    I woke up to the sound of pouring rain this morning. I love the sound of pouring rain and thunder. There is something so soothing and cleansing about it. I snuggled into the blankets a bit and tried to enjoy the moment. Live in that one moment before the day started. Appreciate it and just listen ... Read more

    I have never been a fan of roller coasters. Just like everyone, I like the thrill and fear of coming down, but its the going up that I cant stand. Same can be said of my weight. Which has been stuck on a roller coaster for about 2 years now. But its not one of them big wild twisting upside do... Read more

    I feel as though I have hit a brick wall. Perhaps it is the proverbial rock bottom. It has come to the point where I can not stand myself. It was suggested in a Spark article that writing a blog about your journey might be helpful. This one is not heading in a very positive direction. I am ... Read more

    Today I woke up and checked facebook while sipping my coffee to find STUNNING photos of my best friend. She did a photo shoot with a photographer friend of hers, just for fun I guess. The results are so amazing! The raw essence of her comes through in such a powerful way. Her photos give her a sense... Read more

    I did really good yesterday after a bad week. I listen to some advise on here and made me a priority. Ate right, took a walk , cleaned my home, sat with the kids to do home work and then said "NO" to my family who wanted us to come over. I had to find a way to balance my stuff. It was a great day....

    The battery on my scale has been dead for a few weeks so I haven't been able to weight myself....I decided to put on a pair of jeans this morning that were too tight last time I tried them on. I was prepared to take them right back off, knowing that would still be the case. I slid those puppies on a... Read more

    I have just been really down for about a month now, but I think I'm snapping back from it. Depression has cursed me all my life, and although it is mostly under control, thanks to meds, every so often it really hits me again. You'll be hearing more from me now.... Read more

    This is reality. It is the COLD, HARD, UGLY truth of what happened to me and I am sharing it with you in the hope that if you have a child that is overweight or if you are overweight you will listen to my story and not follow my path. I graduated from high school in 1977 and my weight was 105 poun... Read more

    I think I may need Mari Hulman George to be my daily wake up call: "LADY, START YOUR ENGINE!!" The past few days my body seems to be running slower than normal. I've been trying to give it the proper fuel and maintenance, but it still seems to be spark knocking a bit. Since trading it in... Read more

    Well, today I'm starting a new job. Looking forward to it, but a little nervous at the same time. It will get me out of the house more which will be better for my health.

    I am going to try a new method of keeping myself accountability. I am going to log the day before completion. A second way of showing my progress to myself.

    I really enjoy riding the bike thing to warm up...but the leg presses are ok with both legs but really hard with only 1 leg. Then there is the stretching it's not bad on the lit 30% incline but the stepping up and down off a 8" deep step (with your new knee) is hard work. Then of course there is t... Read more
