Hey Gang - Well I hurt my back (strained 2 major muscles) on March 15th. I've been unable to exercise since then - so I've not even come to read much since it's pretty much a bummer to even know what all I'm missing! I'm still eating right, et... Read more
Another Pound Lost
Well, today was my official "personal weigh-in day". I was really hoping to have lost 2 pounds this week, based on extra hours of exercise, etc etc. HOWEVER, I'd lost 2 pounds the week before, so maybe having only lost 1 pounds this week - ju... Read more
Ending my Personal Boot Camp
Well for the last 5 days, I have exercised twice as much as normal (well more like 3 or 4 times as much), eaten so deliberately healthy, & had so much more water than usual that I am glad I'm on the end of this 5-day "mini-boot-camp" thing impos... Read more

A 5-Day Boot-Camp
I'm about to embark on a 5-day personal boot-camp.
Since I surprisingly hit a good weight on my weigh-in, I realized that it's going to be even harder to lose now that I weigh less than where I started with this journey of losing weight &... Read more
A Little Change of Plans
I typically have my own personal "weigh-in" day every Friday morning. I also have lots of things working AGAINST me, in that I have a severe thyroid problem that prevents me from losing as quickly as most, since my metabolism doesn't respond so... Read more
Well, folks...here we are in the middle of the week. For me, it means that I am 2 days away from my personal weekly weigh-in day. Every Friday morning, I step on the scales to see if I have lost ANY pounds or even ONE pound as an reward for al... Read more
Well, I did it. I am so happy that I weighed 159 on Friday (which for the first time in a long time I am out of the 170's & 160's. HOWEVER - in my happiness, I celebrated way too much - we went out for Mexican food with friends last night, & I... Read more
Well I may be mis-using the blog-system on Spark-People, because I tend to journal, rather than add some lofty advise or helpful tips. However, I have always found that when I can read or hear from others who experience my same goals, issues, e... Read more
Ut-Oh...Here we go again ...
My "personal weigh-in day" is Friday, so this means that tomorrow morning, I will step on the scales to see if I've lost anything since last Friday. I am so hoping for a 2-pound-loss. That's unlikely, I realize, but I just felt like it would b... Read more
Thanks to Spark-Friends!
I have to admit that I was feeling a little frozen in discouragement until yesterday. I'd hoped for a quicker weight-loss, but with thyroid problems, I know it's not going to be as fast as others. SO - I "vented" a little in a blog yesterday. ... Read more
I'm a little discouraged...
Well... I've worked hard - HARD - for 6 weeks now, and I'd have thought that by now I'd have lost more than 9 pounds. :( I've exercised like CRAZY, eaten healthy ,& have been drinking LOTS of water. I realize that with hypothyroidism , that... Read more

The day before my personal "Weigh-In"
OK ... I have officially now completed another week of healthy eating, drinking that water, & exercising.
So why is it that I get so nervous every Thursday, knowing that on Friday morning, I am going to step on that scale to see what go... Read more
