went to see Garth Brooks last night, great concert! walking not so good. I used to be able to walk a mile easy. 3 miles not so much. but this was maybe a half mile total and I was struggling. I did it though! emoticon
Today concentrating on eating light and tracking ALL of my food.

Waiting for my Prince Charming appears to be a lot like waiting for a Fairy Godmother, silver bullet or miracle pill.......
I found my Prince and then lost him to cancer. In between we laughed and loved and argued, and I stayed the same. When I made up my mind, I could do anything. Since losing him, I haven't been able to make up my mind to do anything.
But it is time, it is today, my very favorite day! I hope we can all help each other and enjoy the journey!
Time to let go of the past and live in today, live for wonderful gift of today, the present (of all presents!). emoticon

Swiss cheese and pretzel crisps for breakfast. Headed to work Bingo, then meet a friend to take our dresses to be hemmed at the seamstress. Not sure what I will pick for lunch, but planning on chicken with noodles and peas, salad tonight. Focusing on 3 small meals a day and a small snack. Tomorrow the gym (I hope!).

Back from Phoenix and where do I start? Feeling a bit overwhelmed this morning. I've been up 2 hours and have done nothing but go through emails and talk to DIL on the phone.
I have to go grocery shopping today, which diet will I follow this week? above all needs, I need to focus and eat healthy. I still have to sort through my snail mail, then drag myself out of the house to do something, anything! emoticon

But not enough. When the snow came flying, I stayed home! Snow or not, I have to get out today and tonight.
Tried the counting sugar diet, variation of all low carb-high protein diets. It did kill my cravings from the get go, but I need my fruit and milk! Can't believe a cup of skim milk has 13 grams of sugar!
Anyway, I'm still going to Phoenix Saturday! Yay!

Feeling pretty good today. I went to the gym 5 out of the last 7 days, 2 sessions of strength training, 3 days of cardio. It's a start! The music makes all the difference in the world! emoticon

YAY! took the Ipod to Best Buy and they adjusted the volume for me! Super! now no excuses for not doing cardio.

Had some of my breakfast casserole that is loaded with broccoli in addition to southwest hash browns, eggs, cottage cheese and some cheddar cheese, 98% fat free cream of chicken and about a pound of no skin chicken breast. Very low fat. I had a tuna on toast at the Bingo with a small bag of Cheetos. Not sure what will be for dinner.

Very little if any rain/snow overnight and none today. It is still cold out.

Looking forward to getting up early tomorrow and hitting the gym!

Been to the gym twice this week. 5 cup salad with cucumber and tomato tonight. Been working all day trying to get the sound turned up on my Ipod so I can use it at the gym for motivation. I may have to take it to an apple store and have them show me. I need my mojo back!
Working Bingo tomorrow, so not sure how things will go. Forecast is for rain tonight and snow in the morning.
I want to focus on more veggies and less processed junk in my eating. It is only 18 days before I catch a flight to Phoenix! As will be traveling with my skinny, "normal" friend for 5 days, I might even lose some weight! At least I will be living healthier........... emoticon

Cautiously optimistic, scale is going down, mood has leveled. Depression did a number on me this past year with mood swings. focusing today on loving me and loving my body with healthy choices.

Love working the polls! making new friends, one offered to sponsor me for the Elks Lodge and I put in my application. They all seem so open and supportive and loads of ways to volunteer and help others. I need to keep busy, help others and feel like I make a difference.
Lost a pound a day so far this week. It would be sweet to continue at that rate until my birthday, then I would only be obese and not morbidly obese! emoticon

Haven't given up, but I have been taking things a bit easy over the past week. My energy level was so low. I have started to feel revived again so I am doing better today.

got up early, showered, went to the garden to pull the covers off the tomatoes, some were frozen. emoticon Went to the gym, then grocery shopping. Found Banquet Cheesy Potato Bake, having that with green chili and 3oz roasted chicken for lunch, all for less than 400 calories!. nothing boring about this lunch!

Medicare blues...........finally got signed up for a drug insurance and supplemental, still don't know how much it will cost me. Appears the new insurance will cost about $380 per month compared to my $209/month since I retired. Not what I had anticipated, but I am hoping it will be manageable. I'll know more after my first round of prescription refills when I enter the "donut hole". emoticon
going to go to the gym to work out tonight and take a mat pilates class. can't seem to get up early, have breakfast and get out before noon........... emoticon

Hi: LINWINAGAIN, thanks for adding me as your friend. I have been trying to answer on your page, but its just not happening. I am not very literate on the computer some days, I am sure is my goof.
I did enjoy my gardening this year, and now I am enjoying reaping tomatoes, swiss chard, and beans. I know what you mean about the heat.

