Tuesday, April 10, 2012      1 comments

I have less than 2 weeks to get down to my goal weight before going on vacation, but then I realized.....then what? Will I miraculously stay at my goal weight during my entire vacation? No, it just means that I reached my goal the day I left b... Read more
Shopping for a new bathing that's gotta motivate me!
Saturday, March 31, 2012      0 comments

Tomorrow I go shopping for a new bathing suit. My vacation is only a few short weeks away and I know standing in the dressing room under those flourescent lights wearing a bathing suit is the best motivator there is!!!!!... Read more
Time to mix things up!

Last October I got "The Biggest Loser Challenge" for Wii for my birthday and have been doing the workouts every day ever since. Well, with the occasional missed day here and there. For Christmas I received "EA Sports Active 2" and boy did I fe... Read more

Really? Four pounds in one week? And it's not even Thanksgiving yet? I knew I had fallen off the food wagon a bit this week, but four pounds worth? I gotta step up my game.... Read more
I missed my morning workout....and I really do miss it.

We had lots of things planned for today, an it started with meeting friends for breakfast. I REALLY didn't want to get up to an alarm on a Saturday morning, so I made the decision to forfeit my morning workout. At least we got all of our erran... Read more
Finally....a healthy body image!

It took 50 years, but I am finally happy with my body. Sure I've got my problem area's (and who doesn't), but when I look in the mirror I'm pretty proud of what I see and that's a whole new concept for me. Even when I was in my 20's and weighe... Read more
Almost 2 weeks later and I'm still "normal"?
Thursday, September 08, 2011      1 comments

Wow, I must say I'm feeling quite motivated. I mixed up my excersize routine and it seems to have made a difference. Instead of doing 2-3 very long workouts in a week, I'm now working out every day for about 15-20 minutes. It's gotten me out ... Read more
"That's Normal"

About once a week or so I use my Wii Fit to weigh in, but the strangest thing happened this morning. When it was measuring my BMI the little automated voice didn't say "that's overweight" (which I hear so often that I block it out), it said "th... Read more
Getting back to my passion for diving!
Sunday, August 07, 2011      1 comments

For any of you folks who are scuba certified, I'm sure you can understand what I mean. My sister has been my long time dive buddy and the last few times we've been diving she's been nervous and slightly panicked. The last time we went diving w... Read more
I GAINED Weight?????
Tuesday, July 19, 2011      2 comments

I've just weighed myself and was shocked to see that I've gained 2.5 lbs in the last 3 weeks. What????? How can that be? I'm drinking lots of water, logging everything that I put in my mouth and tracking all my exercise. My clothes are fitti... Read more
A Hard Time Staying On Track
Monday, July 18, 2011      1 comments

I don't know if it's a mental block or just the thought of wanting to lose weight, but lately I want to eat all the time. Maybe it's the warm weather....every time I turn around someone is having some sort of get together or barbecue. Food is ... Read more
An Early Milestone
Wednesday, July 06, 2011      1 comments

I joined Sparkpeople only eight days ago and I'm already seeing a small but significant difference. I was able to put on my favorite shorts that I haven't been able to squeeze into for the last two summers. Every once in a while, when I'm feel... Read more
A New Day
Tuesday, July 05, 2011      0 comments

Yesterday was the 4th of July. It was lot's of fun, but I'm so glad it's over. We had family over for a barbeque and there was just way too much food. It's tough to stay on track on days like that. We prepared healthier options for snacks an... Read more

I had a great workout this morning and now I'm ready to face the world. I even splurged on a cute new pair of sandals today. Well, I didn't exactly splurge....they were only $9.00, but they're comfy and I want to take them out for a spin aroun... Read more
A snag already?
Friday, July 01, 2011      3 comments

Here it is, only day 2 and I've already hit a snag. I got up this morning all set to put on my workout gear, but every bit of it was in the hamper. So instead I jumped in the shower and got ready to start my day. Am I already looking for excu... Read more
