Eating - I'm going to have to stop sometime

Here's another nugget of information I learned early on...I'm going to have to stop eating sometime.  

For most of my life I overate.  I wanted to keep eating and eating until that magical…

Almost Over

Well friends 2014 is almost to a close.  Hard to believe isn't it.  And so I reflect:

These were the goals I had set in January for 2014.

  • "Finding My Beautiful" -- Big picture is I still need to loose 60#s as I continue to learn and grown from the inside out.  I  think the biggest thing is to become a healthy eater most all of the time.  Not just sometimes and not just for a couple of weeks.  I believe the days of giving up and throwing in the towel are done.  At least I…

Lessons Learned - It's hard being the one who changes

One thing I came across that my therapist told me right from the beginning of treatment is that it's really hard to be the one who is changing.  There's a dynamic that exists within all relationships and it is resistant to change.  She wasn't wrong.  I had to be really strong and brave…

Grateful. But Not Happy.

Does that make me a rotten person?


Not that long ago I had a pretty good life.  Amazing family and friends.  Good health.  Good job.  Two and a half years ago I got re-married and took on five step kids.  Two of them live with me full time.  I am so grateful that my husband and his kids are in my life.  Honestly I am.  But I am starting to see that my entire world revolves around him and his kids needs while me, my kids, and our needs have been pushed to the…

2014--A Year in Review

One of the things I like best about blogging is that I can look back and see not only what I was doing, but how I was feeling at any point in time. The end of the year is a natural time to look back over the past year and see all that has happened. I've had a lot of fun looking back on moments and memories I forgot even happened. Here are some highlights:

January: In January I started working for Weight Watchers as…

I've been lazy.

So I got really busy at work and I haven't been exercising because work was so exhausting in itself. I'm low on my steps and now I'm sick. I came down with a sinus infection but considering I haven't had one since May I think I'm doing pretty good. Usually I get them every couple of months. 

Regardless of lack of exercising I've been very productive today and I'm still going. I cleared off my desk and my computer is up and running again (we'll see how long it lasts) and I hung…

No change.

I did  my weekly weigh in and it was the same as last week. Even though I felt like I would see a loss as my jeans seem to be a tiny bit looser than they have been. But it is all good. I did not over indulge with the holiday which is a first for me in a very long time. I did have homemade cookies and richer than average foods, but I kept it within reason. I have been kind of depressed. Maybe it is the holidays, maybe it is the…

I Am Grateful

It's no secret.  I have had a tough year.  And then some.  I wasn't really sure what this day was going to hold for me as I had some mixed feelings going into it but as we started our day I realized how grateful I am that we are still all here together.  Tough times and all.


Now here is to being in a much better place this time next year!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

A wish for many blessings to be upon each of you this day and throughout the new year. 

Isaiah 9:6 - For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.


Just a little update.  My scale is up a bit.  I was down 6#s until two weeks ago.  I'm back up now since our birthday celebrations started and now see to just keep going and…

Merry Christmas

I can not believe it is Christmas again. Every year goes faster it seems. Typically I would put down the diet at the holidays, but I don't want to this year. Breakfast went well & I hope to keep it going as I do not want to see a gain this week's weigh in. Since we are not going anywhere I plan to exercise today too. I completed 60 days of PiYo and I recently started a 60 day hybrid of PiYo & T25. I want to see change and I know…

Weigh in & other thoughts

I was hoping for another larger loss, but I only lost 0.4 pound. But I will take it. I know part of the reason is I did over eat. Although it was GF veggie straws, crackers, it was not good, I am disappointed in myself, but I realize part of it was due to bad meal planning. I just did not have good lunches packed toward the end of the week and when I get bored or stressed at work, I see myself grab for snacks. So this week I will simply plan better and with a 4 day weekend i can plan better. As… Continue

My New Role with WW

Have you heard the news that Weight Watchers is adding 2 more levels of support for their members? There is now a 24/7 chat option online for all members with etools, as well as a phone personal coaching option to add on to your traditional membership. Both of these roles have me working as a one-on-one personal coach with members that are looking for more support than they were getting online or in the meeting room alone. I work with them to identify a challenge they want to address and…

Count it All Joy

Its that time of year ladies and we need to count it all Joy.  Regardless of where we are in this journey of ours.  Whether we are trucking on with out a hitch, or if we find ourselves in the midst of a hic-up.  The ups will out weigh the downs, and the downs will provide us the means of appreciating the ups.  Not to mention --- the learning we gain from our small failures.  Learning curves ... all learning curves.

On the food front - I have let this week get slightly away from me. …

Trying to keep my head up

Hi ladies!  It has been a month since my last post and I'm sad to say that I haven't got my act together nor have I stepped on the scale.  All of my blood work came back negative which although is a huge relief, no auto immune disease!  It is super frustrating not to have a diagnosis and the doctors look at me like I'm nuts.  Ruling out all of that brings me back to my original theory of Fluoroquinolone toxicity which I truly believe I am suffering with.  I feel very defeated as my doctors…

It's been awhile

Well, it's been awhile since I last updated. Guess not a whole lot to tell. Things are still going well with the pregnancy and with life in general. I am still making it to the gym 3 times a week most weeks.Still flexing. Haha.

I am definitely putting on the weight (as I should be at this point) and…

I did not want to do PiYo tonight after work, but I did and I am so glad I did. I only have this week left to complete the 60 days. Eating was good too. I am looking into taking a yoga class. I really want to work on flexibility. LindaB has me wanting to do jogging again. But that won't happen until the weather warms up just a little. The downside of living in the north. I want to do snow shoe meet in January & a cross contry ski meet. There is a nature preserve here that offers these… Continue

Five Tips to a Healthy You

In October I started a year long program to become health coach; something I'd toyed with for years and can do now that I've retired.  Loving the classes heard Robyn Youkills speak today.

Thought her article in the Huffington Post was worth sharing:
