  • And so it begins... again

    1/30/2015 12:28:49 AM, by VANISDGIRL

    I'm sure we can all relate to that title. The constant battle of trying to lose weight over and over again. It's damn hard. But that's my problem; it's too hard and then I give up. I've been overweight my entire adult life and i've dropped weight then picked it up again somewhere along the way.... Read more

    Had small meals yesterday, then binged last night. Ate a whole can of mixed nuts, 1300 calories. Not good! But,,, I still ate within my calorie goal. Went to the grocery store yesterday and bought more varieties of nuts and protein foods, including split peas. They made a great soup for lunch toda... Read more

    1/29/2015 11:34:17 PM, by OCEAN84

    I tried to eat well today but found myself eating things I had no business getting into. Sigh. My knees have really hurt today and I'm really tired to heading to bed. I wanted to at least keep up checking in here. I missed yesterday but I'm here today. One day at a time!... Read more

  • Exercise is my favorite hunger suppressant

    1/29/2015 11:20:24 PM, by OTEMPURA

    I'm not saying this because I actually get hungry a lot, because I don't. At least, not since the first week. I remember in the past when I "dieted" I would end up failing by the end of the first week because I would get hungry and think, "I deserve this food." Then I would eat. I would ... Read more

    Steve did well but today's procedure was all about the location of the kidney stone. In two weeks he will have the lithroscopy(thanks Pat for the heads up on that) and hopefully things will be better. Thanks for the prayers.

Then she found a way to accept herself and the weight came off with very little effort. She has kept if off for 18 years. The first chapter is about Self ... Read more

    1/29/2015 4:20:58 PM, by OKGOATGAL

    That's what I am. Stagnant. Not losing. Not gaining. Just hanging out. Same weight. Same size. Building back to running from my injury in September, so maybe it'll start going away again. On a plus, I got a heating pad from the VA in the mail, to help with the pain, and OH MAN! is it a nice he... Read more

    1/29/2015 4:14:32 PM, by KENTUCKYMEL14

    Weight: 170.0 You know, no matter how much I understand that starting a new exercise routine can show a gain on the scale, it never actually feels any better when I excitedly weigh myself the day after a good workout to see the number go up that I worked so hard to make smaller. I'm not as bumm... Read more

    1/29/2015 3:47:08 PM, by SPINNINGJW

    So, I have a phone interview scheduled. Not sure what I think about the job that this would lead to if they like me. It was advertised as being in Omaha. That could mean anywhere from a 20-45 minute commute. It would mean that Ben would need to develop better independence in a big hurry. Of cou... Read more

  • Balance Your Lifestyle- Don't So Hard You Quit

    1/29/2015 10:35:46 AM, by ~INDYGIRL

    It is hard to eat whole foods all of the time, especially if you aren't home. I find myself compromising outside of my house and sometimes in my house because it is so difficult to convert. It's a process though. I suspect I will never be an all or nothing gal. I lean more toward balance in ever... Read more

It seems hard to believe that some members could have harmed themselves in such ways. We hear about arrests, bankruptcies, loss of family and home, lost jobs, viole... Read more
