The scale says I still have 4 lb. to go to reach my goal. The glass is either half empty (I'm stuck) or half full (I'm holding my own.) Either way is ok. Time for a break. Time to reintroduce a few things to my eating plan. Time to increase... Read more

Only four more pounds until I reach my personal weight goal. Not the ideal weight from the charts but safely out of the obese zone. Sustainable and comfortable. But my tracker just isn't moving. I know why. I'm tired (bored)? I'm not 100%.... Read more

I'll keep this short because I'm in a mood... irritable and cranky for no particularly good reason. A friend of mine refers to this state as our "inner brats" taking over. My motivation is non-existent. It's raining and I don't want to walk... Read more

Wednesday, May 20, 2015 8 comments
Went into the grocery store with a very short list yesterday and came out with two new flavors of B &J's ice cream... on sale no less. Got home, ate an early dinner, and opened both cartons. Ate most of both but ditched the rest. ... Read more

This time of year the grass grows quickly in my somewhat damp neighborhood and really needs mowing every 5 days or so. The job was on my to do list for Wednesday - a day with cooler temps and no rain forecast. As I sat here enjoying my sun... Read more

I've hit that place where I just don't want to... eat healthy, count calories, exercise, clean the house... Arrrgh! But I'm within 10 lbs of my goal so I can't give up - I won't give up. I need to get there so the last pants hanging in my cl... Read more

Have been giving thought to maintenance - only 10 more pounds to my target weight! I will still be in the "overweight" zone but I chose my target as a) attainable and b) sustainable. Maintenance will be my biggest challenge. I have never succ... Read more

Yesterday's brunch with family ended on a successful, rather than "ugly" (see yesterday's blog), note. I made a reasonable meal choice (eggs, homefries, sausage, toast) at least as compared to some of the menu options. When it arrived, I cut t... Read more

The very abbreviated explanation of today's title: The good... it's a beautiful day, I reached my ultimate goal of 10,000+ steps yesterday... The not-so-bad... I lost another pound and am going to try a 20min or so interval walk on my... Read more
