Even overcast, cool weather couldn't dull the beauty of the Pictured Rocks and waterfalls we hiked to last week in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. I have plenty of bea... Read more
It Pays to Lose
Friday, August 15, 2014      4 comments

Last week I had a great weigh-in with a 2-3/4 pound loss. I'm usually lucky to have lost at all, and then only in fractions of a pound. The trick was keeping it off until yesterday's weigh-in. (Our small weight loss group rewards that feat with ... Read more
Finally a step forward

After three weeks of staying the same and gaining at weigh-in, finally recorded a loss yesterday. It reflected some effort on my part, had been just coasting and not really paying attention to portions and healthy choices. Journaling is still th... Read more

Whew! Escaped a gain at yesterday's weigh-in with a very Squeaky Turtle. Expected better, but had a few late evening extras and lunch out on Wednesday. Back to it today, journaling, working outside, even a little house cleaning, not one of my f... Read more

Two months since I've blogged, can hardly believe it's time to start thinking about July goals. Have a couple of pounds off, but progress is slow. The support of my small weight loss group helps a lot, and the past two weeks I have returned to h... Read more
Weight loss more elusive than Spring!

I am doing a pretty good job of maintaining the same pound. I lose 3/4 one week, gain it back the next. Pretty much at the same place on the scale that I was in February. It is not a mystery. I'm eating too much too often. Temps have only been i... Read more
April goals

The lingering winter has been hard on my weight loss effort. My little record book shows no forward progress in March, just treading water so to speak. The view out the window is a little better today. Still piles of snow, but more and more brow... Read more
January progress-February goals

At weigh-in yesterday was down another 1.25 pounds, making a total of 3.25 for the month of January. Unfortunately this was another time around for these pounds as I had put them on over the holiday period. Revved up to continue progress in Febr... Read more
Squeaky Turtle

As I continue this weight loss journey I've added another phrase to my vocabulary: Squeaky Turtle. I was awarded this designation at my weigh in yesterday, possibly because it was Christmas. Turtling refers to not gaining or losing, the squeaky ... Read more

I blogged about my October weight loss because 3# for me is huge at this point in my life. It was enough to win me a small award in my local weight loss group. So far in November the numbers have slowed, but at the end of 3 weigh ins my net loss... Read more

Lost 3/4 pound at WI yesterday and was thrilled. I remember the day when less than a pound was a disappointment. Moving slowly toward my year-end goal, but moving. For this I am thankful. ... Read more

Lost another pound at weigh in today. That makes 3 total for the month of October. That doesn't seem like a lot, but it's huge progress for me. Have been focusing on portion control and cutting off snacking after dinner. Not successful 100% of t... Read more

Time with granddaughters went well today. Pretty muggy and uncomfortable out, so kept them busy inside. We did a couple of pretty neat sock puppets early on, some lessons, and computer math. Both of them read really well, but still enjoy being ... Read more
On the Road Again

Heading downstate later today to spend a few days babysitting granddaughters. They're pretty independent, so it's not the chore it was when they were toddlers. It will be a positive experience with food choices, since theirs is an organic househ... Read more
September 1st blog-2 days late

After pretty much coasting all summer as far as scale weight is concerned, finally starting to move a bit. I've found that the Fitbit has increased my steps dramatically (earned 35k badge a few weeks ago) but apparently has also given me "licens... Read more
