I'm struggling again. Seems I periodically have these episodes...can't call them days because they're more than a day here/day there and sometimes goes on for weeks at a time. I don't want to go to work. I don't want to go to the store. ... Read more

4 years ago, my marriage almost ended. We finally worked things out & have been fine since, or so I thought. Last week, seemingly out of the blue, the situation re-surfaced...at least that was the first I'd seen of it. I'm hurt. I'm lost... Read more

It is important to measure, as well as weigh... Since re-starting SP at the end of February, I've lost 16 lbs total...5.6 since starting the Summer BL Challenge. I've lost 6.5 inches from my hips/waist/thigh/arm...2.5 since starting BL. ... Read more

Sometimes you just have to get back to nature to ground yourself. I went for a walk/hike at our Nature Center this morning, a place I haven't visited in years even though it's only about 7 miles from our house. 2.75 miles of beautiful scenery ... Read more

Finally, after being down for a week, I'm starting to feel semi-normal again! Still sore, but the pain has given way to just an ache...and I'm determined to slowly work that out. Time to get movin' again! ... Read more

For the second time since re-starting SP, I've been ordered by my Dr to take it easy & rest...something I don't do well. This time I've somehow gotten a cervical strain. So I'm stuck trying to decide which is worse; the pain-or the sleepy/drunk ... Read more

Yesterday was the first full day with my new pedometer...4200 steps with no workouts. At least I know my starting point and now see where I'm at & where I need to go. Weight has been holding steady even without maintaining workouts over th... Read more

I love my husband dearly. But, he is the one that can hurt me the most, and usually doesn’t even realize it. He’s always been a sarcastic person…anybody that knows him, knows that if he’s not giving you a hard time, something’s wrong. You hav... Read more

Today I finally reached my goal weight. I'd been stuck within 2 lbs of goal for what seems like forever. I wasn't sure what I thought I'd feel when I finally hit "that magic number"...Relief? Elation? But whatever I thought I'd feel, it wasn't a... Read more
