It's been quite a few weeks since I started my Dukan journey. I made it through the attack phase -- only had to do 4 days. I am now in the cruise phase - just eating protein and veggies. Of course, I have modified to fit my lifestyle. There ... Read more

I know I probably shouldn't but I am successful on low carb diets. My neighbor told me about the Dukan diet, which I have looked at in the past but didn't think it was doable After she explained it to me, I researched on line and of course on ... Read more

I bought new bigger clothes recently since I got rid of all the clothes I thought I would never fit into again. Once again the big clothes are getting loose and the next (smaller) size is in sight. It is what keeps me going -- my clothes that ... Read more
Still not on the exercise bandwagon
Saturday, February 23, 2013      2 comments

I really really used to love to exercise -- go to classes at gym, use weight machines. Now I still have my gym membership but can't get that motivation to happen. Right now I should pick myself up off the couch and at least get moving for a wa... Read more
What me stressed?

I recently joined the sleep challenge. I now get into bed before I fall asleep on the couch and stumble into bed - even if it is just 9:00. But what can I do about my broken sleep when my son with Crone's disease wakes me up because he is so s... Read more
I'm thinking

I really wasn't going to do this because my goal is to get to a certain magic number. But now I am thinking why?. What is so special about that number. It really isn't the number I am seeking. It is the way I look and feel. I want to be abl... Read more
Today's a New Day

Started the day off well. Didn't have time to make usual breakfast so I grabbed a protein bar instead. Ran an errand with my son's fiancée. Planned on going to the mall and then it happened. The phone call from my son that he wasn't feeling ... Read more

Just read an article about procrastination and recognized myself right away. I am usually overwhelmed by what I need to do that I eat instead. Today I am going to pick one task I need to do and complete it -- not start and give up. Already I a... Read more

I did it -- gained back what I lost (minus 7 pounds). Oh well, I can do it again. Started tracking my food and water. I know I have to do something now because I pulled out all the clothes I already classified as too big. Need to get to th... Read more
Where have I been ?

I know -- you can find me on the games message boards. My fingers are now in fine shape. My brain is a little bit stronger (maybe). And by backside is probably a little broader. I think I can better use my time exercising other parts of my b... Read more

As my goal weight date approaches, I realize I will not be where I want to be when I said -- or will I? True the "number" is not there but .... I feel great! I like the changes that I have made and I like the way I look. Some of the changes (... Read more
It's Good to Look Back

Ok -- I have not been tracking, I have been eating some very questionable foods and I have not had the courage to get on the scale. So, I said to my self -- get on that scale and lets get back to business. I only had 7 pounds to go to reach my... Read more

It's been a week trying to get my house back into some kind of livable order because of the burst water heater. The refrigerator is back where it should be and making ice again. The washer and dryer have been hooked up and I have loads and loa... Read more

What a week it has been. I just came back from an 8 day cruise. Talk about food!!! Ok, so I didn't exactly follow a healthy eating life style but I know I could have been a lot worse. For breakfast I managed to stay away from the pastries an... Read more

I thought I had it together yesterday but obviously not. Thats OK because today is a new day and a start of a new week. The raisinets are gone and I am going to throw away the pretzels -- they are stale anyway (not that it stopped me from eati... Read more
