Companions-week 2

Thursday, May 05, 2016      2 comments

Well, it's been a week and the dog and I have tried. I stayed the same at my weekly weigh-in today and Truff looks no larger. I'm not good with photos, did manage to put one of the dog in my gallery (Less Food, More Exercise, Exhausting) in her ... Read more

Companions on the journey

Monday, May 02, 2016      5 comments

Changing my status on my Spark Page this morning, realized I had not posted a blog since February 29. Wish I could say that in that two months I was 5 pounds lighter and closer to goal. Unfortunately, wishing does not make it so. However, I can ... Read more

Bonus Day

Monday, February 29, 2016      0 comments

Waiting out a "clipper" system passing through northern Michigan right now, quite a contrast to yesterday's spring-like 50 degrees. Read with interest Spark's list of suggested activities for this bonus February day. Not much outdoor activity a... Read more

Squeaked by again

Friday, February 05, 2016      1 comments

Thursdays are my weigh-in days. Weather forced cancellation of our meeting last week, my home scales showed a loss. Apparently I took that as permission to relax food program as I narrowly stayed the same at yesterday's scale encounter. Could it... Read more

Two forward, one back

Friday, January 22, 2016      3 comments

My New Year's momentum experienced a small setback at yesterday's weigh-in with a 3/4 # gain. Would like to blame the high sodium dinner of the night before, but in reality took several liberties with my food program during the week and it caugh... Read more

September goals

Tuesday, September 01, 2015      2 comments

Actually, this blog is about more than September goals, although I've set some and hope to follow through. Several of the blogs I've read lately have really provided good food for thought. I could plug myself into any one of them and report the ... Read more

Today was better

Tuesday, August 18, 2015      4 comments

Thanks to all who encouraged me when I wrote yesterday about my evening splurge. Today I was still not certain I would stay within range. My granddaughters are staying with me without their parents for the first time since I've been by myself. W... Read more

Sabotage strikes again

Monday, August 17, 2015      6 comments

After productive day with many positives could not limit dinner and ended up over calorie range. Cannot blame stress. Once again, as soon as we think we have it figured out, we don't. Hoping to get to bedtime with just water. Tomorrow another da... Read more

Time moving too quickly

Friday, August 14, 2015      1 comments

Having hit yet another "maintenance mode" in my weight loss journey I decided perhaps it was time to blog again. Could not believe that I had not written since November, 2014. Today's weather a far cry from that day as we have sun, high humidity... Read more

Another Week Another Pound

Thursday, November 20, 2014      1 comments

We're experiencing early winter driving conditions here in northern Michigan. I debated about whether to drive the 10 miles to my weigh-in, but the sun was shining so decided to chance it. I was rewarded with a 1# loss which made me happy I went... Read more

No Days Off

Friday, November 14, 2014      3 comments

Missed my weight loss group a week ago yesterday because I was traveling. It seems like each time that happens, I experience a small gain. Frustrating to me, since I have years of experience in this battle, and it seems that I should be able "to... Read more

5K Hike

Monday, November 03, 2014      3 comments

DS#1 visiting for a couple of days. He has lost a total of 95 pounds, working hard at the gym and giving up processed and fast food. Today he decided we should hike a 3.1 mile loop on state land near here. They probably call it rolling terrain, ... Read more

Could Have Been Worse

Thursday, October 30, 2014      4 comments

Although I fell short of my goal of losing weight for 2nd week in a row, I did score a very solid "stayed the same." As I think back over my week and look at my food diary, I was probably lucky to achieve that. I was not as conscientious about m... Read more

Finally left the fractions behind

Thursday, October 23, 2014      4 comments

I've been coasting along with 1/4 pound losses, gains, for awhile now. Decided to get serious this past week and lost 2.25 at weigh-in today. Was top loser in my little weight loss group. Now to keep momentum going. It was not rocket science. Pr... Read more

Another Quarter

Friday, October 17, 2014      3 comments

Still squeaking by here, lost 1/4 at weigh-in yesterday. I remain active as I tackle the autumn outdoor chores, but apparently feel that the activity gives me license to eat more heartily. I am reminding myself that holidays will soon be upon us... Read more
