I weighed 123.8 this morning, below what I was aiming for, around a BMI of 20. Yesterday was a low sodium day so I don't think I need to add calories yet. Those of you who are long, long-term readers of my blog may remember back in the summ... Read more

Enjoyed a bike ride this morning after a couple weeks of tire problems. First the air compressor broke and then hubby bought a much better one, but it was complicated. When we finally figured it out, it didn't seem to work on my tire. We bought ... Read more

Running: Great 13.2 mile run this morning! It was 65 degrees this dark early morning and felt really good. At first I was disappointed that the Galloway Program Director kept me in the slower group. I didn't get to run my longest run ever, the 1... Read more
Short Blog; Long Battle
Friday, October 11, 2013      21 comments

Scale was at 127.0 this morning, but I'm not discouraged. I'm ready to fight this one pound to get me to a solid 126.0 average. Part of me thinks it's a silly battle; but another part thinks this is the final and worthwhile battle in my war with... Read more
I'm Dancing Smaller!

126.6 today, so for right now I'm still above 126 more than I'm below. However, today I put on an outfit I bought in July to wear to the Senior Dance and the skirt and belt were obviously too big. Might be the core strength training or perhaps t... Read more

I'm still on the quest to nail down my final goal weight and the healthy lifestyle to support it. I'm testing whether 126 will work for me long time. Yesterday morning I weighed in at 125.6, so that is my second fluctuation below 126. This morni... Read more

The current challenge I have set for myself is to nail down and finalize a goal weight during this year, 2013. I made my initial goal weight in March of 2009 at Weight Watchers. Fifty six free monthly weigh-ins after that achievement, I'm still ... Read more
Come Too Far
Saturday, October 05, 2013      19 comments

Yesterday I was at 127.0 on the scale and had to talk to myself about not being disappointed. I'm hoping to go more than 6 days this time of weighing less than 127, but I accept that what I have direct control over is my eating. Weight fluctuate... Read more
