  • It's Friday!

    2/28/2020 7:24:01 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    Weigh in, WW meeting and last work out with Katie. Hopefully, lunch with Beth and dinner later with Monty! Good day ahead. Yesterday was pretty good, food all good, beautiful nails and toes....no Mary at the gym so no walk in the pool. It worries me when she goes through these periods where she ... Read more

  • Another Aha Moment~!

    2/27/2020 6:40:43 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    Just finished reading a blog that says stop worrying about snacking - look at your total calories for the day...my addition....versus calories burned! Whew, a new way to look at my food intake. So simple, why has it took me so long to face this simple fact. Okay, I've cut wayyyyy back on the suga... Read more

  • Hump Day!!!

    2/26/2020 6:52:27 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    Did pretty good yesterday. Not perfect, but I am sure not perfect! Today is Zone day! Hopefully my friend is feeling better and will be there to walk with me in the pool. She had vertigo yesterday so I took a spin on the treadmill rather than get into my swimsuit and in the pool. Walking by one... Read more

  • Madri Gras!

    2/25/2020 7:01:26 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    I love the feeling of the beginning of lent. I'm not catholic but have always loved the pageantry of the pre Easter, spring, new beginnings - just the season make me happy. Don't know why, grew up in Sooth Florida, spring is nothing particularly special, lots of trees in bloom, wild flowers (not m... Read more

  • Monday!

    2/24/2020 6:45:28 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    Well I didn't blog yesterday, didn't get around to it or much else for that matter. Sundays are my bane! Food choices terrible, lazed around reading and watching TV, why? I guess I'm rewarding myself for a long week and good habits for the most part or, is it because I've added the extra half hour... Read more

  • Another day in the life of....me

    2/22/2020 7:19:08 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    Yesterday was not as bad as expected, up a pound, ounces of that clothing so all in all an okay weigh in...still need to drop 3 or 4 more lbs to be happy with myself. I can do it, especially if I can control the snacking which continues to be a problem. Had a good workout with Katie, she came ... Read more

  • Feeling low...

    2/21/2020 7:06:49 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    It's chilly here this morning so...no shorts for weigh in...and work out after WW so I need my gym clothes. I got on the scale and I am up! Really for no reason that I can think of, I wasn't perfect this week, but I wasn't that much off either. I wonder if it is because my thyroid medication was r... Read more

  • Flu long gone

    2/20/2020 9:11:48 PM, by PZOOKEY

    Well the Flu is long gone. Been plateaued again since returning to work 291.6 is still better than the 320 at Christmas but still a long way to go.... Read more

  • PRP decision day!

    2/20/2020 6:46:51 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    Finally have an appointment to review my MRI and decide on a course of treatment. Yeah! Lots of questions, like if I do nothing what will happen? Does it get worse? It's a tiny tear and it bothers me, but I can live with it. However, it is worse than a year ago...so, prognosis? We'll see. In... Read more

  • Hump Day!

    2/19/2020 7:00:05 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    Another day, more opportunities to stay off the sugar. I did stray a little yesterday with the light whipped cream. Obviously, that has become a problem I have to address to myself! Good workouts yesterday, not as tired as Monday. I have to complete paperwork for my doctor's appointment tomorrow... Read more

  • Court update

    2/18/2020 10:10:41 PM, by SENIMMO

    So, if you know me, you probably know I was attacked last April. Now I have PTSD from it. I've had to go to court at least once a month, sometimes 2 or 3 times a month. So, there was another hearing last Friday to hear testimony for his competence to stand trial. He says he is fine. The court ... Read more

  • It's already Tuesday!

    2/18/2020 6:43:12 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    Actually, yesterday was a very long day so I am happy to have it over. My Zone workout was very hard, I finished walking instead of running to keep my heart rate up....too much of the workout was in the high heart range and it was a little too much. Soooo, I slowed down and finished, not up to my ... Read more

  • New week, new challenges..

    2/17/2020 6:58:28 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    I don't believe I just erased my entire blog and have to start over. What a way to start the day, I can't even blame it on one of the cats! Okay, I repeat....had a good weekend. Survived the reception on Saturday with no sugar and no bad snacks! Win, win....also survived Sunday without the usua... Read more

  • It's Susan B. Anthony's 200 BD!

    2/15/2020 7:16:42 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    And, since it is Susan B's birthday I will be attending an event this afternoon celebrating her BD and the LWV 100 BD (which was yesterday). Menu.....heavy hors d'oeuvres. Okay, I am two days into a sugar purge. Yes, I made it thru the second day, feeling strong. I have a heavy workout this morn... Read more

  • Weigh In Day....

    2/14/2020 7:36:19 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    Day one into the sugar fast is over and was a success. Actually, it wasn't that hard, I just had to steer clear of the sugar free gum and anything else that could trigger the impulse to indulge. Today is weigh in at WW, the off to the gym for my 30 min workout with Katie to work on my core and bal... Read more

  • Note to self!!!

