Back at WW Lifetime Weight!
Tuesday, January 07, 2020      8 comments

I'm hoping this time will be different. I'm hoping with the accountability of both my friend, Deb, and WW weigh-ins, I can maintain this weight for once and for all! Wouldn't that be great? I still struggle with too much snacking, however. I kno... Read more

I was pretty stressed out about my weigh-in last Friday for WW Lifetime status. Duane came along (at my request). I wanted a picture with my WW workshop leader, JoAnne, and I knew my friend Deb wouldn't be there. (She is recently back from Cancu... Read more

In approximately 2.5 hours I will step on the scale at WW, and determine if I have achieved Lifetime status or not. You will believe how excited/nervous/stressed I am about this, by noting that I am out of bed and writing this at 6:30 a.m. and h... Read more

I had such a great week with my grandkids. Tuesday afternoon I picked Amber (10) and Noah (5) up from their after-school daycare. They had gone to a park close to my house, because it was an Early-Out Day, so it was super convenient for me. I dr... Read more

We have been to the Bark in the Park Event at the Kansas City Royals Baseball game a couple times before, and enjoyed it. Our Bulldog Juno is always a hit, people think Bulldogs are so ugly, they're cute. We just think she's beautiful. ... Read more

Friday, August 09, 2019      8 comments

I have hit milestones before on my 10-year long weight loss journey: Losing 100 lbs., Getting below 200 lbs., Hitting goal weight. But it doesn't make them any less meaningful when you do it again. Recently I got into the 150's on the home scale... Read more

Obsessed With Weight
Monday, July 22, 2019      8 comments

This weight thing has been part of my life for more years than I care to admit. I'd say about 60 of my 68 years I've been worried about being overweight. It started when I was in third grade, and tried to cinch the belt on my dress tighter to ap... Read more
