Squeaked by again
Friday, February 05, 2016      1 comments

Thursdays are my weigh-in days. Weather forced cancellation of our meeting last week, my home scales showed a loss. Apparently I took that as permission to relax food program as I narrowly stayed the same at yesterday's scale encounter. Could it... Read more
Two forward, one back
Friday, January 22, 2016      3 comments

My New Year's momentum experienced a small setback at yesterday's weigh-in with a 3/4 # gain. Would like to blame the high sodium dinner of the night before, but in reality took several liberties with my food program during the week and it caugh... Read more
September goals
Tuesday, September 01, 2015      2 comments

Actually, this blog is about more than September goals, although I've set some and hope to follow through. Several of the blogs I've read lately have really provided good food for thought. I could plug myself into any one of them and report the ... Read more
Today was better

Thanks to all who encouraged me when I wrote yesterday about my evening splurge. Today I was still not certain I would stay within range. My granddaughters are staying with me without their parents for the first time since I've been by myself. W... Read more
Sabotage strikes again
Monday, August 17, 2015      6 comments

After productive day with many positives could not limit dinner and ended up over calorie range. Cannot blame stress. Once again, as soon as we think we have it figured out, we don't. Hoping to get to bedtime with just water. Tomorrow another da... Read more
Time moving too quickly
Friday, August 14, 2015      1 comments

Having hit yet another "maintenance mode" in my weight loss journey I decided perhaps it was time to blog again. Could not believe that I had not written since November, 2014. Today's weather a far cry from that day as we have sun, high humidity... Read more
Another Week Another Pound

We're experiencing early winter driving conditions here in northern Michigan. I debated about whether to drive the 10 miles to my weigh-in, but the sun was shining so decided to chance it. I was rewarded with a 1# loss which made me happy I went... Read more
No Days Off

Missed my weight loss group a week ago yesterday because I was traveling. It seems like each time that happens, I experience a small gain. Frustrating to me, since I have years of experience in this battle, and it seems that I should be able "to... Read more
5K Hike
Monday, November 03, 2014      3 comments

DS#1 visiting for a couple of days. He has lost a total of 95 pounds, working hard at the gym and giving up processed and fast food. Today he decided we should hike a 3.1 mile loop on state land near here. They probably call it rolling terrain, ... Read more
Could Have Been Worse
Thursday, October 30, 2014      4 comments

Although I fell short of my goal of losing weight for 2nd week in a row, I did score a very solid "stayed the same." As I think back over my week and look at my food diary, I was probably lucky to achieve that. I was not as conscientious about m... Read more
Finally left the fractions behind
Thursday, October 23, 2014      4 comments

I've been coasting along with 1/4 pound losses, gains, for awhile now. Decided to get serious this past week and lost 2.25 at weigh-in today. Was top loser in my little weight loss group. Now to keep momentum going. It was not rocket science. Pr... Read more
Another Quarter
Friday, October 17, 2014      3 comments

Still squeaking by here, lost 1/4 at weigh-in yesterday. I remain active as I tackle the autumn outdoor chores, but apparently feel that the activity gives me license to eat more heartily. I am reminding myself that holidays will soon be upon us... Read more
Squeaking becoming tiresome
Friday, September 12, 2014      4 comments

Squeaking becoming tiresome could refer to the sinus infection I've been fighting for a couple of weeks. Major symptoms are managed, but never sure when I open my mouth the quality of voice that will emerge. Made for some humorous moments trying... Read more
Salty cure?
Thursday, September 04, 2014      1 comments

I've been fighting allergies, sinus, whatever, for a few days now. Decided to pick up something to manage symptoms. Just grabbed one that promised relief from the symptoms that were irritating. Didn't feel like going to my weight loss group but ... Read more

Thursday, August 28, 2014      3 comments

My goal for today's weigh in was not to have gained weight during our vacation last week. Actually lost 1/4 pound over the 2-week period since last weigh-in, so was pleased. Now to set some goals for September and hopefully make that scale numb... Read more
