Total Eclipse of the Heart, and trip to dentist
Thursday, June 04, 2009      4 comments

Just a few funny things to note from today. Tonight my husband played a video for me which is sort of a parody of the song "Total Eclipse of the Heart" by Bonnie Taylor. They sing different words that sort of go along with the sort of creepy 8... Read more
Doing better on my calories and food choices
Wednesday, June 03, 2009      3 comments

Each day I am doing better on my calorie intake and food choices. I'm really proud of myself because when I first tried to eat my new calorie range, I was starving. But I think a lot of that was due to the fact that the foods I had "wasted" my... Read more

First, I must say thank you to MARTMANIA for encouraging me to run. I am going to start adding some running into my walking workouts. Tonight I had an excellent walk/run. Went down on part of a trail near my house and decided to put some grea... Read more
A few random thoughts
Tuesday, June 02, 2009      2 comments

1. I should be in bed 2. I think I saw a raccoon in the middle of the street when I was walking tonight. 3. I asked my brother to send me a special gift from Heaven tomorrow. If it shows up in my day in any way, I will know it is him. It i... Read more

Week in review & thinking about rewards
Friday, May 29, 2009      3 comments

I'm still having problems staying within my calorie range and getting enough protein. I'm focusing on that a lot. But I know I am learning as I do this. I am making pretty good food choices. I ate one greasy thing though that didn't sit well... Read more

Pray for my dad
Wednesday, May 27, 2009      5 comments

Please pray for my dad and/or send positive healing energy his way. There was a health concern at a recent physical and the specialist can't see him until June 18. Either way, whether serious or just an annoyance, it sounds like he has colon i... Read more
Hunger Pains
Sunday, May 24, 2009      2 comments

So...I think this whole limiting calories thing is going to take a teensy weensy bit of getting used to. I see it this way, I used to eat until I was full...and then some. Now, I eat until I'm full, but there is a fine line between too full an... Read more

I took a late evening walk with my friend Megan tonight after our babies were in bed. We talked about so much. It was wonderful! It turns out we are both having a similar problem with our people we would have used to considered our "best frie... Read more

Sheesh, it's a lot of work to meet all my goals for the day. I like to get to bed by 10:00 but here it is, 10:31 and I am still up. I still have about 10 minutes of things left I'd like to do. At least I have a long weekend to recover and I'l... Read more

Something "sparked" within me. I am back on track. All of a sudden losing weight doesn't seem so hard or scary any more. I am full of confidence because I realize that for the most part, I can control it! What changed, do you ask? I don... Read more
venting a little - imbalances in friendships
Thursday, May 07, 2009      4 comments

For the past few years, I have been feeling a lot of imbalance between what I want deep down and what others want. I am a people pleaser. Always have been. I still want to do kind things for people and help people. But one of my main problem... Read more

Wednesday, April 22, 2009      1 comments

Here is another week of small goals. My goals for last week were to lose 2 lbs (which I did not), walk daily (which I did ALMOST every day)!, and eat reasonably last weekend while I was gone. That one's hard to measure but I will call it a suc... Read more
