I rode my recumbent bike again today for ten minutes. I also did about ten minutes of resistance and strength training with my bands. I stayed within my calorie range. I will continue to track my foods and move my body. I hope to increase the mi... Read more

Yesterday I stated some goals in returning to SP. I did well today. I logged everything that I put into my mouth. I stayed within my SP ranges for everything tracked. I did drink a little soda with dinner. I did eat a couple ounces of barbecue c... Read more
Making My Way Back to You
Saturday, February 25, 2012      5 comments

I think my body is trying to tell me something. Thinking about eating French fries makes me nauseous. Eating anything sweet makes my stomach cramp. Drinking diet soda makes my tummy burn. So ... I am done! I am going to get back to eating health... Read more
New Territory
Sunday, May 09, 2010      6 comments

I have finally managed to get into new territory in the weight loss. I had been stuck at 265-270 since last July. This past week I managed to go from 269 down to my current weight as of today 263.8! Woo hoo for me! I've been really increasi... Read more
Exercise is Good
Saturday, March 20, 2010      3 comments

Water aerobics on Wednesday was intense. We did steps in the water. I didn't think it was all that different but I am here to tell you that while it didn't seem all that rough, I have sore muscles that scream otherwise. Hope we start to step mor... Read more
18 Months Post Op
Wednesday, March 10, 2010      6 comments

I cannot believe it's really been that long since I had my gastric bypass. I really need to post new photos as I haven't taken any or posted new ones since July of last year. I think I need them to get myself motivated and going once again. ... Read more
February Update
Thursday, February 18, 2010      3 comments

I am still going up and down on the blasted scale. I have been doing this since July. It's frustrating. Talk at my support group meeting last night about this issue by many and the consensus is that now, 18 months post op, it is more a mind gam... Read more
Five Years Later
Sunday, January 03, 2010      11 comments

I started my initial weight loss journey five years ago this month. I decided that being super morbidly obese was no longer acceptable. I made the decision that carrying around 530 lbs. was no longer for me. I was tired of being tired. I was ove... Read more
Walking, Reflections, and Plans
Monday, November 23, 2009      3 comments

I think I mentioned before that I now have an iPod touch and I purchased a Nike+ sensor that acts as a pedometer. I LOVE it! Went for my first walk on Saturday, using this, and walked for an hour. During that time I walked two and a half miles a... Read more
The power
Wednesday, November 18, 2009      5 comments

I am trudging onward and will not let others have the power to keep me from achieving my goal. I tell my girls at work all the time not to give away their power. They are always blaming someone for their mistakes, faults, short comings ... I tel... Read more
Ta Da!
Tuesday, October 20, 2009      8 comments

As my granddaughter Chloe would say ... "Ta da!" I got up this morning, took my shower, and stepped on the proverbial scales. I had to rub my eyes to be sure I was seeing the number I thought I was seeing. Tim (the hubby) and I just had thi... Read more
All good things must come to an end ...
Saturday, October 17, 2009      8 comments

or so someone has said. We all come to a realization at some point that the pounds are just not going to fall off forever. I know I've been the same weight, give or take four pounds, for three months now. I have not given up. I feel fantast... Read more
It's been a while
Monday, October 05, 2009      2 comments

I guess it's been quite some time since I did any kind of update here. My one year post op passed in September. I am maintaining at right about 270 pounds. My surgeon says I should be able to lose another 40 lbs before I am done. I guess time wi... Read more
Progression
Wednesday, July 08, 2009      5 comments

I try to get here more often but sometimes there just isn't anything to say. Life has been busy and crazy but I'm hanging in there. I had a wonderful July 4th weekend visiting with my sister and my girls. It was just what I needed after a couple... Read more
Update of the last month
Friday, July 03, 2009      9 comments

Minimal weight loss last month. I was frustrated until I noticed that my body fat percentage is going down, though the number remains the same. I am exchanging fat for muscle which weighs much more. It's all good. I also realized that I may not ... Read more
