for a few days, now back on plan but scales will not budge and I am being compliant. ... Read more
New Low Weight
Oh, Happy Dance.
I am now at 140!!! It is the lowest I have been in probably 20+ years. Never got this small at my lowest even following the lap band surgery. I still love my band and feel it has been helpful too. Thanks to Nuviva the l... Read more

Entry of October 19, 2012
Well, I seem to be settling in at a weight of 143 - that is down a total of 62 pounds. Wearing size 10's mostly, with a few 8's. I am going to hold here then try for a few more pounds loss after the holidays. I feel so much better.... Read more
