I can walk again!

Got my orthotics yesterday. Best money ever spent. Even though I'd been doing PT, I didn't feel like I could walk without knee pain. Got my orthotics yesterday and walked a half-hour on the treadmill today! That's the longest I've been able to w... Read more

I've gone back to my diet of three years ago, which monitors the GI Index/Load and pretty much got rid of all sugars and refined carbohydrates. Also limiting caffeine, carbonation and artificial sweeteners (Stevia is natural so using that). So f... Read more
Health Confession

Remember when I said I blew it on June 13? Well, that led to a full-on binge that lasted several weeks and made me gain about 7 lbs. *sigh* A lot of other things happened during that time: I switched mental health professionals and the ne... Read more

A day stuck at the mall (a really good one, though!) and another day celebrating my husband's birthday at a brunch I threw---and the point counting and exercise went out the window. Didn't exercise at all last week, partly because of the heat an... Read more

I've been great the last few days--under my WW points limit and exercising an average of an hour a day of cardio...and I put on 1.2lbs? I've started a new med recently (I hope it's not that) and maybe it's that time of the month coming on (it's... Read more

I've been back on track for 21 days now (started May 1) and have been exercising for a week (missed just one day). I'm feeling much better, especially since I'm withdrawing from some anti-depressant meds. Up to over an hour of exercise a day, h... Read more

I actually LIVE for my daily session at the gym. It makes me feel so good to get my heart rate up above 140 bpm and I feel exhilarated for hours after working out. I think I'm blessed to enjoy exercise so much because I'm surrounded by people wh... Read more

of the new Weight Watchers program and I'm really loving it. Just knowing fruit is free is very empowering--it means that if I finish all my points early, I know I could still have a big salad and fruit as a meal. I'm also finding that having 49... Read more

So far I'm liking being back on WW and trying out the Points Plus plan. There's something really wonderful about eating a cup of fresh pineapple or a banana in your breakfast cereal and adding 0 points! This morning I had 3/4 cup of Newman'... Read more

Rejoined Weight Watchers, where I started losing weight back when I was 17. Was intrigued by their new Points Plus program that allows all vegetables (except peas, corn and potatoes) and all fruits (even bananas) as "free". I'll let you know wha... Read more

No longer doing my column (I left the publication because I disagreed with the publishers on many levels regarding ethics) and am just doing real estate now so it leaves me time to devote to Sparkpeople. Thanks to all those who emailed encourage... Read more

It's been almost a month since my last blog and things have certainly changed. Stress got the best of me (panic attacks and all) and that, combined with my son's recurring illnesses and a trip to Chicago, wreaked havoc with my eating plan and my... Read more

With the two jobs came more stress. And I was back to noshing on sugary things. Picked up a few pounds but now I'm back on track and down 1. Two more to go to where I was. On the positive side, I did my 1,000 fitness minutes this month (another ... Read more
