  • Broccoli Oops Soups and my appointment.

    7/30/2016 5:36:59 PM, by DOTCHILATHAM

    I decided I wanted a soup today and went to make Broccoli cheese soup. It's light, not too low on calories, and it tastes good. I am used to making enough for a group. I am not used to cooking for one. I don't think it saves well either. So I was JUST making it for me. Only I totally screwed i... Read more

    7/28/2016 10:39:07 AM, by PATTYKLAVER

    For a long time, I wondered what I would do when Mom was no longer with me. Mom passed on July 17. Planning the service was one thing I concentrated on. Making sure everyone was okay at the restaurant took some time. (Chasing Helena around helped there, too.) Mom was in an assisted living ap... Read more

    7/27/2016 11:37:33 AM, by SNSHYNE37

    When Pokemon Go first came out I was the typical adult that shook my head and couldn't understand what the big deal was. My boyfriend decided to download the game, and slowly started wanting to "go chase Pokemon". While I found this amusing, I went with him because this is the first he has wanted ... Read more

    7/26/2016 10:43:01 PM, by DOTCHILATHAM

    After my rant yesterday, and after feeling very sick from eating too much (even though I barely hit 1500), it dawned on me that maybe when I add exercise to my log, it adds calories to my diet for me. I asked on mobile chat and it was confirmed. Lol, I AM eating 1500 calories a day if I don't count... Read more

  • Being Me

    7/7/2016 7:08:06 PM, by CORKYLEE

    I have become increasingly discouraged...why..why...why can I not do what need to be done? Although never competitive, I tried challenges, rewards, motivational thoughts....little progress.

  • Setting an Example

    7/2/2016 4:32:43 PM, by PATTYKLAVER

    I never thought of myself as one who was setting an example to others. But...I have noticed a couple things in the past month. I met up with a girl that I hadn't seen in a while. She told me how I inspired her to exercise because she saw me walking all the time. When I walk, I take a plastic gro... Read more

    7/2/2016 11:17:24 AM, by DEBJAE

    I am experiencing that heavy feeling when I run that makes me want to stop and walk. Not that anything is wrong with walking, but my goal is about running. I started running about 6 years ago and slowly worked my way to a 5k race. That was inspiring so I kept it up. A few years later, I moved to... Read more
