  • Struggling with motivation

    9/2/2014 1:35:59 PM, by DRAGON-CHICK

    I'm not really sure why this is so hard! I do really want to lose weight. Why? - I worry about my long term health. - Buying plus sizes is not fun. - I hate looking at pics of myse... Read more

  • Messed this day up!

    9/1/2014 10:36:19 PM, by MM11113

    I went out to lunch with my best fiend, and did the Olive Garden get a meal to take home. I was doing OK calorie-wise, I only ate half of the serving, but I am really hungry. So, I ate a piece of pie, I think I needed to get it out of the house! So, even though my stomach is growling, I think... Read more

  • Work in Progress

    I'm not sure I'll have a condo you can walk through after I empty the laundry room, master bath and closet. My knee is feeling it from all the trips up stairs and you can't walk through the loft or my grandson's bedroom. Good thing he is away at school. And, I'm not done. Where am I going to... Read more

  • Detox Time!! (Again)

    8/30/2014 11:09:35 AM, by DRAGON-CHICK

    Last week wasn'tů Well, let's just say I didn't make the best food choices for my long term health. Today is the first day of a lovely three-day weekend! It's NOT an excuse to eat crappy ... Read more

  • One of my goals is not good enough anymoe

    8/30/2014 9:21:51 AM, by MM11113

    Everyday, I seem to stare at my goal board, and as I meet them, or they don't seem to motivate me anymore, I modify the goals. A big one had been for me to finish off the Honda Weight. It's not that Honda made me gain, it's just that since I started there 24 years ago, I put on about 65 pounds... Read more

  • College Costs

    8/29/2014 7:55:17 PM, by MM11113

    Today, I went to OU to buy the fall semester text books. My grandson had prepared me for a calculus book that was over $200. But when going through the checkout, the paperback on Oceanography was over $260. And, it wasn't even a fat paperback! I believe in education, but these kids are being... Read more

  • Flickr frustration

    8/28/2014 10:18:34 PM, by MM11113

    I joined the photography team and finally I am trying to do the homework assignments. I don't understand the part where after you upload your photos, and you make an album, how do you sent the link to friends for the album. I think I am sending the link to my upload area. Anyway, I get do... Read more

  • Summer Heat and Humidity

    8/27/2014 6:12:00 PM, by MM11113

    We have had a week of nothing but hot and humid. After the storms tonight, we are supposed to have a little relief. I'm good with that! ... Read more

  • Nothing much

    8/26/2014 11:24:36 PM, by MM11113

    I see the blog line is back in the tracker, and as a person who has spent the last 42 years in data processing pursuits, I know how hard it is to catch everything when testing new releases. I'll give them a break, and I tested yesterday to see that yes, you did get your points if you blogged. ... Read more

  • Never giving up!

    8/26/2014 9:03:31 AM, by DRAGON-CHICK

    It's been a really difficult summer. Life has tossed me a bunch of curve balls. But I'm doing ok. I've got some close friends and family with health issues, and I've lost a few people... Read more

  • Hello again!

    8/25/2014 11:05:04 PM, by KIMMIEB

    I am back. I have been struggling again. Got started in September of last year and have lost 25 pounds since then and 7 inches. Fell off the wagon and gained 8 of the 25 back :( I am doing the Beachbody workouts and I love them. Just still trying to get remotivated.... Read more

  • Progress

    8/25/2014 9:43:42 PM, by MM11113

    I am glad I remembered to do this. I believe I need to retire my current belt. It was purchased before I figured out I needed to get serious about losing weight. So, as I grew smaller, I punched a new hole as needed. ... Read more

  • Had to find a way

    8/25/2014 9:25:41 PM, by MM11113

    I read about the frustration of losing ability to earn points from doing a blog. I decided to test if that was true, and I had to do a lot of clicking to find an alternate way of making the blog for my test. But I found it. You have to be pretty bored to decide to do this. I really miss my g... Read more

  • Sophomore

    8/23/2014 7:39:59 PM, by MM11113

    I am proud to report that this year, he packed and loaded all by himself, and he only forgot the Ethernet cable. I'll probably break down and take it to him, but not this weekend. Of course, I have to find it first, and the room was less than orderly, although way better than last year. I bro... Read more

  • Closest yet to my targets

    8/20/2014 11:02:53 PM, by MM11113

    I'm sure most of us run the nutrition feedback report. I do every day and always tell myself there must be a way to reduce the fat intake and not be hungry. So I decided to eliminate my traditional breakfast that is the symbol of this change. I ate a croissant, bacon, egg and cheese sandwich ... Read more

  • New Team

    8/18/2014 8:13:21 PM, by MM11113

    I thought that there may be some more things to learn, and I'm looking through what the teams are doing. Particularly interesting is the one for organizing and cleaning out. I have given myself goals around that subject, and I hope to find the secret. Wish me luck!... Read more

  • Block buster week

    8/16/2014 8:24:56 AM, by MM11113

    I don't know if anyone can understand what makes us have changes in motivation levels. I read a motivation article every day, and sometimes I get the opposite feelings, like, WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? Then the light bulb comes on. Most of the people I see every day are very over weight. The guy... Read more

    My ten day waiting period for removing the tape from my surgery is over, and I am now able to take a shower with my head in the water. The nurse told me to get the tape completely wet, and it would come off very easily. And, she was absolutely right. I was surprised at how good the skin looks... Read more
