I’m not really sure what happened but suddenly two or more days passed without logging in or tracking food. My weight had been kind of stuck between 180 and 185 for a number of days…more days than I felt comfortable with…and in fact, I had gai... Read more

If you thought the news in my last blog was too good to be true---you're right. It was. The day after I wrote it, the scale showed me 169. Ummmmm. No one. NO ONE is that lucky. So I changed the batteries in my scale...and weighed myself. 1... Read more
Another One?

Yeah, two posts in two days. I will try to keep this one on the short side. I just want to give, what they call in church, a "Praise Report"...When I weighed myself yesterday I found that I had lost two pounds. Today I was scared to look...... Read more
Yesterday's "First"

As many of you know, who read my blogs, I am disabled by several forms of autoimmune diseases with the primary problem being severe arthritis. My fingers are twisted, my spine is a wreck, my ankles-unbearably painful. There are more problems li... Read more

Scrambling
Sunday, September 20, 2020      1 comments

Scrambling--up a steep rock wall. Turning tail and running away from a threat. Both of these are accurate words for where I'm "at" today. I was doing so well at weight loss...had gone down to 178 lbs. And then I came to dad's hous... Read more

Yes I have been gone from Spark People for some weeks. Not due to discouragement or failure but due to health. I was in a hospital bounced between two units like a ping pong ball as the staff tried to keep my two areas of need met and balanced... Read more
