It's been a while and there is hope

Thursday, May 24, 2007      7 comments

I know it's been a while since I last checked in. The baby is almost a month old now and I've been doing fine. She is growing like a weed. She is a bit cranky, pediatrician changed her formula and she seems to be a bit better. On the weight... Read more

Golly Gee Whiz

Sunday, April 29, 2007      6 comments

I take a couple days off for the birth of my new granddaughter and look what has happened! I go to my email this morning and had over 100 to open. The majority of them were notification of comments on my Sparkpage from new friends and old alike.... Read more

Oh wow!

I can't believe I've let so much time go by without posting something here. Gosh, no wonder my friends keep having to come looking for me. Sheesh! My daughter Mandi goes into the hospital today (4/26) to start the induction of labor process... Read more

Moving Downward Again

Monday, March 05, 2007      5 comments

The scale has oddly enough decided to move downward for me once again. I am finally under the 400 pound mark and it seems I'm going to stay there this time. I don't quite know how I've managed it but to say that I have been attempting to eat bet... Read more

Tick, tick, tick ...

Friday, February 16, 2007      4 comments

Time seems to just continue to tick on by. It's been a busy time and things don't seem to be letting up. Went to San Diego and had a wonderful time at our future son-in-law's boot camp graduation. He came home for ten days and goes back on Tuesd... Read more

No news

Friday, January 26, 2007      4 comments

There's been no news on the job front. I called on Monday (one week after my interview) and got the HR lady's voice mail. Left a message inquiring about the position and a job offer but she never called me back. I'm guessing, from past experienc... Read more

Job Interview

Wednesday, January 17, 2007      4 comments

The interview went pretty well. I interviewed with someone in the HR department first. Then I had to take a typing test. I managed to type 62 words per minute with 93% accuracy. That was just the practice, but she said I did so well I could keep... Read more

Down Two More

Thursday, January 11, 2007      3 comments

I am down another two pounds this week. It could be because I've had the flu and spent a LOT of time in the bathroom, but I'm taking it anyway. I really hate being sick and am just now feeling more myself. Started not feeling well on this past S... Read more

Doing Great!

Monday, January 01, 2007      2 comments

The resumption of my journey is actually going really well. I've been able to stay within my calorie range (except for one day) and within the percentages for protein/carbs/fat that Spark has set for me. For me, that's been quite the accomplishm... Read more

I'll Never Miss Again ...

Wednesday, December 27, 2006      2 comments

This used to head my blog here at Sparkpeople. I am ready to move forward so I'm moving it and redoing my intro. Never Miss Again 1. Having to wake up DH or DD to help me get my socks and shoes on. 2. Having to sit down on a plastic... Read more

Beginning Again

Today I have placed myself back on Stage One. I entered my actual current weight, which is 395 pounds. I reset my goals and due to the health rule Spark has of only being able to lose two pounds per week, my new goal date is December 31, 2008. I... Read more

And so it goes

I am not officially no longer a supervisor at work. I had asked to be "stepped down" to a regular youth care worker positiion with no supervisory responsibilities. The schedule is one I feel I can live with. I will work ten hour shifts, four day... Read more

Been a little quiet

Friday, December 08, 2006      5 comments

So I've been a little quiet lately. I've had a lot on my mind and a lot going on in my life. I'm still maintaining my weight loss and not losing any more. It's okay with me. I've given myself permission to maintain. I came to a realization... Read more

I'm back from my short trip to Alaska. You can look in my photo gallery here at SP to see some of the photos taken (to be posted soon as I finish here). We had a FANTASTIC time and visiting with my SP sister Teresa was a blast! She was an excell... Read more

New Photo

I've added a new photo to my photo gallery here at Sparkpeople. It was taken today and is a full body shot of me without my 'sidekick'. I cannot believe the difference and you know, when I look closely and compare it to photos taken back in Apri... Read more
