A Walk in the Cold
Sunday, January 02, 2011      0 comments

I was trying to decide whether to walk on my treadmill or to walk outside today, and I’m glad I decided to bundle up and walk outside. It was cold, but the wind wasn’t blowing. The light was perfect, and someone had a fire going, so the smell of... Read more
Happy New Year
Saturday, January 01, 2011      1 comments

Happy New Year! I’m hoping that this will be a good year for me. This is the year that I turn 45 years old, which, I guess, is middle age and then some. Oh well, 45 is just another number. Today I am considering my goals for the year. I think th... Read more
Five weeks without fast food!
Tuesday, December 28, 2010      2 comments

December 28, 2010 As of today, it has been five weeks since I have had any “secret” fast food. As a matter of fact, I’ve only had fast food at all one time because that’s what Todd wanted when we were on the road. I haven’t been through a driv... Read more
Different Choices
Wednesday, May 05, 2010      1 comments

If you keep making the same choices, you'll keep getting the same results. I've been reminding myself of that a lot lately, because some of my choices need to change. I've been trying to explain my failure to lose weight as a "plateau," but it i... Read more

I haven’t been doing as well with keeping up with my blog as I would like. It seems like something is always more important than writing down how I am feeling and coping with the changes that I have been trying to make. I think that I have been ... Read more

Day two has come and gone, and I think it was fairly successful. I got up fairly early (for summer) and did some exercises with Todd. We started off easy this morning, and he said we would work our way up gradually. We did some leg extensions, a... Read more

Well, this is day one and I did the official weigh in this morning. I’m not happy about the number I saw on the scale, but that is part of the reason why I am doing this. I want to be happier, and more in control. I feel like I have been in free... Read more

Welcome to my summer Odyssey. I want to take a fifteen week journey this summer, which will, hopefully, successfully start me on the road to health. I have been trying for years to lose weight, with only small success, but this summer, I want to... Read more
Short Term Goal
Monday, March 30, 2009      3 comments

I'm setting a new short term goal. I'm tired of losing and gaining back and losing the same two or three pounds, so my goal is not to gain it back this time! My birthday is in one month (May 1), and I want to lose another four pounds by then (an... Read more
I will not go into auto-pilot
Thursday, January 08, 2009      1 comments

This morning I caught myself about to shift into auto-pilot, and I don't want that to happen. Auto-pilot is when I cruise around, not really thinking, but just allowing myself to graze mindlessly, because that is what I have always done. I suffe... Read more
New Year
Tuesday, December 30, 2008      0 comments

I've been thinking about whether or not I will make any New Year's resolutions this year. I think that for the most part it would be redundant; I've already started making the life changes that I need to make. I just want to resolve to continue ... Read more
Mind Games

I don't know why I keep playing mind games with myself. Just lately my mind games have gone something like this: ME: I really shouldn't eat that. Stupid ME: It's okay, I'll start to really count again after the new year. Or maybe: ME: I really... Read more
Blood Sugar
Tuesday, October 14, 2008      2 comments

My blood sugar has been surging out of control lately. My doctor and I are trying to get it back under control, but it's unstable. When it goes up I feel terrible. I get headache-y and tired. I don't feel like eating right or exercising, which i... Read more
Out of Control
Wednesday, October 08, 2008      2 comments

I don't know what's wrong with me. It's like for the last few days my mind has just snapped. I've gone back to all my terrible old habits, and I have just felt completely out of control. I don't know if it's hormones or stress, or a combination ... Read more
