Diane, Today is over. Whatever choices you made are also over. It doesn’t really matter why you made them. You had your reasons. There is no need to beat yourself up over them. Remember we are going for progress not perfection. Wh... Read more

A Rough Day
Saturday, January 28, 2017      3 comments

I'm having a rough day. I need to say that. Because that is what this is. I need to make sure I understand that that is ALL this is. It is NOT an attempt at self sabotage. I am NOT quitting. I am NOT giving up. It is just a day where I hav... Read more

So I've been back on the Weight Watchers program for 10 weeks now and I've lost 17.8 pounds. Rather painlessly I might add, most of them in the period between Thanksgiving and New Years. That's real success. And really this is the kind ... Read more
Hello to the Back of My Closet
Monday, June 13, 2016      4 comments

I suspect we are all much the same on this point...in the back of my closet, bottom of my drawers or in a storage tub under the bed...I've saved clothes that long ago stopped fitting me. I used to have both too big and too small clothes there. ... Read more

Tuesday, June 07, 2016      5 comments

I've blogged on these topics before. This is a lesson that I have to keep reinforcing for myself. I'll get it and then lose it and then every once in a while the lightbulb goes off again. Today I am having one of those lightbulb moments. ... Read more
The Power of Gradual
Tuesday, May 24, 2016      9 comments

I weigh over 200 pounds. I didn't see that coming. Growing up I saw my mother and my aunts carrying around so much excess weight and remember very clearly saying "that will not be me". I didn't intend to become obese. I did notice myself be... Read more
Another bump in the road
Tuesday, April 26, 2016      3 comments

Its been about a month since I last blogged. I've been rolling along just fine, feeling pretty good, finding it easy to stick to my plans and goals. But today I've hit another one of those bumps in the road. Coincidentally about a month from ... Read more
First bump on this leg of the journey
Monday, March 28, 2016      10 comments

Well, here it is ... it came today. Actually I think I hit the side of this bump on Friday. My weight went up instead of down for no reason that I am aware of. Had been cruising along eating and exercising better than I have for some time and... Read more
Why this time will be different
Wednesday, March 23, 2016      5 comments

Most of us have started the weight loss journey a time or two before. We start out with high intentions only to come up short along the way and throw in the towel. Then we start again, but its ends in the same cycle. I know I've repeated this... Read more
I'm OK With That...In Fact I Feel Pretty Good About It
Tuesday, March 15, 2016      3 comments

My nutrition graph is not looking so perfect tonight. I've ended the day a bit high on the calorie count and well above my fat target. I kind of knew going into the day it was going to end that way. I could have made different choices a coupl... Read more
A blog about nothing
Monday, March 07, 2016      1 comments

I've not written in a few days. I can't seem to call up anything that I want to write about. But I find when I blog I'm much more motivated to keep up the good work. So, here I am blogging about nothing tonight I think. Just got done 20 ... Read more

Good morning! Just got done a 20 minute walking cycle to start off my day. I had intended to just get 10 minutes of exercise in and was enjoying it so much I stretched it to 20. These are the things that you forget about on your down slides -... Read more
Making An Adjustment
Monday, February 22, 2016      2 comments

I am determined NOT to lose the momentum that I am building up right now! I AM. I AM. In the past I've let myself backslide way too long and way too far -- to the point of almost eliminating all my hard efforts. Today it occurs to me tha... Read more
Building Good Habits
Wednesday, February 17, 2016      1 comments

I wanted to capture my thoughts about this tonight. The other day I had myself in a bit of a funk. I was thinking about this notion of how I really needed to change my habits to be successful at my weight loss/fitness goals. And I was frustrat... Read more
