Today is my "going away party" at work after 16 years in the same department and 19 in the hospital where I work. Asked for fruit for the treat instead of cake but boss said no way. I guess we know who the boss is there. I am moving on to a p... Read more

My goal was to swim 30 minutes three times this week. I made it two times and one day I worked in the garden for 30 minutes, so overall I feel satisfied that I did get almost as much exercise. Next week I hope to add walking on the treadmill 3... Read more

On my way home from work I started talking myself out of going to the gym. About halfway there, I had an argument with myself and said it is really stupid having a membership and not going. Then I was a little kinder to myself and reminded mys... Read more

Last week I went up 8 pounds and then down 5 pounds. This week I went up 10 pounds and then over night down 10 pounds. This must be water. I drank about 10 glasses yesterday to help flush and apparently it helped. I will try that again today... Read more

Use any frozen fruit chopped up. Bananas, strawberries, peaches, for example. Take fat free yogurt (pour out the watery part) and mix half and half with fruit, adding some sweetener like splenda or stevia. This is my favorite snack. Now I ju... Read more

Weighed in today and am down a bunch. Ankles not so swollen so it must have been sodium/water retention. Drank a lot of water yesterday and tried to watch the sodium. Going out to eat seems to be a major culprit as all the restaurants automat... Read more
Finally weighed in and went up this week....

I think if I weighed in every day instead of being scared to weigh in when my ankles are swollen, I would be more careful about what I am eating, especially in the sodium department. Last week I did not weigh myself cause I knew I had consumed ... Read more
