Falling and Getting Back up AGAIN
Thursday, March 15, 2018      3 comments

I know everyone is sick of hearing about my "starting over" attempts. But here I go again. I know if I keep on at the pace I was on, I would soon weigh 328 pounds again. Sometimes I forget all the humiliation of weighing so much, and then I am ... Read more
Once Again, I feel myself slipping
Thursday, March 01, 2018      8 comments

I hate that feeling of being out of control. I was jut thinking, "I just have no control over my eating." And then I realized "YES YOU DO!" Only I am in control of my eating decisions and I certainly have the ability to say NO. Since it's t... Read more
The Scale Finally Moved--Happy Valentine's Day To Me!!
Wednesday, February 14, 2018      5 comments

It didn't move much, but after two solid weeks of being 211.something, I'll take it. This morning: 210.8. FINALLY! Down from 211 lbs. Now to work on getting back to ONE-derland. Had a wonderful day yesterday. Today might be a challenge. Youngest... Read more
Toothache and Scale Frustration
Saturday, February 10, 2018      8 comments

After a whole week of eating right, and NO binging, the scale shows that I've GAINED .8 lbs. That's POINT eight, not EIGHT. Somebody misinterpreted my saying I had lost .6 pounds the other day to say SIX pounds. NOPE. On January 31, after ONE we... Read more
Weighing Daily--Not All I Had Hoped For--But More Motivating
Thursday, February 08, 2018      6 comments

The scale this morning was exactly the same as yesterday: 211.0! There I put it out there. I am well into 200-ville and I am not happy about it. But it's better than the 221 lbs. I weighed on Jan. 24, and for that I am grateful. I was hopeful th... Read more
Back to Daily Weighing
Wednesday, February 07, 2018      6 comments

I made it one week. But I knew the scale was not going to be kind because I had a couple bad days over the weekend. Or as someone suggested I call it, a couple days when I went off track. I'm not bad or good, I'm always good. At least that's wh... Read more
Staying Away From The Scale
Friday, February 02, 2018      5 comments

I'm a daily weigher, at least when I'm on track, and not binging like crazy. When I get in one of those binging phases, I avoid the scale like the plague, sometimes for months. And then when I get back on finally, I am horrified and motivated to... Read more
Going Cold Turkey
Wednesday, January 31, 2018      4 comments

A week ago today I started over for the umpteenth time. I basically have gone cold turkey, forgoing snacking other than an occasional piece of fruit. My cupboards are finally empty of the sugary, carby sweet snacks I had been buying so that has ... Read more
Day 3
Friday, January 26, 2018      6 comments

I've started over so many times lately. I almost hate to jinx it by posting here, but felt a need to reconnect with Spark to keep me going a little longer than I've been able to stay on track lately. I won't lie. I went off the rails in a b... Read more
An Update
Tuesday, January 09, 2018      11 comments

Several people have been asking me to update. My Spark friends are worried about me, and they should be. Here I sit, with a significant regain (67 lbs. last time I got on the scale), and struggling AGAIN! But every day there is new hope and I wi... Read more
NOT back to where I was (yet), but also not where I used to be!
Wednesday, September 20, 2017      9 comments

Duane's dad, Harold, who turned 89 on Monday, is visiting us from Iowa right now. In February, he lost his second wife after a very short illness, so he is alone again (after losing Duane's mother to cancer in 1999), and I have invited him to st... Read more
Okay--Trying Weight Watchers AGAIN!
Monday, September 11, 2017      7 comments

So, my starting over on my own didn't work out so well. Now I'm up to 186.8. That hard work of August is out the window, I regained the 5 lbs. I lost during that month, and I've got to STOP gaining and START losing again. Yesterday WW, sen... Read more
A Look In The Mirror and Starting Over AGAIN -- Day ONE!!
Thursday, August 31, 2017      8 comments

Yesterday when I woke up, I walked into my bathroom and looked in the mirror. I saw an old woman. A woman, that I felt in that moment, would look old no matter what she weighed. ... Read more
Day Ten--Back on Track!!
Thursday, August 24, 2017      5 comments

Every day on track is a victory. I'm not perfect--far from it--but dedicated to staying as true as possible to the WW plan and cutting out most of my snacking. My snacks are healthy and limited these days, and I know it needs to stay that way ev... Read more
Day Eight and Nine--Back on Track
Wednesday, August 23, 2017      4 comments

I guess I've fallen down on my commitment to blog daily for 30 days. The days go by so quickly and before I know it, it's bedtime and I haven't blogged. Oh well. At least I haven't fallen down on staying on track. I keep the snacking down, eat s... Read more
