Off course but not sinking

I've not been staying in touch here. No tracking, weighing, etc. Just me and my FitBit adding activity minutes automatically. Made a change to my diet last week and already feel much better. In 2004 I was diagnosed Lactose Intolerant and... Read more

Now scheduled for July 1st for the cruise. Hoping third time is a charm on this. Everyone cross your fingers or whatever you do that works for good luck please. I've been off schedule diet and exercise-wise for the last couple of weeks bu... Read more
Swimsuit arrived yesterday...

It is so cute on! With my chest, no way I could have gotten one size smaller to work. The dress part isn't tight to the body and is well below the crotch area so the inner thigh problem area is covered. Now if we can just book a cruise... Read more
I bought a swimsuit....

OK, I ordered it online from DressBarn. Have no idea how it will look though because they don't have them in the store. This is the first swimsuit I've purchased in about 5 or more years. And the ones I did buy were from Walmart, simple large... Read more
Weather is much nicer now

Hope it stays that way too. I have lots to do this weekend. Staying below my weight chart goal by a couple of pounds. That is encouraging for me and I've lost 1.5 pounds this week. Was able to get 1.25 miles in at the track yesterday and... Read more
Bad weather this weekend

I was going to work in the yard on Sunday but we have rain in the forecast from now through then. Today has been rainy and cold (OK, 61 but the wind is cold). Took apart one bed frame to put together another. Dropped a part of the old h... Read more
Steady going

I haven't been successful in making a blog entry every 4 to 5 days lately. Need to get back on track after being sick and the usual craziness called life. Not sure I'm going to make the 6 pound challenge this month but will be close. Work... Read more
Cruise Update & Valentines Day
Thursday, February 14, 2013      1 comments

Got the official email that the cruise has been canceled. Three weeks for the refund to be processed (it was paid in full). So this weekend my brother and I will be contacting Carnival to book one in May. Same ship because it's easier to leav... Read more
Bad news day

I have 2 cruises booked this year, the most exciting and my reason for getting back on track is a transatlantic in November. To get a discount on the cost, I needed to book another one before it to be a returning traveler. So we booked one to ... Read more
My new FitBit

I think I'm really going to love having this. Just got it set up on Monday night (left it at work all weekend) and loaded my numbers for yesterday. I managed to do 10,000 steps even when I didn't think I would - I work a sit down job. Lov... Read more
7 pounds down...

But I came in second in the office weight loss contest. It's not determined by who lost the most but the percentage of weight lost. I actually lost more weight but by percentage I was behind by 0.27%. Of course the person that won weighs 50 p... Read more

We have weigh in on Thursday for the contest at work. This one determines who the winner is for January. I'm feeling pretty good but we have another person that has been really losing in previous weeks. I'm tracking my food and water co... Read more
No real words of wisdom....

Just a personal update. At home I'm dealing with plumbing issues with an older home. I usually try to fix these myself but this one may just be more than I can handle. On the HIP side, I'm tracking and doing some exercise at least 4 d... Read more

I gave myself a goal to make a blog entry at least once every 5 days. More if I suddenly have something to say. Today I'm down 5 pounds in a little over 2 weeks. I know this will slow down as time goes by, but I'm happy with how this is going... Read more
Diet is a dirty word, be HIP instead
Monday, January 14, 2013      3 comments

I don't want to use that word, it's defeating and depressing. It makes you think of doing without good food - at least what we consider "good food". Our minds turn into that child that is rebellious when told not to do something, we do the opp... Read more
