Change of mindset...
Saturday, February 27, 2016      5 comments

So this year just like so many others I said it's time to lose this weight. I turn 50 in one short month and back in December I was saying I need to lose 50 by the age of 50. Foolish thinking for sure. The start of 2016 proved to be a challenge ... Read more
day two
Thursday, January 02, 2014      2 comments

Sooooo.. day two... seriously I can't wait to say day 200... or even better 2000. Day two just sounds so insignificant. Like seriously who really cares that you made it through one day and have started the next. Well in all honesty, I guess I ... Read more

Resolutions....everyone has them.. we resolve to .........(fill in the blank) Every New Years Eve we relish in all that the new year can bring to us. We dream and plan and think about all that is possible. Then that one word as positive as it s... Read more

A week ago I was feeling awesome. My mood was upbeat, my energy was high, and even though the plummeting scale seemed to have hit a plateau I was feeling good about it. Then my daughters graduation party day was finally here. I didn't eat poo... Read more

Tomorrow I am throwing my last graduation party. It will be officially known that all my children have moved on into the next phase of their lives. High School drama will be a thing of the past and now the world of college and young adulthood l... Read more
To weigh or not to weigh..
Thursday, June 27, 2013      1 comments

That is my question. I have read both sides of the coin when it comes to daily weigh ins. I've been stepping on that scale every day for as long as I can remember. It's almost ritualistic. I tell myself that if I do this I can regulate what I'... Read more

Well just as I knew it would... I hit that "speedbump" hard and bounced back up the scale 1.5lbs. Go figure. Even though I know it was coming, just not sure when, it still was like a kick in the pants.I have now gotten over that and think to my... Read more
roadblock looming
Sunday, June 23, 2013      3 comments

it is inevitable that this rapid weight loss that I am experiencing will slow down to a crawl and maybe even retreat backwards very very soon. I know that when I go from "watching" what I am eating but still allowing myself to have basically an... Read more
Life is a highway.....
Saturday, June 22, 2013      0 comments

okay... so that first 10 lbs. came off pretty easy... as it usually does when you radically change your habits. What makes me ponder though is how in three days I can dump all that. I know the proverbial water weight is the first to go. I ha... Read more
Lock opened....please enter

So yesterday the combination lined up and "clicked." The door opened and I chose path number 1 (shouldn't we all believe ourselves to be #1) and was able to stick to my eating plan (the one my mind has always known works best for me). I held fa... Read more
something has to click
Wednesday, June 19, 2013      2 comments

It has come to my attention after all these years of being on the diet yo-yo team that in order for the process to work (for more than a week or so) something has to click in my head, my heart, and my body. It's sort of like a combination lock.... Read more

Once again I find myself "starting over." You would think that by now the GOOD habit I form of working out and watching what I eat for a month at a time would stick. Instead it seems to be destroyed almost instantiously when something in life ... Read more
time to hook it up....
Wednesday, January 16, 2013      0 comments

for the first time in a long time it's time to hook up the dvd player to the tv and pop in the new walking working out that I bought. I'm going to push the furniture out of the way, get on my shorts and put on a t-shirt, slide into my sneakers ... Read more
closet eater????
Tuesday, January 15, 2013      0 comments

I've decided to start writing what I like to refer to as quiet ramblings. They are just thoughts that sort of pour from my head, sometimes with no real rhyme or reason behind them. I sit here now and think about my life and how food has always ... Read more
it's time to RESUME....
Monday, January 14, 2013      1 comments

yep.. just like so many times before here I am starting over..... or am I? Is it really a start over or a resuming after a mild setback. When you say starting over it's like you are telling yourself that you've failed and you're back to square ... Read more
