Knee-d Some Help!
So about my knees... I have been carrying around over a hundred pounds (and at times 200 pounds) of excess weight most of my life. So it stands to reason that my knees have taken a beating over the years. I am very fortunate that although I h... Read more
The Feed Bag
So I have this pink and green canvas bag that I use to carry my food to work each day. I have christened it "The Feed Bag." So I thought today I would talk about what I have learned as regards healthy eating habits:
1. YOU HAVE TO PLAN A... Read more
I am blessed. I don't know why, but I am. NOW - what will I do with this blessed life? With this (other than being overweight) healthy body? With the time I have before me?
I will take care of myself. That is NOT selfish - that is prep... Read more
This Too Shall Pass...
Not a good day. It should be. I lost another 2 pounds from healthy living, but today I am SO DEPRESSED. My knee hurts, my back hurts, and I have a major stressor in my life right now... blech.
But it will pass. It's either hormonal or t... Read more
MORE MINUTES! MORE MINUTES!

Listening to My Body or Making Excuses?
My biggest fear these days is losing this wonderful momentum - I'm in my third month of great changes, that are finally becoming habits. So today I woke up ready to go to zumba, but I was SO TIRED. Last night, after spending about 6 hours doin... Read more
WHAT YOU CAN AND CAN'T CONTROL

Changing My Mind is Changing My Body
I cannot believe the change I've seen in me. I'm almost afraid to talk about it, because it seems to have happened so fast, and I don't want to ever lose it. But these are the things that seem so solid to me right now:
1. PORTION SIZE - ... Read more
PLATEAU is broken, I hope!
I hadn't lost anything in the last couple of weeks and was getting a little discouraged (although not nearly as much as I would have back in the day). But this morning I did lose another pound! Whew! So I'm down 35 since the first of March.

This Weekend Was Made of Success!
I TOTALLY stuck to my guns this weekend. About the only thing I felt a little worried about was that on Saturday, other than walking around the town yard sale all morning, I didn't do any specific workout AND for supper I had a margarita (on th... Read more
Debunking Myths in My Mind
So in the last two months and 4 days, I've debunked the following myths:
1. I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR EXERCISE. Bull. I have LOTS of time in a day where I was eating and zoning out. I have time for ME - so I can make time for exercise, EVEN... Read more

I just feel like I'm on a roller coaster sometimes, y... Read more
