Done Whining. Back on the Horse for the Victory Ride.
Friday, September 18, 2009      8 comments

I'm not normally a whiner, but wow, that's all I've done lately. Yesterday, after asking for support, I received so many great reminders, good advice, and kind support. Something snapped (in a good way) inside my head and I just got sick of my... Read more
Bad Attitude Leads to Terrible Talk Leads to Falling Off for Good?
Thursday, September 17, 2009      13 comments

I haven't fallen off the wagon. Still eating healthy despite this current bad attitude. But I have to admit that I am right on the edge. It's like I'm some sort of big immature child who is rebelling against all of the people I'm losing in my... Read more
Commitment at an All-time Low
Wednesday, September 16, 2009      9 comments

Have to admit that I'm in the slump area again. Got on the scale yesterday, after a terrible August, and am pretty disgusted. I had a perfect record for 10 months and blew it in the 11th month. Will have to get back on the proverbial horse an... Read more
Life's Trivialities Compared to Life & Death Issues
Tuesday, September 15, 2009      5 comments

I was so absorbed with having my weigh-in after a really bad month in August. I'm ready to throw that darn scale away as it's really ridiculous to put so much importance on numbers. Especially when more bad news came in today that another aunt... Read more
"Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" (from Spamalot)
Monday, September 14, 2009      3 comments

Never a Monty Python fan, but the show came to town and one of my Spfriends let me know it's a terrific show. I got a great deal on the ticket. Well, honestly, I'm still smiling. Great music, great sets and costumes. Wonderful energy. Absur... Read more
Day of Wreckening (sic) - Tomorrow's Weigh-In
Sunday, September 13, 2009      6 comments

I may even delay it until Tuesday, that's how much I'm dreading facing reality. To make a long story short, I've not weighed for a few weeks due to a very bad month of August. After 11 months eating healthier, I backslid more than I'd thought ... Read more
A Lifestyle Change, But Also a Diet for Me
Saturday, September 12, 2009      7 comments

I've never had to worry about weight until about four years ago. I was the person who could eat any quantity of food at any time of the day and not gain a pound. Then, tons of things happened... hormonal changes, mega-stress, less activity as I... Read more
Eat Right, Exercise Regularly, Die Anyway
Friday, September 11, 2009      7 comments

The other day, I read this quote and it reminded me of my favorite uncle who smoked all of his life. He said that we're going to die of something, so why not pick your poison - his rationalization for continuing to smoke. I smiled to read ... Read more
Look 16 years Older? Yet feel 13 years younger?
Thursday, September 10, 2009      6 comments

A recent article on SP talked about how extra weight ages us by about 16 years. Wow! Then I read in the latest issues of Women's World, that most people feel 13 years younger than their actual age. Whew, that's quite a fractured self-image to... Read more
RENEWING MY VOWS ON 9/9/09 AT 9:09 AM & PM (WEIGHT LOSS VOWS, THAT IS!)
Wednesday, September 09, 2009      5 comments

It's time to renew my weight loss vows and recommit to my health and progress. What better time to do so than on a day that is a unique blend of "9's?" (smiling) I've slid pretty far down this past month, in many ways, but I am ready to kick m... Read more
Yikes! Sometimes This Blog Candor Can Hurt! Another Start of a Bad Habit?
Tuesday, September 08, 2009      8 comments

Whew, two in a row with the same theme...slipsliding away? Or just giving myself a little break from all this constant thinking about food and what to do and what not to do. I mean, it gets old. (smiling) Okay, I started this oh-so-much-fun ... Read more
Uh-Oh....Temporary Rest or Start of a Bad Habit?
Monday, September 07, 2009      2 comments

Well, I've been tired of doing some things lately. Like journaling my food. So, I've given myself a "little break." However, you know how these can go - downhill fast. Have to be careful this doesn't turn out to be the start of not logging i... Read more
A Tribute to My Furry, Fourlegged Friends
Sunday, September 06, 2009      10 comments

There has been much written in recent years about how pets contribute to our quality of life by affecting our health and well-being. As I visit SPfriends' pages, I share the cuteness of their wide variety of pets. And I thought that today I wo... Read more
Now It Looks Like I May Not Have to Lose These Last 20 Lbs.
Saturday, September 05, 2009      14 comments

In the September 7 issue of Women's World, I read that a Tokyo University study indicated that middle age women who are 20 lbs. overweight are more likely to live longer than women who are thinner. Did I need to read that and use it to rational... Read more
Sometimes It's not About Being Motivated...
Friday, September 04, 2009      6 comments

...it's about being healthy. That was a great reminder that a sparkfriend responded when I last blogged that I was not motivated. It's amazing how helpful the thoughts of friends are in keeping me reality-based. Another example this week, was... Read more
