It's been a very challenging six months and I've terribly neglected myself - including my food plan. I've gained back up to 204 pounds which has made this time even more challenging. However, I am going to get back to working the plan. For the f... Read more

My Blood Pressures are running normal and I've cut my BP pill in half. Next goal: cut the medicine out completely. Prayers for a good day for all my SparkLand friends. God bless.... Read more

Last year at this time I was in-hospital trying to recuperate from a very serious illness. Over the past year, I have been up and down (mostly down) during my recovery. I still have lots of "bad" days when my body does not do what I want it to -... Read more

Have been spending the summer in northern MI and really haven't had a chance to blog very much, but I wanted my spark friends to know I'm still alive and kicking. We've been very busy this summer; we've cleaned some more on our property, mo... Read more
The dreaded plateau . . .
Tuesday, May 16, 2017      6 comments

I am currently dealing with that dreaded plateau. Even though I've known this obstacle would "crop up" during my weight loss, it's still one of the few (and, for me, the most) unpleasant aspects of weight loss. HOWEVER, I will persevere an... Read more

WOOHOO!!! Surgeon released me today; said he don't have to see me anymore unless I run into difficulty. Other good news is that I've been sticking to my program and am starting to lose weight again. I again have a ways to go, but a slow sta... Read more

Still getting used to my freedom from home healthcare. Seems like it has changed my entire attitude - like I'm REALLY well now. And the weird thing is that it makes me much more determined to get my weight off. I've had some very good days stic... Read more

I'm always very honest in putting my feelings in my blog, It takes away so much of the "imaginary" issues when I write about my feelings, progress (or lack thereof), food issues, general day-to-day challenges, etc,. Today I find myself thri... Read more

I was FINALLY discharged from home healthcare today. Seven months postop and they finally turned me loose!!! I have to say it was bitter-sweet. The nurses have become like family and I'm going to miss them terribly. But after such a long time be... Read more

No loss today, BUT, no gain either!!! I can definitely live with that. I'll take some time until my next weigh-in to reflect on the reasons I am making this gradual life change. Reading my blogs is a great motivator since they clearly stat... Read more

My home health care nurse told me they'll probably be releasing me early next week. YIPPEE! They've been making regular visits for 7 months and I was feeling like it was never going to end. I know I'll miss seeing them as we've become very good ... Read more
An honest reflection . . .
Monday, April 17, 2017      2 comments

I've had a hard time lately getting, and staying, on track. I think the worst part of "falling off the wagon" is having to deal with the guilt. When I see the scale going up, and I know the reason it's going up is due to the poor choices I've ma... Read more
