** WARNING: Female bodily functions discussed in this post! ** ------ Well, the easiest way to track my hormonal cycle would be to record it here, on this blog. I find that I like to go back and read about my weight loss. For example, which ... Read more
Medical Questions: Am I Limited for Life, Or Can I Improve This?
Monday, August 13, 2012      0 comments

I knew joining a gym was the right thing to do, but it's also been a real eye-opener! I seem to have lost my obsession with the scale. After a brief dip into 186 territory, I've been 187 (and change) for a couple of days now. But I'm not as... Read more
Ah, Yesterday
Sunday, August 12, 2012      0 comments

Yesterday. Yesterday was wonderful, even though I overindulged. Maybe it was wonderful *because* I overindulged, I don't know. I was doing great on my eating. DH and I were both somewhat disappointed that the gym closes down on a Satur... Read more

Well, the weight loss I saw yesterday morning was, of course, a fluke. I did everything right for the two days prior, and was rewarded with a phenomenal weight loss, far surpassing my schedule. If I could have days like that all the time, I... Read more
Happy Surprise!

Wow, did I ever get a surprise this morning when I stepped on the scale! I've been waiting patiently (oh so patiently) to be able to say "I lost 15 pounds". Well, I do not even get the opportunity. I have now lost *16* pounds. I was 186.2 o... Read more

When I have run into a stalled weight loss, I've been calling it a "plateau", a metaphor for something like a flattened mountain. But I think I've been using the wrong metaphor. I read that for some people weight loss comes in waves, and t... Read more
It's On Me
Wednesday, August 08, 2012      0 comments

Still not public, and I'm not out to make friends on the site. I am trying my two week free trial of SparkCoach. It's a bit different. It forces me to cover everything, instead of only using a few parts of the site. Today I am back on track... Read more
Travelling, Again, and Sticking to the Plan
Tuesday, August 07, 2012      0 comments

We went traipsing through upstate New York again, and stopped to visit our son at camp and see the performances of what he's been working on for the past three weeks. I've eaten at Starbucks, McDonald's, Wendy's, Ruby Tuesday, an upscale se... Read more
Back Where I Want to Be

Okay, so yesterday I was full of sh*t. Literally. It got so bad I had to resort to chemical assistance. Well, I mean, it's not something I'd ever make a habit of, but when you haven't seen any "movement" for a couple of days, seems like it'... Read more
Tired of the Game
Thursday, August 02, 2012      0 comments

I'm becoming tired of this game now. My gym meeting was a HUGE disappointment and I am not making any more progress on my eating plan. I know this is just a lull and I need to keep moving forward. I am trying to change things up... Read more

I don't feel like blogging today. I'm stuck at a plateau, and we joined a gym. I need to add some exercise to the mix, and I hope it helps. At the very least, it will give me something to obsess about other than food.... Read more

Eating breakfast is hard for me, but tends to produce the best results in the long run. I love oatmeal with blueberries and chopped mango. No other sweetener or dairy to go with it, just the fruit and cereal. Delicious! My other habit I nee... Read more

Picked up DH's new car today. So exciting to have a brand new car to ride around in. Bought the car in a nearby city so from the dealership we went directly to the mall in that city, which has an Old Navy. At the Old Navy, the active wear ... Read more
Playing the Game, Badly
Friday, July 27, 2012      0 comments

So. The difference between 189.9 and 190.0 is a mere tenth of a pound. But it is that tenth of a pound which is driving me around the bend! It is holding me back from a major threshold. Clearly I'm not winning the psychological game today.... Read more
Bra Shopping
Thursday, July 26, 2012      0 comments

So, um, I went shopping yesterday looking for a specific kind of bra, which I now know is called a "demi-bra" (one with low-cut cups). But I was very disappointed. The woman in the store was trying to sell me the bras she actually had in my size... Read more
