I took the ten day Fed Up sugar challenge
Thursday, May 22, 2014      1 comments

There is a new movie out called Fed Up that is being promoted by Katie Couric and which is about all the hidden sugar in our diets and the negative effect it is having on Americans' health. In my latest leap off the healthy eating wagon, I was ... Read more
Working on the Weight of Too Much Stuff
Sunday, January 19, 2014      1 comments

I have become thoroughly convinced that much of my mindless eating is related to negativity spawned by underlying issues. One of the biggest ones is the clutter that surrounds me in my home. I am not a neat freak, but I do like order. My husb... Read more
Living in the Present, Not the Past
Tuesday, January 14, 2014      4 comments

For a number of years, I was a runner and a fairly good one at the local level. Then my feet gave up on me and eventually I lost interest in trying to balance running and the pain from plantar fasciitis. The bad news is that plantar fasciitis ... Read more
Walking in the Rain
Saturday, January 11, 2014      4 comments

So much has happened since my last blog entry and most of it was not particularly positive. I made my confession about lying to myself and then did nothing about it. The weather had been very bad up to and through Christmas and I used it to av... Read more
Being Honest
Thursday, December 19, 2013      3 comments

I recently read an article about lying and why we do it. There was a major difference between the types of lies that men tell and those of women. In general, women lie to smooth things over or to make themselves or others feel better. For the... Read more
Weekly Update #9 - Only a Minor Update Today
Monday, August 05, 2013      2 comments

I usually do my weekly update on Mondays, but there will be no update today due to a crazy day yesterday. Yesterday was my husband's and my anniversary. We did not have big plans other than to go out to dinner in the evening. Otherwise, the d... Read more
Weekly Update #8 - Company and Cheating
Monday, July 29, 2013      4 comments

After being sick the previous week, I did not do my weekly weigh in and measurements last Monday. And since we had company on and off nearly the entire week, I was ready for a very unpleasant surprise when I did my weekly weigh in and measureme... Read more
Weekly Update #7 - Not a Good Week
Monday, July 22, 2013      5 comments

I did not do my weekly weigh in and measurements today. I had a rough week last week when I became sick late Thursday and continued to not feel well through Sunday. I tried to exercise on Friday and that was a bad mistake. Listening to your b... Read more
Weekly Update #6 - Sometimes the Scale Lies
Monday, July 15, 2013      3 comments

Seven weeks into my program and I am now convinced that the scale sometimes lies. In a way, that is a good thing. This is the second week in which I hit a plateau as far as my "friend" the scale says, but my clothing and measurements tell a mu... Read more
Weekly Update #5 - Feeling Positive
Monday, July 08, 2013      4 comments

I have been back on my program for six weeks now and after having reached a plateau last week, things are moving positively again. Having this one week plateau taught me to be patient and and not worry so much about the scale which is not alway... Read more
Weekly Update #4 - A Plateau But No Panic
Monday, July 01, 2013      5 comments

I have been back on my program for five weeks now and have reached a plateau. Ironically, this plateau is at the same weight that I have plateau'd at in the past, so I am trying to be patient. I am still having problems with sleep consiste... Read more
Weekly Update #3 - Slow and Steady with a Few Bumps in the Road
Monday, June 24, 2013      4 comments

I have been back on my program for four weeks now and am still making some progress with a few bumps in the road here and there. Of course, that is to be expected. For some reason, I did not sleep as well this week as I did the previous we... Read more
Weekly Update #2 - Making Progress
Monday, June 17, 2013      5 comments

The water drinking is really working out well this time. At first, I would wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. A friend of mine assured me that if I stayed with it, my body would get used to drinking all that water and I ... Read more
Weekly Update
Monday, June 10, 2013      2 comments

Although I had been back walking for a while now, I had not been consciously tracking my food and measurements. As I wrote earlier, I was shocked to see how much I had gained in my waist and hips since last year. Getting these two measurements... Read more
Measurements and Miscellanea
Friday, June 07, 2013      2 comments

Logging stuff in is good for accountability. I am glad I had logged in my measurements before because I knew my clothing was not fitting right and I did not need the scale to tell me that fact. What was shocking was to discover that I had adde... Read more
