Feelings Accomplished!
Monday, January 25, 2016      1 comments

I restarted my journey here for like the third time on on January 4th. I had been sedentary for the last couple of year, and was feeling so tired, bloated, a little depressed, name it. So I started slowly with my exercise, do... Read more
Full Body Photo -- Wait for it!
Friday, January 15, 2016      0 comments

Once I have lost 50 pounds, I am going to post a full body photo of myself. I would never do that at my present weight. In fact, when I went for my annual physical a couple of weeks ago, I would not let the nurse or doctor tell me my weight. ... Read more
I'm Back!
Monday, January 04, 2016      0 comments

Out of control over the past year. But it started way before then. I'm 5 years older now than I was when I first started the program, with great success I must say. I can blame my setbacks on a lot of things. But in the end, life happens. An... Read more
Long Hard Journey
Monday, September 19, 2011      6 comments

Well, it is a long hard journey. I've had setbacks but I've never given up. I've gained some weight back, probably 20 pounds, but I'm still determined. I've not been eating the right foods, not enough discipline on portion control, etc. But ... Read more
A setback.....

I got off track for a number of months. But now I'm back on track! What matters is that I stay focused. Now that I am back exercising and managing my food better, I have seen positive results. The hard part is that I am repaving a road... Read more
Gettin Back on Track

Well, I'm moving in the right direction again. I'm getting my mind right (75% of the battle). I've worked out well this week (5 out of 7 days), and I've gotten back on the healthy eating track -- at least for the past week. I'll be al... Read more

I just want my Spark friends to know I'm still hanging in there. I've had some challenges over the past few months with family illnesses and the death of a very dear cousin. I'm front and center in handling the business affairs on this, so it ... Read more
Halfway There

As of weigh-in today, I've lost 50-1/2 pounds. I'm over halfway to my goal weight, and it feels great! There really are no words that can adequately express how I feel. I could only imagine when I started this journey back in April that I wou... Read more
A Plateau? or Not?
Tuesday, November 24, 2009      3 comments

Could it be? Maybe/maybe not. I have been under a great deal of pressure/stress these past few weeks, having to travel long distances to provide support for an ailing relative. So my eating has been sporadic, and I have not been able to... Read more

As of today, I'm in "onederland". It feels great. This is a place I've not been in many, many years. Thanks to everyone for their continuing support and encouragement. ... Read more
I'm in it to win it.

As I always say, life happens. I've been so busy lately with a lot of personal matters to take care of, that I just have not been able to be real active on the site. But I'm still following the plan, although not tracking intake like I w... Read more

Total loss for me so far is 42-1/2 pounds. That's getting close to half of my goal loss in just over 5 months. I'm not starving myself. I'm not depriving myself. I'm eating healthy foods that I enjoy. I can hardly believe it myself. This program... Read more

I'm slacking in my tracking. I don't like it, but my gosh, it seems I'm so busy and distracted lately with other things that I have not been able to track daily as I would like. I'll get back to it though. I feel like I'm letting others exer... Read more
Today is weigh-in day.
Thursday, August 06, 2009      18 comments

Yay for me! I lost another 5 pounds this past month. Before Sparkpeople, I would have never guessed I'd be happy with "just" a 5 pound loss in a month. But I'm eating healthy, I'm eating and not starving myself, and I am soooo pleased w... Read more

Thanks to all of those who sent along your good wishes on my sprained calf. I took it easy this weekend, and did not exercise. Today, it feels just about normal. It sure is nice to have such wonderful spark buddies. I appreciate all o... Read more
