Feeling better and back to swimming
I had my final Dr appointment and he told me to resume activities, just ease into them. I did go back to my swimming yesterday. I wasn't sure how that was going to feel, but it was ok. I did the crawl and went slower than normal, just kind of... Read more

Unexpected Surgery - Sept 4
All was going good in the morning, I knew I couldn't swim, the pool was closed. I went home to see if there was a message about my wedding rings being done, so I ate some fresh... Read more
I want to reach out today for some support. I have been in a bad frame of mind for about a week now. I thought I'd snap out of it, but this weekend was a total blow out. No exercise (I'm using the excuse it was too hot). I was conscientious ... Read more
Must have been my lucky leopard underwear!
Today was weigh in day for my 6 month bet to lose 10% of my weight! I did it with .8 lbs to spare! I was very happy I made it. It was a hard last month. When I got to work today, I was also told I won 4 hrs of vacation for contributing to th... Read more
Others don't have to, but I do

I'm doing it again
Why is it that when someone compliments me for losing weight, looking so much better, I head straight for food. I start eating everything and anything. It's like my head can't handle the compliment and says "eat a bag of candy" or "eat the who... Read more

Feeling out of sorts today
You know when you have a "different" kind of feeling, like you or something isn't quite right. I feel that way today. I feel ok, have been exercising and eating really good, but something seems to make me kind of on edge today. Maybe it's all... Read more

I am finding out that if you spill 1/2 of your weight loss shake, you will consume only half the calories! ... Read more
Just what I needed!
I have been having a terrible last few weeks, as far as keeping my focus on my weight loss. Oh, it's in my head, but the stress of certain things has really kept me from making the best choices. The "Just what I needed" comes from the best Spa... Read more
This is a first
For the very first time in my life, I took a picture of myself I like. I think this is a HUGE comment, since I've hated how I look my whole life. The picture isn't of my whole body, so that helps! But I am making progress at accepting myself f... Read more
