Two pounds up, but it was my birthday :)
Truly not a great excuse, actually not an excuse at all, but I did enjoy my birthday and I own what I did. Yes, I screwed up by not eating better foods (mistake number 1), and slacking off on tracking (mistake number 2). So in two weeks, I put ... Read more
Two big weekends coming up
First weekend - Monday is my b'day!! Yeah me, I love birthdays :) Go ahead, ask how old, go ahead, I know you want to know. I'll be 54. I feel great, I feel young, I can't believe I'm "that old"! Now if only I was as thin as I was 25 years ago -... Read more
Ever have one of those days?
Normally, I do a blog on Saturday or Sunday. Here it is Tuesday and I just had to vent - which I try very hard not to do here. It's not even about my weight or my diet or my tracking - although, that may suffer tonight, there are chocolate chips... Read more
I did it!!!
I know yesterday I was all worried, but I hit my first goal of 10 lbs! So very happy. Now onto goal two - 10 to 15 lbs. by end of June.
Thanks to all who cheered me on! Feeling on top of the world right now.

water and tracking
water today is really difficult and so is tracking. We took a ride out to our summer bungalow to check on it. Two hour drive, so I didn't drink my normal amount of water this morning (weak bladder, you all know). I skipped breakfast as we were ... Read more
Irish Soda Bread
Made two - I'm not even a fan, but I took the torch from my Father (who was German). He always made it for my Mom (who was Irish). Took me years to get his recipe right, and still, it's not his. But still, I make it every year. This year I made ... Read more
didn't hit my goal
Gain a pound. I was 169.5 last week and today I was 170.0. Technically a half pound, but for whatever reason SP shows me as 1 pound gain. Whatever, I need to lose two more pounds by next week. I really want to hit my 1st goal of 10 lbs. by March... Read more
Don't think I'll hit my goal this week
A little disappointed, but my own fault. I didn't eat the best I could have this week. I still have another week, my first week goal to hit 10 lbs. gone was March 16. Still disappointed in myself. I wanted to be one step ahead.
These are o... Read more
The Honor System
I made homemade blueberry muffins on Sunday. Did them as minis. Figured out the calories, etc. I love blueberry muffins, always have, always will. Well, yesterday, I wasn't having the best day for whatever reason. I ate six. Yes, you read this r... Read more
The Finish Line
This blog is going to sound a little strange. I'm not "obese". I AM overweight. I need to lose 40/45 lbs. Wow, it's so easy to put on, yet so hard to take off. When I was younger and thinner I couldn't understand how someone could "put on that m... Read more
One small goal at a time
I was very happy this morning when I stepped on the scale - down another pound (8 lbs total since January 6)!!! So far I am on track to reach my first goal of losing 10 lbs. by mid March. My second goal is to lose a total of 20 by the end of Jun... Read more
Back on Track
after a week down with the flu and one too many snow storms, I finally got my appetite back and went grocery shopping. I now have foods in the house that will keep me on track and eating healthy.
I did lose a pound last week, but it certai... Read more
totally stinks. First my husband got it, then me. It's been 5 days and I still am not myself. My appetite is zero but I'm trying to get a little something in me. So far turkey on whole wheat (half a sandwich) and broth is all I've managed. I am ... Read more
Not the best week
My husband has been home sick with the flu all week. We got a snow storm Monday (about 8 inches) and today got about 3 inches of snow, then sleet on top of it, now rain. Everything was cleared by my landscaper (thankfully because I'm exhausted f... Read more
SuperBowl Sunday and Chili
My husband always makes chili for Superbowl Sunday. I knew this yesterday as he began his pot.
Today, I worked backwards. First tracked my dinner - chili and cornbread. Then I figured out what I could have for breakfast and lunch. Since I ... Read more
