I have heard that phrase before...a lot, around here: "It's not a sprint, it's a marathon." And it's so true. It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle change. It's not a temporary goal, it's permanent. This is slowly happening for me. I still love... Read more

This is old woman stuff, and will be somewhat embarrassing and TMI for some folks, just warning anyone who might be offended. OK, so. According to the hormone levels, I am officially in menopause. Like I didn't know from the hot flashes a... Read more

When my DH and I started this go round [yeah, not my first rodeo] in January, he invited me to go for a walk with him. I balked at first, since he has always walked faster than I do. He claimed he'd go slower...for me. I thought, "Well, why not?... Read more

Everyone claims to watch their salt, but I never really *got it* until I started tracking it. So, now I use a lot more seasonings and very little salt when I cook. I found this blog today, and thought I'd share: "Have you eaten your three T... Read more

I think I finally found my took about 3 months. It's awesome to be in this place. The place where I don't feel deprived. Where I enjoy healthy food and even when I have to eat out or I choose to have a splurge, it's really easy... Read more

I decided I just have to do more. I understand that SP has to cover themselves by giving me little warnings about burning too many calories...I respect that. However...I have been stuck for awhile, and I have watched the Biggest Loser for... Read more

I wish I knew what exactly it is that makes me WANT to work out on some days and absolutely NOT want to for lots of the days in between. If I had that...and could figure out a way to bottle the former and purge the latter...well, everyone knows ... Read more

OK, so...trying to increase my water has been a challenge. I drink NO soda anymore. I actually don't even like it now. I do drink iced tea once in awhile...or light lemonade. But daily, I actually do "flavored" water, because I can drink ... Read more

I have admitted it in past blog entries, I am a stress eater. Worse than that, I am a conscious stress eater. I know I'm doing it and even though I am getting better at maintaining a healthy way of eating through stressful times...well, when thi... Read more
