Tired of Carb Bashing

Work at the CMan has slowed, and my weight is starting to creep up. Now I'm working on adding more fiber, making healthier food choices, drinking more teas (green, Rooibos just to name two), exercising - and keeping my goal in mind! Get under ... Read more
Doo Wop in October
Last night went to Pitman's Freight Room in Laconia and saw The Bel Airs - a great Doo Wop group. I didn't think I'd care for Doo Wop, but when they started playing - I realized I did like it a lot! Except when they played Barbara Ann by the B... Read more
Here Comes Fall
Doing good - except for that Pumpkin Roll at Hannaford's. But I did have 5 cups of air-popped popcorn yesterday. My weight has slipped back up a little, so I've got to get back on track. I'm starting this day off with Maypo and banana. Will ... Read more
Aug 7 behind & hearing test results
Got onto Trivia this morning and I'm back on pg. 42. Forgot to log in yesterday. Good reason though. Met with my hearing doctor in Laconia to go over the MRI and find out why the hearing in my left ear is so bad. Good news: no tumor, inflamm... Read more

Went to see my medical provider yesterday - got results from my labs I took 2 months ago. Cholesterol is closi but not where it ideally should be. My Vitamin D is down to 12, it should be 4 times higher. My blood sugar is good, however! My b... Read more

To fail or not to fail?
Trying to do everything right to lose weight and get healthy is challenging. When I think of those "oops, I made a bad food choice. Maybe I'll give up" thoughts, it reminds me of when I used to march in parades. If any of us fell out of step,... Read more
Fairy Tale May
Lovely weather yesterday and today. Can't believe I forgot to log in yesterday - but it was a busy one - and after helping my son move on Friday. That was lots of stairs - moving him from a 2nd floor apt. to a 3rd floor apt! But C, dad, and I... Read more
April's almost over!
My goal is now to get to 150 by June 5. It's been a rocky road at best - and I'm learning that I'm not too honest with myself and need to record EVERYTHING I eat each day. At least I'm walking and active. So, here goes - starting Monday - loo... Read more
