If I had a photograph of you

iS9RPyznAPg Well, it's a picture of me, actually. Front and center in that photo which is my before pic. I'm also going to add a pic that I took after I hit my first goal. I am coming up ... Read more
It Happens to be True

Today's entry is devoted to my greatest supporter. He's been with me through 11 sizes, 200 lbs. up and down, 3 states lived in, and 7 different career paths, all in the span of close to 20 years. Through it all he's been unfailingly suppo... Read more

No joke. Not a good day, although it started off just fine. Not a diet issue, not an exercise issue. Just a job issue. So now I have to look, deal with the resume, all of that stuff. So excuse me if I'm around less. I have t... Read more
Red Sox, you are the only only only

Okay, yeah, I'm a fan. A huge fan (although I'm getting smaller). Today was Opening Day and it all started super-early because it was being played in Tokyo. Things did not look good for our boys. They were losing, 2-0 in the first inning, ... Read more

I'm on a plateau. While they're less than fun, they're not the end of the world. And, frankly, it may turn out to be better for me as, when you continue following plan during a plateau, you tend to lose inches. I haven't been seeing much of an i... Read more

Okay, so the video is weird. Anyway, the idea behind it is that I got some serious honkin' exercise yesterday. We did a 2 1/2 mile walk! And a good third of it was uphill! What happened was, I had a package to return and so we walked t... Read more

It's the Return of the Muffin Top {ominous chord sounds} Sounds like a horror movie, eh? Well, actually the muffin top is good news. The muffin top means I have the confidence to try on a smaller sized pair of pants. The term "muffin t... Read more
The Low Fat/No Fat Trap (Cheese version)
Friday, March 21, 2008      2 comments

I recognize that Spark People does these sorts of comparisons all the time, but I like the idea of stacking up a bunch of different cheeses at once, which they don't seem to do. Now, I love cheese. Not just cheesy videos but also cheese its... Read more

Yesterday, my new stability ball arrived. I duly pumped it up but underinflated it. Now I can't get the pin out in order to reinsert the pump. I'm such a klutz with equipment some times. I think I've fixed it. It's yellow. http://ecx.images-amaz... Read more

*** SPECIAL BULLETIN *** 2 month recap - I'm turning into a shadow of my former self It's been 80 days since I started exercising, 70 since I started portion control and 60 since I started alli. There's a long way to go, to be sure, but... Read more
Fat eating, thin eating
Tuesday, March 18, 2008      2 comments

Oh, the video has nothing to do with this entry; I just find it amusing. Now, fat eating versus thin eating. It's like this. Fat eating is something that probably everyone here has done at some point or another. It's characterized by, ... Read more

Happy St. Paddy's Day! Erin go bragh and all of that. Here in Boston, where there are more Irish folks than anywhere else in the US, it's all green, all the time -- and today I'm resisting homemade Irish soda bread and scones. A nice sent... Read more

Actually I'm only adding the link because I worked out to it yesterday. Nothing like doing preacher curls to the Swinging Blue Jeans' only real hit. Once again, I am a sucker for a cheesy video. In the meantime, we're going computer s... Read more
Slip On, Into Any Disguise
Saturday, March 15, 2008      2 comments

Today's cheesefest video is brought to you by the fact that I tried on my trenchcoat last night, and it's about 2 (or more) inches too big around the waist and stomach, after buttoning. I need new clothes! But I try to be frugal so ri... Read more

It's been a long, cold, lonely (well, not really, but it's in the lyrics) Winter. And I'm freakin' sick and tired of it! But it's getting better. Today started off sunny and not too bone-chillingly cold. Then while I was on the bus, th... Read more
