Thursday, August 25, 2016 2 comments
I just finished the four week "Official Sleep Challenge" here on Sparkpeople. I have done this challenge in past years but I think that I did not work at this area of my life as hard as I did this time. I think it was because 1) I was so sleep d... Read more

Last weekend my hubby and I went to the movie theater for the first time in 5 1/2 years. We are 'active seniors' (a term coined by someone who wants to designate how we Baby Boomers fit in within our massive population demography.) It means that... Read more

Thursday, July 07, 2016 9 comments
I know you are going to snicker or smile when you see that title but saying that statement, "I love to eat" means a lot of things to a lot of different people. As I progress through working through this group of like-minded team members I am fin... Read more

Can you relate? Well, I have long identified myself as an emotional eater. I have worked harder in this area of my life than any other area and yet I still feel like I have just scratched the surface on getting a real handle on my turning to foo... Read more
"Don't Look Back!" Halfway point of this calendar year
Friday, July 01, 2016 5 comments
I value my faith above everything else in my life. I am struck by how many times the Bible references the phrase and concept of not looking back. In the Old Testament, the angel warned Lot's wife not to 'look back' as she was leaving her old lif... Read more

This is an addition to the 'week in review' that I usually do. This week of the "100 Days of Weight Loss" by Linda Spangle is about 'conscious eating'. I realized at the beginning of this week that I am eating too slow (yes, that is what I ... Read more
Week 23: More of the Same but Not All That Bad Either!
Wednesday, June 22, 2016 3 comments
Current Weight: 249 lbs. No Change. However, there have been many other NSV (non scale victories) this past week so even though I am 'stuck' at this weight I am trying to see the pros and cons of where I am at. I do hope though that it will... Read more

Wednesday, June 15, 2016 7 comments
Weight: 249 lbs. (no change). I attribute this to several meals of higher sodium and sometimes extra calories. I have eaten away from home multiple times over this past week. I feel that I made good choices (at the time) but, as you know by... Read more

Current weight: 249 lbs. ( + 6 lbs. due to change in pain meds and poor food choices.) The first one (new pain meds): I can't do anything about because it has allowed to increase my steps so I am walking 1 1/2 miles each day so there is d... Read more

The end is near for spring 2016 "Biggest Loser" challenge. Our final weigh in is this coming Thursday. This is one of our Lovely Lime team's challenges but it is no 'challenge' for me to write about how much I have thoroughly enjoyed participati... Read more

Saturday, May 14, 2016 3 comments
Current weight: 240.2 lbs. No gain or loss second week in a row. As I have said in previous blog entries I am a 'recovering' emotional overeater. I was a compulsive binge eater at the worse of my emotional eating. I have been working a 12 S... Read more
