My first blog for 2012
Wow - when I looked at my blogs, I see that I hadn't added anything for over a year! So, I guess it's really no surprise that I haven't really focused on maintaining my weight loss as diligently as I should have. I haven't been on SparkPeople ... Read more
Wow - it's been a while!!
I can't believe that I haven't blogged since July. I also can't believe that I said that I didn't want to see 140 again, and yet, here it is. I know that I have been trying to fool myself, thinking that I'm doing enough to maintain my weight s... Read more
The Weekend to End Women's Cancers
Last weekend, I participated in the Weekend to End Women's Cancers Walk in Calgary!
It was fabulous, and I am so glad that I was able to be part of it! We had gorgeous weather (I'm sure not going to complain - about 27 degrees each day,... Read more
This is the first blog I've done in over a month. It's not that I haven't wanted to write something, it's just that I haven't known what to write.
I have been on my journey with SparkPeople for seven months now, and I reached my goal only ... Read more
I Want, I Want!!
Today is my birthday!! It's not a milestone birthday, but in a way, it kind of is (to me anyway). For the first time, I actually feel younger on my birthday!
I know that this feeling has a ton to do with how I've changed my life in the ... Read more
Thoughts of months gone by
I have noticed a lot of people on SparkPeople reflecting on the past few months. It seems like June is a good time to look back on the winter and spring that have passed, and to look forward to the summer ahead! So, I think I will too!

I have my dental appointment this morning, and I have to admit, I am scared. I'm glad that DH is coming with me to get his teeth checked, too. I won't be quite as nervous as going in alone. I have been petrified of the dentist ever since I was... Read more
True Warrior Goddesses!
Last night was miserable!! It was windy, raining steadily, and with a temperature of 4 degrees Celcius (39 Farenheit), it was a good night to stay inside, wrapped in a blanket, watching television.
However, there was a group of 19 little w... Read more
Tomorrow is Goal Date
Well, as tomorrow is my goal date to be down to 135 pounds, it looks like I won't make my goal. That really isn't bothering me. I'm so close, that it just doesn't matter if it takes a few extra days.
I know that my Vegas trip messed me ... Read more
BAM!! Another milestone hit! Yesterday, I said goodbye to the 140's. More like kicked them to the curb!
It seems like it took so long to lose that last pound. I was so close for an entire week, and couldn't make it over that hurdle.

I took a trip and didn't have to leave the farm!
Wow, am I beat. I took a cold medication last night to calm this terrible dry cough I have. Well, I didn't take a close enough look at it, and I took the non-drowsy one! I managed to get to sleep, until Midnight!! After that I laid in bed un... Read more
The Kindness of the Universe
Well, the Universe is being very kind to us today!!
My daughter's soccer coach sent me an email just a few minutes ago, saying that he was aware of her gymnastics schedule, and has made one of her practice days right after school, and sched... Read more
My Poor Little Girl
This blog isn't about me. It's about my daughter. She has a dilema and a decision to make that is breaking her heart (and mine too, because I hurt when she hurts!).
She has been in gymnastics for years (since she was 6 - she's now 14), an... Read more
Almost Another Milestone
What do you know!!! I weighed myself this morning and I'm now at a lower weight than I was two years ago, when I over-worked and stressed myself skinny (well, skinnier). Boy, did I ever pack it back on fast then, when the stress and the work ... Read more
Snow, Snow, Go Away!!
Here it is, Monday morning, and it's snowing!!!
I was going to walk to work this morning, but then I thought, "it's too cold", "my hair will get ruined", etc. etc.
So, this is a day that the weather has beaten me. What a wuss!!! I th... Read more
