Sunday, March 25, 2012      0 comments

I never thought I could say this again but I am finally free from my sugar addiction. Last Sunday I had a bad cold and didn't even leave the house. I ached from head to toe and knew a great deal of my feeling so lousy lately had been just beca... Read more
I just can't find the motivation
Tuesday, February 21, 2012      2 comments

I don't want this to sound like a poor me thing. Bottom line is that I'm not motivated and can't seem to get the motivation I need. I was so excited to join the weight loss group at work when I first started there. Unfortunately it was the ho... Read more

I am wanting to get this last 20 pounds off and the goal was to do it by January 1. Well, it's not impossible I guess but at the rate I've been going this year, I just don't see it happening. Do I sound discouraged? I guess maybe I am. ... Read more

I did great on my calories today and I did lots of mowing and cleaning at work today too. I am steadily seeing the scales go down already and even my jeans are getting baggier. I mainly attribute that to getting rid of the bloating from all th... Read more

I'm back on track and seeing some progress. Has it been easy getting back on track? Not always but I am getting the willpower back and the strength to say no to certain foods. I have had only one candy bar in the past week. That's a huge imp... Read more

I am finally really back on track and feeling much better about myself and not looking at this as a "have to" any more. I'm once again doing this because I want to do it for me. I am doing great at staying away from the candy and junk at work... Read more

I found myself working very long days with little sleep and just grabbing whatever I could out of the fridge at work to eat. Needless to say I packed on several pounds. I decided to take 4 days of vacation and just rest and restore and reflect... Read more

I haven't been doing the greatest on this journey lately. I have a lot of excuses but in reality none of them fly. I have been just coasting along and fooling myself that I will begin to lose the weight with out a great deal of effort. WRONG!... Read more

I had a hectic day. I never did get all the things done I wanted to. I went and got my flu shot and paid bills. I got my taxes done. Oh joy. I learned a lesson or two on that front. I'm back to work tomorrow. It is going to be a cra... Read more

It has been a good couple of days. I got a good walk in yesterday. I didn't get anything really accomplished today. Wait, I did! I got my hair cut. REALLY SHORT! I know some people won't like it but they don't have my hair and they don't h... Read more

All I can say is I blew it this weekend. I gained a couple pounds instead of losing. I ate out too much, had the granddaughter and had to spoil her with treats, and of course I had to have some too. Then Sunday after church the pastor and his... Read more
