Husband Does the Shopping

Wednesday, November 11, 2009      1 comments

My husband does the grocery shopping and I do the cooking. He started shopping probably six months after I began losing weight and eating healthier because I wasn't getting him the things he wanted. Right now his chips and potato salad are not t... Read more

New Pictures

Tuesday, November 10, 2009      2 comments

My daughter snapped some pictures yesterday so I updated my profile picture and gallery. My dear granddaughter was sweet as can be as you can see in the pictures. The bougainvillea is in glorious bloom so it made a great back drop for yesterday'... Read more

It's Monday

Monday, November 09, 2009      4 comments

I was up at 5:30am. Didn't make my goal of 8 hours sleep, but I had seven good hours and feel good. I walked 2 miles on Fort Frazier trail with two neighbors, DeLois and Berneice. I don't know them well, but I'm glad walking brought us together.... Read more

Restaurant Delight and Challenge

Sunday, November 08, 2009      1 comments

We are going out to Harry's in downtown Lakeland tonight. I've only been a few times, but always been impressed. Fortunately, the menu is online. Unfortunately, the nutritional information is not. I'm good at estimating WW points, but would... Read more

Exciting SparkPeople Day!

Saturday, November 07, 2009      2 comments

Today I met several members of our Polk County SparkPeople team for a great walk around Lake Morton in Lakeland. I had met Dawn before, but didn't know she was FloridaGirl. It was great to get to meet Cyndi (not sure I spelled that right), her h... Read more

Sodium Surprise

Friday, November 06, 2009      2 comments

The biggest surprise I've had tracking my food is how much sodium I have been eating. I always think I don't eat much salt/sodium, but it is probably the nutrient I have had the hardest time keeping in line for the past 2 weeks. Anyone else hav... Read more

One Chocolate Chip Cookie??!!!

Thursday, November 05, 2009      5 comments

When I looked at today's meal plan I broke out in laughter. Listed is one chocolate chip cookie at lunch time. Why would that be funny? The picture of me eating just one cookie on first thought just seemed unthinkable -- yes, downright funny. I ... Read more

Awareness Wednesday - I've Come a Long Way

Wednesday, November 04, 2009      2 comments

As a kid I was embarrassed to run on the playground because I thought my fat jiggled. Now a little jiggling wouldn't phase me, but I don't have much left to jiggle.... Read more

Terrific Tuesday

I have Natalie 8am to 9pm today. We'll have fun. I'll feed her well and make sure she gets plenty of activity today. Really want to be a good role model.... Read more

Marvelous Monday

Monday, November 02, 2009      3 comments

Natalie, my granddaughter, will be here very soon. We'll have an active day full of Hokey Pokey, Ring Around the Rosie, and maybe even kid's exercise on Exercise TV. Just because I'm 60 doesn't mean I can't do at least most of it. Yesterda... Read more

Double Pleasure Walk

Sunday, November 01, 2009      1 comments

I walked this morning 70 minutes with a good friend I've known 30 years. It was a pleasure to talk with her. We walked in a beautiful neighborhood with a canopy of trees, mostly old oaks covered with resurrection vine. The beauty of trees, the l... Read more

Great Weigh In Today!

Saturday, October 31, 2009      2 comments

137.2 - Can't believe it is me. Wouldn't mind losing very slowly to 135, but really don't want go to under that. Maybe I'll splurge on one chocolate treat tonight. Other than that, really want to stay on the healthy track. Also celebrating my 6t... Read more

Skinny "Compliment"

Friday, October 30, 2009      5 comments

Earlier this week I ran into two people I hadn't seen for a year when I was 40 pounds heavier. One woman (prom queen/cheerleader type) was very complimentary. The, who fights her own weight problem, said I was too skinny. I just pretended that b... Read more

Natalie's First Joke

Thursday, October 29, 2009      2 comments

Yesterday I asked 2 year old Natalie to count the number of legs on a horse we could see in the field behind my house. She started well, "One- Two-Three- Four," but then she went on, "Five-Six-Seven-Eight-Nine." I was already to tell her it was ... Read more

Why the Old Mom screen name?

Tuesday, October 27, 2009      7 comments

I keep my 2 year old granddaughter 4 or 5 days a week while her mother is working. I tried to get her to call me "Grammy," but she kept calling me "Mom." I told her I was too old to be her mom. So, I deserve it, don't I? She started calling me O... Read more
