I met with my special ed. director today and told her I had decided to stay in my current school and take the position with students with behavior disorders. I've received a lot of support while making this decision. I could wait a couple of mon... Read more

Spring break is coming to an end. We couldn't have asked for a better week to have off. It was in the high 70's and low 80's most of the week. I got food prepped for the week and spent a couple hours at school today getting organized. Hubby and ... Read more

Doing fairly well in the nutrition and exercise department. I've lost 10 lbs. since I "started over'. The scale has bumped up a little this week but that may be because I'm back into lifting weights. I'm not going to stress over it because my ea... Read more
Tough workout, but I did it

I had a great week on the nutrition front and a good week on the exercise front. The results, a 1 lb. gain. I'll be 53 in a couple days and the weight goes up and down instead of just down. I've never had this problem before. Frustrating, but I ... Read more

I started my morning meeting with my principal for my evaluation. It went really well. One of my students who has come so far this year reached one of his behavior goals and we can now drop it. What a big accomplishment for him! It was a gorg... Read more

I got a call from the Drs office today. They said I had a normal stress test which means there are no arteries where the flow is restricted. She also said the heart muscle is working well. For now I just need to continue to lose the weight and e... Read more
Test done, waiting on results

I had my stress test this afternoon. I haven't worked out consistently in a long while (up until 3 weeks ago) so I figured it would be tough. I had to get my heart rate to 150 which wasn't a big deal at all. They like you to go above that number... Read more
Stress Test Tomorrow

I think I was so stressed out from Monday's appt. that I misspoke here. I'm not in the 90th percentile to have a heart attack, but I'm that likely to have plaque. It still holds that there could be blockages up to 90%. The stress test tomorrow w... Read more

I was teary eyed this morning as I checked Spark and saw all the well wishes from my Spark friends. It reminds me how difficult it is to explain what this site is all about when people ask about it. Yes, it's a supportive community to help us lo... Read more
I feel like a ticking time bomb

The Dr. said I've gone from a 10th percentile to the 90th percentile as far as the chance of having a heart attack. Not good. I'm already on a lot of medications so that's not really an option. He said to lose the weight again, exercise consiste... Read more
Appointment tomorrow

It's been a good week nutrition wise and a pretty good week exercise wise. Once I got my calcium scoring test back, eating junk lost it's appeal. I'm building up the exercise because I've let myself get so out of shape. It will take some time, b... Read more

Some of you may know that my family has a history of heart disease. I've known for many years that I have high cholesterol and have been on many medications for it. I had it down to 180 a couple years ago when I was exercising regularly and drop... Read more

I wrote this list in August and did very little to achieve the things on the list. I've tweaked it a little, but most of it still holds true. Long Term Goals I am happy and grateful that I am 135 pounds I am happy and grateful that I... Read more

I've been listening to a podcast called "Inside Out Weight Loss". It talks a lot about how to change from the inside so you can keep the weight off for good. She suggest making New Year's Evolutions. Not a bad idea. I don't have them all ready t... Read more

Unfortunately it includes getting the flu 36 hrs. before the big day. I was feeling well enough Thurs. to try and eat a little which wasn't a great choice. We were at the in laws yesterday so it was another 1 small meal day. I'm slowly gaining b... Read more
