I just want to forget last week
Monday, June 22, 2020      7 comments

Last week was really hard for me. I kept gaining weight during the week and didn't really care how much I ate. I finally decided today that I was in one of depression episodes last week. It was a real low culminating yesterday on Father's Day. ... Read more
Being on Furlough
Wednesday, June 17, 2020      3 comments

I believe I mentioned before that my company furloughed me for a few weeks. I have been working full time since I was 18 so it feels strange to be sitting at home without working. I am getting unemployment so I can pay what I need to, saving wh... Read more

This might be TMI but I had a cancerous lesion removed from my arm right after Christmas. Good news is they got it all and I am fine. The part that was awful was having ten stitches in my arm for 12 days. Now I know why they call them stitches... Read more
New Year - New ME?
Friday, January 04, 2019      3 comments

I have been reading how blogging can be a wonderful tool in getting support. I find my problem is finding something to blog about. I was doing really well last spring. I had set a goal of losing 5 lbs per month, which I thought was a reaso... Read more
Food Problem
Tuesday, July 10, 2018      7 comments

My biggest food problem is bad afternoon snacking. Our meal schedule runs on the late end (breakfast at 9, lunch at 2 and dinner at 7) Even though I eat a late lunch, at about 4:30 I want to snack on something salty. I always crave chips, crack... Read more
Thankful For...

Three things I'm thankful for are: 1 - my knee that I had surgery on over a year ago is working like it's supposed to. 2 - I am getting a new position at work so I won't have to work as much overtime. 3 - the 30 lbs I lost in the last... Read more

My greatest struggle in my weight loss journey is myself. I tend to be harder on myself than on others. I put myself down and don't any confidence in myself that I can succeed. This coming week, I'm going to exercise 2 days and keep up my ste... Read more

Hard to believe December is here already. December 1 is my DH birthday and we had pizza and cake. Lots of veggies on the pizza and the cake is chocolate cake with cool whip mixed with fruit cocktail. It is one he requests every year. For the ... Read more

Woo hoo! I love margaritas. I know too much of the sweet drink is not good, both with alcohol and not but the flavor it so good. In the summer time, I make chicken marinated in margarita mix on the grill. It gives the great flavor or the lime... Read more

I think those of us with pets see this as every day. I have 2 cats, one really likes to snuggle and sleeps snuggled up next to me all night. The other one is not a snuggler but loves having his head scratched and will actually ask when he reall... Read more
2/13/17 - National Tortellini Day
Monday, February 13, 2017      1 comments

I've always had a love/hate relationship with tortellini. I've had some that was spectacular and some that was awful. When it's awful, it's a gooey mess. Undercooked doughy pasta, too much sauce, not enough filling. When I do like it, I like t... Read more

Wednesday, February 08, 2017      2 comments

I don't know about you, but this seems a little early in the year. Yes, we have lots of wind right now but there is still snow on the ground in many places. I never was good with kites. I always thought it looked like fun.... Read more
