Life is good.
Friday, May 13, 2011      2 comments

I really feel that life is good. Went to the Dr yesterday to weigh in and review meds to see if I could drop any. No more Nexium. That one is big bucks so I'm glad. In 2 months I will have blood work to determine if 3 more meds can be dropped, a... Read more

Today was my ME day. I got to eat whatever I wanted today so Bill and I went to Carino's. YUM! Had my favorites - Spicy Romano Chicken & Tiramisu. Couldn't eat all of it, brought it home for Bill to have tomorrow. I really enjoyed it, especiall... Read more

Have lost 14 lbs to date. Feels really good, and I'm looking forward to losing more - ultimately reaching my goal. That said, I'm having a little trouble right now with exercise. Could be the sinus problems I'm having being allergic to pine, but... Read more

This morning I weighed myself and I had lost 10 pounds! It was all water weight from giving up Coke and most sugar products, but I'll take it. Onward and Upward! ... Read more
In the Mood
Sunday, March 13, 2011      4 comments

I feel like I'm more prepared to do this now. For whatever reason I can't lose weight unless I get obsessive and am "in the mood". Now I'm in the mood. Going shopping today for a journal notebook, a calendar for this quest, small notebook/food j... Read more
I'm Back...

I got off track there for a while and sabotaged myself. I'm really a creature of convenience and ease, so I did what I do naturally... eat, craft, play. My doctor just told me I have to start moving, get up! So, gave up Coke for Lent. Hubby just... Read more

I haven't felt very motivated to walk lately. Rainy weather really affects me. I got the treadmill just for days like these, but now am not motivated at all. I've stuck to meal points etc, but exercise isn't happening. I'm still losing, but I kn... Read more
From size 18 to 16!

Finally, results I can see. Went to buy new jeans today and I comfortably fit in a size 16 now. I was really excited that after 30+ pounds and 78 days I finally lost a pants size! Seems like it took forever, but was definitely worth it. ... Read more
Still Tired...?
Wednesday, November 11, 2009      0 comments

I feel like I've hit some kind of wall. I've kept up with food eating and tracking, but exercise is wearing me out. Not necessarily even exercise...I've had to choose housework as my exercise a couple of times now, very frustrating when I just g... Read more
Getting rest

Still tired after 3 days of taking it easier. Did my morning walks, but not much after that. My steps are definitely not at 10,000 the past few days, but I got some in. Hoping that tomorrow I will be much better rested and able to start again on... Read more

I went to the Dr.s office yesterday to get my blood test results. It was shocking! My Dr. was so pleased, she said she was impressed. She reminded me that my cholesterol was at 366 back in August and is now 168! My triglycerides went down dr... Read more

I had to go for 3 walks today to make the goal of 10,000 steps. Didn't think I had been such a couch potato. Cait and I walked at 5 am for 35 minutes, then after lunch I took the office dog for a short 10 minute walk, and at 8:30 this evening I ... Read more

Last week was the week from the pit. Didn't do too well with exercise or eating, but I jumped back in and tried again and lo and behold - I've lost 2 pounds. I didn't gain anything last week but stayed the same, so I was prepared to just deal wi... Read more
Bad habits are hard to break
Sunday, November 01, 2009      3 comments

Those few days did have ill effects. I did ok yesterday until evening when I had caramel popcorn. DH was eating some, his weakness is sweets at night, and I shared some with him. So now I know to always be prepared and aware. Can't really relax ... Read more
