But it was worth it! Monday was a holiday and Tuesday I took off from work. Today, back to work where the "official" scale is and, YES! A 4 pound weight loss! Yippee! ... Read more
Great week at the "Y"
Sunday, May 08, 2011      0 comments

The sixth week of an eight week challenge I joined at our local YMCA was to burn 4000 calories (at the Y.) Since I don't jog or run I didn't think I could do it. But I went everyday this week - most days once before work and then afterward and b... Read more
The Dreaded Last 10 Pounds
Wednesday, April 20, 2011      1 comments

That's where I am. I haven't lost much at all in the last few weeks and I'm wondering how long this will take. I still have until August 1 to meet my goal but would like to get there sooner. I guess the only way is to eat less and exercise more!... Read more

Is it good if your 4 year old grandson asks "Why do you have so much skin?" while pointing to my upper arms? LOL... Read more
Feeling human again.

Finally, after 3 weeks, I'm feeling healthy again. I don't know how you all who feel under the weather on a regular basis manage to eat healthy and be fit with a chronic condition. You get extra good wishes from me. I had a "cold" and was down a... Read more

Tuesday, February 22, 2011      1 comments

Would you be unhappy to lose 5 pounds in one week? Well, I guess I'm not really unhappy I'm just sure it won't hold up. I have been sick for a week. I've been eating but I'm not convinced this can be a real loss. I know I haven't been drinking c... Read more

I think I may have gained. These last two weeks have been my worst - though not terrible by any measure - but I may gain a little and it will be the first time in 6 months. I can think of several reasons such as not having enough fruits and ve... Read more
Day off work
Wednesday, February 02, 2011      1 comments

I was anticipating an icy day today so was mentally ready for a day off work. Well, I could have made it to work with no problem but took the day off anyway. So far I've done a 4 mile Leslie Sansone walk (after 3 miles it's easy), done my streng... Read more

Finally posted a before picture. It was taken Mothers' Day, 2010. My daughter and her two daughters are also in the picture. She has just gotten serious about healthier eating so when I post next Mothers' Day picture I hope you will see a diffe... Read more

On Monday I will be one week away from six months of weight loss. Today I am 3.5 pounds from my intermediate goal (38 pounds total, 26 since joining Sparkpeople). Over the next week I've decided to go back over all the Strategies and Action Step... Read more

I am having trouble getting enough vegetables in my diet now that winter is here. Salads that tasted good in summer and fall aren't as appealing now and because I have not been as prepared for eating healthy as I should be I don't always have th... Read more
