Guilty Motivations
Monday, May 07, 2012      9 comments

Glad to report I'm not too sore from the new workout I started yesterday. I really have to bend and stretch to even find any soreness. I did 7 of the 8 Intermediate Runners Workout exercises, but I swapped the Back Extension on the Ball for Back... Read more

I did it! I finally changed my ticker to no longer show weight loss but to show number of weeks of weight maintenance. That is simply a more significant accomplishment to track and celebrate now. It was hard to give up that ticker showing t... Read more

Sometimes it just seems repetitive. Plan. Eat. Track. Eat. Track. Exercise. Track. Eat Track. Plan. Eat. Track. Eat. Track. Exercise. Track. Eat. Track. Plan -- and do it all over again. And over again. How much of this can I make habit and... Read more

The Thrill Fading?
Saturday, April 28, 2012      14 comments

There was a time when everything in my closet was new. After all, when you lose 80+ pounds you have to buy new clothes -- from PJ's to stockings, from casual clothes to dressy, even the watch band and the socks, all the old had to go. Now ... Read more
It's Sinking In
Friday, April 27, 2012      9 comments

Losing over 80 pounds has been exciting!! I was overweight more than 50 of my 62 years. Now it's been over 3 years since I achieved a healthy BMI and two full years since I got near the weight I've wanted to be since I was a teen. For the past 3... Read more

Tuesday, January 24, 2012      17 comments

My weight tracker is currently sitting at 126.8, however, I know it is time to change it. This morning I was 128.2. That is still within my happy goal range of 124-129, but I was hoping to get to the bottom of that range. I always find it hard t... Read more

Yesterday my head cold was pretty bad. And I could feel my backache every time I took a deep breath. And then my car would not start. Bummer, bummer, bummer. You might think I would be feeling down, but there was this irrational happiness -- rel... Read more

Gwen will be fine, but she's a bit under the weather this morning. So, she can't go to the YMCA this morning. I went to her house this morn (her dad or mom usually drops her off) so she could wake up naturally. She'd been up in the middle of the... Read more
