Shopping

I'm not a 'shopper' type of person but today was a bit of an exception. I went to a small town about a half hour's drive away that I hadn't been to before. I went to buy pottery supplies at a supplier that a friend told me about. I'm so glad ... Read more

Monday, May 05, 2014      8 comments

I joined the 'Eat Up, Slim Down' challenge to try to see just how my food intake relates to my exercise. This week I'm trying to walk 5 or 6 miles each day and then consume at least the lower range of calories according to the nutrition tracke... Read more

Goal oriented behavior

Monday, April 28, 2014      7 comments

I always seem to do better when I blog about my goals, even though the goals don't really change. I guess I could just say 'ditto' to the last set of goals I posted. But strictly for my own accountability, my goals from now until the end of Ma... Read more

2013 was a successful year for me in terms of weight loss. I started the year at 260 and ended at 190. The Spark stats are a bit different because they go back to May instead of last January. I've learned that exercise is a very important pa... Read more

Christmas is a hard time of year for me since my husband passed away 8 years ago. I was looking forward to this Christmas because my daughter and her husband and daughter were planning to be here. They haven't been home for Christmas in 7 yea... Read more

Appetite

Saturday, November 30, 2013      8 comments

For about a week after surgery I had no appetite and didn't eat much. All that has changed big time! Now I want to eat everything in sight. I may need more nutrients to heal, but my appetite isn't for an extra orange or banana. Oh no, I'm cr... Read more

I'll be having a hysterectomy on Thursday, Nov 21. Basically I'm old and saggy 'down there' too and that's causing some problems so its time to let the surgeon do his 'thing'. I'm well past menopause so there really shouldn't be any hormone is... Read more

Taking stock

Every once in awhile I think it helps to look at how far I've come. When I started this journey in May, I could walk about 2 blocks. I was having a hard time getting back to 'normal' after a respiratory infection. I made that 2 block walk sev... Read more

Awhile back I blogged about healthy eating from then until New Years. While I haven't been perfect, I have been successful. Not only have I make good choices from a calorie standpoint, but I've been concentrating on eating seasonably and local... Read more
