Up until about age 43, I had no weight problems that were not self correcting.

6/20/13 - I weighed 168 pounds today. I have set an interim weight goal of 10 percent or 151 pounds. I WILL do some exercise every day and log it; I will log my food.

I am dysthemic; I have SAD, aka Seasonal Affective Disorder and PTSD! I take daily medication.

"SUNNYWBL is working hard to push herself out of the dumps and back on track."

I am slowly building up my activity level into weight loss mode again. I want to start working on weight loss again through Spring, Summer and EARLY Fall. The majority of calories burned in spring and summer in 2012 have come from renovating the back yard gardens.

From a low of 145 pounds in 12/2010 I am back to around 170 pounds and need to RE-LOSE the weight. Aauuggh!Breaking my wrist last fall

Sometimes we all have those days where motivation is low, the scale lies, the work is too hard, the sun won't come out, you just don't want to bother, or it's easier just to eat the cake and not worry about it.

Yup, we all have them.

So when you do have them, here are some great, wise, words for you to ponder...

“The road to success is always under construction”
― Lily Tomlin

"Follow your passion, stay true to yourself, never follow someone else’s path unless you’re in the woods and you’re lost and you see a path then by all means you should follow that."
― Ellen Degeneres

"People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily."
― Zig Ziglar

"I believe that if life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade... And try to find somebody whose life has given them vodka, and have a party."
― Ron White

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go." – Dr. Seuss

“Live your truth. Express your love. Share your enthusiasm. Take action towards your dreams. Walk your talk. Dance and sing to your music. Embrace your blessings. Make today worth remembering.”
― Steve Maraboli.

...."and eat your veggies." – My Mother.

Hi Sunny! Thanks for the blog comments! How are you doing? I just read the description of the berries in your yard and am drooling! It must be beautiful in your neck of the woods right about now.
Enjoy! emoticon

Hi Sunny, the sodium content on Amy's thai soup is 580mg. Sodium is not a problem for me, my blood pressure runs low and my blood sodium levels run low so I can eat all the salt I want. It sounds like it's something that you have to watch, so this soup may not be for you.
Hugs,
Kay

"The Prisoner" is his name because he came to me labeled as "kitten #6"... as a fan of the old TV series (The Prisoner, starring Patrick McGoohan as "number 6", i.e. The Prisoner) I could not resist the name. emoticon Oh, and to add to the pun, he wears striped pajamas.
