Starting Again
Monday, November 12, 2012      2 comments

Yep, I slid back. Went back to old habits, old food. Had a lot of foods that are just plain poor choices. And all together, not spread out over several weeks. And no exercise. So, while I am not exactly back at square one, I am still starting ov... Read more
Good News & Bad News
Tuesday, August 21, 2012      4 comments

The Good News- I was able to weigh myself last week and despite my rocky attempts to stay on program, I stayed the same-yay! Honestly, that was pretty much all I could hope for, it wasn't pretty. The Bad News- Huge emotional eater here, an... Read more
Feeling Alittle Lost Without the Scale
Monday, July 30, 2012      1 comments

The scale I was utilizing here at work is not available to me for at least the next 5 weeks or so. And I wasn't able to use it for the last 2 weeks. Kind of stinks. I only weigh myself 2x/week, but still... Feeling a bit adrift without the ... Read more
Found the one thing that will continually take me down...
Tuesday, July 24, 2012      4 comments

I am an emotional person, even though I don't always show it outwardly. I will usually squelch outward showing of emotion except to a small group of people I trust. In the past, when something big hit me, I would stuff the negative emotions with... Read more
Back in the Saddle Again-Happily!

We went away this weekend to Kentucky. My Mother-in-Law semi-eloped, she wanted her kids and grandkids with her. Married a wonderful southern gentleman, they are so cute together. My food program didn't hold up so well. I was doing okay until th... Read more
First Weight Gain...Grrrr...
Monday, June 25, 2012      3 comments

It's Monday, why did I weigh myself? I usually do Tuesdays and Thursdays. I am up 1.5 pounds! Damn tortilla chips, I helped myself to quite a bit before they were out of the house. I also need to tighten up on my portions. Time to buckle down an... Read more
Walking Down the Grocery Aisle
Sunday, June 24, 2012      4 comments

Walking down the grocery aisle is kind of like walking down memory lane for me. Today my daughter and I went shopping today to get groceries for the week. We did great working within our new habits: make a list, stick to the list, emphasis on fr... Read more
20 pounds Down!
Thursday, June 21, 2012      7 comments

I really want to remember this feeling. The rush, the excitement, the incredible feeling of accomplishment. I am trying hard to stomp down the negative self-talk that keeps trying to rise, " You still have so much to lose", or "But that's just a... Read more
Surviving and Learning to Thrive after a Splurge
Tuesday, June 19, 2012      2 comments

I made it through the son's graduation party! That was a big concern of mine, would I be able to splurge at the party on cake and then get back on my program. In the past, a splurge would extend out weeks, months after the initial caloric intake... Read more
It Was Amazing...
Thursday, June 14, 2012      0 comments

One of the things both my husband and I appreciate about sparkpeople is that you can have just about anything you want, you just have to plan for it. So today I splurged at lunch and had a dessert. I rarely do, but this looked divine. Had to do ... Read more
Grrr...No movement on the scale
Tuesday, June 12, 2012      2 comments

Ticked off! I stayed the same! No movement on the scale-crap! Yes, I feel like I've lost inches. And I know what I need to do to make it move. And I also know I shouldn't get hung up on the numbers. But I did, and now I am a bit disappointed. We... Read more
Changes Amid the Changes
Friday, June 08, 2012      1 comments

People often say the best time to make a big life change is when the rest of your life is pretty well settled down. That's the philosophy I usually tried to adhere to. But upon reflection, the best things in my life usually occurred amidst other... Read more
Leave Yesterday Behind...
Wednesday, May 30, 2012      2 comments

I LOVE to ruminate. I can dwell on a subject, object, or idea for hours on end. On the outside I may look like I am going through the motions, saying all the right things, but on the inside, I am fixated on some stupid little word or phrase or i... Read more
Still Ridin' The Buzz~
Saturday, May 26, 2012      4 comments

Eleven pounds in 10 days with Sparkpeople, that's pretty cool. I have an absolute buzz going. But, from experience, I know that with the good, comes the bad/frustrating/crummy. I know there will be weigh-ins when I haven't lost a thing, or when ... Read more
The Ups and Downs of this Ride...
Thursday, May 24, 2012      3 comments

I lost over 8 pounds my first week- yay! But today I was finally brave enough to take my measurements. Let's face it, that's depressing no matter how motivated you feel. I am just so glad I am into this weight loss journey, and feel like I can m... Read more
