I've been thinking recently about the fact that we don't typically want to lose weight just for the sake of losing weight, but because losing the weight means we get to DO something. So I've been thinking about what I want to do when I reac... Read more
Eating Changes
Monday, September 03, 2012      4 comments

I've been stressed for years because I think that I have to learn to eat a whole "new" way. Since I'm someone for whom trying new foods is almost a phobia, perhaps you can understand why. However, eating what I do now - just less of it - i... Read more
Second Prong

When I went to the doctor on Monday, we had 3 things that we looked at. The first is to fix my headaches and I'm pretty sure I already blogged about that. The second is a pain I've been having in my abdomen, apparently where the gallbladde... Read more

I've been putting it off, but I can't continue to do so any longer. I have got to go to the doctor about all the headaches I've been having. Today is the first day in a week that I haven't had one when I've gotten up. I am able to stay on tra... Read more
It's Working!
Thursday, August 16, 2012      4 comments

I realized a few days ago that I do better if I do my exercise in the morning rather than thinking I'll actually have the energy to do so after I get home in the evening. Actually, now that I think about it, my most successful times in being co... Read more
One Day at a Time
Monday, August 13, 2012      3 comments

I was curious about SparkCoach so I checked it out the last couple of days. As part of that, I got to thinking about what has gotten in my way the last several times I've "started" and "restarted". I talked with my DH about it - he's able to s... Read more
Phase One - the beginning
Saturday, June 30, 2012      4 comments

Okay, so I thought about not blogging about this. The only person I plan to tell is my sweet DH, but I'm sure I can share here on SP and get support not put down:-) I've had so many things around me lately (put there by God, I'm sure:-) to... Read more
Noticing it Now?

It amazes me. I can go for months and not notice the little things about my weight. But as soon as I get serious about making changes, all I notice are those little things......how big my arms are, my tummy fat, how hard it is to do things be... Read more

My Coke Help
Wednesday, June 06, 2012      1 comments

One of my biggest struggles is Coke. The real thing. Sugar, not fake sugar (I'm allergic to fake sugars - truly!). I've drunk it for years, and there's no telling how many of the excess pounds I'm carrying around are due to all the Coke I've ... Read more

Migraines - UGH!
Wednesday, April 25, 2012      1 comments

This is day 3 of having migraines - UGH! I had to come home from work today - I was just sure I was going to pass out. Most of the time, I can take my medication and within an hour or so I can make it (I may not feel great, but I can survive).... Read more

I was more active this evening than I have been in a long time, and it feels AWESOME! Okay, it started with yesterday, actually. My nephew is getting married in June and his wedding shower was yesterday. DH and I showed up about 1 1/2 hours e... Read more
What Do I Really Want?
Monday, April 23, 2012      2 comments

I've been going through a growth spurt lately. Not physically, but as a person - me. What do I really want in life? How does getting fit and healthy fit into that? I feel like my entire life is in turmoil, and I'm struggling with how to ... Read more
Uh, Oh!
Sunday, March 25, 2012      2 comments

Okay, so I know that since I now only see my sweet DH on Friday night, Saturday and Sunday it's harder for me to do the healthy things I want to do then, this weekend has been extra difficult:-) DH had an aunt who had her 90th birthday part... Read more
