When I made a pledge last July that I was committed to doing this for the rest of my life, I think God decided to test my determination. Despite logging every bite and staying within my calories and points the majority of days, I have gone up and down the same 2-3 pounds for FOUR … Continue reading Seven-Month Assessment
2020 is at an end, and for me (physically speaking), it has been pretty good. I am actually looking forward to what 2021’s final graphic (like the one above) will be. Pluses for the year: weight loss, walking 2+ miles regularly, ups and downs for emotional health because of Covid, but overall, I’m in a … Continue reading 2020 Progress Report
One of my challenges in losing weight is battling my tendencies to get more food for each point in the Weight Watchers food plan. Those zero-point foods become more attractive, and that’s the way WW intended it to be. If we focus on lean proteins and fresh fruits and vegetables, we will become healthier and … Continue reading Natural and Whole foods – Looking ahead to lifelong habits
Sophie, my 17-year old granddaughter, came over last week and showed me how to make her Famous Chocolate Chip Cookies. Here’s our video about them. And it is truly NO exaggeration when I say that those cookies are AMAZING!

Instead of brewing a cup of herbal tea, I decided to try the drinking chocolate. I made it … Continue reading Review: Lakanto Drinking Chocolate
Total weight loss since I began on 7/19/2020 – 14.2 lbs. October was a good month for weight loss. That is interesting because it FEELS like I backslid somewhat during October. The initial enthusiasm I had started to wane. It was a “commitment versus motivation” time. I will begin November with renewed commitment.
It was a good week. I went WAY over my weekly points but it was mostly from two splurges. The rest of the week I stuck to the plan fairly well. I’m still not moving as much as I’d like – and still not drinking enough water. This week was good for catching up on … Continue reading Weekly Weigh-In – October 30, 2020
I’m trucking along. I’m out of town visiting my mother. And I usually lose a little weight even if I don’t try when I’m at her house. That’s probably a good lesson in not keeping things I shouldn’t eat at my house. There are no chips, candy, and other temptations here!
