    7/30/2015 6:09:22 PM, by TME4ME

    What do you do when you see a very overweight woman coming towards you? Not just overweight, obese. Morbidly obese. If she lost 100 pounds she would still be overweight. Do you offer a tender smile and keep walking? Do you say hello and try to start a conversation? Do you avert eye contact a... Read more

  • July 29 - Fence finale

    7/29/2015 10:09:16 PM, by JUDITH1654

    It looks like I'm not going to get 100% satisfaction on the fence issue. Oh, they'll remove the excess fence panels and are willing to remove the 24 month deferred interest on the payments BUT they say there is no profit available to deduct $400 from my total bill. Yeah, right. Since when do ... Read more

  • We ran a 5k!

    7/24/2015 11:34:12 AM, by NETSUE64

    It’s still so hard to believe we ran a 5k! I never EVER thought it would be possible. About a year ago, after I got married, I mentioned to my husband that I felt like we should step up our exercise a bit and maybe try a couch to 5k program. This was after I was out for a walk and a car was com... Read more

  • July 23 - Lab Results

    7/23/2015 10:14:33 PM, by JUDITH1654

    Good news! The test results showed my rheumatoid as normal, so I don't have the arthritis. I really didn't think I did but I'm no doctor so wasn't sure. I think it's simply a case of repetitive movement causing pain and inflammation to my muscles that are used daily for eight hours a day. An... Read more

    7/21/2015 3:18:28 PM, by JUDITH1654

    I am happy to report that per the doctor, my blood pressure is down and my weight shows a three pound loss. Not great for three months but with bad knees and back, exercise is difficult. If I had a swimming pool, I would take advantage of that.... Read more

  • July 20 - Medical Update

    7/20/2015 11:02:25 PM, by JUDITH1654

    For years, I've had foot, ankle and hip problems, but I've always attested it to my inflamed knee that I've lived with since '03 and I knew since getting diabetes, the foot pain was a direct result. Unfortunately, since I work on my feet for seven to nine hours, the frequency and severity of the pa... Read more

  • Day 8 I made it through the 1st Birthday!

    7/20/2015 7:17:44 AM, by LORI815

    This weekend was my oldest son's 19th birthday! How time flies! Seems like just yesterday I was sitting up with him singing song's from Pebble and the Penguin trying to get him to go to sleep. LOL! Anyway, when I started this diet, I wasn't thinking about the things that were going to be goi... Read more

  • Day 6: The art of self sabotage

    7/18/2015 8:26:37 AM, by LORI815

    I am a true artist of self sabotage. I was sitting here this morning and looking in the café at titles of posts that others wrote and thought to myself "I wonder if anyone else does this"? Every few years I go into what I call my weight loss mode. I'll start dieting, working out, tracking ... Read more

    7/17/2015 7:08:59 PM, by LORI815

    I have made it through a whole week...Yeah! I have kept up with my water intake, I have tracked my food intake...I just haven't gotten to the exercise portion of the holy triad of weight loss. I did sneak a peek at the scale this morning and it showed that I was at 218. 244 4lbs! Ok, I'm sure ... Read more

  • July 16 - Continuing Saga

    7/16/2015 8:25:52 PM, by JUDITH1654

    Been worried all day about events from yesterday. When I got home, I asked my son if he had noticed how much blood was around the stump. He said the same thought occurred to him. After going outside, he came back and told me they lied...that not only was there no blood but the stump hadn't ... Read more

  • Day 4

    7/16/2015 3:32:28 PM, by LORI815

    Not a whole lot going on right now. I did fairly well yesterday with what I ate however, I'm still going over so I really have to watch my numbers! I still haven't put in the exercise so I signed up for a 30 day challenge. I'm going to try really hard to follow this through. 104 That's the pl... Read more

    7/16/2015 12:57:12 AM, by JUDITH1654

    The installers came out to re-do the fence but in the process of trying to remove a tree trunk (which he shouldn't have been doing), he cut his hand and ended up at the hospital. Don't know what will happen from here.... Read more

    7/15/2015 2:16:35 PM, by LORI815

    Yesterday I still didn't get in an additional exercise. I know what I'm going to start out with but I'm not sure where it's going to happen. The upstairs is not conducive to bouncing. (Heck sometimes walking sounds like an earthquake or a herd of elephants) but the basement, which would be perfec... Read more

    7/14/2015 1:05:13 PM, by LORI815

    Ok, there were a few stumbles yesterday. I didn't get my exercise in...kept thinking about it, but never did it. However, I did manage to get in all my water and stayed (for the most part) within the range that I was looking for regarding my food intake. Baby steps..that's what it's all about. I... Read more

  • July 14 - Fixed...supposedly

    7/14/2015 12:55:35 PM, by JUDITH1654

    After leaving calls for both the fence company and the rep last night, by almost noon today, I still hadn't heard back from either one of them. So I finally just called the rep myself, who then called me back after speaking with the fence installation company. According to them, they had left me a... Read more

  • July 13 - The fence is installed...sort of

    7/13/2015 7:35:20 PM, by JUDITH1654

    They installed it backwards!!!! Really??? I thought everyone knew that the person paying for the fence got the smooth side. Besides, I specifically instructed that I wanted the vertical slats on the neighbor's side so my Husky couldn't use them as a step-ladder to climb the fence!!! Having... Read more

  • Monday Part Deux

    7/13/2015 3:13:44 PM, by LORI815

    I just read my first post of 2015 and thought, dang...I sound depressed. I want to be up beat about my journey. It's going to be rough and there are going to be obstacles but I will get through this. I started my journey here years ago. When I first started, I was full of hope and ready to take ... Read more

  • Not just another Monday

    7/13/2015 8:02:08 AM, by LORI815

    It is Monday morning. It is raining cats and dogs and here I sit trying to figure out how to motivate myself to get up and get going. Most days I feel like I'm on auto pilot. I'm tired of trying to squeeze myself into clothing that "used" to fit. I'm tired of trying to hide myself in larger clot... Read more

  • July 9 - Still waiting

    7/9/2015 8:58:29 PM, by JUDITH1654

    The new fence was supposed to have been installed this past Tuesday, but rain delayed the work so it was moved to tomorrow. Then, I received a call yesterday saying the rain caused another delay and now it will be Monday before they can install the fence. Guess I should have let them install the t... Read more

    My 14 years old GD was baptized today! it was a beautiful thing and my son (her father) and my DD were there also. She had planned on getting baptized last week, but I think she had made a mistake because no one knew about it, not us, not the church, only her:) I'm glad she was mistaken, because tod... Read more
