Nope - wouldn't allow myself to go through it. I knew I hadn't exercised this past week. Excuses? maybe - rain and a sprained ankle - oh well. So here it is - Thursday morning and I was thinking: do I do it? do I get on the scale? How a... Read more
Hesitated, but got on the scale anyway
Thursday, April 07, 2011      2 comments

I just didn't want to do it, get on that scale. I am feeling so good about sticking with it, but knew I wasn't the best about it this past week. So I said to self: look the worst it can be is a pound up or so - you weren't that bad and beside... Read more

After reading another popular blog by pinkhope this morning, I gained enough confidence in my choices over the past 21 days (beginning of Lent) to stick to my Thursday morning weigh-ins. I was pleased to see that I was down again, another 1.5 l... Read more
stream of conscience

I don't know about anyone else, but being home all day with the kids in school and my husband off to the city - my brain becomes my best friend. Streams of thoughts all day! Mostly good thoughts - from how to make the world a better place, to ... Read more

So do you say Sunday or Monday is the start of the week? No matter - Sunday was a great day food, family and in general and for this Monday morning I am feeling the same way! Love, love, love it when the emotions are good and the healthy ... Read more
Testimonial to tracking
Saturday, March 19, 2011      1 comments

You simply have to give in and track. It has saved me quite a few times AND it has put joy on my face a few times with - "wow! I have a really good number of cals, etc left - and its Friday night!" Tracking was my saving grace last night.... Read more

What an emotional roller coaster I have been on! I am in the thick of life with teenagers, a house in need of attention, taxes looming, boy scouts, college searches and a husband that is overextended with exciting work deals, gardening and scou... Read more
Changing Things Up
Tuesday, March 01, 2011      2 comments

Now what does Changing Things Up mean? It means getting out of my rut, doing the things I used to like doing and still can do and pushing myself outside my comfort zone. Thus far I did a 4 hour winter hike with my husband on some serious... Read more

This Thursday is February 3rd. I made a little goal of being in the 150's by my 50th on Feb. 10th. Last weight-in was 164 and that will be 2 weeks ago come this Thursday. I'm feeling a little scared. I was too lax this weekend? A few ex... Read more

My new profile picture is my new motivational picture. I love my new dress, but for some reason when I saw this professional photo I gasped. When I look at it in a full page format, I look like a mushy-armed linebacker. Aren't we all hard on... Read more

Just had a great 2 days - started with a black tie ball on Tues night and ended with a wonderful dinner with wine and snow last night (Wed.). I knew I had the ball coming up, so I was very careful about my food intake, which let me "forget abou... Read more

Recommitting - and sticking with it for nearly 2 weeks now and I am down 4 pounds. While my most recent lightest weight was 161.5 in September 2010, I peaked at 168 on the morning I recommitted. I say peaked because, my 1st serious weight loss... Read more
