I did so well on Spark People for a year and then as I have done in the past I let life get in the way of my health.

I now feel it is critical for me to lose. Suddenly I feel if I don't do something now my heath is in real jeopardy. When we are feeling fairly healthy and have gotten away with bad eating habits we let all those excuses get in the way of dealing with our weight.

All in all I know that I can do this if I choose to. I remember once hearing Dr Phil say you continue to do things the same way if you are getting something out of it. Let us all look deeply into whatever it is we are getting from overeating. Whether it be comfort food, control or the pleasure of eating foods we like. We can control this if we set our minds.

I am now facing bad labs. I am very close to Diabetic and my doctor will check again in 4 months. I think she is willing to work with me to get them down but I think she doesn't expect progress next time. But I know I will make great strides. This is serious. I do not want to be Diabetic.

I lost 3 today. That is 6 in the past two weeks. I can do this. It is only food!

I am back to tracking my food and taking care of me. Please join me!

    I know you must be frustrated wanting all the work to get done. I hope the weather holds off a bit so you can get everything done.

    Beautiful day today! Still have the windows open. Went for a walk this evening. Went out to lunch with hubby, my daughter, and my grandson. Wore a new dress that had glitter on it (I'd ordered it online so didn't know about the glitter until it arrived), so I've been vacuuming up glitter from all over the house! Actually have the same dress in 2 different colors, so now I'm washing them, hoping that it helps cut down on all the glitter everywhere!

    Grandson is getting better and his appetite is coming back.

    And thanks for the tickets. Would love to go to a Home Free concert! They were in my area the end of March, but I didn't get tickets in time and they were sold out. Not sure when they will be coming back. If they have an album in the works, they usually tour after it is released. They also have done a holiday tour, and hoping they do so again, even if they don't have another Christmas album!

    Grandson is sick with a fever and cough (I think it's sinus drainage, maybe a sinus infection or allergies, since both do run in the family), so we've just been taking it easy. Daughter is going to see if she can get him in to the doctor.
    We had snow for one day, but it mostly melted the next day (except for the snowman the neighbor boys made, what's left of it now). Was in the low 70s today and supposed to be the same tomorrow. Enjoyed having the windows open.
    Glad you didn't have to get up on the roof. I don't like to do that either. Main thing for me is getting from the ladder to the roof and off again. Being on the roof isn't as much of an issue for me.
