This Saturday only morning to sleep in, I woke up at 6:00 a.m...couldn't get back to sleep. Got up and moving but still felt so drained and tired. My head busy with the noise of all the "stuff" I have to do today, I noticed a small,... Read more

A week and a half of an excellent program for me. But then about two days ago I noticed some thoughts that didn't line up with my goals. Then I noticed myself "sneaking" a bite here, a bite there, of sugary foods and not counting it. Then yester... Read more

Some reflection of my choices today: I could tell you that I ate about 4 bites of popcorn at a school function this evening. I could also focus on the fact that I ate a serving and a half of tortilla chips, or that I was short in my water ... Read more

It is now 2013. Two years since my last blog. 10 pounds heavier. I've tried here and there along the way to be healthy, but not committed to a new changed life. Today I set some new, realistic goals. I am re-committing to this program, to health... Read more

I fell off the "wagon" and gained three of the ten pounds I had previously lost. "Food" for thought: at least I regained my momentum before gaining all the weight back! Whew, that was a close fall. It's similar to slipping off a cliff, grasping ... Read more

I have a pizza hangover. I'm not proud of it. I went over my calories yesterday, and for some reason I am feeling guilt. But the Word says, "There is no condmnation in Christ Jesus..." and yes, I do lean and rely on Him for my strength. Ye... Read more

My clothes are becoming roomier. I can feel my body slowly shrinking; yes, slowly, but I can FEEL the difference. I can see it too! After only ten pounds. I don't even care if no one else notices, because there is a knowing inside of me that dri... Read more
