I'm hoping you haven't noticed
that the ticker on my weight
is not moving -
I must admit,
I've been having some major food issues -
need to kick those
Girl Scout Cookies
to the c

I have to keep reminding myself
that the scale is only one measure
of health.

And that now I can easily walk
for 30 minutes on my treadmill -
without holding on all the time.
I'm noticing that not only
is my endurance better,
but my balance is better too -
and that's a major thing -
I've always been clumsy,
but the older and stiffer I get,
the harder it is to get up.

And that 251 calories I burned -
how many pancakes does that translate to
on a
Fat Tuesday?

Happy Mardi Gras!!

Blessings to all who visit here,


  1. Here in this part of PA, doughnuts are the thing to eat on Fat Tuesday - people order dozens for the day before fasting for Lent. Hard to stay on a diet with all these goodies around!! Sounds like you're making progress, though, Lynn. Keep up the good work :o)

  2. Today is a special day - just celebrate all the wonderful changes you have made so far. Forget the scale, it usually lies anyway:)

    I have tried to use the treadmill but that flat pounding really bothers my back. I have to bug the DH for an elliptical.

    Happy Mardi Gras Day to you.

  3. I think you can scrap the pancakes!! LOL Good job on the treadmill, keep it up!!


  4. Great job on the treadmill! Lots of love, Debbie

  5. Our mom treated herself today to Reese's peanut butter eggs and she didn't share any with us so we are squealing on her! haha
    Happy Mardi Gras, Miss Lynn!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  6. Maybe giving up the diet for Lent would be a good idea ;-)

  7. Way to go with your 30 minutes on the treadmill!

    I recently started doing these leslie sansone walk at home videos. I've commited to doing 5 miles a day. I'm happy to report I did 5 miles on Monday and Tuesday. So far today I've done 2, 3 more to go through out the day. Baby boys birthday part is in April and I just feel so chuby and feel like I should have lost this stinken baby weight by now! My goal is 5 miles a day 5 days a week.... maybe I'll see results soon! xo

    Keep up the good work :)
