Coffee with an Old Friend

Monday, April 26, 2010      8 comments

I went to lunch with an old friend recently. It was great to see her and get caught up. I remember her as a big coffee drinker who loved real cream in her dark roast coffee. I was surprised to see her drink black coffee. She commented that she ... Read more

Next Smaller Size, Please

Sunday, April 25, 2010      11 comments

Two days ago, perhaps you read my blog, I tried on a formal just for fun and felt like a princess. Well, a grey-haired princess, but regal and slender just the same. Yesterday I bought a new pair of pants (another size 4 - hard to believe) and s... Read more

Great Find!

Saturday, April 24, 2010      15 comments

Today I did something I hadn't done for a long time, grocery shopping. My hubby likes to grocery shop because he likes to choose things to eat. But today he was content to let me go do the chore. I took the opportunity to pick up things he would... Read more

Closet "Shopping"

Friday, April 23, 2010      12 comments

One of my favorite things while I was losing weight was to try on stacks of my clothes. It was just thrilling to find old favorites that fit again! I'd divide clothes into piles -1. give away - too big, 2. put in the center of the closet to w... Read more

Building Confidence

Tuesday, April 20, 2010      8 comments

Well, the hip is a little better today. I was able to do all my strength training machines. I entered them gingerly and made sure none strained the sore spot. I did 1/2 hour on the stationery bike and it felt good, kind of tingly in the injured ... Read more

Hitch in My Get Along

Monday, April 19, 2010      17 comments

Today when I tried to stand up after playing with play dough on the floor with Natalie, I did something. Something not good. I twisted or pulled or strained my left hip. I can walk just fine, but sitting down, getting up, and bending over hurt. ... Read more

884 Calories!!

Often I enter my food in the nutrition tracker before I eat it. One of the advantages of that technique is then I eat more confidently. Entering the whole day or the whole week ahead of time and adjusting for any last minute changes (Did you eat... Read more

I Win the Argument!

Saturday, April 17, 2010      15 comments

I ate a little more than I intended to eat yesterday. It was all healthy food and I really know that it isn't a problem. I can rein it back a bit if the scale shows I need to. But my first thought when I woke up today was rather negative. I was ... Read more

More Healthy Rewards

Yesterday I had a check up at my doctor's office. My HDL healthy cholesterol was 55, up from 47 six months ago. That 47 was a big improvement over measures from 2008 and before. The rest of my numbers were all good this time, too. My docto... Read more

Not Giving Up

Tuesday, April 13, 2010      9 comments

Disappointment. My biggest goal right now is to lose body fat and gain muscle. My eventual hope is to move from the "acceptable" body fat range to the "fit" range. I had my body fat percentage taken yesterday and there is no change. I look at my... Read more

You know that styrofoam coffee cup printed with the warning, "Contents May Be Hot"? And the razor blades that warn about being sharp? And the plastic toy food that says, "Do not eat"? You feel like calling up the president of the company and say... Read more

Saturday, April 10, 2010      10 comments

Here's the question I asked: "How does the SparkPeople 100-150% of RDA for calcium standard relate to the 1,200 mg recommendation for people 50 and over? The recommendation is only 1000 for people under 50. Does SparkPeople's Nutrition Tracker... Read more

Two Important Things I've Learned

Friday, April 09, 2010      9 comments

The two most important things I've learned recently about maintenance: 1) I don't have to be hungry to maintain a healthy weight. Filling foods exist and are a great help. Eating plenty of fresh fruits and veggies, lean protein, and whole g... Read more
