What Has Worked
Monday, August 21, 2017      6 comments

I have tried just about every diet under the sun. Most of the time I lose a few pounds the first week followed by ounces the next week...that's all! I then get stuck. Even if I increase my exercise, I tend to get stuck after losing seven to t... Read more
Doing Well
Friday, June 23, 2017      6 comments

Ever so slowly, but at least the scale is going south. I'm down four pounds from May. I have increased my exercise and lowered my carbs. I even tried the Keto plan for a few days. I will tell you that Keto works for dropping the pounds. B... Read more

Wednesday, June 14, 2017      3 comments

My usual exercise is walking. When I walk (not as often as I should), I average two miles which take me about 35 minutes and equals 180 - 200 calories. Well, I just discovered that using the elliptical for 20 minutes I burn 210 calories. So f... Read more

I have lost and gained the same three to four pounds over and over...But I have learned what works and what does not work well. I make a lot of excuses and have tried so many different "diets" these past several weeks. However, to be hones... Read more

It's good to remind ourselves that we do have choices when it comes to losing weight. As most weekends, my eating was out of control. I ate whatever I wanted and kept telling myself that Monday will be a new start. So as you can imagine... Read more

Friday, April 21, 2017      3 comments

I read somewhere that people tend to be 10% happier on Friday. I'm not sure how accurate that information is, but I'm doing the happy dance. To make things better, it is nice and hot here in Los Angeles. I might even head out to the beach tom... Read more

I am so ready for the weekend! For the past several months, I have a mental list of all the things I need to do around the house. It mostly involves decluttering closets. I tackled the pantry yesterday. Hopefully, I'll finish the kitchen cab... Read more
Now I Get It!

I logged in my breakfast and lunch. I have 570 calories left! I think I've known all along that even though I have been eating healthy, I tend to go way over my calorie allowance (which is not much...1200). I've got to keep on tracking. Hav... Read more

Although I have not blogged in a very long time, I'm here almost everyday. I have not given up; but I have not accomplished my goal. I get motivated and lose 5 - 7 lbs only to gain them right back. I eat very healthy most of the time. It's... Read more

I started walking and logging my food again yesterday. A good thing that I have noticed, is that I never give up. I do, however, seem to take a lot of brakes. I'm up two more pounds. So here I go again. Wish me luck.... Read more

The last time I exercised was last Wednesday. That makes it seven days of sedentary lifestyle. I have increased my eating as well. Bottom line, I have regained the two pounds I lost. Yikes! Walking in the evenings is not working out beca... Read more
Sticking to My Plan
Wednesday, March 18, 2015      1 comments

I've been tracking my food and exercise for five days in a row. This is an all time record for me and has taught me a few things. First of all, I don't consume enough iron and my carbs are a bit too high. Ugh! The carbs goes back to my oatme... Read more
