May I Have your Attention? This is Important!
Monday, September 06, 2010      12 comments

OK, that blog title was more to myself than to you...but since you're here, you can be my witnesses. I have been stuck at the same weight (160) for, like, forever. I only have ten pounds left to go to reach my first goal weight. Now it is ... Read more

I thought I would share with you the story of my dinner. First here is a picture of it (this is definitely a "before" picture...I will spare you the "after" picture): ... Read more
Losing Emotional Weight
Monday, August 30, 2010      6 comments

It's been an emotionally heavy weekend. I had a huge blowout with DH in a public place, no less, on Saturday. This disturbed my sleep and exhausted me as both anger and sorrow raged through me. I ate way too much- I'm not really sure if it wa... Read more
Some Garden Memories:
Saturday, August 28, 2010      9 comments

I used to love to garden...(well, I would STILL love to garden...but physically can't anymore). Since this is my first year without a garden to speak of, I have to live off of my memories of past ones. And since I can't brag of this year's pla... Read more
How Exercise Helped—and Hurt me
Tuesday, August 24, 2010      18 comments

By Cynthia Lott Vogel I came to Spark People desperate to change this sick, pudgy body into the thin person I’d been for most of my life. Years of illness and medications like cortico-steriods had packed weight onto my 5’4” body until I we... Read more
The Last Walk before Dislocation
Saturday, August 21, 2010      5 comments

I miss walking so MUCH...and it's been less than a week. Last Tuesday morning I took a walk...a new recent record for me in length...and fortunately had my camera alongside to record what was to be a very momentous walk...It was my last one may... Read more
What to think of when you HURT
Monday, August 16, 2010      6 comments

I haven't blogged in a while. A while for me that is. I tend to be prolific...but actually ALL my blogs (I have three) are suffering at the moment. I'm suffering from paltry thoughts and constipated emotions! Just trying to get through each ... Read more
Bulldozing my Past
Sunday, August 08, 2010      3 comments

I no longer want the drama of being sick. It is an interruption and an intrusion. I’m scared of getting sick, physically or mentally, again. I am thinking more and more of looking good; feeling good; and feeling STRONG and capable. Like if so... Read more
Time to Clean out the Closet!
Saturday, August 07, 2010      6 comments

Well, it's 12:00...so far I've done my two mile+ walk (the first time I've tried that since my hip dislocation on Tuesday); I've cleaned out my closets and my trunks. This is a bigger process than it sounds like it is. I have a big storage tr... Read more
The week in Review
Friday, August 06, 2010      1 comments

The last time I wrote was on Tuesday. Now it's Friday and some major changes have transpired this week. Later in the day Tuesday, I did a semi-squat to pick up something...and pop...and OWWWWwwww; my new hip joint popped out of position. Let ... Read more
Critical Breakthrough
Tuesday, August 03, 2010      2 comments

A lot has been going on internally, emotionally...regarding food and life. And that's what losing weight and getting healthy is all about, right? Anyone can lose weight...but that does not make them healthy. In fact, some of the most UNhealth... Read more
about my page re-design:
Monday, August 02, 2010      4 comments

I hope no one takes offense or tries to be critical by saying "There are NO SUCH THINGS as 'bad foods' "...I understand that. However, what I meant was the WHOLE PLATEof brownies is a no-no...and really, it was just meant to be funny. So don't... Read more
eliminating a blog that I had second thoughts about posting
Monday, August 02, 2010      1 comments

I tried to delete a blog, and found that this site has no way of doing that. It insists, even if you "erase" everything in the blog, that you publish a title and a body of text. So this is my new body of text...and hopefully the other one will... Read more
The Forgotten Food
Thursday, July 29, 2010      7 comments

Here's another "qu0te" from a message board item I posted on the topic, "How do you break your bad habits?" Thought maybe it would help some of you midnight rummagers! My current worst habit is that I eat when I get up in the middle of th... Read more
Even the Doctor Noticed!
Wednesday, July 28, 2010      6 comments

I just came home from the doctor whom I am seeing for the hip joint infection and was so happy when he paused from looking at my incision and said, "You know you are looking SO MUCH BETTER!" He said it several times, sort of amazed. When I tol... Read more
