Surgery and starting again.
Friday, September 25, 2015      2 comments

One of the things that stops me in my tracks is my hernia. A ventral hernia that was fixed once before, and is there because of the c-section I had nearly 9 years ago. I know that it's an excuse that's easy to use, but the fact of the matter is,... Read more
It's nice...

Nice to see I can do this again and get results. And REALLY nice to see my husband wanting to do it with me for real this time. It's harder for him, I think, but he's really putting in an effort and wanting to lose weight with me. I'm goin... Read more

Months, right? It's not that I gave up, but as I do, my moods sometimes take me away from things. Thankfully, my weight didn't go completely out of control - I did gain some back, but I didn't go back to where I started, which is what I anticipa... Read more

So, after the holidays, filled with the food and the family and the candy and goodies and all that, I've only gained a little (which is a miracle) and I'm working hard at getting it off. I'm intensely busy with family and the friend that l... Read more
On the road again...

Death of a loved one. He was a member of spark people, and had a bad heart. I had not gained. I had not lost. Weight-wise, that is. This has inspired me to do more for myself, and work harder. I need to keep going. I hadn't given up, ... Read more
Slow going.

I've had a slow month. I admit it, I've been down but I've not gained. I've maintained, and now I'm losing again. I'm not unmotivated, but I was so busy that I put myself on the back burner. Something that I do a lot of. It was difficult to... Read more

I let my son take some photos - they're blurry so I can't really post them, and I look TERRIBLE... but the thing is, I look terrible because it's early morning and I'm just not ready for the day. I was really surprised at how different my ... Read more
I should write more often.

But! Just because I'm not writing doesn't mean I'm not here. :) I'm being very consistent. And very busy. My medication is working wonderfully and I'm doing things I should've done ages ago, and being more active, and losing more and more w... Read more

Elderly parents are difficult. I never thought of them like that until recent years, even though they've qualified as such for a while. They'll be visiting soon. It'll probably be the last time I see my father. This is painful. Extra... Read more

Not neglecting my diet or my plan! I'm just enjoying my life, which means I'm simply forgetting to put entries here. I figured out something a little profound recently, and I wanted to voice it, to possibly expand on later, once I had time... Read more
Changes are... good!

I had a lot of fun on the road trip... it was a good time, and that surprised me! A big change for me, considering I hadn't been out like that in a while. In other news... I should probably look into taking some sort of photo of myself to s... Read more
Doing well so far. :)

Things are doing well so far, after the rush of the doc visits, and all that... I'm going out on a pretty long road trip with my hubby this weekend. An adventure. A really new thing for me, I haven't been this far out of town for years. I'... Read more

118/76 ... what! WHAT! I'm just happy, that's all. :) All of this is paying off in more ways than one. ... Read more
Weight milestone.

I can't remember the last time I saw this number on the scale. It's not as low a others. I don't care right now. It's progress and it's GOOD. I'm so pleased with myself!... Read more
Update to the Miracle Soup - and other musings.
Monday, August 04, 2014      1 comments

Yes, I finally entered the soup recipe, and it's surprisingly low calorie. I had no idea! I could've had some too, and I might just make more today! It's pretty high in sodium though, so I might skip the salt in it and see how it tastes. R... Read more
