Blogging as Therapy

I've taken physical therapy twice in my life. Once for a torn ligament and another after surgery and 3 months rest after breaking my fibula and detaching my deltoid ligament. The first time came from falling down almost a full staircase when no one else was home, the second from falling down about two or… Continue reading Blogging as Therapy

Betrayed by your own Body

I try really hard not to do so many negative posts and be more positive but over the past couple weeks, my body has been betraying me. I knew all the years of being overweight would eventually hurt my body and since both my Mom and her Mom have had knee replacements, I knew I… Continue reading Betrayed by your own Body

My Biggest Issue with Changing is Other People

People can be aggravating! For me, I always seem to realize just HOW much so when I am attempting to make any change in my own life. I'm sure you know the types of people I'm referring to...The Naysayers, The Controllers, The Know-it-Alls,The Tempters,etc. I'm sure I could come up with a long list!

I hate Math, but I’m loving THESE Measurements!

Time for my weekly weight loss results! AND I'm either at the same weight as last week OR I lost 3 more pounds. Why am I so unsure?

This Tortoise is winning the race, so back off Hare!

After a HUGE 7 pound drop last week which was a GREAT Birthday gift, this week I am down 1 pound. A small number, but exciting none the less.

Another week gone and holding…..

Not exactly sure on my weight today honestly due to totally forgetting the day, eating my breakfast and THEN weighing, but I am pretty sure it's probably the same as last week. 😦 Yea, it's kind of a bummer but I spent most of my weekend helping out a friend with a garage sale to… Continue reading Another week gone and holding…..

Another week done and still waiting on a winner….

No good news to tell you here....My scale registered a gain instead of a loss but it's not because I did anything wrong. It's because I'm a female and this is NOT the right time for weighing...yea, I'm putting it out there. I am bloated and feeling like crap. 😦 I'm not going to put… Continue reading Another week done and still waiting on a winner….

One day at a time….or possibly one minute

I went to the doctor today for a checkup and to ask him some questions and I was faced once again with what I always know will come up: my weight. Even just short term tasks leave me in pain in my muscles and joints and basically, my body is telling me that it's breaking… Continue reading One day at a time….or possibly one minute
