So, for several months, I have been working with a personal trainer. I LOVE it. I have gained so much! My balance is better than it has ever been. My strength is regained enough that I can work outdoors in the yard after a winter off without... Read more
Have to go to the Gym?
Thursday, December 19, 2013      4 comments

Do you have to go to the gym again today? How do you answer that question? When I ask myself, I answer "Yes, I get to go to the gym again today." So, when my loved one asks me if I have to go again today, I answered the same. So, why d... Read more

Everything that I fail at is certainly due to my weakness. I struggle with extreme hunger and cheat too often with non nutritive fatty treats. I am weak and I admit that. Yet when I succeed, I know that someone higher loves me enough to... Read more
Hard Choices

I did a bit better on my calorie intake today. How? Why? What can I do? "Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple." - Dr. Seuss One day at a time. Because it is best. Take care of what you have.... Read more

When things get you down. Look up. You can be what you want to be. I am on my way to what I want to be. No exercise, it was my day off. I haven't lost weight yet... Read more

Two days ago I was listening to an audio book titled "Wishes Fulfilled." I can't say that I believed everything he said in the book, but a couple of things rang true: Whe... Read more

Age slowly makes its presence known upon all of us a little at a time. It speeds up a bit in my life when I go back to sitting in a chair 8 hours a day or more. I am stiff when I try to stand up and I have to stand up carefully so I don'... Read more
Worthy of Respect?

It is true. I am so afraid of failure that I don't allow myself to succeed. I am so afraid of success because I always feel like a failure. It is true that I lost 55 pounds, and after 2 years put more than half of it back. Did you ... Read more
Letter of Encouragement
Saturday, August 17, 2013      4 comments

Dear Self, It is too bad that you feel discouraged about weight loss. When you say that you aren't sure you want to live to care for the man that won't admit his need to participate in weight loss efforts, you do realize that you are being... Read more
My goals and tough questions
Thursday, August 15, 2013      4 comments

I think everybody, at some time or other, thinks about their weight at how it affects them. My husband, for example weighs well over 340 pounds. He refuses to take influence from me to lose the weight and insists that he is "big boned" insinua... Read more
Don't judge me.

We do not judge the people we love. Jean-Paul Sartre If I were looking at my Spark tracking only and was clueless as to what I was doing instead, I would think that I were giving up or too busy or other goals were higher priority than we... Read more

Today I mowed the lawn in the morning and then tonight I ran 5 miles. Or I should say walk/jogged 5 miles. I felt stronger and I thought I was faster than I was... which means that I felt good. And my pants fit... OH yeah! If ... Read more
Remain positive

My goal for today was to (regardless of how many goals I didn't keep) be proud of myself for what I did do. 1. I ate my pre-portioned lunch without complaint. 2. I went carb-free for dinner. 3. I ate 2 servings of fruit today and 4 serv... Read more

What a nice day it has been. We rested today and I was able to do some work on organizing my pictures into a digital photo album. I have a lot more to go, but I made quite a bit of progress. I like having days that I can just focus on myself.... Read more
Two months later
Saturday, July 06, 2013      1 comments

It's been two months since I wrote my last blog entry. I have been busy and I am pleased with the changes I am seeing. For example, when I last mowed the lawn, I didn't even have to stop to rest and did an additional hour of yard work af... Read more
