my day in review
Monday, July 26, 2010      1 comments

Tonight, as is usually the case, I am eating alone. My daughter is away overnight at a friend's and my husband works late each night. Yesterday, I had an "off" day with my eating and I didn't even bother tracking because it was impossible with... Read more
"Layaway"
Thursday, July 22, 2010      4 comments

I'm on "rest duty," having been put there by my husband. He made me swear not to walk outside or to do any exercises for the next few days because I've been having some pain in my new hip joint. He wants to see, (rightly so) if it diminishes o... Read more

The following is a couple of paragraphs which I copied and pasted from an entry I wrote on a message board today in order to encourage my self and someone else. It occurred to me that maybe there are more people who would derive encouragement f... Read more

I woke today in pain. That, actually is NOTHING new. What was "new" was that the pain woke me at 6:30 instead of 3:00 AM like it usually did. So I looked out the window at the sunny morning and said, "Self, you are going to take your butt ... Read more
AMAZING Progress!!

I haven't checked the details of this info on my fitness tracker, but I'm close enough to the facts and sure enough of them to share them with you. Several months ago I was in the hospital recovering from asthma...that was in the early days... Read more
Re-Thinking
Wednesday, July 14, 2010      4 comments

I was just tracking my goals this morning and one of them caught my eye...It was this: To capture and replace any negative thinking with good thoughts. Well, if you read my first blog from this morning, you would see that I was in quite a... Read more
A Rainy Day
Wednesday, July 14, 2010      4 comments

Today I am struggling not to be discouraged. While it's true that I lost a total of two and a half inches since I last measured and weighed; I'd gained 3 pounds. Now I KNOW that that is very likely muscle weight or even water weight...because ... Read more

I'm having a tough day today. I woke up in really bad pain, which delayed my getting out of bed for an extra two hours...and made my planned AM walk impossible. After my shower, I did manage to do my strength training that was scheduled, altho... Read more
A Cherry of a Cheat
Sunday, July 11, 2010      5 comments

Well, it's been almost a week of being faithful to Spark. I've met or come close to meeting my calorie goals (which I've lowered a bit to make up for a more limited activity level) each day...except probably for yesterday... Specifically; last... Read more
A Yogic Solution?
Thursday, July 08, 2010      1 comments

This morning I followed the advice given by one of the commenters on my last blog and googled "chair yoga." Not only did I find a VHS (so I settled!) video on Chair Yoga (on sale for $5.00) which I ordered, but I also found many YouTube videos ... Read more
No Longer OBESE!!
Wednesday, July 07, 2010      5 comments

While my weight has not gone up in the past week...it hasn't gone down either....In fact, maybe in the past TWO weeks. I've been very casual about the way I've been eating and tracking has been non-existent. Frankly, all I've been concerned a... Read more

It's finally NOTICEABLE!....to EVERYONE!! I've now lost 40 pounds from when I started...and people, everywhere I go are saying things like, "Cynthia, you are looking so much BETTER!" (Translation: "less fat"). A couple of people (maybe five o... Read more

After weeks of nausea from my IV antibiotic, I am finally starting to be able to eat again...and am frightened by that fact...that I will suddenly have the urge to eat "the house"...and will regain all the weight that I've lost. I know that my ... Read more
Medical Troubles lead to Mental Struggles
Tuesday, June 15, 2010      0 comments

I don't know where to start, or where to end...having made the declaration on my Spark Page that "I am more than a body...more than an illness"... Seems like this body just travels from one illness to another. I had my first hip replacemen... Read more
