It's been a while since I posted anything concerning these grandkids. We don't connect like we used to as work is tough for me and my kids are finding more to do with two of their own. However we took a trip to a local aquarium last week. What f... Read more
Day 63, still doing it. Tough.
Friday, March 07, 2014      7 comments

I don't like coughing. I don't like coughing and being an older woman. I don't like coughing, being an older woman and having a full bladder. I am mentally tough. I am conquering my eating problems. I am a bit physically wimpy toda... Read more
62 days of toughness.
Thursday, March 06, 2014      9 comments

I've seen the scale go down 13 pounds since January. I think it all came together at the same time. Done with feeling fat. Done with being out of control. Done with letting my emotions control my eating habits. New job, less driving. ... Read more
60 days. 2/3 the way there or only begining?
Tuesday, March 04, 2014      8 comments

It started out as a challenge. Be Mentally Tough for 90 days. Show what you learned, eat right, tell yourself no, win the fight over bad habits. My proclaimed goal? Loose 25 pounds by May 31. I wouldn't do that in 90 days, I added some e... Read more
Loosing track, I think this is 58 days of Mentally Tough and it's just another day.

My body has adjusted to the changes I have made in my diet. I rarely get those cravings for fat such as cheese, butter or fatty meat. I am a reformed charcoal burned/ roasted fat chewer. Mom and I would fight over the crunchy stuff. As I ... Read more
Day 57 journal on day 56 blow up...long
Saturday, March 01, 2014      7 comments

I showed my work mental toughness yesterday and yet I lost a small battle on my personal compliance war (I'll live). I'm so pissed I can't find my usual allegory to make the story interesting. I have no humor left. I continue to find proble... Read more
Day 55 and the work continues at work and on me.

I started the new job after I started the Mentally Tough challenge and I think the challenges I face at work support my personal goals. I no longer have an office to hide ... Read more

Down 11 pounds by choosing my food carefully. Have a great day!... Read more
Day 53? Wow.
Tuesday, February 25, 2014      7 comments

I have been compliant. Remember, compliance is different for each of us. My compliance is eating a normal-sized, reduced fat, little refined foods and lower carb diet. I am weaning myself from cleaning plates, rummaging through cabinets an... Read more
Day 52 Looking for something else to eat
Monday, February 24, 2014      7 comments

I finished my day today looking for something else to eat. My tracker was not complete and I was done with dinner! I have really got this week measured to a T so I can have piece of raisin toast and still be on my low end. I've pulled most c... Read more
Day 51 and trying not to kill anyone
Sunday, February 23, 2014      7 comments

My pool collapsed. This is my brand new, redesign the backyard around the pool-pool. Work close to home so you can go in it pool. Stupid ice and snow. The weight was too much, it was too frozen and we could not get the weight off. This... Read more

A coworker at my new job approached me and said: "You've lost a lot of weight since you started." Nice.... Read more
Day 49 (I inserted Steve S's voice when I told myself "Day 49")
Friday, February 21, 2014      6 comments

I don't think I have done anything with purpose for 49 straight days. The last time I lost a large amount of weight was a bad time full of young family issues and extraneous life. Then I learned to compensate BY eating. I can't say those day... Read more
Day 48: Baggy pants.
Thursday, February 20, 2014      8 comments

I like baggy pants. Not the kind you see around town accompanied by views of plain or plaid boxers where the crotch of the pants is at knee level and the guys who wear them have to climb down to get their cell phones out of the pockets at thei... Read more
Polar vortex, smortex. How can I be MT when I'm so cold?
Wednesday, February 19, 2014      6 comments

Wow day 47 and I have still kept my promise to myself. This ice cream sits in the freezer, staring at me every time I open the door. The cheese curls and chips I can avoid. I have had a few Hershey kisses(dark) as therapeutic and covered in ... Read more
