It's ok to never have them again
Friday, July 25, 2014      2 comments

Last night I ran to the store to pick up some fruit for today. I was hungry as I stood there and needed to run a couple more errands before dinner. As I stood in line I looked over at the chocolate bars. Six months ago I would have grabbed on... Read more
Pineapple and thunderstorms
Wednesday, July 23, 2014      2 comments

This morning my husband said words to me that shocked me so much I could barely respond. "Mind if I take the last of the pineapple today? I'm outta salad too, can we pick some up?" This was followed by letting me know that he feels... Read more
Getting smaller, getting more upbeat
Tuesday, July 22, 2014      4 comments

I notice with the weight loss I'm more open minded and happier. I have little interest in focusing on negative feelings unless it's how to change a situation to make it better. I never expected this change but it's a cool benefit. I als... Read more
Down 61 pounds!
Monday, July 21, 2014      8 comments

WOO HOO!!!!!! The heatwave we were having broke which meant that my thyroid snapped back into normal mode. Not only did my plateau break but I lost 3 pounds in 3 days. That part I wasn't expecting! I knew I had stayed true to my habits a... Read more
Not my place to add my opinion but man, if it was!

Yesterday I saw pictures of a friend on FB. She was out with her toddler and a friend and posted picture after picture of the little girl eating a crazy amount of food. It broke my heart to see the huge plate of pasta she was given and then a... Read more
Bracing for summer
Tuesday, July 15, 2014      3 comments

When the heat soars my thyroid goes along with it. It's not a huge deal, happens for about 4 weeks during the summer and I know it's going to happen. To me it's really not that much different than TOM. It's not like I wake up one day and say ... Read more
But a hike would be so nice tonight
Thursday, July 10, 2014      0 comments

It's summer, that being said it's not a stretch to say it's hot outside. Going with that summation and knowing my husband's aversion to hot weather I knew a hike last night was going to need a bit of coaxing. I suggested a hike and looke... Read more
That's right, we lapped him!
Wednesday, July 09, 2014      3 comments

My husband and I had gotten away from hiking for a few days. Not that we didn't want to go, just seemed to be not enough hours in the day. Last night we headed out for a short jaunt up the hill. I'm always nervous when we skip a few days that... Read more
Doing it for me
Monday, July 07, 2014      1 comments

I think those can be the hardest words for us to say. We're brought up to think of others first, never be selfish but when it comes to weight loss it's all about me. I can say I'm losing it for my kids and husband so I can do more with ... Read more
This is what I call support!
Sunday, July 06, 2014      4 comments

I love the support I get from my husband but now I'm noticing the support I'm getting from my kids just as motivating. My oldest daughter constantly gets me out of the house to walk around town looking for garage sales on the weekends. we tak... Read more

As I got dressed I put on my size 16 jeans and it just felt wrong. I am not a size 16, I was a size 16 once but I was 50 pounds lighter than I am now. The jeans fit fine, they look good and they aren't the least bit tight but when did the fas... Read more
I can see the goal line from here
Wednesday, July 02, 2014      1 comments

I sat today looking at my weight tracker. Do you do that? I love seeing how far it has traveled as it inches towards the goal. I know that eventually I want to adjust my end goal another 20 pounds down but for now 185 is realistic. My m... Read more
It's all good

This weekend I wanted to do one our our challenging hikes but it was raining. I had finally convinced my husband that we could go anyway, we'd be in the forest protected by the trees and it wasn't really raining that hard. We looked out the w... Read more
Feeling average
Friday, June 27, 2014      4 comments

Last night I went to see my daughter's presentation at culinary school. I got dressed and looked in the mirror. For the first time in years I felt...average. I didn't think how huge I am, I wasn't horrified that I didn't have a long sweater o... Read more
Healthy eating and laughing
Monday, June 23, 2014      2 comments

One of the things I've noticed lately is that I'm laughing more. I don't take things so personal and let things slide. For me, healthy eating brings a healthier attitude towards life. This weekend was busy, a good busy. Between yard wor... Read more
