Squeaked by again

Thursday, August 28, 2014

My goal for today's weigh in was not to have gained weight during our vacation last week. Actually lost 1/4 pound over the 2-week period since last weigh-in, so was pleased. Now to set some goals for September and hopefully make that scale number a little lower.

Pictured Beauty

Tuesday, August 26, 2014




Even overcast, cool weather couldn't dull the beauty of the Pictured Rocks and waterfalls we hiked to last week in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

I have plenty of beautiful woods to hike closer to home, but the week with my family was truly special. Granddaughters were troopers. They not only had energy to hike to this waterfall, but climbed sand dunes the next stop.

    I just could not pass up commenting on this NANA2PRINCESSES's. I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, roughly about 70 to 75 miles from Pictured Rocks. Our Great Nephew got married on Miners Beach at Pictured Rocks in Munising on August 13th. I took a lot of pictures that day. I will post a few on my Spark page for youor anyone else to see. It is a beautiful scenic spot. I'm glad you had a wonderful time with your Grand daughters. emoticon

It Pays to Lose

Friday, August 15, 2014

Last week I had a great weigh-in with a 2-3/4 pound loss. I'm usually lucky to have lost at all, and then only in fractions of a pound. The trick was keeping it off until yesterday's weigh-in. (Our small weight loss group rewards that feat with a small monetary stipend). Squeaked by with a 1/2 pound loss, and collected my $3.

Next week I am on vacation with my kids and grandkids. My goal is not to lose my forward progress and perhaps add another 1/2 pound loss when I weigh-in 2 weeks from yesterday. The vacation house we're renting has a very well equipped kitchen and a good food market is close by so see no obstacles to keeping on program. Looking forward to the break.

  That's wonderful. You will be active while on vacation. Just remember to watch your portions and your vacation will not be the cause of a gain.

Finally a step forward

Friday, July 18, 2014

After three weeks of staying the same and gaining at weigh-in, finally recorded a loss yesterday. It reflected some effort on my part, had been just coasting and not really paying attention to portions and healthy choices. Journaling is still the most effective tool for me, not only for food recording but for getting some sort of control over emotional eating sessions. Now the test is to keep the progress going.

Very Squeaky Turtle

Friday, June 27, 2014

Whew! Escaped a gain at yesterday's weigh-in with a very Squeaky Turtle. Expected better, but had a few late evening extras and lunch out on Wednesday. Back to it today, journaling, working outside, even a little house cleaning, not one of my favorite things. Next Thursday hope to have that scale arm hitting the bottom with some force.

    Sometimes the turtle is better for weight loss. Take it one day at the time. Eating out can hurt. I have had many lunches out lately.
