Still in the 176-and-change range. Not bad. I guess I'll just enjoy the scenery here in the tide pool for a while, awaiting the next wave of weight loss.... Read more

Still working on my mental preparation for losing even more weight. I think that having a short term goal -- being out of plus-size clothing -- was great, but now I am struggling to work past that, to find a new goal that is meaningful and... Read more

Going past 25 pounds lost feels weird. It's like when I was a kid (in the 70's) and thinking about the year 2000. It seemed so far away, so magical. Oh my gosh, I'd be all of 35 years old when it came around! But it came and went and i... Read more
A Heartfelt Plea to the Weight Loss Fairy
Friday, October 05, 2012      2 comments

Dear Weight Loss Fairy, Thank you for your fat-melting efforts on my behalf. I must say that I can hardly recognize myself anymore after losing 26 pounds in four months. I realize that I should be happy to be shrinking so quickly, but ... Read more
Existential Crisis, or Tempest in a Teapot? Time Will Tell
Wednesday, October 03, 2012      1 comments

I didn't expect this. So far, I have either been so absorbed in the process of losing weight, or else with dreaming about the future when I am thin again, that I have not stopped to reflect on the "inner me". All of a sudden, when the ... Read more

I was going to spend this post complaining about my personal trainer, but I just vented to DH (who has the same PT) and got it out of my system. While not exactly defending PT, DH was able to give me another perspective, and point out to me that... Read more
Patience is a Virtue (Sometimes in Short Supply when I'm Sick)
Monday, October 01, 2012      1 comments

I am going back to the gym today even if I only do something like 10 minutes on the treadmill. NOT going has been the worst thing about this illness. Exercise is what makes me want to drink more water. (I always struggle with the water thin... Read more

Being sick and not being able to go to the gym is trying my patience. I haven't been to the gym since Wednesday. This sickness started with a sore throat on Wednesday night, and it's now Sunday afternoon. My muscles are no longer achy, so t... Read more
Still Sick

Well I recorded my weight today, but I'm not sure I should count it because, being sick, I haven't really been following healthy eating. Well, sort of: I ate 900 healthy calories yesterday, but I should have eaten a bit more. Thank goodness I we... Read more

Oh dear. What started out as a sore throat yesterday evening has become a full-blown illness today, with aches and pains, congestion, sneezing and coughing, and a lost voice. Given the circumstances, I have decided not to go to the gym toda... Read more

Been trying to keep up with clothing myself. It's hard being short -- well, okay, that's definitely a first world problem, but still! When I buy pants, they are usually too long. Sometimes I can luck out and get petite sizes, but most of t... Read more

Okay, after splashing about in the tide pool enjoying the tranquility I'm finally heading to the ocean again to meet the next big wave of weight loss. This morning when I stepped on the scale I had lost almost a full pound overnight. (I mu... Read more

Clothes and weight, weight and clothes. Food: avoiding it, desiring it, choosing it, measuring it, eating it. Exercising. Cardio. Strength. Gym visits. Training. Not drinking enough water. Drinking too much Starbucks. These a... Read more
Inches off, Pounds off -- I'll Take Anything
Sunday, September 23, 2012      0 comments

The inches are coming off faster than the pounds, now. I just "unsubscribed" from the emails sent out by the plus-size store. The last thing I bought there, one month ago, was my size-14 faux leather jacket. I had to search for the size 14 ... Read more
Busy, Not Lazy, Saturday
Saturday, September 22, 2012      0 comments

I'm trying to break out of a slump and it's just frustrating sometimes. But I won't dwell on it too much, except to say that I am up a pound (!) over my lowest weight and I'm not too sure what is going on or how to change it. The change of ... Read more
