Natalie is with me all day today. She is even spending the night while her mom goes to a professional meeting tonight and her dad is working. It is a gorgeous day and we enjoyed hours outside this morning. It had rained and the water ran down on... Read more
My Middle Finger May Get Me In Trouble!
Wednesday, November 18, 2009      7 comments

These days my middle finger is used in a way it never has been before - it displays my wedding ring. My ring finger is just too small. Yes, I know I should go get it re-sized. I will eventually. So far, my husband hasn't noticed, but I'm pretty ... Read more
The Scale is Up!
Tuesday, November 17, 2009      4 comments

I'm still not used to the scale going up. I was up two tenths of a pound from yesterday to 133.4. I suspect that is a good thing. At 5'6" I was happy to reach 165. Even thought about making that my goal weight. Then I hit 155 then 145 and then 1... Read more
Baby Steps in Planning
Monday, November 16, 2009      3 comments

This morning I planned and entered my whole day of eating. This is the first time I thought ahead farther than the next meal since I've been on SparkPeople. My goal is to eventually have a full month of healthy meals planned with weekly shopping... Read more
Regrets, I Have a Few, but then Again.....
Sunday, November 15, 2009      3 comments

Eating healthy feels so right now. How I wish I had found this lifestyle years ago. How would my life have been different? Oh, who knows. With more confidence I might have made more mistakes! LOL None of us can go back. So let's go forward... Read more
Celebration: Natalie is Potty Trained! Knee Improving.
Saturday, November 14, 2009      3 comments

Natalie has gone one week with no accidents! Once she got it, she had it. Fantastic. Knee is a little better today, but I'm taking it easy. In reading the health info on SparkPeople it must be an LCL sprain. I expect full recovery in 2-4 w... Read more
Obstacle: Knee Pain
Friday, November 13, 2009      3 comments

My right knee started hurting. Guess I'll have to give up my 120 minutes of cardio per day and cut calories. I'm worried that I'll be hungry and less fit. I will give up all jogging, jumping, and running with Natalie. Today I told her I cou... Read more
Maintenance Observation: Clothes
Thursday, November 12, 2009      2 comments

When I was a size 1X things often fit me whether I gained 10 or 15 pounds or lost 10 or 15 pounds. Now just a couple pounds means a new size.... Read more
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

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
