I haven't had much to say lately. Not much has been going on. I'm working through some things, but nothing big is happening. I've been lonely lately. I've mostly been spending time with Lilo. She's such a sweet dog. I need to try and be mo... Read more
Better Days

Things are going better. I'm not eating as well as I'd like to be, but I'm doing better. I've been spending time with my son. I'm teaching him to drive, and that's going well. We watched the movie "Spaceballs." Although it's not my usual type of... Read more
My dog, my ex, my future
Thursday, August 15, 2019      13 comments

When my ex and I split, at first, I kept all three of our dogs, Lilo, Pepe, and Willow. When he was settled, he took Willow. Willow was supposed to be my dog, but she adored Chris, so it was right to let him have her. Approximately two week... Read more

Goodbye 30 pounds!
Monday, July 22, 2019      13 comments

Today's weigh-in brought the good news that I'm down 30 pounds. (Actually, 31.6 pounds, if I'm being precise.) I'm very happy about that. The small changes I've made are working. In the past, I've tried to change a lot of things at once, and tha... Read more

I put out a few bowls of water the other day in my front yard. I wanted the wildlife near me to have access to water. I generally don't fill my water bowls too full, because frogs and toads sometimes use them as a place to cool off. When I went ... Read more

Right now, I'm enjoying a little downtime. I'm watching a Hallmark Christmas movie. I've watched a few of them lately. They are fun and relaxing. My son and I watched all eight seasons of Game of Thrones in eleven days. Then we watched all of se... Read more

Sunday, July 07, 2019      9 comments

Today, I am so angry with myself. How did I ever let my life get this out of control? It's not just my weight. It's everything. I'm 308 pounds. My house is disgusting. I'm broke. I've been trying to fix all three things a little at a time. ... Read more
Focus of June

I’ve been on SparkPeople for many years. In those years, I’ve never lost weight and kept it off for any reasonable length of time. Why is that? Because I quit. I quit when things get difficult and when I get bored. Although I’ve been a SparkPeop... Read more

I decided to do a seated workout video tonight. I hadn't done anything like that in a while. Both of my dogs were curious. Pepe, my smaller dog just watched me and wagged his tail. Then he decided to sit where I was trying to do a leg lift. I li... Read more
Avoided a binge
Tuesday, May 28, 2019      14 comments

I struggle with binging. Recently, I had a bad binge in which I ended up consuming approximately 3500 calories in one day. I still lost weight for the week, because I ate much better the other days of the week. Still, it really bugs me to be tha... Read more

I just can't seem to get into an exercise routine. I want to change that. I need to change that. I still struggle with fatigue, but exercise may help that. I've got to push. Just 10 minutes. Just 10. Find the strength to do this. ... Read more
