I am finally getting my spark back - I set new fast break goals and I am eager to go. I am almost ready to face the scale and not let it depress me. My right leg has been increasingly painful and is limiting my ability to move. I went to a Chi... Read more

My strategy of facing the scale after practicing my plan for part of the week paid off. I dragged it out today full of dread. I expected to see a gain and prepared myself to see 215. I was so surprised when the number was actually 205.4. I am ab... Read more

Not sure why but I really avoid writing - even made journaling a fast break goal but I still avoid it. I have a habit of letting the squirrelly thoughts run in circles in my head. The past year I made great progress. I now avoid the gallo... Read more

I've been largely absent from this site in the past 2 weeks. We survived Ike and have power and our grocery stores no longer have lines to get in. I hosted my friend's family here last week until they got power on Friday. My partner's busines... Read more

I missed my regular weigh in yesterday because of the negative thoughts I was stuck in - feeling "fat" and out of control. Today was time for my annual physical with the GP and blood work. I decided to weigh before I left so I wouldn't be s... Read more

Monday's weigh in showed me at 3.6 pounds below the mark that the scale kept bouncing up to over the past month. Yipeee! I hope this bodes a return to progress. I am going to write my insurance agent to see if he can do something with the new nu... Read more
