Oh man, my b*tt is really sore after walking up mount nebo yesterday! If you want to see pictures of the hike, you can go to . It was fun but challenging! I thought I was going to have a heart attack, my heart... Read more

I am really happy to have the new beginning a new year brings. I'm just READY. The holidays kicked me in the butt and I totally slacked off. I'm ready to get back on track. This morning I will join my husband's hiking club in hiking Moun... Read more

Ready for 2010!

Thursday, December 31, 2009      4 comments

On the whole, I think 2009 was really very good to me, especially on the weight-loss front. I was able to lose 20 pounds and so far have kept them off. That's the most successful I've been in a DECADE, so it's nothing to sneeze at. ... Read more

Happy & Excited

Monday, December 28, 2009      6 comments

I am a creature of habit. I like my life when it is under control, when it is predictable, when it is "just so." Unfortunately, that's not the way life goes very often! Much of life comes at us with the force and intensity of a Star War... Read more

The Road Trip from H*LL!

Saturday, December 26, 2009      6 comments

If it wasn't so pathetic it would be funny. I'm sure I'll laugh later. We left for Dallas on the 22nd. We drove 5 hours and settled around 3pm in a state park in Oklahoma. We took a walk, had a healthy dinner, and that was fine. ... Read more

On the Road Again...

Hi everyone, Had a GREAT visit with my brother. He's a lot of fun and it's been several years since I'v e seen him. Vandal's done a great job on his vacation since his daughter and son-in-law are healthy eaters -- HOW LUCKY FOR YOU,... Read more

Feeling better

Thursday, December 17, 2009      3 comments

I was feeling pretty defeated yesterday, but I feel better now. I DO need to keep reading my cards and doing what I can do. I am not helpless. I don't have to give in COMPLETELY to the dark side. AND, even more importantly, this out... Read more

Checking in

Wednesday, December 16, 2009      2 comments

Hi everyone, I have NOT been present on the site for the last week and probably won't for the NEXT week. The end of classes, finals, grading, (then rechecking grades for students who feel their grade wasn't fair), conducting a staff tr... Read more

OLD HABITS die hard

Monday, December 14, 2009      5 comments

Hi everyone, Well, the past few weeks I've been pretty bad. I've completely fallen back into the old habits of stress-eating/drinking and the scale certainly shows it. I've not exercised. I've not read my cards or hardly done anything I'... Read more

The Dreaded Christmas PotLuck

Thursday, December 10, 2009      7 comments

We had it yesterday, and I made up my mind to watch how several of my thin co-workers eat: 1. THEY DIDN'T FILL THEIR PLATES WITH EVERYTHING. The thin people did NOT fill up their plates with a helping of everything like it was their Last ... Read more

Busy week!

Tuesday, December 08, 2009      1 comments

Today is the last day of classes; tomorrow I have three 2-hour finals and Thursday I have three 2-hour finals. I do that on purpose, but it makes for two hard days (but then two easy ones!) I haven'd done well with the wine or exercise sin... Read more

Monday Moanin'

Monday, December 07, 2009      2 comments

Hey, not really. My boss hosted a "chili lunch" for her staff and I did pretty well. No desserts and just 3 saltines. The chili looked pretty healthy although more meat and less beans than I like. I did not exercise today; finals... Read more

Meltdown Friday...that continued Saturday...but Sunday I'm BACK in the Game!

Sunday, December 06, 2009      3 comments

I hate having to always be confessing my weaknesses. Friday I had an fine day, but the "THIS IS THE WEEKEND!" mentality kicked in and Beck's got kicked to the curb! It continued Saturday. I had the house to myself and after racing ar... Read more

Resetting Your Set Point? What do you think?

Thursday, December 03, 2009      8 comments

I listened to a weight-loss podcast that I downloaded from I-Tunes yesterday called "Cut the Fat." I don't know what the credentials of the podcasters were, but they gave me a new perspective that I want to share. They recommended losing 1... Read more
