Growing up and Shrinking Down
Friday, November 16, 2012      0 comments

The weight is creeping down, ounce by tiny ounce. Finally enough for the number to change on my Start page. 33 pounds. DH is down 20 pounds. He just bought a new, smaller belt and fit into jeans with a 35 waist. (Fit nicely, ... Read more
Today in Clothes

Stubborn scale! I don't want to think about it. These size 14 pants are starting to slide down my ... nevermind. And I have a whole pile of like-sized clothes still to be hemmed. (The result of a particularly good trip to Old Navy one... Read more
As Year's End Approaches
Wednesday, November 14, 2012      2 comments

As the end of 2012 approaches, I am worried about my ability to reach my goal, and how I will feel if I don't make it. I'm not sure why the numbers are so important. I mean, it's pretty clear my clothes are falling off me again, so why... Read more
The Scale Is Not the Boss of Me (Except When It Is)

I've not felt much like blogging lately. I think it's related to the depth of this particular weight plateau. I did so well at the end of October, the pounds just dropped off. And now, here I am, hovering around the same weight for what fee... Read more

There are lots of reasons to blog, and one of them is to keep a record of how my weight loss makes me FEEL -- something a line chart does not do. Yesterday I was 171 pounds but for some reason I entered 170 when I recorded my weight on Spar... Read more

It's 10 AM and I have already worked hard at the gym today. I got 20 minutes on the treadmill before going upstairs for my session with the personal trainer (PT). My current workout wear is a mix of size L (newer) and XL (stuff I bought in ... Read more
No Cookies for Me, Thank You

I just saw that someone was starting new team for "moderates" and by reading the definitions of what people think being a moderate means, I can tell you that I am not one. Being a moderate is not something that works for me. I cannot achiev... Read more
A Belated Revelation and an Unexpected Bonus

I didn't realize how I was short-changing myself. SP allows for the calories you burn in exercise when it calculates your daily calorie range. When I signed up initially, I had said that I was fairly sedentary, which was true at the time. A... Read more
More Inches of Me Gone!

Still sitting in a tide pool (plateau) at the moment, even though I made my 30 pounds and 15 percent milestones for October. Today was a measurement day. I've been taking my own measurements since September, and the gym has my August measur... Read more
Looking Forward with Trepidation
Thursday, November 01, 2012      1 comments

It occurs to me, reading the forum thread on what people want to do when they reach their goal weight, that nearly everyone says they want to maintain the weight loss. But, statistically, of all those people, very few of them will actually ... Read more
Mischief Managed

Okay, so the number displayed for me on my start page still says "30 pounds" lost, but my weight on the scale is now 171.6 -- which is below 172, even if it's not quite low enough to officially count as 171. But it still means I've lost 15%... Read more
Windmills of Your Mind

So, there's this thing that happens at the gym sometimes, most often when I am there by myself (my visits to the gym are usually with DH). I want to be sensitive here, because I don't know what's going on. It could be cause for pity, concer... Read more

Yesterday was kind of awesome because we got our act together to do a little cross-border shopping. Both DH and I are changing sizes rapidly, so we had a few specific needs -- well, in his case, a specific need for more jeans. DH is definit... Read more
You Gotta Live a Little

Decided not to weigh myself this morning, since yesterday was a rest day and I didn't go to the gym. (I'm okay with that. I've already exceeded my goals for exercise this week.) The other thing about yesterday is that I went out with my fri... Read more

A Spark friend told me where to find this website (http://www.modelmydiet.com) where I could test out a virtual model of myself at different weights. The picture in this p... Read more
