OK, I did it and I am so pleased. I had my first lunch out. I was able to choose the restaurant . I chose Ruby Tuesday's because I knew I could get something more healthy there. I am not very adventurous when ordering but today I ordered som... Read more

Day 10--A Scout Dinner
Saturday, April 27, 2013      1 comments

I knew I had a dinner to go to tonight so I kept my calories low, but balanced. At the dinner I had noodles-----and I made sure that I didn't have too much. I topped half of it with marinara sauce and the other part with a meat sauce. I kne... Read more
Day 9--A Temptation Thwarted
Friday, April 26, 2013      1 comments

I volunteer at a Family History Center two times a month. On the desk is a clear, glass jar filled with candies. For quite a while now it has posed as a challenging temptation. I am happy to report that I did not take one piece. I also packe... Read more
Day 8
Thursday, April 25, 2013      2 comments

I stayed within my calorie limits again. Woo hoo! I lost 7.4 pounds. Wish that could happen each week---but I know that's not realistic. I am hoping for a weekly loss of one pound. My cardio is certainly not where I would like it to be--b... Read more
Day 7
Wednesday, April 24, 2013      1 comments

Another day of success. I stayed within my calorie limits. I even went to the store and was not even tempted to stray. I have often been known to buy candy bars, a cake slice, ice cream, or more and I usually consumed most of it on the short... Read more
Day 6--A great Day
Tuesday, April 23, 2013      3 comments

This is going to be quick because it's late here for me. I took a friend out to lunch and was absolutely virtuous. I checked the restaurant's web page for nutritional information before I left. I chose well. I had a little snack later and t... Read more

We normally go out to dinner for our anniversary but I decided to cook dinner instead. I enjoyed Chicken Cordon Bleu, asparagus, a salad, and a fruit bowl. It was great and I stayed within my calories. Yay! I also went to physical therapy in... Read more
Day 4---Surprise, Surprise
Sunday, April 21, 2013      1 comments

I think I just erased my most recent post. I will try again. I didn't sleep well last night and got up very late and had a late breakfast. I did my physical therapy exercises, got showered and dressed, and then off to a meeting. The meeting ... Read more
Day 3--night time
Saturday, April 20, 2013      0 comments

Well, this blog accountability is helpful. I did go to the movie and didn't eat anything though the grandchildren had popcorn, soda, etc. Afterwards we went to dinner. I had suggested a place where I knew I could get a good salad--but the wai... Read more
Day 3--Early

I'm a charter and grapher by nature. My follow-through is not always the best but I love to organize myself so that I can track my goals. I just refreshed some charts and graphs for this start of weight loss. I am starting with a 40.2 loss fro... Read more
Days 1 and 2

My goal on Thursday was to eat only nutritional foods and drink more water. I was successful! That was enough to motivate me to get back to the good habits I had formed before. Today I not only ate nutritiously and drank water I also wrote ev... Read more
Another Start
Thursday, April 18, 2013      3 comments

I'm still learning. Somehow after my last blog I got way off track. I continued living life with no limits and eventually the abuse landed me with many pounds of unwanted fat back on my body. I can scarcely believe this myself. I was in such... Read more
Continued Healing

I can now drive and have started to get back into my normal life a bit more. I can go up and down my stairs one foot at a time. Huge accomplishment. Perhaps this "life lesson" will help me remember that very small, incrimental changes are suc... Read more
Knee Replacement Surprise
Thursday, September 20, 2012      3 comments

Knee replacemnt for me has been hard. OK, I mean REALLY HARD AND PAINFUL. It has been the toughest recuperation yet! Normally, when I get bored, am homebound for a period of time, I resort to soothing myself with junk food. If I don't have j... Read more
