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
WooHoo! Back for a second day!
YAY! I am back today! My second day back. I was able to stay mostly on track yesterday. I gave in about 8:00 last night and ate one cup of cereal (without milk) for an additional 130 calories, so that isn't too bad. Especially considering my... Read more
Sigh...trying again to restart!!!
I am a stress eater. The more stress I have, the more I eat, and the less I want to do. Long story short, my 6 and 7 (now 7 and 8) year old grandsons came to live with me the beginning of June. It has been a tremendous financial strain on me... Read more
Only Positive Thoughts!
And so I have slid back, but not too much and still have managed over the last 6 months to not gain any more than 10 lbs since my grandsons came to live with me. I have developed an allergy to peanut butter. I laugh at that now, because I have... Read more
Hola Spark People! It has been three weeks since I signed on last. Here it is a couple of days before Christmas, and I just wanted to say Merry Christmas to all of you. I pray you have a wonderful holiday with your family and friends. I'm he... Read more
It was...back in September!
September 24th was the last day I logged in and blogged. I thought I would begin again then getting healthier. Yet here it is December 1st, and I have gained 5 more pounds. I know depression is getting the better of me. I love having the bo... Read more
Trying to climb back on the WAGON!!
I have been away from keeping food entries, journal entries, walking, EVERYTHING has turned upside down since I have had the boys. I wouldn't change it for anything, I love having them here. I now have a purpose I never knew that I would have ... Read more
Living in a log cabin in a national forest, I have had a plethora of assorted insects to pester me. Lately, it has been wasps. I had them last year, but this year it is even worse. Every time we open and close the gate, it disturbs wasps tha... Read more
Those were the days my friends
Well, I cannot believe I have not logged my food intake for so long nor blogged since July 11th. I miss all of my Spark friends. I will try to stop in to your page sometime in the next few days (those I interact with on a regular basis) and se... Read more
DAY 192 of 2014: I'm still here!
I am missing my Spark friend interaction. I have been so busy with the kids, and now my son has moved in too, and just no time at all for getting on or even keeping track of my food. I am leaving for a week vacation at the beach in the morning... Read more
DAY 185 of 2014: Half way through the year
I just realized that half way through the year is 183 days, and I missed that fact. But I have not missed the fact that I have not accomplished one single step towards my weight loss or exercise goal this year. You cannot imagine how depressed... Read more
DAY 184 of 2014: More blessings in sight?
So happy that my son came yesterday to live here. Having not raised him, and never having children himself, he is eerily similar to me in his ideas of discipline and what is wrong and right, which makes things go much smoother than I anticipate... Read more
DAY 183 of 2014: Need to get REAL exercise...somehow
Since I've had the kids, I haven't been able to go out and walk, plus no time to exercise. Living in such a small place, there is no room inside to exercise and since I live 20 miles to any exercise facility, it is not financially effective to ... Read more
DAY 182 of 2014: Oh that darn Spark Tracker!!!
My Spark tracker has a mind of its own, it grows legs and walks away. However, the one time it needs to think for itself, it decides to act like an inanimate object and jump in the washing machine along with my shorts. Good thing is, it surviv... Read more
DAY 181 of 2014: Marathon runners and commitment
I am connected, through Facebook, with several people from my high school graduating class (plus a few from a year ahead of me and a year below me). One of the guys that I am friends with is an Ironman competitor. He does extremely well at it ... Read more
