Twice in the past when I have lost a considerable amount of weight, certain triggers (words) caused me to deliberately regain it. The first time (many years ago), I lost a lot of weight in TOPS, but when a friend told me that her husband had tol... Read more

Several things have come together serendipitously that have encouraged me to start over. Last Sunday our minister was speaking about making God the number one priority in our lives, and among other things, he said DO WHATEVER IT TAKES! I do... Read more

This (first paragraph) is a comment I made on Nancy Howard’s blog, “Is Endurance Exercise the Fountain of Youth?” I have wanted to share these things on SP and this seems to be the perfect time! I am excited about the changes that exercise ... Read more

What’s gong on here? Oh … THAT!

What’s going on here? I have struggled from the beginning, but was always encouraged by slow changes that were good! I even thought for a while that I was truly being transformed into a self-disciplined, healthy-eating, exercising-regularly old ... Read more

I read Nancy Howard’s blog, EXCUSES GIVE US PERMISSION TO FAIL, and as I promised in my comment, I copied her blog to save to my computer and inserted my own excuses / permissions to fail that did indeed lead to “failure” (NAY! Setbacks that I h... Read more

When I lose a little weight, I feel so happy and self-respectful ... and also terrified that I cannot keep it off. Then I eat more to prove I can’t. I had forgotten this pattern until my recent success on SP: the joy I felt in losing ten pounds ... Read more

Another 5-Minute Pep-Talk

Tuesday, November 23, 2010      3 comments

I'm liking these! I have never talked positively to myself before ... at least not for five minutes! Today (and yesterday) I thought about how easy it was for me to go up the 28 steps to the second floor of our church building. Just a week ... Read more

Five Minute Pep Talk Challenge

Saturday, November 20, 2010      2 comments

This is a mini challenge (I think!) that I accepted for a streak. At least, I think that's what I did. I know that focusing on the right things will help me do the right things to achieve the right things, but when I sat down to think for five ... Read more

Intrinsic Motivation

"The best inspiration is not to outdo others, but to outdo ourselves." --- Anonymous I like this. It reminds me that my intrinsic motivation is what counts ... NOT trying to please others or be what they think I should be (e.g., THINNER)! ... Read more

Over a year ago I was diagnosed with lumbar stenosis with a few other problems thrown in to make it very painful. Physical therapy and spinal injections were prescribed. I'm ashamed to say I did not continue the PT at home, as prescribed, trusti... Read more

Things I Am Learning Since Becoming Active In SP 2.5 Weeks Ago …

Restaurant Chains seem ALWAYS to have printed nutrition values of their menu items. Now I ask, read, and am amazed! For example, KFC coleslaw has 180 calories, the same number of calories in their biscuit! The “redeeming value” in the coleslaw i... Read more

I took a personality-type test many years ago to determine which Biblical character I am most like. Amazingly, it was Moses. The capable “I can’t do that, I have too many excuses!” guy. The instructor said I (and legions of others) can get 99 co... Read more

Actually YESTERDAY ... It's past midnight again! Today was my 71st birthday: at my weigh-in, I had lost 1.5 pounds. I have been interrupted all day long with phone calls wishing me a happy birthday ... a lovely thing. Bill took me to ... Read more

Yikes! I was writing and my new entry disappeared before I posted it. Brandy and I have gotten disconnected somehow ... we don't know WHAT is going on! Are there gremlins on SP? As I had already written: last night (too sleepy / too late to... Read more

It's late and I am wiped out. Just have to say I've done well and not-so-well today. The "not-so-well" is that I had dinner at Red Lobster with my son. The dinner was delicious and the company was wonderful. However, I tried to find accurate cal... Read more
