Today I did it.
Tuesday, November 11, 2014      2 comments

I worked out; I took care of my studies; I took care of some chores. I am pleased that today I can say that I met my goals. So much of the time I beat myself up for not doing what I know I need to do - but all that does is make me feel worse ab... Read more
The cloud has lifted...
Monday, November 10, 2014      0 comments

Thank you so much for the encouragement when the cloud was heavy and dark over me. I'm feeling better ... the goal seems possible again. Music helps me sometimes. Jason Mraz has a song called "I Won't Give Up" which talks about the challen... Read more
I'm so sorry

Today shame weighs on me with the heaviest of weights. I don't want to live with it. I've let so many people down most of all myself. I hate who I am. I don't want to live anymore.... Read more
I will be a success story!

Reviewing my history here, I see that I am always in struggle mode. So many people here are. Changing habits that, for me at least, are decades old is tough. Being disciplined enough to sit down and track is tough. I have a couple of major goals... Read more
Wow... thank you so much!!!!

Thank you, everyone, for your wonderful comments! I'm happy that you took the time to reach out... it's one of the things I love about SparkPeople. And I'm really sorry for the pity party. I've just been feeling overwhelmed and unsuccessful. I'm... Read more
Restarting, refocusing... but I need a lot of help

I don't expect anyone to read this, but I felt the need to write. I'm stuck... and I need someone who will nag me and motivate me and help me set up a realistic way to get what I want. I've been looking into life coaches, but that's one of those... Read more
Finding my roots
Thursday, May 26, 2011      2 comments

I haven't been around here for a while... still dealing with the winter blues despite the fact that it's 85 degrees today. I went to Texas this past week and met what's left of my mother's family. I had not met them before (my aunt said sh... Read more
Time to wake up
Tuesday, March 29, 2011      1 comments

I know I've said it before... it's been a long, hard winter. But it's time to wake up. It's time to get outdoors and get myself together. I'm looking forward to the warmer weather and fresh fruits and vegetables. As much as I appreciate our glob... Read more
Returning from the long winter
Saturday, March 26, 2011      0 comments

I've been away from SparkPeople for a little while. I've been sad, dealing with a bad bout of depression. It's been a very long winter. But I miss my teams. I miss the people who put so much of themselves into this program and reach out to those... Read more
Another foot of snow...sigh
Thursday, January 27, 2011      3 comments

At the moment, we have bright sunshine and it's one degree ABOVE freezing. We've had over 3 feet of snow this winter so far. I know that for some places it's not that much. For it is for here. We've run out of places to put it. My school is clos... Read more
Wow.. have I been out of it or what?!?
Tuesday, January 25, 2011      3 comments

It's snowing - again. We have a lot of snow. More is coming, they say, on Thursday. It's been at least 6 weeks since we've seen the thermometer go above freezing. Yesterday morning I thought we needed to switch over to the Celsius scale as the F... Read more
Ponderings on challenges...
Tuesday, January 11, 2011      0 comments

Well, last week was a bit better, food/exercise-wise. I'm eating more veggies and fruits (the clementines have been WONDERFUL this year!) and I did more moving around. I'm in a challenge with the Aspire and Inspire Team. I'm really enjoyin... Read more
Help! I've lost control of my eating!
Saturday, November 13, 2010      4 comments

I feel so out of control. I'm not doing anything I should and the consequences are horrible. I keep hearing the "shoulds" in my head and it feels overwhelming. I'm sleepy from the pain meds, and feel isolated. I've been craving chocolate and swe... Read more
Damn! Injured again!!
Wednesday, November 10, 2010      1 comments

I am so fed up with the right side of my body, I could scream! (Oh, wait... I did scream...) First the knees, then (and still) the bone spurs in my feet hinder my walking. Now it seems that the last time I went to the gym I did something to my s... Read more
Starting anew...
Tuesday, October 19, 2010      1 comments

I've been in a lull. The past two months I have cut back on my exercise and my commitment. It's time to renew, to start again. The good news is that I was able to maintain my weight during this time (a MAJOR fear of mine is to gain it all back a... Read more
