Again? Yes, again

You know I have tried to get back to this regularly, and for some reason I just don't get here daily. So, instead of beating myself up about it (that's what I do), I'm going to just try the best I can to be true to myself, and get here as often ... Read more

So today I return to Sparkpeople. I don't know how I managed to get away from this for so long, probably because I got busy and didn't put in the time to track. I am starting over now. I put 6 pounds on from my best this holiday season. I ... Read more

Getting involved in the community, improving your health. Both have involved making a move for me and both have made a huge difference in my life. I am now officially less than 1 pound away from making 30 pounds lost. I have worked hard and... Read more
What a world
Friday, August 23, 2013      3 comments

It has been a rough time lately. I live in a city that is plagued with violence, worsening recently. I attended a public meeting last night that included a whole litany of politicos, but more importantly about 300 citizens who want to know wha... Read more

So begins another week. The scale is finally moving - woohoo! I thought I had to make changes and it seems I was correct. I am approaching the 30 pounds mark which is my next milestone. I want to lose a total of 50 so I will be 60% of the way wh... Read more

Today was my official weigh in and the scale hasn't budged. It hasn't' gone up but it hasn't gone down either. I think I know what the problem is. I have a slow metabolism partly brought on by my hypothyroidism. I will not, and absolutely refuse... Read more
Back on Track Day 8
Thursday, August 08, 2013      3 comments

Well, it's actually only day 4 for me, but I'm going to call it 8 because I actually started being more accountable on Aug 1, just didn't joing the group until 4 days later. Hope that's OK. Today and tomorrow are mental health days - away f... Read more
Here we go!

And so, after reading someone's status update, I find where I can read the note that goes along with the goodies I received. If you're reading this and sent one, thank you so much! I had no idea and never really thought about it. Here's what I c... Read more
August already?
Sunday, August 04, 2013      6 comments

They say time is like a roll of toilet paper - the closer you get to the end, the faster it goes. I remember when we were kids summers were FOREVER! Not so anymore. I cannot believe it's already August. Wasn't it just June? Summer is too short h... Read more
Vacation and yet another new start
Sunday, July 21, 2013      1 comments

Sometimes I feel like I'm always starting over. But perhaps it is just another chapter in this continuous book. It is not that I have slacked completely (well, to a point yes it is), just that I am not necessarily participating at my highest lev... Read more

How did it become July already? It is amazing how fast time goes. Still down only 25 pounds since I started this journey...I believe I am in a rut. As I have noted in one of my team posts, I really have not done much recently to move the sc... Read more

After 4 days off with beautiful weather, peace and quiet, it's back to work I go this morning. Got up early, did a small work out, went out and watered everything in preparation for the heat today, and will hop in the shower shortly. I... Read more

Sunday, June 16, 2013      4 comments

Another Father's Day goes by and I am remembering mine who was an awesome person. He loved me unconditionally and I miss him. He is now in heaven with my mom, and has been since October 27, 2004. Can't believe it has been 9 years. I thought I'd ... Read more
