  • Looking for some motivation

    10/21/2014 8:45:18 AM, by JANET552

    I have lost my motivation. I'm sure it is some where amidst the chaos of being a care giver for others. Unlike working at a job, the stress from care giving makes me feel that I am not in control. And that's exactly how I am behaving. So... I am planning to follow the ideas from the "30... Read more

  • Like A Natural Woman

    10/21/2014 8:04:10 AM, by FEEDTHEHUNGER

    Some people are lucky enough to be disciplined in their eating naturally. They don't think about it too much -- they just naturally stop eating when full and prefer healthier options, again quite naturally and unconsciously. I am not one of those people either genetically or because I wrecke... Read more

  • Better is Better

    10/20/2014 9:22:33 PM, by CUTENHEALTHY

    I came across the phrase, "better is better" on someone else's blog. I really like it. It helps me calm down about weight loss. I'm post 40, so I move a little slower these days. I get injured more easily now. I know I need to get stronger and more fit day by day. It will take time. I'm proud t... Read more

  • On a slow train to nowhere

    10/20/2014 9:21:57 PM, by MUSIC2HISEARS

    I've been sparking for about 6 years now. One of the things that I've been proud of is losing 50 lbs in one year. However, the scale has started to creep upward, and I've gained back almost 20 lbs of that 50 back. I'm stuck in a rut and I don't know how to get out of it. Sure, fitness has falle... Read more

    10/20/2014 8:52:18 PM, by BLUEJEDIBUBBLES

    So I've been swimming laps in the pool at the Y. Really enjoying it. I'm doing 4 laps-from one end of the pool and back-4 times before I stop and catch my breath. I'm still very, very slow. Thinking of taking up Racquet ball again on the days I don't swim-Tuesdays and Thursdays. Of course m... Read more

    A lot of my clothes are needing to be changed. My XL sweatpants are too big. I need to get at least a large. Every once in a while I'm having to pull up my sweatpants because they want to slide down. I need to get new jeans because the two pair that I have are 22W and I need to wear a belt with them...

    10/20/2014 5:21:20 PM, by HOLLYM48

    On Sunday, we had a few errands to run, laundry to do and groceries to buy so I knew we couldn't do a big walk, but I looked at the lake in Minneapolis that is quite popular and decided to go there for our walk on Sunday. Here are a few pics from that and then a walk around our neighborhood. <... Read more

  • No more eating out!

    10/20/2014 5:13:47 PM, by CZESTES

    In order to properly log our food and lose weight, we stopped eating out. The whole house decided to do this back in April. For the most part, we have stuck to it. There have been a few times that we were unable to stick to that plan and thought every now and then wouldn't hurt. Boy have we been... Read more
