NOT Happy with Facebook "LIKE" Button Showing up on SP Blog Entries
Friday, January 13, 2012      17 comments

I'm copying and pasting MICHIGAN LORI's post because I couldn't say it any better: "If you haven't noticed it yet, view one of your blog posts. There is a new Facebook 'Like' button option on your blog posts. I think this was a bad mo... Read more
Going out to eat -- pleasure or mine field?
Wednesday, January 11, 2012      13 comments

We had a gift certificate for a Catfish House. It expired at the end of January so "he who must be obeyed" INSISTED that we use it. I'm not originally from the south so I never even had catfish until we moved to Arkansas. I have to admit... Read more

"Monday Motivation: Many dieters have a tendency to focus on the one or two mistakes they made that day instead of recognizing the dozens of positive things they have done. We always remind dieters that two wrong things IN NO WAY negates 20 r... Read more
"Life is Happening Now -- not 10 pounds from now." - Indygirl
Sunday, January 08, 2012      10 comments

My husband constantly corrects me when I keep talking about our health and fitness goals like they are in the future. He has to keep reminding me that we aren't "going" to do this, we ARE doing this! It's disconcerting to realize that I al... Read more
There is no option but SUCCESS!

My weight isn't coming down as fast as I would like (of course), but I'm doing everything right so I'm staying the course and not getting discouraged! Here's a link to an article of "transformations" I saw on Yahoo! first thing this morning... Read more
SO much Wisdom on Sparkpeople!
Friday, January 06, 2012      11 comments

Often I feel that I spend too much time on the computer -- between my online classes, personal stuff and Spark -- and of course the thing I tend to cut out is the time on Sparkpeople. But I'm not going to do that anymore! I have to devote ... Read more
Project ME
Thursday, January 05, 2012      10 comments

Thanks for all the positive comments on yesterday's blog about "tea time." Yes, how amazing that a simple change of beverage was all it took to shake a bad habit. Sometimes the answers are right in front of our noses and we don't see them! ... Read more
Tea Time
Wednesday, January 04, 2012      10 comments

One of the bad habits that was a stumbling block for me was that late afternoon glass of wine. I would come home from work and TC would stop working in the yard or garden and, we would sit on the deck or in my office and have a glass of wine. ... Read more
Goals and Plans for 2012.
Friday, December 30, 2011      9 comments

I made SO many false starts in 2011, I'm embarrassed to go all "gung ho" about 2012. But I know I can't go back and start 2011 over again, so I just have to suck it up and start right here, right now. Actually, TC and I started 11.5 da... Read more
OUT with the old.
Wednesday, December 21, 2011      12 comments

Cleaned out my closet and a bunch of drawers today. It felt good to purge a lot of the work clothes I know I'd never wear again as well as a lot of stuff that hasn't fit in years. I was dismayed to see how many articles of clothing still had t... Read more
Who says you have wait until January 1 to get started?
Monday, December 19, 2011      11 comments

I've been holding my own but have not moved forward. I mean, really, who wants to start in earnest in the second half of December? But for the past week my husband's blood pressure has really been out of whack. Saturday, when he finally t... Read more
Home Again
Saturday, December 10, 2011      6 comments

Our vacation was wonderful but YES, we are back a month early. We were in South Carolina, waiting out a stalled rainy-weather front and we just looked at each other and decided we were ready to go home! So we did. Of course, getting h... Read more
Week in Review
Monday, November 21, 2011      6 comments

I just found a button that gives a 7-day average for the data collected from my GoWearFit armband. I've worn it faithfully all week, so I thought I'd report my averages: Calories Burned: 2,099 Calories Consumed: 1,373 Deficit: -723... Read more
Small Successes Set the Stage
Saturday, November 19, 2011      5 comments

Yesterday I felt stressed and anxious about a couple of events. I felt the knee-jerk reaction to use my "go to" coping mechanisms. But even as I felt the urge I knew I didn't want to undo my six great days. So....I slowed down. I took de... Read more
Optimism
Friday, November 18, 2011      7 comments

I like Watermellen's comment on my page: "Optimism -- the more you use it the more you have it!" How true is that? And I'm feeling very optimistic -- today is Day Six for me of sticking to my plan. Thanks to everyone for your comment ... Read more
