Metabolism Change after all these Years???
Do you think it is possible? Do you think my metabolism has actually changed after all these years?
My whole life, if I went to a picnic and ate anything, I would gain 5 lbs. and then have a terrible time losing it. These last 9 days I ate w... Read more
April 8th to July 4th, a long time!!!
Having lost 48 lbs. in one year on Spark People, I was a bit discouraged that I hadn't lost 50 and reached goal. After all, I lost steadily without plateaus so assumed those last two lbs. would be off in no time. I just flippantly set my goal ... Read more

Should I Shake Up My Eating Plan???
I have just been thinking. Might I lose these last two lbs. if I shake up my eating plan? Maybe I need to follow another plan or just do something drastic. As it is right now, it will be all I can do to maintain at 1150 to 1450 calories a day... Read more

LONG, TIRING DAY
It has been a long, tiring day, especially for Chuck who spent much of it with excruciating pain. Doctor is not very optimistic about the adhesions breaking up enough to give him the mobility he should have. Surgery to remove the adhesions is ... Read more

Actually, it is the evening before.....before Chuck has a knee manipulation at 6 AM in the hospital across the street from our hotel. I am using the hotel computer tonight because I installed Norton on one of mine today and I can't get it to wo... Read more
Day 2 with NO SWEETS!!!
Day 2 with no sweets and even though I seemed to eat all I desired, I ended day with 970 calories, so added 1 glass soymilk with 1 Tbsp. Hershey's Syrup. Maybe I should also eat a Tbsp. Peanut Butter to get some counts higher for the day since ... Read more
I DID IT!!! A NO SWEETS DAY!
I DID IT and feel good about it. Wasn't even tempted to cheat and eat sweets. But today has been a different kind of day. I rarely feel down, but today I did. Chuck's knee is at a standstill, or I should say, he has regressed and can't even ... Read more
