Face the Music
Monday, March 14, 2016      1 comments

This morning, I decided to get on the scales and face the music. For the last few months, I just haven't been able to put 4 meals in a row together that follow my new life style. I moved the weight on the bar up over 250 and stepped on. The b... Read more
Do I need another new life style? Yikes!

Jan 12 last year, I began a new job. The atmosphere is very good, and I still believe they are a very nurturing group of people. Unfortunately, their brand of nurturing is sweets. I have learned that I don't need donuts every time they appear... Read more

You know how I have been struggling, and the inability to walk very well has contributed to pounds. And, all my nurse friends have been predicting that I need a hip replacement, and I should see the doctor. Well, today I did. I was resign... Read more
Words of wisdom from the grandson
Sunday, August 02, 2015      5 comments

I was in the middle of trying to clean up the kitchen. The drain has been slow for months, and I haven't had the energy with everything else going on to have the plumber come. I have a target date. But, that's not what I am writing about.... Read more
This year has been a disaster
Tuesday, July 21, 2015      3 comments

I just need to get down to brass tacks again. My ability to walk has been seriously messed up, and that means, I can't eat like I was eating while losing and walking. There I have said it.... Read more
Wait a minute – what happened along the way?
Monday, June 01, 2015      3 comments

My story is probably typical of the older person who managed to pack on the weight over the adult crazy years of raising children, my case only slightly different because I did two sequentially. I joined SparkPeople in 2008, I see that in l... Read more
Here it is, the end of May
Friday, May 29, 2015      5 comments

I have continued the struggle, week by week failing to turn things around. I'm up about 15 from where I was, and just need to spin out of this. I'm having trouble walking, lots of snapping and pain, and knees inflamed, so I joined up with ... Read more

My blood work came back pretty good. No more pre-diabetic. My blood pressure was also good. But, my cholesterol was lousy, way higher than before. She said my HDL was high, so that was good. I need to figure out how to lower the LDL! I... Read more
Words to remember
Friday, April 10, 2015      3 comments

Every day is a gift from God, that's why they call it the present. I heard that yesterday, meeting with a club of older women, and it really hit home with me. My life in the last four months has been 1 loss after another. 8 deaths. I'm h... Read more
I am out of control

The last few months have been better financially, but they are a disaster for my eat healthy program. I need to figure this out, and it is not just the eating part, I have lost my ability to take my 10 minute breaks walking through the tunnels.... Read more
There's nothing thin about Thin Mints
Sunday, February 15, 2015      8 comments

I hope I am at the tail end of a Thin Mint melt down. This started 11 months ago when I bought girl scout cookies and sent them to Ohio U, believing they would disappear. Well, a lot of them came home last spring, and they have been in the pan... Read more
Something's Not Right
Friday, January 30, 2015      4 comments

I know I'm not the only one that goes through spells when nothing I should eat sounds appealing. I've been that way all week. I've been eating Cuties (oranges) and Cherry Tomatoes like they were Fritos or Cheetos. I don't really want to h... Read more
End of week 3
Thursday, January 29, 2015      1 comments

It is hard to believe I am at the end of the third week at my new job. And, I think I'm going to like it. Biggest adjustment, they are so laid back. And, caring about each other. I fell down at the end of the icy cement steps this mornin... Read more
All the changes
Saturday, January 17, 2015      3 comments

Well, I made it through a lot of changes last week, and felt like my eating wasn't crisp. Taking the bus is working out OK. The weather is cold, but if you walk the half mile fast, you don't freeze, and you can count it for cardio. Th... Read more
