Sometimes the urge to eat something you know you really shouldn't is ridiculously overwhelming to us all. Today was one of those days when a craving almost did me in. It was the smell - the garlic, the butter, the tomato sauce, the cheese. Oh... Read more

So far, no weight lost, but I'm not going to be swayed. Yesterday I went over my calorie goal by a good 500 calories. It is amazing how much a nibble of this and a nibble of that can add up in a hurry. But that's okay. It was a holiday a... Read more

As of yesterday I have officially lost 28 pounds. I am so pumped! That's a two-year old! Yesterday was weigh-in day with the doctor, and also my first fill. I was really apprehensive at first, especially since I HATE NEEDLES, but it was no... Read more
Kissing Co-workers

OK. So none of my coworkers were caught kissing (at least not by me!) and I didn't kiss any coworkers but it got your attention didn't it? Aren't I evil? On the other hand, there was one coworker I really wanted to hug this morning. I wal... Read more

August 1. The year has gone by so fast. It has been two months since I was banded. I have lost weight that I was beginning to think would never leave me. That's an awful lot of weight to lose at once, too. I'm glad it slowed. A... Read more
Food is not our enemy

But it isn't necessarily our friend either. It's sad to say, but I have spent years dieting, and literally have tried everything out there. I have been to two nutritionists, and studied foods like an obsessed person. I know every diet tric... Read more
Masochist? Moi?

I have a friend who is a bit on the "freaky" side. No, really, she is. And she will tell you so. She's spent years trying to convince me to come to the " dark side"..... OK. Well, a couple of times she's dragged me to the dark side, but we are... Read more

OK. I got lost in the woods this weekend. Lost, as in, had to call out the rescue squad and they were gearing up the helicopter to come find me lost. STOP laughing. It all started with a geocache (do a google search - very educatio... Read more

No, really. If I were to be tested, I'm pretty sure they'd tell me I'm ADHD or something. I have a terrible time sticking to things like blogs, and I'm even worse at remembering to answer emails, sometimes. My friends are used to it. They know... Read more
Scales and 5:00 a.m. files
Tuesday, July 08, 2008      1 comments

1. 5:00 am fires suck. But the exercise was great for the calorie burn, so there's always a good point. 2. I have to get someone to lock up my scale and only let me have it once a week. I'm becoming obsessed with weighing every day and I kn... Read more
