This has been a tough year at school. I kind of let things slip. This month I decided to go back to all the things I had let slide. I am making an effort to record my food every day. I am getting out and walking with my Pug, Bella, and starting to rewrite in my journal.

Staring again. My blood sugar and weight were out of control. I'm tracking my calories and my carbs each day. I'm trying to keep my carbs around 130 each day. Also, I'm working out most days. I feel really good. Blood sugar is looking better.

Just keep at it. I was hoping to get more exercise in this summer, but I have had the worst time. In a fit of gracefulness I broke my little toe on my right foot on 6/27. I couldn't put a shoe on two weeks--so walking my usual route was down the tubes. Couldn't jump rope either. My plan was to ride my bike to get the exercise in, but...

On July 1, I decided to take short cut on my usual bike route, got into some bad road and took the hide off my left leg. It is still healing, but I can't kneel down because to the huge, unsightly scab below my left kneecap. Needless to say the exercise hasn't been what I had hoped, but you just have to keep at it.

My husband says I need to go back to school where I am less of a hazard to myself.

I had a good thought about making weekly goals, but I didn't follow through. I'm back where I started and trying to get real. I'm exercising and eating better.

I have started to lose (actually did during Christmas break). My biggest problem lately is not having consistent exercise time.

It's so hard to get back on track. I tell myself I'm not going to do it this year (the holiday eating), and yet every year I can't stop. I did do well in between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but what I did over Christmas erased what I had lost! I've decided to pick one goal a week I want to work on: this week it's to weigh/measure all foods. emoticon

Still not losing like I would like, but my clothes are fitting much better, so I guess I am really not too worried. Stress is getting better, but still more than I would like.

Was here in 2011 with good intentions - then wandered off the path - picked up some additional pounds I didn't have before - but found my way back the first of the year this year. Trying to not get inticed off the path by what feels good at the moment - and if I do to not continue wandering - but get back on the path!!!

I've hit a plateau right now. Things were going pretty good until school started. Now I am on the road to school before it is light and back home later so that by the time I am ready to walk it is dark. I don't like walking with a flashlight, but some sections of sidewalk around my neighborhood are too damaged to walk on without good lighting.

I know some of my eating is due to stress. I am dealing with my 94 year old father and his health is up and down. I am getting ready to be a grandmother for the second time, and I want to have 5 pounds gone by the time the baby is born at the end of the month. I just need to get up and get moving.

Not sure how I managed to get so far off track, but I gotta get my groove on again. I had a good start at the beginning of the year, and looking at my photos from Thanksgiving last year, and the pics I posted taaken this week, I can see the difference. I still have such a long way to go though.

I had such a good pace in the beginning, not stressing on how much I was losing or how fast, but focusing on making each meal count and staying within a reasonable calorie limit. As time passed, the weight was slowly coming off.

I stared small, looking at each meal/snack, one little success at a time. Then I added activity, a little more exercise, a little more regular. Before long I had established some good habits! Now my habits are so bad, I'm embarrassed to admit it.

So I am gearing up for change again, little by little if I have to. I have a family BBQ/reunion in 4 weeks' time. Going to set a mini goal of losing 5 lbs between now & then! Wish me luck!
