  • Take It to the Limit

    3/31/2015 5:06:13 AM, by FEEDTHEHUNGER

    As I reflect on the lessons I’ve learned over the years while attempting to lose weight, no idea seems more compelling to me than the idea of establishing and maintaining limits or boundaries. Here is a brief review of the difference I’ve seen over the past few years: My Past Behavior: ... Read more

  • Perfect food day

    3/31/2015 2:59:34 AM, by KGWINDER

    Having a perfect food day is hard to do on CR - this is where without vitamins your nutrition tracks out to proper levels in all areas. It was a busy day and dodged with healthy choices a fast food trip (just got the patty) and another lunch out (steamed vegetables and chicken). I got all I need f... Read more

  • Blog 3 - Goal for the next Month - Time Management Skills

    3/31/2015 2:19:33 AM, by IMOFF2DLOONYBIN

    On Sunday I went to the local botanical gardens with my niece. We walked around for about an hour. Lots of fun and exercise! Woo hoo! So I've realized lately my time management skills have kind of sucked. I keep not getting everything done that I need to, but it's not like my schedule is ... Read more

    3/30/2015 10:43:12 PM, by ERIN8482

    Today was a regular day. Nothing too special. I was higher on the calorie range for some reason but still within goal. Now that I have lost my ring and am starting to wear smaller size clothes it's really altering my perception of how much I've lost. I know I've dropped a significant amount... Read more

  • You Do It To Yourself

    3/30/2015 9:07:34 PM, by KRISTA987

    It's funny how differently people treat you once you've lost weight. For instance, people feel the need to make excuses to me. Almost daily I get to hear why they can't go to the gym, or eat healthy. It's funny because I don't even ask. I'm not judging them, but some reason they feel obligated to ma... Read more

    3/30/2015 5:07:13 PM, by K8TERTOTS

    Lost more! I was down another # this morning, I tracked it on Sparkpeople even though today isn't my official weigh in day because it makes me happy. Yesterday I killed it on cardio day - something like 75 min and 800-something calories, and then matched it today with my leg + Cardio workout so that... Read more

    3/30/2015 4:09:39 PM, by EAGLEKEEPERZ

    I had been fooling myself. I was living to be what i thought was happy and treating myself for being a good person. Allergies made it tough to enjoy the outdoors without a mask as my asthma was out of control. Exercise also slowed to a 'need to go' basis. Then I had an asthma attack that would not c... Read more

    The last time we saw the female Red Tail Hawk was March 15th. She was sitting by the nest. After the 15th we didn't see her. We thought either she is in the nest, or something happened to her.
