Weekly Weigh In
Monday, May 01, 2017      6 comments

I lost 1.8. Which gives me 9 for the month of April. It has taken me that long to really get a handle on exactly what I am doing. But with a little practice and effort I have hit my macro numbers 2 days in a row. The last 5 days which is really ... Read more

Looking forward to weighing in. But, I know that what the scale says is not the end all. I feel better having eliminated carbs and the lower the better. I woke up early at 6:30 and took my blood sugar and I was blown away it came in at 107! It h... Read more

Yesterday was tough
Friday, January 22, 2016      8 comments

Watched two movies that both triggered sadness for me and boy did it make me want to eat. I didn't total my food until today and calorie wise didn't do bad but food choices were not so good. Too many carbs. Very much a carb day. I really need t... Read more

I am back using SparkPeople to a much greater extent to see if I can keep motivated with this new year and my weight loss goals. I would like to lose a minimum of 10lbs a month for the 8 months begining with January. That would give me close to... Read more
Reacting to diagnosis of Diabetes
Wednesday, March 11, 2015      3 comments

It is interesting to be on the other side of this fence versus being an advisor to people with this disease. My first reaction is to stomp my feet and want to go eat everything I know I shouldn't because I need to say goodby to certain foods. In... Read more

Friday, March 06, 2015      2 comments

I pretty much knew this day would come. So I don't know why I am surprised. Maybe surprise isn't the right word. More like saddened. It's been sneaking up on me for a while and now after getting the blood work back from my physical I can no long... Read more

Friday, February 27, 2015      6 comments

Went to MD for regular annual checkup. I am doing very well and have been losing weight. She is extremely pushy about wanting me to have the weight loss surgery. It really made me angry. I keep telling her I have watched my father, a stroke pati... Read more

Haven't been able to eat much having made myself very sick. I think I am so incredibly intolerant to lactose that it is really bad. Finally, after several days I feel better. I thought it was gaul bladder, but I don't think that is correct. I at... Read more

Yesterday I weighed in and lost 1/2 lb last week and it was a lot of work. It is hard not to lose motivation when I have so much to loose and see 1/2 lb lost for all my efforts and I increased my exercise too. I think the reality is that I am s... Read more

Wednesday, December 11, 2013      2 comments

The holidays are so difficult with family dysfunctions at their highest level with unresolved history, lack of reconciliations and insistence by members to maintain the Drama triangle of Perpetrator, Victim and Rescuer where all are competing f... Read more
