Here It Is Fall Already
Saturday, October 08, 2011      3 comments

I have been off the rails again, trying to swing my way back over to sanity. Not sure why I cannot seem to stay on track, but I suspect it has something to do with crazy shifts which affect my outlook on life, etc. I am trying to work on my att... Read more
Darn those graduation parties!
Sunday, June 05, 2011      3 comments

I did well all day, then "stopped by" a graduation party on the way home. I should have known I was in danger! I was hungry, and tired from working all day (I work 10 hour shifts--unbearably long), and there was that CAKE with CHOCOLATE MOUSSE i... Read more

I live near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which is not exactly known for its sunny weather! I find that when our weather is nice, my whole outlook on life is better. I eat healthier, I am more motivated to get exercise in, and my outlook in general ... Read more
Another Pound Down

I think it's working...for today!

I have been diligent about logging in to Spark People every day, and sticking with the program. I think it just might be working! I am not weighing myself every day, because it is such a downer when the scale goes up or doesn't budge. And I am a... Read more
In control

I am feeling much more in control of my destiny today. I ate a big lunch with my daughters, but I cut out calories everywhere that I could--had a side salad instead of fries, had them serve me a burger without the bun, diet soda instead of lemon... Read more
Lost a pound
Sunday, May 29, 2011      5 comments

I am paying much closer attention to meeting my goals not just in calories--but protein, carbs, fat grams, etc. It might just be that I have to fall within these specific guidelines to lose any weight at all. I did drop down a pound from my last... Read more

I am continuing to eat healthy, staying within my allotted calories/carbs/fat/proteins, etc. I am NOT stepping on the scale, because it never has good news for me. I am just going to focus on leading a happy, fulfilling life. I really wish I was... Read more

Slow Going
Wednesday, May 25, 2011      3 comments

Well, I lost about 10lbs., then came to a screeching halt...it is so very frustrating. I had added more protein to my diet, which really seemed to help me quite a bit. For awhile. Now I am going to go back to just a straight "sparkpeople" diet, ... Read more

Slow but sure

Well, thanks to all my Spark Buddies who stopped by to encourage me. I am hanging in there, logging my food and doing my exercises. I still have some difficult health issues which are wearing me down, but I went to the doc and have some tests sc... Read more

Well...you must have thought I had fallen off the face of the earth...I didn't! Just fell off of my Spark People commitment. I did have my gallbladder out, and have dealt with some health issues with my younger daughter (two foot surgeries this ... Read more
