It's a great thing, having a job in this economy. I lost mine back in February when the store I was working for closed down, and was scared for a long time I would never find one again. All that changed last month when I was re-hired by a ... Read more
I Did It!
Saturday, July 19, 2008      1 comments

I finally did it. FINALLY! I thought last week-end would be when I finally hit my number, but due to being gone to the WPB shows (DMB) and PMS (I know, TMI) it was not a good week-end to hit it. But I got out of my post-show funk, hit the tra... Read more
Almost at goal, years later.
Saturday, July 05, 2008      0 comments

I can't believe I'm just two pounds away from my goal. I have been shooting for this number since Dec. 05, and it seems surreal to me that it's almost here. I've been excited all week; my hope was to lose it this week, just in time for my two-... Read more

Thursday, June 26, 2008      2 comments

Now that I am getting close to goal, and physically it shows, I am getting little reminders here and there of some of the things I do NOT enjoy about this new healthy lifestyle. Oh, I mean, the lifestyle is good, but some of the 'things' that s... Read more
Take Time to Make Time.

Back from vacation - and lost weight! It is shocking to me, because usually when I think of taking a vacation, I think about being lazy, eating out practically every meal and coming back a little heavier. But this time, I didn't 'take a vacati... Read more

Spiritual but not Religious
Thursday, May 08, 2008      0 comments

I have described myself in this manner for a long time, and more and more I find others who are attracted to that statement or also feel the same way about their soul progress. So I thought I would share some of my favorite books for those that... Read more
The end of THE plateau for me!
Monday, May 05, 2008      0 comments

If you keep making the right choices, the plateau will end eventually. After working hard for weeks, increasing my exercise and watching my diet were not showing up as progress on the scale. So I kept reminding myself that my healthy ch... Read more
To Gym or Not to Gym. Hmm.
Monday, April 28, 2008      0 comments

I've been thinking about going back to the gym for awhile now. I've had an on again/off again affair with fitness centers and exercise routines for much of my life, and I've had incredible successes at times using a gym. I just seem to h... Read more
