Companions ... celebrating loss
Friday, May 27, 2016      10 comments

Truff and I worked hard this past week and I was finally rewarded with 1.75 loss at weigh-in yesterday. Biggest reason I can think of was attention to portion control and a bit less between meal snacking. Results of my blood work not as good as ... Read more
Companions .... another bump in the road
Saturday, May 21, 2016      4 comments

Didn't get good news from scale Thursday. No excuses, way too many excess calories. The 1.25 gain served as proof that if I bring the treats into the house I am going to eat them. On Friday on Doctor's scale I had already made a bit of progress ... Read more
Companions ... continued

Week 3 a bit of a disappointment. Weight up 3/4 of a pound for me, not sure about the dog, don't have means here at home to weigh her. We have been watching her treats, but obviously I fell short of monitoring mine. Let some emotional issues get... Read more
Companions-week 2
Thursday, May 05, 2016      2 comments

Well, it's been a week and the dog and I have tried. I stayed the same at my weekly weigh-in today and Truff looks no larger. I'm not good with photos, did manage to put one of the dog in my gallery (Less Food, More Exercise, Exhausting) in her ... Read more

Changing my status on my Spark Page this morning, realized I had not posted a blog since February 29. Wish I could say that in that two months I was 5 pounds lighter and closer to goal. Unfortunately, wishing does not make it so. However, I can ... Read more
Bonus Day
Monday, February 29, 2016      0 comments

Waiting out a "clipper" system passing through northern Michigan right now, quite a contrast to yesterday's spring-like 50 degrees. Read with interest Spark's list of suggested activities for this bonus February day. Not much outdoor activity a... Read more

Thursdays are my weigh-in days. Weather forced cancellation of our meeting last week, my home scales showed a loss. Apparently I took that as permission to relax food program as I narrowly stayed the same at yesterday's scale encounter. Could it... Read more
Two forward, one back

My New Year's momentum experienced a small setback at yesterday's weigh-in with a 3/4 # gain. Would like to blame the high sodium dinner of the night before, but in reality took several liberties with my food program during the week and it caugh... Read more
September goals
Tuesday, September 01, 2015      2 comments

Actually, this blog is about more than September goals, although I've set some and hope to follow through. Several of the blogs I've read lately have really provided good food for thought. I could plug myself into any one of them and report the ... Read more
Today was better
Tuesday, August 18, 2015      4 comments

Thanks to all who encouraged me when I wrote yesterday about my evening splurge. Today I was still not certain I would stay within range. My granddaughters are staying with me without their parents for the first time since I've been by myself. W... Read more
Sabotage strikes again
Monday, August 17, 2015      6 comments

After productive day with many positives could not limit dinner and ended up over calorie range. Cannot blame stress. Once again, as soon as we think we have it figured out, we don't. Hoping to get to bedtime with just water. Tomorrow another da... Read more
Time moving too quickly
Friday, August 14, 2015      1 comments

Having hit yet another "maintenance mode" in my weight loss journey I decided perhaps it was time to blog again. Could not believe that I had not written since November, 2014. Today's weather a far cry from that day as we have sun, high humidity... Read more
Another Week Another Pound

We're experiencing early winter driving conditions here in northern Michigan. I debated about whether to drive the 10 miles to my weigh-in, but the sun was shining so decided to chance it. I was rewarded with a 1# loss which made me happy I went... Read more
No Days Off
Friday, November 14, 2014      3 comments

Missed my weight loss group a week ago yesterday because I was traveling. It seems like each time that happens, I experience a small gain. Frustrating to me, since I have years of experience in this battle, and it seems that I should be able "to... Read more
5K Hike
Monday, November 03, 2014      3 comments

DS#1 visiting for a couple of days. He has lost a total of 95 pounds, working hard at the gym and giving up processed and fast food. Today he decided we should hike a 3.1 mile loop on state land near here. They probably call it rolling terrain, ... Read more
