I continue to stay on track, except for the exercise, again :( Yesterday I planned to do my seated video on my lunch break, but for whatever reason, I was unable to play any video on my computer. Then by the time I got home yesterday and put... Read more

There is something so symmetrical when the first day of a month is a Monday. It makes the perfect day to start a blog series with a purpose and a countdown attached. So my story for this blog series is that on June 15 I am due to have hip ... Read more

So three weeks in, I'm doing okay. Why do I say that, I ask myself. Simply because I started this thing 3 weeks ago and though I have not been "perfect," I haven't forgotten it, and I have settled for a modest, reachable goal: just eat meals ... Read more

As usual, I have such a better report to make on a weekday than I ever would on a weekend. I just flounder on the structure-less days of the weekend, and do so much better during the week, when everything from waking up to going to bed is predi... Read more

It occurs to me that it looks like I am counting down to my 48th birthday, I wish! I have an appointment with an orthopedist on March 8, and the day I made that appointment was 48 days before, so I decided that I would do the best I could to ma... Read more

Well, I am happy to declare yesterday a success eating wise. I stayed on track, and did have a little bit of a whoopee pie after dinner at my mom's house, it was a controlled portion and I stayed well within my calorie limit even with that. Ba... Read more

So I'm a week into my newfound plan to get myself in good shape for my appointment with the surgeon for my hip replacement, and I cannot say that I've covered myself in glory. I have these wonderful days, eating well and keeping everything unde... Read more

So I ate pretty well yesterday and began to devise a plan in my head to try to add some amount of fitness. I am not going to be able to hit any aerobic machines, but hoping I can come up with a bit of a program to work specific areas, and even ... Read more

So I FINALLY got my appointment. Called and got an entirely different person today than the one I was able to speak with ever so briefly the other day, and on whose voicemail I have left too many messages that were never returned. Got my appoi... Read more

It's been a long time since I've blogged. Not really sure what I'm here to say, but I feel so restless, so sometimes you've just gotta grab the keyboard and see where it takes you. I have been in a rut for what seems like forever. It trul... Read more

So without doing any of the traditional "diet" thing, I have managed to have three very good days in a row making decent food choices and staying away from poor ones. This, in my opinion, is the optimal way to get this weight loss thing done. ... Read more

Day 1 of what? Don't know. I've been on a bit of a journey lately, lost about 20 lbs doing weight watchers and very much liking the program, trying my best to get to the gym as often as possible. I feel like I'm making progress, and truth be ... Read more

Anyone as old as I am might recognize those words from the song by the rock band Boston from back in the 80's. Great song, and not really on point with what's on my mind, but it HAS been a long time since I've bared my soul here on SP. Doesn't... Read more

So on the second day that I managed to get on my exercise bike for at least 10 minutes, I observed something quite interesting... I have been less and less nimble in my movement, even doing such things as walking down stairs or standing up afte... Read more
