Ready for the New Year
Wednesday, January 02, 2013      1 comments

Whether I wanted it to get here or not, I must say, I'm glad that the holiday season is coming to an end. I had a few bad weeks with Christmas and New Year's being back-to-back holidays, but oh well. I said I'd get right back on track beginning ... Read more
Hoping for Something Better

With the new year, I hope that I can finally feel normal again. I hate this time of year. I wish I could enjoy it the way I once did. I loved the lights and Santa and the Christmas songs and midnight mass (getting to stay up way past my bedtime)... Read more

I am so excited to say that I have finally dropped my first ten pounds. I have set a new goal for another 10 by birthday in February. What I really am excited about, even more than losing weight, is that I stuck with this for a full seven weeks ... Read more

I am so sore from yesterday’s workout, and I guess I chalk up my small weight gain to water retention? Maybe muscle? I don’t know, but it’s ok. I know I did everything right yesterday, so there is no reason for feeling bad. Today has been ... Read more

Good news at the scale today. I have .3 lbs to go to my first goal of 10 lbs. I'm very happy about it, but some things are getting in the way of really celebrating this success. I know how hard I'm working to reach my goals, and I should be jump... Read more

It's day 7 of this week, and I feel so great about my accomplishments this week. I had mostly good days (Monday--not so good), and I'm finished in less than seven hours. I woke up this morning with a little bit on my mind, and I felt that I coul... Read more
Forgiveness, Love, and Acceptance
Friday, November 30, 2012      2 comments

Usually, I am an all–or-nothing kind of person. I have been that way since I can remember. I wanted all the M&Ms from the bag my sister and I were supposed to share. I wanted all the newer dolls and the raggedy, hands-chewed-off, hair-a-matted-m... Read more
Getting Back on Track
Wednesday, November 14, 2012      7 comments

I have had a few bad days. I ate way too much, drank, and didn't exercise any of those days. I really started to feel down again and began to feel guilty for my poor choices. They were poor choices, but those choices do not have to keep down. Th... Read more

I have not been feeling so well today, but I'm not so sick that I had to be in bed. Therefore, I made good use of my time and cleaned. My bathroom needed a really good cleaning. I have stuffed things in drawers and cabinets and as a cosmotologis... Read more

When I first got started on SP, I was just looking because I was curious. I was lying in bed one night, and saw something about SP. I don't really remember what it was or on what channel I saw it, but I was a little intrigued. To think, there wa... Read more

Today has been a great day. I have spent some real quality time with my youngest daughter the last couple of days, and I am so thankful that I have had the opportunity to do so. She makes me smile, and I just love being around her. Yesterd... Read more
Something Brief

I remember a couple of weeks thinking, why is that others can lose weight, but I can not. Today, I am saying that those people who have lost weight--and better yet, kept it off--do not have anything special that I do not possess myself. We all h... Read more

I'd like to start this blog by describing what was typical in the past for me. I would get up and step on the scale...every single morning. Then I would either like what I saw or hate it, but I would always let the scale tell me how to feel for ... Read more
It Really Could be Worse

I hadn't planned on blogging every single day, but something happened today, and I just had to share. I feel that every thing that happens, happens for a reason. What we do with that is up to us. For so many years I have struggled to lose and ha... Read more
I'm in the Right Place

Before I posted my first blog entry, I typed and deleted and typed and deleted because I was so nervous about posting. I am insecure, and I always worry what others will think of me. When I walk into a room, I feel that everyone there is judging... Read more
