I love the way I look in clothes. I weigh 159 today. I never thought I would see the 150's again in my life. I had weight loss surgery - RNY - in August of 2009. My goal was 170. Both my surgeon and my family doctor thought that was a good ... Read more

I have a few rules that will help with weightloss. If sharing this helps anyone that will be great. 1. Don't eat if you aren't hungry, stop when you are full. Sounds so simple that it is stupid, but I never knew when I was hungry and would ... Read more

I try to not worry. Today it is hard. My husband has a union job and the contract is being disputed. They are giving the company another week to improve the offer. We won't be able to keep our house if they strike. I really pray and I mean ... Read more
The best trivia I ever learned.
Saturday, September 25, 2010      4 comments

While playing trivia 2 days ago I learned that 4 grams of sugar equal a teaspoon. This really helps when I am checking the nutrition in the grocery store. Wow! That really brings it home when you do the conversion. I would never stick 5 teas... Read more

Today has been a beautiful, do nothing day. Hubby is home taking it easy and expects nothing to get done. That is exactly what is getting done. I have jewelry to make before Wednesday so I will be busy tomorrow, but today is a chill day. ... Read more

Does this mean I am still out of shape?
Wednesday, March 31, 2010      1 comments

I went for a walk an hour ago. I tried to keep my speed up. I am still breathing hard - not as hard as when I was walking. I just now stopped sweating. I guess I have a way to go before I could say I am in shape. On the plus side, I m... Read more

That's not exactly an affirmation. So much for my positive attitude. I hate to admit it but I am a flake. I have trouble concentrating and following through. I am not sure what is stopping me from achieving. I am smart and I am capable, but... Read more
Learning to Like Me
Saturday, March 13, 2010      3 comments

I like me. That hasn't always been true, but I like me now. Last night I watched "What Not to Wear". There was an adorable woman who had lost 90 pounds and referred to herself as "Chunk" before her makeover. How sad. She had accomplished so... Read more
