Three steps forward, two steps back...
Sunday, December 07, 2008      2 comments

It's a familiar dance I do. I was SO close to my first goal weight, then it got all messed up on Friday. So I've basically been eating all weekend, going over my intake for just about everything. Tomorrow is Monday, so I'll be getting right bac... Read more
Turkey Day is over...no more Gobble Gobble!!
Sunday, November 30, 2008      1 comments

I'm afraid having two days of Thanksgiving is NOT the best for someone changing their lifestyle. Thursday at BF's was a day-long eating fest; people constantly in and out, food constantly available, and my temptation avoidance was tested by my ... Read more
Tonight's goal is bought to you by the letter "b"...

As in breakfast!! According to this step in my current stage, I need to blog about a "trouble goal". Well, I guess my biggest one at this point is breakfast - I honestly don't get hungry before 11 a.m. That seems to be putting my body in starv... Read more
I'm yanking them...
Monday, November 17, 2008      3 comments

yup, all my excuses to myself. I'm pulling them all out from under my feet. I need to start eating before 11:00 a.m.; instant oatmeal is NOT that hard to make! And I need to stop munching at night, even if I have switched to healthy snacks. Hop... Read more
Staying Positive
Thursday, November 06, 2008      5 comments

I don't think tomorrow's weighin will show my standard two-pound loss; in fact, it might show a gain. I've been wondering why my numbers are up and decided it could be a number of things: 1. I've definitely created muscle lately (my butt i... Read more
My pants fit!! Well, not all of them...
Wednesday, October 29, 2008      3 comments

Going through my clothes tonight while I put away laundry; found two pairs of pants on my dresser. Oh, yeah, those. I bought them last year without trying them on (I know my size, geez...) and of course couldn't get them up over my hips when I t... Read more
Fighting the mental weight...
Monday, October 27, 2008      2 comments

It's starting...temps in the 30's, dark by 4:30 in the afternoon, cloudy, uck... I'm going to try to make sure I exercise at least five days a week to keep the mental weight away. It starts to feel like there's an extra fifty pounds sitting o... Read more
I'm an apple!! 150
Tuesday, October 21, 2008      1 comments

I was reading an article today on Spark about where you hold your extra weight. I, of course, carry it in my stomach, as evidenced by the fact that I lost 7 inches off my waist and only 2 tops off any other part of my body. Apples are known to... Read more
Different types of progress
Saturday, October 11, 2008      2 comments

This is the first weight-loss attempt where I've taken measurements instead of just weighing myself. I find it interesting that I 've lost the most inches off my waist, since I never have had a real waist, even when I weighed 115-120 lbs. It al... Read more
It's getting better all the time
Tuesday, September 30, 2008      2 comments

Let's see, I've been applying myself the last couple of weeks, and making new habits. I'm exercising at least five days a week, sometimes six, and sometimes I get in two workouts in a day. They're shorter ones, but it's still progress. I'm dr... Read more
Some success...some fear?
Wednesday, September 24, 2008      3 comments

I was so happy when I could add the "Lost 5 lbs" icon today. I'd thought it was never going to happen!! But now I'm starting to hit the fear. "What if I plateau out and stop losing?" "What if I can't keep exercising?" "What if I slip and eat l... Read more
Weekends are STILL a dangerous place...
Sunday, September 21, 2008      2 comments

Went over my nutritional values yesterday, and today I'm awful close to over. What is it about weekends? I guess it's because during the week I'm eating alone at home and it's easy to make good choices; on weekends it's more going out with oth... Read more
Surprisingly enough, a 510 calorie sandwich didn't throw me
Saturday, September 20, 2008      0 comments

Had to try the new Jimmy John's in town. Looked at the menu board and thought turkey with sprouts would be a good healthy choice. Came home to enter nutrition info and looked it up on line - 510 calories, and way too much fat. But my daily to... Read more
Taming the monster....
Thursday, September 18, 2008      2 comments

I feel it happening, my very own Jekyll/Hyde experience. First found this site and I didn't want to chart my nutrition, didn't want to drink my water, didn't want to exercise. I took lots of time to think about it, read other people's stori... Read more
The powers of PMS
Wednesday, September 17, 2008      3 comments

Turns out my whole bad mirror day was most likely a bad case of PMS. The bloat and accompanying rolls of blubber, the mood, all of it. I have evidence!! Already a few days into it the bloat is down (the rolls are still there, but not as bad!),... Read more
