Maybe a sundress?
Bodies can be so different from person to person. I have chunky fat legs which I hate. My sisters are the same weight as me, yet their legs do not look like mine; they have nice tapered legs. And I have granny arms, which I also hate. It is ... Read more
Heard from my daughter today that her live-in boyfriend asked her to get married. I can't decide whether or not I am happy about this. On one hand, I am happy because she is the daughter with three kids and it creates a more stable environment... Read more
I am having my porch screened in FINALLY! I have had such a difficult time finding someone to do it. Where I live are a lot of "don't want to do anything" contractors and they don't show up when they are supposed to, don't call, no insurance, ... Read more
Mama Won't Fly
Did something for me today. Really had to force myself to do it too. After church, I met a friend and we went to see a play at the local theater called "Mama Won't Fly" and then to dinner. Was almost my week's food allowance, but I haven't tr... Read more
Beautiful Saturday in the mountains
I didn't do much today. The power went out for about an hour or so, so I sat and crocheted. I did walk a little farther this morning. The dogs were happy to be out walking on such a beautiful day. I love when it starts feeling like fall, and... Read more
Day Back Two: Feeling more optimistic
Woke up feeling optimistic and definitely in a better mood. I can do this! Was able to stay on track yesterday and so far today. Making a meal and snack plan helps me tremendously!! I stopped at the grocery store two days ago and bought a "m... Read more
How to get back on track??!!
So, I haven't been on track whatsoever since my last blog entry. I have been totally lazy and indulgent. I'm trying to make today the day I will get back on track. I have gained almost all the weight back I lost, starting today at 186. Have ... Read more
Oh my knee my knee
I haven't a clue what I did. I can't remember being on my knees, I only have three stairs on the outside of my cabin. But I woke up Saturday morning and my knee was hurting. By yesterday morning (Sunday), I couldn't walk at all. I couldn't e... Read more

I wish I had long legs
I wish I had a longer neck and no double chin
I wish I could have a breast reduction
I wish my hair didn't look like a French poodle
I wish my knees and shoulders didn't hurt so I could exerc... Read more
Every Saturday lately I have been waking up with the song in my head: "Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody..." lol. There are lots of single women that have retired and moved up here, but there are hardly any single men. Sure would... Read more
The rest of my life
I really do need to commit to a change for the rest of my life. I used having my grandsons with me for 17 months as an excuse to eat poorly. Truth is, I was stressed and that is a trigger for me to overeat. Now I have to readjust my mindset a... Read more
Third day back is a charm!
Praising God that He helped me overcome temptation to eat bad today!!! I returned to starting my day with a devotional, and that seems to really be helping. My weekly "Lifegroup" meeting with a few ladies from my church was today. We always e... Read more
Commitment is returning!
I am so excited because I can FEEL my commitment returning! I may have reached the high point of my calories and nutrition yesterday, but at least I didn't go over!!! My niece gave me a dozen of these wonderful HUGE pecan pralines for Christma... Read more
Jan 6th and haven't even tried since August. At all. Very ashamed of myself, but I did manage to log all of my food today even if I didn't get out to walk, which is monumental for me. I thankfully still have not gained more than 20 of the 40 ... Read more
August 5th and I haven't done anything since February to try and get on track. I have been extremely stressed and extremely depressed and extremely off-track. I have gained a total of 20 pounds back to what I lost, which, in itself, is very de... Read more
