Trying it again. I'm back for the 5th, 6th or 7th time.... I've lost track.
So here's me again. On November 7, I weighed 216 pounds at my doctor's office. One of the heaviest - if not THE heaviest I've ever been.
I've been fighting my weight since puberty.
I've used it as a way to beat myself up, hate mys... Read more
Effect of friends
Since I work so much I don't spend much time with friends. And since I am isolated I think I eat more. Food is rarely a social thing for me . It is more like something I want, but don't get at regular mealtimes (working through any breaks due to... Read more
Long time, no blog
In the past year, I have been through some pretty sad stuff. My mother was diagnosed with cancer in June of 2012, and in October 2012, she moved in with me. She went through chemo and radiation, but still died from her aggressive cancer about ... Read more
A week ago last Friday, I woke up with such severe vertigo I couldn't walk. After I stabilized myself, I crept out the door and went to work for only 8 hours, then bit the bullet and went and paid cash for an office visit (this ended up leaving... Read more
I haven't been feeling well this week. I've still gotten about 14 miles of walking in, but that's about it. Strength training has been too much to ask for.
Circumstances are serving to make me feel very depressed and sluggish. My moth... Read more
I stand corrected: July 22 will be one year!
I guess I should look at my info more closely. I was off by a month.
In 10 days it will be one year since I joined Sparkpeople - not next month! ... Read more
Next Month.... One year
Next month marks one year since I started with sparkpeople. It's been so long since I have lost even a pound (even gained 4 pounds over a weekend last month during my cycle), I have to keep looking at the bigger picture to stay focused.
Whe... Read more
I had been in a funk for about 2 days, and am I finally feeling (emotionally) better today. It's the first day of that monthly cycle, so I am in a lot of pain. With the fibro has come increased gynecological pain and irritable bowel syndrome, ... Read more
Today I did great with my food choices, and not so great with my fitness. I only did about 20 minutes of activity.
I am having alot of pain from yesterday's exertions, and my fibro is kicking in pretty good, making my back, shoulders, right... Read more
Saturday night... Sunday morning
Today my food was okay. I really needed to include more greens and veggies, but I stayed within my caloric limits and stayed active for most of the day.
I also cleaned, walked, danced and worked out. So much that I made goal and then some.... Read more
Wednesday! Hump Day....
This has been a very long week already, and so I am SO glad that tomorrow is Thursday. I have a very long day scheduled - over 12 hours - and so I am looking even more forward to Friday.
Today I really just dropped the ball on choosing a... Read more
I must say, this week at work has been nuts! Nothing momentous, but lots of stress.
On a brighter note, I went to do a monthly visit and one of the staff who hasn't seen me in two months did not recognize me because she says (!) that I h... Read more
Well, I made it through the workday, came home and walked to my Al-Anon meeting (about 1/4 mile away) and had a great meeting. Then I came home and walked another mile or so. Then I came back to the house and split a Skinny Cow ice cream sandw... Read more
Mother's Day fallout/Monday Monday
Yesterday was Mother's Day and my husband decided he was going to cook our meals yesterday instead of me, to give me a break. He tries hard, but he is not a very healthy or versatile cook. As a result I felt kind of cruddy yesterday and am sic... Read more
Day Two: Fuelband
Well, Day 2 is going well. I passed my 2000 goal in late afternoon (as opposed to about 2PM yesterday) because today was an office day and I wasn't training any new hires.
I am still pretty enamored with the Fuelband overall. Yesterday I h... Read more
