I will never give up!
Thursday, January 19, 2017      5 comments

I have to come here consistently. I am going to use it to be more accountable to myself and my goals. As I've stated so many times before – weight has been a lifelong struggle for me. But what am I struggling against? Why do I look at this as so... Read more

I hope everyone is doing well. I had a good weekend. I was nursing an abandoned kitten that I found a loving home for. So, I feel good about that. I ate whatever I wanted this weekend and I must admit, I did overdo, but that's all right. I am le... Read more

This is so much a journey for me. I am learning so much about myself and others in the process. One thing I can say, I am not a quitter. I am keeping my head above water. Here I am again – two years after my last entry. When I use these tools, ... Read more
At least I don't give up

So much has happened. I had surgery to remove excess skin from my abdomen. Long story short -- got infection so scar is horrible looking. Surgeon pretty much butchered me. Developed acute tendinitis from sleeping in a chair for three months. Dia... Read more

Over the last few months, I have been comfort eating and I have gained weight. But, here I am again. At least I get points for never giving up. I have made a solemn promise to myself to stick with this, this time -- even when the going gets toug... Read more

I stopped going to the gym for almost three months. I had lost so much weight that I went to see a surgeon about having a panniculectomy (skin removed and reshaped around lower abdomen). I was sent for all kinds of tests, including an EKG and th... Read more
Never-ending battle

I have not been very diligent in keeping myself motivated and there's really no excuse when I have access to the wonderful tools here. Losing weight, for me, is not only a physical process. In fact, that's the least of it, really. Losing weight ... Read more

What do you do to combat impatience? I am sure I fit into the 99.9 per cent of people who want to have lost all their weight by tomorrow. What do you do with that energy of wanting? I am learning to channel it into the things I know will get me ... Read more

It has been so long since I've been here. You know, I keep forgetting I have a page on SparkPeople. How silly is that? So much has happened to me in the recent past and all I can say is I'm back on track, shifted to first gear and now spending t... Read more
A brand new year!
Thursday, January 06, 2011      2 comments

Well, it's Jan.6 already -- a brand new year. Thank the stars for that. 2010 was not a year I will remember fondly, to say the least. I had many emotional upheavals, the hardest of which was losing my mom. It was unexpected and a true test of ho... Read more

I am walking like I've had a vasectomy :P My workout was great yesterday. I am so motivated right now, but I know there will come a time when I have to pull from inside to beat the insidious cravings and the blues. Being perimenopausal is no wa... Read more

Well, today's the big day. I start working out with Tina, my personal trainer and I start eating clean. I have about 110-120 pounds to lose yet and I am pumped for it. I am doing everything I can. I just created a 'Vision' board for my wall. It'... Read more
Haven't been here in a while
Thursday, December 02, 2010      2 comments

I have been taking myself for granted and putting other people (one in particular) first in my life. I realize this hasn't been healthy for me and I need to put myself first again so I can devote my time and energy to becoming the best I can be ... Read more
This is gunna be a long one
Tuesday, June 01, 2010      2 comments

So many things have happened to me in the last few months. I think I am feeling the lowest I have felt in a very long while. I lost my job. My last day was March 31. I, along with several others, was told it was because of corporate restructurin... Read more
