I chose the Keto diet as the way to lose weight. I did pretty well until Thanksgiving, at which time two things happened: (i) I fell of the wagon and (ii) the amount of hair that was falling out was increasing. I did a little online research ... Read more
Getting There!!
Friday, November 16, 2018      2 comments

So I have to share with my Sparkpeople as my family just doesn't understand! I'm 10.8 pounds away from goal! (My goal being out of the obese BMI and into the overweight BMI. . .I know sad, but BMI is BS!) While it's slow going now, it's s... Read more

Change for this week. . .no sodas (diet or otherwise)! I have to accept that neither are good for me and can easily derail my attempt at a more healthy lifestyle.... Read more
High Blood Pressure
Saturday, October 22, 2016      6 comments

I have recently learned that I have high blood pressure. That scares me a lot. It started with headaches (I never get headaches!). I went to my doctor and my blood pressure was high. He gave me samples of medication to try, which I didn't ta... Read more

Monday, July 11, 2016      4 comments

I decided to try the keto life to see if it is sustainable for me. I researched it to death and I really liked what I found. Granted, I've only done this for a week now, but I haven't felt hungry and had no cravings. I don't have the symptom ... Read more

Addiction is a powerful and scary thing. I have an addictive personality and I always have to be addicted to something. Luckily, I figured this out early on, and while I am unable to NOT be addicted to something, I'm lucky in that I never did ... Read more

I'm not hungry! What?? you say? Yes, you read right. I'm not hungry! I'm at the end of week one and I'm down 4 pounds and 1.25 inches (total body). Okay, it's water weight, but so what? I'M DOWN! And I'm not hungry. I actually stayed on ... Read more
Here we go. . .AGAIN!
Monday, August 18, 2014      0 comments

I'm not sure how many times I've said that in my life, but I'm getting a bit tired of it. I have NEVER reached my goal weight, but I'm determined to do it this time. I've gotten close once (in 2010), but never actually made it. THAT'S GOING T... Read more
A Shout-Out to My Baby Boy

I have to give a shout-out to my baby boy. (My baby boy will be 15 this month.) He is my greatest supporter as well as my greatest cheerleader. Out of everyone in my family, he's the one that keeps me on track. My mom (who always says that d... Read more

Friday, May 03, 2013      3 comments

I finally took the plunge! I went to the plastic surgeon last week and I've scheduled a tummy tuck. Now, before you jump on the "what are you doing" bandwagon, let me tell you my story. Technically I need to lose 20 more pounds. That wou... Read more
Wow! You get a lot done with you get up early!

Needless to say, I am not a morning person. Now, if you need something done in the middle of the night, I'm your gal! But this morning, an amazing thing happened. I got up at 6:30. And rather than be a slug, I got started on my day. I finis... Read more
I want to be a Success Story!!!
Tuesday, April 02, 2013      5 comments

Good morning all! Today I was cruising around SparkPeople and I always stop on the Success Stories. They kinda help me out in that they make me feel like there's hope. And since I'm "almost" at the half-way point (1.2 pounds away. . .yay!!!),... Read more
A cool thing
Thursday, March 21, 2013      1 comments

One of the things that is really cool for me about losing a bit of weight (and I know this sounds dorky, but here goes anyway) is that I can feel my breastbone. Who knew I had one? If I ever felt in that area before, it was just soft and mushy... Read more
Milestone fail!!!
Tuesday, March 19, 2013      3 comments

Man, oh, man! Sometimes you just gotta wonder about yourself. I reached my mini-goal of 20 pounds lost last week. Does that give me motivation to keep going? Apparently not! Forgive me SparkPeople, because I have sinned. While not a MAJOR ... Read more
Milestone Reached!!!
Monday, March 11, 2013      4 comments

FINALLY! I hit my first "mini-goal." At the beginning of week 8, I have managed to lose 20 pounds! Sadly, I don't feel any different. You would think 20 pounds makes a difference, but apparently you hit a point in your weight when 20 pounds ... Read more
