Diabetic Foot Ulcers
Wednesday, September 18, 2019      8 comments

Both of my parents are diabetic; as am I. My mom recently lost three toes due to gangrene. About a month ago, I started having pain in my foot, I ignored it. I thought “well it’s a stone bruise and I’ve stepped on a pebble or something and it’s ... Read more

I try not to write my health blog from the stand point of faith. Not that they don't have anything to do with one another, they do; however, I feel like this blog is about physical health. Today is going to be different. I don't expect a 1000 li... Read more
Happiness isn't a number on the scale
Sunday, August 25, 2019      4 comments

We have all thought about getting healthy. If I lose 10 pounds, I’ll be happy, if I lose 100 pounds I’d be happy… Happiness isn’t tied to weight, and it shouldn’t be either. Happiness is tied to how we feel about ourselves. For me, happines... Read more

I don't typically blog about my past or the mistakes I have made. My story is my own and my history belongs there--in the past. However, today something happened that made me think that some people, no matter how good you are, still hold that pa... Read more

Tonight I did something I vowed I would never, ever in my life do…again. I joined a weight loss program! Okay, so not a program like Weight Watchers (Been there, done that, still have the point counter!), or Nutrisystem, but rather a program tha... Read more
Weight Loss is a Journey
Sunday, August 18, 2019      2 comments

Weight loss is a journey, it's a challenge, but it is definitely not a competition; at least not in the way the word competition is being used here. I started my weight loss journey in 2010, I had finished college, traveled to Ireland, dec... Read more
Anyone working Optavia?
Saturday, August 17, 2019      6 comments

Recently I hit a plateau on my weight loss journey. Hitting the plateau has really discouraged me, but what has discouraged me more is the pettiness of friends who offered to help me along the way.  I never preach diet, diet, diet. I always... Read more
Negativity Not Needed
Thursday, June 20, 2019      6 comments

We all came here with one goal, to encourage and be encouraged in our weight loss journey. I often post a quote or a picture of where I am on my weight loss journey. Today was no different. Having spent time in the gym today, I earned a Mallo Cu... Read more

Hey Everyone! So as many of you know I come here off and on. I'll be here for a while, writing up a storm and then I drop off, then I come back and then I leave. This time, however, I am pushing myself to stay involved with SparkPeople. I try to... Read more

It's been years since I have written about being on a budget and trying to balance life; from work to paying bills to finding time for fitness and healthy eating. Recently I was diagnosed with fatty liver and significantly high liver enzym... Read more

Today is the first day of my diet start over! I know, I know, its National Donut Day! However, that is what I love about diets; no matter how many times you fail...you can start over! But this time, I am not looking for a diet to change me--Rath... Read more
"No Lunk Zone"
Sunday, February 07, 2016      0 comments

Normally I wouldn't endorse one fitness club over another, but I have to do so this time. As a member of the local YMCA, I used to attend daily and work out, with 30 minute time limits on machines; and 2 sets of 15 reps on the weights. Not to me... Read more

Friday, February 05, 2016      2 comments

Happy 2016! I know I haven't been around for a while, truth is, I kind of fell off the band wagon. Okay, football season happened! However, I am back at my diet! Last year, I realized two of my goals for weight loss, and honestly I couldn't feel... Read more
