Summer, it's all about the GARDEN
Wow, the vegetable garden has, once again, taken over my life. Every spring, I can hardly wait for DH to prepare the plots, go to the store and select the seeds and then plants, and then the greatest fun, planting. After the planting, I go every... Read more
Not All My Old Habits Were Bad Ones
As previously stated, I have been a member here on Sparkpeople since 2008. A few times I almost made it to my goal weight. Always I slacked off for one reason (excuse) or another. A few times I even went MIA for months.
This trip I decided... Read more
One year ago today we lost her. Many of you here at SP knew her and loved her almost as much as her family did.
We miss her smile, her insane sense of humor, her love of life and her determination to retire as early as possible and get "ou... Read more
I've been a member here since 2008. Here it is 2016 and I have the very same pounds to lose as I did the very first day I joined. Hmmmmm.
I'm done with so much of the stuff that is supposed to help...things many people swear by...they just ... Read more
Here I go again. Going to give it another try. I am in a place where it should be easier to do. I have no vehicle, so everywhere I go is on foot, built in exercise. The grocery store is about 1 KM from the condo. Carrying heavy groceries in my b... Read more

How did THAT happen? Seems like it was just the weekend, my birthday and Father's Day. Now, here it is already Wednesday. Guess I have been really busy.

Birthday Weekend Report
It came, it went, I turned 64 and I didn't blow the work I had done during the week.
It was actually pretty awesome. I went with my brother, his GF, my DH to a favorite micro-brewery for dinner. We arrived there around 6pm, hoping to get a... Read more
Tomorrow's My Birthday and I Lost One Pound
OK, I have officially lost one pound. That is my birthday gift to myself. This is such good news and the best gift I have given myself in a while. Well there was that trip to the beach, LOL, but this one is pretty good too.
About a week ago... Read more
Wednesday was a bit of a mixed bag. I was actually outside, halfway down my driveway, when the big storm blew up. Call me wimpy, but I don't play with thunderstorms. That being said, I only got in about 1.8 miles of my 3 mile goal. I am countin... Read more

Yesterday was another overall successful day spent working the plan. I am eating small meals and tracking, staying within calorie range. I did my 3 miles of walking and my additional exercise, I chose to do jumping jacks, 80 of those jokers! I a... Read more
First Report of the Plan in Action
Yesterday I blogged about my plan for the day and promised to report in on the plan in action. It seems to be so very easy for me to make a plan and so very difficult to put it into action. This is my effort toward setting more reasonable and at... Read more
Am I Ready for This
Last week was confession and re-consideration time for me. I have confessed all the lies I have been telling myself and those interested in me, at least the ones discovered to date. Then I spent a little time thinking, reading, reflecting and ... Read more
After my confession to lying to myself for a very long time, I have had time to consider. After consideration I have determined that I have not been too hard on myself. The simple truth is, what I have said and what I have done are not computing... Read more
Liar, Liar---I'm a Big Ole Liar
It's time to admit the ugly truth... I am a liar.
I started on Sparkpeople in 2008, at which time I had been retired for 3 years. As I eased into retired living I eased into a few extra pounds and decided (ha!) they needed to go. I was an... Read more
