slow but sure

I am starting over. The weight has crept back on this past year and I just don't feel well at all. My good habits have gone by the wayside. So....as of today I have set new goals: Lose 14 lbs by mid December, get back in the habit of drinking water, and getting 8 hours of sleep each night. Once I get back on track with those changes I will move on to new ones. Wish me luck!

Sorry about your job loss. Saw that you said you haven't been tracking. I adopted the habit of eating only three one-plate meals a day with no snacks, seconds, or sweets on weekdays two years ago. It was the easiest way to keep track of what I ate! Over time, I have evolved guidelines for my meals, too, so I know most of them are in the 300-600 calorie range, though occasionally I will log the food just to be smug about how right I am. If you are intent on weighing pretty low in your BMI range, you might have to be very rigorous, but if you can cut down or reduce the random eating and be honest about how much you really need at a sitting to satisfy yourself until it's time to get hungry for the next meal, you may get down to your goal without much more attention to it. Even with your challenges. Good luck! emoticon

Thanks for enjoying my blog about my new appliances and the house redo. I had been out of town for a few days and want to apologize for not getting back to you sooner. Yes I really do not have any counter or storage. emoticon

Hello Vicki, my "twin" in so many ways,
I have missed you, too!!
I have enjoyed looking at all your pictures today, but you need to plaster your photo walls with some of your quilts for others to enjoy as I did when visiting your lovely cabin!
I miss our times together, especially with so much in common.
Let me know all that is going on in your life, either by phone call or SparkMail. I am going to try to get more involved with Spark again. Was not well for quite a while, but feeling a little better now. Jim has taken good care of me. His brother passed away and it was pretty tough on both of us.
Well, my friend, you keep on keepin' on! I will write you more later.
Love, peace and blessings,
Vicki
