Reason #3 for losing weight

Saturday, January 09, 2010      3 comments

Reason #3: I will stop comparing myself to everyone else in the room. Whenever I go anywhere, it is an automatic response to see how I measure up to everyone else. Am I the fattest, the oldest, the worst dressed? But mostly -- am I the f... Read more

Reason #2 - "Wherever I go, there I am"

Friday, January 08, 2010      7 comments

I've always liked the quote in my blog title, and it relates to my next card which reads: "I want to be comfortable in my own skin -- more self-accepting and less self-critical." Like many of us, I have issues with the messages I received ... Read more

Thursday, January 07, 2010      4 comments

I am really trying to re-focus my efforts this month on the principles of the Beck book. One of the core principles of her book is to make a list of personal reasons you have for losing weight, write them on 3x5 cards, and review them often -- ... Read more

Giving myself credit

I'm giving myself credit for sticking to my plan yesterday despite the desertion of the troops. I'm up early today, will be on the treadmill by 6:00 am, and have my meals planned. Temptation will always be with us, we just have to cons... Read more

I had another long day, full of meetings and new assignments. I went out to lunch with my coworkers and had a grilled chicken salad at a local bar. I was surprised when it came with shredded yellow cheese on it. Who does that? (NOTE TO... Read more

Wow, did I have a great day today! I never thought I could work out BEFORE I left for work, but I did it today! I was on the treadmill by 6:45 (3.25 miles, 50 minutes) AND did the Spark Boot Camp video after that. Good thing, because ... Read more

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

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
