Eating Out
Tuesday, August 13, 2019      3 comments

When I'm trying to eat my plan, the inevitable times when I need to eat outside my home (and control) usually stress me. This time, however, I am focusing on eating with less sugar and fat, more fruits and vegetables, and portion control. It may... Read more

Years ago, when I had great difficulty sleeping, my doctors had me build a bedtime routine to condition myself to fall asleep. Unfortunately, one of the main building blocks of that plan was a bedtime snack. I have no problem sticking to my eati... Read more

I've just started over again - after an almost 2 year break after my mom's death. One of my first challenges is tracking food honestly. I eat what I've planned until after dinner. At bedtime I want to eat EVERYTHING and sometimes I do. I have pr... Read more

I have a new resolution that has nothing to do directly with weight loss, but I think it will help weight loss too. When I have a big project, if I just start, it makes me feel better. I can get a lot done in a small amount of time. Instead of f... Read more

I have just realized how much time I spend watching TV or being on the computer each day and how much time that takes away from my being able to do other, needed things. I live in a rural setting with a couple of friends and a couple of fam... Read more

I am finally beginning to feel better after getting so exhausted last week. Even though we had snow this morning the roads cleared off and I decided to go down to the little cafe that has just opened in town. I need to make some friends here and... Read more
I Can't Talk (but it's okay)
Sunday, February 07, 2016      1 comments

I found out this week that I have a mound of scar tissue inside my mouth that I have to break up with massage or it will mean more surgery. I am making a bit of progress, but talking causes me to deteriorate so - no talking. I also found ou... Read more

I accomplished some of yesterday's goals. I did not get down on myself because not everything was done. I ate my program and I will just carry the unfinished goals over till today. Part of the problem was the severe weather that passed thro... Read more
Today's Better

I woke up today without yesterday's migraine. I DID manage to wash a load of clothes and get a shower yesterday so I met those goals. I ate my program during the day and fell off the wagon big time last night. I wish it hadn't happened, but toda... Read more
Small setback, different reaction . . .

I used to have terrible migraine headaches - They lasted days and I had to give myself injections and pills to get rid of them. I woke up with one this morning. I don't have them nearly so often and I have oral meds that will take care of it ove... Read more
Step One - Done
Sunday, January 31, 2016      4 comments

I now have January's bills reconciled and a budget set up for February. Not exactly a weight loss effort, but I think managing any aspect of our life helps us to progress in the others. Still have a ton of stuff to do, but I made that one step. ... Read more
One step . . .

Okay, I've identified the need to re-boot my life. What now? After I see the problem, sometimes there is a period of inertia before I get started. Granted I just had a big surgical procedure on my face, but it is healing nicely. I am far behind ... Read more

I take Sundays off from most activities, but my mind still races. Slowing down gives me more of a chance to see everything that needs doing from the house to my eating to my exercise. Sometimes you move ahead by slowing down.... Read more
It's time to get serious again!
Friday, January 22, 2016      1 comments

The title says it all. Even though my weight has gone down tiny amounts at a time, the shape of my body is changing and it is not for the better. I know I need to exercise. It's time to get serious about it. I am recovering from a surgery right... Read more
I may be here off and on for a while ...

I had what I thought would be a routine medical appointment today. There are some serious medical issues that my blood work raised. Thankfully, God provided the perfect person to investigate and treat the problems. I will be here when I can be, ... Read more
