Arrgh! - Just finished a meeting with some of the rudest, crankiest, and disingenuous people I know.  So I get back to my desk and my first thought is, "what do I have here to eat?"  Goo...

August 30, 2012 - Well, I've been back on track for 25 days and doing generally good.  I've decided to weigh just on the 1st and 15th of each month.  Part of that is to avoid the pitfalls of diappoi...

Spokane Support Group? - I moved to Spokane last September but can't seem to find a support group except the one that meets once a month for the Rockwood group.  Am I overlooking one? If not, is there i...

support group in Spokane - I've recently moved to Spokane and am a bit disappointed to discover the wls clinic here has just a once a month support group.  Are there any others around that anyone knows of?  ...

May 13, 2011 - Well, I just did an update, but it didn't post.  That's frustrating.  Let's try this again. Here I am again, getting back on track. I've learned that I need to control my enviro...

February 18, 2011 - Still up and down on the scale--very frustrating--but I can tell the difference in my clothes.  So I know things are better but in the one measure, nothing.  So I am tracking my fo...

February 11, 2011 - Ack!  Down two pounds then up one and a half:(.   Okay, what to do?  Need to analyze this;  1) Not getting enough water?  Probably 2) Getting enough protein?  Maybe?  Need to be...

February 7, 2011 - I determined last week that I would not go off my eating plan over the weekend--as I have several weekends now.  So of course that's when my friend Marianne finally calls me about ...

February 2, 2011 - Still working on not being disappointed/driven by the scale.  My "offical" weigh-in day is Friday morning, but I did check again today to see how things are going (over the weekend...

January 31, 2011 - Things have been up and down.  I'm doing decent with the exercise--most days 30 min. or more, but at least 15 min. (in order to meet my Live Healthy Iowa goal).  Tried an elliptica...

January 17, 2011 - Made it through the weekend sticking to my eating plan pretty closely.  I do use Russell Stovers sugar-free candies as my sweet (gotta have some sweets), but I didn't get popcorn a...

January 14, 2011 - I am down 4 pounds from my starting weight.  That's about two pounds a week--nothing stellar, but a good solid loss.  I was expecting more since that has been the pattern in the pa...

January 12, 2011 - It is becomming glaringly obvious that my downfall is sweets.  Even if I limit myself to the "three bite rule," I find later I fall into the, "since I've already...." thinking and ...

January 10, 2011 - Too much d*** snow!  We've had snow most of yesterday, and it is still snowing today.  I think the accumulation is supposed to be between 5 and 9 inches.  I suspect we've already h...

January 21, 2010 - Did my "official" weigh in at the health office, and after one week of the 100 day challenge I am down 5 lbs. to 171.  I weigh less at home, of course, since I weigh before breakfa...