Getting better now that summer is almost over. I'm probably the only one who just doesn't like summer! I just can't take the heat in the summer, fall is my favorite time of the year.
Canned tomatoes from the garden last night, went to the gym and road the bike for 50 minutes, then went to the garden to pick some more tomatoes for canning. Tomorrow I'll go to the garden first thing and pull out the weeds and plants that are done for the year.
Fixed a huge salad of greens, zucchini, cukes, tomatoes, green beans, artichoke hearts, asparagus for lunch today. I'll use up some leftovers for supper tonight.

I wish Robin had figured it out. His death blew me away, he's only a year younger than me, but he was so creative, brilliant, talented, loving............. It broke my heart. I grew up "with" him in Colorado when he was playing Mork and Mindy, Aladdin, and so many others. I don't generally mourn actors that die, but this hit me like a train.
I don't generally watch the Emmys either, but I will tonight to see Billy Crystal give his tribute to Robin. I will hear it, not sure how much I will see because the tears have been flowing all day. Even doing my strength training today has not dried them up.
Going to go make a pot of red chili for supper.

bwa-bwa-bwa! tired of my whining, time to get to work! been losing the same 5-10 pounds for a couple of months, tired of the yo-yoing and lack of focus on my part. I have a big job ahead of me to figure out how to survive retirement with my finances, health and sanity!
need to get physical today at the gym and the garden, then start writing random thoughts in my planner/diary to explore my options.
have a great day everyone.........

plugging along, waiting for phone call to set up health care thru Medicare. I hit the big 65 Nov 1st and trying to figure out what to do to avoid the "donut hole" on drugs. I went from 4 scripts to 7 this year and look to have to pay $6k in the first month on any plan............ emoticon

depression is so weird. meds keep me "happy", but not necessarily productive. Today i finally had enough of my dirty house and vacuumed and mopped the floors, cleared off some of the kitchen cabinets and now ready to read the paper....... hope this next week is more focused...

After being lazy since Tuesday (lots of rain), I made it back to the garden to pull weeds in my patch, trim back the zucchini, went to the gym for half an hour on the bike, then back to Home Depot to get some props for one of the tomato cages that fell over and to stake the cucumbers so they will grow up the trellis. 5 hrs of just messing around, but lots of fun!
pulled some little beets to cook for supper and 3 little cukes. the tomato plants look like they've been treated with radiation they are so big and green, like something from the old sci-fi flick The Swamp Thing............lots of blooms and fruit, but none ripe yet........

made it back to the gym today and did my last tour of "duty" at the garden. Now I can concentrate on my patch!

water weight back up today, I don't know what will be the result when I go back to the doctor, but I will never give up! I'm eating better every day and keeping portions under control, eventually I will reach the weight my body needs.

Having my first cucumber from the garden for supper! along with boiled cabbage and a hydroponic tomato from the grocery store, maybe a lean cuisine spaghetti.....

Went to the movies instead of the gym, saw The Jersey Boys. Really good show, it focused on the music, not the mob or sex.........

Tomorrow back to the gym and garden emoticon

34 days until 8/29/14 and only 31 pounds to goal of 224. 10 more pounds to lose this month to go from morbidly obese to "obese". I am finally heading in the right direction again.
I went to the Mother Cabrini Shrine yesterday and walked the 327 steps to the top, very slowly........ emoticon but I made it, emoticon and I was rewarded with a fantastic 360 degree view of a thunderstorm brewing in the mountains and sweeping across the plains to Denver and beyond! You could see clear to the horizon to the east, see the cars headed west on I-70, the surrounding foothills and rising mountains. Absolutely awesome whichever way you turned.
Today I need to check the progress of the garden, pick up the weeds, go to the gym and farmer's market. I may go to Heritage Square in Golden to walk around. The last time I was there they had a dinner playhouse that I took some friends to see, both the friends and theater are gone now, but that was about 9 years ago. It will be good exercise to walk around at any rate.

Finally shaking off this funk! so glad to be back in Colorado and starting to settle in more. My old Body Media Core armband gave out this week, so I ordered a new one today. Following South Beach/low carb eating, it has been the only way I could lose weight in the past. As much as I love bread, it loves me more and sticks to my belly, thighs and hips! Looking forward to football this year, hoping the Broncos will give Pat Bowlen something to cheer about, God bless him!
I'm headed for the gym today, then have my wash to do, then I'm going up to the Mother Cabrini Shrine and try to make it to the top for more exercise! I'm going to start taking advantage of living here in Colorado and use it for my cardio!

