It's been a little while since I have "blogged" my observations, about my life, my journey, my weight loss goals. To be honest, I have not been doing well with the weight loss effort. I had nearly given up. But I am back at it again. To make... Read more
New Beginnings

I need to restart. Sad truth is that I have lost some hard-earned ground. I sailed through Thanksgiving and Christmas of 2008 with barely an extra calorie. Then a combination of things happened, I lost focus, and before I knew it...eight poun... Read more

This photo was taken several months ago, but I thought I would try to add a "Blog Entry Image" to see how that works. I love SparkPeople. Where would I be without this site? It gives me a sense of structure, accomplishment and direction.... Read more

What I'm learning is that when I get bored or discouraged with this "lifestyle transition" (a.k.a. diet), I just need to begin again. I try to focus on my successes so far: down 12 lbs., making better food choices, starting to move more, starti... Read more

Okay, "Energy" is my new theme! If I don't decide to make myself do, and move, and be...no one is going to do it for me. I want to get stuff done! I want to have a sense of pride and accomplishment! Thanks to many people here at SP, ... Read more

Now I Know

Okay. I think I have figured it out. The answer to why I have gained five pounds since two weeks ago and why I have only lost three pounds since three months ago. One, I told myself "Don't be too drastic! If you lose it too quick, it w... Read more

True Confession
Wednesday, September 17, 2008      3 comments

I have to confess, I think this is my first official "Blog" ever. I have replied to other people's blogs, but never composed my own. For one thing, I struggle with perfectionism. I used to not even admit that because it seemed like "oh, poo... Read more
