5% Spring Challenge - End Week 1
Saturday, March 24, 2012      3 comments

Well, the good news is that I am down 2.8 pounds this week! I'm not sure how - I suspect it's because I've been sick all week with a nasty, nasty bug. I haven't exercised like I've wanted - I haven't eaten like I planned - but I suppose that l... Read more
5% Spring Challenge
Friday, March 16, 2012      3 comments

Assignment #3 - Why do I want to lose weight? There are so many reasons why I want to lose weight. I suppose the bottom line is that I want to feel good about me. Right now, I feel like crap - perhaps because I've been eating crap? I won... Read more
I'm Ready
Wednesday, March 14, 2012      1 comments

I'm finally ready to get back on track and live the life I want to live. It's almost funny writing it that way. I've been eating what I feel like eating, what I want to eat, which makes it seem like I'm living the life I want to live. But I'v... Read more
Angry
Sunday, January 15, 2012      6 comments

I've been so overwhelmingly angry with myself that I can't even think about logging into SP or doing anything about my weight, so up, up, up it keeps going. I'm so angry because of the progress I've lost. Okay, it's not so much the last ye... Read more
Low Iron
Sunday, August 28, 2011      3 comments

When I was in the hospital, they took my blood daily. One of the nurses told me that if my iron level was one point lower, they would have given me a transfusion. I'm glad I didn't need the blood, but it's taken me a while to get back on m... Read more
Funeral and Dreams
Thursday, August 25, 2011      1 comments

I know this is a weird title, but I have two things on my mind today:-) First, I went to a funeral yesterday. Not just any funeral - the funeral of my first cousin, who was 49, just a year older than I am. Even though he's battled cancer ... Read more
Baby Steps
Tuesday, August 23, 2011      3 comments

I wanted to name this "Baby Steps...Again" but that implies criticism, and I'm determined not to be critical (woo hoo, me!). I can't change the past, but I can make healthier choices TODAY! I logged my food yesterday, even though I didn't ... Read more
Recovery from Hip Replacement Surgery
Monday, August 22, 2011      8 comments

Yep, I did it - I had total hip replacement surgery about 3 weeks ago. The cortisone shot was great - for 27 days. Then the pain was back even worse than before. We took advantage of a window of time and scheduled the surgery. He did it ... Read more
Today's Thoughts
Monday, June 06, 2011      1 comments

Have I really been absent from SP for 6 weeks? Unbelievable! Almost as unbelievable as being "off the program" for close to 6 months - since the beginning of the year. Part of me wants to really come down hard on myself. After all, that'... Read more
So Not Strong
Tuesday, April 19, 2011      6 comments

My positive affirmation is that I am strong, but the current reality is that I am so far from that. And this year has certainly proved it. I'm almost in tears as I type. And it's all my own fault. As I've gone back to work, I've fallen... Read more
Still Here...And New Challenges
Tuesday, March 01, 2011      6 comments

It's been at least a month since I've logged into SP. Do I like it? No. Did I plan it? No. But sometimes life comes at you with a lot of stuff at once :) I was stressed looking for a job, got one, then stressed myself being new. (Have... Read more
Snow and Teddy Bear of the Week
Tuesday, January 11, 2011      8 comments

We had a TON of snow yesterday! Okay, so maybe 6 inches isn't a lot for those of you up North, but it's more than we've had in about 15 years! My sweetie went outside and took some pictures - here's a few of them:-) ... Read more
Struggling w Hormones (TMI, Gentlemen!)
Friday, January 07, 2011      5 comments

GRrrrrrr, getting older and associated hormone level swings is really getting to me! And I thought regular PMS was bad! I'm so frustrated! The past couple of weeks has been....bad. All I want to do is eat and not exercise. Okay, so I ha... Read more
A Day in the Smokies
Tuesday, January 04, 2011      7 comments

We were off yesterday, 1/3, for the New Year's holiday, so DH and I spent the afternoon in the Great Smoky Mountains. It was a bit chilly but so gorgeous! First we went on a short flat hike to Cataract Falls. We had done this earlier in t... Read more
2.5 Miles!
Thursday, December 23, 2010      8 comments

DH and I are off together today, so we decided to walk at the mall. Yeah, I know - it's 2 days before Christmas:-) But our mall isn't normally all that crowded, so we thought we'd give it a try. We weren't super early, but we hoped we'd beat ... Read more
