  • Life REALLY is good.

    4/29/2017 5:41:32 PM, by BECKMIT

    Still getting used to my freedom from home healthcare. Seems like it has changed my entire attitude - like I'm REALLY well now. And the weird thing is that it makes me much more determined to get my weight off. I've had some very good days sticking to my food regimen and I'm kind of anxious to see ... Read more

  • As good as it gets . . .

    4/28/2017 4:34:49 PM, by BECKMIT

    What a wonderful day. Sunshine, campfire, hamburgers off the grill, total relaxation. And sticking with my program. This is just about as good as it can get. ... Read more

  • This ole house . . .

    4/26/2017 12:27:04 PM, by BECKMIT

    I'm always very honest in putting my feelings in my blog, It takes away so much of the "imaginary" issues when I write about my feelings, progress (or lack thereof), food issues, general day-to-day challenges, etc,. Today I find myself thrilled that I've overcome so many obstacles over the past... Read more

  • Good, good news!!!

    I was FINALLY discharged from home healthcare today. Seven months postop and they finally turned me loose!!! I have to say it was bitter-sweet. The nurses have become like family and I'm going to miss them terribly. But after such a long time being under their care, it's a good feeling to know I can... Read more

  • No loss, no gain . . .

    4/22/2017 2:15:56 PM, by BECKMIT

    No loss today, BUT, no gain either!!! I can definitely live with that. I'll take some time until my next weigh-in to reflect on the reasons I am making this gradual life change. Reading my blogs is a great motivator since they clearly state why I started on this life-changing journey; I tend t... Read more

  • Almost there!!!

    4/20/2017 2:08:38 PM, by BECKMIT

    My home health care nurse told me they'll probably be releasing me early next week. YIPPEE! They've been making regular visits for 7 months and I was feeling like it was never going to end. I know I'll miss seeing them as we've become very good friends, but I'm happy I'm so close to regaining my "no... Read more

  • An honest reflection . . .

    4/17/2017 12:05:44 PM, by BECKMIT

    I've had a hard time lately getting, and staying, on track. I think the worst part of "falling off the wagon" is having to deal with the guilt. When I see the scale going up, and I know the reason it's going up is due to the poor choices I've made, it's very discouraging. Thinking I had enough contr... Read more

  • Happy Easter

    What an incredible event the Easter Holiday is based on. Happy Easter!!! God bless.... Read more

  • Sometimes ya just gotta see it in writing . . .

    4/12/2017 1:42:32 PM, by BECKMIT

    I'm having a heck of a time getting, and staying, back on track. Seems like for every step forward, I take two steps back. Home healthcare is still coming in three times a week (6 months); I think the end is in sight as the wound is currently shrinking at a fast rate. However, now I'm having a... Read more

  • I can do more.

    4/8/2017 3:15:00 PM, by SUMMARAH

    My brother recently started a 21 Day Challenge group on facebook to do 100 push ups & 100 sit ups per day for 21 days. I didn't officially join, because I was worried that I wouldn't be able to do it after not having exercised consistently for such a long time; and I told him that I didn't think I c... Read more

  • Controlled break

    4/1/2017 11:55:54 AM, by BECKMIT

    Purposely took a break yesterday. Was having a bad day with this cold and all so decided to take a break but keep track. It feels good to be able to do that with such control. Thank you, SparkPeople for the tools to make this possible.... Read more
