License Exam Tomorrow
Sunday, May 22, 2011      7 comments

Ack! Tomorrow is a big-deal high-stakes license exam for me. I have to be on time or they won't let me in. I have to bring 2 forms of ID and 2 permission letters or they won't let me in. I have to put everything I own in a locker and let them sc... Read more
Back at it!

I have been stuck at/around 305 lbs since at least the last time I posted. Very frustrating! I think I've been making relatively good food choices, but have not been consistently tracking my meals or posting here like I did in the beginning. Hmm... Read more

My hip replacement surgery date just got moved up 10 days. Now I'm on the calendar for 6/14/11! Guess that means I'd better get back to logging my food & being an active Spark person--need to lose at least 10 more lbs by then. Ack! Diane... Read more

I don't know if anyone but me is paying attention, but I changed my start weight. I lost 5 lbs the week before starting SP and didn't include it originally. BUT, it has been driving me slightly batty to have to add 5 lbs to everything on here. S... Read more
Shopping Discoveries

Hubby and I went shopping yesterday. Probably overspent, but oh, well! Everything we bought was necessary and relatively healthy. He is 3 lbs away from his goal weight & needs to concentrate on getting more protein & fiber. I, as always, need to... Read more

Saw the hip doctor today. He kept us waiting until after 1 p.m. for an 11:30 a.m. appointment--must be nice to be good enough at what you do to get away with that (he does it routinely according tostaff). I'm glad hubby came with so I had someo... Read more
Can't Wait

I can hardly stand it--my next consult with the hip surgeon is Monday at 11:30 a.m.! Can't wait! Today I weighed just under 312 lbs (I was 310 Saturday) and I need to be at 315 or below to get surgery scheduled. I usually don't weigh so of... Read more
Getting Back on Track

Hubby is home, we're adapting to life with one car (complicated!), and it's time for me to get back on track. My re-check with the hip surgeon is in 1 1/2 week! Early on I was losing weight rapidly enough that I thought I just might be at ... Read more

Brought Hubby home Monday. His mood was a roller coaster until well after we went to bed. I slept, he didn't much. But he stayed home. This is good. Saw doctor yesterday, started new meds. Today we only cried twice--major improvement. ... Read more
Just another Manic Sunday

Hubby is safely in a secure hospital ward. I haven't been able to see the doctor yet, maybe tomorrow, but hubby says they are thinking about sending him home Mon. or Tues. on the condition he does intensive out-patient treatment. I would have ... Read more

Well, it turns out the 3 day fight with the spouse and daughter was really the beginning of a manic episode for him (complicated by some relatively minor teenage misbehavior). He was missing for most of the week, sold our only paid for car, and... Read more
Emotional eating
Wednesday, February 16, 2011      3 comments

Wow! A 3-day 3-way fight between me, husband and 17 year old daughter = 800 calories over my daily limit yesterday. It could have been worse... 1 binge, not 3. I ate home-made reduced fat biscuits and kielbasa. I wanted full fat bakery roll... Read more
Honeymoon over?
Sunday, February 13, 2011      4 comments

I know that with all things, your enthusiasm goes up & down in a cycle. New marriage, you get maybe a year or two of "honeymoon." At some point things settle into a routine, as they must, with occasional bursts of renewed passion to keep thing... Read more