    2/13/2020 6:50:43 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    I decided to cut the sugars until the end of the month. That's 17 days, manageable. Not too dramatic, must put stickie notes in several places and remind myself on a regular basis. I'm not going to try a 30 day challenge, if or when I get through the next two weeks, I'll rethink my relationship w... Read more

  • Another Hump Day...

    2/12/2020 6:58:33 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    Today is a shopping day....I have to find something to wear to an event on Saturday afternoon. My closet consists of workout clothes (a lot of them) and jeans ( in all colors). Since I retired ten years ago, I don't have much else so....I decided to wear white jeans with some kind of nice top and s... Read more

  • Taco Tuesday...

    2/11/2020 6:53:08 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    I don't eat taco's, but it seems everyone else does. I don't care for tortillas so I eat the fillings and leave the tortillas. Now if I could only do that with other foods life would be some much easier. Naps are helping to keep the hand to mouth disease in the afternoon, but it is a work in prog... Read more

    2/9/2020 8:28:19 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    It's the second Sunday of the month and time for my group of women friends to get together. This has always been a bad day for me, too much snacking and not enough visiting and chatting. Today we are going to a nursing home where a good friend is staying recovering from a broken femur directly foll... Read more

  • Back to basics!

    2/8/2020 7:22:34 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    Weigh in not great yesterday, up 3 1/2 lbs! Okay, back to basics and practicing the good habits I have learned over the years. Especially, recognizing being tired, not hungry! Not much going on this week so it will be a bit tough. I will need to plan dinners, take naps and stay in the moment. Of... Read more

  • The flu is leaving

    2/7/2020 11:08:02 AM, by PZOOKEY

    Fever has finally broken. Chest congestion is easing. So many things to do but still supposed to be resting. I can't wait to get back to work on Monday. Only good thing about the Flu was the breaking of the 300 lb plateau. Stepped on the scale at 293 this morning. I am hoping that the scale keeps mo... Read more

  • TGIF!

    2/7/2020 7:30:24 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    I remember when that really meant something. Ain't being retired great! So, yesterday when I got home I changed and laid down and took a nap. I was tired! I did not eat, I recognized that I was tired, not hungry! Sometimes one can be really slow! Now that I have figured that out, maybe I can ge... Read more

  • Why?

    2/6/2020 6:53:19 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    I had a good day, until I got home around 3:00. The other had brought junk home and I went right for it and over indulged. Had a light, high protein dinner but that hardly overcomes the junk. Then, I fell asleep around 8:00pm. Got up several times, stayed awake for while a couple of times, but ... Read more

    2/5/2020 6:54:23 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    Off to the gym this morning for my Zone class.....then into the pool for a half mile walk with my friend, Mary. Then lunch with friends, a lovely salad with a gorgeous piece of grilled salmon. A couple of stops on the way home to get more steps in and then a little down time. A nice tuna salad ov... Read more

  • Warming Up...

    2/4/2020 5:09:35 PM, by BMEWWLOSER

    Today started off chilly as well as an early start to drop Zak (black cat) off at the vet to have a growth removed from his leg. Also had to look forward to a change on my gym commute due to the opening of a new overpass and change to my exit. Actually, both went very smoothly, picked Zak up this ... Read more

    2/3/2020 4:31:51 PM, by PZOOKEY

    Woke up this morning still with a fever. Called in sick to work and went to the doctor. Flu A is what the test said. I am home for the week.

  • Interesting!

    2/3/2020 6:50:52 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    I didn't blog for 2 days, how did I let that happen? I also noticed that I didn't do real great yesterday. Why I didn't blog on Saturday for some strange reason. What is going on? Time to reflect and get back on the "band wagon". Dumping all my busy thoughts down in writing has been good for me... Read more

  • Great Day!!

    2/2/2020 9:04:02 AM, by LOSINGTHEOLDME

    Had a great day yesterday (Saturday), I was able to spend some time with my mom. She's getting up in age 82 yrs young and although we live in the same city we don't live particularly close and I don't drive so I usually catch a ride with one of my sisters.. So anytime I can hang out with her is a... Read more

  • Still Maintaining!

    2/1/2020 7:02:58 AM, by BMEWWLOSER

    Yesterday weigh in was down the .4 I had gained last week. Yeah me. With a little luck, maybe I'll be down another .4 next week. I'm glad to be at a place in my journey that .4 is just fine, cause maintenance is hard and hoping to get down a couple more pounds is not critical, just a "would like ... Read more

  • Slight downward movement

    1/31/2020 2:56:37 PM, by PZOOKEY

    I wish I could say the plateau is over but I finally dropped under 300. Weighed in yesterday at 299.8 and this morning at 299.6. Not a huge drop and not really enough under 300 to call it a win but still movement after almost 3 weeks and in the right direction. Only a little over 10,000 steps today ... Read more

    I'm off to my weekly WW meeting and weekly weigh in...so, we will see what happens when I actually plan and cook dinner and try to be conscious of what I put in my mouth in between.
