2nd blog entry in as many months - am celebrating in small fashion
Thursday, March 09, 2017      1 comments

This is my second blog entry in less than 30 days. The one last month was the first in a very long time. I've let 15 pounds creep back on from the 50 I lost. Granted, it has taken four years to gain, but even so ..... In the last week or... Read more
1st blog entry in long time
Saturday, February 11, 2017      2 comments

Hello, world, Haven't written a blog entry or anything like that on Sparkpeople for a LONG time. Gotta get back in the swing of things. Am letting everything pull me down concerning weight. I will NOT go back from whence I came. It is S... Read more
Makin' progress ....
Monday, May 19, 2014      0 comments

Just a bit ago, I wrote a blog about trying to get back to my pre-Christmas weight and below. I had lost 50 pounds and had let a few creep back on. I'm happy to report that I've now been at my pre-Christmas weight for several days in a row... Read more
Funny thing - deja vu from a year and 1 day ago
Tuesday, April 22, 2014      4 comments

Life is funny ... it's strange. The last blog entry I made was one year and one day ago. It was titled "getting back into the swing of things." As the saying goes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. I'm happy to rep... Read more
Getting back into the swing of things
Thursday, March 21, 2013      1 comments

For the past few weeks I've been rather out of the loop on Sparkpeople and also regarding my walking program. Getting ready for my chorus' regional competition, going back to teaching part-time and also getting sick have all taken a toll. Now, i... Read more
Moved into my final weight 'bracket' today!
Sunday, November 11, 2012      1 comments

This morning I had a feeling when I stepped on the scales. I thought that this would be the day ... and it was! I moved into the final 10-pound bracket (as my mother used to call it) or my final weight "decade" (as I myself term it). Yea!... Read more
Another revelation: Thera Tears tablets and glucosomine have calories
Saturday, July 07, 2012      2 comments

After having taken Thera Tears tablets (almost) every day for nearly two years for my dry eye syndrome, I have just now looked at the nutrition label on the back. I didn't know that the daily dosage of 3 tablets carries 30 calories! Wow. I ha... Read more

Tuesday, July 03, 2012      2 comments

To the world at large: I have finally figured out how to read notes on my SparkPeople goodies. Only took me 2 years! So if I failed to respond to you in an appropriate manner, I apologize. Actually, it was kind of fun to go back ... Read more
I got a "WOWZA," "What a hotie" and "No wonder she looks like that."
Saturday, June 30, 2012      2 comments

OK, normally saying what I said in the headline accompanying this story would be considered bragging. But I'm trusting that here on SparkPeople.com, it's not. I just posted a new profile pic of myself on Facebook, and among the comments wer... Read more
Exercising with SP friend on speaker phone while both watching same video
Monday, April 09, 2012      1 comments

Yesterday a SP friend and I started a new exercise routine. I've had a hard time keeping up with any sort of strength training. I would start it and then let it fall by the wayside. In desperation, I asked a SP friend to start exercising with... Read more
Stymied a bit with life's trials, but persevering with the new attitude
Friday, February 24, 2012      0 comments

This week brought some trials with a family illness and a hospital stay. Everything is all right now, but my house-cleaning train got derailed. The family member came back at home yesterday, and all is well today except for a little headache (li... Read more
Today is Day #1 of new attitude
Monday, February 20, 2012      1 comments

Today I'm approaching life with a certain new attitude. I got up and ate breakfast almost right away, not lollygagging around as (my husband and) I usually do. My hope was that the food would raise my energy level and lead to toward accom... Read more
Everyone: Hang in there! You can do it! It's worth it!

Just a short note to say that the pound I have been chasing for more than a month finally disappeared last night. I could tell that the loss was coming and was anticipating it very much. So, all of you who are in a little plateau right now or w... Read more
Succeeded in 2 new goals this week
Saturday, February 11, 2012      2 comments

As the week draws to a close, I am glad to say that I managed to begin a new streak (albeit just one week so far): cleaning the house at least 10 minutes a day 3 times a week. A small start in trying to get my house in order, but at least it's... Read more
Adding another goal to my streaks: 10 min of housecleaning 3xwk
Monday, February 06, 2012      0 comments

OK, I know this doesn't sound like much, but I've just got to get myself "going" on this. Our last housekeeper "fired" us a few months before I retired, and I reasoned: I can clean our house. Millions of people around the world do this. So why c... Read more
