Oh my! I'm addicted to sugar!
Wednesday, September 30, 2015      5 comments

I'm loving being back on the right path! It's been 7 weeks now, and I'm down 32 pounds. I'm in the baby steps of learning to move more. And I love how a healthy eating plan makes me feel. That being said, I had a giant slip-up on Sunday th... Read more
My Ironclad Promise to Me
Saturday, August 09, 2014      3 comments

So I’ve now come to understand that while I break my neck to keep promises I make to other people, keeping promises to myself hasn’t been a priority. I REALLY have to make myself my priority if I’m going to achieve real, permanent transformatio... Read more
Why do I break promises to myself?
Wednesday, August 06, 2014      2 comments

Today my assignment is to see if I can figure out why I constantly break the promises I make to myself. I bend over backwards to keep promises I make to other people. Why don't I extend the same courtesy to me? Good question! Again I hav... Read more
Learning Some Positivity
Wednesday, July 30, 2014      1 comments

So, my first assignment has to do with developing a belief that if other people can do this, I can too. It's hard to believe in myself....I've spent 54 years of screwing up, quitting, and generally making awful choices. But like my daughter, D... Read more
Here We Go Again!

It's time to get on it. My life has become a very crappy, depressing place. I've had a year of sadness, loneliness, exhaustion, frustration, illness, and despair, just to mention a few. My physical self has fallen into a big muddy pit, and I... Read more

I thought I'd share part of my work with you. As some of you know, I am a photographer by trade. I was a late bloomer. I went back to college at 50 years old, so it's not been that long since I graduated from Art College. I have d... Read more
Keep trying!

I saw this quote this morning and thought maybe others would appreciate it.... "You try, you fail; you try, you fail; but the real failure is when you stop trying!" -Walt Disney I think this should be my mantra!! I will keep on tryi... Read more
What would I Do Without My SparkFriends??

It's been a rough week. Lots of emotional turmoil and self-doubt and life-issues. Tonight I was at the point of throwing in the towel for today...I'm sick today, and it just feels like too much to think about my weight. For whatever reason, I... Read more
Trying to control my emotions.
Monday, January 13, 2014      3 comments

I have a tendency to be extra sensitive, I realize this. And I'm such an emotional eater. This is not a great combination. Last night I took my mother to see my dad at the rehab center. (He has Alzheimer's and Hydrocephalus; she has MS,... Read more
I can do ANYTHING for 1 day!!
Thursday, January 09, 2014      3 comments

This last week has been rough. My dad has been in the hospital and had major surgery, and I sat with him day and night. My daughter tried very hard to keep me fed there, but she got the flu and that slowed her down. So I either skipped meals ... Read more
If I Keep Trying I Will Eventually Get There
Wednesday, January 01, 2014      1 comments

So, here we are on the first day of yet another new year. When I decided to get started yet again on my very well travelled path to weight loss, I initially felt pretty stupid. I mean, I'm 53 years old, going to be 54 in a few months, and alth... Read more
Thank goodness for a new day!

So Tuesday was a bad day for me. I started out wrong, made bad choices all day (no excuses, right?), and cried for awhile before I crawled into bed. What can I learn from this? I always wake up hungry. Yesterday, I didn't eat for almost ... Read more
The old photo
Saturday, January 07, 2012      3 comments

I found this in a big box of old photos today. This was 1986. I hit 350 pounds by the time I had given birth to child number 4. I got a job shortly after her birth with Ri... Read more
Where I've Been and Where I'm Going.....
Saturday, January 07, 2012      2 comments

I have not always been this size. Sometimes I have a hard time remembering what it was like to be a normal size. Admittedly, I was very young back then. I am 51 years old now, and I vaguely remember being a size 15 when I was 16 years old. But ... Read more
Practice Makes Perfect

Today was Day 2. It went much better! Had a few tiny issues, but I will get there. I think my pedometer went insane. It was telling me I had been walking MUCH more than I believe I was. Guess I need to invest in a REAL one! haha! I moved ... Read more
