Today is first day I've really embraced water as a new and yet regular part of my world. Sometimes I still want to have something fruity or bubbly on my tongue, but water is my new go-to. I'm excited for this beginning of a new me!... Read more

I'm happy with the scale today. It's been two weeks since our last visit. During that time, one of my friends traveled from Michigan and was our house guest for a week. We had a great time but food choices were made with limited restraint. Regar... Read more
Day 2

Today brings me to the end of 2 days of good food choices. At work I have a great support team and we are all working on a similar goal, although my loss need is far greater than any of theirs. I now have a doctor, great support at work, great s... Read more

It's been a very long time since I took care of myself properly. I feel like I know what to do, like exactly what to do. Now, after a breast cancer scare, I've been advised that I'm diabetic with high blood pressure. The bp isn't that high (10 p... Read more

It's been almost 13 years since my mother abruptly passed. The circumstances were bizarre and it left me with a lot of things unsaid. I could go on and on about that but there is nothing to benefit from that and the great risk that I get back in... Read more
Lists are my friend...
Friday, August 27, 2010      3 comments

Over the last few months, I have really made a consious effort to get things done rather than have a mental list of things to do. Seeing how I so often felt like I was loosing my mind, a mental list is just that much more unrealistic! ... Read more

That's what I've been telling myself for weeks now. If someone else had said it, it would have resulted in me being in a real funk, but when I say it to myself, it typically ends up that I have found the trigger button that gets me to take actio... Read more

So, I am back in the saddle. :D After just over a week off from the gym (Dr. ordered), I have been back and striving for more time on the elliptical. The ST has been consistent and I am either feeling stronger or just feeling the effect of... Read more

So, if anybody has any thoughts on this, please feel free to share. First off, I'm very proud of my food choices and activity levels over the last few weeks. I have committed myself to working out 4 days a week, but have scheduled for 5. I... Read more
It's Friday & I'm feeling... tight?

I'm back on the wagon now. Full fledged and feeling good about taking control and making conscientious decisions for my own well being. Not only am I eating much (MUCH!!!) better for my body, I am also fully engaged in my athletic club now. ... Read more

So, it's been a long while since I've made my health a priority. My self esteem, weight, and health have suffered for it. 9 days ago, I rejoined Bally's after a 5 year break and 6 days ago I met with a personal trainer. What does it say that she... Read more
Green pants
Wednesday, August 12, 2009      7 comments

I can wear my green pants!!! Many many months ago, I had a little fashion show for the S/O, displaying anything that would fit. There were a large number of things that I had just left unworn for years. There was an equally large number of... Read more
Updated visual!

So, I realize it's a totally lame picture (poor lighting, bad angle, etc.), but it's a good one for other reasons. The biggest reason for it being a good picture, it is shows... Read more

So, EA Active makes me feel a little goofy at times, but the last 2 days I have really felt as though it's doing more than just keeping me off my tush. My arms hurt. A good hurt though. The tension band is lame, but I just step on it low enough ... Read more
