After an endless plateau, the scale finally dropped 2 lb. Maybe it's the exercise I've been doing, or maybe the stressful weekend that for once left me NOT feeling like eating. Whatever, the reason, I can't help but feel pleased to see the scale... Read more
Plateau

I traveled for four days over Labor Day weekend and managed to not gain any weight. I ate well although not perfectly. One evening desserts called my name and I indulged. Airports are also diet hell. Nothing like a 5 hr layover to blow a diet. A... Read more

Yesterday I went to my foot doctor. Last year I had a bunionectomy, and I'm still in pain. He xrayed and said that everything looks ok, no screws coming undone (yeah, hate it when that happens) his diagnosis was chronic inflammation and he put a... Read more

I realized that I missed three weeks of work over the last year for two surgeries and a flu. At age 55, I found it more difficult to get back on the horse so to speak. Going on that bike ride last week helped me realize how out of shape I am. I ... Read more

I've had a horrible day. On the verge of a panic attack and at the moment just wishing I could take a nap. Maybe it was the chocolate. I gave in willingly...to that lover, chocolate. I tried to get up this morning to exercise and couldn't. I re... Read more

I went on an organized "beginner" bike ride on Sat. COULD NOT DO IT! I was deluding myself about my level of fitness. Not only wouldn't my legs function, my heart was pounding and I was breathing heavily. Just couldn't do it. I am so OUT of shap... Read more

OK, so I wrote this long blog and when I went to save it, my computer got wierd...so it's lost. It's good to be home, surrounded by loving friends and family. I also am recognizing the sadness that is under the distraction of family drama. I fee... Read more

Thursday, May 24, 2007      0 comments

I did something out of character for me this past weekend. I bought a scale. Have nvr owned one. I'm such a liberated woman of the 70's that I always saw a scale as a slave driver. Well surprise, I don't weigh as much as I though! That's the fir... Read more
