I am BACK! I have lost some more weight since I last posted (overall, I have gotten rid of 35 pounds since 1/2019). It’s VERY slow weight loss, but I don’t plan to ‘find’ these pounds again, so I guess that’s good. I joined the WW Program las... Read more

I don’t always have something to say that is blog worthy, but this morning, I am celebrating being 15 pounds lighter than I was in January. When I posted my stats this morning, I noticed the graph that records my projected goals with my actual ... Read more

A couple weeks ago, I bought some motivational magnets for my refrigerator. One says: ‘Never let a stumble in the road be the end of the journey.’ Another says: ‘Every flower must grow thru dirt.’ I wanted to share these with my fellow Spar... Read more
Sunny Day!

The sun is shining and the forecast is for 67 degrees today. I am planning to go outside for a walk this afternoon. I will have to be careful to avoid the piles of melting snow and watch for sneaky ice, but it would be wonderful to get some fr... Read more

Yeah. I haven’t been 100 percent at ANYTHING lately. BUT I haven’t QUIT, thrown in the towel, skunk away in defeat... you get the picture. And I am pretty proud of that. I mean, it’s MY journey, and I am not doing it perfectly, but I am wor... Read more

It’s always been my understanding that water would fill me up - help me feel less hunger. I am working hard to increase my water consumption consistently, but I am feeling/hearing my stomach growling. What’s up with that? I wasn’t hungry betw... Read more

I GOT RID of a pound. Didn’t ‘lose’ it and DO NOT want to find it again. So, this morning, I reviewed my ‘stats’. And while I will admit that it is NOT going as fast as I would prefer, it IS going in the RIGHT DIRECTION. A little tweak here ... Read more
Recipe Fail
Wednesday, January 30, 2019      6 comments

I am a good cook, and I LOVE homemade soup. Usually, I can just read a recipe and tell if it will be good/I will like it. This one was for a healthy Asian vegetable soup and it sounded enough like Hot & Sour Soup (my favorite) that I wanted to... Read more

It has been different this time. I have always been a big picture/bottom line person. My ultimate goal is an intimidating distance away, and I won’t reach it today or next week, or even next month! There is no MAGICAL exercise, pill or plan t... Read more
Listening to my body

Yesterday, I kept getting ‘wiggly’. My body is letting me know that I have been sitting TOOOO long. (It’s one of the downsides to living in a senior residence. My lady friends like to sit and talk!) Since coming back to SP, I have become mor... Read more
Weekend Plan

I have never really been a planner when it comes to cooking and eating. Now that I don’t drive any more/no longer have a car, I don’t eat out very often, and I have to give more thought to what is in the freezer and pantry. So, this weekend, I... Read more

So, my clothes are looser, I am moving better and PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO NOTICE the changes in me. (And God bless them for encouraging me!) This evening, my sweet daughter took me to the Y on her guest pass so that we could do some water aerob... Read more

Sometimes my motivation slows or stalls. I just keep reminding myself that one day at a time, one step at a time will get me there. Not tomorrow or even next week, but I am moving forward. ... Read more
