Resolved. Again.
Saturday, January 02, 2016      4 comments

I've been in a funk for the last few months, but I've done some reflecting and thinking and I'm ready to resolve again to get back on the path, on the journey to a healthier me. The funk came about just because of life, but I was beating up myse... Read more
About the clothes. Again.
Tuesday, April 21, 2015      3 comments

I keep writing about clothes. I guess that's because that's one of the more "public" signs of my losing weight. I know there's more going on than just clothing sizes, but the size is something that matters. Usually, after winter, I try on the ... Read more
Clothes are interesting......

So, as I continue on this journey to better health and lower weight, I'm observing some changes in my approach to dressing. I use to think a lot about what I wore since some clothes fit better on some days. Now, I think only of what's appropri... Read more

So, in August, I was wearing pants with waistbands for the first time in.......I don't remember. Since then I've bought a belt. Haven't worn one of those in about 25 years. Used it to hold up my pants. In my belt loops on the waistband. Wow... Read more
Summer of Waistbands............
Friday, August 22, 2014      4 comments

When I think back over June and July, I tend to think of WAISTBANDS. Until June 2014 I was wearing elastic-waist jeans and slacks, but as I continued to lose weight, my jeans were too big, and when I looked into ordering the next size down, the... Read more

On Thursday I had lunch with dear friends; hadn't seen either in about 6 months. Well, neither could get over the change in me; they were shocked--in a good way--by my appearance. Even though we talked about several topics, they kept going back ... Read more
Big Change.....

Well, today my husband checked off another item on his wish list: a puppy. Actually, a dog. We went to an animal shelter/rescue shelter, and we both liked a house broken beagel/basset hound mix. She's between 2-3 years old, they think. So far,... Read more
Wrapping up 2013.....
Tuesday, December 31, 2013      0 comments

Overall, a good year for me. I've committed myself to a lifestyle change and have lost enough weight to be encouraged/motivated to continue this journey. I never thought I'd be running(!) as part of my exercised program, but I've started an in... Read more

Hope everyone is feeling better. Take care of yourself, think of what's good for you to get and stay well, reduce the stress and keep changing our lifestyles. This past weekend I lost sight of that and needed to re-focus yesterday. We're pl... Read more

Today our high was 55--in December! But be ready because tomorrow through the end of the week will be ccccold. And we'll probably get snow because of the quick change in temperatures. I'm still doing interval training. Yesterday, first day in ... Read more

The Black Friday crush must be over-----we went to grocery store and were pleased at how "unbusy" it was. We were also able to complete other errands today without a lot of traffic. We had great weather today. The temps were mild, for the end ... Read more

I'm part of a team that is changing lifestyles, and as the name suggests, it is a challenge, but I'm beginning to see some results of my work. Last week my husband wanted to go to Taco Bell for lunch and try the steak stack, so we did. I could... Read more

this a.m. when I weighed, I was down some--into the 230's, just barely, but in the 230's. So that's good. Just need to keep working at it.... Read more
