Plateau -- Zero again.
Friday, September 04, 2009      2 comments

I weighed-in this morning and there is no movement on the scale. Very frustraing so I waited for my Doctor and spoke to him for a few minutes. I explained my situation and he told me something that made a lot of sense to me. Stress, he ... Read more

I'm hoping this is a quiet, uneventful week! We really need it. The last 4 or 5 weeks have been a rollercoaster. I'm still doing some Fall Cleaning -- getting things together to take to the thrift store, off to the dump, or just put back ... Read more

Status Quo -- no loss, no gain. I've got to find a way to shake things up and get that scale moving downward again. Trying to figure out the things I'm doing / not doing right. I KNOW that I'm not moving enough these past few weeks. ... Read more
Facing the scales...
Friday, August 28, 2009      6 comments

I go for a weigh-in this morning. Something tells me that I won't be progressing. This time it's Mother Nature's turn to decide my fate. But that's okay. Better a plateau than a gain and I've really watched my food / sodium intake this w... Read more
***0*** The scale isn't moving...
Tuesday, August 25, 2009      4 comments

Another *0* at weigh-in. The scales aren't moving for me right now. I've been under a lot of stress with my Mother -- but that situation is ironed out and I'm beginning to relax. I think my sodium level has been too high the past few weeks... Read more
Moving Forward! Stage 4 -- WooHoo!
Thursday, August 20, 2009      9 comments

I moved into Stage 4 here at Spark People today! I have learned so much in the 18 weeks I've been a member. I won't allow myself to ever go back to the 298 pound woman that I was such a short time ago. It's been eight months and I've lost ... Read more
I can eat ANYTHING. I choose NOT to do that.
Wednesday, August 19, 2009      10 comments

Several times recently, I've had people ask me (or oddly enough, they ask Mike or Morgan as if my weight means I'm deaf), "Can you have that?" Well... yeah. I CAN have that... whatever it is. I simply choose NOT to have the cake, the ice ... Read more
Surveying... Out in the Field!

I went Surveying with Mike today -- we did a "Finished Floor" and a FEMA Survey, Well, HE surveyed. I held the rod. Tomorrow, we'll be down in Hinesville. All day. He's teaching me to "run the gun" (the Survey Instrument). There is a... Read more
Returning to "normal"?
Sunday, August 16, 2009      2 comments

Today was a good day. I felt more like myself than I have in three weeks. It felt good, too. I stayed well within my calorie / sodium / fat ranges... didn't over-eat, didn't indulge, didn't crave anything. I did realize today that... Read more
A bit down right now
Saturday, August 15, 2009      5 comments

I admit it. I'm really feeling quite down right now. I've just lived thru two and a half weeks of stress, strife, and drama with my Mom. The issues are over and done. She's moved into a place of her own and our lives have settled down... Read more
Update on Adam!
Friday, August 14, 2009      6 comments

He's doing so much better. Apparently, he shocked the Doctors and Nurses yesterday and walked on his own a bit. Now, it looks like he may get to go home and do his PT on an outpatient basis. Thank you all so much for your Prayers! The Lor... Read more

Tuesday, August 11, 2009      14 comments

At least, I've broken a couple of toes on my left foot. Dropped a heavy glass lid on them. Why wasn't I wearing my sneakers??? No clue... just decided to go barefoot this evening. So much for getting my walking in tonight. I don't know h... Read more
When *ZERO* is a good thing!
Friday, August 07, 2009      8 comments

I lost... zero pounds this week. I gained... zero pounds this week. Status quo. I can live with that. I weighed in this morning and whined a bit to my Doctor. He told me that stress has such an influence on how / what / when... Read more
Am I back on track?
Thursday, August 06, 2009      6 comments

It's been quite a ride since the end of July. I'm fairly certain that my time off of the computer, away from SP, and the events on the homefront got me way off track. I am not looking forward to tomorrow's weigh-in. I know that I do... Read more
