Operation “Deflab”
Monday, December 07, 2020      3 comments

I guess I could wait until January 1st to start, but to be honest, I realize that I could do a whole lot more damage by then! Plus, I just don’t feel good, my clothing is snug and I hate seeing pictures of myself right now. So it’s time. I’m ... Read more

Getting my head back in the game!
Wednesday, March 30, 2016      4 comments

I had been doing so well until last weekend. No Easter candy or anything like that, it's just that I've been grazing. Mainly at night. It's just been me, not wanting to follow any kind of structure. And that made the scales jump up to an all... Read more
Reasons for Regain
Sunday, March 13, 2016      4 comments

I recently read an article that someone wrote about 15 reasons she was able to lose 40 lbs. It made me think. A few years ago, I could have written an inspiring article on how I was able to lose over 70 lbs and keep it off for 8 years. But no... Read more
Stopping the cycle
Tuesday, March 08, 2016      3 comments

I'm embarrassed to admit that in the past year, I've struggled with NES (Night Eating Syndrome). Then to make up for my nightly "binges", I would do 3 to 5 hours of cardio, way too much on my 58 year old body. And it wasn't enough, either. Th... Read more

Tomorrow, I'm doing a THM fuel cycle week with my daughter. I'm hoping to do it for a total of 2 weeks, which is the amount of time recommended on the THM plan. The week consists of 3 days of Deep S - which is basically very low carb, high... Read more
Bad weekend
Monday, February 15, 2016      1 comments

My week had been going so well. I really have to sit back and figure out what's going on during the weekends that derails all my plans. I undo all the progress I make on those 3 little days. ... Read more
Feeling better so far.....

Since my daughters have been doing the Trim Healthy Mama plan, they look fantastic! So, I'm hopping on the THM wagon as well. I'm enjoying all the different foods and feeling pretty good. I'm staying off the scale until Sunday morning and pro... Read more
Insanity is doing the same thing over and expecting different results.....
Monday, February 08, 2016      1 comments

So, after over 10 years of being a Weight Watcher (and being a lifetime member for 8 years), I'm stepping out to try something different. It's a hard decision. WW has been good to me, helping me to shed over 70 lbs and become more aware of my ... Read more
Sixty Thousand Steps!

Believe it or not , that's what I challenged myself to walk with my fit bit last Tuesday . It amounts to approximately 8 hours of walking/running . That's 30 miles . The thing that surprised me the most was that I wasn... Read more
Staying the course....
Wednesday, April 15, 2015      0 comments

Been awhile I know. For one thing, I don't like reading what I write. It's kind of like listening to my voice on tape - doesn't sound a bit like I want it to. But since it's helpful for me, I'll try to be better about it. The good - I've... Read more
A little setback?
Friday, March 27, 2015      1 comments

This morning the scales have me up 2 lb.....even though I have stuck with my program faithfully. Disappointed? Yes, but it does happen. Most likely in a day or two the scales will go down 3 or 4 lbs. It happens. Weight fluctuates and the sc... Read more
Things I've learned this week....
Thursday, March 26, 2015      1 comments

1. My "competitive" nature is a flaw. It's ok not to be first (or second) on my dashboard. I have to do the right thing for me. And letting someone else ahead can be gracious. 2. I eat a lot standing up. I'm going through the Beck Diet solu... Read more
Day 3
Wednesday, March 25, 2015      1 comments

Yesterday I didn't do bad, but it didn't go quite as well. I got a little bit of a snack attack last night and while I was eating healthy (fruit, etc) I ended up about 150 calories over my calorie budget. Not a lot, but a habit I need to nip.... Read more
