First half of Feb

Down to 221. I'm thrilled. But I'm behind on my exercise goals for the month so far. I swear I could throw a rock and hit the gym in my apartment complex, it's so close to me, but I've been only once. It was pretty dirty and I'm planning to ... Read more
January progress report
Saturday, January 31, 2009      3 comments

I lost 6 of the 8 lbs that I gained in December. Everywhere I turn lately, I'm reminded that this will never get easy. Once I'm successfully, blissfully at my goal weight, it will be just as hard to stay there as it was to get there. But ... Read more
I'm a DOER

So far, I've lost 5 of the 8 pounds I gained in December. Two full weeks left in January. Dare I try for another 5 lbs? The weather is putting a damper on my walking, which is no excuse because I can always go to the gym and walk on the tread... Read more
I'm being led back to myself
Thursday, January 01, 2009      9 comments

There is absolutely something positive in everything. And our lives, or maybe just my life, needs a major upheaval periodically. Because I no longer have a job, I guess my mind got a chance to exhale and started exercising suppressed brain... Read more
Lights, camera, ACTION!!! Yaaay 2009!
Wednesday, December 31, 2008      4 comments

I had a wonderful "Get Ready for 2009" day today. I like my car clean and money in my purse when the new year starts so I took care of that. My way of symbolizing the things I'd like to continue all year long. So I dressed up (kinda) and put on ... Read more
Good news and less than good news re 2008
Friday, December 12, 2008      7 comments

Why did I lose less than 20 lbs in 2008? With all that I've learned and all of the changes I've made, I FEEL that I should have lost a lot more. But the fact is that I tried to get maximum benefit from minimum effort by exercising sporadically... Read more
Job hunting
Tuesday, November 25, 2008      9 comments

Frustrating and tedious! But I have no magical powers that will allow me to snap my fingers and receive job offers. Although I'm moving to Las Vegas to be near my grand sons, I consider the move part of my 2008Lynn Coming Out Party. New me, n... Read more

I can take a hint
Thursday, November 06, 2008      7 comments

I broke down and bought a couple of outfits this past week. I don't work in the public and I was wearing gym shoes every day so that I could walk whenever I wanted, plus I work weekends when there are only five of us here. So I'd taken casual to... Read more
Ambitious or delirious
Friday, October 31, 2008      5 comments

I was thinking about setting my November goals. Then during the day I ate a few things that I wouldn't normally. Not just a couple of bites of something, but enough to make me declare today a not-so-good food day. That got me wondering… Could I... Read more
Not, not, not having the best day
Sunday, October 26, 2008      11 comments

And it started very early. Even before the terrible breakfast = pancakes with syrup and bacon, coffee with sugar. I just finished lunch, and have just about reached my calorie goal for the day. I'm going to wallow in my misery until I ge... Read more
I'm not discouraged but I am mad at myself
Monday, October 20, 2008      6 comments

I had a conversation with a friend who was asking me about my daily diet. So I was recounting the foods I no longer eat: fast food, foods with ingredients I can't spell, trans fats, saturated fats, white flour, rice, yada, yada, yada. Then sh... Read more
I'm still learning to run
Tuesday, October 14, 2008      9 comments

Although I haven't been consistent (as usual), my running form has improved and this morning I was able to run for 45 seconds and I didn't think I was going to die afterwards. I was out of breath but not gasping for air. That was the first run,... Read more
You never know who you help when you share

I may have found an answer to my current stumbling block. I want to lose 10 lbs this month. I need to intensify my exercise. I need to get out of breath and work up a sweat. Walking isn't gonna get it but that's what I find easiest to fit int... Read more
A good week
Sunday, September 28, 2008      7 comments

I had a successful week. I walked every day, including the day I declared a rest day and ate a takeout chicken wing dinner. It felt good to have a planned detour from the plan rather than to just be off course. I think I may do that again next w... Read more
