My DH and I went out to dinner at Lone Star before doing some Christmas shopping tonight. We looked over the menu and decided on the chicken breasts (minus the cheese and bbq) and wedge salad (everything on the side) and a veggie. We split it... Read more

Are you putting your "resolve" on the shelf for the holidays???

Thursday, December 02, 2010      2 comments

I'm seeing a common theme in the posts here at SP. So many are saying they are "taking a break for the holidays" or "waiting until Jan. 1 to give a good effort". I feel I need to address this plainly. This is the WORST month to take a bre... Read more

I'm pleased that I made it through Thanksgiving with a 1.1 pound loss. I had a "taste" of everything I made on Thanksgiving, ate out several times over the week with family in and even had bites of dessert on 4 occasions. The key here was "ta... Read more

December is upon us! It's the month of my birthday, anniversary, AND Christmas so I'm setting "achievable" goals so that the end of the month finds me pressing on toward the goal instead of starting over again. You too can choose to USE Decemb... Read more

We ate out with my sister and her husband today. Everyone ordered very tasty fare and I did really well and ordered grilled chicken with vegetables. I was pleased that I was able to "have fun" and "stay on program". It is possible. I hop... Read more

Sisters are FUN!

I get to see my older sister today. She's the best! She (normal sized) is willing to work out with me! She is fully supporting me! That's worth so much! Having people that support you is a BIG part of weight-loss. It's knowing they wil... Read more

Even a small loss is a MOVE in the right direction...

I lost a half pound on the nose. I had hoped it would be a pound, but 1/2 it is. Actually, that's not bad. My sister came for the weekend, we ate out 4 times, and I didn't exercise other than Just Dance 2 on the Wii. I started getting sick o... Read more

My little sister (who is rail thin) is here visiting and we took her to a french chocolate shop ( her fav.) and I was SO in control! I allowed myself only one little piece and counted it in my calories - a victory! I'm having a blast with ... Read more

My sister comes tomorrow. I have not seen her in almost five years. That's WAY too long. If you have family far away make it a priority to see them. I've been through 3 years of very very poor health in and out of hospitals and it's the PEO... Read more

So the BLC 14 is at the midpoint. Several are lamenting at their lack of progress or slow progress but I think we need to look at the challenge that remains! We still have 1/2 a challenge ahead. That's 6 weeks to make a difference! Okay ... Read more

Tuesday, October 26, 2010      2 comments

In our noisy world of television, radio, stereo, video games, computers, ipods, etc. how often do you turn it all off and listen. It's late. DH is sleeping in the bed behind me and I'm listening to the sounds of the night. There is a g... Read more

Sharing is not only cheap but kind to the waistline!

Wednesday, October 20, 2010      1 comments

DH and I went out for a quick bite of supper. We split a soup and sandwich at a local restaurant. Not only was it cheap - but it was plenty of food for us. Today's portions are so generous that 2 can easily eat one entree. So, when e... Read more

Monday, October 18, 2010      1 comments

My son was trying to explain the art of instrument only navigation of an airplane using "VOR". While I failed to totally grasp the whole picture I did understand that a plane navigates from Departure to Destination by flying a route that takes ... Read more