47 days until 8/29/14 and only 35 pounds to goal of 224. 14 more pounds to lose this month to go from morbidly obese to "obese".
Slight slip. my motivation went down the drain this week for some reason. I think it was when I figured out the budget for the month, let's just say it was not pretty! I hate being broke! I just have to watch my p's and q's and wait until next month and all will be well.
In the mean time, I made a zucchini pizza crust that tasted absolutely fantastic last night! nothing like bread, but it was chewy and satisfied and that's all that matters to me.
Off to the garden to see what is happening............. emoticon

52 days until 8/29/14 and only 32.2 pounds to goal of 224

Added beans (chili) to the mix and did not lose any weight yesterday. Went to the garden and worked for 45-60 minutes pulling weeds. not much after, came home and sat in the a/c, had a salad. Picked up sugar free Eskimo pies at the store on the way home and had one.

repeated the chili tonight, we'll see what happens tomorrow.

53 days until 8/29/14 and only 32.2 pounds to goal of 224.

a little disappointed this morning, then I "got real" and realized if I can keep losing .6 pounds a day (which is a lot!), I will reach my goal! With it only being day 5 on the SB, I'm still losing and have lost almost 7 pounds. I was a little hungry last night, but I only had a snack for lunch and then a regular amount for dinner. I need to be eating more during the day to keep my body stoked and get back to exercising at the gym.

I watered the garden and pulled some weeds this morning, called my brother and just finished lunch. I had 2 flat bottom taco shells with slow cooker salsa chicken, Santiago's green chili with cheddar cheese on top, and a Yoplait. Now I have to check out some SB recipes, make a shopping list and go to the store. I need to cook some meat for the week and more veggies. I need some new stuff!

54 days until 8/29/14 and only 32.8 pounds to goal of 224. Going to see the new Transformers flick in 3D with my DIL in about an hour. not planning much else, but I need to "do" something for exercise. Tomorrow I have to pull weeds in my garden and check on the watering, go to the farmer's markets for my week's supply of tomatoes and cook some kind of meat, get stuff for salads and other veggies......... and the beat goes on!

Figured out today I only started the South Beach Diet for real on Wednesday, which means I have another 12 days! I've got to check out the recipes so I can make pizza! that is the only bread I miss right now.......

37 days to 8/29/14 goal of 15% weight loss, 33.4 pounds to go. South Beach, no alcohol and green tea with lemon appear to be working! made it to the gym and did the wash! yay me! emoticon

37 days to go. I am continuing with the South Beach Diet, no alcohol, and green tea with lemon as well as add some exercise. I worked out on the treadmill for 30 mins and recumbent bike for 35 yesterday. I'm reading the book on how to super charge the SB diet, I want to do the core exercises today. I may go to the garden tonight and pull some weeds before the fireworks. emoticon

Breakfast was leftover Ruby Tuesday's salad bar with added 3 oz of salsa chicken. I treated myself to Ruby's and kept to salad bar, chicken bella with spaghetti squash. and, I ate half only! but my dessert was yoplait, 2 slices of cheese and pistachios emoticon it is okay, I still lost 1.2 pounds, after losing almost 3 pounds the day before. I will be careful now, because the loss may slow down............

40 days to 8/29/14 goal of 15% weight loss, 38 pounds to go.
picked up some pistachios and broccoli at Sam's Club. Unable to find the South Beach diet book there or at Walmart, so headed to our local used bookstore. Since they are "downtown" Arvada, I will get some walking in and take time to explore! "downtown" is about 5 blocks long and 2 blocks wide.
this afternoon I'll read the book and do my wash, steam broccoli for supper with some slow cooker salsa chicken and a tomato. Salad for lunch

41 days to 8/29/14 goal of 15% weight loss, 38 pounds to go.
Doctor follow up today. First time I saw my medical record notes, ever. New doc shared them with me and set up schedule for follow up testing of cholesterol, upped my blood pressure meds and told me I have atherosclerosis (build up of plaque in the arteries). He recommended the South Beach diet (low carb) and set up blood tests for a month from now and then follow up with him. whoa.
so, all stops pulled out, anything I can think of to help me get the weight off, anything that has helped in the past, will be used in the next month. I want that 15% off! emoticon

Hi Graphics2! if we never give up, we will succeed!

42 days, 38 pounds to go to make my 15% goal by 8/29/14. I managed to lose 5.8 pounds this week, the same 5-6 pounds I've been gaining and losing for the last month. This time they are staying off!! emoticon

Got up early to go to the garden and water before it gets hot out and I'm still sitting at my computer playing around. My Body Media still is charging, so I can use that for an excuse for now.

Will go to the Arvada Farmer's Market after the garden, for some tomatoes and other veggies.

43 days to go. Going to a self help seminar today, hoping for tools to help self! Vegetarian lunch being served, may go to TGI Fridays after or probably talk myself out of it and come home, we'll see how it goes.
