June 6: My oldest dog passed away, my remaining dog is lonely and overweight. What does that tell me? That I need to walk her daily. We both benefit. Hubby and I took her for a short stroll today and good thing it was short - we were all out ... Read more
Remember the 'no potatoes' thing?

I should have stuck with that. I have eaten too many sugary starches and am bloated. I totally hate that. I guess it just wasn't meant to be - me and potatoes!... Read more
I am now a soccer mom
Tuesday, August 19, 2008      3 comments

My oldest son starts soccer this week, hopefully - he's got a cold (along with his brother and now me, I think). We've got all his gear ready and he gets his uniform soon. Anyway, I never thought I'd be stuck in that category of 'soccer mom' b... Read more
Let's add more to my already-busy life!
Friday, July 11, 2008      2 comments

I work full time and have kids and dogs and a hubby at home, yet I just started selling AVON. I used to do that years ago but stopped when my hubby got sick. So I'm doing that again and it's keeping me on my toes!... Read more
No potatoes!
Thursday, June 12, 2008      2 comments

I now fully understand why potatoes aren't allowed on South Beach. While I have met my goal weight and all that, I decided to try a potato. Holy cow - never again! I got so bloated and gassy, I thought I'd shoot myself to the moon! Enough of... Read more

Yes, the beach. It won't be warm, but that's where I'm headed in a few weeks. Should be fun with the family and the doggies. Bringing the rain gear. That rain gear hasn't been worn in ages so I hope it fits ok. I gained weight after buying ... Read more

The other day at work, a co-worker and I were discussing fashion and how a lot of the fabrics of clothes have tacky prints like large circles and huge florals - stuff straight out of the 60s. She went on to say that she's seen a lot of stripes ... Read more
Trying to get hubby to lose
Tuesday, April 29, 2008      4 comments

Since I was so successful with SB, I'm trying to get my hubby back on track. He tried it for a bit but gave up. I think he wishes he was thin again but just doesn't want to try. He's very stressed out with school right now and I think if he w... Read more
Playing outside with the kids is SO MUCH FUN!
Monday, April 21, 2008      4 comments

Last year at this time, I was overweight and self-concious and yucky. This time, I am in shape and able to run and not get tired. I took the kids to the school yesterday afternoon in 41-degree weather (cloudy, snowy) and pitched balls to my 11... Read more

LOL That's what my father-in-law says to me now, every time he sees me. LOL!!! My mother-in-law actually thought I was losing more weight. Nope, I'm not trying to, but my jeans are feeling loose in the waist. Time to wash them in warm water... Read more
I will NOT give in to the evil doughnuts!
Monday, March 31, 2008      3 comments

Those blasted doughnuts are in the kitchen at work and thankfully I am not hungry. I ate my cereal earlier and was happy with it (and am not hungry now because of it) and back a year ago, I would have given in anyway and eaten at least one doug... Read more

No, it's not windy here. Not right now. That's not what I meant anyway. ha! What I meant was, my husband tells me that I'm going to "blow away in the wind" since I'm much thinner now. I tell him, "That's ok" because I certainly don't want t... Read more
