Tuesday, May 26, 2009      5 comments

Well, the obvious answer is my clothes fit now. But really this question digs deeper into my soul. I had a really good self-image of the real me, the one living inside my shell. I am an honest and trustworthy person with confidence ... Read more

Sunday, May 24, 2009      6 comments

I am leaving my goal as 119 but I am satisfied with 125 so I decided to change up my calorie range to stay at 125. I think I can be happy with 1730-2080 calories. But, I am going to try to eat the calories daily for 119 pounds! 1836 daily... Read more

Have a fruitful day!

Thursday, May 21, 2009      6 comments

I don't know what reminded me, but years ago at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting we were given an unofficial diet to follow if we chose to. Unofficial because just like SparkPeople, OA will not tell you what program or diet to follow. Anywa... Read more

No. The only one that can make me feel bad about myself is me, myself. **edit: Yes, Janet! I didn't remember the quote but yes I like it! ***edit: I stopped comparing myself to others. I can admire another without feeling I mus... Read more

Dedication, but not perfection.

Sunday, May 17, 2009      10 comments

I might be a little more dedicated than some, but then my need is greater too. At 210 I was a heart attack in the making. Genetically speaking, I was on borrowed time. Both my parents started their heart problems at age 57-58 and I was al... Read more

Why is the term Cheating even used with a LifeStyle Change?

Saturday, May 16, 2009      14 comments

I have learned that even Weight Watchers encourages people to have one *cheat* food every week. **see below-Marty says WW does NOT use the 'cheat' word! What I fail to understand is, why use the word cheat at all? Why not *indulge yourself... Read more

If I offended you... I am sorry... but...

Friday, May 15, 2009      24 comments

I was attacked in another person's blog because of me posting my "quit smoking" blog. It was anonymously but since I have the only Quit Smoking blog analogy it is pretty obvious I stepped on at least one set of toes. I gather "this person"... Read more

Blog Prompt - How do I keep myself motivated?

Tuesday, May 12, 2009      8 comments

My desire is still there to lose this weight and keep it off. I stay motivated. The problem is not the motivation, it is the laziness that tends to creep in sometimes. It is the temptation to eat junk foods. So I accept that I am not... Read more

I have Quit Smoking except for One Free Day per Week!

Tuesday, May 12, 2009      7 comments

I have Quit Smoking except for One Free Day per Week! I think as long as I do not smoke from Monday through Friday I deserve to reward myself with cigarettes on the weekend - this will keep me quitting the smoking the rest of the week. ... Read more

Blog Prompt - If Ray gained weight...

Wednesday, May 06, 2009      5 comments

No, it would not bother me. I married Ray for better or worse, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer... Ok, so as the joke goes, why can't I take better, healthy and rich?! I told Ray that unless his health depended on... Read more

How tacky can some people be?!

Monday, May 04, 2009      16 comments

I read another blog today and was quite appalled that someone suggested that activities logged were never done. How rude some people can be! Never fear, I would never question what someone else is posting. Not ever! To me, my trackers ... Read more

I just can't do this anymore!
