I Missed Out

In January, my sisters and I signed up to do a 20 Mile Bike Ride. I had 7 months to get in shape. I didn't do it. I work in a school so I've been off work since June 10th. I should have been riding my bicycle every day. I didn't do it. ... Read more
I'm Happy
Friday, July 28, 2017      16 comments

I lost 4 pounds this month. I'm happy with that. Some day I'd like to be able to say that I've lost 100 pounds. "What?" I need to lose how much weight? That's enough to make me run to the nearest McDonald's! I don't know JAMES,... Read more

Building My Confidence
Monday, July 03, 2017      10 comments

My confidence has been shattered. I've started to believe that "I can't" lose weight and "I can't" make exercise a habit and "I can't" stick with any of my commitments. I can do anything for the short-term, but it hasn't become a lifestyle for... Read more

Truly Radiant
Saturday, April 22, 2017      5 comments

I heard this on a commercial... "I want to be truly radiant. How about you?" It made me smile and I wrote the line down in my journal. Then I looked up the definition of radiant. 1. Bright and shining. 2. Someone who is radi... Read more
Exercise Mind Trick
Tuesday, April 18, 2017      10 comments

I picked up a new book at the library tonight. I can't wait to read it. I was thinking... too bad I don't look forward to exercising as much as I look forward to reading. Mind Trick! It's an audiobook and I can only listen to it w... Read more

Beautiful Women
Sunday, April 09, 2017      16 comments

I went out to dinner with my girlfriends. We're all, how to say it nicely, big women. We're also fun, happy, generous, loving, sisters, daughters, mothers, so much more than our weight. We dress well and look good. Of course, during dinn... Read more
Talking Back to Myself
Saturday, April 08, 2017      8 comments

Yesterday, I posted a blog about Date Night and cooking at home instead of going out. I was tempted to stop for fast food on my way home (this is a big temptation when I'm tired at the end of the day), but I stuck to my plan. I did have a ... Read more
Date Night
Friday, April 07, 2017      7 comments

I went out last night with girlfriends to an Italian restaurant. It was a high calorie meal and a very good time. We splurged and had dessert. Friday night is traditionally date night. DH and I usually go out for dinner. It's nice to ha... Read more
