I Couldn't Buy Them....
Thursday, January 17, 2013      10 comments

I went shopping for some jeans last weekend and ever since then I've been trying to figure out something. I have a friend who has been after me to and I quote her "You need to stop wearing such baggy jeans! They look terrible on you!" Really, s... Read more
Anorexic? Are you kidding me?

I was working this morning and a friend I hadn't seen in a long time came in, looked me up and down and said "Wow! You're so skinny!" and went on and on from there. I told her thank you and said "Yeah, I've been working at it really hard and hav... Read more

Okay, cut me some slack on these photos. I have to admit I'm terrified about posting a photo of myself to start with. And.....I'm wearing insulated snowboarding pants that fit ... Read more

We were able to go snowshoeing three times recently. Once with all the kids on Christmas Eve, which was so much fun. My sons girlfriend had a "photo shoot" featuring my son and I on the trail. I found out later it was part of my Christmas gift, ... Read more
Three things. And one more.

With my last weigh in, three things were accomplished that I've had my sights on for a long time. 1) I weigh less than my husband. He's tall, fit, and wonderful. 2) I weigh less than my drivers license says I do. Okay, to be totally ... Read more

My last blog was expressing my frustration about not losing anything in a month. I weighed Thursday, Thanksgiving day (yes, it was by design to weigh BEFORE dinner was served--and Thursday is my usual weigh in day, nothing tricky going on here!)... Read more

It was my weekly weigh in day today. In four weeks that needle has not moved. While I'm thankful it hasn't moved up, I've been working so hard and really want to see it going down again. I've upped my workouts, adding an additional 20 minutes o... Read more
Is this Gross or am I too "sensitive"?

The first two times I "thought" I saw this I was pretty grossed out, but I wasn't sure I was seeing what I thought I was seeing. There's a guy at the rec center who is a runner. He has gotten on the treadmill next to me a few times and as he's... Read more
Sunshine and cattails
Saturday, October 20, 2012      5 comments

There is a row of cattails growing along the northern bank of the canal where I took our sons dog for a walk this morning. We (sons dog and I) got to the canal just as the sun rose. The cattails were bursting open and little bits of fluff were ... Read more

I'm not good at waiting, I never have been. I'm sitting here at home while a contractor tries to fix the leak in the back door they installed earlier in the spring. This is the fourth trip trying to get this resolved. This makes me think abo... Read more
60 pounds
Thursday, September 27, 2012      15 comments

I weighed today, I am down another pound. This makes 60 pounds lost since I started this journey three years ago. I joined SparkPeople in August because I'd been stalled out for about a year (okay, maybe longer). The encouragement and helpful t... Read more

I've been going to the local rec center for 2 1/2 or 3 years now and while I've always felt intimidated, I never felt like I shouldn't be there. That is until today. I did my cardio first, then headed into the weight room to use the weight mach... Read more

We're leaving on vacation Friday morning. While I'm really looking forward to getting away, I'm concerned about how to handle my eating and how in the world am I going to be able to get my exercise in while traveling? I'll try and be careful of ... Read more
