Memorial Day
Monday, May 28, 2012      3 comments

Thank you to those who have given all. This day is bittersweet for me, since my son is a Sargent in the United States Army. I don't ever like to think about those that die in service to our country, because that is a mother's greatest fear. B... Read more

Had a VERY busy weekend. Went to a Chinese buffet with my brother on Friday. First time at a buffet in almost 3 months. Outcome? 291 CALORIES. I now use the SP phone app and count my calories as I go at the buffet (or before if it's a sit d... Read more

That means NO CHANGES. No "it's the weekend so I'll just cheat a little" or "I deserve a rest" kind of thinking. THIS IS A LIFESTYLE CHANGE. My life doesn't stop on the weekends - in fact, there is MORE TIME to do healthy and fit things AND g... Read more

I have to say that my journey has become so much more than just a "diet." Changing my mind in order to change my body is about a lot of things. Here is what I've realized: 1. Changing the way you think/feel about yourself takes PRACTICE.... Read more
"I Don't Have Time"
Monday, May 21, 2012      4 comments

“Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not g... Read more

This is going to be a rant of sorts - aimed at myself! But it's also for those who say that they "want to be healthy" but CONSTANTLY require the validation of the scale to feel successful. IT IS NOT ABOUT THE NUMBER ON THE SCALE. PERIOD. ... Read more

Got a Killer Deal on an Elliptical!

My brother loves the show "Storage Wars." The doctor has said it would be good to have something to do to occupy your time - helps with depression. So he thought it would be neat to try to do something like the Storge War guys. We found an au... Read more

Knee-d Some Help!
Thursday, May 17, 2012      3 comments

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

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
Answered Prayers
Tuesday, May 15, 2012      6 comments

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...
Monday, May 14, 2012      9 comments

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
