I started this journey because I saw myself, believe it or not, on accident….naked in a mirror! I saw that person and could not believe I had let myself become that obese person! I hate that word “obese” it is so clinical! “Fat” is just ugly ... Read more
How many years do I have?
Saturday, February 11, 2012      0 comments

So…..I’m not a spring chicken any more. How many years do I have left to live? As we age we think more about our mortality. It is so much closer to the end of my life on this earth than I want to think about. I honestly can’t imagine the wor... Read more
Eat like a girl

I don’t want to lose this weight again. This time I want it gone. I don’t want to struggle with 100 pounds of fat again. No wonder I am tired when I walk somewhere. Carrying all this weight is tiring. I think of what a beating my feet an... Read more
It feels like I have been doing this forever!

Why? It has only been a month! I am committed but impatient. Of course it doesn't help that I don't have a scale to gauge my weight. I am doing my Weight Loss Bucket List and seeing some progress in my clothes but I know I have 50 to lose fo... Read more
Zipping my coat

Okay so I have no scale over here in Kazakhstan. I'm too embarrassed to go to the hotel desk and ask for theirs. It is in kilograms or something and all the clerks weigh 50 pounds. I never weigh in front of anyone anyway! So, I am judging my ... Read more
Keeping it between the lines.

Well, I am concentrating on keeping my food between the lines. Since I am currently in a place where I am fed and have little choice on what I eat, it is a challenge. If I were home and got extra hungry I could make a salad or choose some frui... Read more

I'm making good choices. I find I can still socialize and choose wisely. It is all in my mind. I WANT to eat something different. Other people don't care what I eat. I am still there talking and participating. I am finding I need not ea... Read more

I have never blogged before. I decided though after reading other blogs and getting used to this website that maybe that is what I need. To do what I have never done before. It wasn't working to keep doing what I have been doing for years. Don... Read more
I have a picture of myself in my mind
Friday, February 03, 2012      0 comments

I have so many BAD pictures. But then I try to avoid cameras all together. I am short and always end up in the front. I hate it. Often I am as big as two of anyone in the picture. I see other overweight people in pictures and think they look... Read more
Joined a new link

I try to find links that I can relate to. Today it was Born in 1950. It makes you feel you are not alone to link with others of a similar age. We are all struggling at the same time in our lives. Every time I would hit a decade 20s, 30s,... Read more

As I reflected on losing the 50 pounds I promised myself to lose before I can go on my trip in November I caught myself doing something I have always done that needs to change! I was saying to myself that since I am overseas now until March... Read more
Woohoo I have found my carrot
Sunday, January 29, 2012      0 comments

I knew I had to find something that was a reward for doing well that I wouldn't normally do. I tend to reward myself all the time for being me I guess! Anyway, I decided that since I love Christmas and I had a tentative arrangement with my bes... Read more
