It's Mardi Gras Time
Saturday, I'm going to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. My husband and I have gone almost every year for the last few years. Last year, I had begun another effort to lose weight and had been on a pretty good streak when we went. I didn't eat horri... Read more
A New Year's Resolution CAN Mean Something
I'll be honest. Every year I resolve to lose weight. I was consistent in that way. And consistently, I never did it. Or not for long. A resolution means to resolve to do something, and I don't think I've ever truly resolved to do something... Read more
It's 2 days before Thanksgiving, and I'm so excited. Not only is my Mom, Dad, Grandmother, sister Raquel and her 2 kids coming from Michigan to have dinner at my house for the first time, but my sister Shanna has decided to fly in from San Dieg... Read more
This is a quick entry that will probably get longer, as I write. I just wanted to note the things I've been doing that have been working for me. I have a fear of losing my motivation and losing all the gains I've made.
I've started ru... Read more
October 16, 2008
In two days, I have my 20 year high school reunion. I haven't lost as much weight as I wanted, but I feel good anyway. I feel strong. I feel like I look good. Maybe not skinny, but I'm getting there. And I know it. And I know that I'll con... Read more
I did it! Okay, not all of it--yet.
I'm really excited. Today I definitively went below 170. It's about time. It seemed like it was taking forever. So at this point, I thought I would be closer to my goal. So what? I'm still on the right track. I'm healthier. My clothes ar... Read more
A sad anniversary.
Well, it's the anniversary of 9/11. As usual, I was totally oblivious until I figured out what the fire engine with the flag hanging from it was trying to say. I immediately teared up. It still makes me cry to think of it. So I probably usua... Read more
I was tested.
Last night I was feeling so stressed out. My husband was working late, my kids were good, but just a little argumentative and rambunctious. Nothing too bad, but it was getting to me. I was really close to saying "that's it, I'm taking a break... Read more
I haven't added anything in awhile. I'm staying pretty consistent with both my eating and my exercise. Unfortunately, the scale is moving downward v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y. But it did start moving some. I had just hoped to be farther along by now... Read more
I'm finally seeing some results on the scale. I tried to be patient, but it was hard. I know I'm getting more muscular. I can see and feel the muscles, but I wasn't losing much weight or seeing it in inches, either. So I started doing more a... Read more
Feeling better for being consistent!
Okay--I lost some weight. And a half an inch, here and there. Furthermore, as I was getting dressed, my husband walked by and said how good I looked. And that was all but naked! He said my legs were especially looking toned. My legs have al... Read more
Well, I guess it hasn't been that long since I started, but I've lost a couple of pounds and that's it. I'm getting very discouraged, even though I haven't really given it much time. I'm not ready to give up yet, though. I still have a goal--... Read more
I'm feeling good about myself, because I'm exercising regularly again. I just wish I could control my eating a little better. I understand why I want to, say, eat a lot of yummy cookies, but why can't I stop the mindless munching on things I d... Read more
Working on weight loss again. Hopefully, this time it takes.... Read more
