It's too weird...

I've spent the last 20+ years of my life eating high fibre foods. Not to mention avoiding, like the plaque, any white foods. Now, since a bout of Diverticulitis, I HAVE TO eat white stuff and not much fibre. Need to give my intestines a rest for... Read more

I'm very impatient today. I want to be at my goal weight NOW!!! Don't know why I'm in this mood today. I've been reading motivational blogs/pages and I'm very impressed by all the success people are having. I want to be there too. I know, ... Read more

I've been out of it for a few days. I got the flu the day after I got the flu shot! Go figure. It's great for weight loss but I wouldn't recommend it. I'm down 8.5 lbs since Jan. 1st. (over 17 lbs since last year). I'm ahead of my goal of 1... Read more

We've been having unusually warm weather here in the Cariboo, BC. It was about 10 Celsius above zero today. The sun was shining, it was just gorgeous. I took my 3 boys for a hike, that's my hubby Art and 2 dogs, Rusty and Pax. We went down... Read more
Revised Goal
Tuesday, January 18, 2011      0 comments

I've been reading a lot of great stuff on Spark People lately. One thing I picked out was to make reasonable goals. When you have so much (weight) to lose it can be overwhelming. So I've decided to take this journey 10% at a time. I'm focus... Read more

Turned 56 today and I'm panicking.
Sunday, January 09, 2011      4 comments

Every birthday since I was 13 I remember telling myself I was going to lose all the weight I needed this year. I'm now 56 and still singing the same old song. I hope this is the last birthday I have to repeat that desperate plea to myself. ... Read more

I picked up a couple of heavy water jugs and now I can hardly move without pain. So I haven't been able to stick with my C25K program this week. I'm ticked off but sticking with my eating plan. I need to get to my Chiropractor but he's 4 hours ... Read more

Sunday, January 02, 2011      0 comments

I'm starting, AGAIN, to get this weight off once and for all. I have to. I'm so sick of being fat, tired, lethargic and embarrassed. I know I'm shortening my life for every year I am obese. My New Year's Resolution is to read at least one s... Read more

Well, here goes. I'm going to try to write/keep a blog diary of my progress. Maybe this will help keep me motivated once and for all. Who knows. Maybe I can motivate someone else along the way. That would be very nice. It would mean I have ... Read more
With a little help from my friends
Thursday, March 11, 2010      0 comments

It certainly helps to have friends who support me in my endeavour to be slim once and for all. I'm motivated right now but I know there will be times when I waver. I'm liking the "Beck Diet Solution". It's giving me the tools I've been looking ... Read more
Staying at it!
Monday, August 17, 2009      0 comments

It takes time to record all your foods and exercises but I miss it when I don't. It's the only way for me to keep track. Trying to remember doesn't work. I'm finding it hard to get my fibre and calcium in each day. Mostly the calcium, so I'... Read more
Still at it

Got rid of 2 more pounds last week which is my goal (2lbs/wk) although the tape measure doesn't believe it. I know it will soon. I'm doing the GI Diet Menopause Clinic. It's a 13 week diet with fabulous meal plans, grocery lists and recipes. I... Read more
A milestone
Wednesday, April 01, 2009      1 comments

It might not seem like much, but I am down 3 pounds for last week. It's the first weight I have shed since August, that's a milestone for me. Going down the scale, even a little bit, is a good thing. I know that keeping track of everything is he... Read more
