  • I Did It!

    1/26/2015 6:10:02 PM, by NARNIAROSE2003

    Got up this morning at 5:45 am, went to the office, went to the fitness center and got on the Elliptical intending to do "probably 20 minutes, it's been awhile so 30 is probably not realistic." HOLY COW. After 5 minutes, I thought I was going to die. Then I really was honest with myself and realiz... Read more

  • Sunday brunch

    1/25/2015 7:29:40 PM, by YESICANYESIWILL

    I did very well at brunch. I did indulge in prime rib, but just a thin slice. And I limited my dessert treats to 2 of the petit fours, bypassing cheesecake, cookies, and many more larger treats. There were 7 of us at the table. My son was at an event in San Diego, so I was planning to stay a... Read more

    Boiled a bunch of eggs, have pre-portioned snacks, and already packed my breakfast, lunch and two snacks for work tomorrow. Packed my jewelry, undies, shoes, dress and toiletries to shower at the fitness center at my office before work. Workout clothes ready to hop into as soon as I get up (only g... Read more

  • Weight Gain! Argh!!!

    1/24/2015 5:17:15 PM, by YESICANYESIWILL

    A pound and a half, which is frustrating because I have been vigilant this week. I know it is just a normal fluctuation and I'll probably be down even more next week, but for today, I'm disappointed. Did you ever notice that the word "weight" contains the letters WTH? That's how I felt about it ... Read more

    1/24/2015 12:47:10 PM, by NARNIAROSE2003

    Someone is coming to view the house today so we have to vacate for an hour or so. Headed to the mall to shop for cool athletic shoes (pink, I hope) for the workouts I'm starting on Monday. Might try to find some cute workout outfits as well. Good motivation! Also excited about the walking and ad... Read more

  • Working out is becoming easier!

    1/24/2015 10:20:24 AM, by MISSA526

    I actually did an easy walking workout, 20 minutes of yoga, and lifted weights with Shawn. They were heavy for me and I did very very very slow reps haha, but I made it through them. He had a weight bench so it was a lot harder then my usual dumbells because you have to count the weight of the barbe... Read more

  • Finally losing again!

    1/23/2015 11:11:08 PM, by LIZMORGAN

    After hitting a holiday-related plateau that spanned most of November-January, during which I gained and lost the same 6-7lbs over and over again, it seems I've finally broken through! I'm down to an all new low, and only 1lb away from my (theoretical) half-way point! Yesterday I officially register... Read more

  • You Cain't Always Get What You Want....

    1/22/2015 7:36:19 PM, by NARNIAROSE2003

    ...but you often will get what you need! One of my co-workers stopped at my office door early this morning. Now, he NEVER has done that before, so I immediately said, "What do you want?" thinking that some big issue had arisen that I needed to address. He pulled aside his jacket and pointed to hi...

    So I posted a few days back in "Balancing the Budget" that I had planned out every meal and every snack for this week. And I posted in "Conviction" in yesterday's blog that we can always fight harder to resist temptation. And despite that....I just ate 350 calories in chocolate covered pretzel... Read more

    1/20/2015 7:10:03 PM, by NARNIAROSE2003

    So last night after working off a few thousand calories, I made sauteed tilapia with tomatoes and some parmesan cheese. Yummy. The problem appeared when suddenly I couldn't eat anymore - something got stuck. Which does happen on occasion because of the RNY I had back in 2001. It sucks. Basicall... Read more

    1/19/2015 8:48:29 AM, by NARNIAROSE2003

    Gave myself a couple of weeks to let the severe pain in my leg subside. Well, it has - and I'm betting it was about the 30 pounds and fluid I had gained. Now that both of those are on the downswing, it's getting much better. Will start out easy, but this week I pledge to at LEAST 15 minutes of exe... Read more

The mental part of the game intrigues me. The strategic placement of the ball. The analysis of your competition's strengths and weak... Read more

    Ever have a day where you just wanna give up? I've worked so many hours these past couple weeks (70 hours a week lately), and I got out of work at midnight last night with only 7 hours to go home, sleep, and get up to work a 16 hour shift today that started at 7am. Well on the way to work this morni... Read more

    Good morning SparkPeople! I'm not much of a blogger these days, so I didn't think I'd ever utilize this part of the site, but I think it's about time I sit down and talk about my journey thus far. I thought about going back and telling you about my history of yo-yo dieting, but you've probably ... Read more

    This suit has a story behind it. It originally belonged to Marie, a dear friend and former patient of mine. When she passed, I asked her family if I might have this to remember her. She was a woman full of life and energy, even i... Read more

    Well, I've done it already. I wrote a check for 2014. I don't write many checks anymore, but I had to transfer some money from an account at a different bank, and it was easier to do it this way than to go to the other bank and withdraw cash. The teller didn't catch my mistake, either. My in... Read more

    I went to bed earlier and fell asleep with no trouble, but now I've awoken and feel fully alert. Of course, later today I'll be exhausted and will need a nap. Usually when I have insomnia, it comes in the way of early morning wakening. I suppose waking at 1 am is also considered early morning, bu... Read more

    Happy New Year! 2015... can you believe that we are closer to 2030 than we are to 2000? Where does the time go! One thing I would not care to do at the moment is reflect on the number of pounds I have gained and lost over the past 15 years. My overarching goal for this year is to get, and stay, ... Read more

    Wow... an entire year has gone by so quickly! This past year it was my goal to lose 100lbs. I didn't hit my goal, but there are a lot of things I did do! -I lost 70lbs! While I didn't lose any weight in November or December (stupid holidays!), I maintained my 70lb weight loss through both month... Read more

    Didn't do much today at all. Went to Kohl's and found an awesome winter jacket on the clearance rack. Then, while standing in line, some woman walked up to me and gave me a $10 off coupon! I had a $10 merchandise credit, so the grand total was $22 and change! Whoo hoo! My Mom wanted to go to Ma... Read more

    There's a great joke on Futurama where the villain of the episode threatens to destroy the main character's existence and his response is "but exist is all I do!" My resolution for 2015 is to stop merely existing. Last year I came home from a NYE party and hastily scribbled everything I wanted to wo... Read more

    We didn't do a whole lot today. My Mom has a friend that she meets for breakfast once a year when she's visiting here. That was today, so I took her to the coffee shop, then went and got some groceries until it was time to go pick her up. This afternoon we went to REI, then I dropped my Mom off a... Read more

    We started out at Naked Foods Cafe. I had a fruit salad for breakfast; seasonal melon, a few strawberries and some mango made for an unusual, but tasty, combination. Our first stop was Goodwill, a store at which I have typically not had any luck. I've always found their merchandise to be a bit on... Read more

    The sky is a brilliant shade of blue. The air is crisp with a bit of a nip to it; unusual for where I live (southern CA). I am the only one awake at the moment; my Mom is napping in the recliner and my son and husband have yet to awaken. Lazy bones, lol! I've already done my housework for the da... Read more
