Tuesday, September 18, 2012      2 comments

Today is a red letter day for me. I am half way to my final goal. I promised myself when I got to this point I would buy some clothes once I got here and thank God! My pants are falling off my heinie and I need nearly new everything! What a t... Read more
Trying to swim more often than sink
Wednesday, January 25, 2012      0 comments

So I made it through the holiday season mostly keeping my head just below the surface. Not exactly sinking but definitely not swimming. Mostly doing a lousy job of treading water. I gained weight, lost it within a week, had another bad bout, ... Read more

Boy, this was a rough 4 day weekend, fraught with conundrums, crisis, and carnage. Yep, I'm talking about my eating plan. I didn't eat healthy but I kept my caloric intake well within my boundaries on Thanksgiving, then it all went downhill de... Read more
Feelin' frustrated

So I've been doing pretty good lately with my daily menus and sticking to them. I even did well when I ate out the whole day when I was visiting my daughter. I haven't been good about being active during the week, but I'm trying to get back t... Read more

I don't know about you but I've been overweight since I was nine (that was back in 1969), I've yo-yo'ed up and down (more up than down) ever since. Its been so long since I was even close to what I should weigh, I can't even remember it. So vi... Read more

So today I walked an old route that I haven't been on since nearly a year ago. It's just .06 shy of 2 miles. It's got a lot of hills and the last part of the walk is up hill, OUCH. I haven't walked since last Saturday but I've been doing Zum... Read more
This is gonna take some practice
Saturday, September 10, 2011      0 comments

So I quit walking at work, originally because I didn't like getting so sweaty while at work and now because they won't let us combine our breaks together to make a half an hour. So I've decided to exercise at home. Problem is the only time I w... Read more
Whiney time

I just got back from my weekend morning walk and plug in my mileage. But it isn't a accurate description of my walk. Yes, I did only walk the distance I put in but almost half was at a significant incline and of that amount there was "Death Hi... Read more

So I'm walking nearly daily now and uped the distance. I now walk around the perimeter of my workplace on my break. First week one lap, second two and this is the third week so I'm doing three. Once upon a time I did a mileage tracker tool to... Read more

So my best friend came into town yesterday, it was her birthday and I wanted to make it special for her. Plenty of snacks, steak and chicken with baked potatoes and plenty of veggies. Even an ice cream cake to celebrate (it's been hot lately).... Read more

So I broke 250, barely, nonetheless, 249.8 DOES count. At least in my book it does. Hey gotta take your victories where you can! Anyway, I just got to thinking, what goals do I want to make for myself for short and long term, besides my... Read more
This is scary
Friday, August 19, 2011      4 comments

This past week things have really clicked. I'm getting my portions right, hitting my percentages for carbs, protein, and fat, I even need to have a snack at night to get enough calories for the day. Okay this is kinda getting scary. I've neve... Read more
Cautiously Optomistic
Tuesday, August 16, 2011      0 comments

Things have been going really well with my meal plan. I'm not over eating, actually trying not to under eat, measuring portions, and keeping an eye on my fats. I'm even branching out and trying new recipes and not feeling guilty about cooking ... Read more

Okay, so I am finally starting my "get up and move my butt" portion of weight loss. I'm back to walking again. But this time instead of hitting the road with the intention of tearing it up, I walked a a speed that is slightly over a geriatric ... Read more
How come
Thursday, August 11, 2011      2 comments

How come some days, I'm so hungry that I could chew my toenails off? And yet other days I have to work to reach the minimum of my calorie base? I'm not exercising so it can't be that. I just wish it could always be a struggle to get enough, i... Read more
