Happy November! Yes, I know it's been awhile...

Saturday, November 01, 2014      3 comments

First off, let me just say that I know it has been awhile. There has been much going on in my world. The months of September/October were rough months for our family. My mom fell and, ultimately, broke her back. She had a compression fractur... Read more

October Ramblings

Saturday, October 04, 2014      3 comments

Sometimes we get complacent and old habits creep in...not always good ones. During these times, we need to refocus on what we need to do if we truly want to hit our goals. As I was watching Biggest Loser (I know I said I wouldn't watch again) ... Read more

Sometimes this journey can be so frustrating. Ups and downs of the weight loss and weight gain...I know that this is a process and I have to stick with what I know works. I need to stop focusing so much on the number of the scale and focus on ... Read more

DEAR CONCERNED NEIGHBOR...take a moment to see his perspective...

Wednesday, July 09, 2014      4 comments

For those of you on my FB page, you know I have been on my weight loss journey for longer than I'd care to admit. However, I was SADDENED and OUTRAGED when I saw this earlier. I am sad for this neighbor who clearly thinks that this man who acc... Read more

Hello? Hello? Is anyone there?

I have felt a little disconnected lately. I think part of it is because I failed to track for a few days and pain/stress, etc. just got in the way of what I was trying to do. I’ve really had to remind myself over the last few days, seemingly s... Read more

I have been trying to do a bit of soul searching of late. There have been some crises (minor, but it seemed worse at the time) that I have had to deal with that have sort of prompted this current bit of soul searching. If you have met me in pe... Read more

Yesterday was a bit crazy. My mother has been running a fever but we don’t yet know why. Hopefully we will find out today. She called me this morning and seems to be feeling better. DD12 had her talent show last night. We are gearing up for... Read more

I volunteered to co-organize a charity walk for Conquer Chiari again this year. Last night, we had a fundraising event at McAlister’s Deli. I probably ate more PointsPlus than I would care to admit, but I didn’t eat all 49 of my extras and I d... Read more

Day 64 of my 100 Day Challenge and Weigh in Update

Saturday, May 03, 2014      3 comments

I know I have really been slacking on writing the blogs and keeping everyone updated. We've had a lot going on around here. DS13, whose birthday is today so he will now be referred to as DS14, went to California for the World Championships in ... Read more

Friday, April 18, 2014      3 comments

So I am checking in after my weigh in last night…and I lost the 5.2 that I gained the week before. Still not certain how that gain happened in the first place, but I am thankful for the loss. I am trying to be more diligent in my tracking. Al... Read more

Day 42 of my 100 Day Challenge

Friday, April 11, 2014      3 comments

As of last night at my weigh in, I gained 5.2 pounds over last week’s weigh in. I am upset by this, more than I can really express. I have been walking 10,000 steps or more per day and trying to eat well. I can honestly say after looking back... Read more

Day 36/100 of my Personal Challenge

Saturday, April 05, 2014      0 comments

Yes, I know I have been lax again in my blogging. I think I was in a bad mindset. I had 2 weeks of gains, they were both less than a pound, but equaled a pound. I think that it was the not eating thing, but I managed to lose 2 pounds this week. ... Read more

I will likely see a loss on the scale this week…thanks to the dentist. Yep, I have mouth pain again. They were trying to remove the temporary crowns and although it hurt, I thought I could suck it up because they would pop off in a minute. Ye... Read more
