Been a while since my last post. A LOOONG while. I've missed SP, and I'm glad to be back. My sugar rant; so I managed to lose just 5lbs since January - actually closer to 9, but I gained back about half of that :-(. That's not bugging me as mu... Read more
Wheee! Getting a wild ride on the weight roller coaster this week
Saturday, January 14, 2012      0 comments

So. 4lb gain turned to 5.5lbs gain, then back down by 4.5lbs. Bottom line, I'm 1lb higher than my last weigh-in. I've decided that unless/until I get more information, I'll record the facts, maybe my feelings about it, but not take any drastic a... Read more

I just changed my page background to a really fun graphic I cribbed from a friend. The text, 'Ijo ope mi ree!', is from the Yoruba language and loosely translates as, Here's my Thank You dance, and is commonly used in praise and worship of God.... Read more

I admit it, I'm terrible at blogging regularly. I never seem to have anything interesting to say, or enough time to say it. But one of my goals this year is to pick up a writing habit. I already love reading, so I thought writing would come... Read more

Sometimes 'good enough' is - good enough

Some years ago I heard someone say something like, "The great is the enemy of the good". I didn't quite understand it then, and even if I had I probably wouldn't have agreed. Since starting this weight-loss journey though, I have to say I'v... Read more
Just being thankful

3 weeks of consistent working out and not-too-bad eating and my weight hasn't budged at all. But my waist continues to shrink, more than 1/2" last I checked. Thank God for progress in any way it comes. Not every day is a great day in hindsight. ... Read more
What a great body I have! :-)

This body of mine, though still a bit ungainly at 261lbs (hopefully less this weekend!) is all here, and in (mostly) working order. I'm so thankful and grateful for that. Everyday as this journey progresses, I discover so many wonderfu... Read more

"For a dream comes with much business and painful effort..." 3.5lbs down this week. No, it's not easy. But it's so worth it. I have to accept that life can and will throw curveballs my way. No point worrying about it, or crying over i... Read more
A month and a lifetime ago...

May was a rough month, as evidenced by my silence the past few weeks. And my weight loss faltered for the first time since the surgery in January. First I was ill (suspected kidney failure, turned out to be nothing serious, thank God!). Then I ... Read more

Just sitting out here on my plateau

Really, I shouldn't complain. I lost 3lbs 3 weeks in a row, then boom, nothing. Bupkiss. Nada. Zip. Zilch. And, irony of ironies, this was the week I REALLY pulled out all the stops exercise-wise, upping my minutes from 20-25 daily to 30-35, FIV... Read more
3 months in and I'm a veteran??

I got a call the other day, or actually an email, from a lady who's about to have a surgical procedure similar to the one I had - she's having a wrap, slightly different from a gastric band. Anyway, she was reaching out to me - me! - for ad... Read more
