Hello all... Well, I read a blog today about scales and thought I'd share. This is difficult for me to write because of course it is about (the whole reason we're here..) the sensitive subject of WEIGHT GAIN! I have a scale that has al... Read more

Just a quick light hearted blog I thought I'd share. My house is infamous for clutter! I'm sure some of you can relate. It's a 3bedroom, 1 bathroom home with 3 people (1 being a tween) living in it and a 13 year old living in it too during the s... Read more

Well, I own it. I ate McDonalds on Thursday (see last blog). Well, more like it was given to me but I didn't use the self control I have learned (and thought I had mastered) here on SP. I gave in and had the stupid Angus 3rd burger (or whatever ... Read more

Hello all~~ Well, I have to have surgery on my right arm (my sparking arm..Ugh) for ulna neuropathy. There is apparently a tumor on my muscle that is causing inflammation that is pinching off the nerves and that is causing the loss of feeli... Read more

I have begun compiling a list of what I will never do again and no one, I have decided, is going to get in my way and stop me from doing what is on my list...Too many times I've done what others have asked and ended up sabatoging myself and my j... Read more
Morbidly obese?
Tuesday, September 04, 2012      16 comments

I've been weighing in on my house scale for the last month at 214lbs. Same--a plateau. I weighed in for the last time about a week ago. No change. Since then, I've felt a little bloated, maybe a little sluggish, but I chalked that up to not eati... Read more

Yep, I went to the beach. I didn't buy a bathing suit though like I was determined to do. I tried one on and thought I'll wait til I'm under 200lbs. I'm at 214 so hopefully by next summer I'll own one. I haven't been to the beach in about 3 year... Read more

Maybe my body is being normal. I've had so much more energy these past few days. I think the walking again has made a big difference. I had taken a few days off because of problems with my back and I was having neck spasms. The doctor thought m... Read more

Well, time for me to vent. This doesn't have much to do with weight loss really. So, if you're looking for a blog like that, I;m sorry. This one is more of a vent. A question looking for an answer. I'm hoping someone out there will read it an... Read more

Tuesday, July 17, 2012      7 comments

Well, I've been on SP since April and have managed to lose 14lbs. Yay for me! My prob is I lacked motivation to keep it off. I thought once it was gone--it was maintenance needed. I was SO wrong. I ended up gaining back 10. I have sin... Read more
