I've Been AWAL
Monday, May 30, 2016     

I've been AWAL (absent without authorized leave) for quite awhile. I started a new way of eating in November and did well through January. My weight loss center was upset that I had not lost any weight and told me to change my diet. Since then,... Read more
My Journey
Sunday, December 27, 2015     

My scales have moved up just a little. That's ok because people are complimenting me on how great I'm looking. My daughter shared pictures with me of our mini-vacation in September. I asked who was that in her pictures (the fatter version of m... Read more

New Way of Eating
Sunday, December 20, 2015     

So about 2 weeks ago I began a Ketogenic diet. The first three days were great! I lost several pounds. So I decided to continue on. You know what happened...I stalled! I had symptoms of Keto flu, which are gone, but don't think I'm in ketosis ... Read more
New Way of Eating
Tuesday, December 08, 2015     

Yesterday I began a Ketogenic diet. My nutritionist cautioned me about eating too much fat because of cholesterol. My cardiologist gave me the go ahead. Seems all of this is time consuming and difficult to get exact. Is anyone else on this diet... Read more

Whew! !
Wednesday, September 23, 2015     

I had a weigh in this morning. I lost 5.5 pounds in 5 weeks! I am so suprised because I have had multiple mini-vacations this summer. On each trip I tried to eat healthy, but let's face it, vacation food is great! I was able to step up my a... Read more
Another Day

Glad Summer Vacations are Over!
Sunday, September 13, 2015     

I have learned that it is very difficult to lose weight while on vacation. I did my best to eat right, but sometimes I ate the wrong foods and overate. I was proactive in the exercise department with walking and swimming. I gained 5 pounds ba... Read more
Feeling Bad
Saturday, August 29, 2015     

Feeling under the weather today. Two others in my home are sick; guess it's contagious. I have a weakened immune system so this is not good. I'm traveling Friday so I hope to be better by then.... Read more

Even when you are only slightly competitive, it's no fun when you spin the wheel and get zero points. ... Read more
Summer HAS To End!
Wednesday, August 19, 2015     

I'm having a great summer as compared to most. I have been on two "mini-vacations" and have one more planned with my daughter. The only problem is, when I go away from home, I eat differently. We eat out constantly. It's difficult to alwa... Read more
Another Weekend Away From Home
Thursday, August 13, 2015     

This weekend I'm traveling to Baltimore to see my daughter and son-in-law. We will be out and about sightseeing. This means we will be eating out all weekend. I just need to be mindful of my weight loss journey and not eat crazy! I need some ... Read more
