Today I dug out the WATP 1 Mile DVD and actually did it. I had oatmeal for breakfast and logged it, and I updated my weight to 264. I've been just feeling worse and worse since 2009 started. I remember how well I felt when I was "Sparking on ... Read more
WATP 1 Mile - Yay me!

Yay! Today I actually did my 1 mile walk with Walk Away the Pounds. I really do like that workout. It's not too hard, and it gives me lots of energy. I've been trying to make myself do it again for months, and now I wonder why I waited so lo... Read more

Here is a quote from one of today's emails from Spark People. Imagine someone regularly tying small weights around your ankles as you try to climb a mountain. Doesn't sound fair, does it? But that's exactly what you can do to yourself, a ... Read more

I bought 5 pounds of shelled walnuts by mail order from a California farm called Haag Family Farm in Esparto. The information about Omega 3's is compelling to me, and this seemed like a good deal. The high fat thing is worrying, but we'll see ... Read more

Today I took the first of three tests I need to pass in order to become an Enrolled Agent of the IRS. Once I pass all three tests, I'll be able to practice and represent people in front of the IRS, hopefully working out their tax problems. I p... Read more
Relaxing Weekend?

This is a busy weekend for me. We had our town Holiday Parade last night. My son marched in it, so I did my duty of cheering and screaming like a fool - twice! Once on the way up, and again as they circled around. I believe that being embarr... Read more

I'm feeling a lot better today, and I get to take a shower, which is much needed. I have orange stuff all over my upper body that they paint on for the surgery. It's in my hair and everything. Also, I have glue from the tape all over me as we... Read more

So, I have a new pacemaker now, and I feel pretty good considering it's been less than 24 hours. I am not short of breath at all, so apparently this was part of my problem for the last months. I actually took a walk for 30 minutes last night. ... Read more
A Thanksgiving Setback

Yesterday I found out that my pacemaker has basically stopped working. I let it go too long between checkups, so the thing is close to dead. The Dr. wants to replace it on Friday. He was not too happy with me. Hopefully this will be a smooth ... Read more

I have 4 days left to get to 250-ville by Thanksgiving. So why did we get pizza last night? Why am I not walking every day? Well, today is a new day! Oatmeal for breakfast and a walk this evening. Those are my goals.... Read more

We are having a challenge in 260-ville. Our goal is to get to 250-ville by Thanksgiving. You would think I could exercise for 10 minutes a day, but unbelievably, I'm not doing it. With about 10 days to go, I'm working on motivation. Th... Read more

Two days ago was my one year anniversary with Spark People. I have lost 14.5 lbs in that time. I would like to have done better, but here we are. The secret to my success this year has been tracking my food. My slow process is due to... Read more

Today I have returned to Spark People and I feel so happy about that. I think of all my many priorities, and once again, my health came last. I am glad to say that I did NOT regain every last pound I lost last fall. I'm still down about... Read more

My son is in 9th Grade Health now, and he is learning nutrition this term. He told me we were not having enough fruit and vegetables. I explained what I’ve been doing to try to add them, and now he’s trying to add some as well. We both know t... Read more
