Why do I say I want to lose weight?
Saturday, February 17, 2018      4 comments

Everyone always says "I want to lose weight", including me. Today in the sparkcoach video it asked me to write in my blog what my motivation was...WHY I wanted to lose weight. My first thought is to have more energy, but that's not a complete an... Read more
Weird happenings while ordering lunch
Monday, January 11, 2016      13 comments

All last week I ordered salads for lunch from McD. They have a pretty good southwest salad with grilled chicken. Well, today I decided to go back to my old standard of the fish sandwich and large fries. I even counted up the calories and with my... Read more

I'm not really superstitious, but I'm almost afraid to write a blog about being on day 10 of abstinence from compulsive overeating. I've stayed under my top calorie range nine days and plan on it today. I do not know what set me off to start aga... Read more

Self-Discipline day 2
Thursday, July 17, 2014      3 comments

Thanks for the advice on self-discipline in my last blog. I have heard to try small attainable goals and I have tried that, and then totally forget that I even have a goal. Maybe I need big signs around my house. Hmmm...I could clear the magnets... Read more
How to develop self-discipline?
Wednesday, July 16, 2014      5 comments

I don't have any. Well, I have some in some things. I manage to go to work and brush my teeth and take a shower...that's about it. I do not consistently do much else. I can manage to meditate here and there, but I want to do it every day. I hav... Read more
Kentucky is beautiful
Tuesday, June 10, 2014      3 comments

I just got back from a trip to the Lexington, Kentucky area. Put almost 2000 miles on my motorcycle and saw some absolutely beautiful country. I live in an area that is completely flat so it was nice riding in the hills and seeing all the horse ... Read more
It's time for gratitude - job, sparkpeople, recognizing
Friday, May 23, 2014      5 comments

I need to consciously be grateful. I tried writing gratitude blogs once and it didn't last long. For whatever reason I sometimes just do not remember to be grateful, and that was before I started getting older! I am grateful I have a job,... Read more
I'm grateful for a new beginning each day
Thursday, May 22, 2014      6 comments

Overate last night and knew I probably would. Haven't figured out how to visit these friends without overeating. They always have bags of different chips set out where we sit and we also had pizza, which is my nemesis (one of them). BUT, I went ... Read more
I'm not angry at my mother anymore
Wednesday, May 21, 2014      4 comments

Wow, I went on my blog page for the first time since I wrote that last blog and the title sure jumped out at me. I am very grateful for having my mother in my life and hope I've learned what I was supposed to learn from the experience. She's in ... Read more
I'm angry at my mother
Tuesday, September 03, 2013      6 comments

I actually got out of bed to write this blog. I laid in bed, tried to sleep, and for some reason came to the full realization that I am angry at my mother. It's been rising to my consciousness for a while. I've been basically living with her for... Read more
My mother
Monday, December 03, 2012      8 comments

My mother fell (we guess) and broke her hip July 27th and my life changed. I started taking care of her and stopped taking care of me. I even started playing solitaire spider on my computer at work within days of her fall. I haven't done that so... Read more

I need to read my sparkpage more often to remind myself that gratitude is (supposed to be) my attitude. Two days ago I hurt myself overeating and yesterday I had a day of abstinence and staying within my calorie range. It's almost like I HAD to ... Read more
I ate an apple today
Thursday, July 19, 2012      9 comments

I am eating an apple for my morning snack at work today. That may not seem like a very big deal, but for me it is. I so totally overate last night when I got home from work that I don't even know what to think. And I knew I was meeting my dh and... Read more
Today I am ready to begin....
Tuesday, April 03, 2012      12 comments

I love that positive feeling of I can do this, that knowing it is possible to be abstinent when it concerns food. Yesterday was what I call an abstinent day...DAY ONE. I stayed within my sparkpeople calorie range (something I haven't managed in ... Read more
