2013 So Far
Friday, August 02, 2013      0 comments

Having spent about 10 years needing/trying to normalize my weight, I feel that 2013 has been pivotal in many ways. At last I have put together a balanced, sustainable approach to eating and exercising. It is not the fastest, or the most strict. ... Read more
Struggling to Get Back Into WII Cardio
Friday, July 19, 2013      0 comments

Not sure why I am so resistent to cranking up the WII and putting in a SA or WII exercise. For sure I need to work on my core. Plus some weight workouts would be helpful. Maybe it just seems like such a chore, whereas I have made walking 6,500 s... Read more
Scale Withdrawal
Tuesday, July 16, 2013      0 comments

Odd how terribly difficult it is to withdraw from constant weigh-ins. This particular addiction just snuck up on me over the last several years. Since I weighed 135 pounds or so for most of my adult life, and being 5'7" tall, weighing was a... Read more
So Far In 2013
Saturday, July 13, 2013      1 comments

I have really changed my focus this year. Rather than weigh all the time, I have shifted to a plan of low carbs most days, setting daily goals for numbers of steps, and booking food daily in order to keep a finger on the pulse of my eating habit... Read more

Self-Perception and its Role
Thursday, January 08, 2009      1 comments

Wow, been a while since I've blogged. Took off time for holiday festivities and the resulting weight gain. The good news is, I never lost sight of my goal to continue on the path of achieving good health. Thought it would be timely to pursu... Read more
November's New Self-Challenge
Sunday, November 09, 2008      0 comments

I've done really well for weeks now. Made good food choices, practiced consistency, increased my exercise as the previously broken leg improves...but it has not shown up so much on the scale. Really slow weight loss. I'm sure my age has somethin... Read more
Self-challenge success
Friday, October 10, 2008      3 comments

On 9/28 I challenged myself to weigh 194 by 10/25. Oh happy days...I achieved that goal on 10/9. It was a modest goal to be sure. But the point of it was to set a defined short-term goal, make it achievable, commit it to writing, and then just d... Read more
Sticking to plan
Tuesday, September 30, 2008      1 comments

Okay, days one and two of the new self-challenge went very well. Today is day three and I expect another good day from myself. The current challenge is to go from 198.8 to 194 (OR BETTER!) by 10/25. I know I can do this. Mobility improves b... Read more
How many times can one start over?
Sunday, September 28, 2008      2 comments

That sounds like a depressing title but the only thing worse is to NOT try, try, try again. After getting to my top weight EVER (199.8) as a result of 5 months in a wheelchair, I am finally beginning to get a little bit of mobility back. I ... Read more
Yesterday was day 14
Tuesday, August 19, 2008      0 comments

so one week to go in the challenge. I have done well and am finally upping my exercise a bit. Still no big calorie burn happening as the pool walking is slow to say the least. Still, every step takes me closer to getting my strength back. ... Read more

Yesterday was day 9 and it was good. Food stats: 1390/214/35/75. Lots of movement with the walker and crutch. Probably didn't burn a lot of calories but more then normal for sure. Yeehaw!... Read more
Day 8 challenge #2
Wednesday, August 13, 2008      0 comments

Yesterday's day 8 was good. Low on food stats but I'm fine with that when it happens. Spending so much time in the wheelchair means I burn off very few calories. So a low intake is sufficient. Food stats: 986/147/27/52 No exercise yes... Read more
Day 7 challenge #2
Tuesday, August 12, 2008      0 comments

Ok, I've missed a few days on the blog. Bad on me! Yesterday was day 7 and good. I did have a couple of off days and let myself get sidetracked. Many reasons that I won't go into here. No matter, I got right back on track and still can eas... Read more
