Exercise 😖
Tuesday, May 16, 2017      3 comments

Returning from our latest Campout, I weighed in and see that I've finally stripped off 35 of my 50 pounds. I waited two days to post this so I could recheck! Yay! ... Read more
Grrrrrrr! I bounced up a couple of pounds
Saturday, April 08, 2017      1 comments

It is so frustrating. I am continuing to count. I am doing my walks and not including those to add to my 1200 calories and the last couple of days my weight has increased by a couple of pounds. I am not a happy camper - but I've read the s... Read more
Keep Counting
Wednesday, April 05, 2017      1 comments

It is getting a bit easier. I am becoming more adept at guessing where the daily caloric intake is at any given time. At the same time I am seeing the danger of dependence on mind counting as opposed to tracker for me. It is easy to taste the d... Read more

My husband and I spent two weeks traveling to pick up our new-to-us travel trailer, visiting relatives and admiring new scenery. It was lovely and warm... Read more

I have been good - the right calorie intake and exercise (my pup Henry is loving it). However, I seem to be stuck. I am looking forward to getting into the "overweight" at 185 as opposed to the other nasty column with my current 188.5 pounds. ... Read more
Calorie Advice Please
Thursday, March 02, 2017      2 comments

Any advice? I start my day with 1200 calories available as my lower range. My Fitbit adds calories in (when the dang thing works) to the available calories for the day. Today the lower range is 1563 after the Fitbit addition. Today I... Read more
The Ugly Truth
Tuesday, February 28, 2017      3 comments

I am at 188.1 today. I need to be at 185 to dip into overweight and 150 to reach the top of the healthy range for my height. I know it is true... Read more
Fitbit Frustration
Sunday, February 26, 2017      3 comments

I have been trying to like the Fitbit. I really found the Spark device useful and easy. The Fitbit, on the other hand, has been frustrating. ... Read more
Panera ??? Help!
Tuesday, February 21, 2017      4 comments

I'm heading to Panera for dinner (if the car repair finishes up) and have over 600 calories remaining to my lower marker of 1200 calories today. Looking up Panera on line I see a delicious looking Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich for a full sandwic... Read more
Down Twenty-Two
Monday, February 20, 2017      3 comments

I've lost 44% of my 50 pound point target. I do find that pretty amazing. I haven't been hungry - except now and then, and that activates the hard boiled egg cure. I depend on a few dishes that my husband and I both like and cook them in bulk (... Read more
Weather is Moving in Again - Walking?
Sunday, February 19, 2017      1 comments

Yesterday and so far today my walking has been minimal. 😕 I know I have to get moving if I want to keep moving those pounds! It has been grey, drippy and gusty and my interest in getting out there is tiny to say the least. My pup Henry just... Read more
Six for Dinner
Saturday, February 18, 2017      5 comments

Auntie Joy is having guests and asked if I'd make dinner for us all tonight. She requested my (pre diet) pot roast. It is yummy - but not the best choice for me right now. I got up early to prep the veggies and trim the fat off the chuck roast a... Read more

A Very Satisfying Dinner

More calories than I usually have at dinner, but I saved up a bit extra. 618 calories including 1/2 apple and 1/2 avocado, one cup of chicken salsa ... Read more
