Always a work in progress...

So I managed to drag myself to the Y this morning, alone. It's so easy to put off working out when you don't have a workout partner, but H is going to be gone for at least three more weeks so I have to get used to forcing myself. The workout w... Read more
So what did I do? (positive!)
Thursday, April 02, 2009      0 comments

I spent a little time reading the positive, motivational blogs of my friends here at SparkPeople. Then I looked up a few things I could do at home, and did them. I kept my heart rate up for thirty minutes and sweated plenty! I still don't fee... Read more
Down Again

So I visited the doctor for my kids' well-care appointments today, to get their shots up-to-date essentially, and the doctor made a comment about we could all use more exercise, especially me. I was so upset that I didn't say a word, and now I ... Read more
How far is too far?

So today was co-op day again, and I arrived late so I missed out on most of the chairs. I found myself trying to discourage one of the guys from moving chairs because I wanted to test my strenght. I told him that I counted on being able to do ... Read more

And finally the scale moves in the right direction! I finally get to see the elusive 209. I hope in a couple of weeks to be firmly planted on the underside of 210. What a relief it will be to finally be under 200! But let's not get too much ... Read more
Just a little smug

I still haven't lost any weight, but I'm feeling a bit smug. I belong to a group that rents a space that is also used as a church. When we arrive, we have to stack the chairs and move them to the sides of the room so that we can use the space.... Read more

I'm sorry for the unrelentingly negative tone of my bog posts. I only seem to need to write when I'm in the dark place. I'm feeling a bit better now--still incredibly frustrated, beyond my ability to describe it, but I know I'm not going to qu... Read more
Yeah...still not losing weight.

Okay, so I'm done. I've lost one pound since November. I've got no idea what to do. Here are the things I've done to break this plateau: --Increased the resistance on the excercise bike from level 4 to level 6. --Picked excercise progr... Read more
Another week, another...nothing

Well, it's another week with no weight loss. I'm still working out and I was very good on Valentine's day--very, very good. I guess I've kind of decided that at the very least I can feel the muscles under all of the fat, so I can take a defian... Read more

So I feel terrible that I'm always complaining on here, but I need a place to vent so here I am. Please feel free to not read my blog. I took a really good look at my husband, who has NOT been dieting, has NOT been eating any differently... Read more
Latest Tests
Tuesday, December 09, 2008      1 comments

Well, I'm frustrated. I thought I had blogged the numbers from my last cholesterol tests, but I can't find it anywhere. I just got the results from the test I took yesterday--wow that was fast, wasn't it? And since I can't remember what the p... Read more
Am I Crazy?
Monday, October 13, 2008      2 comments

So on Friday I had a sudden drop and weighed 219 pounds, which is more than 50 pounds less than I was at my heaviest. Woohoo, I thought, I've lost 50 pounds! I told my husband he had to take me out for dinner. But it was kind of a let down, ... Read more

I've been ill, so I've missed my workouts this week. However, I did make my weekly goal, so that's good at least. I don't think I'm going to hit my "secret goal" of 200 by the new year unless a miracle happens. :( At a pound a week, I'm not ... Read more

Last week I was 225, today I'm 229. It's frightening that a month's worth of work can be gone in a few days. I'm not sure what's going on, except that I've been away from home so much lately. I've been working out, and I increased the resista... Read more
Wedding Ring
Friday, August 29, 2008      3 comments

A few months before I was diagnosed--maybe two or three months, I had finally reached the weight where my wedding ring didn't fit comfortably. I could get it on, but I couldn't always get it off, and I would experience a fit of terror if I coul... Read more
