Tomorrow I will be leaving with all 4 kids after school to visit my friend ATDMSMOM and her 2 adorable boys (my hubby has to stay home to work). The 4-hour drive will most likely be interesting. We'll be grooving to the Backyardigans on iTunes... Read more

I'm amazed I've been able to stick to my eating plan so well. My life's been crazy busy. I was a little late to school (late for me - not according to contract;) this AM so I could fix my breakfast and my salad for lunch. I am so happy with h... Read more

Today was a very sad day, as we had a funeral for my uncle. I will miss him and his unique (at times raunchy) sense of humor...he always kept us laughing, blushing, and feeling very special. As much as I will miss him, it was his wife, sibling... Read more

These words came out of the lips of my 7yo daughter today. Oh, boy, here we go already. I explained that yes, he is a boy, and yes, he is a friend, and she has MANY friends who are boys and girls. But she came back and told me that "no, he's ... Read more

That's how I feel. I've been in school 8 days and I have a cold already. Oh, well... I had a hungry day today. It's strange because I had an unusually large breakfast, decent lunch...but after school I was hungry. Luckily I was too busy to ... Read more

I've done a lot of reflection lately about this healthy journey I'm on. A year ago, I weighed 131. Between the start of school and through the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, I gained 11 pounds. Then I stayed at 142 through this past Jul... Read more

So, I've had a few unexpected "curves" thrown at me lately. A few of them have given me the opportunity to veer off track with my healthy eating. The last two mornings, I have not had time to pack my lunch, but I used acceptable alternatives. ... Read more

Seriously...I'm so happy, excited, amazed...that these little feet, standing on the scale reading in the 120's now, are mine. These are MY feet. It's unreal, really. I've been trying to lose weight (this time) since March 2006, and I've never... Read more

Although this topic is one that has been on my mind for a while, a fellow Sparker's postings have moved me to write on this topic... It's amazing how motivating it can be to have friends and family comment on your weight loss. It's been qu... Read more
Weekends..."check"
Saturday, August 25, 2007      3 comments

For the longest time, weekends were a struggle for me. It was never a "free for all", but I definitely ate things I shouldn't have. I'd lose a pound or 2 during the week, and then put on a pound or 2 over the weekend. After some encouragement... Read more

When I wanted something comfy to wear I'd always pull out my favorite pair Of denim breeches, they looked so sleek A must-wear item twice a week. My overly curvaceous form they flattered. They held up well, not yet tattered. At fi... Read more

Rough, rough day today. Very stressful. And I am very emotional as a result. So when I went to the freezer tonight to get my low carb ice cream treat, the empty hole where my box of treats used to sit brought me to tears...boy, that's pitiful... Read more

Yikes!! Day 2 of school and I'm a grump! I had a couple issues at school and then a busy evening at home and I'm just a grump, with a headache to accompany. I'm still doing fine with the food planning. It just seems pretty easy right now... Read more
