And again . . .
For someone with as much awareness as I showed in my last couple of posts, I sure do fall back into old habits. Huh. And well. Well well.
My last two loved and lovely and tiring and wonderful kids are now 17 and 18. Unimaginable, and re... Read more
Today Iíll count my calories, get in 30 minutes of exercise, and use a short walk around our block when the kids get to me.
I have to find a balance. I get uncomfortable, sort of freaked out, by looking good and attracting male ... Read more
And one more time, with feeling!
I've been a lurker for a long time here. I've lost weight, and put it back on. I've been inspired my amazing people on sparkpages. I still feel a pull to check on my buds, even if they haven't heard from me in a very long time. And I always ... Read more

We love being in southern California. We're near my year old grandson, and his beautiful mama... Read more
Less Sugar - More Walking!
I'm making verrry slow progress - but I'm ok with that. I walked a 5K last weekend. I wasn't fast, but I stuck with it and I feel good about it. I've been having a fair amount of pain in my joints, and have been trying to sort out aging issue... Read more
It's All Good
Okay - here goes! I'm ready to start with some realistic goals and rewards. I went to a WW meeting this morning, and when I opened up my weekly pamphlet, I saw a picture of a jar with dollar bills and a label with a goal/reward statement. I'v... Read more
I've had a rough couple of weeks - in spite of my focus on behavior modification, etc. Sick kid, broken dishwasher, hours spent at home waiting for deliveries and repairmen. Then there're my new school schedule, an intense workload, the crazin... Read more
Okay . . . sitting here thinking again. I'm in a health psychology class this spring, which I ended up in because it fit my schedule while fulfilling a degree requirement. What I didn't know when I enrolled, is how relevant to my life this cla... Read more
One More Slow Step
I had a really good week and added another tool to support my efforts. Iíve done Jenny Craig in the past, and was successful at getting weight off, but I didnít keep it off when the stress hit the fan.
Itís been a very long time since I lo... Read more
Happy Slow Pace
Starting to feel better - and enjoying my moderate approach. My knees are feeling better, and my energy is starting to come up a bit.
I had my hair highlighted this week - and it's such a lift! I want to do more, I feel younger with ev... Read more
I'm changing my strategy, moving towards a truer version of what I've talked about but haven't practiced. I had the right idea, taking each moment and meal as it comes, evaluating and trying to do what's best for me in the moment. And then I m... Read more
Motivation Evaluation Permutation
I've just returned from a week spent caring for my grandson while my daughter returned to work. What an amazing blessing for me - to have the time with this precious child, and to feel helpful to my daughter and her family. I was reminded how... Read more
Returning the Favor
Boy am I getting good at do-overs! At least at the start. But after spending the fall putting my house and family back in order, I'm finding a little more mental space to deal with my own stuff, both emotional and physical. I'm feeling more ... Read more
Here I am, Again
But it's so good to be back on SP. Things are improving for my daughter, so they're improving for me as well. I'm back in school and have begun taking a social dance class for my PE requirement. I was intimidated by the idea of it, but it's t... Read more
We're moving into a calmer period, making changes to get some small sense of control in our world. Taking action makes me feel worlds better! Worlds.
I've started easing back into some movement, something small but significant every day. ... Read more
