Losing again, finally
Monday, September 22, 2008      10 comments

I get to move my ticker again. I haven't done that two weeks in a row in six months. I hope I never lose my mind and go off into la la land like that ever again. I am amazed at how delusional a reasonably sound mind can be. My delusional fat... Read more
I Hope You Dance
Wednesday, September 17, 2008      6 comments

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance... I hope you dance. I'm determined to become a dancer. When I think about how long I've sat it out, I could kick myself. This song by Lee Ann Womack and a movie, The Family That Prey... Read more
A measly half a pound and I'm glad about it
Monday, September 15, 2008      4 comments

Although I've been walking more regularly, this past week I've not been eating the way I should. This week I plan to get both right. Last night I made three one pot meals and that will hopefully be lunch and dinner for the rest of the week. And ... Read more
So far, so good for September
Monday, September 08, 2008      7 comments

The first week of September was a success. I'm not even sure how much weight I lost, but I lost back to my ticker weight. I had refused to move my ticker up but have been up and down within about 4 lbs for a while. But my renewed focus has paid... Read more
The TV is like a drug

Because I've disconnected mine in preparation to move, I've come out of a stupor to realize that I had allowed it to anchor me to the couch when I should have been walking or working out. It's like a post hypnotic suggestion; it's in the house, ... Read more

Funny how a revelation hits you like a ton of bricks, but it turns out to be something obvious. I started last year and went from couch potato to a reasonable walking program, trying to get to 10k steps per day. Then I added some weight trai... Read more
4 months...16 weeks...120 days...and the possibilities
Monday, September 01, 2008      4 comments

One third of 2008 left to go. I've not completely lost my focus but the intensity has definitely waned. How could I be stuck in the same spot for so long? I've not been willing to suffer the discomfort of exceeding my comfort level. I'm willing ... Read more
Trackin, tracking, tracking
Monday, August 18, 2008      6 comments

Try as I might, there is apparently no way around it. Tracking my meals is absolutely essential. No matter how long I've been at this, if I don't track my meals, I over or under estimate portions sizes, delude myself into thinking a little more ... Read more
I need sunglasses

That's how bright things are for me right now! Everything I touch is turning to gold. I am so thankful! God thanked me today, for getting out of His way.... Read more
My progress continues
Sunday, August 03, 2008      3 comments

I'm continuing to progress. I've been walking every day and will be setting goals to increase my weekly average steps, aerobic steps and distance. I just got back from my second walk today and I'm going to take a nice bubble bath, have a n... Read more
Progress, finally
Tuesday, July 29, 2008      4 comments

Today, I finally walked before work. Then again at lunch time. Hooray for me, I'm getting my groove back. I think I actually feel my resolve getting stronger. My determination to reach my goal by the end of the year is returning. Although tha... Read more
My old nemesis, depression
Tuesday, July 22, 2008      6 comments

I think it's been yapping at my heels for a few weeks now. I regularly assess myself for symptoms, hoping to catch it early because it can sneak up on you. Some symptoms seem unrelated too. I learned from a commercial recently that some aches an... Read more
59 going on 60
Sunday, July 06, 2008      12 comments

I am not where I'd planned to be by this time. My progress is slow I guess because of all the things that caused me to be fat in the first place, they don't just go away suddenly. I don't exercise nearly as much as I should. Although I don't eat... Read more
All roads lead back to clutter
Sunday, June 29, 2008      6 comments

JIBBIE49's comment got me thinking about how I messed up yesterday. Besides feeling out of sorts about an incident where I had to let one of my grandsons know that I was not only the adult in our relationship but one with whom a certain level of... Read more
I ate too much
Sunday, June 29, 2008      4 comments

I haven't over eaten in a long time and it won't happen again for a long time. I made sort of a quesadilla and it was absolutely loaded with chicken and vegetables. What I did wrong was: 1.Making it too big in the first place 2. Not cutting it ... Read more
